Honeywell receives funding to develop gas turbine engine technologies

  • 17-Jul-2009 01:45 EDT
The U.S. Air Force awarded Honeywell a contract with a potential value of up to $70 million for the development of new technologies for gas turbine engines. Funding will begin immediately and will be used to support technology development activity for the Versatile Affordable Advanced Turbine Engine (VAATE) program, a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Defense, NASA, the U.S. Department of Energy, and industry, which is intended to develop revolutionary and innovative technologies by 2017 that will lead to a tenfold increase in turbo-propulsion affordability. The technologies developed will be used across a spectrum of manned and unmanned fixed wing and rotorcraft platforms in both military and commercial applications.

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.
