The Barium Titanate blog reports that according to emails obtained via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), on July 8 of this year, a long time researcher working within the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, NM got a call from EEStor’s CEO Dick Weir. According to the email, Weir was calling to invite him to a demonstration of EEStor technology to take place at EEStor’s facilities in Cedar Park, TX.
The skeptic, who will remain unnamed as an unearned courtesy from yours truly, asked Weir if he had completed fabrication of a device. No, but Weir felt they were close enough to make the invitation. Around the same time frame, another group of government skeptics at Sandia National Labs were receiving a similar invitation from Dick Weir. According to three separate Department of Energy sources, Weir was looking for Sandia to perform an independent validation of EEStor technology via testing performed inside EEStor facilities.
Of the records located via the AFRL FOIA, the most interesting to EEStor believers should be a pronouncement made by a leading directed energy pioneer in an email to several DE officials all over the Department of Defense: “If the EEStor patent proves to be more than vaporware, it would revolutionize many technology applications, including DE (directed energy).”
