Embarks Safran Landing Systems expertise in design, validation and complex manufacturing.
Braking control systems
A global solution
Safran Landing Systems braking systems feature a large number of best in class equipments (hydraulic, electric, electronics), integrated with proprietary software algorithms, for unrivalled answers to customers’ needs around the world.
Safran Landing Systems designs state of the art avionics for critical systems using multichannel electronic control units for normal and emergency operations, capable of addressing hydraulic or electric braking systems architectures. Safran Landing Systems braking systems embark advanced braking functions such as automated or differential braking and proprietary antiskid algorithms for unrivalled braking performance.
Safran Landing Systems’ braking manifolds are complex integrated manifolds supporting multiple servo-valves to deliver hydraulic power to the brakes. They can be customized for our customer's specific architecture or fluid needs, including high-pressure systems up to 5000 psi. The servo-valves on the manifolds, commanded by the braking control unit, deliver state of the art, seamless braking performance whatever the landing conditions.
Landing gear extension and retraction systems
A portfolio of innovative and performing solutions
Safran Landing Systems extension and retraction systems feature a large number of best in class equipments (hydraulic, electric, electronics), integrated with proprietary software algorithms, for unrivalled answers to customers’ needs around the world.
Electromechanical back up actuator (EBMA)
Safran Landing Systems’ electromechanical back up actuator performs the extension / retraction function of the aircraft in case of malfunction in normal mode. The combination of the electrical technology of the alternate System with the hydraulic normal system brings high segregation and associated optimal safety. Electrical technology allows reduction of piping, resulting in weight savings and simplified installation onto the aircraft.
Safran Landing Systems designs state of the art uplock packages featuring maintenance and lubrication free, design optimized uplocks, that generate operational cost reductions, weight savings, and high reliability.
High loading capability, able to sustain the most demanding environmental requirements, and possible operations in a degraded environment such as imbalance engine operations.
Single Integrated Manifold (SIM)
The Single Integrated Manifold designed by Safran Landing Systems provides centralization of the LGERS hydraulic distribution in a single Alternate actuation mean to back up the system in case of malfunction in normal mode. The combination of the electrical technology of the alternate System with the hydraulic normal system brings high segregation and associated optimal safety. Electrical technology allows reduction of piping, resulting in weight saving and simplified installation onto the aircraft. Safran Landing Systems’ unique performance in design and complex manufacturing has enabled this complex equipment for the benefit of our customers. As innovation shall not end, Safran Landing Systems is now challenging their own know-how to acquire specific design and industrial additive manufacturing capabilities. The SIM has been specifically redesigned and is already showing substantial weight savings, thus confirming the potential of this leading edge technology.
Landing and braking control systems
A wide range of solutions
Safran Landing Systems Steering Control Systems feature a large number of best in class equipments (hydraulic, electric, electronics), integrated with proprietary software algorithms, for unrivalled answers to customers’ needs around the world.
Safran Landing Systems designs state of the art wheel steering control systems that embark our extensive know-how in hydraulic or electric actuation and rotary position sensors. High efficiency control loop using proprietary algorithm for advanced functions which can be hosted in dedicated, low cost control units or embedded in aircraft modular avionics.
Local Electro Hydraulic Generation System (LEHGS)
Safran Landing Systems’ Local Electro-Hydraulic Generation is a complex autonomous hydraulic generation system that backs up the normal system in case of malfunction. Electrically powered by Safran Landing Systems micro-pumps, it is light, compact and independent, resulting in weight savings and simplified installation onto the aircraft.
PresSense connected aircraft tyre solution
Unique combination of Michelin Aircraft Tyre’s know-how and Safran Landing Systems’ expertise in complex control systems, PresSense is the first connected tyre solution for aircraft designed to facilitate maintenance operations for airlines. Thanks to its state of the art sensor embedded in the aircraft tyre and RFID technology, PresSense sends the tyre data wirelessly to the operator’s smartphone. Safran Landing System’s innovative algorithm enables hot tyre checks for optimal turnaround times. The data is also available through a web interface for maximum traceability.
Electric taxiing system
The electric taxiing system on which Safran Landing Systems is working is destined for the next generation of short- and medium-haul aircraft and must allow the aircraft to move around the tarmac without using their main engines. It reduces aircraft fuel consumption (-4%), CO2 emissions (-61 %), NOx (-51 %) and noise while freeing movements, including in reverse and with successive stops/starts and so, improves flight punctuality.
