JUNE 2012


Dear Subscriber,


With Story #3, we are proud to announce the newly released,edited anthology: Physics of the Zero Point Field and its Applications to Advanced Technology released by Nova Publishers after months of work. I was a contributor to the first and last chapters (Chapters 1 and 7) but also edited Professor Claus Turtur's Chapter 6 to make sure the biographical material on future energy inventors was as accurate as possible. It may become a popular reference text on zero point quantum vacuum energy as a result of our combined efforts.  

Speaking of the quantum vacuum, it is not often that a student invents a Casimir engine but it may become a more frequent occurrence as time goes on, since Vacuum Engineering it destined to evolve into a specialized profession as well as a billion dollar business.

 Story #2 presents the details about Aisha Mustafa, a 19-year-old Egyptian physics student, who also patented her dynamic Casimir engine (see our past Future Energy eNews, June,2011 for a good explanatory article on how a ""Moving Mirror Generates Light from the Vacuum" from the dynamic Casimir effect.)

With Story #1, we are pleased to promote the release of the world's electrogravitics pioneer, T. Townsend Brown's secret experimental results from the time he spent in France. See

  for background information on electrogravitics if you are not familiar with the fifty years of development of this propulsion effect from high voltage on asymmetric capacitors. We have published two edited volumes on electrogravitics and electrokinetics. IRI Members are now also receiving the Future Energy Annual that contains even more exclusive news on the subject. 

Everyone should pay attention to Story #4 since it is possibly the most amazing and practical future energy generator that we have ever come across. IRI originally ran the reprint of New Scientist's article on the Innowattech piezoelectric highway electricity generator in 2009. Since then, the company has made several demonstration models from railroads to highway sproving that it can generate around 400 kW per kilometer of roadway.

More popular than ever is any story (e.g. #5) that shows empowered women making a difference in society. In rural Africa, a video shows how they are becoming solar engineers. It is reminiscent of our FEeNews story in December 2011 of how India is Lighting up Lives with Solar lights

1) T T Brown Story Revealed

Starburst Foundation. Dr. Paul LaViolette at


 In 1955 and 1956Townsend Brown made two trips to Paris where he conducted tests of his electrokinetic apparatus and electrogravitic vacuum chamber tests in collaboration with the French aeronautical company Société National de Construction Aeronautiques du SudOuest (S.N.C.A.S.O.) . He was invited there by Jacques Cornillon,the company's U.S.technical representative. The project was named Project Montgolfier in honor of the two French brother inventors who performed early aircraft flights. The project continued for several years until the company changed ownership resulting in a final report which was written up in 1959.

Details of the Project Montgolfier experiments remained a closely guarded secret for many years until Jacques Cornillon courageously decided to make them public prior to his death in July 2008.   Brown's proposal, the project's top secret finalreport, and an assortment of revealing diagrams and photos are posted onthe Cornillon website at:   Project Montgolfier:
and are availablefor free download.  Brown's proposal is in English, whereas the secret Montgolfier Project final report is in French.  An English translation of this 100 page final report is available from the Peeteelab website for a fee of $5.95 Canadian.  (Note there is a translation error in the statement of the  electrokinetic discwire size, which is 100 times smaller than quoted.  Refer to the original French document for the proper size.)

The flying disccarousel experiment that the Montgolfier Project conducted in 1955 used 2-1/2foot diameter discs (75 cm dia.) hung from 4 meter tethers suspended from theends of a 3 meter arm.  Based on the description given, this seems to have been almost the same flying disc test that Brown gave to the Navy at Pearl Harbor ayear or two earlier.

Brown had finished his collaboration with S.N.C.A.S.O. in 1956.  From a letter that Mr.Cornillon later wrote to a colleague, we learn that in October 1957 Brownwas in the process of test flying 10 foot diameter discs energized at a voltageof 300 kV!  Here we see that Brown had followed the plan he had first setout in his 1952 Project Winterhaven proposal which was to eventually testfly a ten foot diameter disc powered by 500 kV (70% more voltage than he usedin his 1957 test flight).   Hence we see that by this early date Brown had progressed beyond the toy model stage to flying small scale aircraft.  To reach this stage he must have been receiving substantial funding from either the military or from a major corporation.  More about Project  Winterhaven and Brown's research may be found in the book Secrets of Antigravity Propulsion In addition theProject Montgolfier team constructed a very large vacuum chamber for performingvacuum tests of smaller discs at a pressure of 5 X 10-5 mm Hg; see below.

