SmartPoint™ Control Software

Battery Management
LaunchPoint has developed LaunchPower™ series of software and hardware solutions that are designed to be a sophisticated battery management system for high-reliability battery packs used in electric and hybrid electric flight. Our technology is the brains behind the interface between the battery storage and the propulsion system.

Drives and Control
The DC bus in a hybrid electric vehicle is actually a small vehicle micro-grid with multiple energy sources and sinks. There are numerous possible 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.

LaunchPoint has developed the expertise to select the correct architecture to meet mission requirements with minimum mass and maximum performance and reliability.
