IMSG ANNOUNCES COMPACT FUEL-LESS SCRAMJET FLIGHT PROPULSION
Science applicable to national defense and domestic markets

RICHMOND HILL, Ontario – September 12, 2016 – Intelligent Market Solutions Group (IMSG) announces stage one atmospheric flight technology: “Atmo”, a compact fuel-less environmentally friendly propulsion system.

To spark the minds of youth, a Richmond Hill high school technology department is prototyping a low output version of this ion magnetohydrodymanic scramjet technology. The technology is slated to enter a STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) space startup contest, to be announced.  The space startup was inspired by “President Barack Obama on How to Win the Future Q&A with Popular Science” interview.

The contest was inspired by MP Leona Alleslev’s 150 year plan.  MP Alleslev was brought notice of the technology as Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) liaison September 12, 2016.

Intelligent Market Solutions Group www.imsg.ca was founded at the University of Waterloo.  IMSG created a year 2000 DOT NET Artificial Intelligence (AI) cloud application launching start-up PriceMetrix, which today tracks $5 trillion in investment assets.

IMSG has serviced SPAR Aerospace, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, Atomic Energy Canada Limited (AECL), Department of National Defence (DND),  and Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS).

THE SCIENCE

“90,000 miles per” propulsion is in use with today’s spacecraft as per  Ion Propulsion Advance Technology To Power Spacecrafts [720p] NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory –

We improved that technology 3 ways:

  1. Five (5) stacked engines feed each other increasing thrust, in a way where the change in surface area changes laminar flow and expands atmospheric gases utilizing magnetohydrodynamic effects to achieve thrust:fig8-5mhd
  2. Trans-atmospheric process using a one way fluid flow valve construction ATMO can utilize on-board fuel(like NASA renditions) or run in “fuel-less” mode which utilizes the atmospheric gas contents as a propellant.
  3. Completely different concept deploying an intra-atmospheric Stage I electrostatic propulsion. Here is a primer.

“Electrostatic” a.k.a. “Electrohydrodynamic” a.k.a. “Corona” propulsion is achieved by making spark gaps (corona discharge) provide thrust.  In layman’s terms a pointy negatively charged electrode, expels gaseous space, then current travels to the smooth surface attracting some of the expelled gas creating thrust.

We took a slightly different direction from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrically_powered_spacecraft_propulsion, replacing combustion with spark gap expansion, and laminar flow manipulation.  Classified versions  include magnetic gas stabilization, and plasma vortex manipulation via magnetism.

The high current spark gap rapidly expands gasses on par with 1g of TNT depending on the current. This is significant because not only are we using atmospheric gasses as fuel but Ozone is one of the main byproducts along with nitrogen compounds that chemically react with each other adding to the thrust output.
