Professional Bio
Josh is the Co-Founder and CTO of Electro.Aero and subsidiary Electro Nautic. He has over a decade of experience developing and commercialising electric propulsion systems. He is an entrepreneur and robotics engineer who has specialised in electric propulsion technologies.
Josh founded Electro.Aero to safely propel the sustainable aviation industry, through developing and commercialising electric propulsion systems for aircraft partners. Josh also founded the SAE AE-7D committee for aircraft charging standards and continues to contribute to the development of these standards as the committee Vice-Chair.
Electro Nautic was born from exploring the opportunity to employ Electro.Aero's technology and team in the watercraft propulsion sector, asking the questions: why push a draggy hull through the water when you can fly over it on hydrofoils? The WaveDrive active stability controlled hydrofoil electric propulsion systems achieves this and more, revolutionising the watercraft industry!
