The US government is going to concede that the strange objects observed by Navy pilots are genuinely unidentifiable. Not only has it been impossible to pinpoint their origin, but the physics that UFOs have been rejecting have also been the core cause of existential doubt. A significant chunk of the scientific community is perplexed. Dr. Hal Puthoff’s recent SCU presentation included a slide stating that the intelligence community was now passing the UAP problem on to the scientific community. With so much uncertainty in the air, people are starting to wonder about the nature of our reality once again, for the first time since maybe the industrial revolution. It could be argued that the last significant human expedition was to the Moon in 1969. It’s been a long time since mankind has had the chance to collectively ponder about reality, which has once again eluded us, as evidenced by the UAP enigma.

The fascination with the skies has been widespread and long-lasting. Humans are motivated to explore the unknown, find new planets, test the limits of science and technology, and then push even farther. For ages, our civilization has benefited from the intangible urge to explore and test the boundaries of what we know and where we have gone. However, due to a lack of a prime directive, this yearning for the unknown has been repressed over the previous few decades. When it comes to the subject of UFOs, society may have lost a degree of inventiveness during the previous 50 years that will be tough to recover from. Because of denial and a concerted propaganda attempt to discredit the entire issue by the world’s major governments, there simply haven’t been enough resources committed to probably the most important question ever posed by humanity, to itself.

With the US government admitting that it requires help in understanding the UAP issue, it might take the combined might of the entire nation to make significant progress. The humble admission could enable a child‘s casual inquiry and astonishment. A basic human curiosity that has the potential to transform a whole generation into scientists, engineers, and maybe even professions far nobler, that have yet to be invented.

America has traditionally depended on its’ own free spirit and ingenuity to aid in concerns of national security and sometimes, even national pride. Like when — Hickam Jr., a coal miner’s son who, despite his father’s desires, was motivated by the launch of Sputnik 1 in 1957 to pursue rocketry and later became a NASA engineer who assisted in transporting fellow Americans to the Moon. Similarly, initiatives are coming from the metaphorical “American Garage” that have the potential to have a massive influence on humanity. To entice, film, and converse with non-human intelligence(s), the most advanced technology, and human knowledge are being put to the test. Until recently, these sensors, algorithms, and equipment were exclusively only available to Defense Departments. Thanks to real American ingenuity, these technologies will now be employed in backyards, personal watercraft, and cars. Several of these initiatives appear to be supervised by specialists who appear to have a thorough understanding of the Phenomenon, both with and without high-level US security credentials.

Hacking UFOs

Dr. Robert McGwier, affectionately known as “Science Bob,” is an avid amateur radio operator (call sign N4HY), the former Director of Research for the Ted and Karyn Hume Center for National Security and Technology, and a Research Professor in Virginia Tech’s Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. One of the nation’s leading experts in national security applications of wireless and space systems. His specialty is radio frequency communications and digital signal processing. Many of Dr. McGwier’s students have written research papers and completed projects that have aided the United States in keeping its sensitive information secure and citizens safe. “Sometimes the projects and papers that my students work on are kept within the United States intelligence infrastructure,” Bob mentioned to me over the phone conversation. His fingerprints are almost certainly all over several sensitive imaging devices and their algorithms. Dr. McGwier, like an increasing number of officials with security clearances who are intrigued by the UAP subject, got interested in the Phenomenon after hearing anecdotal tales (and sometimes seeing photographs) from close friends within the intelligence community.

Along with these findings and an increased desire to understand the Phenomenon from the ground up, Dr. McGwier created a business to attempt novel techniques to collect data about UAP. “I know how to train the A. I to look for birds, planes, and most known objects in the sky,” he told me, adding that “the challenge about ten years ago was that putting together all these sensors and equipment would be impossible economically, but we’ve covered so much ground now…it’s off the Richter Scale!”

Dr. McGwier was remarking on how consumer-grade technology is now affordable enough to construct a network of smart sensors and gather digital signatures from possible off-world vehicles.

Sky Hub’s aim is simple: to link a network of sensors owned by academics and hobbyists all over the world and utilize the most advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning to make sense of the data. In 2019, a team of astronomers and physicists used a similar collaboration across many sites across the world to image a black hole for the first time.

World’s First Mobile UAP Tracker

Jeremy McGowan is a professional observer, investigator, and US Air Force veteran. He created the O.S.I.R.I.S., which Luis Elizondo described as the “world’s first mobile UAP tracker” (Off-road Scientific Investigation & Response Informatics System).

