The Center for Automotive Research was awarded a NASA research grant for a 10 MW Ring Motor concept. The grant sought innovative designs of electric machines that could meet the performance requirements necessary for use in hybrid electric propulsion systems for large transport aircraft such as a Boeing 737. NASA was looking for machines that were five times lighter and more efficient than any motor in production.
