The first year of development of an advanced unique gas turbine engine has been completed. Mechanical shakedown, through 100% speed, was accomplished with minimum failure damage to hardware. Design changes corrected problems encountered. Significant numbers of ceramic components were engine tested. The value of a flexible electronic control system, a parallel regenerator rig program, and ceramic component proof testing has been demonstrated.

Critical test measurements, available computer models, and the totality of the engine environment were shown to be vital ingredients of the development process.
