What is UEET?
Ultra-Efficient Engine Technology Program
The Ultra-Efficient Engine Technology
Program (UEET) was a NASA program which worked to develop and hand off
revolutionary turbine engine propulsion technologies to enable future
generations of vehicles to operate over a wide range of flight speeds.
The Ultra-Efficient Engine Technology Program was known by its abbreviation
UEET. UEET worked together with American companies to enable a new generation of cleaner,
By working together with US companies, NASA still performs research aimed at more
efficient, safe and environmentally friendly propulsion systems for future aircraft
and space vehicles. We are working to reduce fuel burned by 15%. That will
reduce the amount of CO2 that is released into the atmosphere.
We are working to design engines that will have NOx levels reduced by 70%.
The partner companies work with NASA engineers and scientists to plan
and develop many new engine concepts. They work to develop new materials
for engines, new methods of using fuel in the combustors, and use computer simulation
to determine the engines strengths.
