    It's not so much a plan as a possibility under investigation, and the
Navy is still very interested, as are other branches of the US military and
no doubt those in other countries as well. We're not yet quite up to the
speed and material properties to make it entirely practical, but it will
come to pass. This is one reason that the Navy and other Defense agencies
have been supporting fabricator research generously for a long time.
