MEMS-Enhanced Laproscopic Tools

David Walther
(Professor Albert P. Pisano)

The goal of the MEMS rotary engine power system (MEMS REPS) is to develop an autonomous, commercially viable, portable power system based on an integrated power generator and rotary internal combustion engine. This engine will have a continuous power output of ~100 mW, and is designed to leverage the specific energy advantage of liquid hydrocarbon fuels over current portable power sources. The design also allows for rapid field implementation in a variety of applications requiring localized power generation. Applications include interconnected sensor networks or land warrior power supplies.
