LaunchPoint Technologies Awarded NASA SBIR Phase I "Energy Management for Electric Flight"
The management of energy micro-grids in electrically-powered aircraft is complex and challenging – especially with the safety and redundancy requirements for aircraft carrying people. In this SBIR project, LaunchPoint will address micro-grid management using reconfigurable component and system models combined with real-time system optimization. With this approach, energy is conserved and rapid reconfiguration is achieved in the event of faults. (Principal Investigator: Dr. Brad Paden)
