TOGETHER, EVTOL IS OURS
High-power, high-voltage, high-bandwidth interconnect technologies for electric Vertical TakeOff and Landing aircraft (eVTOLs).
YOUR ONE-STOP AIR MOBILITY INTEREST PAGE
Yesterday’s dreams of electric-powered air taxis and flying cars/personal air vehicles (PAVs) are turning into real Urban Air Mobility (UAM) projects. Hundreds of commercial-drone and electric-vertical-takeoff-and-landing aircraft (eVTOL) programs are driving advances in electric-propulsion motors, power distribution, positioning systems, telenetworking, and cockpit/mission systems. These opportunities are inspiring designers to explore components that can optimize size, weight, and power (SWaP) for line replaceable units (LRUs) in UAM innovations. That’s why TE Connectivity (TE) offers solutions to handle high voltages and high kW peak output. We also provide interconnect technologies to handle the low-voltage and high-bandwidth needs of mission systems and inflight-entertainment (IFE), connectivity, and control applications.

Power and Power Distribution
As with electric and hybrid-electric aircraft in general, electric-powered vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, rotorcraft, commercial drones, and personal air vehicles (PAVs) employ significant amounts of electrical power to enable vehicle takeoff and maintain flight. As a result, designers face many electrical interconnect challenges when handling high voltages and high kW peak output for electric propulsion motors, inverters, controllers, batteries, infotainment, and sensors. To deploy successful prototypes and products rapidly, designers benefit by understanding these challenges and how to “follow-the-wire” using TE technologies and expertise to solve them.

Avionics, Flight Control, Navigation
Today’s advanced-air-mobility (AAM) and electric-powered vertical-takeoff-and-landing (eVTOL) aircraft promise a quieter, environmentally cleaner alternative to hydrocarbon-fueled cars and conventional rotorcraft. To make urban air mobility (UAM) a reality, it is critical to minimize gross takeoff weight, including the weight of avionics and related interconnects and cabling.
