  • Air Force Seeks Industry Input to Enhance Resilience at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst

    The Air Force issued a request for information (RFI), solicitation number W912DY-18-T-PPA1 to conduct market research and determine the feasibility of implementing various energy generation technologies at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JB MDL) in New Jersey. Through this RFI, the Air Force seeks to identify continuously available,
  • Innovating compressor blade inspection

    Blade defects decrease engine efficiency and power, while increasing fuel burn (specific fuel consumption) and exhaust gas temperature (EGT) - resulting in higher maintenance costs, and decreased aircraft availability. Additionally, defective compressor blades can pose a safety threat if not replaced in a timely manner. While researching areas for increased aircraft optimization, Air Force Operational Energy found that cost-effective and reliable blade inspection ensures engines are performing optimally, and is paramount to maintaining aircraft readiness.
