Propulsion Engineer

Who we are

We are a start-up start-up based out of Bengaluru & Delhi NCR. We are engaged in development of next generation missions and technologies (NGM&T) towards future warfare needs of the Indian Defence forces. It is undertaking research towards enhancing persistence and autonomy for unmanned vehicles and robotic swarms. NRT’s product development portfolio includes a solar power stratospheric high altitude pseudo satellite (HAPS) unmanned platform and an air/ground launched stand-off autonomous system.

Roles and Responsibilities:

  • Accomplish and support activities involving the propulsion system design and development of UAVs.
  • Initial sizing calculation of propulsion system for given operational requirement and evaluate the aerodynamic characteristics of propeller using low fidelity and high fidelity tools.
  • Prepare CAD model using Solid works / Catia for the propulsion-related tasks.
  • Sizing and selection of optimum propulsion system for fixed-wing and VTOL platforms.
  • Perform CFD analyses of propulsion systems of UAVs to evaluate aerodynamic performance estimation and carry out the design trade-off studies.
  • Handle the experimental test setup readiness and assist with the data acquisition and post-processing.
  • Develop the propulsion sizing and performance evaluation code using Python/MATLAB for UAV design and development.
  • Prepare the technical documents which support the design, analysis, and tests.

Candidate must have strong fundamentals in the following areas:

  • Blade Aerodynamics and Structure
