An agency that advises the commanders of the United States military on future weapons technology issued a report that recommends more research into Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR). The Defense Threat Reduction Agency; or DTRA, issued a report entitled Investigation of Nano-Nuclear Reactions in Condensed Matter.
“The Pd/D co-deposition process has been shown to provide a reproducible means of manufacturing Pd-D nano-alloys that induce low energy nuclear reactions (LENRs),” the report states. Pd stands for palladium, a metal widely used in some LENR processes.
“We believe the two phenomena, LENR and high Tc (critical temperatures) superconductivity, are related and that both need to be investigated in order to gain an understanding of the processes occurring inside the Pd lattice,” the reported concluded.
DTRA’s purpose is to defend the United States from weapons of mass destruction. One of its major purposes is to eliminate nuclear weaponry. Another is to keep chemical, biological and nuclear weapons out of the hands of terrorists. DTRA does basic research at Fort Belvoir in Virginia near the Pentagon.
