Due to the existence of the E-Cat or Energy Catalyzer, there is no reason – whatsoever – for traditional hot fusion projects to be proposed or continue. No complicated, expensive “hot fusion” technology can compete. Andrea Rossi’s technology offers a way of producing vast amounts of power while using no radioactive materials, producing no nuclear waste, and emitting no radiation into the environment. In addition, E-Cat reactors can be made from nearly all off the shelf components; once mass produced, they will be dirt cheap. So the announcement by Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works division of their theoretical plans for a Compact Fusion Reactor or, more formally, the “High Beta Fusion Reactor” seems to have been little more than a move of desperation.
