    another thing the Patent Office does is keep US military secrets secret until told to do otherwise.

    so why is this stuff public? maybe the Patent Office is doing funny stuff, and "trolling" our "near peer" military powers.

    Its a sure bet (in nations we don't need to name) there are Generals who have slam-dunked some of their best scientists into "secure facilities" and forced them to start working on this stuff, and to show 'some results' or else.

    Well, if nothing else, I'm getting lots of good ideas for my next bad spy-adventure script. The Scientist is forced by General's goons to work on nonsense that the US Patent Office, working with US Military, posted to troll the rest of the world. He's been hinted that if he don't produce, he'll be sent to another top secret lab...at test subject of some other mad scientist who himself is under threat to "do something" and so far has only produced lots of "failure"(dead subjects). But since the UFO stuff is all bogus, The Scientist figures out he can tell his bosses anything, and demand any equip, and uses that to rig his escape in the most unlikely manner. He tells them he's made a Matter Transmitter Pod and go inside and tells them its gonna take 24hrs, so don't open, then escapes, and when they open it the goons think "It worked! But you idiots let him use it to magically self transport out of here".

    Isn't that kind of the Ironman origin story?
    Good twist with the teleporter.

    My Scientist will manage to make it to a US Embassy in neighboring nation, and from there be whisked to some US military "secure lab", because he was at least a top guy in his homeland. Then a not-too-bright US general in charge of the facility will think "but what if he was on to something, given the stakes we can't afford NOT to get everything we can" with the US mil guys saying almost exactly the stuff he was told in the beginning in his foreign homeland, and it sorta starts all over again. You always gotta set it up for the sequel.

    Just Google "Iron Man"

    It pops up as the overview for Google's movie review.

    Well, if it works it would be revolutionary. If it doesn't they can still say patent pending, and keep on working on it. Yes, military secrets should be kept secret but there are thousands of things that are now military that were not when they were patented. Robert Goddard tried to get the US military to use his rockets and they said no. Guess who did use his patents? Germany, that's were the V-2 came from. Hedy Lamarr (in addition to being a great actress she was a brilliant mathematician), and George Antheil an inventor, together invented the idea for frequency shifting, which is what makes your cell phone work, so the Navy would have a secure means of guiding torpedos during WWII, but the Navy rejected it. Years later the Navy decided that was a big mistake and adopted it and it became a military secret, but Lamar and Antheil never did get any royalties for it. There are plenty of cases of things that the military considers secret that were patented and available for general use before the military got their hands on it.

    I've got a lot of stuff I'm keeping "below the radar" for now.
