I have been contacted by Sandia asking my opinion. I said "Thumbs down. No way Jose." Also the physics in the paper is almost certainly complete nonsense. No one I know understands it. It seems to be a variation on the Nazi Bell Experiment and the Podkletnov stuff that came from it as described by Nick Cook in "The Hunt for Zero Point" -- all very dubious stuff of course.
Obviously the Skinwalker high-strangeness reported by NIDS doesn't need any Z-Machine or humongous magnetic fields.
*A space propulsion researcher at Sandia National Laboratories in New Mexico does think it might be possible, though, using an X-ray generator called the Z machine which "could probably generate the necessary field intensities and gradients".
