2025 is a study designed to comply with a directive from the chief of staff of the Air Force to examine the concepts, capabilities, and technologies the United States will require to remain the dominant air and space force in the future. Presented on 17 June 1996, this report was produced in the Department of Defense school environment of academic freedom and in the interest of advancing concepts related to national defense. The views expressed in this report are those of the authors and do not reflect the official policy or position of the United States Air Force, Department of Defense, or the United States government.

These three guys "Dr. Bernard J. Eastlund, President. Eastlund Scientific Enterprises, William C. Gough, FMBR Chairman of the Board, and Dr. George H. Miley, Professor. University of Illinois" have known each other for years and colaborated on projects with the DOE, DARPA, and various fusion energy projects. Dr. Eastlund is one of the patent holders (US Patent #4,686,605) that led to the development of the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program HAARP, which became a project of the DOE, and today is run by Ratheon.
Interestingly they were all concerned with the environment and believed that fusion energy could be used to convert our pollutents to their original elements and came up with a new technology called the...
The new technology that we are suggesting to close the materials cycle is the use of the
ultra-high temperature plasmas developed by the fusion power research program. The
temperature of such ionized gas plasmas are hotter that the core of our sun. A technique
for achieving the objective of closing the materials cycle from use to reuse was
discovered in 1968 by Dr. Bernard Eastlund and William C. Gough, and was named the
Fusion Torch. (Eastlund & Gough, 1969; Miley, 1976) The fusion torch concept consists
of a chamber designed to contain an ultra-high temperature plasma (ionized gas). This
plasma can be produced by the use of injectors that accelerate particles to energies that
create a dilute plasma equivalent to many hundreds of millions of degrees.
