Cyclone Power Technologies Adds Distinguished NASA Engineer to Advisory Team

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - October 1, 2007) - Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CYPW) announced today that Jerry A. Peoples, a retired NASA engineer with over 30 years service in the government's most elite scientific divisions, has joined the Cyclone team as a Senior Technology Consultant and member of the company's Board of Advisors.

Mr. Peoples' work with NASA spans over 30 years. Most recently, after the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, Mr. Peoples was assigned to the Solid Motor Redesign Team, where he made major contributions to the design, fabrication and testing of the Double O-ring Interference Joint, which solved the O-ring burn problem.

Mr. Peoples' work at NASA also included participation on a governmental energy task force studying solar heating and cooling, ocean thermal electric energy conversion, and the Rankine Cycle as an alternative to the internal combustion engine. On this last subject, he published over 12 research papers on the design and operation of the modern steam-powered automobile.

Early in his career, Mr. Peoples served at the Marshall Space Flight Center as project engineer responsible for thermal control systems for orbiting spacecraft such as the Hubble Telescope, HEAO-1, and Gravity Probe B. Prior to that, he worked at the Wright Patterson Air Development Center on the F-105 aircraft.

"We are honored to have Jerry join our advisory team, as I greatly respect and value his experience and knowledge," stated Cyclone's CEO, Harry Schoell. "With people like Jerry working with us, I am convinced we can make great strides towards the full commercialization of our engine technology."


Cyclone holds the U.S. patent, international patent applications, and exclusive commercial rights to the Green Revolution Engine™, an environmentally friendly and highly efficient external combustion, heat-regenerative engine. Developed by Cyclone's President and CEO, Harry Schoell, the Cyclone engine regenerates (or recycles) its heat, which allows it to run cleaner, cooler and more efficiently than traditional internal combustion engines. The Green Revolution Engine is capable of running on any liquid or gaseous fuel, including ethanol, bio-diesel and propane. The company also recently filed a patent application for its Waste Heat Engine, a low-pressure engine capable of running on heat emitted from external sources, including the waste exhaust of a power generator or renewable solar power. Both these engines are lubricated with de-ionized water instead of motor oil, and by eliminating many subsystems like oil pumps, radiators, catalytic converters and fuel injectors, the Cyclone engines are expected to cost less to manufacture, operate and maintain. The Green Revolution Engine in particular is highly scalable and sufficiently powerful for applications ranging from lawn equipment and small home generators, large stand-alone generators, to cars, trucks, buses, RVs, boats and ships, as well as earth-moving equipment and locomotives.
