14 UAV Benefits of Air-Assisted DI Benefits of Air-Assisted Direct Injected Engines for UAV’s:Reliable cold startSmooth transient operation.Multi-fuel capability (gas, JP5/8, diesel)Lower weight & vibration than diesel.Lower cost & consumption than turbineEngine monitoring via advanced EMS.
15 Military Applications Utilizing Orbital DI Technology (Currently in the public domain)
16 Technology Used by US Navy Mercury 3.0L V6 2-Stroke Outboard with Orbital’s air-assisted direct injection. JP5/JP8 operation and EPA emission compliant. Available on GSA since
17 Technology under evaluation by UK MoD EP Barrus has designed, developed and delivered a multi fuel 50hp outboard trial engine under license for the UK MoD, capable of running on gasoline, JP5, JP8 and diesel. Has also been evaluated by US Navy and US Marines.