The World’s First Mobile UAP Tracker

His connection with the Phenomenon began in 1995 when he witnessed an odd occurrence while serving in the United States Air Force in Jordan. Jeremy was protecting what is thought to be a recovered nuclear weapon when he saw a UAP with exceptional flying abilities that were inexplicable given the existing known rules of flight and physics. Jeremy never forgot his strange experience for the next 25 years. He was so perplexed that even after all this time, he attempted to locate and identify the person who had been with him that night on his deployment. Although the inability to identify the second witness has not dampened Mr. McGowan’s determination to have a better grasp of what is going on.

Jeremy, not one to wait for an answer from the government, built his own UAP tracker, which uses a Sky Hub unit as its backbone, along with a slew of additional scientific data measuring equipment. As a skilled investigator, a previous pilot, and equipped with a little technological expertise, Jeremy presses forward, seeking answers and investigating one of existences most interesting and mysterious components, “What is the Phenomenon?”.

“I don’t think the government will give us anything in this report,” McGowan laments. “It’s either so complicated that it’ll be tough to manage and govern, or they have no understanding what’s going on,” he continued.

Jeremy and the OSIRIS can be found traveling throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico in his one-of-a-kind vehicle, investigating, classifying, recording, and experiencing this phenomenon — all with the singular goal of providing answers to the world and not allowing data to become obscured or hidden from the world.

Clandestine Waters

Anyone who has followed the UAP/UFO subject in any depth is aware that there is a strong link to water and the oceans. Former AATIP Director Luis Elizondo has also hinted at the probable roots  of the phenomenon in the oceans. “We need everyone, all hands on deck,” says the founder of Clandestine Waters, a first-of-its-kind publicly funded and operated scientific research expedition independent of any government or institutional oversight to gather evidence of the intelligent source behind Unidentified Submerged Objects (USOs) or Unidentified Aerial Particles (UAPs).

Modern man generally travels via the sky and the sea for quite different purposes. ECW is attempting to discover whether the same is true of the UAP/USO phenomena. Under the waves may be our greatest bet for finding true answers.

There is a clear relationship between our seas and the UFO phenomena, and the waters off the coast of San Diego may play a significant role in that connection. Not only our military has had contacts in this area, but fishermen and citizens have also had several sightings and interactions.

To gather and analyze data, ECW will use a chartered research vessel and support boats to deploy advanced underwater drones, sonar mapping equipment, and specialized sensors, among other technologies.

Thie expedition will be live broadcast 24 hours a day, with several dedicated cameras for the public to pick from positioned on different vessels and strategically placed buoys throughout the adventure. An interactive conversation with expedition team ambassadors will also be available for anybody who wishes to engage in real-time as the event unfolds. Throughout the trip, every data collected will be made instantly available to the public via ECW’s website, giving the public the chance to study the data and be a part of future discoveries.

Perceptual Curiosity

Curiosity comes in many forms or flavors, and they are not always motivated by the same factors. Perceptual curiosity is a term that has been coined. That’s the kind of interest we have when something surprises us or doesn’t quite fit with what we know or believe we know. This is perceived as an uncomfortable state, an adversity state. It’s like an itch that has to be scratched. That is why we attempt to learn more to satisfy that sort of curiosity.

The potential of ambiguity that is going to come with the UAP report could potentially create a void that will be filled with perceptual curiosity and humanity can wonder once again.

The US recently released its highly anticipated Pentagon UAP report, but it wasn’t much more than a 9 page rundown of what has been known for decades. Regardless, for many, what was promising was that the UFO subject was being taken seriously again – and perhaps many more scientists might get involved.

For decades many have been warning about leaving UFO disclosure in the hands of a government that likes to use crisis’ or current events to expand its defense budgets. Further, why would we suddenly expect a government, who has been lying about this subject for 70 years, to suddenly come forth with the truth? What would inspire them to suddenly change their mind?

Perhaps it’s because the search for ET is an idea who’s time has truly come. We’ve reporting on this for over 13 years, and are mongst a community of researchers who have been encouraging humanity to look at the evidence for more than 70 years. It feels like an idea that human collective consciousness is more than ready to explore.

The impact the ET question has on our individual and collective worldview has the power to truly change the way we view ourselves and the meaning of life here on earth. Think of the implications answers to this question could have on how we set up and run our society as well. Technology, culture, collaboration etc – I spoke about this more in great detail in my extended interview for Greer’s. prior film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind here.

