QinetiQ North America's Q-Gen 2.0 Selected by U.S. Marine Corps for One Man-Portable Generator Program

Q-Gen 2.0 is a lightweight, one man portable power solution that can easily support military missions in remote, hostile or austere environments.

Reston, VA- 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.
