Integrated Propulsion Module (IPM) comprises our family of ducted electric propulsors, which set a new benchmark for efficiency, safety and low annoyance. Denoting their maximum thrust in kgf, we have developed three distinct market offerings:
Tackling the environmental impact of aviation is by no means our only goal. We see noise in particular as a key issue with modern-day aircraft, which is why we have been conducting world-first research projects on the noise production of fan blades. Here are the key issues with noisy aircraft that we look to solve:
Areas suffering the impacts of noisy aircraft will often impose overnight curfews, greatly reducing the operational hours of an airline. Such a reduction in business impacts the profitability of an airline greatly.
Noise issues not only affect the lives of home owners in the area, but can lead to the regulation of airline operation, reducing profitability and damaging the reputation of a company.
Noisy aircraft may need to fly at a higher altitude or along a less direct flight path to reduce the consequences of the sound produced. This increases flight time and energy expenditure - increasing cost.
Taxes exist in certain areas which require aircraft operators to pay for the disturbance they produce as a result of noise. This outgoing cost decreases the profitability of an airline.
