Silver Atena offers the aircraft industry technical solutions for autonomous electrical air taxis.

Silver Atena – system supplier for air taxis

Silver Atena, supplier of safety-relevant electronics systems and performance electronics, is increasingly positioning itself in aerospace in the areas of electric and autonomous flying.

The company has been a sought-after system supplier for the aerospace industry for decades and is intensively engaged in the new technical challenges for vertical take-off electric light aircraft. The current portfolio offers customers of the future aerospace industry technical solutions in key areas of electric and autonomous flying: electric drives and actuators, power supply and distribution including battery management, avionics, computer platforms for flight control and route planning. With its range of engine governors and starters/generators the company also offer solutions for hybrid drive systems.

Both established companies in the aircraft industry, as well as numerous start-ups are working on mobility concepts which rely on autonomous electrical air taxis. The topics of autonomy and electric propulsion not only break new ground in technical implementation, but also especially in certification in civil aviation. Here Silver Atena can contribute its many years of experience in the development and manufacture of systems in accordance with international aerospace standards and in compliance with aviation safety regulations to development partnerships.

Contributing to electrical drives

Silver Atena develops and delivers inverters for highly-dynamic electrical drives, as are also used in modern aerospace. With voltages of up to 900 volts and outputs of up to 500 kW the inverter portfolio covers a multitude of applications in the field of electrical drives. Thanks to a modular approach, Silver Atena can offers solutions with low technical risks with tried and tested modules, which correspond to the high safety requirements of the aerospace sector right from the start. The inverters can be flexibly adapted to the available space, as well as to cooling with air or water, and thereby achieve a specific output of up to 15 kW/kg.

"Safety systems developed and tested according to aerospace standards that combine high performance with low weight and compact design - that is what we contribute to the development of these innovative aircraft", says Josef Mitterhuber, Managing Director of Silver Atena. "Not only do we supply concepts, but also develop prototypes and series-produce electronic system components that can quickly and safely overcome the technical hurdles in the development of new air taxi mobility concepts."
