The JetX Process
We have created an efficient working model around a very interesting project. This means that students gets the chance to build their own theoretical model, applying knowledge they've acquired while in university. At the same time, they will practise CAD & simulations, design for manufacture & assembly, as well as test their creation.
Our story so far has been full of unknowns, despite being a highly successful one. We explored the capabilities of an organisation like ours, we explored what our team can do and we are still exploring. The quest for the full potential of this project continues and we are yet to reach our major milestones.
The X-Plorer is our current project and was completed in April 2017. As of September 2017 it remains operational with further testing scheduled to take place in fall 2017.
It is without doubt that the X-Plorer 1 was a huge success! But we learned so much in the 2 and a half year process of developing it, that it would be wasted to not put it to good use.
The X-Plorer 2 is much more than a successor of the first version. It features a slightly larger core, double the bypass ratio reaching 10:1, more efficient fan blades and LP turbine stages, thrust reverses and more! It is an ongoing project and is set for completion by the beginning of 2019.
One of the things that make jet engines such an exciting machine for many of us is the thrust that they produce. No such better example than a low bypass turbofan designed to balance cruising and combat performance for use in a fighter jet.
Plans for the design of Kronos were introduced in September 2017 and its development will be dealt with by a dedicated team running in parallel to the X-Plorer 2 team. It is an ongoing project and is set for completion by the end of 2019.
