We have developed an advanced thruster concept that works and has wide-reaching payoffs. The current devices can achieve 1000-6000 ISP. Theoretically 1,000,000 ISP is possible with deuterium-helium 3.
* The ELF thruster is a major improvement over traditional electric propulsion, for most power levels and missions
* Neutral entrainment could make it revolutionary – dramatically extending the specific impulse, thrust-to-power, and power ranges.
* Direct innovative application to hypersonic vehicles, air-breathing space propulsion, in-situ propellant utilization, high-altitude recon, propellant sharing (multi mode), and ???.
Are there unforeseen technology development challenges to a pulsed inductive thruster?
What are the power, specific impulse, geometry and density limits of neutral entrainment?
At MSNW LLC., we are investigating several techniques for realistic-scale fusion that is applicable to practical energy conversion and energy generators. Our research is focused on pulsed magnetic fusion (pulsed MFE), a middle ground between Tokamak and Laser-driven inertial fusion.