In reading the section describing the vacuum chamber results, we learn that when the discs areoperated at atmospheric pressure they move in the direction of the leading edgewire regardless of outboard wire polarity.  This indicates that in normal atmospheric conditions the discs are propelled forward primarily by unbalanced electrostatic forces due to the prevailing nonlinear field configuration (which causes thrust in the direction of the low field intensity ion cloud regardlessof the ion polarity).  On the other hand, the report says that under highvacuum conditions the discs always moved in the direction of the positive pole,regardless of the polarity on the outboard wire.  This indicates that inthe absence of the unbalanced forces exerted by ion clouds, the discs movedmainly on the basis of the electrogravitic field effect, always toward the positive (negative G) direction.

These vacuum chamber experiments were a decisive milestone in that they demonstrated beyond a doubt that electrogravitic propulsion was a real physical phenomenon.  The report concludes saying: "It seems perfectly reasonable to conclude that a concentrated force of some kind accumulates within the presence of a strong dielectric."(i.e., presumably in the presence of a high-K dielectric.)  Based on the angle of the disc suspension cable seen in the photo on the right below, one may estimate that the disc was traveling at a speed of ~8.7 meters per second, or about 20 mph. It would have completed one revolution of its 18 metercourse in 2 seconds.

2) Casimir Propulsion Engine invented by Egyptian student


BY Kit Eaton | Fast Company 05-21-2012 |

  Casimir space engine



Remember the name, because you might see it again: Aisha Mustafa, a 19-year-old Egyptian physics student, patented a new type of propulsion system for spacecraft that uses cutting edge quantum physics instead of thrusters.

First, a little background: One of the strange quantum facts at work in Mustafa's engine idea is that there's no such thing as a vacuum, devoid of particles, waves, and energy. Instead the universe's supposedly empty spaces are filled with a roiling sea of particles and anti-particles that pop into existence, then annihilate each other in such a short space of time that you can't readily detect them.

Mustafa invented a way of tapping this quantum effect via what's known as the dynamic Casimir effect. This uses a "moving mirror" cavity, where two very reflective very flat plates are held close together, and then moved slightly to interact with the quantum particle sea. It's horribly technical, but the end result is that Mustafa's use of shaped silicon plates similar to those used in solar power cells results in a net force being delivered. A force, of course, means a push or a pull and in space this equates to a drive or engine.

Egyptian casimir engine inventor
In terms of space propulsion, this is amazing. Most forms of spacecraft rely on the rocket principle to work: Some fuel is made energetic and then thrust out of an engine, pushing the rocket forward. It's tricky stuff to get right, particularly on Earth, which is why we shouldn't be surprised SpaceX's recent launch stopped at the critical moment due to a problem with one of its chemical rocket engines. For in-space maneuvering, many different types of rocket are used, but even exotic ones like ion drives (shown in a NASA image above) need fuel. The only space drive that doesn't involve hauling fuel and complex systems into orbit is a solar sail. And Mustafa's invention can, rudimentarily, be compared to a solar sail...because it doesn't need "fuel" as such, and exerts just the tiniest push compared to the thundery flames of SpaceX's rockets. It's potential is enormous--because of its mechanical simplicity and reliability it could make satellite propulsion lighter, cheaper, and thus indirectly lower the cost of space missions of all sorts.

And if you want proof that the tiniest of pushes can propel a spacecraft, check this out: Two Pioneer space probes, launched in the 1970s, are the farthest manmade objects from Earth...but they're not as far away as they should be. Over the course of a year they deviate by hundreds of kilometers from where all our science says they must be in orbit, and it's been found that it's down to the tiniest of pushes coming from radiators on-board that radiate heat waves out slghtly more in one direction than another.
Aisha's invention is so promising that her university's staff aided with a patent application. She intends to study the design further in the hope of testing it out for real in space, but as the site points out she notes that there's no funding for a department of space science and this prevents important research being carried out in strife-ridden Egypt.

3) New Book on Zero Point Energy 

Integrity Research Institute Press Release, June 2012


A new book on Zero Point Energy  and its applications to Advanced Technology published by Nova Publishers  will be available in the last quarter to 2012.  You can order the ebook at:


Edited by Takaaki Musha from the Technical Research and Development Institute in Japan, the book contains 2 chapters written by IRI's President, Dr Thomas Valone, plus other chapters written by Mario Pinheiro, Gary Stephenson and Claus Turtur.    The book description is below.


Physics of the Zero Point Field and its Applications to Advanced Technology

Editors: Takaaki Musha (Technical Research and Development Institute, Advanced Science-Technology Research Organization, Yokohama, Japan)

Book Description: 
Space-time in a vacuum has generally been viewed as a transparent and ubiquitous empty continuum within which physical events take place. However quantum field theory and quantum electrodynamics views the vacuum as the sum total of all zero-point fluctuations of the vacuum electromagnetic field, arising from the continuous creation and annihilation of virtual particle pairs. It is this latter more contemporary view that is, for the first time, more fully explored in text form with Physics of the Zero Point Field. The scope of applications in this book range from the Casimir effect, the variation in zero-point energy at the boundaries of a region observable in nano-scale devices, to ideas for a proposed inertial drive as first described by Puthoff.

