The AE 3007 is powering today's reconnaissance aircraft and tomorrow's unmanned aerial vehicles
The AE 3007 turbofan engine is a high bypass, two shaft engine featuring a wide-chord single-stage low pressure (LP) compressor, 14-stage high pressure (HP) compressor followed by an effusion-cooled annular combustor, two stage high pressure (HP) turbine and a three stage low pressure (LP) turbine.
The AE 3007 turbofan core is derived from the AE 1107C-Liberty engine and is in the 8,000lbf thrust class. It was initially developed to create a turbofan member of the AE common core family for the growing regional jet and medium/large business jet markets, but has subsequently been developed as a growth version for military aircraft applications.
A single AE 3007H engine allows the Northrop Grumman RQ-4A Global Hawk to fly at 65,000 feet while providing near real-time imagery to battlefield commanders for more than 32 hours per mission. The system has already proven itself over the skies of Afghanistan and Iraq.
Two AE 3007A1P engines power the Embraer 145 Special Version aircraft used for intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance missions.
