The Sundstrand Power Systems T-62T-40-7 Gas Turbine Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) was adapted from an aircraft-borne APU to a marine application on the U.S. Navy’s Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC). Although the LCAC APU experienced less operating time than its aircraft version, the environmental conditions that exist cause unusual wear and component failures. Component and procedural improvements have been developed to extend the reliability of the T-62T-40-7 on board the LCAC.
