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


IV.C.04p. Integrated High Performance Turbine Engine Technology (IHPTET) Joint Turbine Advanced Gas Generator (JTAGG) Phase III. Complete in FY98 the IHPTET technologies affordability analysis and initiate the third phase of the Joint Turbine Advanced Gas Generator (JTAGG) program. By FY00, complete component testing of JTAGG III technologies. By FY03, effectively double the propulsion system capability through demonstration of a 40 percent reduction in specific fuel consumption and a 120 percent increase in SHP/wt. ratio. Emerging technologies critical to achievement of IHPTET goals in the areas of structures, controls, aerodynamics, advanced materials, and accessories are demonstrated to assure durability, reliability, and maintainability are built into the engine design, providing high levels of readiness and mission success.

Supports: Precision Strike, Advanced Land Combat, Technology for Affordability, RAH-66 Comanche, AH-64 Apache Improvement, NRTC, and system upgrades, EELS, D&SA, MBS, and CSS Battle Labs. Dual-use potential.
