Sorry to be late to answer, I have a big backlog of messages on my computer. 
For some time I was working more with metal parts than with computer.

I don't look at customers, Cryonics is and will remains a small club. 
Uploading will be even more limited. Most american may be englued in churches 
and similar places. France is not far more different (may be less bigot). In 
my workplace there is at least a muslim who rank me between a dog and a pig. 
I am more interested in hell that in heaven, I have plenty different hell 
versions, so that nearly all unwanted will fly away from my project

Only primitive spirits are interested in religions. The brain reader 
precursor will be an astronomical instrument. Right now, few astronomers are 
interested in religions. More, for them, national origin has low value.

To my knowledge, the intensity interferometer has been invented by Robert 
Hanbury Brown, an english scientist. Interferometry imaging has been first 
experimented in the speckle interferometer invented by a french astronomer. 
Nothing in that technology comes from US. 

Well, the BR technology may well be as much closed as a military one, even if 
such people are the first to be rejected from its use.
