The first force counteracting aircraft is shown above ^ (It's NEW)
We're developing a method to fly using controllable thrust from open ended units that are manually controlled, assisted by a computing system, or autonomous (self-controlled). NOTE: Aircraft have an operating engine to propel them forward.

LET'S ZOOM-IN ON SOME KEY ELEMENTS:
Thanks for coming to see a new idea. New hydrodynamic & aerodynamic technologies can make improved directional thrust devices for watercraft and aircraft. We're concentrating on aviation uses first. This introduction focuses on a new means to fly so planes can be safer plus save fuel. Force balancing was not used by engineers before because the data wasn't available. Our units are thrust vectoring controllers that don't project out from the body more than 4 feet. The open ended thrust units have better engineering than what man has come up with yet. There are 15 features down 5 paragraphs. A better idea is here.
You may like to learn more about the air flow units and computing systems. Read this e-brochure then contact us. We can answer your questions about the quick moving thrust units and reactive computing systems. Learn more on this site.
An 'air flow' science for planes using a non-mechanical (non-engine) means to make thrust can be explained. Two thrust (non-engine) principles are involved to dynamically control airplanes better. US Air Corps jet fighters can be quicker to respond to pilot's commands. A combination of advanced control features can make jet fighters more maneuverable when the systems are installed on plane bodies.
Flowing fluid force (air flow) is a solution to the weaknesses of aircraft. There is a very difficult problem (drag) to solve. When the flat panel units aren't operating drag is far less than from wings. They basically solve the drag problem because air flows through unimpeded. An aircraft's weight is less so it can accelerate easily, climb quicker, change direction rapidly, fly faster, plus lift off and land at a lower speed than is possible now. Those are considered huge performance advances.
The technologies provide a wingless aircraft with directional and speed-increased air for thrust. The projected outcome can be to replace wing structures with fast moving directional thrust units & reactive computing control systems. They were patented on February 19, 2013 as Otto US Patent for liquid or air thrust devices with a computing control system. The patent covers the components & system.
15 features of the proposed thust units are: 1. Aircraft can weigh less (1/4 less is estimated). 2. Aircraft can accelerate 50% faster. 3. Lower speed take-offs are possible. 4. Lower speed landings are abtainable. 5. Scoops on hinges can tilt out from the body to create higher volume, faster air from the nozzles. 6. Aircraft can slowly glide to land when scoop units tilt out. 7. Units can change positions at anytime to act as speed brakes to rapidly decrease speed. 8. Aircraft can have a higher top speed. 9. Aircraft can have shorter flight times. 10. Aircraft can fly higher (2x). 11. Aircraft can climb at a higher rate because they weigh less. 12. Drag can be lower when the units are in a neutral position because air slipstreams through the hollow units. 13. Aircraft can be more aerobatic (esp., jet fighters in combat) even at low speeds. 14. Flying can be possible without engines running (a theory) to lower pollution & save fuel because jet & rocket engines may only operate to get to altitude. 15. Scoop nozzles set at 90 degrees can rotate 360 degrees. when they point up a plane can descend rapidly. Nozzles can vector air 30 degrees from level forward (reverse thrust acts as a speed brake) then pivot 150 degrees to send air straight back. The features can improve aircraft so they could be lighter, faster, safer, more agile, stable, efficient and durable to have longer service lives. Just one feature makes our product better than what it supersedes. We have 15 advantages. The engineering specifications are complete & ready for inspection.
The value proposition is the aircraft can be safer and can make quicker trips in less time. The key benefit is fully autonomous flying is possible with the fail-safe computing software once it's ready. The military can benefit first. Carrier-based planes can have the technologies.
Metal or man-made flat panels can be easily cut & assembled into configurations in minutes. The units are engineering advances that use force balancing science (Neuton's principles- an action has an equal & opposite reaction).
The scoop units can tilt away from the body to decrease speed, plus allow the aircraft to float to the ground (more down force), then stop quickly w/o using the wheel brakes. When an internal (at the nozzle end) hydraulic cylinder extends, it tilts out the scoop on a piano hinge along the front edge of the main panel. The tilt note on the third image below shows units can tilt 60 degrees away from the body to act as speed brakes. High speed air can be sent forward 30 degrees from level.
The attachment process is simple and quick after an adaptation platform is secured to the body. Unit wiring is then connected to the computing system. Sensors, motion detectors and a multiple gun radar system can be installed to finish the system.
To review, analytical computing systems can make operation of aircraft easier. In the initial form the aircraft can have parallel dual computing systems that are fully functional (w/o freezing). Analytical operating systems can be part of the prototype control systems to back-up pilots until planes are autonomous (self-controlling). In the future occupants can fly with hands off the control. Autonomous operation can occur with software encondig to provide artificial awareness of the surroundings. The computing systems may react to input data to send commands to the thrust units. Multiple embedded processors share data to accomplish parallel computing in both computer units. Acceptance is projected.
At Flight Control Systems, buyers at aircraft assembly plants come first. You can find what you need to build safer aircraft. Please state your specific need to expedite your supply of thrust units & reactive computing control systems. Specifications can be disclosed in a secure, soon to arrange, execitive forum.
Below see artist renderings of executive jets with the units. Images 1-3 show fully deployed scoops used when lifting off, slowing down, when gliding down to land, and to stop at any time. The configuration becomes tube shaped (image 4) when it isn't operating to speed up the air. A tube shape is used during the entire flight. The half cylinder (curved) sides swing through an arc to come together & form a tube. Near the back end of each curved side are pivot pins. "N" on the second image signifies the nozzles. Certification requires field testing of our thrust units & computing systems before the flight control systems can be endorsed. What is shown can be certified as airworthy. Several months may go by before production can begin. When they are reproduced, units can eliminate wings. < a good benefit
