NASA Awards Propulsion Research Contracts To Five Firms

WASHINGTON -- NASA has awarded contracts to five companies to provide
air-breathing engine technologies in support of aerospace propulsion
research and technology development activities at the agency's Glenn
Research Center in Cleveland.

Each of the five indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts
provide for fixed price, cost share and cost reimbursement
competitive tasks with a maximum value of $125 million over the next
five years.

The companies selected are GE Aviation of Cincinnati; Honeywell of
Phoenix; United Technologies Corporation, Pratt & Whitney Military
Engines of East Hartford, Conn.; Rolls-Royce, North American
Technologies, Inc. Liberty Works of Indianapolis; and Williams
International of Walled Lake, Mich.

The selected companies will perform work in 10 disciplines: concept
development and systems studies, high power density engine
turbomachinery, advanced combustors and alternative fuels, low noise
propulsion technologies, inlets and nozzles, variable and hybrid
engine systems, integrated component technology demonstrations,
engine icing, materials and structures, and instrumentation, controls
and communication.

The work will provide for the development and demonstration of
advanced turbine engine technologies to enhance aviation safety and
reduce aircraft emissions, noise and fuel burning.
