IMAGE project aims to reduce the noise produced by aircraft during take-off and landing operations. IMAGE project is focused on reducing the airframe noise by tackling both the landing gear and high-lift devices, as well as engine noise. The use of active and passive control devices, which interact with the flow reducing the noise, defines the key strategy. The most promising control devices under analysis are plasma actuation, turbulence screens (meshes) and innovative porous materials (acoustic liners).​
