This paper will treat the latter of these. Theengine described here is suitable for either interstellar oratmospheric travel.This engine is of a dual-mode design; it will optionally produceeither gravitons or tachyons.ENGINE DESIGNThe engine or propulsion unit proper consists of six discreteelements (see fig. 1).1) the shield coil - required to protect the crew/inhabitantsof the ship from any harmful radiation. The shielditself is a high-power electromagnet operating in asteady state (DC).2) the exciter coil is in reality an auto-transformer,operating much li

This fieldis required especially in interstellar propulsion; tachyons can bevery ionizing and therefore destructive.The magnetic shield can me made by using large gauge wire (low gaugenumbers) and winding many turns.The gage of the wire is important here, as it will determine theamount of electrical current that the magnet can handle.If it is at all possible, the use of small diameter, insulatedcopper tubing may be used. By pumping coolant through the magnetlarger fields may be generated.On the outside of the shield magnet a material such as 'mu-metal' orsome other magnetic shielding should be used, so as to furthershield the operators from the engine.This sub-system is probably the most difficult to build. While theconstruction of the magnet itself is not difficult, the power supplymay be another matter.Electromagnets, by their nature, develop a field that isproportional to the amount of current (amperes) flowing throughthem. Thus it is important to build a power source that can not onlydevelop a sufficiently high voltage, but it must also supply therequired current. This power should be as close to 'pure' DC (directcurrent) as possible.
 
EXCITER COILThe exciter of the system is very much li

The higher the ratio the greater the voltagethat may be developed.Another important factor here is the impedance of the sub-system.Since this will be wor
