POMPANO BEACH, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Cyclone Power Technologies (Pink Sheets: CYPW) has received a new design work order for its heat-regenerative external combustion engine from Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS).
“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.”
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.
Cyclone Power Technologies is the developer of the award-winning Cyclone Engine – an eco-friendly external combustion engine with the power and versatility to run everything from portable electric generators and garden equipment to cars, trucks and locomotives. Invented by company founder and CEO Harry Schoell, the patented Cyclone Engine is a modern day steam engine, ingeniously designed to achieve high thermal efficiencies through a compact heat-regenerative process, and to run on virtually any fuel - including bio-diesels, syngas or solar - while emitting fewer greenhouse gases and irritating pollutants into the air. Currently in its late stages of development, the Cyclone Engine was recognized by Popular Science Magazine as the Invention of the Year for 2008, and was presented with the Society of Automotive Engineers’ AEI Tech Award in 2006 and 2008. Additionally, Cyclone was recently named Environmental Business of the Year by the Broward County Environmental Protection Department. For more information, visit www.cyclonepower.com.
