Oscar Viñals has submitted his latest attempt to design a futuristic hyper plane, HSP “Magnavem”. You can read his complete explanations about this project below.
Imagine we are in a century that we could define like “the great change”, it’s not sci-fi… this 21st Century we could find as “familiar” words and definitions like, Nuclear Fusion Reactor, AI systems (Artificial Intelligence), Plasma devices, Nano structures of Graphene, Supercapacitors, nanocomposites or Gallium Nitride semiconductors/power converters, and many more as… it is coming. This represents the beginning of a New Era on Aerospatiale & Aeronautic Industries.
Based on these new and revolutionary expectations, the HSP “Magnavem” was born (Magna Avem – “Big Bird”), a Hyper Shape Plane (like today’s definition of “Hypercars” that is the Top/Maximum definition of a car in all its best aspects) that “would fly to the encounter with the fourth state of matter”. The airplane would be itself a big wing with a delta shape and equipped with the best technology and solutions of this 21st Century.
Meet the HSP “Magnavem”. As a principal power source, the HSP “Magnavem” will be equipped with a Compact Fusion Reactor (CFR-portable) that will power the Hybrid engines, electric airplane systems, CO2 cleaner system & to charge the airplane’s batteries.
Thanks to two Ramjet Engines, the HSP “Magnavem” by Oscar Viñals would fly at a maximum speed of Mach 1.5 (1,852 kph), these engines would turn on when the airplane would reach a speed of over 890 kph (Hybrid Engines) and an altitude of 15,400 m. These engines would be fueled by Hydrogen fuel (H2) and would have a vectoring nozzle system that would give it much more control & capacity of maneuver during the supersonic speed flight. The inlet diffuser of the Ramjet Engines would be located under the airplane’ fuselage.
The airplane would be equipped by an AI system (Artificial Intelligence) that would control and optimize the plasma actuators function, thanks to analyzing and processing all the data received from the actuators’ sensors (pressure, temperature, airflow speed, etc), from the nose of the airplane with the Micropulse coherent Doppler lidar system (could predict the wind turbulence strength in order to prevent “dangerous vibrations” that could affect the stability of the airplane. The aircraft could detect areas of turbulence including a new method that allows estimating the intensity of turbulence in the atmosphere at a distance in a clear sky) and with another source of data, like a 3d microwave radar that will report altitude, as well as azimuth and target distance, or inform about atmospheric situation in real time with 3d image.
HSP “Magnavem” is equipped with four oversize Hybrid Engines (Electric-Hydrogen fuel) in order to fly at subsonic speed and also to be very quiet, reducing the airplane noise up to minimum levels than current airplanes. These would be powered from battery storage or directly from the CFR, through the power converters made from Gallium Nitride and also fueled by Hydrogen (plasma chambers).
One of the most novel ideas/concepts of this plane would be the CO2 cleaner system, located on the rear part of it. This only would function in the approach maneuver and thanks to be powered by electric energy from the CFR (Compact Fusion Reactor), could split up the CO2 into carbon, hydrogen and oxygen with a thermoelectric process at very high temperature and water (air). The idea is not to “hijack” the CO2 from the atmosphere is split it in great amounts and release the result components on the atmosphere again.
HSP “Magnavem” could have two decks with a capacity for 500 passengers, a Super Tourist class with modular system that could accommodate between 280 to 360 seats with a generous “personal space” between them, a First class and Business class for 140 seats; with amazing views over their heads of the sky and all imaginable luxuries, like private suites, washrooms, spa, virtual reality, etc. The ceiling of the 2nd deck could be made of glass with nanotechnology capable to change its opacity (electrochromic) and act as solar cells (Quantum dots).
