Quantumloop Propulsion

Anti-Inertia Electric Propulsion

The future of transportation has dawned

Quantumloop Propulsion

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. Validation and feasibility stage.

Quantumloop Technology

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, 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 asymmetry with the environment that results in an action by the environment to recover symmetry through the "anti-inertia" 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.

Energy for propulsion is fully supplied through the external environmentally supplied anti-inertia.This implies energy needs are trivial. 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!


Quantumloop Engine


This is a drop-in engine - engine can be placed anywhere. So, for marine, it can be used for not just wind powered boats, but for any main propulsion - diesel, electric, etc. This can coexist with the existing main propulsion and can provide main/auxiliary propulsion. This implies higher speed, longer range or lesser energy consumption as combined together. 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. 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.

The same engine can be used for other applications - air, land, and space. Expectedly each application will need appropriate control system and integrations for the specific application - but the engine itself should be mostly the same. This is feasible due to the inertia aspect as mentioned before - which is universally relevant.

For space - speeds much beyond anything than current chemical/electric rockets can hope to provide. Far beyond the scale of any nuclear thermal rocket designs. In a size at a fraction of these. All this without violating any law of physics.

Planned configuration:

Output thrust: 1 kN

Power Input: Upto 0.5 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, we will be able to offer it directy with mainstream vehicle manufacturers, when the full power of the technology may be accessed. Also, the above configuration is shown as in initial plan - significantly larger output thrust is feasible to the scale needed for commmercial transportation ships.
