In the future UAVs or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles will operate fully autonomously and will be capable of super flight maneuvers, which no human pilot could withstand; we are talking about 18g Plus maneuvers here. But to turn an aircraft, any aircraft in such a super flight maneuver and during the departure realm of supersonic flight and transitional flight and back again, will require super light materials and extreme power to weight ratios, which are unheard of in present aerodynamics.
Are you scared of the future of aerial combat or US Military Aircraft? Well I am certainly not, number one, I am not a military pilot like my Dad and Brother so I do not fear my job and I am an American and have nothing to fear. It is the enemy which darn well better be in fear, not I or my Countrymen.
I propose that as new materials such as carbon nanotube construction become possible that we must increase our thrust potential and therefore propose a new innovative type of propulsion system. A CO2 Laser system, which will take the exhaust of the Stealth UAV and send it thru a tube aft the fuselage with a concave center shaped like a wide mouth hourglass.
As the exhaust makes its way thru the restrictive area it will further compress due to the venturi affect and then we blast it with high-energy laser light for a super explosive chemical reaction, propelling the aircraft. Additionally the tube behind the aircraft holding the molded hourglass center will become my thrust-vectoring device to keep the aircraft from skidding in super high gravity flight maneuvers. Consider all this in 2006.
