This study developed data on General Electric common core derivative engines for use in Maritime Patrol Aircraft MPA concept formulation studies. The study included the screening of potential General Electric turbofan and turbopropturboshaft engines and the preparation of technical and planning information on three of the most promising engine candidates. Screening of General Electric derivative candidates was performed utilizing an analytical MPA model using synthesized mission profiles to rank the candidates in terms of fuel consumption, weight, cost and complexity. The three turboprop engines selected for further study were as follows TF34 growth derivative version with boost and new LPT TF34T7 Study A1, F404 derivative with booster stages and new LPT F404T1 Study A1, and GE27 scaled and boosted study engine GE27T3 Study A1. Volume I summarizes the screening analysis and contains technical, planning, installation, cost and development data for the three selected turboprop engines. Volumes II, III and IV of this report contain the detailed performance data estimates for the GE27T3 Study A1, TF34T7 Study A1 and F404T1 Study A1 turboprop engines, respectively. Author
