OTTAWA, Ontario, November 21, 1950
MEMORANDUM TO THE CONTROLLER OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS:
On the basis of theoretical considerations a small
and very crude experimental unit was constructed approximately a
year ago and tested in our Standards Laboratory. The tests were
essentially successful in that sufficient energy was abstracted
from the earth's field to operate a voltmeter, approximately 50
milliwatts. Although this unit was far from being self-sustaining,
it nevertheless demonstrated the soundness of the basic principles
in a qualitative manner and provided useful data for the design of
a better unit.
The design has now been completed for a unit which
should be self-sustaining and in addition provide a small surplus
of power. Such a unit, in addition to functioning as a 'pilot
power plant' should be large enough to permit the study of the
various reaction forces which are expected to develop.
We believe that we are on the track of something
which may well prove to be the introduction to a new technology.
The existence of a different technology is borne out by the
investigations which are being carried on at the present time in
relation to flying saucers.
I made discreet enquiries through the Canadian Embassy
staff in Washington who were able to obtain for me the following
a. The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United
States Government, rating higher even than the H-bomb.
b. Flying saucers exist.
c. Their modus operandi is unknown but concentrated effort is
being made by a small group headed by Doctor Vannevar Bush.
d. The entire matter is considered by the United States authorities
to be of tremendous significance.
