AXcess News: High-Efficiency Aviation Engine Debuts in Denver

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - August 23, 2010) -  Axial Vector Energy Corp. (PINKSHEETS: AXVC) is set to debut its latest high-efficiency aviation engine at the AUVSI Unmanned Systems North America show in Denver on Tuesday. The Company says its M2P engine can achieve operating efficiencies of 12% gain and can burn standard fuel, making it more cost effective as well.

Axial Vector Chairman Sam Higgins called his company's latest development engine development a "breakthrough technology" in UAV drivers that AXVC's Chief Engineer Douglas Hahn explained as being developed using ceramic parts that cut down on engine friction which thereby achieved its remarkable gain in fuel efficiency.

"The new MP2 cycle adds an efficiency gain of 12% in thermal efficiency that translates to longest time aloft per gallon in the industry," said Hahn.

Hahn also said that due to the use of ceramic components the M2P ran cooler and didn't require a large cooling system and hence allow a major weight reduction and therefore greater fuel efficiency. Hahn also said the M2P actually ran more efficiently at higher temperatures. "In a conventional metallic engine, much of the energy released from the fuel must be dissipated as waste heat in order to prevent a meltdown of the metallic parts," Hahn explained.

Higgins indicated that the government was showing strong interest in Axial Vector's ceramic, light-weight, fuel efficient engine though he was quick to point out that many commercial applications made it a strong candidate for non-governmental markets. The fact that the M2P runs on heavier fuels as opposed to traditional gasoline extends the applications to a broader marketplace, Higgins outlined.

Axial Vector will be displaying its M2P Cycle engine Tuesday through Friday at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, which is open to the general public. The AUVSI Unmanned Systems North America show is the world's largest unmanned systems exhibit.
