TE Connectivity eVTOL (Electric-vertical-takeoff-and-landing aircraft)
Empowering Engineers to Solve Problems Moving the World Forward
Revolutionizing Private Transportation
Yesterday’s dreams of electric-powered air taxis and flying cars/personal air vehicles (PAVs) are turning into real Urban Air Mobility (UAM) projects. Hundreds of commercial-drone and electric-vertical-takeoff-and-landing aircraft (eVTOL) programs are driving advances in electric-propulsion motors, power distribution, positioning systems, telenetworking, and cockpit/mission systems. These opportunities are inspiring designers to explore components that can optimize size, weight, and power (SWaP) for line replaceable units (LRUs) in UAM innovations. That’s why TE Connectivity (TE) offers solutions to handle high voltages and high kW peak output. We also provide interconnect technologies to handle the low-voltage and high-bandwidth needs of mission systems and inflight-entertainment (IFE), connectivity, and control applications.

Small Form Factor Connectors
TE’s 369 series connectors are particularly suited for civil aerospace cabin systems applications. It is designed for applications where fewer contacts are needed in each connector and shielding is unnecessary. 369 connectors are suitable for blind mating or low visibility conditions with the scoop-proof interface helping prevent damage to contacts.
A sensor is a device used to measure a property, such as pressure, position, temperature, or acceleration, and respond with feedback. TE Connectivity (TE), one of the largest sensor companies in the world, is providing sensors and connectivity essential in today’s increasingly connected world. TE’s sensors are vital to the next generation of data-driven technology and offers different types of sensors for the aerospace industry.

High Performance Wire and Cables
TE's high-performance wire and cable systems provide lightweight insulation systems. We are leader in polymer modification technologies, precision extrusion, and radiation cross-linking.
TE's Raychem line of heat-shrinkable harness sealing components were developed for a wide range of aerospace applications. Whether your challenge is size, weight, extreme temperatures or harsh environments.
Lightweight Terminals and Splices
COPALUM Sealed Terminals and Splices are designed especially for solving the inherent problems of terminating aluminum conductors. These connectors are terminated to stranded aluminum wire using a “dry crimp.” AMP COPALUM Sealed Terminals and Splices are available for terminating and splicing stranded aluminum wire in sizes ranging from 8 to 4/0 [8.6 to 110.9 mm2] and copper 10 to 3/0 [4.8 to 85.9 mm2].
Power Feeder Cables
TE’s range of flexible power cables are designed to be bent and routed in extremely tight areas with no wrinkling or cracking of the insulation, and which help meet the harshest application requirements.
