An experimental propellerless drone (potentially purely electric) based on conventional familiar physics in unfamiliar combinations (without propellers, without conventional rocketry, without electromagnetic radiation) has been under proprietary research and development since November 2015. If this lift force can be demonstrated by proof of concept prototypes then the technology could be scaled upwards to lift metric tons into space, and generally to transport cargo (human and material) in a legion of applications for each of which a separate business plan could be formulated.
Analytical and Experimental critical function and/or characteristic proof-of-concept
Component and/or breadboard (Arduino) validation in laboratory environment
The following statements report TRL status:
TRL 1: Completed. The theoretical prediction completed (observed) and reported in internal white paper memorandum (2016).
TRL 2: Completed. Technology concept and applications have been formulated.
TRL 3: Completed. Analytical critical functions have been completed and reported in internal white paper memorandum (2018).
TRL 3: Not yet completed. Experimental proof-of-concept not yet completed dependent on further funding
TRL 4: Not yet completed.
Existing prototypes have revealed features in the designs which have been successively and successfully improved. Capital is sought for time & materials in relevant machine shops, including mechanical and electrical engineering, prototype constructions through TRL 3-9 and business analyses. Proprietary designs including strict adherence to Newton's Laws are to be shared under Non Disclosure and Non Circumvent Agreements.
General Scientifics is a general physics consulting practice focused on deriving solutions to technical challenges faced in industrial applications by means of applications of mathematical, classical, quantum, relativistic, molecular, atomic, nuclear and/or particle-level physics. General Scientifics makes available PhD experimental physics experience designing, constructing and operating custom vacuum chamber hardware, custom electronics hardware and custom software embedded in particle accelerator and detector equipment including analysis of data from experiments and their comparison with theoretical predictions at particle accelerator laboratories in USA (Bates (MIT), Fermilab (SSC), BNL, Wright (Yale)), Russia (BINP) and Japan (KEK). Pre-doctoral support was provided by the US Dept of Energy, Office of Basic Sciences, Particle Physics Division; Russian Academy of Sciences, Siberian Division and post-doctoral by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) government agencies.
