Dedicated to advocacy & support of qualified, advanced energy inventions.
The Future Energy Program at Integrity Research Institute implements Inventor Advocacy toward the development of viable, fuelless energy inventions. The program includes business plan development, patent preparation and strategy, and investor networking. The projects in this program at this time are listed below.
1) Hartman Magnetic Track Project
2) Magnetic Energy Converter
3) All-Magnetic Motor Project
4) Focus Fusion
5) Electromagnetic Earthquake Prediction
1) The purpose of the Hartman Project is to replicate the patented magnetic propulsion system which is outlined in the expired 1980 US patent #4,215,330 by Emil T. Hartman. The Hartman invention is designed to propel a steel ball upward along a 10 degree inclined plane by the magnetic forces of permanent (cylindrical) bar magnets and then, without means other than gravity, cause the ball to drop from the end of the plane entirely out of the magnetic field. It is now understood that the Hartman inhomogeneous magnetic field constitutes a magnetic gradient (dB/dz). From classical physics, it is well-known that this changing magnetic field will produce a linear force Fz in the direction of the strongest B field, as in the famous Stern-Gerlach physics experiment. Confirming results have been posted online by JLN Labs which picture a crude, low budget, two-magnet ramp with Alnico magnets that still succeeds in accelerating a ball bearing up the incline. Called the "SMOT," Greg Watson explains on the JLN Labs website that it is a “free energy demonstrator that anyone can build easily…a steel ball climbs a magnetic ramp, the magnetic energy is converted into kinetic/potential energy and the ‘regauging’ effect is done by the gravity during the drop.” Efficiency measurements show 113% with mechanical losses taken into consideration. Thus, the project has a reasonable chance of success.
2) The second IRI project is the Magnetic Energy Converter (MEC) of Roshchin & Godin. In June, 2000, Sergei M. Godin and Vladimir Roshchin, with the Russian Academy of Science, in Moscow, notified the U. S. Department of Energy that some expert opinions were needed to understand the experimental phenomena from a magnetic energy converter (MEC) experiment that was based on the SEG and IGV. Their paper was published soon after in Technical Physics Letters (Vol. 26, No. 24, p. 70) and also circulated by the DOE to a select number of recipients in the Advanced EM Group for scientific feedback.
- A one-page "Summary of the MEC Project" describes its background and purpose.
- The MEC Technical Physics journal article is now posted online in PDF format.
- An MEC Brochure is also online in PDF format describing opportunities available directly with their U.S. corporation, Energy & Propulsion Systems LLC.
- A scholarly, physics journal review of the MEC rotation theory has also been published by Dr. Pitkanen from the University of Helsinki (see Sections 3.5 & 3.6).
3) The third project is the All-Magnetic Motor Project. Updating the Japanese "Permanent-Magnet Prime Mover" patents of the Kure Tekkosho company (e.g., Patent JP55144783), the Spiral Magnetic Motor is an interesting example of utilizing the magnetic gradient (see #1) in the circular path. The recent Sprain patent also utilizes this spiral magnet design. Another division of this project area is the testing of a crucial segment the Brady magnetic motor seen on the Perendev Power Developments Pty (Ltd) website, whose assertion that they have achieved the milestone of producing "the world's first fuelless magnetic engine" was also the subject of Future Energy eNews, September 8, 2004.
4) The fourth project is Proton-Boron (p-B11) fusion, also called Dense Plasma Focus Fusion . It has been extensively researched by Dr. George Miley, Professor, U of Illinois Fusion Lab, who also was a speaker at COFE2, sponsored by IRI, with his DVD available on our Order Page. Dense plasma focus fusion is known to be FOUR times as powerful as any other form of fusion known today (see Business Plan appendix). The cover story of Future Energy (2003) magazine/newsletter, this robust, hot fusion project is scheduled to break-even soon. The Plasma Focus Fusion website announces "Simulation Results Confirm Focus Fusion Can Produce Net Energy" (Feb., 2004) and the suppression that this invention has suffered because of its direct competition, the unproductive dinosaur called the "Tokamak." Eric Lerner's Focus Fusion prototype, tested at the University of Texas, has achieved a billion degrees, satisfying their NASA nuclear propulsion grant criteria. See Business Plan for this very promising, medium risk, high energy project.
5) Fifth on our list is the Pre-Seismic Magnetic & Electronic Detector, Model T-1050 invented by Dr. Elizabeth Rauscher and Bill Bise. Using electromagnetic energy signals down to 1 nanogauss, the instrument can predict with varying advance warning, from 24 hours to 3 days, for the occurrence of a major earthquake or volcano eruption. It has a range of over 1000 miles (1500 km) for ground to air. It has been operational since 1979. The invention has been described in the book, Electromagnetic Phenomena Related to Earthquake Prediction published in 1994 by Terra Scientific Publishing Co., Tokyo, and patented (US #4,724,390). See IRI Report #201 "Earthquake Prediction Technology" for more information.
IRI is currently fund-raising for these programs with an exclusive arrangement with each of the inventors. Your tax-deductible contributions can be earmarked for any of these projects. Only qualified inquiries about the above projects will be entertained. We invite the general public to become members of IRI to receive updates on these and other energy inventions.
