Is it possible to omit miscellanous or detailed mechanisms which directly depend on the main mechanism of an invention from a patent. e.g. say
A is the main mechanism for an invention,
B mechanism makes
A extremely efficient but is dependent on
A), Is it possible to withold
B as a trade secret(knowing that
A would still work) and still get a valid patent. A possible reason for wanting to do this is
so that non commercial or secret infringements aren't possible without additional knowledge provided by the patent holder via agreements or settlements.
I ask because most patents I have gone through seem not truthful to some point, omissive or even complex to interpret. I am aware the criteria for a successful publication is a full disclosure that can be validated by an expert in the field, I ask also because of non corporate entities e.g. the military infringing on a patent without the awareness of the inventor and the general public(say the invention is deemed weaponizable) since from the patent they can reproduce the mechanism for non commercial purposes in a classified manner.
