Scope of the DRESS project is to research, develop and validate a distributed and redundant electrical steering system technology for an aircraft nose landing gear. The new system aims to:
• reduce system weight at aircraft level, replacing the current hydraulic actuation system with an electric one.
• improve aircraft safety, achieving higher system redundancy levels compared to the current technology capabilities.
This paper presents an outline of different activities occurring in the DRESS project and also shows preliminary results of the new system performance.
