The MUSIC-haic project is being carried out by a consortium (led by ONERA, The French Aerospace Lab) made up of 14 partners from 4 different EU member states and the Russian Federation. The consortium consists of ONERA, CIRA, TU Braunschweig, TU Darmstadt, Airbus Defence and Space GmbH (Airbus Central Research & Technology), GE Deutschland Holding GmbH and their third party General Electric Company Polska Spolka z Ograniczona Odpowiedzialnoscia, Rolls-Royce plc, Safran Aircraft Engines, Airbus Operations SAS, Dassault Aviation, ANDHEO, ARTTIC and Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & CO KG.


Airbus is the world’s leading aircraft manufacturer whose customer focus, commercial know-how, technological leadership and manufacturing efficiency have propelled it to the forefront of the industry.
Airbus SE is a European limited liability public holding company (Societas Europaea) with its registered office in the Netherlands. It is the holding company of a group of entities, of which Airbus Operations SAS is a member, having its head office in France. The mission of Airbus is to design, manufacture, and sell civil and military aeronautical products worldwide. It holds about 50% of the world market for civil aircraft with more than 100 seats.
AIRBUS OPERATIONS S.A.S is strongly involved in the design and manufacture of civil aircraft, in connection with several partners and sub-contractors. Its activities allow it to get access to airline feedback, flight test data and aircraft design means. Investment in the development of research and technology is key for the future of the company and as such AIRBUS is a key player in some of the major research activity in Europe today particularly in the EC Framework Programmes.

Role in the project

AIRBUS will provide industrial requirements for the 3D Tools that will be produced. It will also validate the ONERA 3D Tools for representative test cases of probe installation effects, using for it the already available HAIC flight test database. As an outcome of this activity, it will participate to the definition of best practices.
