The Pulsed Turbine Rotor Engine VTOL Propulsion Concept and Applications: Capturing the Elusive Jet-Powered Flying Car and Redesigning a Radical Variant of the V-22 Osprey 2008-01-2269

The objective of this abstract presentation is to introduce the potential of a new gas turbine engine design: The Pulsed Turbine Rotor Engine, a “fuel injected” turbine engine. One such potential is to develop a highly responsive low-medium jet propulsion engine that can finally make a jet-powered flying car practical and affordable, while paving the way for a new light-weight, jet-powered VTOL military assault vehicle. The pursuit of this viable concept to a successfully designed and functioning prototype of the Pulsed Turbine Rotor Engine will lead to opening a whole new chapter in aviation VTOL history.
