This document explains design and test results of a working prototype which generates thrust and torque without using reaction mass.


 1. Introduction:

The scope of this document is to explain the prototype / apparatus which can generate thrust and torque in space. The area of research is a Thrust and Torque Generator, rather a prototype, which can generate sufficient continuous thrust or torque in space from electric power, without using reaction mass. Major application of this apparatus is to control attitude (orientation) of satellite or space vehicles. It does not have limitations of momentum wheels or fuel based small thrusters which is the popular method used presently. This apparatus can be further engineered to generate sufficient thrust in space from electric power.

2.  Background:

It is necessary to correct the orientation / attitude of satellites at regular interval due to certain drifts. Present technique use momentum wheels to orient the satellites. However, once the speed of moment wheels reach at their limits, it is necessary to slow down the momentum wheel and compensate the torque by fuel based thrusters. It also uses small fuel based thrusters for precise positioning. There is no successful technique available to generate continuous thrust and torque from electric power.

The objective of this invention is to generate the Thrust and Torque in space at industrial / military / space temperature range from electric power and it can be used as a suitable product for space application. It utilizes newly invented theory by the inventor which is presently not available in the existing & accepted Physics. Therefore the functioning of this apparatus can not be explained using existing physics.

3 Description of the prototype (Thrust and Torque Generator):

As mentioned earlier, working of this apparatus can not be explained using existing physics and the inventor has invented new theories which are used in this apparatus. Summary of these theories is described below for ease of understanding.

3.1 Summary of invented Theories:

3.1.1. All universe and empty space is filled with a different category of matter named as ether (M4). The ether (M4) is transparent for other forms of matter, viz. Solid (M1), Liquid (M2) & Gas (M3).

3.1.2. Ether is a media for EM wave propagation. The EM waves propagate transversely in ether.

3.1.3. Ether can flow like other fluids, and some laws of Fluid Mechanics are applicable on ether. Magnetic flux is flow of Ether which is supported by ‘The Laser Drift Experiment’ conducted by the inventor.

3.1.4. Inertia is the property generated by magnetic induction due to acceleration and retardation in matter. Ether is associated with the objects and moves or drags as the object moves. However, there is a relative motion between the object and its associated ether during acceleration or deceleration process, which is responsible for inertia which is supported by ‘The Stone Impact Experiment’ conducted by the inventor.

3.1.5. Velocity of Transverse wave propagation in ether is equivalent to the speed of light. This shows that ether has very low density and very high elasticity (bulk modulus).  

3.1.6. Gravitational force is generated by motion of charge in matter. It is resultant force of the electrostatic force vector and magnetic force vector between atoms. Gravitational field is a form of complex magnetic induction, which synchronizes motion of electrons in other matter and generates force of attraction.

3.1.7. Ether can contain huge energy in the form of flow and vibrations. A combination of magnetic flux, velocity, and vibration in ether can generate force in space by taking reaction from ether. This force is similar to gravitational force.

3.1.8. The relative motion between object and its associated ether requires both acceleration and displacement in the same direction which is applicable in linear motion. A rotary motion has centrifugal acceleration in radial direction, but there is no displacement in that direction. Therefore, the ether associated with object does not leak in constant speed rotary motion. However, the inertia property is applicable while applying angular acceleration as both angular acceleration and angular displacement are present at that time and ether leaks during angular acceleration.

3.1.9. Turning a spinning wheel to 180 deg by precession motion in any of the remaining 2 direction requires torque for sufficient duration which is exactly equal to the torque and duration in the spin axis required to achieve the same speed in reverse direction. Therefore the ether leaks in presence of both precession motion and spin motion of a gyro / spin wheel.

3.1.10. The leaking ether during combined spinning and precession motion contains significant energy and flow of this ether is attenuated while passing through insulators, reflected from conductive paramagnetic metals and absorbed in the ferromagnetic material.

3.2 Construction:

Main component of the apparatus is the cone assembly which is supported on main shaft using upper and lower covers with ball bearings. The lower cover acts as rotor to rotate the whole assembly. The apparatus also consists of dual stator based motors which are used for spin and precession drives. The rotor for spin motor also includes bevel gear and is mounted on main shaft using two ball bearings.




3.3 Working principle:

The gyro spinning wheels are rotated at speed above 10000 rpm by spin drive motor and gear arrangement. Also the whole assembly is rotated by precession drive motor between 800 to 1500 rpm. The ether leaks from magnetized spinning rotors due to combined spin and precession speeds.

The apparatus is designed to accommodate 6 spin wheels, but it was tested on 2, 3,4 and 6 wheels. Therefore, any number of spin wheels can be used in this apparatus.

This apparatus can generate only torque without thrust by proper positioning the gyro cover slot, but it can not generate only thrust and some torque will also be generated while generating the thrust. Therefore, a combination of two apparatus can be used to cancel the torque and to get only thrust. Similarly, two apparatus can be used on two sides of a satellite to get good torque from thrust.
