Abstract:

The U.S. Navy, as a participant in the United States Integrated High Performance Turbine Engine Technology IHPTET initiative, is dedicated to increasing aircraft engine performance to satisfy the propulsion requirements of future Navy aircraft. This is accomplished by identifying the propulsion requirements, in terms of performance and total cost, for specific Navy aircraft. The required engine technology advances are then broken down into specific engine component technology objectives. Advanced technology is then developed on the component level. Once an appropriate level of readiness is reached, the components are then assembled into an engine for overall advanced propulsion system demonstration. Technologies from this demonstrator engine are then made available to development engine programs, such as the Joint Strike Fighter JSF, for further development and eventual transition to production engine programs.
