Ion-Powered Aircraft: One Step Closer to Non-fossil Fuel Solutions
Ethan Krauss, founder and President of Electron Air, LLC, has a dream: to create the first Ion and electron wind powered craft to carry its power source onboard.
To date, Ethan's prototype designs have demonstrated flight times exceed those of a helicopter of similar weight, with nearly silent flight.
His goals and objectives are:
Design an improved autonomous electron/ ion wind powered craft.
Serve the need for an improved, fast, and efficient form of flight
Commercialize and increase performance
Proof of sufficient and efficient sustained lift
The Ion-Powered Aircraft is the first invention supported by a Stardust micro-grant. We are thrilled to be part of this effort to find renewable, zero-emission power sources!
Ethan was awarded the US patent on November 6th, 2018. The Stardust-Startup Factory respects the intellectual property "confidentiality" agreement we have signed with the inventor.
