Archo-Thrusters are electrical thrusters with archium in them. when an electrical current is passed through archium it pushes against the archaic field, which generates thrust.
Archons are subatomic particles that have been manipulated by a strong archaic field.
The archaic field could be thought of as an all-permeating quantum field, like the higgs field... except it rarely interacts with ordinary matter.
The wings on the ceptorylis cursor also count as Archo-Thrusters, though they are called rylae wings and they operate on a similar principle, but differently shaped.
Archo-Thrusters can be built completely inside a machine since it is pushing on the archaic field itself.
