During the COVID-19 crisis, most of the partners' facilities were closed and access to their facilities was limited, but the ACASIAS team continued part of the work remotely.
On September 1st ,2020, an ACASIAS meeting was held with the objective to verify Milestone 6, Review of intermediate test results of ACASIAS innovations. During this meeting the progress of the project was presented to the Industrial Advisory members of Diehl AviationGmbH, Dassault Aviation, Lufthansa Technik, Airbus Defence and Space, and EASA. The meeting concluded that the results presented are satisfactory and that Milestone 6 has been achieved. The project focuses now on the finalisation phase, which has been delayed due to the partners’ facilities lock-down. Despite the delay, all the partners are strongly motivated to achieve all activities and deliverables before the end of the project.
To summarise, the ACASIAS project is showing good progress and all its partners will continue their joint effort to achieve the project objectives.
