The J47 was developed by the General Electric Company from the earlier J35 engine and was first flight-tested in May 1948 as a replacement for the J35 used in the North American XF-86 "Sabre".
General Electric Company (GE) was incorporated in 1892, when it acquired the assets of The Edison General Electric Company, founded by Thomas Alva Edison, and two other electric companies.
In 1903, GE succeeded in installing the world's largest steam turbine generator in Chicago to generate electric power to replace a reciprocating engine that was ten times its size.

The North American Aviation XF-108 Rapier was intended to be a long-range Mach 3 air defense interceptor that relied on some of the technologies North American developed for the XB-70 Valkyrie experimental bomber.
The F-108 was fitted with a cranked arrow delta wing and was to be powered by two General Electric J93 30,000 pounds force (133 kN) turbojet engines (six of which were used on the XB-70).
Later combat experience in Vietnam led to the addition of the General Electric 20 mm Vulcan cannon to the F-4.
