/24-7PressRelease/ - ASHBURN, VA - August 31, 2007 - Delos Aerospace has been Awarded Two Patents for an In-Wheel Electric Motor/Generator System and Method U.S. Patent No. 7,226,018 and U.S. Patent No. 7,237,748 That Will Provide for Safer Landing and Ground Maneuvers of Aircraft and Eliminates the use of Jet Engines for Taxiing or Other Ground Maneuvers and Significantly Reduces Fuel Burn on Assisted Takeoff.
Our technology provides for the optimal efficiency in aircraft ground maneuvering by incorporating the use of in-wheel electric motor/generators that are capable of producing sufficient power density to effectively maneuver aircraft of any weight on the ground, and provide for safer and more effective braking of the landing gear wheels replacing the old friction disk technology.
Currently jet and turbofan aircraft require tow motors or tugs to push the aircraft backward into the designated taxiway. By eliminating the need to wait for, attach, and detach tow motors or tugs aircraft can enter and exit gates faster thus reducing between-flight turnaround times, which directly impacts Airline and Airport capacity utilization rate.
Delos Aerospace's patented green technology is expected provide fuel savings of 2.4 to 3.4 million USD a year per aircraft and the down line savings in soft dollars is expected to be 3 to 4 times that.
The environmental benefits of our technology for airport neighborhoods will be substantial due to the significant reduction in greenhouse gases.
