Project Announcement: Axial Compressor Surface Finish Improvement

The U.S. Navy is partnering with industry and academia to demonstrate a coating to improved axial compressor surface finish, which will reduce erosion and corrosion to the compressor airfoils. By reducing the effects of erosion and corrosion, significantly lower operational costs, improved engine operability, and enhanced readiness will be achieved.
