Diffusing the situation

  • 18-Nov-2008 03:52 EST
Pratt & Whitney and Volvo Aero Norge signed an agreement to manufacture diffuser cases for the F135 propulsion system for the F35 Lightning II. This agreement, combined with previous agreements signed with the company, has a potential value of more than $700 million in production over the life of the program. The diffuser case diffuses and regulates the speed of airflow in the engine, allowing the combustor to work most effectively. Volvo Aero Norge also recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Volvo Aero and GE Aviation solidifying collaboration to find opportunities for the Norwegian industry in fulfillment of potential offset and industrial cooperation obligations accepted by Gripen International, which markets and produces the Gripen aircraft powered by a derivative of the F414 engine designated the F414G.
