Magnocraft propulsion system.
Illustrated are: "M" - single main thruster producing repulsive interactions "R" from the ambient magnetic field (denoted by "M" from the English word "main"); "R" - repulsive interaction force ("R" is adopted from the English word "repulsion"); "U, V, W, X" - eight side thrusters (labeled "U, V, W, X" to show their mutual phase shifts every 90 degrees) oriented to produce "A" attractive interactions with the ambient magnetic field; "A" attractive interaction forces ("A" is adopted from the English word "attraction"). Note that in particular types of Magnocraft the number "n" of side propulsors is described by the equation (G6) and (G2): n = 4(K-1). Thus, the number of n=8 side propulsors is possessed only by the K3-type Magnocraft (for which K=3). Each of the propulsors of the propulsion system shown here contains a single twin-chamber capsule (formed from a smaller inner chamber inserted inside a larger outer chamber - see Figure F5 below) mounted in a spherical housing. By properly synchronizing the field pulsations produced by the individual side thrusters, such a propulsion system can produce a rotating magnetic field.
Symbols: N - the north magnetic pole (i.e. the "inlet" (I) pole as explained in subsection G5.2. of monograph [1/5]), S - the south magnetic pole (i.e. the "outlet" (O) pole as explained in subsection G5.2. of [1/5]), 1 - the supporting structure that connects the individual propulsors together, d - the diameter of the circle passing through the central points (i.e. the geometric centers) of all side propulsors; thus "d" represents the maximum distance between the magnetic axes of any two side propulsors located on opposite sides of a given propulsion system. d - diameter of the circle passing through the central points (i.e. geometrical centers) of all side propulsors; thus "d" also represents the maximal distance between the magnetic axes of any two side propulsors located on opposite sides of a given propulsion unit (this dimension "d" vital for the Magnocraft is called the "nominal diameter"; "d" can be measured because it represents the diameter of the ring scorched on the ground by the side propulsors of the landing Magnocraft - see Img.082 (G33) in [1/5]); h - height of the main propulsor's center above the plane of the side propulsors' bases; R - magnetic repulsion force, A - magnetic attraction force.
