Corporate Goals:

  • Our corporate objectives are twofold:
    1. to develop and manufacture customized diesel engine related products to meet specific niche market needs, and
    2. to provide to our clients a high level of research/engineering capability and technical service, based on the strengths of skilled research/technical personnel.
  • In support of these objectives, AET is dedicated to maintaining a strong, current capability in applied research and testing for engine/engine component and instrumentation development.

AET research and development activities are focussed on six main product areas:

  • patented diesel fuel ignition quality test equipment (IQT™), based on Southwest Research Institute technology (ASTM / Energy Institute test method approved, number designation ASTM 6890 / IP 498)
  • compact, ultra-light weight, diesel engines and generator sets,
  • self-contained backup / peak shaving electric power generation units (with or without co-generation)
  • fully automated common rail fuel injection test rig
  • diesel low temperature starting aids,
  • sensor technology for diesel engines
  • advanced fuel injection systems
  • engine condition monitoring technology for diesel engine applications, developed in co-operation with the National Research Council utilizing its patented ICAV technology

AET’s laboratory facilities are located in Ottawa, Ontario.
