Jet Engine PBS TJ150

The PBS TJ150 small jet engine was developed for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), target drones and missiles.

  • Compact design

  • Excellent thrust-to-weight ratio

  • The built-in starter-generator allows a reliable start and power supply to the deck network

  • The version with pyrotechnic ignition available

  • Modification according to customers' needs (adjustment of hinges, the length of the outlet nozzle, possibility of landing on water)

  • Windmill starting option under 7 sec.

The PBS TJ150, with a maximum thrust of 1,500 N, is the most powerful turbojet engine produced by PBS. It was originally designed based on the PBS TJ100 (PBS's most well-known and popular turbojet engine), utilizing the same outer diameter measurements and engine weight but with a slightly more compact body frame and 20% more power.

PBS combines our more than 50 years of business expertise and customer service experience to research, design and develop the products that our customers need and want, to their specifications. This is true for the PBS TJ150 turbojet engine which can be used in a wide variety of aerial vehicles, target drones, aerial targets, unmanned aerial vehicles and other unmanned systems, and can be modified to the customer's requirements.

Its advantage is its compact design, low weight with a thrust of up to 1,500 N, and low fuel consumption in the given power category. The generator output is 600 W. One of the PBS TJ150 engine versions enables landing on water. The PBS TJ150 engine is a single-shaft jet engine consisting of a radial compressor, radial and axial diffuser, annular combustion chamber, axial turbine and a fixed outlet nozzle.

The version with pyrotechnic ignition expands the in-flight start envelope up to 0.8 M, extending the engine's application to high altitude air-launched defence systems.

Standard accessories: control system (FADEC), ignition, connecting cable
Optional accessories: electromagnetic fuel valve, fuel filter, control lever, signalling panel, boost pump, reduction valve, converter CAN, converter CAN-USB, user software, pyrotechnic ignition
