U.S. Navy SBIR Phase II Contract Award (2-11-2014)
Candent Technologies has been awarded a Phase II contract to demonstrate a small heavy fuel engine and propulsion system for the U.S. Navy.  This contract covers the first year of a two year effort that will include engine and waterjet development for the propulsion of a small unmanned surface vehicle. 

U.S. Navy SBIR Contract Award Notification (9-11-2013)
Candent Technologies has been notified that it has been selected for the award of an SBIR Phase I contract from the U.S. Navy under solicitation N132-086.  This Phase I program is the first step in the development of a high efficiency power generation unit for an Active Denial Technology system. 

U.S. Navy SBIR Contract Award (9-3-2013)
Has recently completed a Phase I Option program for the U.S. Navy for a heavy fuel small unmanned surface vehicle propulsion system.  A SBIR Phase II contract award is pending and is expected in the near future.

U.S. Navy SBIR Contract Award (1-23-2013)
Candent Technologies is now under contract with the U.S. Navy for a thirty month Phase II SBIR program.  This program is a follow-on effort to complete the final design and produce a concept demonstration prototype waste heat recovery system for Naval shipboard applications.  This advanced system can be applied to power generation and other industrial processes to produce electrical power from the process waste heat.  

U.S. Navy SBIR Contract Award Notification (4-10-2012)
Candent Technologies has been notified that it has been selected for the award of an SBIR Phase I contract from the U.S. Navy.  This Phase I program is the first step in the development of a high efficiency heavy fuel propulsion system for small surface unmanned craft.  Applications of the technology extend to remotely piloted air vehicles, as well as other small manned and unmanned vehicles, both military and commercial.

U.S. Navy SBIR Contract Award Notification (1-21-2011)
Candent Technologies has been notified that it has been selected for the award of an SBIR Phase I contract from the U.S. Navy.  This program is designed to demonstrate a bottoming cycle system for large ships that will substantially improve the efficiency of the their power generation and propulsion systems.

DOE SBIR Contract Award Notification (8-3-2010)
Candent Technologies has been notified that it has been selected for the award of an SBIR Phase II contract from the U.S. Department of Energy.  This program is designed to demonstrate key elements of a high efficiency distributed power generation system based on our proprietary high performance gas turbine engine technology.

 DOE SBIR Contract Award Notification (11-23-2009)
Candent Technologies has been notified that it has been selected for the award of an SBIR Phase I contract from the U.S. Department of Energy for application of this engine technology to advanced power generation.  The contract period is for six months and work is expected to begin in late December.

 U.S Navy SBIR Work Started (11-17-2009)
Candent Technologies is now under contract to the U.S. Navy for the design modifications required for application of this engine technology to small craft.   The contract is an SBIR Phase I effort to be conducted over the next six months.

 ONR Study Contract Awarded (7-1-2009)
Candent Technologies has been awarded a nine month study contract by the Office of Naval Research to examine additional improvements in specific fuel consumption that would be provided by the insertion advanced technology subcomponents in our demonstrator engine.

  Technology Demo Testing Completed (5-28-2008)
Phase II+ Full Scale Engine Testing was recently completed verifying the engine design and performance capability.  Test engine fuel consumption is within 5% of the fully developed engine performance goal.  Future design and development efforts will be centered on the commercialization of this exciting new engine technology.

  Technology Demo Testing Continues (12-15-2007)
A second test series was successfully completed, closing out the Phase II Army contract.  Additional performance demonstration and component performance mapping is being conducted under the Phase II Plus Program.  Test results are verifying the validity of the basic underlying technology being developed.  Engine testing is expected to resume early in the first quarter of 2008.

  Technology Demo Testing Underway
Full scale demonstration testing for the U.S. Army program is being conducted at our new test facility.  One series of tests has been completed and we expect to be back on test with modifications in the near future. This testing will close out the Phase II SBIR program and start the Phase II Plus program.   

 We've Moved!
Candent Technologies has moved into a new facility to accommodate the growth that we have recently experienced.  Please note the new address and phone numbers in our contacts page.  This new facility includes extensive component test capabilities and room for additional growth.  

  U.S. Army Phase II Plus Contract Award
Candent Technologies has been awarded and is now under contract to perform additional development and testing on the advanced technology being developed for the Army.  This contract will be conducted in 2007 as a follow-on program to the Phase II SBIR program that took place in 2005 and 2006.

  Indiana 21st Century Fund Grant
Candent Technologies has been selected for a grant from the Indiana 21st Century Fund    This grant will be used to expand the demonstration of advanced engine technology being conducted for the U.S. Army under the SBIR Phase II program and will make Candent Technologies eligible for additional Army Phase II Plus funding.

U.S. Army Phase II SBIR Contract Award
In November of 2004 Candent Technologies was awarded a Phase II SBIR contract by the Army as a follow-on to their successful Phase I concept definition and preliminary design effort.  The Phase II contract will conduct demonstration testing of the advanced technology studied in the Phase I program

U.S. Army Phase I SBIR Contract Award
A Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I contract was awarded to Candent Technologies to define advanced concepts for performance enhancement of turbine engines suitable for small unmanned aircraft and drones.  Effort on this initial Phase I contract was successfully completed in June of 2004.
