THE MOST EXCITING AND INNOVATIVE PROJECT
Hans-Georg oversees the business in terms of strategic positioning, business and partnership development, marketing, administration, and finance.
HEAD OF AIRCRAFT DEVELOPEMENT
Klemens heads the development of Cyclogyro applications and the integration of the propulsion system in different types of aircraft. He is responsible for the configuration, design concept, and production of the flight demonstrator.
HEAD OF ROTOR DEVELOPMENT
Lukas leads research and development of the core technology of the company, and is responsible for the optimization of the Cyclogyro rotor in terms of both performance and durability.
Anouk holds a PhD in unsteady aerodynamics and leads the aerodynamic research activities, such as the aerodynamic using CFD simulations and flow visualisation experiments (e.g. PIV).
Franz is responsible for all electronic configurations, approvals, and safety testing of the test equipment and the flight demonstrator.
As a mechatronic engineer, Michaela is responsible for the configuration of the drivetrain and the development of the rotor control system (RCS), and the flight control system (FCS).
Patrick is responsible for the assembly and testing of the Cyclogyro rotor units and their components. He creates test bench constructions and mobile testing equipment and performs wind tunnel tests.
Rafael is responsible for the selection of wind tunnel facilities, the organization and planning of test series, and post-processing of test data, as well as defining the requirements for fast forward flight.
Anand performs aerodynamic research, develops CFD models for optimization of the performance of Cyclogyro rotors, does flight performance enhancement research, and carries out parameter studies.
CONTROL SYSTEM PROGRAMMER
Davide is an embedded systems programmer, responsible for the system architecture of the rotor control system, and its pre-testing and optimizing through HiL (Hardware in the Loop).
Simon is responsible for the quality of all incoming components, continuous improvement of the assembly and prototyping area and system tests of the demonstrator.
The Slovakian based mechanical engineer supports CycloTech by designing structural parts of the flight demonstrator and its energy system and performing of stress analyses of the required components.
Gregor runs his own engineering company and supports CycloTech with his experience regarding drive train, suspension and testing devices.
Aleksandar attends the bachelor’s programme for development engineers at the University of Applied Science in Wels and supports the prototype and design engineers of CycloTech.
CycloTech decided to concentrate on its core competence – the development of the Cyclogyro rotors. We benefit from the experience of specialists rather than spending our time and capacity in building up engineering or manufacturing experience that our partners already possess. Thus we cooperate with top experts for long-term development partnerships.
We thank all our partners for their flexibility and passion in working on this project.
