Patent Received by Boeing for Sci-Fi Force Field Technology for Military
Boeing is currently testing a new defense technology that in essence is a force field to protect military vehicles. A patent was granted to Boeing, on March 17th of this year, for a shield.
The new technology would protect military convoys from explosive shockwaves. Potential damage would be deflected by the shields, thus saving countless lives. Detectors on the jeeps, trucks and other vehicles will detect a light generated by the blast. Extremely concentrated pulses are immediately deployed in the direction of the explosion by guided lasers. A plasma field is created that buffers the majority of the shockwaves
In the future, this same technology may be utilized to protect against attacks similar to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the Twin Towers. A bombing took 168 American lives in Oklahoma in April of 1995. Imagine the lives that could have been saved, if plasma field technology had been available 20 years ago. Someday soon, missile attacks on Israel may be an event of the past. China’s missile attacks may no longer be a threat to America, if plasma field technology continues to improve.
Previously, America has been committed to tracking missile defense systems with a computer guided laser. Researchers have experimented with ionized air which would result in missiles or other items flying through the force field to become electrically fried. A type of netting, only one atom thick, is in the experimental stages in Britain. However, the net-like material is too expensive for most practical measures. Britain, China and the United States have experimented with infrasound fields. Soon war and terrorist attacks may all be events of the past.
