LaunchPoint Technologies Awarded DoD-Army SBIR Phase I "Hybrid VTOL Aircraft Propulsion System"

Hybrid-electric transitioning vehicles could replace many of the Army’s large UAVs that currently need a catapult system or a runway for takeoff.  A hybrid propulsion system is the key ingredient for these types of VTOL UAVs.  In this Phase I, LaunchPoint Technologies plans to develop a hybrid propulsion system in the 80 kW range for VTOL systems.
