Abstract:

The Pulse Reactor Engine Program is aimed at developing efficient, high performance lift-propulsion systems that have no moving parts. The Pulse Reactor engine is unique in that it rejects foreign particles that are denser than air therefore, it can operate in the interface between ground and air that is denied to other aircraft lift-propulsion systems. In particular, development has been concerned with the performance effects of 1 engine size, 2 new shapes, 3 forward flight and vertical flight performance, 4 engine controls and accessories, 5 pulse reactor materials, construction techniques and engine durability.
