Electric Aircraft (MEA)

Raytheon UK attended the More Electric Aircraft Conference in Hamburg Germany (25 - 27 November) to further raise awareness of the company's growing capabilities in this burgeoning market.

The aircraft industry's drive to reduce weight in order to improve fuel consumption has been the catalyst for the rising demand for electrical power systems solutions, favoured over hydraulic and pneumatic mechanical systems and sub-systems. Raytheon's technological innovation in the area of advanced power electronics will be a key enabler in this market, including the More Electric Aircraft initiative which aims to distribute increasing electrical power across the airframe.

Click here to find out why Raytheon UK's leading innovation in Silicon Carbide uniquely positions Raytheon to offer the lowest risk and most economical solution in this market – half the size, half the weight, double the power.
