You know, I think this whole matter could be solved pretty effectively. On one hand, there really is a need for secrecy on much of this at the time it's developed. We don't want to see North Korea simply send some diplomats to the patent office (or search it online, for that matter) and walk out with the propulsion and shielding specifics of the F-117, B-2 or Aurora aircraft. That would be.....bad for outcome. Real bad.

Reports have circulated about water scarcity (fresh water). Desalination methods are frequently suppressed, from what I can tell (i have tracked the demise of at least 3 products that can purify ocean water relatively cheaply, just over the cost of R/O)
