1. POSITRON ENERGY CONVERSION
The modern Air Force runs on energy. The service has been using various forms of chemical energy to accomplish its objectives for the 50 plus years of its existence. Recent advances in physics are opening the door to a new realm of energy usage based on the famous E = mc2 relationship. Mass conversion to energy provides the densest source of energy known. Exploration of the possibilities of applying this source of energy storage to solving the Air Forces' problems is important and primary to accomplishing future goals. Whether in the form of antimatter research (positron production, containment and conversion) or in the area of advanced energetics, new, innovative, and efficient sources of energy are a must for future war fighting.

Just read the pdf outlining the program. Wow... just thinking these are the types of projects being worked on. Makes the B21 / F22 seem almost laughable.
