I would agree with you completely, until you get about 3/4 of the way through and you get to the paragraphs describing a method of operation of a
position-initiated gamma ray laser. Also, more likely it relates more to ICF research than weapons projects, hence why it's still out there.
You also don't find it just a little odd that the first patent is taken over by the USAF and a few months later he's at Wright-Patterson showing his
infamous PowerPoint? While I would agree that gamma would normally be a bad choice to potentially blast a pilot with, it does seem that it would be
great for for an unmanned craft that flies very high and stays aloft for long periods of time without needing a refuel. There is also this quote:
"Anti-electrons (“positrons”) occur naturally as a by-product of radioactive decay, e.g., radioactive sodium emits positrons. Positrons are
significantly less massive than an antiproton, so that their annihilation with electrons results in gamma ray emissions that are below nuclear
reaction thresholds, making such annihilation acceptable for use in close proximity to humans, and in the atmosphere."
I'm not sure how true this is, but seems like a credible claim.
