KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Representatives of the holding company for MotoVox motorcycles and ATVs will present the company’s Sonic Flow CSI engine to space industry experts in the space power systems category at the upcoming Space Resources and Planetary & Terrestrial Mining Sciences Symposium.

The specific focus of the meetings is to advance prospects for the commercial development of space resources. Space exploration organizations such as NASA are seeking an Internal Combustion Engine Solar Independent Propulsion for lunar polar exploration rovers. The challenge is recharging rover battery power systems without access to solar energy. 

The Sonic Flow CSI is considered to be one of the leading prospects for the solicitation, according to holding company APT Group Inc.

The meeting will be organized to accommodate technical presentations, expert panels on specific topics, and roundtable discussions with all conference attendees. White papers generated from these discussions provide decisionmakers with technically sound recommendations for incorporating space resources into new exploration programs.

"The SonicFlow engine holds mission-critical advancements necessary for the hypertechnological demands of space exploration and also able to satisfy current environmental crises," said Corey Dyess, inventor and senior vice president of research and development at APT. "The SF CFI Engine is a lightweight, multi-fuel, ultra-low emission, high output, two-stroke, zero oil-consumption engine. The ICE development community continues to return to two-stroke operating principles such as the SF CFI. Two-strokes offer the greatest promise for high-density powerplants."

The meeting convenes June 10 and 11 at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colo.
