About Blueshift

Blueshift builds open-source, ethical electronics. We recently launched our first products: the worlds first supercapacitor-powered portable speaker systems. Our Helium speakers charge in 5 minutes and play for 6 hours. Rated lifetime is 500,000 charge cycles, we expect 20 years of consistent performance. Plus they actually sound good - theyre designed around physics, not fashion. Durability, sound quality and efficiency are our priorities - one side-effect is that our products are also very sustainable, built from natural, renewable materials with long lifespans. Our first crowdfunding campaign successfully raised $36,000 to fund pilot production of the Helium in December, 2013. Product is shipping now (April, 2014). Speakers are just the beginning. The open-source model allows for low-cost development of great products throughout portable, personal electronics. We want to build the best stuff we can, not just products that can sell 100k units at 4-5x markups.

Blueshift chosen as official thermal protection system supplier for Lilium’s production eVTOL aircraft

Feb 9, 2024

Share this news: Lilium, developer of the first all-electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) jet, has selected Blueshift to be the official supplier of thermal protection systems (TPS) for its initial series production aircraft. Massachusetts, United States - February 9, 2024 — As part of the agreement, Blueshift will supply its revolutionary AeroZero ® TPS, which will fit within Lilium’s battery design to help prevent burn through and mitigate the risk of thermal runaway propagation. Tim Burbey, President at Blueshift, said: “We’re thrilled to announce our newfound partnership with Lilium – a leader in the eVTOL aircraft industry. We are supplying our AeroZero ® TPS, which provides key protection to Lilium’s core battery components and will help ensure seamless operation of their aircraft. “We’re looking forward to working with the team at Lilium in protecting their battery packs and other critical areas within their aircraft. Our partnership will prove the incomparable benefits of our technology in promoting a more sustainable method of transportation.” Blueshift’s technology provides protection of carbon fibre composites and thin metallic housing and parts, such as aluminium, titanium and steel. All of Blueshift’s products are flame retardant, less than 1.5mm thick and have a very low thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity. Key applications include direct flame and thermal protection for batteries and their enclosures, composite housings, structural barriers, as well as helping mitigate fire propagation from thermal runaway in power-dense batteries. Many of Blueshift’s products are currently being evaluated and integrated into different areas within battery packs, battery housing, external skin/wing protection, and other areas of eVTOLs and electric-powered aircrafts. The Lilium Pioneer Edition Jet is the first planned model of the Lilium Jet and will comfortably seat four passengers on estimated non-stop flights of up to 175 km at 250 km/h at launch. The first manned flight of the Lilium Jet is scheduled for late 2024, with entry into service expected in 2026. Martin Schuebel, Lilium’s Senior Vice President Procurement, added: “Blueshift’s thermal protection system is light, thin and easy to incorporate into our strict design requirements, while producing exceptional thermal results.” Contact Info:
