Cyclone Power Technologiesí Receives Fourth U.S. Patent for its Green Engine

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Pompano Beach, FL -- Cyclone Power Technologies (Pink Sheets: CYPW) announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued a Notice of Patent Allowance on the reversing and timing control mechanism of the Company’s heat regenerative external combustion engine.

The patented reversing and timing control component, comprised of a uniquely designed cam mechanism, serves to reverse the direction of the piston rotation in Cyclone’s high performance steam engine. This unique feature in part eliminates the need for a transmission in automotive applications, as the engine itself is capable of operating in reverse. In connection with the engine’s patented valve mechanisms, the timing controls also allow the engine to self-start, thus eliminating the need for a starter motor, and change the valve duration to increase the engine’s efficiency.

“We are pleased to receive patent protection on not just our engine, but many of the important sub-components that make it such a unique and important invention,” stated Harry Schoell, Cyclone’s CEO and inventor of the engine. “We believe that many of these patented sub-components have commercial value as stand-alone products; and therefore, we believe our continuing investment in these patents can help us diversify our future revenue streams, assure future profitability, and build long term shareholder value.”

The Company received its first patent in the United States on the Cyclone Engine in 2006, and then on the engine’s proprietary combustion chamber in 2008 and its valve timing mechanism in March 2010. In February 2010, the European Union issued a patent on the engine system, which marked the Company’s sixth international patent. The Company received patent protection for its engine in Korea, China, Russia, South Africa and Australia in 2009.

Corporate Profile

Cyclone Power Technologies is the developer of the award-winning Cyclone Engine – an eco-friendly external combustion engine with the power and versatility to run everything from portable electric generators and garden equipment to cars, trucks and locomotives. Invented by company founder and CEO Harry Schoell, the patented Cyclone Engine is a modern day steam engine, ingeniously designed to achieve high thermal efficiencies through a compact heat-regenerative process, and to run on virtually any fuel - including bio-diesels, syngas or solar - while emitting fewer greenhouse gases and irritating pollutants into the air. Currently in its late stages of development, the Cyclone Engine was recognized by Popular Science Magazine as the Invention of the Year for 2008, and was presented with the Society of Automotive Engineers’ AEI Tech Award in 2006 and 2008. Additionally, Cyclone was recently named Environmental Business of the Year by the Broward County Environmental Protection Department. For more information, visit
