AirShip VTOL UAV
AirShip VTOL UAV Hybrid Electric Powertrain
The aircraft?s motors, Hybrid Fuel-to-Electric powertrain and ducted fan rotor assemblies use advanced power plants, specifically designed for present and future relevant VTOL UAV missions. Emphasis has been placed on excess power available at high gross weight to medium density altitude, reliability, and fuel consumption management. High performance from the aircraft?s powertrain and ducted fans set the design criteria. The design goal is to architect and design the right powertrain and propulsion systems first and then develop the VTOL aircraft around it, as has been done with tactical aircraft development.
