Electrical Control Hardware Operator, ECHO
Technology to locate targets fully automatically without human supervision objects in satellite imagery.
More Electrical Aircraft (MEA) is essential for innovative aircrafts designs in the early future. The MEA concept provides for the utilization of electric power for all non-propulsive systems. Traditionally these non-propulsive systems are driven by a combination of different secondary power sources such as hydraulic, pneumatic, mechanical and electrical. Recent technological advances in the field of power electronics, fault-tolerant architecture, electro-hydrostatic actuators, flight control systems, high density electric motors, power generation and conversion systems have ushered the era of the MEA.
This trend is accelerating, as aircraft OEMs collaborate with their suppliers to design new systems and implement new electrical-intensive architectures. Adoption of the MEA concept is seen as critical enabler for the aircraft industry to unlock significant improvements in terms of aircraft weight, fuel consumption, total life cycle costs, maintainability and aircraft reliability. As more and more MEA research is done, the need of efficient Energy Management inside the aircraft becomes more critical. Aerosertec ECHO prototype will try to give answer to this issue.
