How Rolls-Royce is powering the Tempest fighter jet

The propulsion design of the Tempest fighter jet will be aerodynamically matched to the air platform, optimising overall performance, range and payload capability.

Rolls-Royce’s optimised Thermal Management System will utilise the gas-turbine as a heat 'sink' to recycle thermal energy around the platform. This removes the need for overboard venting and improves overall system efficiency.

Increased electrical power generation capability coupled with an intelligent power management system will meet the growing demand for air vehicle electrical power. This integrated power approach reduces the number of energy exchanges, maximising the potential of the gas-turbine as the primary power source.
