DRDO’s GTRE to partner with HAL for production of dry Kaveri

DRDO’s Gas Turbine and Research Establishment (GRTE) will be associating with Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for the manufacturing of the dry Kaveri engine to be used on India’s Unmanned Stealth bomber program.  

The Engine Division at Koraput, a unit of HAL’s vast network will be manufacturing a dry Kaveri engine when it completes its certification by 2024 and enters production. Dry Kaveri minus its afterburner section was for the first time showcased earlier this year at Aero India 2021 and GTRE has started manufacturing four pre-production dry Kaveri engines that will be used for further flight trials and testing of the engine before it is cleared for production by 2024-25.  

The engine will have a dry thrust of 46 kN and soon test of the engine in the indoor aerospace testbed will commence so that the data can be collected from different parameters on the engine, using an intricate web of sensors that detects even the tiniest vibrations that will help analytical models and engineers in better monitoring and for crucial insights to inform future engine improvements for availability and efficiency.
