Still in 2 minds about whether there is a new materials led technological dawn on the horizon- ( by organisations that have military access to space) or whether the claims are just hyped to inflate share values.

Lots of questions about Lockheeds LENR in physics forums with the general consensus being one of hope but doubts around the maturation and timescales claimed.

Not related but I wondered if anyone with any materials interest/knowledge had spotted this story: Weapons Inventor Says U.S. Ripped Him Off

Did a search for Frank Trunk and found a patent relating to viscous elasticity and stress tensors but would be interested to know what kind of breakthroughs in " aircraft and ship stealth technology, submarine stealth technology and nuclear-weapon designs " were made in 1993 that could be described as "Nobel Prize winning".

( Realise these are the words of the claimants legal team BTW)

While I doubt the warnings to "watch his back", it wouldn't be the first time the military has classified something and later put it to use.

Buy Lockheed stock now.




Price of Lockheed stock is already very high in price. Unfortuanatly you would have to be a millionare to buy enough shares to make a significant return on investment. Takes lots of money to make money..

When you have lots of money, it doesnt take but only a few brain cells to make a lot more money. Those with brain cells and little money to invest do not fare well unless they buy shares of an IPO that sky rockets.

Theory would have to be pretty advanced to be Nobel Prize winning, but a commonality would be advanced calculational and analytical methods to design shapes for stealth (ray tracing & other interactions), basically fundamental wave scattering and fluid problems. (Nuclear weapon design is mostly about fluid mechanics and radiative transfer and exotic thermodynamics, not nuclear physics).

His published patent on viscoeleastic equations of motion (which I briefly looked at) is along similar lines and purports to give comprehensive solutions where published literature has more approximations and special case solutions. It isn't surprising that somebody which that kind of analytical physics capability would also work on related applications with similar structure. (Optical stealth & negative index of refraction?)

I don't quite see a Nobel Prize out of it, but who knows, if his methods lead to some profound understanding in an area which hasn't been solved well before that would be impressive. Theorists who get Nobels need to have experimental confirmation.

I don't understand why ONR would want to piss on this guy. If you have a mad genius, you do everything to keep him gruntled and making more genius. Maybe it would be amusing if AFRL hired him.

The "method of moments" is used for radar reflection analysis. It dates back to code developed at Lawrence Livermore Labs.
NEC

As far as I know, ray tracking is just the non-mathematical method of optical analysis (i.e. no matrices).

Ray tracing, fluid surface tensions, stealth etc. and we are back into Virtual vapor/ Plasmonics country!

I must admit that when I read the paper in question I immediately thought about Mike Muuss (RIP) and Paint The Night.
Paint the Night overview

Bigfatfurrytexan (who first drew my attention to Muuss) said this back in 2008:

"Now, if you consider the ability to create 'clouds' of vapor (each with a defined surface tension), you can see how the PTN technology could possibly evolve. Further that with airborne nano's (which can 'congeal' due to EM properties). Voila!!! "
