The World's Largest Engine Test Cell

New state-of-the-art test cell

  • The first test cell built by a U.S. airline in more than 20 years.

  • Capable of safely running a mounted, stationary engine at full power with 150,000 pounds of thrust, the cell will allow Delta to test engines that are yet to be designed or built

  • The airline's new test cell and engine shop open the door to next generation engine capabilities, including the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000, Trent 7000 and Trent XWB and the PW1100 and PW1500 variants of the Geared Turbofan


The yCOM Auto Throttle System

The next step in automation and control!

  • The yCOM system is used for Facility and Engine Control

  • Designed with Operators in mind, the yCOM system provides the highest level of automation while providing complete control and safety

  • Capable of running through all required test procedures in semi or fully automatic mode

  • Allows never before seen levels of data precision over multiple runs


High Speed Data Acquisition System

Modular, Reliable and Fast!

  • This High Speed DAS is capable of logging data at over 100 samples per second from every probe, PLC and device in the facility

  • This LabView based system uses  CompactRIOs which provide high-performance processing capabilities and sensor-specific conditioned I/O

  • Designed with modularity and expandability in mind for all future engine models and variants

  • Allows for accurate and precisely times low-latency transfer of time-sensitive data you can trust
