New resources join the biennial project of the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) and Innovate UK known as InCEPTion, Integrated Flight Control, Energy Storage and Propulsion Technologies for Electric Aviation.
The English Drive System Design has in fact become key partner of the project as consulting company that will develop the electric motor and the power electronics for a unique highly integrated propulsion module suiting a range of aircrafts.
The project is a joint investment of Government and industry to maintain and enhance the competitive edge of United Kingdom in the civil aerospace design and production. InCEPTion, guided by Blue Bear Systems Research, will in fact develop a modular electric propulsion unit for manned and unmanned aircrafts, vertical take- off and landing (VTOL) and conventional take-off and landing aircrafts (CTOL) for 30 passengers maximum.
