Navy 'UFO-tech' engineer patents fusion reactor

Is the US Navy building a mini fusion reactor ? Image Credit: US Navy
A US Navy scientist behind numerous exotic technology patents has now patented a compact fusion reactor.
The US Navy's technology labs have certainly been busy over the last few years with all manner of strange and exotic (so-called 'UFO-tech') patents being filed ranging from high-energy 'force fields' to new types of propulsion systems and vehicle designs.

Now the same engineer responsible for patenting most of these is back with another patent - this time for a new type of revolutionary compact nuclear fusion reactor.

Often seen as the Holy Grail of power generation, nuclear fusion is the same process that produces energy in the Sun and works by fusing hydrogen nuclei together to create helium.

Unlike nuclear fission which comes with the inherent risk of a meltdown, fusion is much cleaner and safer while the hydrogen fuel used by the process is so abundant that it is practically limitless.
A compact nuclear fusion reactor - one that is small enough to fit on a ship or even a spacecraft - would be particularly revolutionary.

"At present there are few envisioned fusion reactors/devices that come in a small, compact package (ranging from 0.3 to 2 meters in diameter) and typically they use different versions of plasma magnetic confinement," the patent reads.

"Three such devices are the Lockheed Martin (LM) Skunk Works Compact Fusion Reactor (LM-CFR) , the EMC2 Polywell fusion concept, and the Princeton Field-Reversed Configuration (PFRC) machine."

Which - if any - of these will ultimately become the basis for the US Navy's compact fusion reactor however remains unclear.

It doesn't work.

Q.1.  WHO is the 'scientist'?  Strangely the article is all shy about that, perhaps with good reason.  It's Salvatore Cezar Pais. Q.2.  Does he work for the Navy?  It is claimed this is the case, but I can find no evidence of that. Q.3. Is it possible to make it look like you work for the Navy, simply by putting together some whacko and uncheckable patent and then kindly *assigning* the rights to the Navy?  Yes. Q.4. To date what patents by Pais have actually materialised into something? Q.5. Is there currently a bit of a 'war' on between China, Russia and the US (and possibly others) to post ... [More]

There's another thread here about Mr Pais..  It seems this sort of dead-end speculative patent is his thing.

In the Standard Model of Particle Physics there are 3 forces in the universe. Gravity needs to be added to that (because it obviously exists) but no particle for it has ever been detected. With Super-Symmetry there are potentially 16 more forces + another gravity one (if a gravity particle is ever detected). The general public is far behind where physics is up too, and there are physicists with patents for warp drives etc, using those other forces.

His "Fusion Reactor" doesn't work.
