The Modeling Advanced Aircraft Propulsion (MAAP™) tool is a software suite that optimizes propulsion and power generation systems for flight applications. It is used by aerospace engineers and designers to virtually model “what if” configuration scenarios for new electric and hybrid-electric aircraft systems for the aerospace, defense, thermal management, power generation, and Advanced Air Mobility markets.

Companies can discover how a vehicle’s powertrain or electrical power system is architected and performs based on different propulsion and power generation system models. Using the MAAP™ tool, potential costly mistakes can be avoided early in the design process.

Optimizes an electric machine and controller combination at multiple (unlimited) operating points subject to dozens of constraints at each point
Operational and design constraints have been identified and modeled based on LaunchPoint’s decades of experience
Analyzes the off-design performance of electric machine and controller combinations
Readily performs system-level trade studies including requirements trades, operating point trades, and technology trades – MAAP™ will even perform simultaneous combined trade studies
Unlocks additional weight and performance for your design
Physics-based electric machine and control electronics models, not curve fits to existing hardware. MAAP™ can model “out of the box” designs that may be far from any existing designs
Extensive set of technology parameters can be adjusted to examine the impact of new technology on propulsion and power generation system performance
