UAP: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena
Late Friday afternoon, 06/25/21, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released the long awaited “unclassified report” of the Preliminary Assessment of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.
Even though their report didn’t say ET was responsible for the unknown craft sightings, what they did say was, out of all 144 sighting cases given to them from USG sources or U.S. industry development programs, only “one” case was identifiable, a large deflating balloon, the other 143 cases fall into the “Other” category.
Excerpts from the UAP Document 25 June 2021:
UAP PROBABLY LACK A SINGLE EXPLANATION:
The UAP documented in this limited dataset demonstrate an array of aerial behaviors, reinforcing the possibility there are multiple types of UAP requiring different explanations. Our analysis of the data supports the construct that if and when individual UAP incidents are resolved they will fall into one of five potential explanatory categories:
- Airborne Clutter: These objects include birds, balloons, recreational unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), or airborne debris like plastic bags that muddle a scene and affect an operator’s ability to identify true targets, such as enemy aircraft.
- Natural Atmospheric Phenomena: Natural atmospheric phenomena includes ice crystals, moisture, and thermal fluctuations that may register on some infrared and radar systems.
- USG or Industry Developmental Programs: Some UAP observations could be attributable to developments and classified programs by U.S. entities. We were unable to confirm, however, that these systems accounted for any of the UAP reports we collected.
- Foreign Adversary Systems: Some UAP may be technologies deployed by China, Russia, another nation, or a non-governmental entity.
- Other: Although most of the UAP described in our dataset probably remain unidentified due to limited data or challenges to collection processing or analysis, we may require additional scientific knowledge to successfully collect on, analyze and characterize some of them. We would group such objects in this category pending scientific advances that allowed us to better understand them. The UAPTF intends to focus additional analysis on the small number of cases where a UAP appeared to display unusual flight characteristics or signature management.
UAP THREATEN FLIGHT SAFETY AND, POSSIBLY, NATIONAL
UAP pose a hazard to safety of flight and could pose a broader danger if some instances represent sophisticated collection against U.S. military activities by a foreign government or demonstrate a breakthrough aerospace technology by a potential adversary.
Potential National Security Challenges:
We currently lack data to indicate any UAP are part of a foreign collection program or indicative of a major technological advancement by a potential adversary. We continue to monitor for evidence of such programs given the counter intelligence challenge they would pose, particularly as some UAP have been detected near military facilities or by aircraft carrying the USG’s most advanced sensor systems.
The UAPTF (Department of Defense Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force) is looking for novel ways to increase collection of UAP cluster areas when U.S. forces are not present as a way to baseline “standard” UAP activity and mitigate the collection bias in the dataset. One proposal is to use advanced algorithms to search historical data captured and stored by radars. The UAPTF also plans to update its current interagency UAP collection strategy in order bring to bear relevant collection platforms and methods from the DoD and the IC.
Increase Investment in Research and Development:
The UAPTF has indicated that additional funding for research and development could further the future study of the topics laid out in this report. Such investments should be guided by a UAP Collection Strategy, UAP R&D Technical Roadmap, and a UAP Program Plan.
The Preliminary Assessment is basically saying, we don’t know what the objects are. It’s also saying, our current technology cannot identify them, so we are requesting funding for research and development to better understand what UAPs are. They’re basically saying, they are a security threat because we don’t know who controls them, so we need to gather more data.
UFO’s have been reported throughout our history in the USA, from Native American stories talking about Star Travelers to the famous Foo Fighters of World War II. What ever this phenomena is or whoever this phenomena is, it posed no direct threat to the citizens of this country. Sure there are stories from experiencers and eye witnesses, but obviously nothing as drastic as our COVID virus scare. It appears we pose more danger to ourselves, than they do to us.
One thing I would like to say to the people of science who look at this topic with tunnel vision eyes is, “It’s time to stop being debunkers and start being scientists”. Some are so easy to say that everything can be explained but the actual technology based on your science, says you’re wrong. Current advanced technology can not identify these UAPs or UFO’s, so if they can’t identity them, then how can you? You can’t think faster than a computer, but can only base your opinions through science. Now current science says your opinions are being challenged.
It’s ok to say, “We don’t know what these things are”. It’s not ok to say, “People who see UAPs or UFO’s are crazy”. Who’s the crazy one, the individuals who witness this phenomena, or the ones who refuse to acknowledge there’s no direct answer yet?
Based on this report our military, our government is simply saying, we need to step-up our current technology to properly identify these UAP’s. We need to look at previous sighting data so we can understand it more and maybe see trends or commonalities.
We need to learn!
Investigators as myself have seen these objects and even communicated with them, we have our ideas and opinions, but we have to be analytical too! We have to remove any possibility what was reported or experienced was not our or foreign technology, or a natural phenomenon. It looks like the Director of National Intelligence is now following in our footprints and not the debunkers.
This is a first step and a big one for the US Government to say, “We don’t know what these flying objects are, or why they’re here, but we are willing to learn”.
And “dammit”, that’s good enough for me.
