Star Technology and research (who owns this patent) has been involved in advanced technological research since it's foundation in 1998. They've done work for NASA, the Department of Defense, and the NIAC. Though I'm sure they've done work for DARPA i haven't seen it listed on their website.

The technology here in short, utilizes the same mechanism for power generation (energy utilization) and electrodynamic propulsion. (see Townsend brown's patents on my list).

Abstract: An electrodynamic structure having a periphery. The electrodynamic structure includes a power system, a plurality of collectors, a plurality of emitters, and conductive paths.

The plurality of collectors are disposed on the periphery of the electrodynamic structure and configured to collect electrons.

The plurality of emitters are disposed on the periphery of the electrodynamic structure and configured to emit electrons.

At least 20 percent of the periphery of the electrodynamic structure is utilized for electron collection and electron emission. The conductive paths are configured to conduct current between the power system, the collectors, and the emitters to provide at least one for power generation and electrodynamic propulsion.

Interestingly enough (found on the patent owners website at http://www.star-tech-inc.com ) is a device/research program that eliminates ElectroDynamic debris. I didn't realize there was such a large field for it! haha.

Enjoy your space cruise in the next 20 years!
