Update: LaunchPoint's Recently Completed NASA and DoD Funded Research and Development Projects

Posted on Sat, Mar 4, 2017
LaunchPoint Technologies is continually developing advanced technologies in the field of hybrid electric aircraft power and propulsion systems. Here are some of our recently completed NASA and DoD research and development projects: 
  • DARPA Halbach Motor Development
    • Optimized, Designed , built and tested a 5 kW dual Halbach axial flux motor.
  • Air Force Modular Motor Controller Development
    • Optimized, Designed , built and tested a 1.5 kW modular motor controller.   
  • ARMY AMRDEC UAV Propulsion Motor Development
    • Optimized, designed, built and tested a 15 kW propulsion motor for a UAV system.
  • NASA 6 kW Hybrid Power Source Development
    • Optimized, designed, built and tested a 6 kW genset for a hybrid power source.
  • NASA Wide Temperature Range Motor
    • Optimized and designed a dual Halbach axial flux motor capable of performing in a wide range of temperatures.   
  • NASA Magnetic Gear Development
    • Optimized, designed, built and tested a 13 kW magnetic gear.   This represents a non-contact gear reduction that may solve the reliability issues with gear reduction.
