The US Air Force report to Congress details the overview, approach, milestones, and future plans for the AFWERX Agility Prime program. This new approach is accelerating and adopting dual-use technologies in the Department of the Air Force, specifically for the transformative vertical lift and electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) industry.
While numerous electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft move toward certification, NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, is researching how these aircraft operate and interact with an electric-propulsion system.
magniX, the Redmond, Washington-based developer of electric power systems, announced on April 28 that it has partnered with AeroTEC and Air Tindi on the NASA Electrified Powertrain Flight Demonstrator project.
With new contracts, partnerships and flight tests spanning multiple countries and companies, efforts are advancing to develop electric conventional takeoff and landing (eCTOL) and electric short takeoff and landing (eSTOL) aircraft for advanced air mobility (AAM) applications.
