Craig Fletcher, founder and CEO of Cubewano, said: "Another supplier was originally building the engine for the US Army's Class 1 increment 2 project, but the turbine suffered catastrophic failure so we were brought in to design, test and deliver a brand new engine with very aggressive weight targets - all in less than two years.
The judges praised Mr Addy, now R&D manager for Cubewano, for his unfaltering commitment, commenting that "whilst it can be a 9 to 5 occupation for some, those who create the best designs don't recognise the constraints of the clock.
The generator is based on rotary engine technology developed by Cubewano for the next generation of unmanned air vehicles for the US armed forces.
The licensing agreement will enable Fidelity to utilize Cubewano LTD's proprietary rotary engine technology in the Department of Defense market for tactical power generation where high power density and multi-fuel capabilities are a priority to the warfighter.
Craig Fletcher, founder and CEO of Cubewano, said: "We initially developed an engine for use in unmanned air vehicles, which involved an exceptional power to weight ratio - producing over one horsepower per pound and which would run on almost any type of fuel.
For Cubewano, this kind of recognition is essential as we try to break into new marketsOMouser Electronics 'online' provides us with a window on a fantastic range of productsOMany thanks for the interest and support.
The appointment builds on an informal relationship formed with Cubewano co-founders Craig Fletcher and Shaun Addy seven years earlier.
Craig Fletcher, founder and CEO of Cubewano, said: "Rotary engines are not typically known for their fuel efficiency, so after conquering the challenge of producing a high power to weight ratio rotary engine which would run on heavy fuel we turned our attention to reducing fuel consumption.

BIRMINGHAM, England -- British engine maker Cubewano has created the world's lightest and most powerful engine to run on heavy fuel, providing over one horsepower per pound, as part of an aerospace project to modernise the US military.
Cubewano, based in Sutton Coldfield, which has 11 patents for its engine and military generators, has been forced to sell valuable designs to foreign firms because it can't access enough support in the UK.
Engineer is lauded Midland engineer Shaun Addy from engine maker Cubewano has been lauded by his peers, scooping the title of Design Engineer of the Year at the British Engineering Excellence Awards (BEEA).
