Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2006025851A2] A highly efficient propulsion system for flying, floating, and ground vehicles that operates in an atmosphere under standard conditions according to radiometric principles. The propulsion system comprises specially fabricated plates that exhibit large linear thrust forces upon application of a temperature gradient across edge surfaces. Several embodiments are presented. The propulsion system has no moving parts, does not use working fluids, and does not burn hydrocarbon fuels.
