NEWLY DEVELOPED TECHNOLOGY FOR MAXIMUM SAFTY
Propeller is only responsible for forward thrust. CFD analysis and fuselage optimization have been performed, allowing a mostly laminar flow into the propeller. As a result the system is more efficient and noticeably quieter.
At higher speeds the wing provides up to 30% lift and therefore reduces drag on the rotor which enables the aircraft to reach speeds of more than 200km/h.
Our rotorsystem uses the energy contained in the air stream to drive the rotor. It is the same principle as the maple seed. This makes rotor lift independent of the engine and therefore extremely secure.
TENSOR WAS DESIGNED BY USING STATE OF THE ART AEROSPACE TECHNOLOGY
Fraundorfer Aeronautics invested seven years and 20k man-hours into research of autorotational systems. Mathematical systems have been developed to describe the aerodynamics and make highly efficient airfoil design possible. CFD-Analysis was used to reduce fuselage drag and compare developed rotor airfoils against standard geometries.
THE AUTOROTATION – A PRINCIPLE DESIGNED BY NATURE
Nature uses the principal of autorotation already for a long time. Maple seeds are a prime example of this. Getting behind the secrets and improving existing technologi- cal achievements is a challenging task – we gratefully accepted.
APPLIED BIONICS — THE INNOVATION
Extremely safe due to auto- rotation and the independence of the engine.
Significantly more silent than helicopters or multicopters.
30% more efficient compared to existing autorotation rotors.
Our rotorsystem uses the energy contained in the air stream to drive the rotor, as the maple seed does. This makes our system independent of the engine and therefore extremely safe. It took seven years of research to fully understand the autorational principles and develop mathematical systems to design our efficient rotor blade (patent registred).
INDEPENDENCY OF DRIVING TECHNOLOGIES
Due to a single propeller connected to a central located engine, Tensor is able to be fitted with different types of driving engines. When the technology progress allows, electric or H2 driven motors are a viable alternative to conventional chemical systems.
1/3 drag compared to multicopter and 1/2 drag compared to helicopters make Tensor then the most efficient extrem short take-off and landing system available to implement all electric aerial transport.
