Abstract
This program is expected to result in a compact, high energy density, silent propulsion system for small unmanned autonomous systems (SUAS). The innovative approach chosen for this project will substantially increase both range and time aloft of miniature unmanned air vehicles (UAVs), while using far less electricity. This will leave more available electricity for sensors and communications resulting in more eyes on more targets for longer times. BENEFIT: This propulsion system is a significant advancement in the area of small to micro-UAVs. It substantially reduces the weight of UAV propulsion system while remaining quiet and enabling much longer missions and higher battery payload for increased UAV effectiveness. The system will be lightweight, inexpensive, and efficient, enabling it to replace conventional electric propeller systems on numerous platforms. It can address the needs of many market segments beyond the military, including Homeland Security, agriculture, and geologic mapping.
