SineWaves - Matthew W. Wright

SineWaves - Advanced Power Generation Technologies

SineWaves Inc. has been formed by a group of like minded friends to cultivate an idea inventor Matthew W. Wright had for a new concept regarding micro-power generation, the Co-Axial Turbo Rotary Engine or CATRE.  With a Patent Pending and a working proof of concept currently undergoing development on our in-house dynamo meter, SineWaves is now looking to develop one its more advanced CATRE Configurations, the CATRE-I.  

SineWaves Inc was started when engineer Matthew Wright pulled together 4 friends to invest in his idea for a new engine / generator concept he been sketching.  

Along with filing a Provisional Patent the team decided to build a proof of concept engine to help mature the concept.  Within a year Matt Wright, Curt Mohney, and Randy McGee, along with friends / partners Bryce Kroha & Brian Nese had designed, procured and fabricated the worlds first CATRE.  

Curt and Matt went to Kettering University (formerly GMI) together & later worked together at Saleen in Irvine California where they met Randy and together had great success designing and building performance sports cars.   

A history of remarkable successes already exists between this team of friends and there is only more to come.
