Swanda Brothers, Inc. is proud to have been involved in the construction and fabrication of aviation test facilities dating back to the 1950’s and has expanded operations since. We are honored to have been the first company in the United States to fabricate the acoustical portion of an aviation test facility.
Some of our more recent accomplishments include taking part in the redesign of the Navy’s afterburning jet engine test cells. This redesign was instrumental in delivering better acoustical values, heat resistance, and providing 20 plus years of additional service life, all at a much lower cost.
Swanda also has helped with the remodel of the aircraft acoustical enclosure at Patuxent River, MD to accommodate the testing of the next generation F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. This facility was updated to accommodate the higher wind velocity, heat and trust of one of the most powerful after burning engines.
In recent years much of the aviation test facility work has been centered on afterburning engines, but our team is capable of providing any type of aviation facility from 8 meters to 14 meters in size. With our teaming partners we are able to provide the most current technologies that are out there.
