Technology Transfer: Aircraft Propulsion System to Replace Existing APUs

This system technology aims to equip existing in-service 50 to 190 passenger aircraft with Aircraft Propulsion System , named, “PlanePower”, to replace the Auxiliary Power Units.

It is a secondary propulsion system (Patents pending) for The Boeing Company, Airbus Industries, Bombardier, and Embraer companies as OEM supplier. It is being developed in the US. The real customers are the Airlines around the World.

Its Objective is to reduce fuel burn on ground by 80% and protect the environment and reduce the noise while reducing recurring operational costs.

There are over 17,600 aircrafts in service which could benefit from the system and represent the retrofit market of over $14 b.The global market forecast anticipates a demand for over 16,600 new single-aisle aircrafts in the next 20 years creating OEM market of over $15 b.

The System does NOT require any electrical, hydraulic, or pneumatic power to taxi the aircraft. It does NOT use aircraft Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) power to taxi. The following companies are developing competing systems / technologies:

1. Delos Aerospace.
2. Chorus Motors, subsidiary of Borealis Exploration, Ltd. of UK – “WheelTug”.
3. The Boeing Company.

All patented systems under development (not yet certified) by the above companies use APU power and / or electrical energy stored to run the motors mounted on the landing gear, whereas “PlanePower” secondary propulsion system is a self-contained.

This technology is available for transfer to a company which is capable of manufacturing the System. Terms can be discussed. Pse contact svipja@airtelmail.in
