An advanced technology small gas turbine program is being sponsored by the U.S. Army to complete the design, fabrication, and test of the T-100 Multipurpose Small Power Unit (MPSPU).

This paper describes the basic design features and current development status of the T-100. This small gas turbine power unit is designed for airborne, vehicular, and ground auxiliary power applications at low cost.

The T-100 design incorporates the most current aerothermodynamic and structural component technologies with extensive small turbomachinery and combustor experience gained from a similar class gas turbine two decades ago.

The T-100 design, fabrication, and component rig testing of the Inlet Protection System (IPS) compressor, combustor and turbine have been successfully completed. Engine testing is now in progress on the 50 HP (37.4 kw) rated unit.
