Microturbo Cougar 022

This single-shaft turbojet was developed as a power plant for small aicraft and RPVs. The 022 version powers the Australain GAF Turana target drone.

The installed engine, which incorporates only the equipement needed for flight, was designed to withstand the high mechanical and thermal stresses improved by accelerated launch, telemetered shutdown and subsequent immersion in sea-water. Equipement for defuelling, refurbishing, refuelling, starting, ground running and pre-flight checkout is all accomodated in an associated servicing rig connected via an umbilical which is disconnected immediatly prior to flight. Starting is accomplished by an air-equipement nozzle integral with the engine impeller shroud, the air supply being controlled from the service rig.
