    It's been years since I searched on the internet with my engineering group on the new stuff coming out of University research, think tanks and government skunk works. We would search the libraries of Jet Propulsion Lab's, Lawrence Livermore, MIT, Caltech, and scores of others. We found where we were not alone finding other groups having similar interests. This is why I revisited the Laser Weapons technology to see where things have been going. I wasn't surprised. The business end of Laser weapons and technology is off and running well. I'd consider stock options in the near future.

    So, the Laser Weapon posting made me remember other techy stuff emerging. For decades, research has been going on in below ground labs on Particle Beam Weapons, especially after the famous Tesla introduced his "Death Ray". If I remember the story correctly, that Death Ray mysteriously vanished from the public, however, a significant number of scientists and reporters detailed the development for the press releases. I searched on "Particle Beam Weapon" on google/bing and found many references including another tech toy called Neutral Particle Beam Weapon or NPB for short. Please search on "Neutral Particle Beam Weapon", it's just so, Star Trekky.

    For the finality of this opening thread, please entertain yourself on a search for "Antigravity B2 Bomber", or "Antigravity Military Aircraft". This is major "WOW" stuff. You have to glean the weird reporting, so be cautious of the links your opening. There are credible links with excellent background and scientific explanations. The reason I remembered Antigravity is this was another cool tech that I looked up with my engineering group. It was cool than, but now 15 years later, it's way cool now. I used to visit Whitman AFB for Comm work in aviation. I could never get too close to the Stealth or B2 Spirit, but you don't need to get close to see questionable designs. When you entertain specific people in discussions that work on this aircraft, you get an idea that this aircraft already uses antigravity technology. Large thrust propulsion and antigravity minimizing weight can give you great performance and very long distance flying without refueling. Dutch, you'd like the aircraft, so search on these antigravity subjects. America is on a terrific tech journey. If you ignore it for ten years, it will most likely be free public knowledge in the future. Now, you just have to work a little harder and use an open mind with some scientific research.

    To bad they weren't available in Viet Nam - then again

    Amc, sure technology will advance; however if it is only used for warfare then we are on the wrong track. Also do not forget the "money god" , certain industries will not let go of older technologies; take the oil industry, who like to keep selling jet fuel etc. Right now with the Tesla electric car, I wonder who wins in the end. We'll wait and see.

    Since the Defense Dept. has such an enormous budget along with the demands of the military, they are the only ones with deep pockets for funding exploratory innovations which they (the Military) are always looking to apply for military use, it was said that Prof. Einstein once made a comment to the effect had he known what the development of the atom and what the related science would become ,he would have never made his discovery known.

    As the "beat" goes on.......so does the evolution of technology. I continue to inquire on military hardware and new tech advancements and find more surprises in deployment around the world. Many companies are devoted to the world of robotics introducing hardware that mimic the science-fiction movies many enjoy watching.

    A solutions factory in Israel called "G-NIUS" is developing and deploying unmanned ground systems. One system, Guardium MK1, is installed at perimeter control areas, such as, airports, energy plants and borders. These are lethal systems that guard dog areas with a variety of unmanned weapons. Another from Samsung, SGR-1, is a sentry gun monitoring hot demilitarized zones and can detect human facial recognition 2 miles away and capable of firing machine gun, grenade launcher and other without human intervention. These are weapons guarding areas that shoot first and answers questions later. A Samsung link identified the SGR-1 as deployed currently on Israel's borders.

    Another automated weapons system that has been in development by a company, Foster-Miller, for years is called "Swords". It was first developed as a proof of concept project to show the military. Swords, has human intervention, however plans are advertised for future automatic operation without human intervention. This weapon system use a variety of lethal force from machine gun, sniper rifle, rockets and more.

    Our world military is looking more and more like the emergence of the science-fiction movies like 'The Terminator" or "Robocop". Maybe the movie creators are watching these developments, thus informing the public this is our future.

    Although, I enjoy the search capabilities of the internet, I more often think it is a curse. Some things, I just rather would not want to know, like those three monkeys, "See no evil, Speak no evil, Hear no evil". Just sit in my rocking chair on the front porch and watch that Predator fire a rocket at me. Sounds like a great way to leave this cursed planet.
