Embry-Riddle University to Provide Test Facilities to Turbine Truck Engines, Inc.

DELAND, Fla. -- Turbine Truck Engines, Inc. (TTE) (OTCBB:TTEG) has announced that Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has granted TTE complete access to the Gas Turbine Research Laboratory (GTRL) test facilities at the University.

The GTRL in the Aerospace Engineering Department of Embry-Riddle University has opened its doors to TTE and has offered to help by providing state of the art Turbine test equipment, duration test facilities, and personnel to help commercialize a 540hp version of the Detonation Cycle Gas Turbine Engine (DCGT) for drive shaft applications. The Testing is a necessary phase in the final development of the DCGT as it approaches the production phase. These tests will provide TTE with the data necessary for the engineered prototype for a production engine.

The GTRL has extensive expertise in gas turbine engines and in modeling of complex geometries in CATIA and external redesign. The GTRL recently completed a 3D model of the DCGT prototype and partially redesigned a potential 540hp version as shown on the corporation's website The re-design was performed in collaboration with TTE.

The GTRL proposes to further collaborate with TTE and the inventor, Mr. Robert Scragg, President of Alpha Engines Corp. "We are very fortunate to have Embry-Riddle just down the street in Daytona," said Michael Rouse. "We have developed a great relationship over the past couple of years with the GTRL headed by Dr. Magdy Attia. He has been exemplary in their cad designs. They have now offered us total access to their testing facilities and personnel at cost; this was an unexpected surprise. TTE will save time and countless thousands of dollars. Harold Simmons, principal engineer for the Gas Turbine Technology Center from Southwest Research Institute, said he would be glad to come to Daytona to certify any of our tests."
