“Hybrid-electric VTOL powertrain passes AFWERX critical design review” – Ampaire

Ampaire reports in a Linkedin post, that it has completed a milestone under the AFVentures TACFI Program with the acceptance of its Critical Design Review by AFWERX.

“Ampaire has designed a hybrid-electric powertrain capable of supporting VTOL operations. The major systems covered were the electric generator, distributed propulsors, and the energy storage system. The completion of this review gives the green light for building and testing the system,” reported the company. “Current all-electric VTOL for DoD applications have significant payload-range constraints. The success of this program will bring hybrid distributed electric propulsion one step closer to commercialization. Hybridization can benefit the industry by cutting operating costs, expanding mission sets, and reducing emissions.”
