    And also Woodward drive, which also contains capacitors within electromagnets. The capacitors create Dirac electrons, the magnetic impulse sets them in motion, the beam of scalar waves gets thrown back and the thrust is generated by reactive force. Many reactionless drives work on similar principle - just the geometric proportions of electromagnets and capacitors differ.

    I have to specify (but you probably already know) that PNN is different from Woodward's drive because it doesn't contain moving parts.


    Just an area of vacuum rich of scalar waves (there is relative excess of longitudinal waves of vacuum over transverse ones, i.e. more virtual neutrinos than virtual photons). It's also sometimes labeled as an area of negative energy and it exhibits contraction of time (it attenuates noise and many processes should run faster there). It should be also detectable with Juday-White warp interferometer.


    You mean that interferometer can indirectly detect those waves, right?

    Zephir_AWT :

    First of all, thank you for your exhaustive replies.

    The Sarg's engine behaves almost like Laureti's TdS1 in the video you linked! The big difference however is in the capacitor configuration. For those who don't know Laureti's device, here's some pictures (source)

    TdS1 VF 2:


    Two of the three plates of the double face capacitor (the three discs you see bulging from the center of the prototype):


    As you can see the plates are not asymmetric.

    I've never heard ASPS talking about geomagnetic effects. However in their assessment procedure they are willing to change location and orientation of the prototype during measurements as the potential financier decides. Also, Laureti stated that it's mandatory to test the device in vacuum chambers first and into geostationary orbit after in order to dispel al doubts, so I can reasonably presume that they have already taken into account the geomagnetic effects.

    About the quantum physics/dense ether model I prefer to take some time to read the linked documents before I reply. Laureti never linked PNN with any other subject except electrodynamics. However he also let slip that if one removes displacement current then we must resume the concept of aether:

    Quote from E.Laureti

    Only something similar to the electric field propagates in the vacuum and when it hits a conductive material it makes its charges to oscillate, thus generating the magnetic field.

    The assertion that it’s only the electric field who propagates in vacuum implies the existence of the aether. Without it and the displacement current in fact the propagation of electromagnetic waves would violate the energy conservation law.

    About the scalar waves detector: it's an interesting concept but again I'll have to learn what a "scalar bubble" is, first.

    About NASA testing the asymmetric capacitor: I wonder why after all this time it hasn't been tested in space yet. I mean, it's seems like a relatively simple and light device to send on ISS (for example) for further testings.


    Thank you for the link, I downloaded the file and at a first glance it looks interesting I'll take my time to read it.

    I never heard of it and I'm going to learn more.

    I remember I read about Podkletnov's work on a generic science magazine in the 90's but over the time I totally forgot of its existence. The article described a device that could reduce the weight (few percentage points) of an object placed above it. I can't remember correctly but it said Podkletnov noticed the phenomenon by chance after he observed that the smoke of his cigarette moved oddly when above the device. Was that his impulse generator? Is he still researching it?

    I've never thought of EmDrive as an asymmetric capacitor but that would explain why Laureti claims his theory can describe EmDrive too (but, as far as I know, PNN doesn't use asymmetric capacitors). He also says that people who try to figure out the EmDrive thrust origins are looking in the wrong place (sci-fi theories: gravity, quantum etc..). I'm not speaking on his behalf but I think aether might be actually involved.

    Here's a NASA paper about generating thrust with capacitors (but if I read correctly it says it basically works as a lifter):…

    What do you think? Did they underestimate the phenomenon or was it a totally different thing?

    Erik Walker

    No, it doesn't involve photon recoil.

    I was pointing out that Shawyer has been able to build the EmDrive relying on classic electrodynamics concepts. He didn't think, for instance, to quantum virtual plasma. Maybe, in my personal opinion, if he relied on quantum physics the EmDrive wouldn't have worked at all.

    My whole point is that for me (basing on Laureti's claims) the place where to start to understand the EmDrive is in electrodynamics and if it can't explain it it's because some concepts must be expanded/revisited, like the phenomenon of displacement current.

    For Laureti too photon recoil is insufficient to explain EmDrive and he believes it works "by chance", that is Shawyer has built a contraption that inadvertently dimly exploits the real phenomenon.

    Hello to everybody,

    I'm Sergio and I own a blog that follows the development of PNN, an electromagnetic thruster that, according to its inventor Emidio Laureti, is 7/8 times more efficient than EmDrive.

    I'd like to share his point of view regarding E.M propulsion phenomenon, EmDrive included.

    I think his view is different from other hypothesis I usually read about the working principle behind Shawyer's invention.

    I noticed that in order to explain the EmDrive many scientists and simple enthusiasts venture in sophisticated physics suppositions: space time bending, gravitational distortions, quantum virtual plasma etc..

    In my humble opinion however the device is basically a rearranged microwave oven.. does it really need such elaborated hypothesis?

    What if the phenomenon is actually "simpler"? Please don't get me wrong: I don't want to lessen the EmDrive (neither the people who study it) because I believe this invention is revolutionary and once fully developed it'll change the face of the world forever. What I want to say is that explanation of EM propulsion might lie in good ole electrodynamics.. After all, Shawyer himself designed it with the radiation pressure in mind.

    So what about PNN?

    This form of electromagnetic propulsion is obtained inside a capacitor plates through the use of high amounts of current in VHF.

    Due to the location of the propelling force, one of the first problems ASPS (Laureti's DIY association that is investigating and developing EM propulsion since 1992) had was to measure the displacement current between the plates. After years of testing however the association reached the baffling conclusion that displacement current does not exist!

    According to Laureti, Maxwell invented this phenomenon in order to make his theory complete and, even worse, everyone took for granted that Maxwell was right without taking any real measure, and this is still true today. Furthermore, he's not alone in this claim: for a more detailed explanation please read this.

    If one takes away this current, the EM propulsion becomes "easily" possible (any kind, thus EmDrive and Cannae as well).

    Laureti's theory is based on the non-existence of displacement current.

    Unfortunately I can't post it because for the moment it's a secret (for me too btw) for competition reasons.

    Laureti however is going to put into public domain all the details after these 3 scheduled major objectives will be completed:

    1) Creation of a "PNN Ltd" to sell small PNN thruster already competitive with ion propulsion

    2) Grant of a strong international patent.

    3) An adequate capital to defend the patent and to compete on international markets

    Disclaimer: I'm not here for fundraising, ASPS is not seeking money from single persons.

    The Association is willing to organize roadshows for aerospace industries, who are required to test PNN prototypes with their own scientific teams (it's mandatory).

    If the company is convinced ASPS will look for a collaboration to start the industrial production of PNN thrusters.
