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 leads aerodynamic research, conducts PIV experiments at CycloTech’s facilities, and optimizes the airflow through the cyclogyro rotor using CFD simulations.
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.
Josef designs the CAD-based structural parts of the flight demonstrator and suspension system, and prepares and performs stress analyses of the required components.
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).
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.
