The MCM ITP (Materials and Components for Missiles, Innovation and Technology Partnership) is a UK MoD and DGA sponsored research fund open to all Anglo-French companies and Academic Institutions.

Domain 5: Air Breathing Propulsion

Domain lead: Jean Paul Lopez (Safran Power Units)

The Air-Breathing Propulsion Domain of the MCM ITP (Domain 5) considers materials, technologies and concepts applicable to turbojets, turbofans, turboprops and hybrid engines based on turbojets.

Note: At this stage, the domain excludes technologies applicable to ramjets.

This domain has been split into five key research themes:

  • Reduce fuel consumption.
  • Enlarge flight envelope.
  • Disposable engines.
  • Disruptive Turbo Jet Engine architectures.
  • Improved engine/aircraft integration.
