Abstract : A communication system utilizing neutrino particles as the information transferring agent. A beam of high energy neutrinos is generated by nuclear interactions using a high energy proton accelerator. The beam is modulated so as to carry information and is directed along a straight line path to the receiving station. The receiving station detects the beam by the Cerenkov radiation it causes to thereby receive the information carried by the beam. (Author)
