PHASE III SUCCESS: $9 Million Through Contracts With The Navy And Commercial Sales Topic Number: N08-035

PHASE III SUCCESS: $9 Million Through Contracts With The Navy And Commercial Sales Topic Number: N08-035

AS PART OF the Next Generation Jammer (NGJ) program for the Navy’s tactical aircraft, NAVAIR required the development of a submerged Ram Air Turbine (RAT) capable of producing 60 kW of power at a speed of 220 knots at 25,000 feet. The existing technology, which had been in place for over forty years, was only capable of half that goal, and desperately needed a power upgrade. Advanced Technologies Group, Inc. (ATGI) responded to this request by developing a High Powered Ram Air Turbine (HiRAT). The NGJ program sought to develop new ways to disable enemy radars, however, the transmitter pods, which contain the RAT in the front of the pod, had to be reconfigured. ATGI’s HiRAT system is able to produce twice the required power for a given airspeed and altitude, making it the most efficient turbine on the market. Located in the center of the pod as opposed to the front, the HiRAT allows radar equipment to be located in the forward pod section. The power output of the turbine is controlled with an actuated exhaust outlet. This active power control system extends the flight envelope in which the turbine can be used. It also serves as an emergency shut down system. The HiRAT’s elegant and aerodynamic design reduces drag and fuel consumption. As an additional benefit, the Turbine-Generator system does not include a gearbox, which considerably reduces the weight and results in less maintenance. Although ATGI started off years behind other companies that were doing the same kind of work, they were the first to wind tunnel test full scale and develop more than required power. In... read more

Next-Gen Jammer Generator Eyed For Other Uses

Next-Gen Jammer Generator Eyed For Other Uses

Aviation Week & Space Technology Sep 23, 2013 Image Credit: ATGI Graham Warwick Think “ram-air turbine,” and the pop-out propeller providing emergency power on an airliner comes to mind, or the air-driven prop powering the ALQ-99 jamming pod on a Boeing EA-18G Growler. But what if huge amounts of power are needed, for electronic attack, long-range sensors or directed-energy weapons—and not just in emergencies, but across the flight envelope? Wind-tunnel tests on a high-power, air-driven generator designed for the U.S. Navy’s Next Generation Jammer (NGJ) pod have been completed and its developer is looking at other applications, including power generation on unmanned aircraft. The high-power ram-air turbine (Hi-RAT) developed by Advanced Technologies Group Inc. (ATGI) is a ducted turbine embedded within the pod, with inlet and exhaust doors for high power when open and low drag when closed. Hi-RAT was flight-tested by one of the NGJ bidders, but the Raytheon jammer selected by the Navy uses a different powergeneration system. The July award of a $279.4 million contract for the NGJ technology-development phase is being protested by one of the losing bidders, BAE Systems, opening up the possibility that the competition may have to be restaged. ATGI, meanwhile, demonstrated the performance of its NGJ power-generation system to the Navy and prime contractors on other electronic-warfare and unmanned-aircraft programs during tests of the Hi-RAT installed in a pod in the Calspan wind tunnel in Buffalo, N.Y., in late August. Hi-RAT produces 2-3 times the power of competing systems, says ATGI President John Justak. For NGJ, “we demonstrated full power over the full flight envelope: threshold and objective,” he says. “We... read more
