Under this effort, Kaney will develop a family of robust, reliable servo actuators with a common base and modular features to meet the unique needs that result from non-standardized flight profiles. Kaney will develop and integrate a unique magnetic gear technology developed by its STTR. This technology will be integrated into its Smart Servo product line, which is currently a flagship Kaney product with over 5,000 units in service on military and commercial aircraft. Kaney’s Smart Servo technology will be advanced to enable Skyborg and low-cost attributable air platforms (LCAAT/LCAAPS) in addition to ORB and AAM/UAM platforms supported by Agility Prime. 

Kaney’s experience in manufacturing critical military and aerospace motion control products, power generation/distribution, and control will be leveraged for this new product development. Kaney actuators are on test aircraft and iron birds for both new vehicle designs and type-certified aircraft being modified.
