Turbine Truck Engines, Inc. (TTE) is a Nevada (C) corporation that was activated on November 27, 2000. The primary business of TTE is the commercialization of Alpha Engines Corporation's (Alpha) Detonation Cycle Gas Turbine (DCGT) engine for heavy-duty trucks with power ranges from 300 to 1,000 horsepower.

Turbine Truck Engines is currently a development stage company and is publicly traded. (TTEG.OB)

Turbine Truck Engines, Inc. (TTE) owns an exclusive License from Alpha Engines Corporation (Alpha) to manufacture and market Heavy Duty Highway Truck Engines using Alpha's patented Detonation Cycle Gas Turbine (DCGT) technology. (U.S. Patent #6,000,214)

Alpha is a Delaware (C) corporation, incorporated in 1984 that is based in Florida and operates as research and development company. Privately funded, Alpha continues to advance the innovative research and engineering efforts of scientist Robert L. Scragg, the inventor and developer of Detonation Cycle Gas Turbine (DCGT) a revolutionary new turbine engine technology for heavy-duty trucks.

Following the development of its first prototype engine in 1987, Alpha has successfully designed and constructed four additional DCGT prototype engines, (1987, 1989, 1993, 2006) the practicality of which has been proven. Alpha's fifth (5th) prototype, a 540 HP engine, was successfully delivered to Turbine Truck Engines, Inc., DeLand, Florida in March 2006.

TTE has an exclusive licensing agreement with Alpha that provides TTE with all global licensing rights to Alpha's technology, including the manufacturing, sales and marketing for DCGT heavy duty truck engines, as well the right to partner, or re-license Alpha DCGT engine technology to third parties. In addition, the license includes a potential joint venture agreement with a leading US trucking and transportation company for the final development and commercialization of the TTE DCGT heavy duty truck engine.

The TTE DCGT engine utilizes a unique Electromagnetic Isothermal Combustion (EIC) Process that produces complete combustion of fuel-oxidizer mixtures in cyclic detonations that negate unwanted NOx and CO emissions.

The EIC Process enables the TTE DCGT engine to operate with blower air at low static pressure, negating the necessity of compressing and preheating fuel-oxidizer mixtures prior to combustion. By eliminating the compression of fuel-oxidizer mixtures, the TTE DCGT achieves higher thermal efficiencies in a simplified mechanical structure, and provides the following advantages over current diesel, gasoline and gas turbine engines:

1. Air Cooled - Less than 2 Pounds per Horsepower
2. Fewer Moving Parts - Less Maintenance, No Pistons, No Valves
3. Significantly Reduces "Greenhouse" Exhaust Gas Emissions
4. Reduced Fuel Consumption: 30%+
5. Flex-fuel and Mixed Fuels Capability
6. Operates on All Hydrocarbon Fuels, Hydrogen and Synthetic Fuels
7. No Lube Oil, Filters or Pumps
8. Cold Start Capability

TTE DCGT Engine delivers a significant and unique competitive advantage over today's current engine technology. The TTE DCGT Engine will allow the US and the world to reduce its dependency on foreign oil, and at the same time significantly reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions associated with global warming.
