Abstract
"This Phase I program will result in the availability of a reduced cost interim SCRAMJET engine panel manufacturing method to support current test/demonstration engine manufacturing phases of the HyTECH (Hypersonic Technology) Program. It will increaseengine design options, provide a demonstration of the technical and economic feasibility, and lay the groundwork for implementing a needed new and novel manufacturing process to support future production engine orders.It is anticipated that the successful completion of the proposed Phase I and Phase II programs will result in a 90% panel production cost reduction from the current $76,000 per engine set.Ormond, LLC utilizes novel experimental abrasive waterjet tooling and processes to manufacture SCRAMJET ground demonstration engine cases with integral heat exchanger grooves. The proposed program addresses the advancement of the technology to make itfeasible for economical machining of SCRAMJET panels. Although Ormond is currently capable of manufacturing acceptable engine case components in the laboratory, additional development work is required to advance current capabilities to derive a reliable,low cost manufacturing method and to increase the engineering design options that are available to advance the SCRAMJET engine technology in general. It is anticipated that the successful completion of the proposed Phase I and Phase II programs will result in a 90% panel production cost redu
