Accurate Automation Corporation (AAC) and Aviation Microjet Technologies (AMT) USA,have developed preliminary designs for an advanced, low-cost, high thrust-to-weightratio turbojet engine in support of the development of future low cost aerial targetsfor the U.S. Navy under the Target 21 program. The advanced engine design willproduce an increased thrust turbojet and an aft-fan configuration turbofan. Thepure turbojet version will have an estimated thrust of 180-lbf, well over the 160-lbfspecification. The aft fan version will deliver in excess of 250-lbf of thrust witha 54% SFC reduction over the base turbojet for an increase in production unit cost onthe order of 20-50%. During Phase II, we will complete the design, manufacture andground test a prototype of the advanced engines, with an option for installedperformance testing in one of AAC's research UAVs as well as wind tunnel tests.Additionally, we propose to use the small engine to evaluate the effects of usingWeakly Ionized Gas (WIG) shock wave modification technology to enhance theperformance of a turbojet engine. During Phase II we will design and implement aplasma generation system to modify the shock structure that exists in ahigh-performance supersonic compressor.
