Award List:

Novel Propulsion Using Humphrey Cycle or Other Concepts

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$98,992.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator:
Ken Spence, President
Abstract:
We propose an engine concept, which we call a Cart-Engine, which embodies both a thermodynamic cycle innovation and a mechanical innovation that can achieve exceptional efficiency, low mechanical vibration, and can burn multiple fuels. In addition, the manner in which the Cart-Engine functions… More
