Maximizing Space, Minimizing Danger

By focusing exclusively on solutions for jeb blast and noise attenuation, BDI has gained a clear understanding of the issues airport planners face today. Planning is a major challenge for Airport Operations Area (AOA) designers, particularly when demands for expansion increase while usable space is limited. BDI jet blast deflectors greatly reduct the space required between aircraft and jet blast-sensitive areas such as buildings, parking areas, taxiways and baggage handling areas. AOA management is dramatically improved with the use of BDI deflectors by providing more flexibility in planning airside space without sacrificing safety.

Mitigating Maintenance Run-Up Noise

The aviation industry has changed significantly in the past 20 years. The dramatic increase in air traffic worldwide has increased the number of take-off power ground run-ups and the noise they generate. Maintenance run-ups typically create a greater noise nuisance than actual takeoffs and are often scheduled at night. This can result in noise complaints from the community and create a serious public relations problem for airport officials. BDI pioneered a cost-effective, technologically-advanced solution for ground run-up noise attenuation.

We offer turnkey design-build GRE facilities that use patented components, proven designs and a spotless track record of successful installations. BDI's revolutionary ground run-up enclosures are suitable for all aircraft including the A380, B-777, and B-787. The combination of aerodynamically advanced Stabile Flow™ design with the effectiveness GRE with very high usability and noise reduction.

Focusing on Results

Every GRE project requires a customized approach due to the unique conditions and circumstances that exist at each airport and surrounding community. The process begins with a study by BDI acoustical and aerodynamic engineers that addresses site characteristics, meteorological factors, terrain details and aircraft specifications. This information becomes the core of the design and is carefully considered throughout the project.

BDI understands the complicated dynamics of a GRE project, which often include many diverse parties, each with a different background and agenda. In addition to being the turnkey supplier, BDI's role involves facilitating teamwork among the parties. This typically includes owners, users, consultants, regulatory agencies and the local community. BDI has learned through experience what is necessary to elicit cooperation from all involved.

For a complimentary analysis of how BDI technology can mitigate ground run-up noise problems, please contact us. BDI's philosophy is based on providing our customers with the highest quality products and services that match BDI's international reputation of performance and value earned over the last 50+ years.

This reputation includes technically sound designs, timely deliveries, professional installation and outstanding after-sale customer service.

Lynnco JBD

Historically, GRE designs placed square walls around the aircraft with little regard for aerodynamic performance. Jet blast was deflected using porous screens or integrated sloped rear walls. This resulted in a GRE that could be used successfully in only extremely limited wind conditions due to turbulence at the engine inlet, which can lead to dangerous stalls and surges. The acoustical benefits of a GRE are lost if an aircraft cannot use a facility in diverse wind conditions.

BDI's revolutionary ground run-up enclosures are suitable for all aircraft including the A380, B-777, and B-787. The combination of the aerodynamically advanced Stabile Flow™ design with the effectiveness of Noiseblotter™ acoustic panels provides a stable, effective GRE with very high usability and noise reduction.

Stablile Flow™

Recognizing the aerodynamic issues affecting successful high power run-ups within acoustic enclosures, BDI began an extensive development program using scale and computer modeling to develop a new approach in GRE technology. The resulting Stabile Flow™ design drastically improves GRE usability in adverse wind conditions.

By reducing vortex formation at the walls, pressure buildup at the rear of the aircraft, and inlet pressure drops, the Stabile Flow™ system assures appropriate flow conditions are maintained at the engine inlet and that exhaust recirculation is minimized.

Noiseblotter™ Panels

BDI's patented Noiseblotter™ panels were designed specifically for control of the low frequency noise generally associated with aircraft ground run-ups. They feature a high transmission loss (STC) of 36 and effective absorption of low frequency noise. These panels have a demonstrated noise reduction coefficient (NRC) of 1.25 and maintain an absorption coefficient of 1.0 at 100 Hz. The use of non-hydroscopic materials and acoustically transparent wrap materials assures a long, maintenance-free life.

Afterburner Run-Ups

BDI provides a full line of afterburner deflectors to protect the surrounding area from afterburner run-ups. These run-ups, typically on an unabated power check pad, produce tremendous amount of thrust and heat. BDI's afterburner series of deflectors provide a safe environment for these tests and minimizes jet blast hazards, fire and FOD.

Ground Run-Up Enclosures

A Ground Run-Up Enclosure (GRE) is a blast deflector with acoustic walls that enclose the aircraft. This technology is used when run-up noise is an issue for the surrounding community. BDI provides GRE solutions for all types of military aircraft. The GRE provides aerodynamic stability for efficient run-ups, along with patente acoustic panels for maximizing noise mitigation benefits. A GRE is effectively an open-top hush house, ideal for large cargo aircraft that cannot be accommodated in a traditional hush house.

BDI's leading-edge technology today is a result of the pioneering work of Stanley Lynn, who founded the Lynn Engineering Company in 1946; eleven years later, a division of the company eventually became BDI.


In 1957 Stanley Lynn loaded his homemade deflector prototype into the family station wagon and drove to El Segundo Airbase. The Lynnco model E became the U.S. military standard.


The Blast Deflector Division of Lynn Engineering Co. was created in Los Gatos, California.


In the 1960s BDI began expanding into the commercial aviation market, providing jet blast solutions for aircraft maneuvering at taxi/breakaway power. Providing needed jet blast protection for roadways, building and parking areas around the airport.


In the 1970s BDI continued to innovate its product and designs to accommodate new aircraft designs and more powerful engines.


In the 1980s BDI continued providing effective solutions for jet blast protection. Designing deflectors for the full afterburner operations of the most cutting aircraft like the B-1 bomber.


In the 1990s BDI recognized a growing need for engine run-up noise abatement technology, and designed and patented its stable flow GRE technology for the Chicago O'Hare airport.


BDI continues to innovate its products and designs in order to offer the most advanced technological solutions for the worlds most cutting edge aircraft.
