In fulfilling our unique role in the global aerospace marketplace, Triumph Group, Inc. operates three Technology Centers of Excellence (TECs) with specific product-focused areas of R&D expertise. TEC teams undertake contracted and independent R&D projects in design, materials and process technologies; prototyping; and transition to production. Our in-house laboratories offer extensive capabilities for materials, structures and systems testing; structural design and analysis; propulsion system development; control system development; and wind tunnel model development and instrumentation. The Triumph Group exhibit at DMC 2014 will present a working demonstration of the product of a cooperative IR&D project between two of our TECs − our advanced composite wing flap and electromechanical actuation system. The wing flap deploys using our patented control technology. Technical experts will be in the exhibit to further discuss the demonstrated advances.
