As part of GE Aviation’s pursuit to develop technologies for more sustainable commercial flight, the jet engine maker is partnering with NASA to research advanced engine cores for single-aisle aircraft. As part of NASA’s Hybrid Thermally Efficient Core (HyTEC) project, GE Aviation has been awarded multiple cost-share contracts for engine core development valued at more than $20 million when including both NASA and GE investments. Plans are to ground test a new compact engine core by the mid-2020s. GE Aviation will test and mature compact jet engine core designs, including compressor, combustor and high-pressure turbine technologies to improve thermal efficiency.
