GE - Aviation, with responsibility for 60 percent of the F136 program, is developing the core compressor and coupled high-pressure/low-pressure turbine system components, controls and accessories, and the augmentor
The augmentor, also known as an afterburner, which provides a very rapid increase in thrust, was fired successfully to full power during tests conducted at GE test facilities in Cincinnati.
The augmentor tests mark another dramatic and exciting milestone in the development of the F136 engine.
We depend on our supply chain to provide augmentor
ducts, and we look forward to working with Ducommun and adding their expertise to the F135.
Woodward will supply the F135 augmentor
spray bar manifold assembly to Pratt & Whitney in East Hartford, Connecticut.
Payloads include a Thales Optronics (formerly Vinten) infrared countermeasures pod, radar simulators and plume generators as well as passive radar signature augmentors
When electronic substitutes or electronic augmentors
are there, then travel - pleasure travel - will have new competition.
The payload may consist of sensors operating over a broad portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, various jammers and target augmentors
, as well as less-benign cargoes such as high explosives.
