  1. Advanced Extreme Rapid Deployment Emergency Whole Airframe Recovery Parachute System for Urban Air Mobility

    SBC: Aviation Safety Resources, Inc.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Urban/Advanced Air Mobility (UAM/AAM) technology is advancing rapidly with over 300 designs underway.  Primary to the challenges of an electric Vertical Take Off and Landing (eVTOL) is what will happen if the vehicle suffers a failure in flight (especially in VTOL).  Establishment of a level of safety is paramount in the success or failure of the UAM market. Currently, there is not a practical r ...

  5. Flight-weight, High Capacity, Energy Dense Solid State Battery

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Given their current energy density, battery packs for eVTOLs represent a substantial portion of the vehicle weight, and because electrically powered aircraft do not lose weight as they fly, range and endurance are negatively effected. Furthermore, for eVTOLs, a doubling of battery capacity only yields a 9% increase in endurance. This clearly points to the need for battery pack technology that is s ...
