SAGE 1 – Open Rotor

SAGE 1 will continue its own Open Rotor programme over a slightly longer period of time, targeting  2017-2018, provided that suitable complementary funding source is available. Within the Clean Sky timescale (2016) and funding, SAGE 1 will continue to mature the main enabling technologies and components, to prepare for full demonstration.
