LaunchPoint’s SmartPoint™ Controllers are advanced electric motor drives, generator controllers, and hybrid-electric power system management units that are designed for all electric and hybrid electric propulsion applications.

SmartPoint™ Controllers:

Designed to allow connectivity with peripheral sensors
Constantly monitor and report system status
Make real-time flight intelligent decisions based on flight data
Meet “flight weight” performance metrics
 Maintain DC bus stability and meet electromagnetic emissions standards

LaunchPoint produces 1.5 kW to 40 kW motor controllers specifically targeted at the hybrid electric drone market. 125kW – 250kW SmartPoint™ Controls are custom applications for the larger cargo and passenger applications. Please contact us to discuss mission specific configurations, design capabilities, and licensing.

The DC bus in a hybrid electric vehicle is a small vehicle micro-grid with multiple energy sources and sinks. There are numerous topologies and technological solutions to integrating the power sources and electrical loads while providing the ability to regulate the micro-grid. Each solution has different associated performance characteristics, costs, weights, and efficiencies. The correct design depends heavily on the mission and vehicle characteristics. We know this and have tools to create and validate options for your vehicle.

LaunchPoint has developed the expertise to select the correct architecture to meet mission requirements with minimum mass and maximum performance and reliability. Hybrid Bus control technology is specifically designed with control of the DC bus transients in mind:

Smart-grid/hybrid-power-system controllers to manage all the resources on the bus
Maintain micro-grid stability and regulation of control system and DC bus architectures to eliminate or mitigate voltage regulation instability and resonances
Motor drive electronics packages customized to a mission
Expert selection of DC bus architecture and design of the hybrid bus controller to reduce various transient responses in real-time
