A radical solution for aviation problems is here. Emerging beneficial technologies called flow-thrust technologies can be better avionics that aren’t understood today. Configurations making less drag need research and development before starting production. The aviation industry can be transformed by the technologies. Assembly of the planes can be sped up significantly. The units are simply attached and connected to the wiring. The directional thrust units are important engineering discoveries that can replace wings and advance aerodynamics. Thrust units do not need de-icing because they have Teflon coated surfaces. Maintenance and repair are limited because they are made to be durable. The edges of the flat sheets are the only contact with the slipstreaming air that moves through the hollow configurations. Skin drag is the only drag the units have unless they operate to deflect or accelerate the air.
15 important features of the proposed system are: 1. Aircraft can weigh much less (about 1/2 is estimated). 2. Aircraft can accelerate faster (2x). 3. Lower speed takeoffs are possible. 4. Lower speed landings are possible. (2x). 5. Units can change position anytime to act as air brakes to rapidly decrease speed. 6. Scoop units can tilt away from the body to create higher volume, faster air from the scoop nozzles. 7. Aircraft can slowly glide to land when the scoop units tilt out from the body. 8. Aircraft can have a higher top speed. 9. Aircraft can have shorter flight times. 10. Aircraft can fly higher (2x). 11. Aircraft can climb at a higher rate. 12. Drag can be lower because air slipstreams through the hollow units without slowing down when the units aren't operating. 13. Aircraft can be more aerobatic (esp. fighters in combat) even at low speeds. 14. Flying can be possible without engines running (must prove the method) to reduce pollution & save fuel because engines may operate only to get to altitude. 15. Scoop nozzles at 90 degrees can rotate 360 degrees (positioning them up can force a plane to descend rapidly). Nozzles can vector air diagonally at 30 degrees from level forward and then pivot 150 degrees to send air straight back.
The intent of the developer is to make units for improving aerial vehicles by providing autonomous (self) control using a computing system that can react to conditions in 1/60 of a second. Computing tasks using radar data can permit pilotless operation; although the throttle, brake, and joystick can be available to use. If the units are made for assemblers of Department of Defense jet fighters the technology must be classified. We hope you have a good impression of the radical change for aviation.
