Peter Sumaruck Agrees to Design a Mobile Genset for the Army

Peter Sumaruck Agrees to Design a Mobile Genset to Power the Ground War in Iraq 2002 to 2004, story with current updates.

Thu 24 Jul 2008 09:07 AM PT – Article reconstruction due to pilfering of Zero-Amp Technology website on Feb. 25, 2012 Original article titled: “The Secret Life of Energy – You always get more out than you put in”

Choose not to lust for oil – Journalists and politicians of all persuasions have told us again and again that we must give up our addiction to foreign oil. That was yesterday. This is today. “You can now choose not to lust for oil.”

Zero-Amp Technology will be the most influential discovery of the 21st Century. Inventor Peter Sumaruck has developed a new energy source, one that uses electricity, but does not use fuel or a battery of any kind, for power. Therefore, no recharge or power storage is necessary, and no emissions …so it is pollution free.

This particular part of the story starts in 2002, as Pete Sumaruck walked into Fort Hood Army base in Texas. He had credibility with the military because he had been a covert civilian contractor, trained by Navy SEALs in the 70’s and 80’s, and he had his working prototype with him. He showed them how a small motor using a minute amount of gasoline would give ignition to a generator producing thousands times the initial input .

Input = .019 milliamps of energy; output = 150 amps, thus disproving the law of thermodynamics.

Colonels, then generals were thrilled to elation – everyone could visualize applications for the war effort. They wanted to use Sumaruck’s invention to power the ground wars in Afghanistan and Iraq – power for all facilities from tents to barracks, to food services, to medical outfits, any and everything other than weapons and vehicles – in these beginning days in working with the Army, Sumaruck had not yet developed his application for vehicles.

Output, still 208 – 240 Volts AC. 3-phase. Amp = 150 amps, not-fluctuating, precisely, 60 cycles, always 100% efficiencyReiteration: Output appreciably greater than input, thus disproving the Law of Thermodynamics.

Sumaruck was asked to go before Congress to brief them on his invention. He heartily agreed, but the word was that it would take more than a year to be placed on the calendar, better to start work on a full size, field-ready prototype.

The Army made a deal with Tom Hauke and Earl Martin, owners of McDowell Research in Waco (manufacturer of Ultralife Batteries), Texas, for development facility space.

The Army brought in a 25 kW portable generator, typical of what they were already using for mobile gensets – it ran on 57 gallons of diesel, used and replaced every 24hr. period. Sumaruck used the Army’s platform to built a same-size generator. The Army asked for a 35kW but Pete found he could give the unit extra power to 50kW without increasing the size of any of the components.

Pete said, “I wanted to give the men some extra power, something they could count on in an emergency.”

His unit would run on 6 gallons of gas (not diesel and gas only for each ignition) for a year without refilling. The design called for extra strength, bullet-proofing, huge tires on the platform trailer, and a mechanical design that would allow for quick repairs. If a mobile unit were attacked, a couple-man crew could replace parts in a matter of minutes like a racecar pit crew.

By early 2004, after a 6 month delay for parts, this new electric generator – tested tried and true was ready for mass production. Included in the design – one mobile genset would be able to power 500 slave generators; in this manner the Army would have been able to power the entire Baghdad Green Zone.

Jump to 2011 – using the same concept of slave generators, Pete worked out a process to power 8,500 homes with only one 65kW power production unit.

The prototype was ready for business – But without warning, Hauke and Martin called Sumaruck and his attorney into their office. An order had come down that the project had been cancelled by U.S. Congressman Michael “Chet” Edwards, Democrat, 17th Texas District; and Texas State Senator Kip Averitt, Republican, 22ndDistrict, both men from Waco, Texas.

These two politicians claimed that the Army could not be trusted with this kind of technology, that, “The Army might lose control of their people; men might desert the Army and go into business powering things.” So they opted for a conventional war. Edwards and Averitt also wanted to insure the funding would instead go toward developing additional nuclear power plants in Texas.

