AbstractThe purpose of this proposal is to demonstrate the effectiveness of using Acree Technology’s erosion resistant coating to protect large-size turbine engine compressor airfoils for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Short Take-Off and Vertical Landing (STOVL) aircraft. The JSF STOVL compressor airfoils for both the LiftFan and the F-135 engine are constructed using integrally bladed rotors that can be over a 1 meter in diameter. Acree’s erosion resistant coating has been extensively tested in previous projects and is currently at Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 6. Acree has large deposition chambers for applying our erosion resistant coating that are well suited for coating the JSF airfoils.
