Engine Test Facility (ETF)

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

The Air Force Arnold Engineering Development Center[HTML_REMOVED]s Engine Test Facility (ETF) test cells are used for development and evaluation testing of propulsion systems for advanced aircraft, missiles, satellites and space vehicles. These propulsion systems include rocket motors, turbojet and turbofan air breathing engines and ramjets.

Ground tests of air breathing engines provide information such as performance, operability and reliability and can help cut development time and the number of flight tests required for manned aircraft or unmanned weapon systems such as cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The tests may involve complete flight type engines or heavier boilerplate versions in which inlets, compressors, combustors, nozzles or other components can be installed for experimental investigation.
