Banshee Model One
This section is for the Milspec information and how to go from the mil spec to a derivative work based on the public domain parts that are Milspec. I am following the stoner M-16, AR-15 model as closely as makes sense.
Going from the milspec aerofoil or aeroframe, the parts need to be designed so that if people have different ideas for forking the body cladding, the interior metal runners that the cladding is attached to, the beams that the cladding is attached to. The truss beams attach to the structual beams. The interior mechinal parts and surfaces attach to the truss beams.
So I built the aerofoil concept from looking at cigar boats, sea planes, a dozen military jets and having fligth hours in a T-38 Trainer, F-104 starfire, and F-16cj block 52. Landing all of those really is not fun. I have driven cigar boats, bostin whalers, and a sailed a couple yatches. Those going over a wave hard hurts but a really hot aerospace craft coming and trying to land on run way just seems like a bad idea. The issue is what if it needs to go right back out? So I started looking at really fast cars and boats. Then I realized I plan to run air through the intakes to the turbines. So if the aerofoil is sitting in the water with the intakes able to open and close I can simply have it suck in water and air, creating the rooster tail of a cigar boat and use the wing body to creat just enough lift that the bottom of the aerofoil acts like a cigar boat, until it is air born or into the water depending on if it is speeding up or slowing down.
So that means that the basic design has to be public domain and then let companies build upon the basic concept. This covers things like contouring and wing body shape because the higher accerations require more structure not less weight. The design I built has far more thrust than any combination of material design I can find commerically avalible. The rib on the spine of the aerofoil was needed for a craft filled with vaccuum since the water vapor hitting the crew's body is half the gee force felt.
So I think the most practical design is bolted but I might be wrong. So I use the word attach. So a design could build on it by welding or bolting or gluing or whatever a company thinks can work, but if the design practical version fails to meet minium levels of safety then it is not milspec. The United States Department of defense is going to set the final level of what is actually required by the spec I am just covering what I put in public domain.
So the wire color coding is the basic design if more wires are needed they have to be visibily different than the wires listed. What goes down which wire that can be set later but the idea is to unified the wire color coding to the point it can be submited as a request for comments. This is so that if a section of wiring fails in space, it can be unattached at the bulkhead sections, and the same coloring wiring matched in place and have it work as it was before the wiring section fails. This is an eight section wiring design that is visiblily different in low lighting. There is a couple other variations of eight wire but none of them are the same. On of the worst things that can happen is running across a wire and having no idea where or what it goes to when fixing an airframe and having to remove all the outer panels to figure out what componets it goes to. What makes sense to me might not make sense across the board but if most designs are built with eight wires that are connected through the bulheads via a wire connector of some kind, that attached eight different types of wires the practical models that become compeditors for the United States Armed Services YF-37 variants. The design requires compressed gas that needs to be clearly set as to what a canister contains. Right now hospitals are the closest to uniform. Everyone seems to agree that a dark green color is oxygen, a bright red color is hydrogen, and medical air is yellow. I would include enamling any intake runs that come form the outside of the air frame to be yellow inside so that if an intake run is punctured you know that it has to be patched before re-entry. If using tempered glass rods to make sure they don't break as fiber optic cables you still use eight rods and use a push in latch that locks back like a bnc connector.

The concept is to have the cladding be built to attach down to metal runners so that they snap in place from the back and have the wind hit a uniform surface but in practice it may work better to simply have them attached down next to each other instead of sliding forward and being bolted down. The most important part to consider is the design needs to force the fluid body it is moving through be it water vapor or even freezing rain away from the lifting body and then fall back to the plume created by the heated fluid or plasma behind the afterburn or exit nozzle. The cladding has to deal with expansion and compression, since the pressure has to change. One thing I noticed is in looking at volcanos the granite or silocone iron alloys tend to not expand or contract much at all so drilling out granit cladding might work. Another option is high speed steel with signifacant amounts of cobalt to slow down the impact of hot and cold tempature extremes. Some companies my find that making it a foot thick with aircraft alimium works best and others may have a couple inch thick layer of M42 or M48. The idea is that cladding is able to deal with the contoured surfaces to slip stream air across it and deflect it away form the aerofoil, so that when the aerofoil goes from hard vaccum tempatures to warm water vapor it does not end coated in ice and drops like rock out of the sky. With the propellent exhausting water vapor this is really important in a cross draft wind.
So these have textures on them but the idea is to channel the air over the wing body and standing stuctures so that the air pulls the slow moving air away from the aerofoil while the faster moving air pulls in slow moving air to create more lift. The whole concept working together cuts the air ahead of the craft apart into different steams or channels of air around it and as it is no longer modifing the air the air is pushed into a rolling mass of water vapour the aerofoil's exhausting superheated water vapour pushes against. Remembering that cold air has more push the vee or vector of the air has to push harder since the air is moving in a bunch of directions while generally moving south of the aerofoil.
