Q & A with Michel Vandenberge of LENR-Cities, regarding Airbus Letter of Intent

Below are some questions I put to Michel Vandenberge, founder of LENR-Cities regarding news about a letter of intent signed between LENR-Cities and Airbus group.

1. When did you start speaking to the Airbus group?

Early this year.

2. How do they see the potential of LENR in their industry?

As regards this agreement, Airbus Group and LENR-Cities have agreed to jointly define any communication about LENR.

No comment today.

3. How can LENR-Cities help Airbus group adopt LENR in its operations?

No comment today.

4. What is the nature of the agreement in the letter of intent between LENR-Cities and the Airbus Group?

Public information have been disclosed (Excerpt from LENR-Forum):

“LENR-Cities was clear that, at this stage, the objective is to get the endorsement of Airbus Group so that industrialists know Airbus interest, to get them joining and working with the ecosystem”.

“Later Airbus Group might directly fund some projects.”

“The benefit to be involved in the Ecosystem, as Michel explains, is to anticipate impact of coming development, that is to say to mitigate risks, prepare the future, and to be part of an industrial ecosystem to address own needs.”

“Other information are confidential (Remind that a LOI is a private agreement. Excerpt from Wikipedia: “LOIs resemble written contracts, but are usually not binding on the parties in their entirety. Many LOIs, however, contain provisions that are binding, such as non-disclosure agreements or a covenant to negotiate in good faith”.”

    Airbus has won the (NASA and Google sponsored) CAFE Foundation 2014 PRADA award for their E-Fan developments. I am certain they know of NASA Doug Wells and Boeing LENR aircraft development.

    “PADA Lectures Highlight Innovation” by DEAN SIGLER on 08/04/2014
    blog.cafefoundation.org/pada-lectures-highlight-innovation/

    The 2014 Personal Aircraft Design Academy (PADA) dinner and awards ceremony, the latter held in the Vette Theater at the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Museum, highlighted design innovation and the possible commercial exploitation of new technology.

    Dr. Brien Seeley, Founder and President of the CAFE Foundation, hosted the evening and introduced your CAFE blog editor, who gave an overview of innovations in aircraft, avionics and powerplants he’d encountered on his daily hikes around Wittman Field.

    Dr. Seeley had the honor of presenting this year’s PADA trophy to John O’Leary, Vice President and General Manager of Airbus Americas Engineering (AAE), for the parent company’s development of the E-Fan, a twin-motored personal airplane that has been a highlight of the Paris and Farnborough air shows. With the flying displays behind it, the proof-of-concept machine will be the basis for two-seat (E-Fan 2.0) and four-seat (4.0) production variants that will bring smooth electric power to private flight. The two-seater, which can double as a training vehicle, will be in production by the end of 2017. The larger 4.0 would be introduced two years later.

    “low energy nanoscale reactions” – freebasing cocaine?

  • mcloki

    I think it’s their marketing teams term. I like it better than Low Energy Nuclear Reactions. The word nuclear is a huge boogyman in the US and Canada. Every opposing group would use it, accompanied by pictures of Chernobyl, Three mile Island, Fukushima to scare the general population from adopting LENR.
    Why fight it. Just use the new term and move on.

    • Daniel Maris

      We don’t for sure they are reactions related directly to the nuclei so seems reasonable to me.

  • Gerard McEk

    Maybe this is for the German speaking countries who’s people are radiated by the the word nuclear? 😉

    Frank you are a wonder! thanks for all you do for us!

    It is marvellous that a huge company like Airbus shows interest in LENR and even starts to participate in LENR-Cities. Looking at L-C’s website, the company still looks in an infant state (http://lenr-cities.com/index.html#AndNow), but I expect that such a big sponsor will give them big wings to take off. Anyway Airbus surely puts the noses of other companies in the LENR direction. How long can the main stream media and the scientific world wait before also paying more attention to LENR?

      from my experience, few years.
      They wait for something as big as Lehman Brother.

      Did you know
      – Subprime crisis was described in detail and ridiculed by Roubini around 2005
      – it was happening in 2007
      – it was mainstream only with Lehman Brother
