Transportation, Aerospace & UAV
Transportation, aerospace, and UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) industries are all constantly evolving, driven by technological advancements, changing consumer demands, and new regulations.
With the growing focus on sustainability and reducing emissions, electric and hybrid propulsion systems are becoming more prevalent in transportation and aerospace. The use of digital technologies and connectivity is transforming the transportation and aerospace industries, with the goal of making travel more efficient and seamless. Innovations in materials science and manufacturing techniques are also driving change in these industries.
Within the aerospace industry, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones, have seen unprecedented growth over the past decade, particularly in defence and surveillance applications.
Just over the horizon are electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Aircraft manufacturers, airlines, carmakers and start-ups are impatient to market the first air taxis. What’s more, a 2021 National Academy of Sciences study found that eVTOL aircraft are even more energy efficient than terrestrial electric vehicles.
Efficient and effective connectivity is crucial in such demanding sectors.
Transport begins with connections
The rapid evolution of technology provides innovative solutions to meet the needs of increasingly sophisticated applications. Connectivity has to overcome the specific challenges associated with aerospace, freight and transport. One of the advantages of incorporating specific features like sturdy keyways and locks is that it enhances the reliability of solutions. There are similarly high expectations in terms of miniaturization and lightweight.
Electronic connectors for the heavily regulated aerospace field must meet the exacting technical specifications for extreme and harsh environments. Ensuring the necessary durability calls for rigorous testing to withstand the large variations in temperature and pressure, shocks and vibrations.
For example, one consideration when working at high altitudes is the rapid depletion of batteries. High-power batteries designed for extreme and harsh environments must be equiped with connectors with the ability to handle rapid charging.
