Redmond, WA (PRWEB) September 11, 2007 -- IntelliJet Marine, Inc. has been granted U.S. Patent # 7,241,193 for its Variable Marine Jet propulsion technology. The company believes the IntelliJet™ technology will answer the expressed desire from boaters for greater reliability, more economical operation, and increased maneuverability and safety.
The company is currently testing the IntelliJet™ and preparing to go into production.
The technology incorporates continuously variable power transmission (CVT), now becoming standard in automobiles, and simplifies operations by eliminating the need for reverse gearing or a reversing bucket. "Existing boats utilize a fixed drive system that hasn't been seen in automobiles since the Model T. The IntelliJet™ is naturally expected to enhance fuel economy and engine life in boats, just as transmissions have in automobiles," says Jeff Jordan, President of IntelliJet Marine, Inc.
Management expects the IntelliJet™ system to offer better efficiency than conventional jets and propellers over a wide range of operating speeds and loads.
