Abstract
UNIQUE MOBILITY HAS INVENTED A NOVEL MEANS OF CONSTRUCTING A BRUSHLESS DC MOTOR WHICH OPERATES WITH HIGH EFFICIENCY AND HIGH POWER CAPABILITY. THE ASSOCIATED UNIQUE PERMANENT MAGNET MOTOR TECHNOLOGY MAY BE AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR THE AAAV APPLICATION OF A COMMON MOTOR/ALTERNATOR. IN THE PHASE I CONCEPT STUDY, A SINGLE ROTATING DEVICE IS PROPOSED TO SERVE AS A TRANSOM MOUNTED WATERJET MOTOR AS WELL AS A MATCHING ENGINE DRIVEN ALTERNATOR POWER SOURCE. THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THIS SAME ROTATING DEVICE AS A LAND TRACTION MOTOR WILL ALSO BE EXPLORED. IF PROVEN FEASIBLE, THE COMMON MOTOR/ALTERNATOR WILL OFFER REDUCED DEVELOPMENT TIME FOR THE AAAV PROPULSION SYSTEM.
