    @ Sam Bousfield

    Of course, ground usage ONLY.

  • Andrea Rossi

    KeithT:
    Can you rephrase your question more clearly ?
    I do not understand exactly the two cases you are representing, therefore I cannot give a precise answer.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Sam Bousfield:
    Very interesting.
    I think that for ground use, and only for ground use, the Ecat SKL could be useful.
    Good luck !
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Sam Bousfield

    Dear Andrea:
    We are just about to go in production with our flying sports car, the “Switchblade”.
    Could be the Ecat SKL be fit for the ground use of our vehicle ?

    Dear Andrea,

    Due to certification, regulatory or legal requirements is it likely that initially E-Cat SKL units will be developed specifically for each regional market in the world, or will an attempt be made to have E-Cats multiple tested to be certified as universal for any country similar to some electrical consumer goods?

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Are you currently located in a geographic area not classified as a “red zone” concerning the corona virus ?

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    Note: UVC is required to destroy bacteria and viruses.
    1. Could the eCat SKL be used to directly generate UV light to destroy viruses such as the coronavirus?
    2. Or does it make more sense to generate electrical power and then power UV lamps with the required spectral output?
    3. Or both?
    4. Or not applicable?

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    At the airport luggage pick-up, a thought came to my mind. Just as the bags circulate on a conveyor belt, why not create a similar triangular conveyor belt system of E-Cat SKLs under the wings of the mega planes? Based on your recent development, I think that you are able to control the run-away reactions sufficiently to avoid catastrophic outcomes. So, if you could run the ECat at its hottest at the wingtip, and exhaust it fully, then rotate the next ECat in its place, it can be clipped off of wing-tip should it go critical, or could be parachuted down in a controlled manner, or infused with gel to shut-off the acceleration of reactions. If immobilizing in place is an option, no such rotation is necessary. Wings offer a large, high-mass-transport surface-area for easy cooling. Instead of six monthly refueling for most other applications, flight crews can replace the ECat cartridges after each flight just as easily as refueling process.
    Q1. Is that too much at this time, or has that become feasible?

    Future possibilities: A. If the electric output can be limited to say powering everything else besides propulsion, the bulk of the heat can be directly used for the flight. B. In another scenario, if the electric output is maximized, the supplementary heat can be dissipated as waste, and only the electricity will be used for everything including propulsion.
    Scenario A: Heat powered flight, residual electricity powers all else
    Scenario B: Electricity powers everything, residual heat is dissipated

    Q2. Which scenario will require fewer identical E-Cat SKLs?
    Q3. Which scenario is easier to engineer?
    Q4. Which scenario will be cheaper?

    If such a system will be possible, considering the weight penalty, would you rather design fuel for two-way long-flight or rather one-way long-flight? (Two way capacity means relatively a small number of central hubs with ECat technicians needed.) (I may be missing other more important considerations.)
    Q5. If you could, would you design ECat powered planes for two-way or one-way journey?

    Thank you.
    Take care.

    Sincerely,
    `LilyLover

    Paul di Anno:
    I never comment the work of our competitors. Anyway, I am not aware of competitive products on the verge to be presented. About the hot fusion, it will never be achieved, because to stabilize a magnetic field like that is impossible and to realize materials resistant to one hundred million of Kelvins is impossible. Not to mention the fact that a plant like that, with the amount of neutron that would be generated, would turn itself into thousands of tonns of radioactive wastes within months. The smart eaters are selling the ball that hot fusion is safe because it uses only hydrogen making helium, two things as innocent as a baby. Just like the Hydrogen nuclear bomb.

    We all are well and sound and duly defended and we all are working pretty well.
    Our two branches are in USA and Europe and each can proceed independently in case of necessity. Who is entitled to have our emergency addresses already has them.
    Thank you anyway for your kind concern.

    Did you ever figure out why argon gas does not work while nitrogen and hydrogen do ?
    Do the molecules resonant vibrational modes play a part ?

    Dear Andrea,

    Have you met any members of the third party testing team yet?

  • Physics Fan

    Hello Mr Rossi.
    Not to be morbid, but with the scary situation going on with Coronavirus, I think it is utmost importance that you give us a contact on your team in case something happens that makes you unable to communicate with us, and to insure that there is a succession plan in place for Leonardo corporation.
    Obviously your technology is too important to the world for that plan not to be established already. Who is the “number 2” at Leonardo, and can you send their contact info please. This has nothing to do with an NDA, every company has more than one exec listed and we are not asking for technical information from this individual.

  • Paul di Anno

    Dear Andrea what about your competitors ?do you know any competitors who have achieved some results similar to yours? someone who is going to launch a product on the market? on the web we only talk about hot fusion …

  • KeithT

    Dear Andrea,

    Hopefully all goes well with the E-Cat SKL testing and a subsequent presentation, from the date of this SKL presentation does this then set the timetable for a presentation of the first commercial E-Cat product ?

    Keith Thomson.

    Hello Ernie,

    Thanks for your very interesting reminiscences. Good job you didn’t have to go to Korea, but the West Coast sounds fun.

    I was in the Royal Signals of the British Army. I did both my basic training and then my trade training at Catterick Camp in North Yorkshire in the UK.