Now, a new documentary from Dr. Steven Greer, directed by my good friend Michael Mazzola, seeks to explore what the films calls “the current government and media disinformation campaign promoting 3 big lies:”

1. We do not know what these UAPs/ UFOs are. WE DO.
2. Humans cannot make craft that can maneuver like UFOs. WE CAN and WE DO.
3. The UFOs are a threat. THEY ARE NOT.

Bold statements. Watch the film below and see what resonates most with you.

Pentagon UFO Report: Explanations Fall Into One of Five Categories. Aliens Not Ruled Out

So is it aliens? The long awaited Pentagon UFO report is here, and the executive summary alone gives insight into the nature of this report from US Intelligence Communities.

The limited amount of high-quality reporting on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) hampers our ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAP. The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) considered a range of information on UAP described in U.S. military and IC (Intelligence Community) reporting, but because the reporting lacked sufficient specificity, ultimately recognized that a unique, tailored reporting process was required to provide sufficient data for analysis of UAP events.

Essentially, the report aims to acknowledge 16 years of this phenomenon, while leaving out the 70 years it has been studying this phenomenon.

Still, as per the report, the U.S. government can’t explain 143 of the 144 cases of unidentified flying objects reported by their own military planes.

It acknowledges that “a handful of UAP appear to demonstrate advanced technology.”

In 18 incidents, described in 21 reports, observers reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics. Some UAP appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernible means of propulsion. In a small number of cases, military aircraft systems processed radio frequency (RF) energy associated with UAP sightings.

The UAPTF holds a small amount of data that appear to show UAP demonstrating acceleration or a degree of signature management. Additional rigorous analysis are necessary by multiple teams or groups of technical experts to determine the nature and validity of these data. We are conducting further analysis to determine if breakthrough technologies were demonstrated.

It goes on to drop the last 16 years of measuring this phenomenon into 5 key categories, non of which mention non human intelligent life, but that is technically a bin for it.

The five categories are,

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. UNCLASSIFIED 6 UNCLASSIFIED

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.

The report does state, rather predictably, that some observations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception and require additional rigorous analysis.

As expected, they are claiming that “UAP clearly pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to U.S. national security.” What’s odd about this statement is that this phenomenon has been known about for 70 years, yet not a single aviation incident has occurred that anyone knows of, so why are they a threat to flight all of a sudden?

Further, one could expect “a threat to nation security” would be mentioned  for two reasons: on a political level this means more attention will be paid to the issue, and there has long been political leverage gained from presenting certain global events as a threat to ‘get other things done.’

In this case, the report makes mention of foreign adversary threats should these incidences fall under that category, claiming these could be breakthrough or disruptive technology.

The report contends that further scientific analysis and more focused measurement apparatus would be required to answer some of the unanswered questions surrounding ‘the few’ instances where UAP performed ‘impossible’ maneuvers.

There is likely a classified version of this report that would be in much greater detail. The question is why after 70 years is the public still in the dark?

Perhaps the takeaway here is that although this is essentially a repeat of Project Blue Book of the 50s and 60s, we are now in a time where it’s being talked about again. Further, we are in an age where information spreads a lot faster and a lot further then back then. Perhaps that will be the kicker this time around.

We’ll have more detailed coverage throughout the day and into tomorrow.

The long awaited Pentagon UFO report is set to be released from the U.S. Intelligence Community. Some of those waiting expect a moment of acknowledgment, but perhaps nothing all that new, while others are hoping for a much deeper admission of non-human intelligent life. Time will tell.

In the wake, Senator Marco Rubio has issued the following statement:

Rubio Statement on UAP Report

Miami, FL — Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Vice Chairman Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement on the unclassified report on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) issued by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).

“For years, the men and women we trust to defend our country reported encounters with unidentified aircraft that had superior capabilities, and for years their concerns were often ignored and ridiculed,” Rubio said. “This report is an important first step in cataloging these incidents, but it is just a first step. The Defense Department and Intelligence Community have a lot of work to do before we can actually understand whether these aerial threats present a serious national security concern.”

In 2020, Rubio, as Acting Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, included report language in the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 directing ODNI to submit a report to congressional intelligence and armed services committees on unidentified aerial phenomena.

We’ll have full coverage of the what’s in the report later today, if the report is released, and of course in the coming days as it will inevitably require much analysis and discussion. Sign up to our email list and follow us on Twitter for more to come.
