Transense Technologies Plc (AIM: TRT), the provider of sensor systems for the transportation, automotive, avionic and industrial markets, is pleased to announce that their licensee GE Aviation (GE) T901-GE-900 engine has been selected by the U.S. Army for the Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) phase of the Improved Turbine Engine Program (ITEP), the U.S. Army's endeavor to re-engine its Boeing AH-64 Apaches and Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawks. The T901 engine incorporates a Transense Technologies Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) sensor.
The US Army intends to replace the more than 6,000 engines installed in their current fleet of these two aircraft; the wider market for the T901 includes replacement engines for these aircraft in military forces outside of the USA as well as other military and commercial medium sized vertical take-off aircraft opportunities globally.
Transense's Graham Storey stated, "We are very proud of the involvement of Transense's SAW technology in this engine and look forward to working with GE in the future".
GE will pay a perpetual sales royalty to the Company in respect of each unit using the technology, under the license agreement previously announced by the Company in July 2016 and March 2017.
