We at Volocopter are pioneers in the development of electrical air taxis that
take off and land vertically (eVTOLs). We are bringing urban air mobility to
life by introducing our air taxis and drones as an electric addition to
current transportation options in megacities worldwide. Our aim is to offer
affordable on-demand air taxi services and save people time by flying them
safely to their destination. In 2011, we performed the first-ever crewed
flight of a purely electrical multicopter and have since showcased numerous
public flights with our full-scale Volocopters (www. volocopter.com).
Our custom-built Electric Propulsion System consisting of state-of-the-art
battery, power distribution and controlled electric motors are key to making
Volocopter's products extremely safe to fly. With your specific experience in
the development of electrical system for aviation or in integrating electric
propulsion components into mobility products, you contribute directly to the
certification of this uniquely safe and simple flight experience. As an
integral part of our Energy Storage Unit (ESU) component development team,
you ensure that the proper system development processes are followed by the
battery and power distribution teams.
Your mission during this flight:
Battery Verification: Lead and conduct comprehensive verification
activities to evaluate the safety, reliability, and performance of battery
systems intended for SC-VTOL and E-19 certification.
Regulatory Compliance: Ensure adherence to the specific requirements
outlined by EASA's SC-VTOL and E-19 regulations throughout the battery
design, development, and testing processes.
Testing and Analysis: Develop test verification plans, oversee battery
testing, analyze test data, and generate detailed reports on the battery
performance, including areas such as energy storage, charging/discharging
behavior, thermal management, Electromagnetic Interference, Salt Spray,
Fungus, Magnetic effects, and overall safety of the system in its
Documentation and Reporting: Create and maintain accurate and thorough
documentation of all verification activities, test results, and analysis
reports, ensuring compliance with relevant standards and guidelines.
Collaboration and Communication: Collaborate with cross-functional teams,
including battery design engineers, system integration engineers, and
regulatory experts, to ensure seamless integration and verification of
batteries in VTOL aircraft.
Communicate effectively with internal stakeholders and external
certification authorities to provide updates on verification progress and
address any concerns or queries.
Continuous Improvement: Stay updated with the latest developments in
battery technology, regulatory requirements, and industry best practices.
Identify areas for improvement in verification processes and propose
innovative solutions to enhance efficiency and effectiveness.
