Maybe a military grade blender? It chops! It dices! It puree's!Hi,
what was it,a flying battle rail ?,it was from Mr. William Hale.
Very reminiscent of the Project Kingfisher studies and of the AUM-N-2 Petrel in particular.William Hunter A. Boyd of Kensington, MD, submitted a lot of patent applications on behalf of the US government (Department of the Navy and Department of the Army). Most of them seem to be 'ornamental design' patents for missiles. That makes it sound like the US military was trying to patent all feasible layouts for missiles to avoid having to pay industry for their patents.
As an example, attached are patent drawings from Des. 180,889 patented 03 Sept. 1957.
