A timely review of selected examples of research in aeropropulsion being sponsored by the U. S. Army covering the full spectrum of relevant topics is given. The discussion in this paper is focussed on aerodynamic components, mechanical elements and materials with emphasis on those fundamental issues which strongly influence engine reliability and life-cycle cost, particularly reduced fuel consumption. Specific research investigations on compressors, combustors, turbines, mechanical components, materials and cycle analysis are described and new desired research initiatives are elaborated. The reader can acquire a rather complete overview of Army activities related to small gas turbine engines from this paper.
