Michael Waters is an advanced technology consultant, researcher, inventor and sustainable recovery strategist. He has previously owned businesses in, designed and built: multi-axis robotics, adaptive manufacturing systems, experimental aircraft, custom homes, portable housing systems. Michael's automated disaster recovery and library preservation systems are used worldwide at institutions such as the Library of Congress, the National Archives and the Russian Academy of Sciences, instrumental in recovery of the worst library fire disaster of the last century.
In the last fourteen years Michael has researched cutting edge science, technologies and their potential synergistic impact. This has helped established a large collaborative network of researchers and breakthroughs that profoundly affect fields of energy, mining, health, food, water, transportation, housing, sustainable economics and environmental recovery. The purpose of this research has been to discover causes of and solutions for the increasing number of global crises we are dealing with.
A primary focus has been energy R&D, working with a diverse group of breakthroughs that combined, uncover new understandings in physics. These discoveries also explain why current global business and environmental models are fundamentally unsustainable. Michael is currently on the board of a number of organizations involved in advanced energy, mining, agriculture and finance and directly involved in developing a number of energy breakthroughs. Michael's inventions span diverse fields including energy, robotics, fluidics, conservation, aviation and housing
Mike has built a number of different types of aircraft and also flown over 200 different aircraft including general aviation, experimental, low wing, high wing, midwing, bushplanes, seaplanes, hang gliders, ultralights, paragliders, microlights, biplanes, aerobatic, taildraggers, trikes, twins, autogyros, helicopters. A competition sailplane pilot for over 12 years.
MCAS (Moldless Composite Aircraft System) has advantages over both aluminum and composite wing manufacturing. This enables many aircraft wing structures to be lighter, stronger and built in less time than current aluminum or composite approaches.
3D valvular conduit - an improvement of Nicola Tesla's original valvular conduit design, this one way fluidic valve and combustion chamber has many potential applications.. This increases effectiveness by an order of magnitude over the original invention.
Currently co-developing an advanced peripheral jet liquid turbine suitable for both power generation and transportation.
The Vision VTOL was designed around a number of recent advances in electric energy storage and power density. It was realized that these breakthroughs would enable a long range wingless electric aircraft with vertical takeoff capability, effectively making wings redundant. This results in a significant reduction in complexity and cost while increasing reliability and safety over wings and conventional fuel based power systems.
