Phase I Amount
At the end of Phase I, ABI will deliver a working "subscale" power module which runs on diesel fuel and has an output of approximately 25 horsepower at 3600 RPM. The overall size, exclusive of fuel pump, cooling, and 011 tank, will be approximately the size and shape of a roll of kitchen paper towels, about 15 cm diameter and less than 40 cm long, and less that 20 lbs. weight. Phase II will develop a full-scale 250 horsepower engine which weighs less than 250 lbs. and is configured for use in aerial vehicles.

The major benefits of this design are simplicity, light weight, and the ability to run on various fuels. It is broadly applicable to replace gasoline engines in a variety of military and civilian applications, ranging from chain saws to vehicle Propulsion.
