The Freedom aerospace plane uses our revolutionary turbine air-breathing rocket engine to greatly reduce fuel and oxidizer needs for flight. The engine uses an air scavaging rocket, a fuel efficient turbofan, along with aerodynamic lift from the flat fuselage winged body to revolutionize travel to space into a safe and affordable system beating vertical launch systems. The Space Shuttle Launch Stack uses approximately 2.8 millions pounds of fuel by 126 seconds from launch reaching around 160,000 feet altitude at which point the large solid rocket boosters are jettisoned. Our aerospace plane concept, Freedom, can reach the same altitude and speed while using only a quarter of the fuel, significantly increasing payload capacity while decreasing launch costs. In addition, Freedom could potential take off from any major airport and return to the same making space tourism more accessible with much less capital investment. Safety is built into the design with the winged concept which allows it to function as a glider in the event of multiple engine failure. The on-board turbine engines enable Freedom to enjoy a powered return to its destination on its way back from orbit.
Never before with any aerospace design has there been the combination of safety, efficiency, and versatility for a reusable launch vehicle in the satellite, astronaut, or
space tourism markets. AVEI has the technological designs to achieve the extraordinary and with your help ... can.
The Freedom engines are an air breathing multi-cycle design that enables it to operate from subsonic to hypersonic speeds while ingesting atmospheric oxygen. This reduces the oxidizer load needed for Freedom to obtain LEO. In addition, the multicycle design reduces weight, volume, and parts for the vehicle enabling greater performance. The engines are designed to have an easily replaceable high temperature and pressure ceramic outer shell on the engine nozzle which will be economically replaced when needed.
The Freedom Aerospace Plane concept is the most advanced orbital launch vehicle design in the world today. None of the current competitor designs have the versatility or performance offered to you by Freedom. A half scale (120+Ft (37+M)) Freedom demonstrator could be built for $65 million. It would be a two engine design capable of achieving LEO which would make it by far the fastest plane ever built. In addition it could serve as a launch platform for small and micro satellites competing with Firefly and Orbital’s Pegasus XL. Operating the half scale Freedom design as a small satellite launcher would enable quicker returns on investment while providing the demonstrator technology for the full scale Freedom. Like full scale Freedom, the ½ scale demonstrator could fly anywhere in the world under turbine power to launch satellites in more favorable orbits or launch from a specific country. It would allow small satellite manufacturers to be the primary payload and not have to be a secondary one with a less desirable orbit on a larger launch ticket containing multiple satellites.
