Platforms International To Use LPE Engines in ARC System.
MoJAVE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 12, 1998--Platforms International Corp., a major developer of unmanned systems, Monday announced a strategic alliance with LPE LPE Liquid Phase Epitaxy
LPE Linear Polyethylene
LPE Low Probability (of) Exploitation
LPE Layout Parameter Extraction (semiconductor circuit design and simulation)
LPE Lymphocytic-Plasmacytic Enteritis Corp. in further development of Platform International's proprietary Airborne Relay Communications (ARC) Systems.
The ARC System includes state-of-the-art high altitude Conventionally, an altitude above 10,000 meters (33,000 feet). See also altitude. aircraft, a command and control ground station, and software developed by PLFM's System Software Development Facility.
LPE Corp. will make the special high-altitude engines required for operation of the three ARC system aircraft, which will rotate operations every 40 hours to provide year-round uninterrupted service.
According to according to
1. As stated or indicated by; on the authority of: according to historians.
2. In keeping with: according to instructions.
3. Howard Foote, PLFM PLFM Private Line Forecast Model (Sprint) president and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. , LPE is an experienced producer of engines with high altitude variants and also makes full drive trains for high altitude aircraft.
LPE will therefore be able to deliver a fully integrated propulsion system Noun 1. propulsion system - a system that provides a propelling or driving force
system - instrumentality that combines interrelated interacting artifacts designed to work as a coherent entity; "he bought a new stereo system"; "the system consists of a motor and a to meet the performance requirements for ARC aircraft; keeping a 1000 lb. payload airborne for over 40 hours. Moreover, LPE engines -- designed by Darus Zehrbach, LPE president -- cost only one-third the price of alternative engines.
ARC aircraft will use LPE's 196 cubic inch 4 cylinder engine derated to 115 hp from the 225 hp capability of some design variants. Full power can be maintained to over 65,000 feet. The liquid-cooled compound-staged turbocharged engine uses dual electronic ignition and fuel injection, internal ceramic coatings, and a roller valve train.
LPE's unusual engine bed mount enables quick engine replacement when necessary, assuring uninterrupted service. The mean time between overhauls (TBO TBO Tampa Bay Online

The jointly-produced ARC System will cut costs and improve system performance in widely diverse areas of the economy through use of a simpler, more elegant design. ARC's streamlined design will reduce the cost of equipment and maintenance and enable universal system coverage to replace existing regional coverages.
Areas of the economy that will be directly affected include telecommunications, drug interdiction and other law enforcement, early warning weather surveillance, agriculture, forest fire fighting, oil and mineral exploration, and a long list of military applications.