    In the early years I worked on repairs to VHF and HF radio sets in the UK, Belize, Germany, then back to the UK again. The HF radio sets were mainly used for relaying 50 Baud teleprinter traffic between HQ units and also Rear Links for Air Support Tasking. I was in various Tech Support teams, often from a workshops vehicle with a box-body electronic repair workshop mounted on a flat-bed four ton Bedford truck. We would tow a 16½KVA diesel generator to provide power all the test equipment.

    In later years I moved into installing Data Comms equipment, mainly around the UK and Europe. I did get out to Hong Kong before they returned it to China, and was in Sarajevo for a very short time to install some comms kit there.

    I served the full 22 years and got my Army Pension, which is very helpful!

    After my time in the army, I worked for a fibre optics comms company using the UK National Grid electricity pylons to carry fibre optic cables wrapped around the upper Earth cable. This was a very interesting time, seeing the start of the internet and the switch from analogue to digital TV signals by the BBC which was one of our major customers.

    I hope this is interesting and that I haven’t gone on too much.

    All the Best,
    Martyn

    Dear Andrea,

    Is it possible to build experimental charges where instead of having 6 months to a year of fuel you reduce this to 1000 hours, 100 hours, 10 hours, 1 hour, to as small a quantity of fuel as would work, perhaps based on the older QX smaller size housing, then with as high a resolution of detectors / instrumentation as possible along with your current knowledge of the trigger signal in combination with as small a size of point source possible it may be easier to separate out and understand effects, easier to control effects, is there a minimum size for group interactions to take place, is there different outcomes due to scale, not necessarily sustainable, but enough events to be measurable.

    For the plasma, instead of allowing the plasma to stabilise at its own self-generated pressure, possibly you could build a setup where you could push the pressure higher, (probably difficult from a scale / conductivity point of view – so attach say micro tubing leading to a variable volume device, say a bellows), increase / variation in pressure may lead to variation in outcome.

    Experimentation in the borderlands of viability may lead to insights, the more variation in a working setup the more that may be learned, experimentation not directly leading to a product but for knowledge.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

  • Hello Martyn,
    I don’t want to turn the discussion into an old reminiscence, but your experience in the army signal corp brings back a similar situation back in 1952 where I spent a year learning to repair radar sets at Fort Monmouth during the Korean war. Scheduled to go to Korea with my orders cut, the week I completed my training an armistice was declared. I like to say, ” they knew I was coming “. I spent the rest of my time in the service repairing radar sets up and down the entire west coast in a relatively warm climate traveling in a 2/12 ton truck loaded with parts. Learned a lot about electricity and electrons.
    Did you get your training at Fort Gordan or Monmouth? NYC was a lot more interesting than Augusta.
    My degree I had in physical chemistry was quite useful at the time for learning and applying what I learned to repairing the sets.
    Electrons at work regards.

  • Dear Andrea,
    I have thought thus far, that space charge is well understood and that it is explained by so-called Child-Langmuir 3/2 law.

    Could you advice me, then, what is the part of the space charge phenomenon, that is not explained by this law?

    Best regards, /pekka

    PS. “we are close to be ready” sounds good

  • Martyn Aubrey

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    You said that “Space charges have been considered so far just noisy disturbments”.

    However, don’t forget that the Space Charge “Electron Cloud” is the source of the free electrons at the heated cathode in Thermionic Valves (Vacuum Tubes). Without the Space Charge we would not have had valve amplifiers and hence the old valve type radios.

    In fact the first part of my working life was formed around these devices, as an Army Radio Technician maintaining and repairing quite old large radio systems back in the 1970’s and early 1980’s.

    A large mobile radio truck was a good place to be in the very cold winters of those times!

    Reminiscing Regards,
    Martyn Aubrey

  • Andrea Rossi

    Greg Curtis:
    As far as I know, only Fleishmann asked during an interview: ” Is somebody able to explain the phenomenon of the space charge discovered by Edison ? ”
    But the issue has been left dropped.
    Space charges have been considered so far just noisy disturbments…like pennicillin moulds before Fleming.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Martyn Aubrey

    Hello Ulrich,

    Many Thanks for your reply.

    My mistake.

    It’s always good to see new readers asking Andrea interesting questions on his JoNP, so “Welcome!”.

    With the ongoing search to find new forms of energy generation, in these unsettled times, it is quite fascinating to follow the development of Andrea’s very important new technology.

    Very Best Regards,
    Martyn

  • Greg Curtis

    Dear Andrea,
    studying
    http://www.researchngate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    in par 3 there is the very important citation of the space charge that Edison observed as a serendipity while testing a light bulb. Do you know if somebody else noticed it in the LENR world?
    Cheers
    Greg

    The existing ionizing radiations measurements are precise to the extreme and widely experimented and utilized in the whole world and their results are exact beyond any possible doubt. If a radiation whatsoever cannot be detected by the existing instrumentation, means that it does not exist.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Anthony

    Mr Rossi,
    What do you think of strange radiations that cannot be detected by the existing measurement systems ?

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Are you at a point where the E-Cat SKL can be submitted to third party testers, or are there still problems to resolve?

    Best wishes,
