RMCI Inc. becomes supplier of the sensor module for the WheelTug E-Taxi system


23 December 2014

RMCI Inc. has signed a partnership agreement with WheelTug plc to develop and be the exclusive worldwide supplier of the sensor module for the WheelTug E-Taxi system. The WheelTug system uses high-performance electric motors, installed in the nose gear wheels of an aircraft, to provide full mobility while on the ground, without the use of the aircraft's jet engines or tugs for both pushback and taxi operations. “RMCI is pleased to partner with WheelTug on this effort. The WheelTug system promises to revolutionize ground operations for airliners, providing dramatic savings in both time and engine wear,” said Ken Speaks, RMC’'s CEO. “We look forward to leveraging our expertise in aviation sensors, diagnostics, and avionics to design and produce a sensor module for this essential component of the WheelTug system. We have been working with WheelTug for several months, and our two organizations make a great team. I anticipate great success and significant mutual benefit as we move forward on this project.”
