The market for aircraft engine test cells has a lot of potential due to advancements in engine technology, particularly in the development of tiny core aircraft engines. NASA's HyTEC initiative, backed by combined investments totaling USD 18.8 million through cost-share contracts with GE Aviation and Pratt & Whitney, aims to tackle various technical hurdles related to downsizing engine cores. These challenges encompass the advancement of high-pressure compressors and turbines and improvements in combustor and turbine materials for high temperatures. The project's primary objective is to achieve a 5% to 10% decrease in fuel consumption and a corresponding reduction in emissions by concentrating on these areas. Additionally, it aims to enable smaller engine cores to generate significantly higher power output. This increased power extraction is vital for the future of hybrid- and turbo-electric aircraft, which will demand substantial energy reserves.
