X-30 NASP: The National Aero Space Plane
As a part of a five-company team, Pratt & Whitney is pursuing
and refining propulsion technologies for the National
Aero-Space Plane (NASP). Designated X-30, this huge aircraft
will operate from conventional airfields on Earth and fly at
hypersonic speeds _ up to Mach 25 or Mach 30 (15,000 to 17,000
miles per hour) _ and be capable of achieving low Earth orbit.
A scaled propulsion system has been tested at a speed of Mach
8 and other components as high as Mach 14. Additionally, an
engine cowl cooling device has been tested at temperatures it
would encounter at Mach 20.
The team is made up of two engine companies, Space Propulsion
and Systems and Rockwell's Rocketdyne Division, and three
airframe companies, General Dynamics, McDonnell Douglas and
Rockwell's North American Aircraft.
After establishing a configuration decision, the team
developed and verified the necessary technologies to fabricate
and test components, leading to a decision to proceed with
construction and flight testing of two X-30 vehicles.
If accepted and certified as airworthy for commercial use,
the X-30 could take off from Los Angeles, California and cross
the Pacific Ocean to land in Japan or Australia in a bit over
an hour, hardly enough time for a decent in-flight meal!
Using the same technology to create military and intelligence
surveillance aircraft (Aurora and others) utilizing synthetic
aperture radar, gamma ray spectrometers and other
sophisticated recording devices, they could map the entire
surface of the Earth with the resolution of photographs taken
from 200 to 400 feet in six to nine months or even less.
Images from the synthetic aperture radar which can see through
dense clouds, smog and smoke to record swaths 12 miles wide by
10,000 miles long, are stored on the aircraft's tape recorder
and downloaded via ground based high gain antennas as the
aircraft approaches the California coast. Ground based
antennas and download facilities would be located generally on
the plane's primary approach flight path to Nellis/Groom Lake,
somewhere in the vicinity of Helendale, California or
If the information is considered perishable; that is, subject
to change quickly, it might be downloaded during the mission
via satellite to Helendale or sent directly to NPIC in
Washington, D.C. where CIA and other interpretation agencies
could act upon it.
Coupled with this type of information is Keyhole and Joint
STARS, both of which provide instant, high-resolution vertical
and oblique images and electronic information of any location
on Earth virtually at the speed of light.
But can a satellite capable of receiving and transmitting
cartographic information be capable of also transmitting
holographic images toward Earth or into our atmosphere? Could
holographic recordings played at, say, Vint Hill Farms in
rural Virginia, be transmitted to a satellite in stable orbit
over the USA and projected into the skies above Kansas City?
Could the UFOs seen in Gulf Breeze, Florida and the identical
UFOs seen near San Diego, California be the same recording
played and projected on different nights to different
audiences? If these types of aerial displays are possible, why
would any agency expend enormous budgets, materials and
manpower to produce them?
Well, remember that these objects and devices are primarily
weapons of war and/or population control. The Russians have
actually admitted to experiments with these types of
Psychological Weapons in the "M" Triangle. They are the New
World Order's newest weapons and, possibly, their New Final
If people can be stunned to stupefaction by psychological
inhibitors and implanted with locating devices or injected
with DNA altering chemicals (HIV), then who needs
Earth-destroying nuclear bombs? Why kill the people who will
become your slaves when you can turn them into zombies safely
and easily, leaving the environment intact?
