SONEX COMBUSTION PROCESSES
Sonex Research, Inc., a small business located in
Annapolis, Maryland, is developing and commercializing a patented
proprietary technology, known as the
Sonex Combustion System (SCS),
which improves the combustion of fuel in internal combustion engines.
SCS achieves in-cylinder control of ignition and combustion through
using patented combustion chamber designs. The
combustion chamber is defined by embodiments located in the piston in
four-stroke direct injected
engines and in the cylinder head in two-stroke spark-ignited (SI)
SCS designs reduce
fuel consumption and emissions, and permit adapted gasoline engines to
run on safer diesel-type, kerosene-based,
“heavy fuels” in military and commercial
applications requiring lightweight engines and safe handling/storage of
fuel, such as in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
Patented SCS HFE technology is currently in use under license from Sonex in the HFE version of the ScanEagle UAV produced by Insitu, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company. SCS HFE technology is also licensed to QinetiQ North America, Inc. for use in electrical power units such as generators.
Our multi-fuel, lean
burn Sonex Controlled Auto Ignition (SCAI) piston based technology in
Direct Injected (DI) engines achieves:
