Modular Aircraft Engine Logistics System 680310

Projected increases in operating temperature for gas turbine engines for 1970-80 pose design challenges for increased operating speed and reduced size and weight for accessories. The Module Accessory Concept presents one approach to achieve a size match while addressing the logistics problem associated with sub-sonic aircraft and small utility helicopters for military service, particularly for relatively short duration missions. Key technology needs to implement the concept are identified and possible design approaches are suggested. The authors recommend early attention to the military operational problems of Maintainability-Training and Total Support Costs in new concepts as a response to the new demands of Life Cycle Costing.
