Well having studying the need for decreasing America’s dependence on Foreign Oil and the advances of the automotive industry such as Fed Ex and UPS along with Eaton and GM. Also studying the efforts of Sunlite Bus in Palm Desert and the recent information on ceramic coatings and problems in Urban Heat, Ozone Levels, Global Warming Issues from NASA and GeoSat efforts and various weather updates and information gathering data efforts to predict thunder storms, Hurricanes, Fires and Tornados we have learned quite a bit.
Now then as we have studied the problems associated with fuel cells in the heat transfer process and the need to minimize heat escaping on 100’s of thousands of vehicles on America’s highways and in urban metro areas causing urban heat and the possible leakage of hydrogen tanks could cause problems in ozone and global warming as the number of vehicles across the country increase over the next four decades. But this all being true adds to the dilema of a “Hydrogen Economy” (recommended reading list). It is also the case that in most of mankinds dilemas we find the greatest opportunities. Such is the definition of Chaos as we see so often throughout or species most recent 10,000 years of recorded history.
The fact that hydrogen cells put out 1200 degree heat and certain fuel cell units using certaim compounds give off more in this process means that their heat signature is greater than other types of aircraft. Which is a problem if one is powered by hydrogen cell because it is very easy to hit with a higher footprint if a surface to air heat seeking missile is used right? Yes this is obviously true enough.
Now then If small UAVs are created and we are talking about making 500 for such an effort and they can be built with tin foil and alluminum foil krinkled in their wings and have a high heat coming from thier powerplant then they are great targets for surface to air missiles. If the enemy thinks or even knows that UAVs are taking pictures of the ground then they will shoot at them. We know from trying to shoot down UAVs with small caliber machine guns or rifles that it is nearly impossible.
So then to down one of these things they need a missile, which will be able to hit them. However if the UAVs are cheap to make and we know they are if you study model aircraft any. Then you can make these with a fuel cell motor in mass for about $500.00 each. You could literally cause your enemy to run out of SAMs trying to down 500 UAVs and our cost would be little. $250K to guarnatee that no SAMs were left. They could fly around all day and draw fire. Using Hydrogen they could stay aloft longer too.
The cost of losing a helicopter of fighter/attack aircraft is very high and the loss of life is still a larger factor in determining a wars success. We like to win after all we are Americans. So then remembering that the cost to train a single pilot in the military is $250K so then simply saving one pilot means we save 250K to retrain his replacement and save the possibly $15 million for the most inexpensive fighter. So we should be building UAVs on a huge scale, some for decoys too.
These units should have fuel cells which that technology is good for America for lawn mowers, ATVs, chain saws, pressure washers and lawn tractors. Thus we can assist in changing the oil economy slowly and fund the research through the military against those who oppose us for better means and save pilots and money to our military in the short term and long term. There are hundreds of web sites with this group of hobbyists:
and there are many new fuel cell devices which run small things.
You see you can drive your enemy nuts and if you have 500 UAVs there is safety in numbers and you can mimic the amount of heat signature of other aircraft by the type of fuel burned and the lack of ceramic coatings to shield the heat. You pick the temperature you want it to put out between 1200-2000 degrees and they can easily build you 500? After all, you are only taking the amount of energy need to keep aloft a small UAV with a 15 foot wingspan and some gadgetry. Also remember in WWII when we tried to figure out the German Radio frequencies they used so we could bomb them with out detection by scrambling that frequency?
Well we can put dummy devices in the UAVs set to dummy frequencies and then they will capture the ones which run out of gas and assume those are the RF photo transferring frequencies and then they will try to scramble the frequency which we are not using thus giving away their locations and we smart bomb them. Dumb idea huh? No perfect decoy game of hide and seek. Also there are devices you can put on vehicles, which make sound like a whistle that hurt or are unpleasing to the human ear. Fly the UAV around and the piercing sound will affect them and make them irritated and then they will really want to blast these UAVs out of the sky at all costs. You know like when you have a few flys in the house after the 4th of July BBQ, you spend a considerable amount of human energy to kill a little fly which is spending 1:500,000 the energy you are. Talk about a waste of energy. Of course this is the same theory, the enemy uses it’s valuable resources to hit the little stupid UAV, and having done so makes them less able to hit your important aircraft. Including the non-Decoy UAVs which are gathering your information. If you fly these units at night they will have no idea what the heck it is, the radar shows high heat, large object. The opposite of Stealth. the UAV says “HELLO, I’M HERE, WHATCHA GONNA DO NOW, HELLO !!!!”
There are older radar system, which countries have such as Australia which can see Stealth and some countries which have an abundance of cell phones and they can use the interference of an aircraft to find out where it is. Looking for breaking patterns and anomalies in the patterns caused by these waves and signals. So by using a unit like this, you can draw fire from old and new technology, drive your enemy nuts, confuse them if it is a real strike because now they will not shoot until they are sure and in a real strike that could be too late. And you also save lives, save money and play hell on the logistical nightmare of competing against the United States and her military machine and next day, real-time supply chain of everything needed to fight a war. So crippling the enemies supply chain such as we did in bombing the German Factories, embargos on Iraq and the cold war with Russia was about slowing the flow of money, troops, supplies and logistics. If you run them out of weapons, most specifically SAMs, then they have nothing to fight you with. Air superiority is a given at that point.
The reason I bring this up in the increasing costs to make stealth aircraft that also perform up with the best. Wave Rider Stealth aircraft have the speed to run away from standard missiles, but a helicopter has a chance in hell of running away from a Russian or Iranian surface to air, which is shot in close proximity. Best idea is to run them out of missiles and conveniently have the factories where they are made flattened to the ground. Take out the threat early and save the money. It is low tech and high tech and fiscally responsible warfare that will mean the Military leaders are not headed off at the pass by liberal Senators who want to close bases and cut funding which kills our boys and girls in uniform.
Let’s be smart when dealing with radicals. Draw their fire and then you have even more intelligence of location of fire, number of UAVs hit or shot down, number of enemy weapons expended rounds. Think about how to kill a radical: Either 1.) make him a non-radical through a better life and education; 2.) Eliminate his ability to fight you (money or weapons); 3.) Eliminate the person from linear time. Simple really. I hope this idea does some good to our UAV task force on Global and Universal Security of the Human Race.
