01 Our Story

Torqily’s industry disrupting technology was born out of a Small Business Innovation Research development contract with the US government, exemplifying the program’s mission to stimulate high-tech innovation. The team was working on a tough design problem that needed a very lightweight propulsion motor that had strict size limits, couldn’t use a gearbox and couldn’t be liquid cooled. Using a unique electromagnetic approach the team delivered the needs of a fast, efficient, high-torque, low-mass electric motor. Torqily motor technology has been supported by more than $2.5M in funding from US government R&D contracts, commercial contracts, and IR&D. All in support of our goal to reset the bar on electric motor performance with this breakthrough technology.
