This study developed data on Detroit Diesel Allison DDA common core derivative engines for use in Maritime Patrol Aircraft MPA concept formulation studies. The study included the screening of potential DDA turbopropturboshaft engines and the preparation of technical and planning information on three of the most promising engine candidates plus an all new engine. Screening of DDA 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 a derivative of the unity size T701-AD-700 shaft power engine with rematched turbine PD 370-37, an advanced T701 turboprop derivative with 251 overall pressure ratio and a scaled ATEGG demonstrated compressor PD 370-40, an advanced T701 turboprop derivative with 17.71 overall pressure ratio and a scaled ATEGG demonstrated compressor PD 370-41. Data is also presented on a new advanced turboprop engine with 301 overall pressure ratio which incorporates compressor, combustor, turbine, and cooling technology now under development and demonstration at DDA. The documentation consists of six separate reports prepared in the following manner. One report summarizes the engine screening analysis and describes the approach to, and the conclusions of the study. A separate report for each of the three derivative engines and for the new turboprop present estimates of performance, weight, and dimensional data. The engineering budgetary estimates of the development, acquisition, and service costs for each of the four engines are presented in a separate report. Author
