|20120167551||ELECTRIC TURBINE BYPASS FAN AND COMPRESSOR FOR HYBRID PROPULSION - An electric turbine compressor fan for hybrid propulsion wherein the compressor contains one or more rotor stages (compressor and diffuser), each being driven by one or more electric ring motors, such that the compressor rotor stages are designed and tuned more precisely to the compression ratio to be attained within the turbine design operating characeristics, thrust requirements and flight envelope.||07-05-2012|
|20110138765||MAGNETIC ADVANCED GENERATION JET ELECTRIC TURBINE - Supersonic Magnetic Advanced Generation Jet Electric Turbine (S-MAGJET) described herein, and a subsonic derivative, MAGJET, integrate a gas power turbine, superconducting electric power and propulsion generation, and magnetic power flux field systems along with an ion plasma annular injection combustor which utilizes alternative petroleum-based fuel and combustion cycles to create a hybrid turbine turbomachine for aerospace propulsion. The propulsion unit is able to achieve a dramatic increase in horsepower, combustion and propulsion efficiency, and weight reduction. In addition, the turbomachinery structures may be disposed within an exo-skeleton architecture that achieves an increase in thrust to weight ratio with a concomitant increase in fuel efficiency and power generation over traditional gas turbine technology today. The engine continuously adjusts the temperature, pressure and mass airflow requirements using an electromagnetic power management system architecture. Engine performance may be controlled across the entire desired flight envelope, whether subsonic, transonic or supersonic flight conditions. With bypass fan(s), compressor stages and turbine segments controlled electrically in a shaftless turbine design, the S-MAGJET maximizes the propulsion efficiencies over a broader range of operating conditions compared to current art of turbine technology and at much higher thermodynamic and aerodynamic efficiencies.||06-16-2011|
|20110031760||SUPERCONDUCTING TURBINE WIND RING GENERATOR - A wind generator is disclosed in which superconducting ring generators are utilized without the need for a load bearing drive shaft and other mechanical components, decreasing overall weight and enabling the use of variable geometry blades for increased overall efficiency.||02-10-2011|
|20100186414||MAGNETIC ION PLASMA ANNULAR INJECTION COMBUSTOR - Discloses a technique for application of an external electric field to a mixture of atomized air, molecularized with fuel to a specific predetermined density, in an annular turbine combustor configuration. An electric current is distributed into the atomized air by a plurality of ion plasma fuel injector devices to affect the propagation speed, stability, flame size and shape and combustion chemistry of the fuel air mixture at the flame front.||07-29-2010|
|20090127379||VTOL AIRCRAFT WITH FORWARD-SWEPT FIXED WING - A fixed-wing VTOL aircraft features a forward-swept wing configuration coupled with a tripod arrangement of the engines (two forward, one rear), a forward-swept empennage or tail assembly, and a forward canard. The engines and wings/empennage are located relative to each other such that the engine outlet nozzles, which pivot downwardly to provide lift-off thrust, are minimally covered by the wings/empennage, if at all. The wings and empennage may include lifting fans to supplement lift and provide pitch and/or roll control.||05-21-2009|
