Scalewings – Willkommen in der Welt von ScaleWings
Trying to build a hybrid engine block for airplanes, consisting of an electric motor/generator and two independent reciprocating engines (looks like V type). In theory, with a shared shaft, you can knock out one motor and two others should still cover you.

Interesting that they are also working on superconducting designs. Their basic motor looks a lot like Launchpoint's halbach array axial flux motor...

Airbus Group and Siemens Sign Long-Term Cooperation Agreement in the Field of Hybrid Electric Propulsion Systems - Siemens Global Website
Siemens has been doing aircraft propulsion electric motors recently, guess they felt it was better to cooperate with the Airbus E-Fan group rather than compete. Wonder how the turboelectric work will shake out though?

DARPA Announces VTOL X-Plane Phase 2 Design
LightningStrike, a spiritual follow-on to Excalibur, though the embedded fan wing needs to be compared to LEAPtech/SCEPTOR/S2 in terms of efficiency as the fanwing might be a little overbuilt.

Err, seems the idea is to slip an electric motor onto the output shaft of a light aircraft engine to provide electric boost, and a marginal emergency propulsion capability. Sorta parallel hybrid EV...

Apparently did some research work for NASA recently that found a N+2 design for a non-superconducting turboelectric propulsion that actually closed and was usable, roughly on par with an existing 737. Uses strut braced midspan turbogenerators feeding power to the inboard wing span, which is stuffed with wing internal embedded electric propulsors. Though the design used tech that while it exists today, exists outside of the aerospace realm so requires further development. They also have a superconducting N+3 design too.
