Higher payload, more effective propulsion and lighter aircraft requirements compel commercial and defense systems to find ways to manage power output and consumption. GE Aviation, NASA Glenn and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base – Air Force Research Laboratories are three of the industries globally dependent and respected resources – all calling Ohio home. With both commercial and military focus, this Ohio region “propulsion corridor” is driving synergistic technology advancement. Fuel technology, propulsion technology, etc.
GE Aviation continues to expand in Ohio recently announcing plans for a $51M R&D Center (EPISCENTER) in Ohio’s Aerospace Hub. University researchers and students will work along-side GE engineers. The center will be directed at several markets including end-to-end electrical power starter/generation, conversion, distribution and load technologies for civil and military aerospace applications
