Power distribution unit for novel military air vehicle

Our client required a custom unit to process sensor inputs and distribute power to critical systems on a novel military air vehicle.

The power distribution system was critical to the safe operation of the vehicle, and had to be capable of rapidly managing load control in the event of generator failure.

42 Technology carried out the entire system engineering from conceptual system design through to hardware development based on an FPGA architecture. The delivered hardware enabled implementation of the developed control algorithms and software, validating their intended performance.

Against aggressive timescales, we delivered a fully functional prototype system to allow the client to complete a successful test flight.
