This is a plasma flow from an electrohydrodynamic test bed for a coanda effect UAV (disk shaped) in research and development right now...

and this little gem...

- A peristaltic EHD plasma acceleration which gives an acceleration of the fluid, up to 480 m/s....

Oh really ?!?

Coanda plasma disk

Read through that whole lot, and marvel at this next bit...

Phase Three : Towards a Flapless ElectroAerodynamics UAV : Developpement of a true EHD Coanda effect and autonomous UAV which will use the knowledge and the experience aquired during the previous phases of this project.

With a such craft design, it is possible to build a dragless and stealth UAV based on the Coanda effect which uses the EHD plasma technology...

A DRAGLESS STEALTH UAV. and its all to do with the plasma... not so far fetched and pie in the sky now is it ??

then add vulcan engines to boot

yeah that pic was 1999 what would they be doing now???

awesome find

i was wondering if your OP plasma UAV
was related to ar just another report of the U of Florida professor

who has prototype designs of a plasma-propelled flying saucer
(the article describes it as a flying Bunt cake pan)

dtd 18 June '08,

it this isn't the same object or model, then enjoy the article
and try to figure out an aqequate power source to make the plasma to power the craft... this article says that magnitudes of power is required to make a plasma device fly.

? Might a array of remote lasers work, similar to beaming microwaves that heat up an object. and the combined laser energy would create an 'onboard' plasma to envelope the outside surfaces ??

Seems like they already have what they need, just a case of making it fit on their disk craft..

I love this guy, his total 'flipping the bird' to the big defense tech folks and showing us just how easy a disk craft could be built..

This dude deserves peoples support. His forum on yahoo is awesome.
