Low-Noise Propulsion Technologies

Techsburg is a leader in the field of low-noise propulsion technologies, for both open propellers and ducted fans. In conjunction with partner company AVEC, Inc, Techsburg has designed low-noise propellers and propulsion systems for over a dozen unique aircraft of various configurations. Typical projects involve the use of custom in-house design/optimization software to minimize noise while meeting performance constraints, leading to testing/validation in the Virginia Tech Anechoic Wind Tunnel, and ultimately flight testing by the customer.

The team of Techsburg and AVEC’s extensive experience in this area includes manned/unmanned aircraft and pusher/tractor/over-wing installations. Prior projects have included collaboration with several airframe companies and most major propeller manufacturers.
