Slide 2

Ion Drive Technology Ion Propulsion works by giving a positive charge to molecules inside the chamber utilizing the bus\' sun oriented boards, attractively pulling them towards the back of the ship, and after that pushing them out through aversion. In transit out, electrons are additionally transmitted from the bus so to re-kill those decidedly charge iotas and not bring about harm to the environment.

Slide 3

Advancing ION Drive The Ionizing Chamber in an ION Drive framework is made out of a radiation framework. This framework shoots out radiation (typically as X-Rays and other imperceptible light) at the gas particles which thusly ionizes them into a decidedly charged molecule and an electron. On the off chance that we can make the radiation framework littler by having a considerably littler vitality creation source , that way we can accommodate an all the more capable x-beam while utilizing the same or littler measure of vitality.

Slide 4

Advancing ION Drive (Cont) Another approach to build the quality of our ION Drive, we would need to expand the speed at which the X-Rays hit the molecule (more speed means more motor vitality – K E = ½MV 2 ). The Law of Conservation of Energy discloses to us that the majority of that vitality will be exchanged to the particles. Today\'s molecule quickening agents are extensive and utilize a monstrous measure of vitality. We anticipate utilizing a X-Ray turbine like framework for quickening these particles in light of the fact that the LINAC is madly expansive and would not fit in our bus.

Slide 5

Lithium Reactions for ION Drive Electric Propulsion & Plasma Dynamics Laboratory at Princeton University is included in the fields of Electric and Advanced impetus frameworks, plasma progression, astronautics, and space plasma material science Uses framework like Ion Drive called Lorentz Force Accelerator Chemical response amongst Lithium and Hydrogen to make push (Lithium Hydroxide/Hydrogen/warm) We can utilize this as Hydro-Carbon like push and in addition make particles for the particle drive innovation.

Design #1 (X-33 Style) Our first outline is a basic, wide, and streamlined specialty that would contain the ION Drive framework at the back of the art. On top of the art would be various sun based boards that can be utilized to control the particle chamber. This plan would take into account us to convey a lot of materials and payload and also a higher number of individuals. This rocket is streamlined as to have the capacity to fly in the Earth\'s air at the speed of a consistent business flying machine (approx 500-600 MPH) Vehicle Designs

Slide 7

Design #2 (X-43 Style) Our second plan is a more streamlined shuttle that is equipped for going at supersonic speeds in the Earth\'s environment making this outline all the more balanced. The ION Drive framework would be situated at the base of the ship and the Hydrocarbon rockets (2 of them) would be situated on either side of the ION Drive framework. Sun based boards would again be situated on the highest point of the specialty. This plan considers more speed on Earth and makes it less demanding to get through the environment. In any case, there would be less space for payload on this specialty. Vehicle Designs (cont)

Slide 8

Tile System The van\'s tile framework is a progression on the first shell outline. At the point when the specialty would re-enter the Earth\'s air, the whole shell would need to be evacuated and supplanted. The tiles however are tumbling off on account of disgraceful sticking methods and powerless/liquefied cement. We anticipate settling the paste by making another type of the glue that can withstand higher temperatures and also cooling the whole tile framework.

Slide 9

Cooling System We might want to run fluid nitrogen around the shell of the van (just underneath the tiles). The fluid nitrogen would be held in a holder within the van and upon dispatch and reentry, the nitrogen would be discharged through permeable into its framework so to chill off the temperature of the tiles and additionally the glue. This has as of now been attempted before however we feel that we can promote advance this strategy and chill off the tiles and cement on the van.

Slide 10

Our Plans for 2006-2007 Advance the ION Drive System Create another tile framework for the van Find a technique for cooling the tile framework for the van Construct a model of the cross breed configuration Enter our outline into various rivalries (held in Langley, VA)
