MTU covers all aspects of validation and certification services for engine testing, whether military or commercial. The company puts materials, components and fully assembled engines through their paces, applying its expertise to designing and setting up the tests, carrying them out, and then evaluating the data. MTU has its own high-tech test cells, makes use of test facilities at partner institutions and develops its own highly elaborate test campaigns in house, including all the instrumentation.
MTU is increasingly using computers and digital models to simulate costly and time-intensive validation tests and material developments. This digital approach significantly speeds up the time it takes to design, develop and manufacture an engine and then bring it to market.
