Aerojet, FTT team up to develop NASA's new rocket engines

  • 07-May-2010 12:28 EDT

Aerojet and Florida Turbine Technologies (FTT) formed a strategic partnership to compete for research, development, and production on NASA's new hydrocarbon engine and advanced upper stage engine. This partnership expands that which Aerojet and FTT have under way on the U.S. Air Force Hydrocarbon Boost Technology Demonstrator (HBTD) and Upper Stage Engine Technology programs. The HBTD program is developing components and enabling technology for a hydrocarbon engine. Aerojet and FTT will provide the innovation to expand this effort into a comprehensive engine development program that provides transformational propulsion capability for NASA, U.S. DOD, and commercial launch vehicles.

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.
