The Advanced Turbine Engine Company (ATEC) is a joint venture between Honeywell and United Technologies Corporation's Pratt & Whitney. In 2006, Honeywell and Pratt & Whitney formed ATEC to participate in the U.S. Army's effort to develop an advanced turboshaft helicopter engine to achieve the aggressive performance goals of a 50% more powerful and 25% more fuel-efficient engine for its Black Hawk and Apache fleets. The HPW3000, ATECT's helicopter engine, is being developed to replace the T700 engine now powering the UH-60 Black Hawk and the AH-64 Apache helicopters.
