Alternative Fuel Technology LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Alternative Fuel Technologies, has been awarded a Phase 1 SBIR contract from the U.S. Army to concept, design, and demonstrate an ultrahigh pressure, intensified fuel-injection system for use with JP-8 fuel. The goal of this Phase 1 project is to demonstrate an injection system that can produce 40 ksi (2750 bar), what the Army believes to be a reasonable projection of what will be needed in the relatively near future. The Army already uses lube oil actuated, intensified fuel injectors on some of its combat vehicle engines, but pressures are limited to less than 30 ksi (2070 bar). A Phase 1 option to this contract may be awarded, which could raise the current contract award to $120,000. Assuming that Phase 1 is successful, the company may be asked to propose a Phase 2 project to further develop the design. A Phase 2 project is typically funded at about $750,000.
