The Focus:

Although the Trammel is not complete, we feel that Stclairtech R&D needs to turn some of its focus back to

 the PIE system where some of the biggest strides and "breakthroughs" have been made.

*** *** ***

The PIE 5.0:

With that in mind, the next logical step is to design the PIE 5.0.

Most of the PIE 5.0's individual components are basicaly "off-the-shelf" parts which are 

rigorously tested before being approved for integration.

It is a bit too early to go into too much detail, as the design is still very "fluid" and is 

subject to change on a daily basis.

*** *** ***

The PIE 5.0 concept:

The Idea of the PIE 5 series is to eliminate some of the weaknesses of the earlier PIE

systems while making the forward thrust stronger than ever before.

*** *** ***

A Few Design Details:

So, we are designing this with no sun gear, no SDC, no center pin, no impacts, and no "stops". 

Since there is no "sun" gear, the outer rotating assembly will be known as a "satellite" rather

than a "planet".

The "satellite" will be electrically activated creating the need for a 

rotating connector to feed electrical power to the "on-wheel mechanics" of the PIE 5.0

it will also counter-rotate or rotate in the opposite direction of the main wheel

that it is mounted on.

*** *** ***

Project Outlook:

The outlook for the PIE 5.0 is very good. A number of other major design changes have been

tested and rejected, either due to complexity or functionality.

If this works as well as the early tests indicate that it will,  it will make the sun gear driven PIEs

into obsolete "training aids" to teach the primary principals of functional

Closed Loop Inertial Propulsion (CLIP)!

POP Test "0"

(Proof of Principal = "POP")

The idea was a "gyro" (motor) being moved against its precession can produce thrust...

 **It did **

POP Test "1"

Setting up the "activator arm" it was found that some thrust could be created without the gyro...

Using a motor only for weight...

It was found that the weight needs to be staged in the correct position for the next activation to be truly effective...

Numerous attempts were made to direct the staging event...

It was decided that we need a "brake" to stop it then release...

So we started working on electrical controls... Simple relay circuits that can be connected to trip switches...

For electrical controls to be effective

we need reliable power fed to the rotating "platen" (table top) of the wheel... 

This brush set is designed for use in windmill applications...
