CANEUS FBW partner Bombardier found use of 'fly by wire' systems reduced average load by roughly 600 pounds per plane, improved systems integration, reduced aggregate weight by roughly 1000 pounds, and composite wiring and connectors weight by 120 pounds.
Aerospace leaders from around the globe will discuss the advances and possible future applications of the FBW technology during the 2011 CANEUS Fly-by-Wireless workshop between 14 and 17 June 2011.
CANEUS International is a non-profit organisation directed by its members which aims to serve the needs of the aeronautics community by fostering development of Micro and Nano technologies for aerospace applications.
"Caneus grew out of my own frustration," explained Pimprikar, who also heads the Center for Large Space Structures and Systems, an R&D initiative funded by the government of Canada.
The role of Caneus, he said, is to confirm that the technology works, and bring together a consolidated team of inventors, investors, business people, and systems developers to lift the technology into the skies.
In 2004, the Caneus conference helped to line up sponsors and funding for 14 different MEMS concepts.
Caneus actually formed a company, Caneus NPS Inc., to help it showcase the industry's ability to move MEMS technologies swiftly and inexpensively from concept to commerce The NPS of the name stands for "nanopicosatellite," the designation given to very small spacecraft that MEMS can make possible.
and Canadian government funding, Caneus NPS wants to do just that.
Sensors for harsh environments have also shown up on the radar screens of Caneus and many other organizations as well.
