Swanda attended a ribbon cutting ceremony in Meridian, Mississippi to celebrate the completion of the two T-10 Jet Engine Test Cells.
The first is located in Meridian, Mississippi and the second is located in Kingsville, Texas. Swanda was instrumental in providing a new design on the Navy's existing after burner jet engine test cell facility. this is the first time since the late 1970's any major changes to the design has occurred on these jet engine test cells.
These new, cost saving designs have been accomplished without changing any of the airflow dynamics of the jet engine test cell. one of the better design changes involves an entirely new turning vane lifting system that is more cost effective, requires less maintenance, is safer, and operates much more trouble free than the old design.
