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 non-exclusive 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.
