Aircraft require a variety of secondary inlets and outlets mostly for environmental control systems, APU operation, ventilation and cooling purposes, e.g. engine bay ventilation or cooling of electronic equipment. New shapes of aircraft wing secondary inlets and outlets could be designed and assessed in search for optimized solutions. New concepts include adaptive structures and hidden integration within the engine intake. A proposal has been written and the group has been endorsed by both the GoR and the Council. The action group, AD/AG-57, had its kickoff in 2018.
