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.
