Upgrading of MI-8T (MT) Helicopters

 

TECHNICAL PROPOSALS FOR UPGRADING OF MI-8T (MT)

 

Modernization main tasks:

- Equipping of serial helicopter Mi-8MT with new altitude engines TV3-117VМА-SBМ-1V-03 of increased power;
- Providing of day-and-night operation;
- Increase of accuracy in navigation tasks solving;
- Protection from MANPAD and IR guided missiles;
- Upgrade of navigation and radio communication equipment for flying by local air routes;
- Improvement of crew operating conditions.

REPLACEMENT OF POWER UNIT

Improvement of helicopters flying and technical performances during operation in hot climatic conditions, high-altitude take-off areas and high flight altitudes
Upgrade of existing serial engine ТV3-117VМА-SBМ1:
- High rate of reliability and service life
- Decreasing of technical risk
Further increase of reliability and life time rates:
- Life time before first repair and between repairs ................3000 hours, 3000 cycles;
- Specified life...............................................................9000 hours, 9000 cycles;
Growth of security for performing of single-engine flight:
- Introduction of emergency (2.5 min) operation mode of the engine with 2800 h. p.
- Introduction of 30-min power mode (power is equal to power during take-off mode)
Improvement of economic indexes:
- Decrease of operating costs by increase of life time before the first repair and between repairs;
- Recovery of engines flight operability in operational conditions by replacement of main joints and modules;
- Introduction of activities oriented on increase of engine operability;
- Increase of limits for gas temperature allowed degradation on turbine input in the process of life time working-off;
- Preservation of helicopters high flying and technical performances during installation of dust protection and exhaust infra-red suppression systems.
