Crane Aerospace & Electronics, a segment of Crane Co, will collaborate with BAE Systems to provide specific expertise on the power management systems for Jaunt Air Mobility's all-electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.

Working with BAE Systems and Jaunt, the plan is to conduct a series of studies to explore exact power needs to determine an optimum power electronics solution for Jaunt Air Mobility's developing Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) platform. In doing so, Crane A&E will share its years of expertise in integrating high-voltage power conversion, distribution and control.

“BAE Systems is excited to work with Crane A&E to develop power management systems for Jaunt’s AAM platform,” said Ehtisham Siddiqui, vice president and general manager of controls and avionics solutions at BAE Systems. “This strategic collaboration will leverage the expertise and knowledge of both industry-leading companies to advance energy management solutions for this emerging market.”

"Crane A&E is investing in power management technologies that support the transformation to carbon-neutral air travel," said Hilary King, vice president & general manager of sensing & power solutions at Crane Aerospace & Electronics. "We are extremely pleased to collaborate with BAE Systems and Jaunt Air Mobility in advancing the next generation of air mobility.”

"Working with BAE Systems, we understand the value that Crane A&E offers. Power management is one of the vital transformative challenges for enabling AAM. These two organizations bring a level of aviation expertise unparalleled in the industry,” said Martin Peryea, CEO of Jaunt.

Crane A&E has more than 60 years of experience delivering premier power conversion, distribution, motor controls, energy management, and advanced packaging solutions to a robust base of aerospace and defence customers. Crane A&E's enabling technology accelerates the electrification of air, land, and sea vehicle systems and, through technology advancements, provides higher power in smaller and more efficient products.
