Abstract:

This study, for OUSDRE Research and Advanced Technology, Military Systems Technology, examines the nature of the small gas turbine development process for military applications, attempts to identify gaps between current programs and probable future needs, and makes program recommendations for acquiring desirable new turbine technology. Small turbines are found to fall into one of four categories man-rated, expendable, auxiliary power, and ground vehicle engines. The technical requirements of each category are reviewed and possible RD opportunities identified.
