F119 Engine:Vectored Thrust United Technologies Corp. subsidiary Pratt and Whitney Aircraft Group in Hartford, CT received a $56.7 firm-fixed-price and cost-plus fixed-fee contract modification. This undefinitized contractual action will support the F119 jet engine, Lot 6. Each F-22A Raptor carries two of these engines, whose ability to put out extremely high thrust without afterburner is what gives the aircraft its “supercruise” capability of staying above Mach 1 for prolonged periods. The F119’s vectored thrust capabilities, meanwhile, give the Raptor new levels of maneuverability. Work will be complete by March 2006. The Headquarters Aeronautical Systems Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH issued the contract. (FA8611-05-C-2851/P00003). Pratt & Whitney delivered the 200th F119 engine to the USAF in mid-December 2005, just slightly more than 2 years after delivering the 100th engine.
