Under United States law, a patent is a right granted to the inventor of a (1) process, machine, article of manufacture, or composition of matter, (2) that is new, useful, and non-obvious. A patent is the right to exclude others from using a new technology. Specifically, it is the right to exclude others from making, using, selling, offering for sale, importing, inducing others to infringe, and/or offering a product specially adapted for practice of the patent
Oh, I thought you were still on about the purpose of a patent being so others could duplicate it. That is not the purpose. Now you're back to claiming that something has to work to receive a patent.
You are catching on! My point was the USPTO will not grant a patent u less it "accurately describes well enough for others skilled in the art or field to duplicate it"
"I have knowledge."
I have knowledge that Schulte's EMP patent is the basis of both the USA's Missile Defense System under its non-classified guise during peacetime use by Boeing called the "Space Fence" as well as Israel's "Iron Dome".
Yes. But nothing about David Schulte, just Paul.
Google "Schulte Missile Defense". I just did and the Israel Iron Dome came up.

This application by Schulte was officially granted a patent in 2014. It appears that all claims Schulte asked for were granted by USPTO. What I find odd, is that this application was mysteriously held up for over 10 years by USPTO. Filing date was in 2004.

I don't know the requirements of becoming a patent examiner, but like most bureaucratic positions, they probably are not very restrictive.
