RESTON, Va., March 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - QinetiQ North
America (QNA) today announced that the U.S. Marine Corps has selected Q-Gen™
2.0, the newest version of QNA's 1kW, JP-8 fuel compatible, one-man portable
generator, for further evaluation during the Low Rate Initial Production
(LRIP) phase of the One Man-Portable Generator (1MPG) program.

"Our warfighters can't afford delays in their power-supplied systems on the
battlefield or in remote, hostile environments," said QNA Technology Solutions
Group President J.D. Crouch. "Q-Gen provides a reliable source of portable
power that weighs less than forty pounds."

Q-Gen 2.0 is a lightweight, one man portable power solution that can easily
support military missions in remote, hostile or austere environments. It has
been proven to continuously operate on heavy fuels such as JP-8 and Jet A in a
wide variety of operational conditions and ambient environments. Q-Gen 2.0
does not require an accelerant to start or operate on heavy fuels, and it
automatically adjusts air flow and engine temperature in response to
fluctuations in the environment or applied load.

Q-Gen 2.0 features significantly improved batteries and a more efficient
vaporizer to enhance reliability and performance. This versatile power
management system can support the mission needs of any military team requiring
a readily available source of expeditionary power. Operating on JP-8 fuel,
Q-Gen 2.0 provides 900W of continuous power for over three hours on a single
tank of fuel and can be connected to other Q-Gen units to provide efficient
and scalable energy solutions.

Operating as the U.S. component of QinetiQ Group plc's Global Products
division, QNA's Technology Solutions Group is a world leader in technology
solutions that save lives in defense, security and commercial environments.
