We have developed strong relationships with the world’s major commercial helicopter manufacturers and suppliers, working with our customers to create innovation designs and engineering solutions.

Structure Optimization:
Industry leaders, with over a decade of expertise in applying structural optimization to both metallic (e.g. hoist jib, gear box housings, sponson spars etc.) and composite (e.g. tail boom) structures

Composite Design:
Designed many optimum weight structures requiring a deep understanding of manufacturing constraints and attachment strategies

Thermo Mechanical Assessments:
The thermal effects of critical components and the resulting thermo mechanical stress requires assessment. Typical studies include the effect of electric de-icing systems in the rotor blades

Aerodynamic Assessments using CFD:
Determining the transient pressure fields on isolated airfoils and updating the new geometry position with time

Vulnerability and Ditching:
Expertise in the assessment of structures to fault loadings events such as bird-strike onto windshield and rotor blades, helicopter ditching etc

Optimization Center:
We have set-up ‘Skill Centers of Excellence’ to focus on weight reduction whilst maintaining performance. Development of screening process and ensure the efficient selection of structures
