MYSTERIOUS NEW FORM OF TRANSPORTATION BREAKTHROUGH UNVEILED AT NASA TECHNOLOGY SHOW

 America's Latest Commitment to Directing Aerospace Technology
 Toward New Transportation Industries is Spearheaded
 by Gerald Wiegert of Vector Supercar Fame
 BALTIMORE, Nov. 30 ~PRNewswire~ -- The unveiling of the declassified mystery craft which has been promised by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) publication (NASA Tech Briefs) as a prelude to Technology 2002, ends weeks of anticipation and guess work by aerospace industry observers.
 The RamWing(TM) RWX-30 prototype stealth vehicle, which represents years of proprietary personal research and development by Gerald A. Wiegert, has been hailed by the NASA publication as heralding "ideas for 21st century land, sea and air vehicles."
 In keeping with his tradition of utilizing aerospace technology and manufacturing techniques, Wiegert has combined proprietary ideas, aerospace composites and manufacturing techniques, and a number of innovative personal inventions and developmental breakthroughs for his Wing in Ground Effect (WIG) craft.
 The basic concept of the RamWing Dynamic Interface Vehicle (DIV), which is protected by Wiegert's numerous personal patent applications, advances common futuristic concepts in land, sea and air transportation.
 The RamWing prototype at the Baltimore Convention Center addresses many concerns about fuel efficiency, safety and environmental responsibility. "Three fourths of the Earth's surface is covered with water, and that is the new frontier and expansion environment for personal freedom of movement by man in the coming years," asserts Wigert.
 RamWing Technologies Corp., and its imminent volume production, may well spearhead the often-promised effort by the newly elected federal administration to utilizing and redirecting American defense industries to much-needed new transportation systems to create new jobs and new industries and to answer environmental concerns.
 The RamWing is capable of traveling several feet above land or water, in an environmentally safe envelope, at speeds usually associated with air travel, but using only a fraction of the fuel. The ground-effect zone is equal to one half of the wingspan. The Wiegert-designed RamWing Technologies craft measures 30 feet long, with a wing span of 20 feet.
 Manufactured with aerospace composites and materials, the RamWing is expected to attract government financing and political support as a means of directing some military spending to practical commercial ventures, which can help the economy.
 According to Wiegert, RamWing international marketing efforts will be targeted at the personal sport, commercial and military markets.
 Simplicity of operation and low maintenance requirements will make the RamWing, in its various configurations, an ideal platform for a multimission commercial or military vehicle for the United States and other countries' military establishments, with their downsized budgets.
 The RamWing RWX-30 full-size mockup of a flying two- to four- place craft will be the basis for larger multiple-passenger craft with enormous potential for airline-type commuter travel in ground- effect up and down coastal areas, as well as for rivers, lakes and major seaport recreational areas such as the Caribbean and Mexican resorts and other high-profile popular spots for VIP excursion and sightseeing.
 The RWX-30 could be the ultimate sports car for the future, as the water's surface is the only cost-effective unobstructed natural highway system which is fee of congestion and available for man's future needs.
