Radical Air Vehicle design for VRCO – PROJECT NEOXCRAFT on ERDF TEM project @Derby Uni @D2N2LEP


Great to host Daniel Hayes from VRCO today at the Innovation Institute. Daniel was here for a briefing on the feasibility study I’ve been carrying out on their innovative aircraft design.

The original feasibility was carried out under the ERDF Transport Equipment Manufacturing project, and the NeoXCraft will be moving on to the D2EE Low Carbon project.

Prof Angelo Maligno will now be carrying an in depth consultancy for them to develop the modelling and simulation necessary to produce the first scale prototype. Angelo will be concentrating on the composite airframe while I concentrate on the electric propulsion and power conversion/storage system.

More reports as the design unfolds…..
