United Space Alliance Completes Key Research Project for Cyclone Power Technologies

POMPANO BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. (Pink Sheets: CYPW) announced that United Space Alliance (USA), NASA’s prime Space Shuttle contractor, has successfully completed a research project integral to the commercialization of Cyclone’s heat regenerative, modern steam engine. The program was arranged through an award from the Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program (SATOP).

“Through the vast experience, resources and efforts of the engineers at USA, we were able to analyze the thermal cycling effects on our heat exchangers and improve their long-term durability”

The project completed by USA involved studying the metallurgical effects of high temperature thermal cycling on the heat exchangers of Cyclone’s external combustion engine. Super-heated steam up to 1200°F, as well as patented energy recycling exhaust and cooling systems, result in thermal efficiencies of the Cyclone engines exceeding 30% -- far greater than comparable gas-powered internal combustion engines. USA was successful in providing recommendations to improve the durability and performance of this integral component, which Cyclone plans to implement immediately.

“Through the vast experience, resources and efforts of the engineers at USA, we were able to analyze the thermal cycling effects on our heat exchangers and improve their long-term durability,” stated Cyclone CEO, Harry Schoell. “This collaborative project saved us time and money, and we believe, will result in a more robust and dependable commercial product. We are very pleased to have been working with talented people like Rachel Preston in USA’s Materials & Processes Group, and very thankful to Ryan Greenough, director of the Florida SATOP Center, for arranging this program.”

USA is a world leader in space operations with extensive experience in all aspects of the field. Headquartered in Houston, USA has more than 6,200 employees working in Texas, Florida and Alabama. SATOP is made up of an Alliance of more than 45 space companies, universities, colleges, and NASA centers, with the mission to help small businesses apply the technical expertise derived from the US space program.

About Cyclone Power Technologies

Cyclone Power Technologies is the developer of the award-winning Cyclone Engine – an eco-friendly external combustion engine with the power and versatility to run everything from portable electric generators and garden equipment to cars, trucks and locomotives. Invented by company founder and CEO Harry Schoell, the patented Cyclone Engine is a modern steam engine, ingeniously designed to achieve high thermal efficiencies through a compact heat-regenerative process, and to run on virtually any fuel - including bio-diesels, syngas or solar - while emitting fewer greenhouse gases and irritating pollutants into the air. Currently in its late stages of development, the Cyclone Engine was recognized by Popular Science Magazine as the Invention of the Year for 2008, and was presented with the Society of Automotive Engineers’ AEI Tech Award in 2006 and 2008. Additionally, Cyclone was recently named Environmental Business of the Year by the Broward County Environmental Protection Department. For more information, visit www.cyclonepower.com.
