Lowell, MA | March 9, 2021 – ePropelled, the Massachusetts-based technology company offering leading-edge electromagnetic systems, unveils today the next-generation family of power generation and propulsion products for UAV and other aviation applications. The ePropelled UAV product line consists of starter generators, intelligent power systems, DC supplies and electronic engine starters that operate with internal combustion engine UAVs, and electric propulsion motors, and air motor controllers for eVTOLs, full electric, and hybrid aircraft.
The entire family of products is the smartest, highest performance, and most comprehensive product line for UAVs and drones on the market due to its software control and advanced data and analytics capabilities.
The electrical Power Systems family includes Starter Generators, Intelligent Power Systems (PMUs) and Electronic Engine Starters. These modular components can be mixed and matched to supply 500 watts to 12 kW power. Our SGs have enough torque to start the engine while providing power like an alternator. The power systems offer UAV designers the unique option to add hybrid technology to optimize engine size while using the battery for power assist on take-off, range extension, or emergency landings.
ePropelled has the broadest range of electrical Propulsion Systems for mission-critical UAV applications. As commercial applications require larger payloads, propulsion systems need to scale in power, diagnostics, and performance. The electric Propulsion Systems include both Propulsion Motors, ranging from 500 watts to 12 kW, and matching Motor Controllers.
“Our systems are fully integrated and allow UAV and aircraft designers the time to focus on other aspects of their job. All of our products come in various power ratings to meet hundreds of possible applications. Pairing products together gives designers the flexibility and capabilities they never had before,” said Nabeel Shirazee, CTO of ePropelled. “Our innovative solutions are light, have high energy efficiencies, and our patented technology enables continuous operating temperatures approaching 205°C/401°F permitting UAVs to fly smarter, higher, and farther…”
Power and propulsion systems are critical to the success of ever-changing and complicated UAV mission profiles. Considering both during the design can contribute to lighter and more efficient aircraft. Built-in software enables the operator to receive real-time data monitoring, device information, connection status, event-based alerts, engine starter functionality, and acknowledgment of transmitted messages. For example, this critical information can alert the pilot to fuel and other device emergencies allowing them to land the aircraft safely.
Nick Grewal, CEO of ePropelled, explains, “ePropelled recognizes the importance of high-performance electric propulsion and power systems in the commercial and defense UAV markets. These markets are poised to revolutionize how people and goods move, how companies collect data, and how security is ensured. ePropelled is the only company that has both UAV power and propulsion systems. The commercial drone market size was $22.5 billion in 2020 and it will grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 13.8% to almost double in 2025 at $42.8 billion. These products were designed with these customers in mind using quality materials, state-of-the-art engineering and testing, and real-world applications.”
