This is basically a remake of Thomas Townsend Browns earliest experiments when he was still working on the Brown/Biefield Effect (electrogravitics).
Strange that this technology doesnt appear in the scientific literature, and that younger generations of experimenters are "discovering it all over
again", even though it was originally developed in the 1920s.
People are wondering why this technology isnt taken more seriously and used in serious applications???
It was! In 1954, Project Winterhaven began, in a quest to develop an antigravity disk vehicle with Mach 3+ capability.
By 1952, Brown gave a demonstration to a Air Force major general in which Brown flew a pair of 18-inch disc airfoils suspended from opposite ends of a
rotatable arm. The discs were electrified with 50,000 volts and circuited at a speed of 12 miles per hour.
Approximately one year later, he flew a set of three- foot diameter saucers for Air Force officials and representatives from several major aircraft
These discs were energized with 150,000 volts, and sped around the 50-foot diameter course so fast that the subject was immediately classified. A
report by ``Interavia'' magazine noted that the discs would attain speeds of several hundred miles per hour when charged with several hundred
The secret to Brown's discs was that they were charged with a high positive voltage, via a wire, running along their leading edge. A high negative
voltage ran along their trailing edge, also on a wire. As the wires ionized the air around them, a study by Paul A. LaViolette said, a dense cloud of
positive ions would form ahead of the craft and a corresponding cloud of negative ions would form behind the craft.
LaViolette said that Brown's research showed that, like the charged plates of his capacitors, these ion clouds induced a gravitational force directed
in the minus to plus direction. In short, a gravitational well formed ahead of the disc which pulled the craft, while a gravitational hill formed
behind the craft and pushed it. As the disc moved forward in response to its self-generated gravity field, it would carry with it its positive and
negative ion clouds and their associated electrogravity gradient. The discs in effect would ride their advancing gravity wave much like surfers ride
an ocean wave, LaViolette said.
The occupants of one of the saucers, if there were occupants, would feel no stress at all no matter how sharp the turn or how great the acceleration,
LaViolette said. This was because the ship and is occupants and the load are all responding equally to the wavelike distortion of the local grsharp

Brown by 1952 had put together a proposal, code named ``Project Winterhaven,'' LaViolette said, which suggested that the military develop an
antigravity combat saucer with Mach 3 capability. As early as 1954, according to a report prepared by the private aviation intelligence firm Aviation
Studies International Ltd., the Air Force had begun plans to fund research that would accomplish Project Winterhaven's objectives.
That report, issued in 1956 and called ``Electrogravitic Systems: An Explanation of Electrostatic Motion, Dynamic Counterbary and Barycentric
Control,'' was originally classified as ``confidential.'' That report mentioned the names of more than 10 major aircraft companies which were
actively involved in the electrogravitics research in an attempt to duplicate or extend Brown's work.
