The velocity of any sound wave depends on a certain ratio between elasticity and density, and for this ether or universal gas the ratio is 800,000,000,000 times greater than for air. This means that the velocity of the sound waves propagated through the ether is about 300,000 times greater than that of the sound waves in air, which travel at approximately 1,085 feet a second. Consequently the speed in ether is 900,000 x 1,085 feet, or 186,000 miles, and that is the speed of light.

"I consider this extremely important," said Mr. Tesla. "Light cannot be anything else but a longitudinal disturbance in the ether, involving alternate compressions and rarefactions. In other words, light can be nothing else than a sound wave in the ether."

And we all know who stormed in and confiscated all of his research right after his death. And we wonder what they did with it...
Hutchison has maintained a number of websites over the years, in which he posts videos and pictures of the purported effect, including short low-quality clips of objects flying around or rising from the ground, and metallic objects moving without being touched. He has offered mail-order VHS tapes of the effect for $100 each, though videos are now sold exclusively through Gryphon Productions.
....Hutchison and his supporters surmise that these phenomena arise from zero-point energy or the Casimir effect.
Researchers at NASA and the Max Planck Institute have attempted to reproduce some of Hutchison's experiments, but so far none has succeeded. Indeed, NASA's Marc Millis remarks that Hutchison himself appears unable to reproduce his own experiments. Hutchison claims that this is due to the destruction of his lab by the military, or because he has been otherwise prevented legally by the government from repeating his experiments.
In the documentary Free Energy: The Race to Zero Point, he states that military scientists were impressed with the effects, but were not able to replicate them on their own without assistance.
Hutchison claims that "at the end of the cold war" a "military intelligence service" (not otherwise specified) destroyed his lab in Vancouver while he was traveling in Europe. To support this allegation, Hutchison has presented photos of letters allegedly written by various scientific and government organizations, as well as a letter allegedly written by Hans-Adam II, Prince of Liechtenstein.

A "levitating" toy UFO. A line, said by critics to be string supporting the model, can be seen moving with the UFO at the top left of the screen.One set of videos posted to an antigravity website (and later taken down) shows closeups of a toy UFO bouncing around, and then shots of the toy gyrating wildly in the air. When it was pointed out that the movement of the toy was consistent with being supported by a string, and a moving wire or string could be seen in the video, Hutchison claimed it was a power supply.
In 2005, Hutchison admitted that he hadn't actually reproduced his effect since approximately 1991, though he says the earlier levitation footage from the 1980s is genuine.

According to some of my research, the U.S. Navy would be a good place to start looking for it...

The USA as the sole 'owner' of such a weapon would be invincible. Sorry, I don't accept it as "fact".

Absolutely, Tesla had an extraordinary mind. He would actually visualize his machines in his mind before building them, and test them there. When he was satisfied they'd perform as he'd conceive them, then he'd commit them to paper.
There was only one other genius who could do that: Mozart. He composed in his head; he hadn't given the score of the last movement of one of his symphonies to the concert master a few days before the performance, and when asked where it was, he tapped his skull. The day of the performance, he sat down and wrote out the scores for all the different instruments as if taking dictation--some 20-odd minute's worth. Incredible.
