Talyn is developing long-range electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft for passengers and cargo. While there are many other companies in this space that may be familiar (Joby, Lilium, Kittyhawk), they have a maximum achievable battery electric range of sub 100 miles. Talyn can achieve at least 3X the range at over 300 miles, using the same battery tech, and can fly at meaningfully fast cruise speeds. We achieve this by making a very efficient electric fixed wing aircraft that can be released and caught mid-air with our custom winged drone, enabling the system to take-off and land vertically. An animation of the system can be seen at www.talyn.co.
Skills: C++, MATLAB, Python, OpenCV, Computer Vision
We are looking for our first hire, an engineer with expert experience in designing and implementing vehicle autonomy software, as well as experience with the design and implementation of the embedded systems used for computation, state estimation, and inter- and intra- vehicle communication. The candidate will have complete ownership over the requirements definition, sourcing, and implementation of these systems on our subscale prototypes and robotic simulator, and they will be responsible for the systems and software required for robust autonomy required to perform the rendezvous and docking maneuvers.
