GE T700 and T58

Turboshaft Engines by General Electric.

The Vector Aerospace T700 and T58 upgrade was implemented by Yanos Aerospace to allow for the testing of several larger variants of the T700 (-8x).  The entire dynamometer and test bed were replaced at the same time as the DAS upgrade to accommodate faster data rates and full FADEC capability.

The interface to the existing facility systems (shared water, etc.) and the Kahn dynamometer with test bed was included in the upgrade as well.  The test cell upgrade was passing off T58 production engines 2 weeks ahead of schedule.
