is better

We are not manufacturers. We’re technology innovators with a passion for blade-based propulsion and the belief that we can help create a better world.

In collaboration with leading UK universities and specialist companies, we discover, develop, test and patent innovative technologies and license their use to global manufacturers across a variety of industries. Experience has taught us that the earlier we are involved in the development process, the more beneficial our technologies can be.

Our inspiration

It was a remarkable scientific discovery by our founder David Taylor that inspired the creation of Oscar Propulsion: The technology grew from the Marine side of our business where we were tasked to mitigate underwater noise from propeller cavitation. We developed a technology called PressurePores, a series of small, angled holes on the leading edge of the propeller blade that helps reduce pressure fluctuations.

This phenomenon has led us to develop ground-breaking technologies that deliver more efficient paddles & oars and quieter turbofan aircraft.


Our leadership team continues to build a culture of success that supports growth in all sectors worldwide
