DRDO successfully conducts maiden flight test of indigenous power take off shaft 

Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) conducted its maiden successful flight test of Indigenous Power Take Off (PTO) shaft on Light Combat Aircraft (LCA Tejas) Limited Series Production (LSP) - 3 aircraft at Bengaluru.

Key Highlights 

The PTO shaft is indigenously designed and developed by Combat Vehicles Research & Development Establishment (CVRDE), Chennai of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

The PTO shaft, which is a critical component in the aircraft, will support the requirements of future fighter aircraft & their variants and offers competitive cost & reduced time of availability. With this successful test, the DRDO has achieved a greater technological feat by realisation of complex high-speed rotor technology which only few countries have achieved.

The PTO shaft was designed with unique innovative patented ‘Frequency Spanning Technique’ which enables it to negotiate different operating engine speeds. The light weight high speed, lubrication free PTO shaft transmits higher power between aircraft engine gear box and Aircraft Mounted Accessory Gear Box while accommodating misalignments that arise in the drive line.
