Turbine Truck Engines, Inc. (TTE) is working with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Daytona, Florida campus) with the objective of further development of the Detonation Cycle Gas Turbine Engine technology (earlier post) for heavy-duty highway trucks.
The alliance will take the form of enhanced technology development and testing of the prototype engine built by TTE. The research team will be working on all aspects of the engine including primary and secondary mechanical functionality, electrical, hydraulic, fuel and pneumatic systems.
This development and extensive testing will be conducted in laboratory settings and in real world field tests. This research and testing is phase one of a multi-phase project.
Turbine Truck Engines, Inc., is the exclusive licensee for Alpha Engines Corporation’s Detonation Cycle Gas Turbine Engine'technology for manufacturing heavy-duty highway trucks.
