Aviation - Products
At Turbonetics we offer a large selection of standard product configurations, and our application engineers can combine standard components to create a solution specific to fit your needs. In addition, our design engineers can work with you on specially configured custom products when an item designed explicitly for your application is required. Unmanned drones (UAVs) play a vital role in today’s armed forces. By providing real-time intelligence to troops on the ground, they help keep our personnel out of harm’s way. If these UAVs are not in the air and performing at peak efficiency, our military isn’t operating with all the critical intel needed to operate effectively and stay safe.
When the military had problems with altitude capability and reliability with their UAVs, they turned to Turbonetics for a solution. After our engineering team worked closely with the crews responsible for operation, to understand the problem, we were able to provide a solution. By using our patented high-pressure ratio aero designs, we were able to increase the altitude capability of the UAV to more than 30,000 feet. In addition, our patented ceramic ball bearing design provided reliable and durable performance, increasing the time between overhauls. The result was an aircraft that performed at peak efficiency, with longer service intervals.
