Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Systems (UAS)
Our gas turbine engines fit well with client partners who are leading the growth of industrial UAS applications.
Core use cases include:
Our S-Thrust™ family of engines will launch with a 2 lb power plant that offers features currently found only in commercial jets.
We understand that our client partners, and their clients are seeking to maximize availability. Because of this, our primary focus is on reliability.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
GenSets / Distributed Generation / Mobile Power
Running a household and managing a business both depend on resources such as heat and electricity.
Gas turbines are being used in hybrid electrical systems that produce combined heat and power, (CHP) A single CHP unit can provide complete facility energy needs with a much higher level of efficiency than legacy systems.
Our CHP GenSet turbine engine can use a variety of fuels, has a lower total cost of ownership (TCO), and works continuously. Even when the wind isn't blowing or the sun isn't shining.
We've chosen to design our initial offering in the 10kW range which is very similar to the scale of our initial UAS products.
Systems can be linked to expand capacity. They also feature managed operation and data-rich performance reporting.
Given our penchant for reliability, we invite you to think about... other things on your list.
Why these two markets?
Our designs have the capability to deliver high performance across a range of scales. The UAS market is well validated, is growing, and does not require prospective buyers to make lengthy decisions or change what they do. In fact, the variety of compatible fuel sources offers them greater flexibility. With only minor adaptations, the same micro-turbine designs can be combined with a generator to efficiently produce heat and power.
Homes, businesses and portions of communities in developing nations will be served by this application as we build scale and momentum.
