Rolls-Royce selects Hamilton Sundstrand as exclusive provider for new small gas turbine FADEC

Houston, Texas -- Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has selected Hamilton Sundstrand as the exclusive provider for a new small gas turbine FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control) system. The FADEC is being developed for use on Rolls-Royce engines under 2000 shaft horsepower (shp).

Ken Roberts, President of the Rolls-Royce Helicopter Engine business, said: "This new FADEC will provide our customers with significant benefits, offering a state-of-the-art, flexible and affordable control system for both helicopter and fixed-wing applications.  Teaming with Hamilton Sundstrand, a partner with proven and strong core competencies in advanced control systems, ensures we are well placed to meet the needs of a broad range of small engine customers during the coming decades."

Steve Peery, Vice President of Hamilton Sundstrand's Engine Systems business, said:  "We are eager to begin work on this next-generation FADEC system in this long-term partnership with Rolls-Royce. This FADEC family will be configured for affordability and adaptability, offering differentiation to customers in a growing business segment."

Rolls-Royce and Hamilton Sundstrand are working together to develop a flexible FADEC design that can be modified to fit multiple Rolls-Royce engines under 2000 shp.  This new control system is being designed to meet all applicable civil and military requirements.

Rolls-Royce was awarded a contract by the U.S. Army in October of 2009 to develop a new dual channel FADEC for the Kiowa Warrior helicopter.  Rolls-Royce will apply the new FADEC being developed with Hamilton Sundstrand to meet this requirement.
