Experimental Wing Tests Electric Propulsion Technologies


Leading Edge Asynchronous Propeller Technology (LEAPTech) project researchers at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center are performing ground testing of a 31-foot-span, carbon composite wing section with 18 electric motors. The LEAPTech project will test the premise that tighter propulsion-airframe integration, made possible with electric power, will deliver improved efficiency and safety, as well as environmental and economic benefits.
