Honeywell | DENSO Electric Aircraft Motors

Honeywell | DENSO Electric Aircraft Motors

Honeywell and DENSO collaborate to create the future of electric aircraft motors

Honeywell and DENSO, a leading supplier of reliable motors for electric cars, have established an alliance to propel the future of urban air mobility and other aerospace market segments by combining their expertise to develop electric aircraft motors. By leveraging their deep experience in both the aerospace and automotive sectors, Honeywell and DENSO will develop and manufacture electric propulsion systems for aircraft, focusing on the urban air mobility (UAM) segment with air taxis and other heavy-lift air delivery vehicles.

Honeywell | DENSO electric propulsion units combine motor controllers, gear assemblies and high-power-density electric motors in a single, integrated package.

The units work seamlessly with any power train: all-electric, hybrid-electric, fuel cell, solar or any other architecture. They integrate perfectly with Honeywell's Compact Fly-by-Wire System, actuators and turbogenerators.

What is It?

Combined motor and controller for hybrid-electric and fully electric aircraft, including traditional airframes, unmanned aircraft and urban airmobility vehicles.

Benefits and Value

  • High power density
  • Lightweight
  • Designed ground-up for aviation
  • Integration with any powertrain architecture
  • Seamless connection with fly-by-wire system, sensors and actuators
  • Backed by Honeywell, a leader in flight controls with 100 years of certification experience, and DENSO, a leader in electric car technology

The new electric motors can satisfy missions from heavy-lift cargo drones, air taxis, or commuter aircraft.

Experienced Collaboration

Honeywell also offers aerospace integration and certification expertise for enabling the commercialization of these vehicles. Honeywell has more than a century of experience helping designers bring new aircraft to market. And our relationship continues long after that, with a global support network that keeps aircraft flying profitability for decades.
