The Naval Air Systems Command has awarded Pratt & Whitney (P&W) with a $12.7 million, 39-month contract in which the company will develop and demonstrate high-value turbine engine technology for use in the U.S. Navy and Air Force unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The advanced propulsion technologies will be based on the PW800 engine core, with its high specific thrust in a compact design. P&W expects to concentrate on high-temperature, lightweight material systems that can double propulsion system capability. For more information on the technology, visit P&W's website at www.pratt-whitney.com.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
