Curious that the Navy is working fusion and the Air Force anti matter.
I wonder if there's a particular reason.
The Navy remains unwilling to discuss them. At the same time, nearly every physicist we have talked to thinks all of these patents are beyond the realm of known physics and are almost laughable in terms of viability.
is the Navy building some sort of incredible craft based on science that remains foreign to the larger scientific community? Did they already do this years ago and are just slowly lifting the veil now? Are they clumsily trying to emulate what their pilots are seeing in the field, but can not yet fully explain? Could these patents just represent gross mismanagement of resources on the Navy's behalf? Or is this all some sort of elaborate disinformation play by the Navy—one that seems to have emerged right in step the rise of major peer-state competition from the likes of Russia and China, and the biggest expansion of advanced aerospace development programs in decades?
Amazing! Imagine the tech they are holding back.

Well its about time they upgraded. When even your jet fighters have a maximum air time of one or a few hours, boy are you in trouble.
But I would not get my hopes up to much.

But alas, no evidence need be provided that an invention will work in order to obtain a patent.
In the Foundation series fusion reactors are the size of walnuts.
