What is test vehicle design and test vehicle make?

We develop test vehicles for aerodynamic and aero-acoustic optimisation and validation of aero-engines and industrial gas turbine components (fan, compressor, combustor, turbine). The challenge in developing a test vehicle is the integration of several thousand measurement parameters (performance and health monitoring) without significantly affecting the aerodynamic behaviour of the components to be tested.

AneCom AeroTest has developed unique expertise in this field.


AneCom AeroTest supplies all services from one source up to manufacturing of a test vehicle:

  • Consultation and specification
  • Design (test vehicle HW & instrumentation)
  • Analysis (stress, thermal, CFD, vibration)
  • PDM/BOM (part handling & parts list)
  • Design review @ engineering board
  • Manufacturing & reworking of hardware
  • Instrumentation application
  • Assembly & installation
  • Assignment support


We have an unparalleled wealth of experience and contacts. This comes from providing services to many OEMs in the aero-engine and industrial gas-turbine industry. We have a unique combination of OEM experience, allied with the flexibility of a medium-sized company.

This combination enables provision of a turnkey solution from one single source. Test vehicle design and manufacture, instrumentation, test facility integration and test operation are also a one-stop shop. This means that there is just one interface for the customer, thereby simplifying the process.

Our aim is clear accountability. That is why we work in accordance with customer or AneCom AeroTest standards, whichever is preferred. We have our own design and analysis tools and methods available.

Dedicated customer teams ensure the protection of the customer’s intellectual property and a focus on outstanding quality and flexibility.
