CGI BULLSHIT ALERT>US Navy Tests Iron Man-Like Jetpacks>Gravity Industries showcased their Iron Man-like jetpacks at a field training exercise earlier this month in Virginia Beach, Virginia.>Gravity worked with the Joint Prototyping and Experimentation Maritime program at Naval Surface Warfare Center to conduct multiple mock exercises with the jetpacks, including rapid transit from shore-to-sea and sea-to-shore missions. https://www.zerohedge.com/military/us-navy-tests-iron-man-jetpackshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkZPI5m9SIE
I'm not sure who the fuck is in charge now in the globohomo matrix, but the video shown is an insult to any inquisitive person's intelligence.
The specs are totally out of touch regarding of weight and range, not to mention the 4 jets' momentum at the soldiers arms, which would make the flight totally unstable as flesh arms are not suitable for such a controlled fit. Not to mention the jets' blast burning grass, pants, and even the pick-up truck where the CGI pilot landed.
So watching one from five years ago the hard part is lifting the engines to a wide angle.
When it's dangling it's like leaning on a chair. Also discussed is that the air rapidly cools in proximity, as high temperature goes to low temperature and rises.
Also a different video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qT2gWg4AWg
Also the video just posted is a recent one.
This one in this post is from 2017.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vI8E4cda_ww
The quick rundown is you too can make your own jetpack as most of the new frontier stuff is already done.
Jetpacks can be a very simple thing to make, depending on the desired goals.
Jetpack man, the guy who does all the jetpack stuff in movies for a long time, uses a monopropellant. Hydrogen Peroxide is pushed through a series of ceramic and silver screens which turn it to steam and oxygen, giving thrust.
Very very simple design and there is no open flame. If I recall correctly the ISP (specific impulse) is around 120sec for such a setup.
If used as a hybrid rocket, ISP should jump to about 2-3x that (250-360) without much more effort.
(I havent watched any of the videos, just making a comment about typical "jetpacks", with knowledge on rocket engine design)
Looks believable enough to me, and looks really cool too. Can't deny it.
It's a lot cooler than the drones and armed robots we've been seeing last decade.
