We specialize in the design and supply of one-of-a-kind facilities and custom engineered solutions that are used for engine research and development. To meet engine research and development and certification requirements, we designed our facilities and test equipment to satisfy the most rigid standards of certification testing. Our Project Spotlights demonstrate our knowledge and expertise in this highly specialized field.
Multi-Axis Thrust Measurement (Rolls-Royce)
Design and supply of a JSF LiftFan electrical prime mover and multi-axis Thrust Measurement System for use in testing LiftFan component of the Short Take-Off and Vertical Landing (STOVL) version of the JSF Aircraft. This facility has been recognized as the first functional JSF LiftFan test facility.
Heated Intake System (Rolls Royce)
The turnkey supply of an inlet air heating system for a Marine Gas Turbine Engine Test Facility. The system recycles heat dissipated by the facility loadbank system and extracts hot air from the loadbanks without creating any additional backpressure that could reduce performance.
Combustion Sector Rig (Rolls-Royce)
MDS designed and supplied the piping and support structures for a Combustion Sector Rig system, including the registration of the existing UK Sector Rig Vessel with the Technical Standards and Safety Authority in the province of Ontario, Canada.
1P Moment Test Rig (Pratt & Whitney)
As a result of increased capacity at the Pratt & Whitney facility, and in light of the effectiveness of the first MDS delivered test rig, Pratt & Whitney has commissioned MDS to supply a second test rig.
