Raytheon IDS Places Engines Order from Cyclone Power Technologies

Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, a business of Raytheon Company, has placed an initial purchase order for multiple engines from Cyclone Power Technologies, a deal worth approximately $400,000.

Named MantaRay, the initial purchased engines 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.

“After months of rigorous engine testing, we’re pleased to say that Cyclone and Raytheon are now entering the next phase of our working relationship,” Cyclone CEO Harry Schoell said. “We are designing and building engines such as the MantaRay for Raytheon and their customers, and starting to generate revenue from these operations. We’re very pleased to be working alongside such a well established and respected company and look forward to building our relations going forward.”

The work will be performed at Cyclone’s Florida-based facility.

    Why don’t they make it possible for private people to place orders for the same engine which Raytheon has ordered? This would reduce the cost to people like myself who really, really, want one of these engines.

    I’m tired of waiting for this engine to make it to market. Honestly, what is it going to take to get this engine to market? Do I have to raid Rathethons warhouse or what? Good Lord! Please…someone…anyone, just get this thing out there for us to buy!
