OUR EXPERTISE

Electric Aviation Group (EAG) has taken a fresh look at how electric aviation can, on a meaningful scale, impact the Carbon contribution and noise footprint of aviation. EAG can advise on all aspects of electric aviation including technologies, integration, operation, and certification.

Considering the near-term availability of electric propulsion and electric energy storage technologies, EAG has identified that a hybrid electric aircraft capable of carrying 70+ passengers at ranges up to and beyond 800nm is viable and could enter into service before 2030 with full certification. That aircraft would deliver significant fuel savings (up to 15% on a 300nm sector), a reduced noise footprint (that meets requirements for 24/7 operations), and new flexibility for air transport (cabin flex). While it may not immediately make the sector net-zero Carbon, it would be the catalyst for a paradigm shift and the associated technology developments to move towards the global, long-term target. The sector did not wait for the Boeing 747 to be developed. Indeed, the early jet aircraft were significantly noisier and less fuel efficient (by about 75%) than the later embodiments; but they paved the way.

EAG acknowledges that the key to making this step-change will be; to resolve issues associated with thermal management of the power system, to develop low noise propeller/fan technologies and, to establish new system autonomy and safety concepts that are able to maintain and improve the safety of air transport. EAG has already identified and protected a number of IP topics that relate to these specific areas. EAG has not been restricted in its approach by an existing product line and has exercised a synergistic design philosophy to make sure that all the innovations work positively together. The consequence is a regional aircraft that will provide benefit to the environment, the operator, the manufacturer and the passenger.

In addition to pursuing our ambition for developing disruptive & differentiating technologies for Hybrid & All-Electric Aircraft and Hybrid & All-Electric aircraft platforms, EAG will offer consultancy services in the aerospace and aviation sectors. Here are some areas where we can offer some advice/expertise:

  1. Overall Aircraft Design – Conventional/Hybrid/All-Electric Aircraft Design
  2. Hybrid/All-Electric Aircraft Powertrain Systems Design
  3. Overall Aircraft Systems Architecture Design and Integration
  4. Integration of Battery Technology, Structural Batteries, Fuel Cells, Biofuels, etc.
  5. Thermal Management of Electric Motors, Power electronic and Batteries
  6. Systems and Aircraft Autonomy
  7. Advanced Manufacturing – Composites and Advanced Metallics
  8. Aircraft Certification
  9. EAG also has an active interest in the Urban Air Mobility aircraft market due to the overlap of EAG’s protected technologies between the regional hybrid-electric and Urban Air Mobility Aircraft markets. Silene is EAG’s proprietary platform for the exploitation of technologies on VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) aircraft.
  10. Drones Technology and Platform Development
  11. Development of the Aerospace Ecosystem (Aerospace Supply Chain and Academia) – We have strong connections with key universities and the global aerospace supply chain. We can help to create an Ecosystem to Ecosystems collaboration between countries.
  12. Decarbonization of the Aviation Sector
  13. Development of future proof products and services that support the necessary paradigm shifts
  14. Development of new ground infrastructure concepts that will support increased air traffic growth
