L&T Technology nabs $100Mn & electric air mobility program from Jaunt

Jaunt and LTTS will together offer engineering services globally to empower and strengthen the Jaunt Journey

L&T Technology Services Limited (LTTS), a leading provider of pure-play engineering services has been awarded with a multi-year electric air mobility program coupled with an investment of $100 million by Jaunt Air Mobility (Jaunt).

As a part of the grant, LTTS will establish an Engineering and R&D facility in Québec Province, allowing the next-gen aircraft maker to support Jaunt’s latest eVTOL - electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing – air taxi dubbed Journey.

Collectively, Jaunt’s focus on its Urban Air Mobility (UAM) business and LTSS’ globally supplied engineering services will cater to technology spaces like air data management, battery management, power distribution system, cockpit display system, and flight control system.

In addition to this, LTTS-Jaunt collaboration will also focus on electrification, testing, power electronics, stress analysis, structural design, certification, and manufacturing engineering.

Jaunt’s newly launched sustainable aircraft ‘Jaunt Journey’ – rolled out to address the burgeoning demand for faster urban and regional travel – takes off like a helicopter however flies like a fixed-wing plane dependent on a Slowed-Rotor Compound system, which is a patented technology.

The latest next-generation air taxis would offer a travel range of over 110 km via air within 25 minutes or less time duration with affordable trip costs encouraging public use.

With a passenger capacity of four, the single-pilot aircraft provides a range of services including military missions, urban air mobility, cargo delivery, and medical transport.

Speaking on the latest sustainable aircraft, Martin Peryea, CEO & CTO of Jaunt, mentioned that Jaunt Journey will help reduce carbon emissions worldwide. The company will also continue to pursue Tier 1 partnerships making LTTS the perfect fit as an engineer partner for Jaunt.

Last month, AIRO Group brought Jaunt under its umbrella bringing together decades of industry-leading technologies through its subsidiaries to design top tier products and services showcasing capabilities of catering to a wide variety of aerospace markets.

Essentially, the AIRO Group tethers to avionics technologies and others that help advance military aerospace training, data systems, military, resupply package delivery, and commercial manned or unmanned aircraft systems.
