Augmenting Helicopter Takeoff Power by Ramjets

Augmenting Helicopter Takeoff Power by Ramjets The problem of supplying additional power to a helicopter rotor for takeoff or hovering under overload, hotday or altitude conditions is discussed briefly, and the boost system requirements are defined qualitatively. The Mirquardt Aircraft Co. is in process of developing a novel ramjet engine to meet these requirements under the sponsorship of the United States Air Force. The progress to date is reviewed, and the eventual application of this engine is discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The problem of supplying additional power to a helicopter rotor for takeoff or hovering under overload, hotday or altitude conditions is discussed briefly, and the boost system requirements are defined qualitatively. The Mirquardt Aircraft Co. is in process of developing a novel ramjet engine to meet these requirements under the sponsorship of the United States Air Force. The progress to date is reviewed, and the eventual application of this engine is discussed.
