The HEETE is on

  • 30-Jun-2008 06:29 EDT

The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory issued a contract to GE-Aviation to develop technology for the Highly Efficient Embedded Turbine Engine (HEETE) program focused on enhancing the endurance and range of next-generation mobility and unmanned applications. The first phase of the contract, which runs through July 2009, will focus on development and demonstration testing of the new compressor and associated thermal management technologies. Development work will be conducted in Evandale, OH, and testing is scheduled to conclude in mid-2009. HEETE is aimed at developing embedded technologies that support future intelligent surveillance and reconnaissance, tanker, mobility, and UAVs.

Thermal imaging data obtained from a FLIR high-performance camera shows that the expected turbine output temperature is approximately 285°C when the helicopter is in forward flight. However, during hover operations a steady state temperature of about 343°C will be reached.
