I stumbled accross this company's site a while back and I was wondering if anyone could give me some input on the validity of their assertions as I don't have a strong enough physics background to make an accurate judgement:
Specifically I'm looking for some input on the aerospace parts of their site. It sounds really exciting but I don't want to get my hopes up if their science isn't very sound.
Looks dubious matticiousg. They use alot of tech sounding words but the thing is do they work with each other.
One error I noted was they say that the Blackbird SR71 had a "smart" skin to avoid radar, when it didn't and relied on speed and altitude to out run any missiles.
Maybe someone who knows the terms they use will give a better answer.

Possible applications include, but are not limited to: an economic means of sterilizing large quantities of drinking water, city-wide sewage processing, and the elimination of deadly organisms, for example, E-coli, salmonella, and prions.
Sheesh they don't even know what prions are. They are proteins not organisms.

Don't get your hopes up. The Unitel Aerospace site is bunk. They are talking about tapping into zero point energy and reaching superluminal or faster than light speeds. Pure nonsense.
These guys are looking for money from anyone that is dumb enough to give it to them.
The statement at the bottom of this page (http://www.unitelnw.com/aerospc/) pegged by bogosity meter.
We don't even now if these scalar fields really exist yet. Tapping ZPE is more akin to cold fusion and orgone energy. T'aint no way a plasma (a cloud of charged particles) and a laser (coherent light) could affect a putative quantum field.
One of the buggers of quantum mechanics is that objects are inherently random. They can't be easily organised. Bose einstein condensates not withstanding.
