Rolls-Royce lands research contract

September 25, 2007
The U.S. Air Force has awarded Rolls-Royce a contract valued at $19.6 million to develop high-temperature, high-pressure ratio compressor technologies for jet engines.

The work, which will be conducted at the British company's research unit on the west side, will focus on engine architecture for planes used in intelligence, surveillance and other sub-sonic missions.

The contract comes a month after Rolls-Royce received a $296 million Air Force contract to develop technology to allow engines to operate in both high thrust and loiter modes in order to burn less fuel.
