The LFPT is a technology patented by Jean-Claude Lafforgue and uses electrostatic forces to generate a thrust on an isolated system. Such a revolutionary system is able to move in full space vacuum by using an asymmetrical electrostratic pressure acting on a specially shaped device.
The text below, is an english translation of the main part of the Lafforgue's patent about his theory. We have done some minor changes and improvements about the calculation of the thrust, they are now a bit more accurate.
