Military eCat: Is the US Navy's SPAWAR Rossi's Customer?

Thursday, November 3, 2011

Rossi's first customer who is now the proud owner of their very own 1MW fusion reactor looks almost certainly military in origin, and could well be SPAWAR. Space And Naval Warfare Systems Command. Should we now call it the NavyCat?

All the clues were there:
  • The Need For Secrecy Strictly Dictated By The Customer
  • The Mysterious Colonel Domenico Fioravanti Who Supervised The Test.
  • The Viewing Restrictions Of Maximum Two People At A Time For 5 Minutes Only At The Test
Some clues from Rossi were there also:

Dear Max:
The Customer is of a category that usually maintains secret all they do. I do not know if and when they will want to make public statements and I am bound to a strict non disclosure agreement.

Warm Regards,

Andrea Rossi
"the person who leaded the test, an engineer of NATO ( a Colonel) who has 30 years of experience in thermopower plants and thermodynamical systems.

It is entirely possible that the Navy contracted the supervision of the tests out to a NATO Colonel on behalf of the US Navy. Additionally, it also fits that the customer was not concerned about recieving what is essentially a prototype product for further development.

The US Navy has a long history and association with cold fusion going back to the Pons and Fleischmann era, even studying cold fusion in secret for over a decade while mainstream science shrugged at it's very mention.

From the FOX News article:

Allan hinted on his blog that an unnamed “customer” of Rossi's device is a military organization that starts with an N. Rossi said this customer measured and verified the test -- and told that Paul Swanson with the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems unit (SPAWAR) can vouch for the demonstration. spoke with a man at SPAWAR who identified himself as Swanson, and who said only that he was "not in a position to talk to the press." Several other sources within the Navy and the Pentagon either declined to comment or did not return messages.
