The Rolls-Royce EJ200 jet engine was designed with one purpose, to sit in a Eurofighter Typhoon fighter plane, it was not designed to be used in a jet car. The jet needs to think it is sitting in a Typhoon and recieving the inputs it would expect from the aircraft. These inputs are the sensor values indicatiing of health the various aircraft systems, whether the aircraft is in flight or on the ground and the pilots controls.
BloodhoundSSC is very honoured to have Rolls-Royce as a sponsor and now proudly displays their logo on the side of the car. Cisco BHTV was at the announcement and there when the EJ200 jet engine was tested with BloodhoundSSC's control system. Engineer Joe Holdsworth explains
