Wingless Electromagnetic Air Vehicle (WEAV)

The WEAV is a vehicle which is propelled by a plasma (ionized gas) discharge, requires no moving parts and provides near-instantaneous response.  The vehicle operates in atmospheric pressure and is capable of 360° maneuverability.  The key to the success of the project is to reduce the ratio of power to vehicle weight while significantly increasing the thrust generation capabilities of the plasma discharge.
