NEWLY DEVELOPED TECHNOLOGY FOR MAXIMUM SAFTY
The 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 rotor system uses the energy from the air stream to drive the rotor. The rotor is not driven by the engine, rather independent, and therefore extremely safe.
TENSOR WAS DESIGNED BY USING STATE-OF-THE-ART AEROSPACE TECHNOLOGY
TENSOR AG invested seven years and 20,000 man-hours into research of autorotational systems. We developed mathematical systems to describe the aerodynamics and engineer a highly efficient airfoil design. CFD-Analysis was further employed to reduce fuselage drag and evaluate developed rotor airfoils against standard geometries.
AUTOROTATION – UNRAVELING THE MYSTERIES OF NATURE
For eons, Nature has employed the principle of autorotation. Unraveling Nature’s secrets to improve existing Gyrocopter technology was a challenging task – but a challenge we gladly accepted.
APPLIED BIONICS — "THE TENSOR INNOVATION"
Extremely safe due to autorotation, independent of the engine.
Significantly quieter than helicopters or multicopters.
30% more efficient compared to existing autorotation rotors.
Our rotor system uses the energy from 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 autorotational principles and develop mathematical systems to design our efficient rotor blade (patent registered).
MULTIPLE PROPULSION OPTIONS
With a single propeller connected to a centrally located engine, Tensor can adopt multiple propulsion systems. When these technologies mature, electric or H2 systems will become viable options to conventional motors.
Lower Drag (1/3 less than multicopters and 1/2 that of helicopters) make Tensor the most efficient, extremely short take-off and landing system available for electric aerial transport.
