Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


IV.C.01. Integrated High Performance Turbine Engine Technology (IHPTET). Demonstrate, by FY94, a 25 percent reduction in specific fuel consumption (SFC) and 60 percent increase in power-to-weight ratio over current modern production engines via Joint Turbine Advanced Gas Generator–I (JTAGG-1) demonstration. By FY97, demonstrate improvements of 30 percent reduction in SFC and 80 percent increase in power-to-weight ratio via JTAGG-II demonstration. Develop for future demonstration gas turbine engine technology to effectively double the propulsion system capability for turboshaft engines through a 40 percent reduction of SFC and 120 percent increase in power-to-weight ratio. Demonstrate emerging technologies related to IHPTET goals in areas of structures, controls, aerodynamics, advanced materials, and accessories which provide reduced vulnerability and improved reliability and maintainability.

Supports: RAH-66 Comanche, AH-64 Apache Improvement, Joint Transport Rotorcraft (JTR), and system upgrades, EELS, D&SA, MBS, and CSS Battle Labs. Dual use potential.
