ANALYSIS: US Army's powerful vision for ITEP engine

A 12-year-old competition to define the most important military helicopter engine for perhaps the next half a century has entered an intense, final phase: by January 2019, the US Army plans to select the contractor for its Improved Turbine Engine Programme (ITEP). The ITEP contract will develop and test a new, 3,000shp (2,240kW)-class turboshaft engine as a drop-in replacement after 2025 for more than 1,300 Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawks and more than 600 Boeing AH-64 Apaches in the army's inventory alone.
