The measurement of torque is common practice in all types of aerospace engines and is used to improve safety, pilot control, and engine reliability. Transense SAW sensor technology offers advantages in these applications due to its accuracy over other technologies.

Our sensor system is robust and compact in size and weight. Its ability to measure or compensate for temperature fluctuations, and immunity from background electromagnetic interference, make it the ideal choice.

Based on our sensor performance in harsh mechanical and environmental conditions GE selected Transense SAW sensor technology under licence for the U.S. Army’s Improved Turbine Engine Program (ITEP), which is to replace the GE T700 series engines on all Army Black Hawk and Apache helicopters. The new engine will be used on one or more of the Army’s Future Vertical Lift platforms offering; 50% more power, 25% more fuel efficiency, higher levels of performance at 6,000ft and 35°C (95°F) and 6,000 new engines for the existing helicopter fleet.

Transense SAW sensors are also well suited to the growing UAM Market.
