Modified jet engine for unmanned aircrafts


We have recently expanded our product line to include a new variant of our smallest turbo jet engine with thrust increased to 95 lbf - we proudly present to you PBS TJ40-G1NS.


The new version of the PBS TJ40 engine, PBS TJ40-G1NS is designed and optimized especially for attritable unmanned applications. The  PBS TJ40-G1NS jet engine excels with a maximum thrust of 95 lbf, making it an ideal choice for target drones that need an affordable, reliable, and high-performance propulsion system. The engine provides an electrical power output of 150 W and is designed for air-launched use in altitudes up to 14,764 ft with a maximum flight level of 29,528 ft above sea level. The outer diameter of the engine is 5.79 inches and only weights 7.94 lbs. 

The increased performance performance and lower acquisition cost provided by the PBS TJ40-G1NS meet the requirements of manufacturers of attritable unmanned aerial vehicles. PBS Aerospace engines cover thrust categories from 89 lbf to 337 lbf. The main features that differentiate PBS jet engines from the competition are great air-launched capability, high electrical output, and excellent thrust-to-weight ratio.

We also recently launched a fuel-lubricated modification of the popular PBS TJ100P engine and a 337 lbf trubojet variant called the PBS TJ150. We are developing a new turbo jet engine with thrust exceeding 450 lbf. That engine will be designed for larger unmanned aerial vehicles.
