Compañía Española de Sistemas Aeronáuticos (CESA) is a European leader in fluid mechanics and electro-mechanics, growing on the base of a 20-year experience inherited from Construcciones Aeronáuticas, S.A. (C.A.S.A.) in this activity and more than 25 years of own experience.
 CESA is currently an established supplier to European aircraft industries such as AIRBUS, AIRBUS Military, BA Systems, Cassidian, Alenia, etc. as well as other worldwide manufacturers such as Sikorsky (USA) or IAI (Israel) for product lines including Landing Gear components, Flight Controls, Hydraulic systems, Pneumatic/Fuel/Engine accessories or EMAs. Particular attention is put on new technologies and new kind of performances required to the aircraft; design and analysis tools as well as human skills are continuously updated with the involvement into research programs conducted with or without participation of other partners.

Role in the project

Based on its experience on electromechanical actuation systems on board, CESA is responsible for Task 4.2: Development of HOR for a better, safer and quicker accessibility to different areas of equipment thanks to HOR with electrical actuation included for opening/closing/blocking cowl doors at intermediate positions.
CESA is Leader in fluid mechanics with great experience in Pneumatic/Fuel/Engine accessories and is also responsible of Task 4.4: Innovative pneumatic duct and equipment within the WP4.
