"A power and cooling system, that could be installed on heavy aircrafts to support special applications including countermeasures and directed energy weapons is desirable. A continuous electrical output of one megawatt of 3 phase, 110 VAC at 400 Hz, inaddition to 800 lbs/min of pressurized air at 50 psia, are required. An added benefit of this system is that it could serve as an auxiliary power unit on the ground, making the aircraft independent of any ground support equipment or generators driven bythe main engine. The requirement to supply electrical power and cooling air on the ground and in the air, dictates that the system needs to perform from sea level to 40,000 ft altitude. Since this system is airborne, size and weight should be minimized to1400 lbs.Innovative Power Solutions is proposing to explore among other options, a megawatt generator which is driven by a power turbine. The turbine can supply compressed air required for cooling in addition to driving the generator.A power system that will meet the requirements of this solicitation will enable heavy large aircrafts to operate out of remote fields, carry directed energy weapons and serve in both transportation and offensive roles. The effort described in this proposal has a significant opportunity for commercialization in both the commercial and military markets. The anticipated military application of these technologies is future insertion into heavy aircrafts with larg
