Raytheon Orders Heat-Regenerative External Combustion Engine Design


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Cyclone Power Technologies
: 19 February, 2010  (Application Story)
Integrated Defence Systems division of Raytheon places order for 10 Horsepower combustion engine design for various applications running on conventional and Moden Fuel
Cyclone Power Technologies has received a new design work order for its heat-regenerative external combustion engine from Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS).


Pursuant to the work order, Cyclone will be developing preliminary designs, specifications and test parameters on a compact 10HP external combustion engine for use in various power applications. The proposed Cyclone engine would be designed to run on both traditional fuels and an environmentally friendly monopropellant called Moden Fuel, which can combust in the absence of oxygen.

“We see this new project a solid continuation of our working relationship, which we expect to culminate in a formal teaming agreement soon,” stated Harry Schoell, CEO of Cyclone. “We are pleased to be working with Raytheon on the development of some very important projects for the military, homeland security, undersea exploration and other similar industries.”

In October 2009, Cyclone completed its first-phase Independent Research and Development contract for Raytheon IDS, which involved performing certain load-based dynamometer tests on the Company’s Mark II Engine, and also running the engine on Moden Fuel. The results from these tests were reviewed and validated at the time by Raytheon IDS, a business of Raytheon Company.
