Jetoptera has been awarded a brand new Section II SBIR sub-contract by Freedom Flight Works, Inc. to collaborate within the improvement of a particular mission variant of their Fluidic Propulsion System (FPS™) for decreased signature autonomous automobiles. This undertaking is a follow-on to Division of Protection, Military Section I SBIR and Section I Possibility sub-contracts awarded beforehand to advance analysis, present tools, and adapt Jetoptera’s patented Fluidic Propulsive System (FPS™) to demanding army purposes.

“We imagine that the FPS™ know-how developed by the workforce at Jetoptera opens up new and profound potentialities for signature discount, reliability, security, and effectivity in aviation propulsion. We’re keen about working with Dr. Evulet and his workforce to use and reveal these benefits our distinctive utility.” commented Austin Blue, CEO of Freedom Flight Works, Inc.


This new 24-month program will flight reveal a Powered Parafoil Fluidic Propulsive System (PP-FPS) to boost and drastically broaden the capabilities of the Joint Precision Airdrop Supply System (JPADS) program. The PP-FPS shall be powered by an modern thermally recuperated turbocompressor. “Comparable propulsive techniques are a part of Jetoptera’s know-how roadmap and deliberate for deployment on future platforms for each unmanned and manned purposes,” mentioned Dr. Andrei Evulet, CEO of Jetoptera. “Thermally recuperated gasoline generators can scale back the Particular Gasoline Consumption by as much as 30% in comparison with equal unrecuperated techniques, suggesting unprecedentedly low gas consumption.”

Below the earlier stage (Section I) of this program, superior acoustic measurement strategies demonstrated that Jetoptera’s FPS™ emits as much as 15 dBA decrease General Sound Stress Stage (OASPL) output in comparison with a propeller, primarily based on equal energy and earlier than utility of any extra noise mitigation applied sciences. Acoustic therapy elevated the FPS™ benefit to greater than 25 dBA OASPL over the bladed system. Jetoptera thanks Freedom Flight Works, Inc., who made this program attainable. We look ahead to collaborating on our distinctive mixture of applied sciences.
