ROCKLEDGE, FL — [May 8, 2020] — Mainstream Engineering Corporation has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Air Force for development of a high-efficiency, turbocharged, diesel engine for use in a variety of heavy-fuel power applications.
Many existing military diesel-powered generators, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), and auxiliary equipment, such as water pumps, use outdated industrial engines that are heavy and less efficient than their modern counterparts. Mainstream has addressed this issue by developing a power-dense engine that employs advanced automotive diesel technology and is capable of withstanding the rigors of military use. Mainstream’s AMD45, a 1.25-L three-cylinder turbodiesel, is specifically designed to fill the gap between the heavy industrial diesels that are currently fielded and larger automotive diesel engines on the market. The size, weight, power, and efficiency of the AMD45 make it a well-suited powerplant for multiple military heavy-fuel engine applications.