4) Crystal Roads Harvest Energy of Passing Cars

 Innowattech Press Release


 Ed. Note: Sometimes we update great future energy stories we ran years ago. The above title is from New Scientist 2008 archived on our website. Hopefully some of our subscribers will recognize the value of generating 400 kW per kilometer of roadway with harvested energy from heavy passing vehicles and offer help to facilitate licensing in this country, thus furthering energy independence. The US needs this type of robust energy in the gigawatt range for every few kilometers of installed piezoelectric crystal converters with no pollution. No other renewable energy source seems to compare since Innowattech IPEGs are not weather-dependent and is far less costly per kW of installed power. - TV  


Innowattech Alternative Energy Harvesting System

Innowattech Alternative Energy Harvesting System

Innowattech Energy Harvesting Systems has developed a new alternative energy system that harvests mechanical energy imparted to roadways, railways and runways from passing vehicles, trains and pedestrian traffic and converts it into green electricity. The system, based on a new breed of piezoelectric generators, harvests energy that ordinarily goes to waste and can be installed without changing the habitat. Innowattech presents a pioneering invention for Parasitic Energy harvesting. We provide genuine environmental benefits where parasitic mechanical energy on roads, highways, railways and airport runaways, are harvested and transferred back, in a process by which the energy is captured, stored and reused.


The Innowattech Green Energy Solution:

The piezoelectric phenomenon was first described by the Curie brothers. They observed that certain materials generate electric current when they are deformed. Today piezoelectric materials have multiple uses in industry, but most work efficiently only at high frequencies.

Innowattech has developed a new breed of piezoelectric generators with a mechanical electrical association that are ideally suited to harvest the mechanical from roadways, railways, runways and pedestrians.

In addition has developed a very efficient storage system to collect and store the electricity produced by these generators. The accumulated energy can be used for local power needs or routed into the grid.

The energy consumed by the vehicle (sourced in the fuel combustion) utilized for a variety of applications; one of them is to overcome rolling resistance. A typical asphalt road can be described as a visco-elastro-plastic material, with elasticity being its dominant material characteristic.

When a vehicle passes over a road, the road deflects vertically. This deflection is released as thermal energy.
For a road with embedded piezoelectric generators, part of the energy the vehicle expands on roads deformation is transformed into electric energy (via direct piezoelectric effect) instead of being wasted as thermal energy (heat).

Innowattech's advantages:
* Pure energy harvesting (parasitic energy only)

* Functions in all weather conditions

* Solution integrated with infrastructure - theft & damage proof

* Solution does not require purchase of real estate

* Proximity to consumer

* Data collection, e.g. "Smart Road," etc.

* Providing electricity for areas remote from main electricity lines 


On Wednesday, December 1st 2010, Innowattech has installed a rail monitoring station with cooperation of the Israeli National Railways company. The monitoring station is located on a commercial rail near the Haifa station.

The station includes several systems that together enable Innowattech's team provide high accuracy data to the rail operators' everyday needs.

The unique full rail monitoring system was developed based on Innowattech's technology which enables the conversion of usually wasted mechanical energy into useful electrical energy.

Most of the world's tracks use plastic based pads assembled between the sleeper and the tracks. These pads are designed to reduce the impact of fluctuations during the train's travel and at the same time reduce the environmental noise.

Removing the plastic based pads:

 Innowattech has developed a similar pad in geometry and size to the original pad. Innowattech's pads are embedded with PZT materials, so once the train passes; an electric pulse is created which allows creation of electrical energy. Based on Innowattech's existing knowledge it is possible to analyze and process the received signals.

Inserting Innowattec's pads:

IRI website QR Code Currently, Innowattech's system enables data on dynamic & static weight of the train and its components (wheels, axles, locomotive and wagons), speed, count of the various railway wheels and components.

Innowattech's development team is now concentrated on expanding the information provided and is intending to present information related to measurements and components' health such as the wheel's diameter & profile, in the upcoming quarter. The processed information, displayed in tables, is transferred as a file to the relevant office in the Railway Company.

This basic information, necessary to train operators wherever they are, allows companies to reduce maintenance effectively.

  The simplicity of the monitoring station's construction and its attractive price is a breakthrough in this market and allows many railway companies to place monitoring stations along the tracks, reducing the need for transferring measuring instruments along the tracks, as is the case today in many parts of the world.

Innowattech is already in negotiations with several costumers from the railway field regarding the rail monitoring system and intends to start commercial selling very soon.
