Wilbert Smith And Project Magnet

For some bizarre reason, the Wilbert Smith documents have gained
new life and I’m not sure why. Smith was a Canadian radio
engineer who worked with, or for the government and was well
thought of. He was, for example, the Senior Engineer at the
Canadian Department of Transport. He also, according to
researcher Grant Cameron, was responsible for “Radio Ottawa”
where the Canadian “spies” reported in and which also monitored
Soviet communications. Yes, I wondered about Canadian spies as
well, but that something for another time.

According to the latest information, this memo, written by Smith
on November 21, 1950, has just been recovered from the Archives
of the University of Ottawa. I guess that means that the
document was found in their collection, but it has been
available for a long time. Though originally classified as Top
Secret, it has been downgraded over the years so that it is no
longer classified (which means only that its classification was
downgraded and says nothing about the importance of the
information included in it.) The complete text says:


TOP SECRET -------------- (downgraded to CONFIDENTIAL 15/9/69)


Intra-departmental Correspondence OTTAWA, Ontario, November 21,
1950 Place date File Subject Our file Geo-Magnetics (R.ST.)


For the past several years we have been engaged in the study of
various aspects of radio wave propagation. The vagaries of this
phenomenon have led us into the fields of aurora, cosmic
radiation, atmospheric radio-activity and geo-magnetism. In the
case of geo-magnetics our investigations have contributed little
to our knowledge of radio wave propagation as yet, but
nevertheless have indicated several avenues of investigation
which may well be explored with profit. For example, we are on
the track of a means whereby the potential energy of the earth's
magnetic field may be abstracted and used.

On the basis of theoretical considerations a small and very
crude experimental unit was constructed approximately a year ago
and tested in our Standards Laboratory. The tests were
essentially successful in that sufficient energy was abstracted
from the earth's field to operate a voltmeter, approximately 50
milliwatts. Although this unit was far from being self-
sustaining, it nevertheless demonstrated the soundness of the
basic principles in a qualitative manner and provided useful
data for the design of a better unit.

The design has now been completed for a unit which should be
self- sustaining and in addition provide a small surplus of
power. Such a unit, in addition to functioning as a 'pilot power
plant' should be large enough to permit the study of the various
reaction forces which are expected to develop.

We believe that we are on the track of something which may well
prove to be the introduction to a new technology. The existence
of a different technology is borne out by the investigations
which are being carried on at the present time in relation to
flying saucers.
