Toulouse, July 20, 2022 – Latécoère, a “tier 1” partner of the world’s major aircraft and spacecraft
manufacturers, is proud to announce its contribution to Airbus’ UK-led “Wing of Tomorrow” programme.
The “Wing of Tomorrow” R&T programme tests new technologies for wing architecture and explores
how wing manufacturing and industrialisation can be improved to meet future demands as the sector
emerges from the pandemic.
As a partner of the programme, Latécoère has brought considerable experience in the design and
manufacture of Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems to the project, developing two demonstration
systems which will be delivered to Airbus before the end of the year. Further to this work, Latécoère will
be delivering the Folding Wing Tip electrical wiring system.
Latécoère is managing its contribution to “Wing of Tomorrow” from its Interconnection Systems offices
in Bristol, UK, with support from the sites of Hamburg, Germany, and Toulouse, France. This project
also benefits from the financial support of Innovate UK, the UK’s national innovation agency.
