Moller tries his darnest to make things look like they are happening! Take Clic eyewear for instance, Moller's big sponsor. Hugh Power, one of Paul's directors, is heavily involved in Clic. Some sources list him as cofounder or codesigner or whatever. So Moller gets a million $ from Clic (or not, maybe no money exchanged hands at all??) so it looks like Moller is getting support.
I am a bit more preplexed about this Athena Technologies thing. There is a REAL company with this name, that makes, guess what - flight control systems - based in Warrenton, VA! It is even owned by Rockwell Int'l! But of course this is NOT the Athena Moller is JV'd with - that is some (likely fake) company in California that appears to have nothing to do with the Rockwell company. If you investigate the CA company, the searches show it is connected with the John Gong guy. How can two companies have exactly the same name, in the same country, at least?? Rockwell would do likely do something about it if they were aware. If Athena is indeed the China trade facilitor, why does Moller need them when they have director Mike Shanley, whose business "Shanley International Ltd." is supposed to do just that. His co. used to have a website, but now I can't find it. Go figure. Mr. Shanley's security company mentioned in his bio has gone belly up.
In short, as we all know (at least some of us) that everything at Moller is all smoke and mirrors.
