Connecting the Future of Flight
White Paper Overview
UAM and electric-powered vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft promise a greener, cleaner alternative to hydrocarbon-fueled cars and conventional rotorcraft. But to make UAM a reality before 2030, project design teams must solve many avionics challenges in fly-by-wire and autonomous flight systems.
In the 1990s, rotorcraft safety significantly improved with the development of Prognostic Health Management (PHM) and Health Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS). Now, those technologies, along with data flow from autonomous flight control systems, impose significant connectivity challenges.
In this white paper from TE Connectivity, learn about the “follow-the-wire” approach and how it can help avionics designers and electrical-wiring-interconnect-system (EWIS) engineers advance UAM avionics.
