The purpose of this program was to develop a hot gas vane motor that would have application to advanced aircraft APU starting. Over the course of the program, the motor design evolved to the point that -65 degrees F starts, hot restarts above 130 degrees F, and multiple starts without refurbishment were possible. Analytical studies evaluated concepts for reducing motor internal friction. Author
