FUCAM Objectives

The main objective of the FUCAM project is to develop a conceptual aircraft cabin design tailored to the Asian market and effective for the future (after 2025), for short and medium range aircrafts, which will differ from the worldwide standard cabin of today. The FUCAM project will analyse the user requirements of the airlines and passengers in Japan and two other key markets representative of the Asian area (China, South-East Asia).

In parallel and in order for the project to meet the Asian passenger affinity towards tradition and innovation, FUCAM will establish a panorama of the innovative cabin technologies emerging in Europe and Japan. From these inputs, it will compose a cabin concept capable of satisfying the collected requirements, while incorporating the most promising enabling technologies.


To frame the overall objectives of FUCAM, the focus for the concept development is:

  • Year "~2025+"
  • Cabin architecture and systems development addressing passengers' and airlines' needs, while taking into account aircraft manufacturer's integration and performance constraints.
  • Topics such as boarding / de-boarding, seating, communication, entertainment, cabin lighting, air quality, health, security, cabin reconfiguration, mass reduction and potential new topics coming from project requirement activities will be addressed.
  • Three Regional Asian Markets: Japan and neighbouring countries, China and South East Asia.
  • Today’s short / medium range commercial aircraft (i.e.: A320 family, 737 family).
  • “Idea to Application” positioning, increase Technical Readiness Level from 1 to 3 (for cabin interior layouts, seats and monuments).

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 690674.
