The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project have posted a very positive assessment of this week’s ICCF-18 conference on their Facebook page. They see it as being a ‘watershed’ event with convincing evidence of excess heat being presented by Defkalion and Takahashi (see here), and an important advance for the principle of Live Open Science which the group is practicing. MFMP was founded last year at the ICCF conference in Korea, and seem to have the support of many players in the LENR research field. They report being offered equipment, IP and technology by attendees at the ICCF.
They also make an interesting statement regarding independent testing of Defkalion’s technology:
We have been told by a trusted source, whom we can not disclose, that there will be an independent report of DGT Hyperion technology published at some point. It is understood that some respected university professors have been involved. We certainly hope this is true and that we can have some detailed, rigorous analysis to support the promising live demonstrations of recent days.
Defkalion’s presentation this week was more of a demonstration than a validation — although Mats Lewan did a fine job providing an independent assesment of things he was able to see. An Independent test along the lines of the recent E-Cat test would provide even firmer evidence of the DGT Hyperion technology. This is the first I have heard of such a test, and from the statement here by the MFMP it sounds like this test may be imminent, if not already concluded. We’ll have to wait and see.
