United Engine Corporation will demonstrate its developments at the 12th International Exhibition Hydroaviasalon-2018.
“UEC enterprises produce a wide range of aviation engines for sea-based and ship-based aircraft, as well as marine engine packages. Some of them will be represented at Hydroaviasalon-2018 in full size”, representatives of UEC noted.
In particular, the centerpiece of the exhibition will be the RD-33MK, a turbofan jet engine, for the MiG-29K and the MiG-29KUB, carrier-based multirole fighters, and for the most advanced multipurpose MiG-35. The new engine differs from the basic version of the RD-33 with an increased power level, which makes it possible to carry out combat missions in a hot climate and take off from an aircraft carrier without using a catapult. Life and performance characteristics of the engine were significantly improved due the introduction of a modern FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control) system. Thanks to adapting the engine to use at sea, it can be operated in conditions of high humidity and air salinity.
Moreover, visitors of the exposition will be able to familiarize themselves with the small-sized two-circuit turboshaft engine TRDD-50AT for subsonic UAVs. The state-of-the-art engine is characterized by a high specific thrust of frontal area, which exceeds foreign analogues by 20-30%. At the same time, the engine is distinguished by high fuel efficiency, a modern control system and a reliable quick start. The TRDD-50AT tolerates long-term storage and remains operational even if affected by overloads, shock and heat waves.
Currently, a participation plan for United Engine Corporation in being developed.
Engine builders will demonstrate their products in Pavilion A. The exposition can be familiarized with during the exhibition work hours on September 6-9, 2018.
