What we offer
KTR offers a full suite of advanced engineering and prototyping services from concept and simulation through to tested prototype.
KTR can dissect any set of application or vehicle requirements provided by a client, general or specific, and generate system and component level specifications. From there, KTR can very quickly provide roughly-sized 3D concept models for client review.
KTR can provide highly detailed, customized and fully parameterized models of a concept design in a variety of physical domains (dynamics, thermal/energy, fluid power) to be used in simulation. Simulation results can be used to inform design decisions and skip costly design/prototyping iterations.
KTR’s superior mechanical design expertise enables timely conversion of concept models into extremely detailed and comprehensive 3D models and assemblies. KTR can also develop control system designs for prototypes independently or provide support for a partner’s controls team.
Analysis & Optimization
Using a combination of the best commercially available software and KTR’s own customized proprietary software, KTR can conduct detailed analysis (including advanced FEA) to optimize designs and identify failure modes before manufacture.
Manufacturing Capabilities & Equipment
