Our current X Craft technology is 100% homegrown. It was first conceptualized by Nikola Tesla in 1889, and was later refined in the 1920s by Thomas
Townsend Brown. In the 1950s, Brown sold the USAF on his technology, which is where they started research, development and production of anti-gravity
aircraft with Project Winterhaven.
And there is also one home-grown American scientist who apparently had some input into the U.S. government's flying saucer project--T. Townsend
Brown, and his Project Winterhaven.
Brown was an American physicist, who was heavily involved in electrogravitics research. In the middle 1920s, he discovered it is possible to create an
artificial gravity field by charging an electrical capacitor to high voltage.
By 1958, he had managed to work his way to the point where he had succeeded in developing a 15-inch diameter model saucer that could lift over 110
percent of its weight. What his experiments had inaugurated was the new field of electrogravitics, or the technology of controlling gravity through
the use of very high voltage electric charges.
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.
I started this thread regarding a lot of information about domestic production of antigrav X Craft.
