In-game description:
"Advanced propulsion technology for medium-sized spacecrafts.

This engine technology is based upon fusion reactions and particle acceleration technology. The vented plasma from the engines can then be used for propulsion or be redirected to power grid for use in other ship systems.

Additional research provides a 20% speed boost per level for spaceships that use impulse drives.

Ships that utilize this technology include: Heavy Fighters, Cruisers, Bombers and Colony Ships."

Also affected by Impulse Drive are Super Freighter and Large Recovery Vessel.
