LaunchPoint’s SmartPoint™ Controllers are advanced electric motor controllers, generator inverter-controllers, and hybrid electric power system management units that are designed for all electric and hybrid electric propulsion applications as well as power generation for aerial and ground based platforms.

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
Meet stringent power quality requirements

LaunchPoint produces 1.5 kW to 40 kW motor controllers specifically targeted at the hybrid electric drone market. 125 kW to 250 kW SmartPoint™ Controllers are custom tailored configurations for the larger cargo and passenger applications. LaunchPoint also develops these controllers for power generation in aerial and ground based platforms.

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. Our experienced engineers have developed 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 weight, 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
