Thrust Unit with Coanda Effect and vtol aircraft


Published on

The Thrust unit with Coanda effect - TUCE as drag-reducing propulsion system and can be deployed in a versatile hover-capable flying aircraft to lift heavy loads efficiently. Scalable with a combination of stable overlapping flight roles and modes from horizontal take-off through assisted low speed and stationary hover through to high speed winged flight and back. TUCE mainly employs a multiple electric fan arrangement and new configuration creating a very efficient air distribution which are used for vertical lift and also for horizontal propulsion. As an unmanned system or as autonomous / piloted VTOL system, this application offers increased operational versatility, stability, scalability, maneuverability, energy efficiency, load capacity, performance, low noise and increased safety potential. Other advantages include the simplified mechanical construction over helicopters with a series of multiple redundant electric motors with independent adjustment for directional thrust. Blade destruction will not cause catastrophic power loss from the multiple motors. TUCE offers extremely reduced footprint and consequently low safety issues when operate in city or other similar environments. TUCE is a scalable concept and can be reproduced from small UAVs to large or very large aircraft.

  2. 2.  A feasibility study showed that there existed a need for a multi-purpose general aviation aircraft with the ability to take-off and land vertically. In particular, the Emergency Services would benefit tremendously from the ability to pick up patients from otherwise inaccessible locations, thus improving their service and helping to save the lives of people in all the world sites. On the other hand to transport the people from door to door remains an untouched mission for the actual VTOL solutions. This is because 99% of the VTOL actual solutions use at least an external airscrew to produce the lift. That determines a catastrophic behavior when are touched external objects.
  3. 3.  Within the present concept we develop a "best in class," advanced VTOL aircraft system utilizing the new proposed technology, combining the Vertical Take Off and Landing capabilities of a helicopter with the horizontal speed and payload of a traditional jet airplane. This new advanced VTOL aircrafts using the new Thrust Unit will revolutionize regional flying and provide an accessible and affordable transportation platform for both the commercial and civilian/military markets while reducing capital and operating expenses.

  5. 5.  The new VTOL aircraft capabilities while eliminating all current rotary wing technical issues, will also dramatically reduce airport congestion and flight delays by as much as 50% by allowing a significant number of flights to by-pass major hubs and travel more direct, point-to-point routes. This has the added benefit of freeing-up takeoff and landing slots at major airports for larger jets thus further alleviating congestion and delays. Additional civil applications include search and rescue, fire fighting, pollution and traffic monitoring, crop management, weather tracking and forecasting as well as individual flights.  On the military side, governments will benefit from the new VTOL aircraft calable design allowing the flexibility needed to support a wide range of strategic and tactical missions, from small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) applications, to rapid deployment of troops and cargo from remote locations all over the world or to individual solder flights.
