This paper describes a test program designed to assess the suitability of a TF40-based gas turbine genset for use in the Advanced Hull Form Inshore Demonstrator (AHFID). An overall description of the test program and its objectives is given. Test results are presented. The relevance of the test to the greater program goal of demonstrating the viability of rimdriven propulsion technology is discussed. The genset demonstration test was successfully completed in 2003. The package performed as designed and met all test objectives.
