Project Overview

FᴜᴛPʀIɴᴛ50 is an EU funded collaborative research project set out to identify and develop technologies and configurations that will accelerate the entry-into-service of a commercial hybrid-electric aircraft in a class of up to 50 seats by 2035/40.

The aim was to collaboratively co-create the FᴜᴛPʀIɴᴛ50 Roadmap to visually communicate the alignment, timing and regulatory status of all items including Concept Products, Capabilities and Projects.

The team members are highly competent international consortium that brings together a mix of expertise – one OEM , two SMEs and 11 Universities and research organisations.

Project Challenge

  • Collating and visualising key project data
  • Developing a roadmap that can simply and visually communicate various aspects of the roadmap
  • Produce an environment that can easily share roadmap data and content with external people
  • Co-create a story that is interactive and enables collaboration, feedback and comments

Visual Collaboration Roadmap

A collaborative approach was taken with team to:

  • Agree the structure of the roadmap
  • Develop a meta data template and data governance
  • Configure views and relationships/dependencies to show the “cause and effect”, “golden thread” between roadmap items
  • Produce panels to add additional information and content PDF,s images, links, videos, etc.)

Project Benefits

The FutPrInt50 project has successfully crafted a comprehensive roadmap on technology and certification, outlining crucial steps towards the realization of a Hybrid Electric Aircraft by 2035-2040.

  • A roadmap that tells the Story
  • A place to share information and support future collaboration
  • Facilitate an engaging and interactive experience
  • Collation and analysis of results, meticulously organized for easy searching and visualization
  • Dynamic views such as the timeline and status
  • Regulatory readiness view emphasizes the critical focus required to achieve certification for the Hybrid Electric Aircraft

The FuTPrInt50 roadmap stands as an interactive overview, mapping the trajectory towards FUTure PRopulsion INTegration for 50-seat regional hybrid-electric aircraft, aimed at their successful entry-into-service by 2035-2040.

futprint50 roadmap

FᴜᴛPʀIɴᴛ50 Roadmap presented at the EASN, Barcelona, 2022.

The FᴜᴛPʀIɴᴛ50 team attended the EASN conference in Barcelona September, 2022.  This was a 2 day event were Evert Windels and myself (Jason Hier) presented the FᴜᴛPʀIɴᴛ50 Roadmap in the main auditorium.

The Roadmap, powered by SharpCloud provides an overview of the Strategy, Concept Product and alignment to the Capabilities and the Projects to deliver the Capabilities.  A regulatory assessment and status of the Roadmap, was completed against Certification Specifications and Acceptable Means of Compliance for Large Aeroplanes, CS 25.

Co-creating the Roadmap

“Jason and myself collaborated in creating the interactive roadmap for Hybrid Electric aircraft within the FutPrInt50 project.

Jason’s experience and knowledge made us able to deliver more than was expected. His thorough understanding of creating model based interactive roadmaps challenged us take the extra step and visualize more than was initially anticipated.

I can highly recommend working with Jason, as he pushes you to higher levels.”

“Jason helped us shape the #futprint50 roadmap into shape. He gave us great advice and helped us navigate from the general to the implementation.

He was also dedicated and a key element to the final product. I would welcome working again with him for a similar endeavour.”
