Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) has placed an initial purchase order for multiple engines from Cyclone Power Technologies Inc., valued at approximately $400,000. The work will be performed at Cyclone’s facility in Florida. These initial purchased engines, named the MantaRay, are based on the company’s Mark V engine and patented technology. The MantaRay represents one of several engine models and projects on which Cyclone and Raytheon are collaborating. (Go to http://www.sae.org/mags/sohe/9448 to read more about an engine-development program between these two companies.) “After months of rigorous engine testing, we’re pleased to say that Cyclone and Raytheon are now entering the next phase of our working relationship,” said Harry Schoell, CEO of Cyclone. “We are designing and building engines such as the MantaRay for Raytheon and their customers, and starting to generate revenue from these operations.” The Cyclone engine is referred to as an “all-fuel, clean-tech engine” that can power a variety of applications, from waste energy electric generators and solar thermal systems to cars, trucks, and locomotives.
