Our customer’s unmanned air vehicle (UAV) is an air or ground-launched decoy, used to saturate and deceive enemy air defenses during strike aircraft operations. The UAV is powered by a small turbojet engine capable of operating at altitudes up to 30,000’ and speeds up to Mach 0.8. Cascon leveraged its experience with electric drive motors and compliance with strict military requirements to arrive at a solution for this mission-critical application.
This unique design was developed to replace and improve an existing military grade pump used in the ITALD turbine engine fuel supply and control system. The pump’s integrated flow meter provides data to the vehicle digital electronic engine control (DEC) for smooth turbine acceleration and deceleration.
