Solutions for Urban Air Mobility
White Paper Overview
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-powered 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.
In this white paper from TE Connectivity, explore solutions to handle high voltages and high kW peak output as well as interconnect technologies to handle the low-voltage and high-bandwidth needs of mission systems and inflight entertainment (IFE), connectivity, and control applications.
