Research Institution
MACH-T3 will generate three concepts as described below in sufficient detail for a trade study to be performed. All concepts will meet the mandatory requirement of identical form and fit to the current BFV interface. Gear trains are the most efficient means for power transfer. As such, MACH-T3 will develop three concepts with variations on gear train technology and innovative materials applications and down select to one concept for detailed analysis for prototype preparation The trade study concept analysis will be conducted, using the materials and processes selected as optimal. The power, torque and weight capability will be evaluated along with cost versus weight reduction. The analysis will include the following aspects: Weight: Space Claim Integration Complexity: No change Major components analyzed will be: Gears, Bearings, Shaft, Housing, Efficiency.
