A NEW TRANSDUCER TECHNOLOGY
The Field Reactor is a new transducer technology which works as a propellantless electromagnetic thruster, a linear electric motor, and as a generator, producing a controllable directional resistance to an external force while harvesting energy from a moving system. It has been invented to solve many well known problems and will undoubtedly find countless novel applications as it is highly scalable in size and power.

Field Reactors use the same principles as other electric motors, where a current in a coil on the rotor creates a magnetic field which exerts a force on a magnetic field from the the stator. In a Field Reactor the field coil of the rotor is replaced with a cloud of electrons, accelerated in a cavity to form a vortex circulating around the axis of the device to give thrust along the axis.
Commercial applications include propulsion and attitude control for spacecraft and any other system in which a directed force or a damper or shock absorber is required where there is an advantage to not being limited by the distance over which the device can work. A Field Reactor will produce a thrust or resist acceleration for as long as it is powered.
