    BQM1BR, manufactured by defunct CBT (Brazilian Company of Tractors), of the Jet Propulsion! Turbine Tiête TJ-2, manufactured by the CTA (Aerospace Technical Center). This prototype would serve as aerial target, and it seems that conducted a flight in 1983

    TURBOJET TJ1000
    Military engine capable of providing up to 1000 lbf of thrust power. A very good choice for high performance UAVs, Cruise Missiles and air target drones. The large number of possible applications for this engine makes it very attractive and a potential exponent within brazilian aeronautical industries.

    TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION

    • Thrust: 1000lbf
    • Specific Consumption: 1.18 kg/kgf/h
    • Weight: 67Kg
    • Lenght: 1080mm
    • Diameter: 350mm

    The TJ-1000 jet engine on a segment of the AV-TM-300 cruise missile

    From Rio de Janeiro

    In 2003 the Brazilian company Polaris, based in Sao Jose dos Campos-SP, has initiated a project 10 years later, would become a source of pride for us Brazilians. TJ1000 was born the development of a turbojet 67kg, 120 cm length, 35 cm in diameter and able to generate 1000 pounds of thrust. The first of its kind developed in Brazil with sufficient level of maturity to be marketed.

    Other turbojet projects existed in the country, but most were born as a result of academic research and experimentation purposes. The TJ1000 is a well-defined product, with patterns that give you the ability to be produced in series.
    The challenges faced by the company were not simple throughout the development, and an example is the four compressor stages machined in one piece. Part of enormous technical complexity due to the precision that each fin must have in its dimensions in order to direct air precisely the way the bill provides, otherwise the engine power is compromised and may even cause unnecessary turbulence inside the turbine making -a fail.
    During a brief interview in April this year, during LAAD, Mairun Medici, Director of Polaris, explained that the TJ1000 is a project that was in the pre-series stage and has served as the company's technology demonstrator. Despite being the first Brazilian model turbojet developed for commercial purposes, Medici is reticent to consider their product as the "first national turbojet", considering the national projects mentioned above as "successful initiatives."


    Medici also explains that it is not the TJ1000 that will equip the cruise missile AV / TM-300 Avibrás, but a derived turbine, developed in part by the very Avibrás, based on technology transferred by Polaris.

    Develop different versions of the TJ1000 is currently the company's goal, thinking in larger and smaller models for use in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, missiles and even as a turboprop aircraft engine the size of a T-27 Tucano, for example.

    Currently the company is also working on another turbojet, the TJ1200, with 1,200 pounds of thrust and weighing 70kg. It is considered an evolution of the TJ1000.

    Turkey and South Africa have shown great interest in the Polaris turbines and some contacts were also made with Venezuela. Considering the company's ability to design and adapt turbines according to customer needs, other countries should keep an eye on the products of this Brazilian company.

    Another company that is now entering the world of aircraft not manned is Dronetech SAPI de CV, a company located in the city of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon and dedicated to the production of aircraft not manned developed by Mexican human capital.

    "We started the project when we were masters of the Tec de Monterrey, he started thanks to the concern of our students. After we became independent and started the project. Today, we design the plane and send making molds to manufacture here, then send them from making the wings, fuselage, "said Arturo Galvan, General Manager Dronetech.


    The Monterrey company has two types of drones in its portfolio, consisting of the Albatross and the Pelican.
    In the first case it has a wingspan of five meters and a length of three meters, in addition to having two petrol engines and weighs only 120 kilograms. Thanks to these features the team can stay in the air up to 60 hours at a speed of 100 kilometers per hour.

    While the Pelican is a little smaller, because it has three meters wide and has the capacity for autonomy of 12 hours. However one advantage of this model is that it has the ability to take off vertically, while the Albatross traditionally does.

    "It's much easier to take off vertically, to begin a court is not required, and for the computer, it is easier to control a traditional one vertical takeoff," said Galvan.

    Notably Dronetech has a production capacity and development 10 unmanned aircraft per year, which are performed under high quality standards for your system meets all customer requirements.

    The drones also the Monterrey company are produced based on fiberglass, aircraft grade, as well as some carbon fibers.
