With, electrical systems increasingly being chosen for their high performance and low environmental impact by aviation, space and the automotive industries, the more electrical aircraft is looking to devise lighter, cheaper and more reliable equipment.
Market, Needs & Challenges
The more electrical aircraft domain will therefore work to reduce the weight, size and costs of the electrical systems equipment along with considering how to better control and mitigate the risks so as to guarantee their robustness and reliability.
