Abstract:

THE NAVY DESIRES TO ELIMINATE GASOLINE TO FUEL REMOTELY PILOTED VEHICLES BECAUSE OF GASOLINE'S LOW FLASH POINT AND RELATIVE UNAVAILABILITY ABOARD SHIPS. THE NAVY REQUIRES ENGINES IN THE 25 TO 35 BHP RANGE, WEIGHING LESS THAN 20 POUNDS, THAT ARE FUELED BY JP-5 AND/OR DIESEL FUEL, THAT WILL START AND OPERATE RELIABLY AT -40 DEG. F AND THAT HAVE REASONABLE FUEL CONSUMPTION CHARACTERISTICS UNDER BOTH CRUISE AND LOITER CONDITIONS. CUYUNA ENGINE COMPANY PROPOSES TO PERFORM RESEARCH: 1. TO EXPLORE THE VARIOUS ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES TO DEVELOPING A COMBUSTION PROCESS AND A FUEL SYSTEM FOR SUCH AN ENGINE; AND 2. TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE VARIOUS APPROACHES; AND 3. TO MAKE A PRELIMINARY DECISION ON THE MOST VIABLE DESIGN APPROACH, AFTER REVIEWING THE ALTERNATIVES WITH THE NAVY; AND 4. TO DEVELOP PRELIMINARY DATA THROUGH ACTUAL TESTS OF PROTOTYPE SYSTEMS TO VERIFY THE DESIGN APPROACH SELECTED; AND 5. TO DEVELOP A PHASE II FULL SCALE DESIGN, DEVELOPMENT AND TEST PLAN.
