Critical Software, through its subsidiary Critical Materials, was chosen to participate in what is considered the largest European Research & Development (R&D) project in the aeronautical sector.
The project should represent for Critical about two million euros, in turnover, in the next four years, said Júlio Viana, Chief Technical Officer (CTO) of Critical Materials, in statements to Jornal de Negócios.
The technology was selected to participate in the Intelli-SHM (Structural Health Monitoring), integrated in the European aeronautical R&D program CleanSky – JTI.
Intelli-SHM aims to develop integrated systems for monitoring, diagnosing and predicting components of new generation aircraft.
Critical Materials will participate in this project with VS2 technology, a solution capable of performing aircraft maintenance diagnostics and prognoses in order to extend its useful life, maximize flight hours, without prejudice to safety, and reducing costs.
The company has been developing this technology for about a year and a half, an investment of around 700 thousand euros, of which 70 percent is financed by the National Strategic Reference Framework (QREN).