As you can see the fluid body be it air or water vapor or
other fluid. Yes I know normally water vapor
is thermodyanamics but if you treat it as a spare
fluid you get more consistant results in most
Anway as you can see the air is deflected using the
shape of the wing surface and standing control surfaces
they don't move and have to be thicker to channel
air or water vapor across them at high speed but the
two ruders are designed to move with two parts the
whole surface and the tips both part which can move
to controll spin along the spine of the aerofoil.
Note this is an earlier version, while I was paying autodesk a subscribtion fee.
due to fincial costs I had to put the subscription on hold, I have the maya
askii files and texure and bifrost simultion data, not all that I needed but
enough to make sure it was still working the way I designed it.
I opened the askii file and copied over the point space cloud data to a
notepad++ unicode text file and it has almost seventeen million lines of
code, about half of which is not material to the design of the cladding surface.
The joystick and throttle body I can post the next time I have extra money
to spend on what is really a hobby for me. The design has taken so long
to model based on how atmospheric fluids actually move across a lifting
body that I can only budget so much of my entertainment budget to it.
So the jump seats are placed ahead of a command dec line.
I have no idea if they are a good idea since they are observered type seats but the observers would have to have the training not to cause a problem becasue of unbalanced weight. The mass of aerofoil counters some of the equal and opposite reaction due to body and space suit mass. The shower in the center is for emergencies and way to access the pressurized gas canisters that store the fuel and enviromental systems. The idea being that different options require different frame work but the frame work I built to handle the weight of cladding sheering is what is simply good idea to try but the actual frame work to support the siholette should not be stifled becasue I came up with one idea. The stairs or later for the navy types is along the spine of the craft so that everything is balanced across the craft as closely as possible.
The thrust pit is a clam shell that wrappes around the turbines which while the concept calls for brushless electromagicticly spun or denotate of minus fifty degree ionized hydrogen and oxygen mixing with eight five degree or hotter air from an intake or combustion or electic heater. The different of about
one hundred fifty degrees causes the pure oxygen and hydrogen with extra ions floating around to mix with stable medical air and super cooled flammable gas to explode to start the turbines spinning. Either way the design that I came
up with to drive the aerofoil shape forward through atmosphere and vacuum should not interfere with people working on alternative internals. The physics of how to get stable thorium into a reactor into electric to crush the neutron clouds into electrons that can be pulled off fan spinning up the turbines with either a brushless motor or magnetic armature piston,
the air hitting the turbines is mixed to create a mass of water vapor that is blow out the thrust pit into the vacuum or atmosphere to blow outward in a sonic boom which can be pushed agaisnt with the next bit of water vapor exting the thrust pit. The spacing of the thrusters is based on air outside the thrust pit and the way air moved inside the thrust pit based on spinning the turbines all in to the center.
In the smooth shaded models are the best concepts out to work a weapons system with the least amount of sheering on the direction of travel. Having canisters of hydrogen or oxygen or medical air to vent flammable gas towards an object on a dangerous terminal vee, allows for a bean bag approach or simply buzzing the ship that needs to move out of the way of city. The lasers are an idea I was working with
based off maser technology but they are kinda expensive energy usage. Again the point is to get enough of the design to built a working group of aerofoils to defend the united states of american and if other countries are looking at this to provide a simalar way to make sure that if people are spending time arguing over who gets to make money off the concepts instead of making money actually building the things people
are going to look up one day again and say so four minutes... hummm.
I should probablly mention if people are going to start building them the bottom strakes are actually hydrofoil damns... which means that unlike a hydrofoil with the damns off the rails they are on the wing
body so that when it starts to lift up it lurchs out of the water and is then under aerospace concepts not hydrofoil concepts.
Above you can see the reactor bed and the gas canisters that bring in
various gases into a reaction chamber to create the super cooled fluid
that when mixed with a radio isotope creates dense isotopes that bleed
off eletric as they are run over copper plated nickle iron coils. The gas
boils off in a chamber at the back of this design due to the direction of
movement but it could be to one side. I did not clarify the design above
because there are stuctural elements in it that I assumed would be tested
first then built. The canisters are actually a vapor chamber canister inside
a thick tempature wall so that the gas is still super cooled when it goes into the manifold or mixing chamber. Everything is to scale but does not
include thickness becasue I migth say make the plates eight inches thick
someone else might say four inches and another person a foot thick.
The concept is it works this way but there may be ways to improve upon
the concpets here. Like using nexrad instead of a saber system or a
translucent nose cone instead of glass cooling and harding on the metal
blocks to be stock removed to create bolts capable of handling more
sheering force than a two inch long screw thiner than my finger.
This render shows transparncy were the
tailid plate is so it can be seen how the
spacing ended working out.
The control flaps, ruders, elevators or
ailerons still not sure which they count
as considering they move at an angle
diangle to the travel of the air over them
and have two claws on each part to control
feathering. They are designed so one up
and one down spin the craft and gas can
vent over them while in space when there
is no atmosphere to push against.
