Cutting-edge power transmissions for the M88-2-powered Rafale
Building on our long experience with military engines, Hispano-Suiza designs, develops and produces the power transmission system for the Snecma M88-2 engine, and the accessory gearbox for the Rafale multirole fighter built by Dassault Aviation.
This sophisticated assembly, entirely designed, developed and produced by Hispano-Suiza, comprises two main drives:
Engine-mounted accessory drive, which includes the main hydromechanical unit, afterburner hydromechanical unit and lubrication unit.
Aircraft-mounted accessory drive, which drives the power generation equipment.
These two units are connected by a flexible driveshaft operating at very high speed. Fitted with flex-strips, the Hispano-Suiza driveshaft offers unexcelled damage tolerance and fatigue resistance.
