The reclaim energy system is targeting the forward edges of the aircraft/ vehicle. At supersonic plus speed
The high amount of air friction on the outside of the aircraft generates heat. This heat in places is of such an amount that it can be used to provide power to the engine. This is done in much the same way as the system within the engine. An amount of water is circulated from the forward edges of the aircraft to be heated to quickly generate steam, this steam is the used to provide a force to turn the front fan of the engine forcing more air through the engine. In turn this will help reduce the heat of the front edges of the aircraft/ vehicle allowing the use of more cost effective materials in supersonic aircraft such as aluminium instead of titanium. The water is made up of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen therefore it itself is also a lightweight material. The water being channelled will also add a structural strength and flexibility capability to the aircraft.
