Program Opportunity Notice PON-14-501
Advanced Natural Gas Engine Ignition Systems Research

Purpose of Solicitation

The purpose of this solicitation is to support the applied research and development of advanced high-energy ignition systems capable of overcoming the challenges of igniting natural gas fuel under high boost pressures with heavy exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) for spark-ignited Class 3-8 engines. Ignition characteristics of natural gas fuel represent challenges to engine manufacturers working to satisfy tighter emission standards, achieve lower fuel consumption and higher engine performance, and respond to market demand for extended maintenance options.

Deadline to Submit Applications: December 1, 2014 by 3:00 p.m.

Documents for the Solicitation are available at:
