Northwest Aerospace SME, GH Dynamics Ltd approached the VEC to support the product development of their innovative Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV).
With access to the VEC‘s Virtual Engineering Simulation Laboratory (VESL) and in-house expertise, the VEC team provided design support advice to GH Dynamics and developed virtual models and provided simulation expertise to test and validate the design. A design review and visualisation of potential applications using the VEC stereoscopic visualisation laboratory was also facilitated.
The result of working with the VEC enabled GH Dynamics to de-risk the product development process and has resulted in them securing additional investment and safeguarding jobs.
The VEC members have been extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They have helped us with modelling and kept us up to date with items of interest. They are readily approachable and open to new ideas...the work they have carried out will help us to win further investment for our product and provide a foundation for increasing the design space.
