New Nikola Tesla? Engineer develops “UFO patents” for the Navy

Theoretical inventions known as “UFO patents” have piqued worldwide curiosity. The patents, a product of the American engineer Dr. Salvatore Cezar Pais, enrolled in the US Navy while working, are so ambitious in scope and imagination that despite clear evidence of their feasibility, they continue to arouse interest. The patents include designs for a futuristic hybrid vehicle with a radical propulsion system that would work equally well in the 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 influence reality itself, claims its inventor, whose idiosyncratic audacity rivals that of Nikola Tesla.

The patents

How real are these ideas? While you can Read the patents It is obvious to yourself that the technology required to create the devices described is beyond our current capabilities. However, many of these areas have been researched for years which could explain why the Navy has expressed an interest. Another likely influence is the fact that the Chinese government appears to be working on developing a similar technology.

One of the most eye-catching designs by Dr. Pais is that Patent 2018 for a cone-shaped vehicle of unprecedented range and speed. The amazing vehicle could zoom around both high in the air and deep in the sea with ease. It would travel through air, water and space using an energy field to create a quantum vacuum. This vacuum around his body would help him push away any molecules it encounters, regardless of the medium. The vehicle would also leave no heat signature, which makes it practically undetectable. The control of the “quantum field fluctuations” in the vacuum would counteract inertia and resistance, which would lead to “extreme speeds”. Reducing the inertial and gravitational mass of a spacecraft in this way could be critical to space travel. It sounds like a tempting design. However, as mentioned earlier, this is not something we could actually do with current technologies.

Another futuristic patent with far-reaching consequences is the Plasma Compression Fusion Device from Pais. It would be relatively small, less than two meters long, and host fusion reactions that would generate electricity in the gigawatts (one billion watts) to terawatts (one trillion watts) range. For comparison: a coal-fired power plant or a nuclear reactor generate energy in the range of one to two gigawatts.

Notes from researchers who worked on reviewing Pais’ ideas suggest that one possible outcome of the plasma fusion device and the high levels of energy it can produce is the “Spacetime Modification Weapon” (SMW), making the hydrogen bomb in comparison appear more like fireworks. ”

Other Pais inventions with military application include patent for an electromagnetic field generator. It could create “an impenetrable defense shield to sea, land and space-based military and civilian assets” that would be used against ballistic and cruise missiles that bypass radars and other defenses. The shield would also act as a barrier to threats from space such as coronal mass ejections and wayward asteroids.

Another device that could deflect asteroids is radio frequency Gravitational wave generator designed by Pais. It would work to cross generated electromagnetic fields and create gravitational waves. These could be used, among other things, to bring spaceships to the most remote areas of the galaxy.

The pais effect

The fantastic inventions of Dr. Pais are largely based on an idea he calls “The Pais Effect”. In his patents and in one interview with The drive, he described it as “the generation of extremely high electromagnetic energy flows (and thus high local energy densities), which are generated by the controlled movement of electrically charged matter (from solid state to plasma state) that is subjected to accelerated vibrations and / or accelerated spin via rapid acceleration is transients. ”

This effect boils down to the ability to rotate electromagnetic fields to contain a fusion reaction. The electromagnetic energy fields would be so strong that they “construct the fabric of our reality at the most basic level, ”writes Pais.

In practice, this invention could lead to a true revolution in propulsion and quantum communication and generate an abundance of cheaply produced energy. Certainly, an extraordinary claim that requires extraordinary evidence as this claims Sagan standard.

The reviews

Dr. Pais have generated a lot of criticism and disbelief from fellow scientists. The nuclear engineer and researcher Carl Willis, who is also a reactor overseer at the University of New Mexico, called The work of Dr. Pais, “a classic case of pathological science” that contains a lot of jargon and “nonsensical statements” but provides little evidence that his ideas, which seem to contradict established physics, can bear fruit.

University of Portsmouth physicist Stephen Webb was equally blunt: saying “To be honest, I find it puzzling that the patents were granted.” He called Pais’ ideas a “wonderful wish list of things we want” that “make no physical sense”.

Dr. Charles Collett, who teaches physics at Mühlenberg College, recognized that the Pais effect has not “failed” in theory, but in practice there are “significant technical challenges” in developing a device that can generate the kind of electromagnetic forces that Dr. Pais introduces himself in his patents.

The exams

Despite the well-founded discomfort with the inventions of Dr. Pais, the Navy took them seriously enough to conduct experiments for three years, and even considered some of them “functional”, although the extent of this alleged functionality is controversial. There are two Navy officers in the patent documents seemed to maintain the functionality of the inventions.

Besides, in Correspondence with The Drive’s War Zone, NAWCAD’s Timothy Boulay stated that Pais’ Generator for high energy electromagnetic fields was actually tested from 2016 to 2019 at a cost of $ 508,000. The team that worked on the project consisted of at least 10 technicians and engineers and worked around 1,600 hours. But after completing the tests, the Pais effect “could not be detected,” said Boulay.

What happened to the tested device and further investigations is not known at this point in time. There is Hints in documents The Drive’s WarZone obtained through the Freedom of Information Act that the inventions could be forwarded to another research division in the Navy or Air Force, or possibly even NASA or DARPA, but whether that actually happened is not clear.

Who is Dr. Pais?

As the creator of such potentially groundbreaking designs, Dr. Pais understandably caught the attention of internet dwellers and skeptical scholars, but since he rarely gives interviews (in part due to classified research for the military), he has remained largely a mystery.

His author biography in a 2019 concept paper on the Plasma Compression Fusion Device published by the peer-reviewed journal IEEE Transactions on Plasma Sciences offers some pointers. The article suggests a compact plasma compression fusion device designed to generate tremendous energy through nuclear fusion and describes Dr. Pais is a mechanical and aerospace engineer currently working for the Navy’s Strategic Systems Program (SSP) at the Department of Defense in Washington, DC. According to its website, the SSP is “the nation’s leading provider of low-cost, safe and secure marine strategic deterrence systems and related technologies.” It works on the development of advanced submarines and weapons for the stated mission of “preventing nuclear war”.

Dr. Pais includes a Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and his previous credentials include serving as a NASA Research Fellow for the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) in Maryland and work as a General Engineer and Advanced Concept Analyst for Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems, a global leader in next-generation aerospace and defense technologies.

Dr. Pais, claims the Bio, use his “advanced knowledge” in aerodynamics with special expertise in the design of hypersonic missiles and vehicles. His broad research interests also extend to electrical engineering, room temperature conductivity and new quantum technologies with a focus on laser power generation and the generation of high-energy electromagnetic fields.

The inventor’s references are definitely impressive. Has he developed devices that not only challenge well-known physicists, but will also radically change our lives through limitless energy and fast, medium-sized vehicles? Time will tell, but in his exchange with The Drive, Dr. Pais on his technological visions and calls on the skeptics “try to stay open to my work”.
