CSA PROPOSES TO DESIGN A ROTO-COMPOUNDED STRATIFIED CHARGE ROTARY ENGINE (RSRE) TO MEET MINI-RPV APPLICATIONS REQUIRED BY THE NAVY. WE WILL FOCUS ON ADVANCED TURBOCHARGING/TURBOCOMPOUNDING TO PROVIDE INCREASED POWER DENSITIES AND WILL DEVELOP A TURBOCHARGING SYSTEM HAVING ENHANCED COMPATIBILITY WITH THE ROTARY ENGINE WHILE STILL PROVIDING THE BOOST REQUIRED FOR INCREASED PERFORMANCE. OUR ROTOCOMPOUNDING SYSTEM WILL UTILIZE A SMALL ROTARY UNIT AS A COMPRESSION EXPANDER COUPLED TO THE OUTPUT OF THE MAIN ROTARY ENGINE. ADVANTAGES OF OUR DESIGN APPROACH CONSIST OF HIGH POWER DENSITY, LOW WEIGHT AND COMPACT SIZE, FUEL ECONOMY, FEWER MOVING PARTS, LOW NOISE AND VIBRATION LEVELS, MULTIFUEL CAPACITY, AND A HIGH DEGREE OF PARTS COMMONALITY. OUR ENGINE WILL BE OPERATIONAL AT TEMPERATURES UP TO -40 DEG F AND CAN BE SIZED TO MEET THE PARAMETERS OF A GIVEN APPLICATION. IT IS LOW RISK AND LOW IN COST DUE TO THE ADVANCED STATE OF ROTARY ENGINE TECHNOLOGY.
