New electrically charged, polarized, proprietary alloys create thrust to lift small aircraft, commonly referred to as Personal Ultralight Vehicles (PAVs), without the need of a propeller, jet, balloon, or rockets. The ion electric air propulsion is considered a clean technology that has none of the carbon emissions or volatile fuels involved with combustion engines. A ground-based broadcast power system and onboard rectenna eliminates the need for onboard power storage and results in more lift range and higher payload.

The technology beams focus electrical power in an AC-to-DC conversion device. An extremely long propulsion ribbon is wound into disks, providing more lift than other ion propulsion designs. The technology, which features automated navigation control, creates an ionized atmospheric field around the aircraft.
