Abstract
Both military and law enforcement are showing increasing interest in a wider array of Non-Lethal Weapons such as Active Denial Technology (ADT). Such systems require electrical power for their high power millimeter-wave generating RF sources. Currently not available, a compact efficient prime power system is an enabling technology as future ADT systems look towards new, more compact solid state RF sources to reduce overall system size, weight and power. Toyon and its team members propose a Lightweight Efficient Generator (LEG) technology comprised of a heavy fuel, turbocharged, rotary engine employing a direct injection stratified charge combustion process in conjunction with a forced air cooled high power density (HPD) motor/generator and integrated power electronics. Toyon"s unique generator achieves a specific power of 4 hp/lb while the rotary engine is capable of 2 hp/lb. The system will provide 250 kW of peak power with a system weight and efficiency of 250 lbs and 31%.
