The Photonic Space Engine Driver or P.S.E.D is the future solution for deep space transportation and energy needs. Potential benefits include low cost accelerated transportation of resources from mining operations, time consuming transportation of valuable equipment or personnel from deep space missions and an abundant supply of energy for domestic and external use. This allows for low costs in fuel consumption.
PSED uses intensely concentrated light for a constant clean acceleration in order to conserve solid or liquid propellants for immediate use. The PSED module would be applied to large powerful satellites, space stations, spaceships and all related space vehicles that fit within the gross spacecraft category. If applied correctly PSED's market potential will include the access to untapped business in deep space and near earth resources. This in turn will supply the demands for our growing Global Economic needs.
PSED uses 2 small nuclear power-plants to generate enough electricity which is used for providing energy to the Driver, the spacecraft and external equipment.The manufacturing of the PSED would have to incorporate the combined assistance of the NASA - Rocket Manufacturing Facility, Nuclear Suppliers Association, Raytheon M Ship Company and Canon. As well as hardware and software from various companies. A realistic investment including the labor, the Titan III Rockets used for delivery,the materials needed and the overall cooperation and construction of the engine is approximately $900,000,000 to $1,500,000,000 USD. The production cost is negligible based on new technologies. Athough the cost is high the logical application for deep space mining will cause return to Triple every year. paving the way for new advances in science research and technologies to fund itself without limitations , in order to benefit the human race.