Shortly before the notice of the project cancellation, Sumaruck noticed each morning, his hard drive registered entry attempts from the night before. On one night in particular, there were 143 incidents of attempted breakins, trying to get past the security code in the generator’s computer drive. But Sumaruck was still willing to trust “his government” (we should be able to do that; we should have that kind of faith).

Immediately upon hearing the project had been cancelled, Sumaruck went into his work area and wiped the hard drive clean – it still belonged to him; he had not been paid yet for this invention.

Pete did that just in time – someone broke in at night, and destroyed and otherwise removed most of the generator power system, leaving only the portable trailer and some useless junk. It’s a good thing they did not get any drawing or diagrams. All design features remained intact…in Peter Sumaruck’s head.

In 2005, McDowell Research was acquired by Ultralife Batteries. The Waco factory facility was dissolved, and all employees, more than 100, were let go without notice – closed down, shut up.

Ultralife, headquartered in Newark, New York, is contracted by the government to produce portable rechargeable and non-rechargeable lithium ion batteries to supply the military. They also have plants in Abingdon, England and in Shenzhen, China. This gives insight into the far reaching implications of the way war is waged. War may be good for some businesses and not so for others, but if governments insist on going to war, at least they can do so for the lowest cost and leave no negative footprints.

Peter Sumaruck, all his working life, has been a businessman. But during that time, were his legal rights respected. What was protected  the was the interests of those companies who were already war contractors, without regard for the needs and wellbeing of Americans across this country.

If Sumaruck’s invention had become commonplace in 2008, yes, electric cars would have been sold to Israel but not with lithium batteries. Car manufactures by now would be using Sumaruck’s Zero-Amp Technology.

News update – lithium ion batteries are said to cause fires on airplanes.

The cycle continues, May 12, 2012: If Sumaruck’s technology were now in place, emissions levels would be going down, and politicians Averitt and Edwards would be doing exactly what they are doing right now – being lobbyists, same old s… but global warming might even now be showing signs of temperature neutrality.

United States Congressman Chet Edwards had been a member of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Water. You would expect him to favor a new technology that could eliminate air and water pollution and thereby help to reverse Global Warming. Edwards is very pro-military and pro-veterans rights and benefits…so you would expect him to appreciate anything that would make life easier for soldiers.

What if Sumaruck’s technology had continued to power the U.S.Army – This technology could now be used to power vehicles – tanks, trucks, anything on wheels. A real advantage here is that very little in a Sumaruck vehicle can explode. Without flammable fuel onboard (and no tank of highly combustible natural gas), big explosions can be a thing of the past.

Think how many lives could have been saved by this feature alone. Also, with Zero-Amp Technology in place, vehicles would be built in factories powered by the new technology – from assembly lines to the lights in the office.What if Zero-Amp Technology had remained in place, in 2004? By now, the need for oil would be down. Electricity would have replaced oil in powering the ground war in Afghanistan. Food services and medical facilities in Afghanistan…and electricity would have replaced oil and coal for light and heat in the Pentagon, as well as all other Federal buildings in the United States. America would never again be dependent on foreign oil.

The U.S. would be a plentiful and prosperous nation – not debt-ridden and floundering. We would be respected in the world because an American inventor altered the course of global warming.

There would be no more storm-related power outages worldwide.

There would be a calm over the Middle East because the deserts would be green and with abundant water because of inexpensive desalination and drilling.

No more new nuclear power plants. No more pollution from old fuel-consuming power plants. No more holes in the ground for coal and no more oil pipelines – even Canada will be developing ZAT technology instead.

The list of possibilities goes on … into the night…with the light and heat on, whenever you need it.

What has actually happened – Pete Sumaruck has licensed his technology to more than 100 countries worldwide, and those other countries will be creating all the marvels the U.S. could have accomplished. The U.S. is now a “could-have-accomplished” country in a fantasy “could-have-been” world.

What is real is that Zero-Amp Technology will powering those other countries.

Peter Sumaruck says, “They can insult me, deride and debase me. They can try to murder me (20 attempts) …but they can never disprove my invention.” Remember the first Zero-Amp Technology Army generator of 2004: Input = .019 milliamps of energy. Output = 150 amps. See it, watch it work, and believe.