The green piece is the ruder and the space
around it is inset into the wingbody so that
the edge that is the point of failure has less
stress on it and the craft can vent gas in
space from above or below with less loss
of control. The gas vented pushes against
that huge tail piece and the lower
hydrodamns as they move through the
This is slightly more complex than it looks.
In a normal two engine aircraft the the plane turns by
appling more power to one engine and more force applied
by one side pushes one side like taking longer strides
too much power and the plane goes into a tail spin.
Since the control surfaces are unable to do more than
change the shape of the wing body the aircraft become
an iregular surface and most pilots know to kill the
engines and let the plane drop hoping to control the
way it moves once there is air mocules moving across
in more expected maner.
I looked at how sand moves across the desert for about
six months for eight hours a day interspaced with looking
at cloud movement and other air movement staring at
the weather data, while forecasting for western conus.
Once thing that is crazy to watch is the how the sand
moves on really high resolution satellite images.
So I realized I needed a pnumatic chamber that the engines
exhaust into. This gives me more control as spinning up an
engine literally pushes agaisnt the inside of the chamber so
that instead of focusing on pushing against the air outside
the chamber the inside the afterburner for lack of better word
is pushing equally against both side of the chamber when
both main turbines are spinning inward and when one spins
up it pushes that side like a car drifting, spin one side down
and your speed goes down while causing the other side to
act as if it was speeding up. This allows finer control than
would be possible with seperate engines. As the turbines
are your control surfaces in space and in atmosphere they
exhert more force than the air moving over a normal flight
surface. The turbines in the center are used to control
the postive pressure up and down. There are other ways
to do this as I got to see on the eighteenth but this is
the best method I came up with years ago. The ruddars
or sails are designed to move at angles to the air moving
across so to allow a motion more like tacking into the
wind and to allow the the exhaust ports above and below
the sail surfaces to exhert force on them even in space.
When they move in opposite directions the force applied
spins the craft along the axial of travel this can stabalize
even iregular movement much like an putting english on
a pool bal or spin on an american football. Which is why
the upright tails have such a weird shape. They are designed
to keep the air moving across them moving in arcs. While
the hydrodamns are designed to raise the craft up into
the air then stablize the flight. When the craft spins along
the axial of travel the the direction of spin causes air along
that side to compress and the air in the other direction to
expland. This makes is less effort to spin the other way
and to stablize on a level flight path even upside down.
Oh everyone likely laughs at the bell chamber that creates
the after burner shape. That create a slip stream and
when the sublimination vapour mixes with hot gas the
walls of the chamber are thick enough to channel the
exploding gas behind the after burner instead of back
into the craft. It is why design has an area of negitive
pressure that can bleed off superheated gas off the
bell chamber while having the acceration of the craft
drive the hot gas back into the bell, then twisting it
using slipsteam into the plume which looks like a
bunser burner flame if built correctly.
Originall I assumed the easist way to control this was to use electrically spun impellers. So that air
moving through them would pick up spin and force. Basically use a huge anoid to add current and
that way spinning them down or up would not be adding or taking away fuel but controlling how
fast or slow by pushing or pulling the spin with electro magnets. Thus the the anode the size of
pick up truck bed or larger. Later I realized while this might be smoothest method the wear on
even glass coated alloys might be harsh. So designs with gearing might work better in some cases.
that said if you use the sublimation method when the fuel (hydrogen trixoxide and NOS) is used to break
inertia you really want to be able to speed up or slow down without eating gearing. The sublimation is
going to attempt to freeze the gearing as the heated gases are going to denotate the gas into a very
sudden spin up of the turbines. Pretty much you want to be already moving and aimed in the direction
you want to be moving in which is why I designed them to work as hydrofoils so they can be hours
out from land when they do a loop de loop to spray water vapor in a collumn of air beneth them which
when the craft is at the apex of the second loop facing away from the water the craft can go from
basic sucking air through to denoting it. Due to the design the water vapor will vaporize, which creating
an equal and opposite reaction pushes agaisnt the wate which when pushing this way is the same as
hitting it too fast much like concrete due to surface tension as the air mocules basically slap the water
and bouce back up at the aerofoil. The wing shape feathers them off deflecting most of the force so the
wings don't sheer right off but it is much like getting tossed into space. This is part of the reason the
wing bodies are thicker. The afterburner will push a sonic boom behind it further accerating the craft
along the direction of travel.
The wire frame to the side and below is color coded version. There are
many weird forced angles but they work like permenatly fixed ailerons
and control surfaces.
The dark blue almost purple in color is the anode bank. It is basically
one large anode because originall the idea was to have the turbine
speed controlled by electric magnets and to speed up or slow them
down being able to dischange an anode coil wrapped over nonconductive
poles to strech out to over a hundred feet long I figured would provide
plenty of power to draw off of.
