Research and development in EDC
EDC as one of the biggest engineering centers in Europe is a hub for multiple Research and Development projects. We are an organization that draws on the long scientific tradition and latest technologies of General Electric and Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute of Aviation. With this robust foundation, qualified R&D engineers, world-class research infrastructure, and innovation spirit we constantly develop state-of-the-art technologies and products allowing to solve problems and address needs of our customers.
Scope of research
Our Research and Development programs focus on aircraft engines (especially design, analyses, testing and sophisticated manufacturing methods) as well as power engineering technologies. We specialize in the design of aircraft propulsion systems and composite airframe structures. Our company creates and tests safety critical software and avionics systems. It also develops engines fleet management applications and aircraft health monitoring solutions based on the Big Data analyzes. Our engineering teams use innovative additive technologies that are a part of the fourth industrial revolution. This places us among the top industry research centers in Poland, Europe, and even the world. Part of our activities are co-founded by EU R&D financing programs.
Our engineers can conduct research activities in 9 modern laboratories: Heat Transfer and Fluid Mechanics Laboratory, Bearings and Components Test Laboratory, Educational Engine Laboratory, Whirligig Test Laboratory, Aviation Additive Laboratory, Avionics and Digital Systems Laboratory (Skylab), European Turbine Airfoil Center, Materials Technology Laboratory, and a Gas Turbine Center. We provide constant investment in our R&D infrastructure to assure we have access to latest, most advanced research capabilities.
