The consortium also presented the main tangible program results: the main hybrid composite-INVAR wing and moveable surfaces tools and the first integrated 7 meters long wing upper panel. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The achieved maturity has been considered valuable. No major actions have been identified to close the CDR.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">T-WING is now focused on the completion of design phase including the LHD support for NGCTR-TD permit to flight achievement and manufacturing phase.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">​​​July 2, 2020<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><br><br></p><p><br></p>2020-07-01T22:00:00Z
