Honeywell To Provide Power for USAF E-10A

T55 engine, hooked up to six 180 kVA generators, will power aircraft systems and radars

Honeywell has announced that it has been selected by The Boeing Company to supply the Supplemental Electrical Power System (SEPS) for the U.S. Air Force E-10A aircraft.

"We will use our proven T55-GA-715A turboshaft engine and a Honeywell designed gearbox that mounts six Hamilton-Sundstrand 180 kVA generators and controls to provide the electrical power for the new network centric radars that will be used on this aircraft," said Nasos Karras, Vice President, Honeywell Helicopter and Military Engine business.  "The system supplies approximately one megawatt of power up to altitudes of 41,000 feet and we are also supplying the heat exchangers for cooling the entire power system during operation."

The SEPS will supply electrical power for the new Multi Platform-Radar Technology Insertion Program radar (MP-RTIP) and the Battle Management Command and Control (BMC2) system to be installed on the E-10A.  The Boeing 767-400 aircraft includes radar and communications systems that provide near real time images over a wide area of the battlefield.  It is part of the USAF MC2A (Multi-sensor Command and Control Constellation) network centric warfare concept.

Boeing is responsible for airframe and systems modifications including SEPS integration on a team headed by Northrop-Grumman who will supply the aircraft system to the U. S. Air Force.
