Abstract : The report describes the results of a 13-month study of the feasibility of starting Army aircraft by means of starting systems utilizing a resonant combustor as the basic power source. Starting of both main engines and auxiliary power units (APU) was considered. Alternative starting techniques were assessed and compared with present techniques. The engine and APU starting starting techniques that best utilize the unique advantages of the resonant combustor were prepared to allow assessment of the characteristics and application problems of these systems.
