EDC Aviation Systems
Aviation Systems takes it to the next level!
Since 2005 Aviation Systems Mechanical section have been an important part of Engineering Design Center in Warsaw. Our team brings together staff specialized in designing state of art aircraft structures and engine externals. From the very beginning we’ve been designing various composite and metal structures that are a part of many modern aircrafts across the world. Our customers receive support with new products at every step of design process. Starting from prototype concepts, through drawing and design models, detailed and multi-level analysis, propositions on how to implement solutions which help reduce mass and costs, as well as direct help and service support around the world. The core of the staff is a group of specialized and experienced engineers.
The first team, that helped create Aviation Systems Mechanical – Nacelles – is working with projects related to the construction of the engine nacelles which are parts of the aircrafts like: Airbus A320, Comac C919, Boeing 747-8 and Bombardier 7000/8000. In 2015 team began work on a project involving the preparation to the bird strike certification test. On the 24th of May 2017 Nacelle team, in cooperation with colleagues from Middle River Aircraft System (USA, Baltimore) and Institute of Aviation, successfully completed bird strike certification test. This achievement was a milestone confirming the skills and capabilities of our team and our test stand.
The second of Aviation Systems Mechanical section – Aerostructures – brings together engineers, who were working on our largest project – design of fixed trailing edge composite and metal elements of two innovate airplanes, Airbus A350-900 and 1000. Employees from Aviation System Mechanical section were actively involved in the engineering works at the composite panels production stage as they supported customer directly in a factory in Great Britain. Our engineering team prepared large number of composite panels and metal parts followed by thousands of pages of certification reports. Nowadays when NPI phase of the project is finalized engineering team provides supports in many weight–reduction and cost-out activities.
Propellers Design and Analysis
Propellers Design and Analysis department consist of engineers who execute projects related to design and manufacturing support of composite propeller systems for a civil and military turboprop aircrafts (ex. Bombardier Q400-8, Xian MA700, Saab 340, Saab 2000, Lockheed Martin C-130J, ShinMaywa US-2, Fokker 50). We also work on projects for military hovercrafts: Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC), Ship to Shore Connector (SSC). Our employees cooperate on a daily basis with engineers from English branch of GE Aviation Systems (Dowty Propellers). They design modern propeller systems for new aircrafts, as well as improve existing GE products offered on the market. EDC also supports production, testing and service activities.
Power&UNISON team works on issues related to the mechanical, thermal and electrical equipment of aircraft components. For example, Electrical Load Management System (ELMS3) for Boeing 777X responsible for power management protection and distribution of electrical power up to 150kVA. Our team also supports Comac C919, Bombardier CRJ nacelle anti-ice system and Cessna Denali under cowl thermal management. October 2017 our team successfully conducted a second heat exchanger test campaign for the LEAP-1B engine which is used in Boeing 737-MAX. Engineers from EDC in cooperation with UNISON (Dayton, USA) designed, prepared and manufactured a test stand. Then conducted a series of tests. These tests led to the validation the numerical methods of analyzing the work of heat exchangers, that was previously developed by them. Conducting these tests in Poland proves the high knowledge and skills of the team, and the whole Aviation Systems Mechanical section.
Our team represents wide range of engineering skills and we are subject matter expert on different fields of “aerospace technologies”. We are involved in world class projects and our significant contribution is well recognized. In the future we would like to expand our portfolio with next great cooperation of products and customers.
