"Our collaboration with OXIS is separate from the current eFlyer 2 agreements and intentions we have with confirmed and our future supply chain partners," said Bye. "Bye Aerospace is working with Oxis on the Li-S battery cell characteristics to significantly improve our eFlyer 4 and future air taxi aircraft designs' performance. The average age of the global market for Turboprop fleet is 28 years. OXIS has the potential to provide a Li-S battery cell that is truly a game-changer."
OXIS Energy is involved in the design, development and now the move towards commercial production of lithium sulfur cells for battery systems. The company manufactures and produces all aspects and components in the making of the Li-S cell. With over 44 patent families, OXIS has been granted 183 patents with 101 pending.
