"Let me bring you up to date here on current events... they have a contract from McDonald Douglas to build mental controlled shielding and firing systems on the new F-22 fighters..."

Okay, I can see why you have the wrong information; he has the wrong information, too.

All the F-22 Raptors have the same stealth skin as the F-117 Nighthawks. With the proper control systems this skin is capable of variable reflection angles and possible field output capabilities.

I doubt you have access to the details of the fuselages of the aircraft; that information requires an access in excess of any clearance I've ever had. But common sense should tell you differently; the F-117's fuselage was angular, and was designed to reflect radar signals away from the emitter and not bounce it back at them.
 Quoting: Duncan Kunz


It was my understanding that this skin absorbed some of the radar energy and the angles also reflected it in such way that much of the radar waves actually cancel themselves out...?

The F-22, on the other hand, does not need this angularity approach; obviously, there is something in the makeup of the passive and active systems providing low observable results that is substantially better than that of the F-117.

Horsefeathers. The SR-71's success was based on the fact that it could fly faster and higher than any triple-A or interceptor aircraft at the time. The Soviet radars could see it fine, they just couldn't reach out and touch it.

When the SR-71 was developed in 1962, the state of the art computer systems were just transiting from vacuum tubes to transistors, and the best transistorized computers were still discrete. If there were such a thing as "computer-controlled stealth systems" which could "manipulate the radar reflection angles", then why did the F-117 have to rely on a clunky physical radar angle approach which kept the plane subsonic and impossible to control without computers?
 Quoting: Duncan Kunz

The SR-71 wasn't originally developed with stealth skin in mind but was used as test bed later on, before the F-117.

The reason f-117 couldn't use the same sort of computer controlled stealth is likely because of the sheer size of the computer that was required to perform the neccessary calculations. Besides the F-117 was a joke. A big rip-off sale to the air force. They were already capable of building much better but produced that piece shit to demonstrate stealth capability for publicity till the F-22 could be produced. Why else do you think they made it black instead stealthy grey if not to show it off?

Never make anything more adavanced then it has to be lest your enemy adapt to it...

This system has performance of thermonuclear fusion explosions without the problems posed by ORION..... Hail FIREBALL!


FIREBALL: Fusion Ignition Rocket Engine with Ballistic Ablative Lithium Liner

AIP Conf. Proc, January 20, 2006 -- Volume 813, pp. 783-794
SPACE TECH.&APPLIC.INT.FORUM-STAIF 2006: 10th Conf Thermophys Applic Microgravity; 23rd Symp Space Nucl Pwr &Propulsion; 4th Conf Human/Robotic Tech &Nat'l Vision for Space Explor.; 4th Symp Space Coloniz.; 3rd Symp on New Frontiers &Future Concepts; DOI:10.1063/1.2169260
Issue Date: January 20, 2006

Thermo-nuclear fusion may be the key to a high Isp, high specific power propulsion system. In a fusion system energy is liberated within, and imparted directly to, the propellant. In principle, this can overcome the performance limitations inherent in systems that require thermal power transfer across a material boundary, and/or multiple power conversion stages (NTR, NEP). A thermo-nuclear propulsion system, which attempts to overcome some of the problems inherent in the Orion concept, is described. A dense FRC plasmoid is accelerated to high velocity (in excess of 500 km/s) and is compressed into a detached liner (pulse unit). The kinetic energy of the FRC is converted into thermal and magnetic-field energy, igniting a fusion burn in the magnetically confined plasma. The fusion reaction serves as an ignition source for the liner, which is made out of detonable materials. The energy liberated in this process is converted to thrust by a pusher-plate, as in the classic Orion concept. However with this concept, the vehicle does not carry a magazine of autonomous pulse-units. By accelerating a second, heavier FRC, which acts as a piston, right behind the first one, the velocity required to initiate the fusion burn is greatly reduced. ©2006 American Institute of Physics

ok so there may be no official confirmation that this will happen.

But my point is it could be done now.

we have the technology.

If you watch BG then do you agree we could build a battlestar now minus the faster than light drive?

i think we could.

Dean drive
The Dean drive or Dean device is a hypothetical scheme for spacecraft propulsion. The patent is of a variety known as an oscillation thruster.

It is named after Norman L. Dean, who called it a reactionless drive and who patented an alleged example of such a device. According to Dean, his propulsion device can produce linear acceleration without the use of any reaction mass. If such a device could be physically realized, it would revolutionize space travel, since in conventional rocketry most of a rocket’s launch weight is devoted to carrying mass that is ejected downwards to drive the remaining mass of the rocket and its payload upwards. A reactionless drive would violate Newtonian physics, and is regarded by the scientific mainstream as physically impossible.

You got that right, Ace!

I have it on good authority that certain well placed people at NASA were seriously considering the FIREBALL concept as a way to travel throughout the solar system.

And defend the Earth from asteroids!

Re: US to build "Battlestar Galactica" space battlecruiser
likely wouldnt see that sorta mega space ship being built anywhere except for near some asteroids, due to all the issues already mentioned.. so first we'll probably blast a roid into earth orbit for mining, which will lead to a more permanent space station deal, and that'll be when it'll all take off space wise.. until then we're just fucking around in the dirt, so to speak

We can build it in space. We can use the heat of the sun to smelt the metal we need to build it from asteroids , we can use 3 d printers to convert moon dust . Into electrical raw material. Or what ever we need. We could build a fleet of battlestar type spacecraft. For defense ,from planetary collisions , near misses. And for colonist transport to mars. A vessel the size of a battlestar , would be very useful. Think of the scientific and engineering , lessons we would learn . And for get building a Death Star , a Dyson sphere should be superior but only if we used an artificial star to power it.

Re: US to build "Battlestar Galactica" space battlecruiser
With the amount of taxpayer money we have spent on black projects over the past 30 years, you can bet your ass we already have a FTL drive system or two. Right now they are beginning to talk about the kind of Faster Than Light drive that folds the fabric of space in front of the ship so while the ship does not move from point a to point b in the traditional way, the multiple folds in the fabric of space and time itself allows the movement thru vast distances in a matter or days or weeks vs months or years. And this is just ONE of the possible types of FTL drive that is now getting some press. (Possibly because the government is finally getting ready to announce its existence as some sort of a break-thru. Although in reality it probably was discovered twenty years ago and has been tested and perfected so that today it is capable of producing the equivalent of a warp factor 50 or 100!)

The other thing that the CERN project has given science is access to dark matter - which they have long speculated was required for the production of a true star gate. Could we now have access to other planets via ancient technology that was rediscovered only a few years ago? That too is beginning to look as though fiction is becoming fact once again.

"Still need a revolutionary propulsion system to be able to do just that..."

nuclear rocket drives could provide the thrust.

with a ship as big as a battlestar plenty of room for shielding.

i did say minus the FTL drive as we can't make that at the moment.

but for planetary defence it should be ok.
