Project Description

Know-How from research

JHK aerotech is a development service provider arised out of the institute of jet propulsion and turbomachinery of the University of Braunschweig. During his time at IFAS the founder Dipl.-Ing. Jan-Hendrik Krone was responsible for planning and building up the Propulsion Test Facility (PTF) Braunschweig and finally brought that new facility into service for scientific and industrial research programs. With that interdisciplinary test environment, the University of Braunschweig has filled a gap regarding test capabilities of coupled fan-intake-experiments in Europe. Since 2016 the PTF Braunschweig performs researches in order to support the development of future Ultra-High-Bypass jet engines for civil aerospace applications.
