PERFORMANCE: T900

ATEC VALIDATES INSTALLATION CAPABILITY OF T900 IMPROVED TURBINE ENGINE ON BLACK HAWK AND APACHE READ MORE

The Improved Turbine Engine Program (ITEP) is the U.S. Army’s initiative to develop a new engine to power its Black Hawk and Apache fleets.

WHY WE NEED A NEW ENGINE

RIGHT NOW, OUR WARFIGHTERS FLY INTO BATTLE ABOARD BLACK HAWK AND APACHE HELICOPTERS THAT ARE UNDERPOWERED IN HIGH AND HOT CONDITIONS, AND THAT USE TOO MUCH FUEL.

engine life

The new engine must be 50% more powerful, 25% more fuel efficient, and provide 20% longer engine life over the current engine, while also meeting stringent performance goals in high and hot conditions at 6,000 feet and 95 degrees.

More Power to Grow

ATEC

A JOINT VENTURE OF HONEYWELL AND
PRATT & WHITNEY

In 2006, Honeywell and Pratt & Whitney joined together specifically to develop an advanced turboshaft helicopter engine that achieves the aggressive performance goals set by the U.S. Army: a 50% more powerful and 25% more fuel-efficient engine for the Black Hawk and Apache fleets. The dual-spool T900 engine developed by ATEC will meet or exceed every performance standard set by the Army. ATEC supports U.S. jobs in engineering, supply chain, manufacturing and logistics. Honeywell and Pratt & Whitney have decades of experience powering commercial and military aircraft – including helicopters, cargo planes, tankers, trainers and fighters. ATEC combines the best technology and experience of these two industry leaders to produce the T900.
