Computational Fluid Dynamics
Entecho’s CFD team is central to the development of our lifting technology. The team's expertise and the use of the STAR-CD CFD software package allows them to accurately and efficiently predict the flight performance, lifting efficiency and control authorities of our prototype vehicles.
Our mechanical engineers design components for optimal strength, minimum weight and maximum reliability. The team is committed to the process of applying engineering mechanics and structural analysis within a 3D Computer Aided Design model to create a functional and safe structure. This team is comprised of our in-house engineers and our partner, Strike Products engineering.
Entecho’s proficient composite team has made extensive use of advanced composite materials to achieve the necessary strength, light weight and crash protection in each of the Entecho craft. Our engineers team with our partner, Composite components, for both structural design and manufacturing processes for each component. This team is fundamental to the successful development of each prototype vehicle.
At Entecho it is our policy to employ state-of-the art flight control design techniques, including model based simulations and fly-by-wire control systems. These analysis tools and systems are carefully developed and validated by our accomplished flight control team in order to produce maximum flight performance without compromising safety. This team is comprised of our in-house engineers working with our partner, Quisitive Pty Ltd.
Our team of experienced and highly trained technicians manufacture components, assemble mechanical systems, prepare and conduct experiments, and source the necessary parts critical to the construction of our prototype models.
Procurement and Infrastructure Team
Any fast growing company needs to swiftly and efficiently address the many changing requirements triggered by each growth phase. The Procurement and Infrastructure Team ensures that the infrastructure and technical working environment is consistent with providing the most efficient output possible. The team also provides the worldwide sourcing of components and specialised tools which is a crucial element of Entecho’s rapid prototyping capability.
