100 Shaft Hp Turbo Shaft.
New Technology Being Used;
Low Cost Miniature Turboprop Engine.
The proposed innovation is a Sidewinder configuration Miniature Turbo prop
Engine. It utilizes a highly-developed gas producer, with a fine lineage of
previously successful ATDI Turbines turbojet engines (since 1987),ATDI’s U.S.
Patents (granted 1998), and low-cost production potential (because it’s rotating
components are derived from the commercial turbo charger/vehicle industry).
Turbines has proven that it’s customers, including the Army, could benefit from
the well-developed turbo charger turbine and compressor component base. The U.S.
and other major countries have cultivated a major dependence on truck
transportation, transitioning from trains, with increasing dependence on
turbocharged diesel power plants. This is the backbone of the U.S.
Transportation System. Turbocharged diesel engines have become the standard
through a wide range of horsepower, resulting in very high savings leverage for
miniature turbines, select super alloys and advanced rotor aerodynamic
