DENVER - Boom Supersonic in Denver needed a company to its complete electrical wiring interconnection system (EWIS) architecture, a key system for both its Overture supersonic commercial jet and Symphony, the engine that will power it. They found their solution from Latecoere in Toulouse, France. As part of the agreement, Latecoere's engineering team in Toulouse will work with Boom engineers to define the complete electrical wiring interconnection system (EWIS) architecture, a key system for both Overture and Symphony.
The EWIS will comprise over 64 miles of wiring, requiring more than 45,000 electrical connections to ensure safety and system reliability for Overture and Symphony. Latecoere has expertise in complex aircraft development processes and methods, and Boom will leverage the company's harness architecture definition software stack.
"Among the major aerostructures and systems suppliers announced for Overture, Latecoere brings tremendous experience in developing and manufacturing certifiable EWIS and advanced aircraft technologies," said Kathy Savitt, president and Chief Business Officer of Boom Supersonic. "At Boom, we continue to bring together the world's leading suppliers on Overture and Symphony to make sustainable supersonic air travel a reality."
"Latecoere is proud to support Boom with unique EWIS design engineering capabilities, in the development of the world's fastest airliner," Greg Huttner, CEO of Latecoere said. "We are one of the founders of the aerospace industry and are determined to continue supporting the development of next-generation flight with Boom."
Boom continues to progress toward production, lining up many of its critical aerostructures and systems suppliers for both Overture and Symphony. At the Paris Air Show in June 2023, Boom also shared a comprehensive look at the systems configuration for Overture including avionics, flight controls, hydraulics, fuel systems, and landing gear.
Symphony, the Boom-developed engine that will power Overture, continues to advance through design. Boom conducted the Conceptual Design Review (CoDR) engineering milestone for Symphony, which paves the way toward Symphony's first hardware rig tests planned for 2024.
