Embraer and BAE Systems Move Ahead on Use of eVTOLS for Military Applications

Our Bureau - : Jul 20, 2022 - : 6:56 am

Embraer and BAE Systems have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (“MoU”) at the ongoing airshow to potentially form a joint venture to collaboratively develop an innovative defence eVTOL variant using Eve’s platform.

The two firms had disclosed their plans to collaborate on developing Eve’s eVTOL as a potential defence variant in December 2021.

Andre Stein, Co-CEO of Eve, added: “We are thrilled that Embraer and BAE Systems have chosen Eve as their platform for this collaboration. Our eVTOL can be adapted to meet various essential applications in this market, such as humanitarian response and disaster relief. This collaboration also indicates that the defence market can be more sustainable and at the same time allows Eve to remain focused on exploring the Urban Air Mobility market.”

 “Teams from BAE Systems and Embraer will continue working together to explore how the aircraft, designed for the urban mobility market, can provide cost-effective, sustainable, and adaptable capability as a defence variant,” said Jackson Schneider, President and CEO of Embraer Defence & Security.

“Our customers’ operating environment is increasingly complex and eVTOL is just one example of how we’re looking at emerging technologies, including those from the commercial market. commented

Ian Muldowney, Chief Operating Officer of BAE Systems Air, ‘We are exploring how we can adapt these solutions to bring vital operational capability to our customers quickly and at a lower cost – whilst also supporting environmental and sustainability goals.”

Eve has also received a non-binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) with Embraer and BAE Systems to explore the potential order of up to 150 eVTOL vehicles. The latest potential order will be added to Eve’s current backlog of 1,910 eVTOLS, the largest within the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) industry.
