Book Description

The present book reports upon the results of scientific and technical research conducted for five years, between 2009 and 2013, by a group of cca 10 scientists, engineers and technicians at MiraTechnologies, Bucharest, Romania, upon some devices of remote detection with rotating antenna.

It is known that an important problem today in our society consists in combating the terrorist acts by detecting explosives or narcotics, as well as other illegal materials. Of course, a remote detection is the most desirable one. There exists, since long, on the international technological markets a series of devices which seem to be able to perform such a remote detection. All these devices (some of them reviewed in the book) share as a common element a rotating antenna which can swivel about its axis and point to the target in the field. These devices, which evoke a charming rod, a magic wand or the famous dowsing rod, have the aspect of a rather small device, like a pistol, which the operator holds in hand.

The functioning of these devices was never convincingly proved, and their validity is controversial.

MiraTechnology became interested in such devices and, about 2009, started to assemble a team of researchers in order to help clarify the functioning of these curious devices. The studies carried out by these researchers (their leaders are this book’s authors), both experimental and theoretical, resulted in a series of scientific publications listed below. The main conclusion of these studies is that there exist firm principles in science which make possible the functioning of such devices. The results of these studies are presented in this booklet.
