Established in 1988, Electro-Mechanical Associates (EMA) specializes in research programs on spark and compression ignition engines providing innovative, development, and testing of prototype engine technologies. During normal operation, military vehicles and generators often do not operate at peak efficiency. During design analysis, the EMA retrofit kit under development reduced fuel consumption up to 15% at moderate loads with larger improvements at light loads and demonstrated potential increases in engine power over 5%. This patented technology builds upon variable value timing that is currently utilized in gasoline engines but has yet to be applied to diesel/compression ignition engines. Current development is focused on the Marine Corps Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement (MTVR) program. Expansion into other Program Offices that operate on diesel /JP-8 /JP-5 fuel including electric power generation is anticipated.
