Preparation Underway for Upcoming Trials of the Kaveri Derivative Engine in Russia

The Dry Kaveri, a derivative engine stemming from the Kaveri program, is on the cusp of embarking upon another pivotal phase of critical trials scheduled to take place in Russia early next year. These forthcoming trials are anticipated to constitute the culminating stage in the engine’s developmental trajectory. The Gas Turbine Research Establishment (GTRE) has undertaken the procurement of engine modules from Godrej Aerospace, which will be subsequently assembled and transported to Russia for an exhaustive battery of assessments. These assessments will encompass simulated high altitude trials and evaluations conducted upon a flight test bed.

The principal objective underlying the development of the Kaveri Dry engine is to furnish propulsion capabilities for India’s groundbreaking stealth unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV), commonly known as the Ghatak. The Kaveri Dry engine has already proven its mettle by successfully navigating simulated high altitude tests within the confines of Russia. The next stage entails the seamless integration of the Kaveri Dry engine into a specialized flying test bed (FTB), a modified iteration of the Ilyushin (Il)-76 fixed-wing aircraft, distinguished by its quartet of turbofan engines. During the course of these trials, one of the Il-76’s four engines shall be substituted with the Kaveri Dry engine.

The selected venue for this phase of development is the Gromov Flight Research Institute, situated in proximity to Moscow, Russia. This institution houses the modified IL-76 aircraft, designated for conducting simulated flight tests of the Kaveri Dry engine. These trials hold an indispensable position as a formal and pivotal component within the broader framework of the engine’s developmental process.

GTRE’s preliminary timeline envisaged the completion of all requisite assessments by the year 2024-25, with the ultimate objective of initiating limited series production by 2025-26. The strides made in Russia symbolize a significant milestone in India’s relentless pursuit of advanced engine technology tailored for unmanned combat aerial vehicles. These advancements serve to bring India nearer to the realization of its ambitious objectives within this specialized domain.
