Project ANGEL was instigated with the aim of producing a useful flying electrogravitic craft. Interested in the properties of such a vehicle, I tested variations of Brown's gravitators, wih varying success, using High-K dielectric. The one thing which was most of the inspiration for ANGEL was the B2 Spirit bomber.
Look carefully at the exploded diagram above. The B2 Spirit is the vehicle most likely to be a modern-day electrogravitic aircraft in modern usage. Why? The reasons below outline why this may be:
The RAM (Radar Absorbtive Material) skin of the B2 is made of a baked ceramic containing large quantities of depleted Uranium. This metal is a super-dielectric, in line with the Brown gravitator equations.
The USAF has publicly acknowledged that the exhaust jet of the B2 is electrostatically ionised. This would aid in traditional "stealth" applications, but would also be an integral part in an electrogravitic vehicle, for those familiar with Brown's flame-jet electrostatic generator.
With electrostatics in mind, notice that the leading edge of the wing is segmented, allowing for accurate distribution of charge along it. This would permit electrogravitational banking maneuvers, without an ounce of aerodynamic thrust.
The B2 is, in flight, virtually silent. This could be put down to normal stealth technologies, but may also be electrogravitic in nature. The only sound is that of the air being disturbed by the passage of the craft. Journalists have reported being shocked by the virtual absence of sound of the craft when landing.
The B2 produces no visible heat haze behind its engine ports at liftoff, nor does it leave vapour trails at high altitude. Again, for those familiar with the flame-jet generator, it will be known that an actual flame is not required for the charge separation to occur, just a fast-flowing dielectric fluid such as air, water, CO2, etc.
I is my inderstanding that the B2 will be visiting a number of airshows throughout the United Kingdom during 2001, and I will endeavour to attend these, and obtain pictures and video footage.
How does this apply to ANGEL? It proves that an electrogravitational flying draft is a reality. Gravitator action, suitably scaled up, could theoretically provide all the lift required. Although I had been testing ANGEL technologies for a long time, I need to get real data from a complete craft experiencing electrogravitic thrust. This first ANGEL is.........
This is a very simple prototype, based upon a wooden model of the Panavia Tornado interceptor. It employs Biefeld-Brown leading edge type arrangement for providing thrust. Please click on the link above for full details.
