Embraer Working On Electric Cropduster, Hybrid Military Transport
Russ Niles
November 22, 20201

Embraer has partnered with the Brazilian arm of Portuguese energy
company EDP to build a pure electric version of the EMB-2013 Ipanema
aerial application aircraft. The first test flight is scheduled for
early 2021. “Through EDP’s Smart division, the multinational of
Portuguese origin announced a financial contribution for the
acquisition of an energy storage and recharging technology solution
for the aircraft, with 100 percent electric propulsion …,” the company
statement said. EDP says it’s “leading a transition to a low-carbon
economy,” and that the alliance with Embraer “represents a new form of
our investment in electric mobility, helping to position Brazil as a
leading player in this market.” Meanwhile, Embraer is also taking part
in development of a hybrid-electric military transport for the
Brazilian air force.

The STOUT (Short Take-Off Utility Transport) is intended to replace
the air force’s EMB-110 Bandierante (C-95A) and EMB-120 Brasilia
(C-97) and is designed for use in the Amazon. It will have two
turboprop engines and two electric motors on its high wing and will
have a range of 1300 nautical miles. It will need about 4,000 feet of
runway and will hold up to 30 troops or 6,000 pounds of cargo
