This U.S. Air Force CV-22 Osprey is powered by a Rolls-Royce AE 1107C-Liberty engine.

The U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) awarded Rolls-Royce an 11-month, $75 million MissionCare contract, including four option years. Logistics support will be provided for the Rolls-Royce AE 1107C-Liberty engines that power the U.S. Marine Corps’ MV-22 Osprey and U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command’s CV-22 Osprey. The total contract has a potential value exceeding $600 million. This MissionCare contract will provide a full suite of engine management services support for more than 250 aircraft. The services will include engine management and repair, logistics support, and field service representatives at six V-22 operating locations in the U.S.

After many years of flat-lining in the supply of new commercial jet engines—with improved models, but with designs dating back to the late 1990s, relying on a continuous path of evolutionary development—a new generation of super-efficient powerplants is entering service, introducing many technologies that will also be applied to future engines.
SAE International is working with the joint-venture initiative looking to deploy a high-powered DC fast-charging network for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) covering long-distance travel routes in Europe.
Fuel efficiency—and the economic and ecological benefits associated with it—continues to be the white rabbit of the global aviation industry. While engine builders look toward composites and electrification, and airframe designers toward lightweighting and aerodynamics, engineers at NASA’s Glenn Research Center recently completed testing of a novel concept: the boundary layer ingesting propulsor.
S.S. White Technologies is supplying flexible rotary shafts for the Honeywell Aerospace Air Turbine Starter on the next-gen GE Aviation GE9X high-bypass turbofan engines.
