The theoretical inventions known as “UFO patents” have ignited worldwide curiosity. A product of American engineer Dr. Salvatore Cezar Pais, the patents were filed during his work for the US Navy and are so ambitious in their scope and imagination that they continue to generate interest despite all evidence. obvious that they are achievable. The patents include designs for a futuristic hybrid vehicle with a radical propulsion system that would perform equally well in air, underwater and in space, as well as a compact fusion reactor, a gravitational wave generator and even a “space-time modification weapon”. The technology involved could have an impact on reality itself, claims its inventor, whose maverick daring rivals that of Nikola Tesla.
How real are these ideas? So that you can read patents to yourself it is evident that the technology required to actually create the devices described is beyond our current capabilities. Yet research in many of these areas has been going on for years, which may explain why the Navy has expressed interest. Another likely influence is that the Chinese government appears to be working on developing similar technology.
One of Dr Pais’ most eye-catching designs is the Patent 2018 for a cone-shaped machine of unprecedented reach and speed. The incredible vehicle would be able to easily zoom both high in the air and deep in the sea. It would travel through air, water and space by generating a quantum vacuum with an energy field. This void around his body would help him repel all the molecules he encounters, regardless of the medium. The craft would also leave no thermal signature, making it virtually undetectable. Controlling “quantum field fluctuations” in a vacuum would counteract inertia and resistance, resulting in “extreme speeds”. Reducing the inertial and gravitational mass of a craft in this way could be a transformation for space travel. It looks like an alluring design. However, as stated, this is not something we could actually create with current technologies.
Another futuristic patent with far-reaching ramifications is Pais’s plasma compression fusion device. It would be relatively small, less than two meters long, and house fusion reactions generating power in the order of gigawatt (one billion watts) to terawatt (one trillion watts). By comparison, a coal-fired power station or a nuclear reactor generates energy in the order of one to two gigawatts.
Notes from researchers who worked on Pais’ ideas indicate that a possible result of the plasma fusion device and the high energy levels it can generate is the “space-time modification weapon.” (SMW). The research papers call it “a weapon that can make the hydrogen bomb look more like a firecracker, in comparison.”
Among Pais’s other inventions with military applications, there is a patent for an electromagnetic field generator. It could create “an impenetrable defensive shield towards sea and land as well as space-based military and civilian assets” that would be used against ballistic and cruise missiles that bypass radar and other defenses. The shield would also be a barrier against space hazards like coronal mass ejections and wayward asteroids.
Another device that could deflect asteroids is the high frequency gravitational wave generator designed by Pais. It would work to cross the generated electromagnetic fields and create gravity waves. These could be used to propel spaceships to the far reaches of the galaxy, among other uses.
The Pais effect
The fantastic inventions devised by Dr Pais are largely based on an idea he calls the “Pais effect”. In his patent drafts and in a maintenance with The reader, he described it as “the generation of extremely high electromagnetic energy fluxes (and therefore high local energy densities) generated by a controlled movement of electrically charged matter (from solid state to plasma state) subjected to accelerated vibrations and / or accelerated spin, via rapid acceleration transients.
This effect is equivalent to the ability to rotate electromagnetic fields to contain a fusion reaction. The electromagnetic energy fields are said to be so powerful that they could “building the fabric of our reality at the most basic level, ”Pais writes.
Concretely, this invention could lead to a real revolution in propulsion, quantum communications and create an abundance of energy produced at low cost. Admittedly, an extraordinary claim which requires extraordinary evidence, as postulated by the Sagan standard.
Dr Pais’ claims have drawn a fair amount of criticism and disbelief from his fellow scientists. Nuclear engineer and researcher Carl Willis, who is also a reactor supervisor at the University of New Mexico, called Dr. Pais’ work, “a classic case of pathological science” which is heavy with jargon and “absurd statements” while providing little evidence that his ideas, which seem to contradict established physics, can bear fruit.
Physicist Stephen Webb of the University of Portsmouth in England was equally blunt, saying that “I find it frankly confusing that the patents have been granted. He called Pais’ ideas a “wonderful wish list of things we want” which “doesn’t make sense in terms of physics.”
Dr Charles Collett, who teaches physics at Muhlenberg College, recognised that in theory, the Pais effect may not be “extravagant”, but that in practice there are “significant engineering challenges” in designing a device capable of producing the kind of forces electromagnetic fields that Dr. Pais envisages in his patents.
Despite the well-founded unease with Dr Pais’ inventions, the Navy took them seriously enough to conduct experiments for three years and even found some of them “operable”, although the extent of this purported operability makes subject to debate. In the patent documents, two Navy officials seemed to affirm operability of inventions.
In addition, in correspondence with The Drive “War Zone,” Timothy Boulay of NAWCAD, said Pais High energy electromagnetic field generator was indeed tested from 2016 to 2019, at a cost of $ 508,000. The team working on the project consisted of at least 10 technicians and engineers and completed some 1,600 hours of work. But at the end of the tests, the Pais effect “could not be proven,” shared Boulay.
What subsequently happened with the device under test and other investigations is not known at this point. There are indications in the documents obtained by the Discs WarZone through the Freedom of Information Act that inventions could be transferred to another research department of the Navy or Air Force, or maybe even to NASA or DARPA, but if that s’ is really produced is not clear.
Who is Dr Pais?
As the creator of these potentially pioneering designs, Dr Pais naturally caught the attention of netizens and skeptical scientists, but because he rarely gives interviews (in part due to classified research for the military), he stuck with it. largely enigmatic.
Biography of its author in a 2019 concept article on the Plasma Compression Fusion Device, published by the peer-reviewed engineering journal IEEE Plasma Science Transactions, provides some clues. The article proposes a compact plasma compression fusion device that seeks to generate enormous energy through nuclear fusion and describes Dr. Pais as a mechanical and aerospace engineer who currently works for Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) of the Navy at the Department of Defense in Washington, DC. According to its website, the SSP is “the country’s leading provider of cost-effective, safe and secure strategic at-sea deterrence systems and related technologies.” He is working on the development of submarines and advanced weapons for the declared mission of “preventing nuclear war”.
Dr. Pais’ training includes a doctorate. from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and his previous references include work as a NASA researcher, working for the aircraft division of the Naval Air Warfare Center (NAWCAD) in Maryland, and work as a general engineer as well as an advanced concept analyst for Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems, one of the world’s leading companies for next-generation aerospace and defense technologies.
Dr Pais, says the bio, uses his “advanced knowledge” in aerodynamics, with particular expertise in the design of missiles and hypersonic vehicles. His broad research interests also extend to electrical engineering, room temperature conductivity and new quantum technologies with a focus on laser energy generation and the generation of high energy electromagnetic fields.
The inventor’s credentials are truly impressive. Has he come up with devices that not only challenge well-known physics and physicists, but that will radically change our lives with unlimited energy and high-speed all-medium vehicles? Time will tell, but in his exchanges with The Drive, Dr Pais sticks to his technological visions and asks skeptics to “try to keep an open mind about my work.”
