Advanced Vehicle and Engine Innovation is a startup based in aerospace that is interested in building prototypes for the industry. The startup was founded by Derek Boudreau and Guy Savage in Centreville, Virginia, United States.
Advanced Vehicle and Engine Innovation looks to develop advanced pulse detonation turbine prototype engines with the purpose for commercial airlines, military, and other organizations. The engines are designed to change the way fuel is burned in a turbine engine by introducing it in a novel pulse detonation arrangement that generates more thrust than conventional technology.
They have also designed options for a horizontal take-off and landing reusable launch vehicle aircraft such as their air-breathing turbine rocket engine. They look to develop their technologies for satellite launches and space tourism. Their engines use a flat fuselage and delta wing configuration for aerodynamic lift, and to reduce oxidizer consumption for obtaining low-Earth orbit. This winged design also allows for an aircraft to glide in the event of a power failure.
