GE Aviation Wins Conceptual Design & Trade Analysis Contract for US Army’s RAEICS Program


GE-aviation
In April of 2015, GE Aviation announced that they have received a contract from the US Army to perform conceptual design and trade analysis on their rotorcraft advanced engine integrated controls system (RAEICS) program. The goal of this program, which will take place over the next two years, is to enable innovative, high performance propulsion capabilities for future vertical lift (FVL) platforms. Specifically, the program is expected to assess innovative engine controls technologies and architectures, as well as explore various approaches to integrate the advanced engine controls system with vehicle systems and subsystems. General Electric has partnered with Sikorsky Aircraft to support the program, also currently supports the Army’s FVL development efforts through multiple programs such as FATE, the future affordable turbine engine program. Harry Nahatis, GE Aviation’s advanced turboshaft programs general manager, said in a statement: "This RAEICS contract will enable GE to offer more innovative approaches to engine control systems for FVL." GE is also working with the army on designing other advanced technology programs, including the advanced variable speed power turbine, autonomous sustainment technology for rotorcraft operations, alternative engine concepts design and analysis programs, as well as the advanced affordable turbine engine project. Headquartered in Evendale, Ohio, GE Aviation is a world-leading provider of jet and turboprop engines, components and integrated systems for commercial, military, business and general aviation aircraft, and ship propulsion applications. GE Aviation has a global service network to support these offerings. It is a subsidiary of General Electric which is one of the world’s largest corporations. Apart from technologies developed through RAEICS and FATE programs, GE invests USD$1.8 billion in advanced technologies, such as 3D aero designs, ceramic matrix composite materials, and additive manufactured components every year. In 2011, Fortune ranked GE the 6th-largest firm in the U.S. as well as the 14th most profitable and for 2012, GE’s brand was valued at an estimated USD$28.8 billion.
