Projects :

DOTNAC : Development and Optimization of THz NDT on Aeronautics Composite Multi-layered Structure

European Project n FP7-AAT-2010-RTD-1, started in september 2010 (36 months). The main goal of this project is to develop a non destructive testing tool based on THz rays, without contact and transportable on site. This tool has to be integrated in industrial chain et has to allow the detection of surface, sub-surface or in-depth defects in materials used in aeronautics. The project partners (not listed before) are : 
    • Ecole Royale Militaire (Bruxelles, Belgium, Project coordinator), 
    • Verhaert New Products & Services NV (Bruibeke, Belgium),
    • Innov Support (Kmokke-Heist, Belgium), 
    • Franhaufer IPM (Münich, Germany), 
    • CNRS (LOMA, LaBRI, Talence, France), 
    • Fundacion Centro de Tecnologias Aeronauticas (Minano, Spain), 
    • LGAI Technological Center,
    • SA (Barcelona, Spain), 
    • Centre Internacional de Metodes Numerics en Enginyeria (Barcelona, Spain), Israeli
    • Aerospace Industries LTD (Lod, Israël).


The Quanticardi project consists in developing the use of positron emission tomography (PET) imaging in the field of cardiology in Europe. The project has been funded by the French government and accredited by Atlanpole Biotherapies as part of the cluster’s radiopharmaceuticals theme. Quanticardi is led by the company Lemer Pax, with Keosys, Arronax and the University of Nantes’ Subatech, IRCCyN and CRCNA groups as project partners.
