Well I tried but it seems they don't want answers, just answers from their people. What I TRIED to say was:

Very well, thank you.
During the last experiments for which the data is public knowledge (WB-6), the highly shielded neutron counters detected sufficient activity to equate to about 4E5 fusion events (2E5 neutrons, 2 fusions per neutron produced) during the run.
This data is available in Dr. Bussard's paper titled "The Advent of Clean Nuclear Fusion: Superperformance Space Power and Propulsion" given at the 57th International Astronautical Congress (IAC 2006).
PS: if anyone is in the Mahalo System, you have my permission to copy this answer. Happy Mahalo Bucks to you.

Might wanna add some layman translations, e.g. 4E5 = 400,000.
