Government of Quebec supports Bell project

On Friday, February 22, the Minister of Economy and Innovation and Minister Responsible for the Lanaudiere Region, Pierre Fitzgibbon, announced that phase 3 of the SA2GE project will encompass four promising projects. Totalling $50M (including $25M in subsidies), phase 3 of the SA2GE project will continue until March 31, 2021.

The four promising projects of this third phase include:

The Propulsion for safe, silent, eco-friendly and efficient urban operations (POUSSEE) project, led by Bell, which aims to develop technologies that will improve the propulsion power and energy efficiency of vertical-lift vehicles, and at the same time reduce their weight and external noise;

The Smart, eco-friendly wing (AILE) project, led by Bombardier, which aims to develop technologies that will integrate new multipurpose wing concepts to business and commercial aircraft so as to optimize aircraft aerodynamics and reduce fuel consumption;

The Integrated Modular Avionics for low-impact air navigation (EcoNav-3) project, led by CMC Electronics, which aims to develop new navigation technologies that will reduce the ecological footprint of air transport by optimizing flight plans in particular;

The Highly reliable compact photonic modules for airborne communication and navigation systems project, led by SME TeraXion, which aims to develop optical photonic technologies for aircraft systems with a view to replacing larger, heavier systems with greener, high-performance optical circuits.

SA2GE's goal is to develop innovative and game-changing technologies for the future of Quebec's aerospace sector with a view to mobilizing Quebec's SMEs, universities and research centres and reducing the sector's environmental footprint.
