Global warming should feel a chill when StarDrive Propulsion System™ arrives!
The superior ability of StarDrive Propulsion™ to propel motor vehicles, ships and aircraft, will transform the world’s transportation markets. Gains in these industries include increased fuel efficiency, resulting from the reduced frictional losses of the mechanically simple design and reduced vehicle weight, as transmissions, drive shafts and power train parts will no longer be needed for cars and trucks. Boats will benefit from the loss of their propellers.
Aircraft will enjoy similar efficiency gains with no need for the weight and drag of propellers, or externally mounted jet engines that run out of thrust at high altitudes where the flying is optimal. Unlike propellers, the StarDrive Propulsion System™ does not suffer a loss of thrust with increasing altitudes and thinner air. As long as the engine continues to run, thrust will remain unaffected by the chosen flight level. In fact, it is reasonable to anticipate that a StarDrive Propulsion™ powered craft can be launched from an airport runway and flown from the ground into space!
With StarDrive™ there is no need to store large amounts of chemical fuel onboard orbiting satellites in order to maintain their positions. Equipped with StarDrive Propulsion™, satellites can be kept on station as long as the sun shines. All space faring craft can live longer, more productive and profitable lives without fear that orbits will decay. Moving to a different orbital height or position is as easy as sending a program command and StarDrive will take a satellite to wherever it is needed.
- Move payloads from launch vehicle release to desired altitude and position
- Rendezvous with space assets for inspection or servicing
- Transfer small payload to higher or lower orbit or from a manned Earth orbiting platform – e.g. the International Space Station
- Alter orbital position and inclination of satellites as much and as often as needed
- Station stays on orbit for precise positioning
CURRENT SATELLITE TECHNOLOGY
Boeing’s communication satellites, like most all commercial satellites, use both chemical rockets and ion thrusters for their 601HP and the new, larger and more powerful 702HP communications satellite. The 702HP chemical rocket used for getting into a geostationary orbit can produce 110 foot lbs. (490 N) of thrust and its advanced Xenon Ion Propulsion System (XIPS) can generate up to nearly 5 foot pounds (22N) of thrust using up to 5 kg Xenon a year. StarDrive Propulsion System™ provides tens, hundreds and even thousands of times more thrust and never runs out of fuel when powered by solar panels.
Every Trekkie / Trekker can rejoice as Impulse Drive is alive and ready to be put to use. Solar system exploration is made easy. Just supply electricity with radioisotope thermoelectric generators (RTG) or solar panels and head out to Pluto. Even interstellar flights are possible with NASA’s nuclear generators. Imagine that, the Final Frontier is here!
