Supersonic Magnetic Advanced Generation Jet Electric Turbine (S-MAGJET)
described herein, and a subsonic derivative, MAGJET, integrate a gas power turbine, superconducting electric power and propulsion generation, and magnetic power flux field systems along with an ion plasma annular injection combustor which utilizes alternative petroleum-based fuel and combustion cycles to create a hybrid turbine turbomachine for aerospace propulsion. The propulsion unit is able to achieve a dramatic increase in horsepower, combustion and propulsion efficiency, and weight reduction. In addition, the turbomachinery structures may be disposed within an exo-skeleton architecture that achieves an increase in thrust to weight ratio with a concomitant increase in fuel efficiency and power generation over traditional gas turbine technology today. The engine continuously adjusts the temperature, pressure and mass airflow requirements using an electromagnetic power management system architecture. Engine performance may be controlled across the entire desired flight envelope, whether subsonic, transonic or supersonic flight conditions.
S-MAGJET as described herein also generates excess electric power. In the 54,700 lb. thrust class, which is 41,000 shaft horse power, the engine is able to generate 30.5 megawatts electric power, from the standpoint of the engine operating at cruise conditions, e.g., Mach 3.4 and 70,000 feet on a standard day, and in which 7.0 megawatts are reserved for running any of the onboard electrical needs of the aircraft, from aircraft health monitoring, guidance and control, avionics, electrical flight control systems to sensor arrays in military applications.

Makes you wonder if the Green Lady's engine tech is about to go white.

Hi all. Normally I read ATS for pleasure rather than to interrupt. But yesterday I was reading about "VTOL Black Triangle UCAV Concept"
a thread started by intelgurl way back in 2006 here on ATS, briefly a combination of RR Turbofan type engine and electric powered fans.(Mach 6-7 possible) so "This particular vehicle concept could match the "best of both worlds".
One problem was finding enough electrical power.
Reading this latest post I notice that "S-MAGJET as described herein also generates.... excess electric power".
Could the two be linked in some way.
(I appreciate a Turbofan is not going to power a craft to Mach 6, so I suppose other power sources would have been involved.)

Paragraphs 140-149 are of interest.
Discusses drawback of hall effect acting like a break on exhaust gasses (at the MHD generator stage ) and how they may be able to get around that possibly.
My question is if your extracting energy from the exhaust wouldnt that potentially kill the thrust a little?
