WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – The Air Force Research Laboratory Aerospace Systems Directorate’s (AFRL/RQ) is using Educational Partnership Agreements (EPAs) as important tools in the Aerospace Propulsion Outreach Program (APOP).
The program, referred to as APOP, is a directorate science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) initiative that funds year-long undergraduate engineer capstone programs across the country that focus on gas turbine engine projects. APOP has been in place for seven years.
This year the program has signed EPAs with eight universities in order to loan each school a Jetcat P90 turbojet engine. The Jetcat P90 is a turbojet designed and marketed to the model aircraft market. While Jetcats are not optimized for military use, at ~$100 per lb of thrust, they are a cost-effective development testbed or low-cost turbojet alternative.
