Electric Power Systems released its EPiC battery module family during an eVTOL Writers Group interview sponsored by the Vertical Flight Society. The Electric Power Systems team presented on its new technology and was followed by a Q&A session led by Graham Warwick of AviationWeek.
The EPiC battery technology addresses some of the most prevalent roadblocks to advanced air mobility, including safety, certification, cost, weight, and infrastructure. The EPiC battery modules are lightweight and low-cost while providing optimum power in a compact design. The modules will be FAA and EASA-certified to the highest industry safety standards. The module contains thermal runway with a packaging overhead of less than 20-percent of module mass.
The family of energy, power, and ultra power modules provide solutions for all-electric, hybrid-electric, and micro-hybrid applications. The batteries' modular, scalable designs provide a more effective and efficient way to deliver uncompromised electric power.
"The EPiC Family is a major step forward in advancing electric propulsion for airborne applications. Our modular platform allows aircraft designers the ability to create innovative new airframe concepts as well as revitalise legacy airframes. I want to thank the entire EP Systems team for their innovation, hard work, and tenacity in bringing this concept to market." Nathan Millecam – CEO
EP Systems is currently working with numerous launch customers to integrate the EPiC propulsion system into their aircrafts. The EPiC TSO is estimated to reach completion in Q2 of 2022. The EPiC battery system is the centerpiece of a broader ecosystem that comprehensively solves adoption barriers related to electric flight. More information on the EP Systems Electric Propulsion Ecosystem will be provided in the coming months.
