Orpheus will provide pioneering capability solutions for a broad range of future defence markets.
“In just two years, we have developed two different small engine designs,” said Alex Zino, director future projects, Rolls-Royce Defence.
“The two experimental engines have been designed, manufactured and successfully tested, demonstrating the capability required to deliver a new family of scalable and configurable small engines within these unprecedented timeframes. These assets will be instrumental in informing critical technology developments for our partners, enabling rapid de-risking of new and novel technologies to enhance their military capability.”
