Research Institution
"The goal of this proposed Navy SBIR project is to optimize, analyze, design, build and test a high efficiency 2 cycle ceramic engine that will run on JP-5 fuel and weigh less than 10 ounces while burning less than 1.0 lbs of fuel per hour. The engine willincorporate a ceramic piston, cylinder, and head to permit high temperature operation without cooling to effectively burn this heavy fuel. In addition the ceramics will virtually eliminate the need for lubricants to be mixed in the fuel as is typicalwith commercially available 2 cycle motors. Commercial markets include application in SWARM UAV's, small gas powered landscaping tools, model airplane industry, go-carts and mini-bikes."
