Quantumloop is a novel field propulsion technology. Harnesses inertia in reverse to provide propulsion. Less than 10% of energy needs to sustain the novel reaction to produce this anti-inertia. Energy for propulsion entirely from ambient energy. So abundant limitless energy for motion. Trivial electric power needed to generate conditions for the reaction.
We are an early stage startup in Silicon Valley, CA. Technology is at a TRL3 stage and ongoing. This means this is NOT science fiction, but has crossed the border towards science fact validating our theoretical claims at an early stage.
Current state of art - since the last century - has been the reliance of fuels i.e. energy storage driven by chemistry for propulsion. Whether it is hydrocarbon, electric, hydrogen, etc. This seems to be a difficult proposition for sustainability and climate protection. This implies we have used bigger and bigger power sources brute forcing our way forward. What is needed is a sustainable solution that harnesses energy naturally and is able to provide extraordinary capabilities across forms of transportation such as high manouverability, stopping without limits, speeds, range, etc. Likely the current energy storage driven approach is incapable of ever addressing such needs. So, there is a need to move forward - with a technology like Quantumloop, that relies on ambient energy and letting "space" handle the onus of energy supply and computation for propulsion.
The technology consists of creating a novel thermodynamic nonequilibrium with "space" that results in an action by "space" to recover equilibrium through an "anti-inertia" force
This is due to a unique "virtualization of Newton's laws" in a thermodynamic domain, resulting in the the "anti-inertia" action by "space" to recover equilibrium applying a physical basis to the virtual Newton's law effects and hence makes it real, resulting in propulsion. This implies anti-inertia is at least as scalable as inertia while like inertia should be applicable anywhere - land, sea, air, space in compliance to laws of thermodynamics, and specifically with the second law of thermodynamics
The important aspect is energy for producing the thermodynamic nonequilibrium remains full conserved within the engine! Energy for propulsion is fully supplied through the "space" anti-energy.This implies energy needs are trivial since energy is conserved through the external "space" context. The other interesting aspect here is, unlike current propulsion, this is NOT about the power rating of the engine, but about the momentum i.e., speed. The technology is capable of maintaining a constant acceleration fully sustained by the anti-inertia. So, the power needs will always remain nominal. Thus, a highly uncoventional engine from what we are used to, in the normal manner. Thus, we can control the actual output momentum/power through software configurations. Compare to existing engines/motors - which have a fixed power rating!
"Space" is NOT outer space, but what surrounds us and is everywhere. Not air. But underneath all that air. Technically, it is the "vacuum".Blog
This is a type of Auxiliary Propulsion for marine, but which can be used for not just wind powered boats, but for any main propulsion - diesel, electric, etc. This coexists with the existing main porpulsion and provides auxiliary propulsion. This implies higher speed, longer range or lesser energy consumption as combined with the CPE. Thus, a drop-in, retrofit marine decarbonization at scale.
This stems from the fact that Quantumloop propulsion is a propellerless technology i.e., powered through the anti-inertia from the ambient environment - does not need water, air, etc. So, it can be placed anywhere on the boat. The system proportionately follows the main propulsion motion - thus, leaving control with the main propulsion. Thus, this is like wind propulsion - but instead of wind, we use the anti-inertia where the anti-inertia is controlled by the engine and not dependent on the vagaries of wind.
Output thrust: 1 kN
Power Input: Upto 1 kW. Powered by battery/solar feasible. No need for tons of batteries given the low power needs.
Compare to existing electric propulsion: 8-10 kW for the same thrust!
The biggest advantage of Quantumloop is that we do not need to move the water as in normal propellers. This is the big energy hog and why land based EV trends are difficult to duplicate in the water to date. Rather short range, low speeds, enormous charging needs and large, expensive, lots of heavy batteries
As we build more real world results with the CPE, we will be able to offer it directy as main propulsion, when the full power of the technology may be accessed.
