INDRA project development prize


The INDRA institute, a think tank sponsored by Gravitational Systems Engineering inc., a prominent US military contractor based in Alexandria Va, announces a $25,000 prize for the development of a gravity powered engine based upon, patent pending, vetted company designs.

Gravity power is the next big thing in the alternative energy field.  Gravity has been used for centuries to generate power from flowing water via dams.  Gravity is the always available energy source when compared to solar, wind or fuel based combustion.  Fundamental gravity powered devices like the siphons, low head hydro, or the reverse Archimedes screw,  employ gravity as a power source, yet gravity as a power source has languished when faced with progress in other forms of power.

Gravity powers the strongest forces on the planet, wind, rain, and weight itself, yet our science and technology view this energy source as untamable, almost mystical.  The GSE VTD engine is a step towards replacing expensive solar and wind generator and polluting fuel based combustion.

A gravity engine operates by maintaining a concentrating cycle of gravity events.  Electrical energy is inductively harvested from the constructed height and depth employing optimized materials and forms.  The VTD engine was invented by GSE head engineer, Garee Henderson, Ph.D..

The INDRA institute, working towards our goals of increasing the fresh water supplies of the planet, is sponsoring this competition since we see the gravity engine as an enabling technology.

This competition will bring the winning development team to international prominence, and perhaps a place in future history books.  An efficient design, which is easy to construct with local materials, will quickly be replicated in millions of backyards and basements around the world.

The international competition starts April 8, 2017, and runs until October 1, 2017.  The challenge is to construct and efficient version of the company’s VTD engine.  The VTD engine can be constructed of inexpensive materials including wood, plastic and copper wire.

The competition is designed to both advance gravity powered technology, to a level competitive with solar or wind-powered generators, and to promote the use of the gravity engine technology across the globe.  The VTD engine is an induction generator that provides both kinetic and electrical power and can provide sufficient off-grid power to operate a western home when constructed at a scale similar to a wind or solar generator of similar output.

The free competition materials include design guidelines and extensive engineering notes that will aid the competitor in completing their entry with minimal cost.   Materials grants are available to university-based entrants.  A significant engineering GSE R&D contract may be available to the winning teams.
