Keywords: landing gear actuation, electro-mechanic actuator, kinematic, system design
This paper presents the complete development process of an electro-mechanic actuation system for extension and retraction of a nose landing gear of a commercial aircraft. Novel kinematic concepts are introduced and the model based design process is described. The functionality of the chosen concept is demonstrated in a test rig.
