The Pentagon has launched a new task force responsible for identifying and explaining the origins of UFOs flying over US airspace.
Defense officials revealed Tuesday that the new group will replace the US Navy’s unnamed Aerial Phenomena Task Force.
It was created to help officials in Washington gain understanding and insight into unknown airborne incidents.
The new body is named the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group.
Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks said the AOIMSG will locate and identify objects in special-use airspace (SUA) and assess any potential national security threats.
a Defense Department statement Said: “Intrusion by any airborne object into our SUA poses flight and operational security concerns, and may pose national security challenges.
“DOD takes reports of intrusions — by any airborne object, identified or unknown — very seriously and investigates each one.”
The group will investigate whether the strange ornaments reportedly buzzing in the US military are unknown technology from Russia and China, or possibly something foreign.
UFOs are now considered an issue of national security – decades after the subject was viewed as a trivial conspiracy theory.
The UAP Task Force report published by the Pentagon in the summer acknowledged that there have been unexplained encounters between the US military and mysterious objects – such as the infamous 2004 TikTok sighting.
The report, which analyzed 144 alleged sightings, did not explicitly mention a possible alien connection, but could not rule out the possible hypothesis.
The current consensus in the world of science is that no one can say for sure whether aliens exist or not.
The Director of National Intelligence (DNI), Avril Haines, acknowledged that there are aspects of strange encounters that the intelligence community does not understand.
She told the Our Future in Space Forum in Washington DC: “The main issues that Congress and others are concerned about are (safety of flight concerns and counterintelligence issues).
“There’s always the question, ‘Is there something else we don’t understand, that could come from the supernatural?’
Haines appeared to be a little hesitant when mentioning the word “supernaturally.”
NASA Administrator Bill Nelson acknowledged that UFOs may be alien technology from a parallel universe.
He said: I have spoken to them [military] Pilot and they know they’ve seen something, and their radars are off on it.
remains a mystery
“And they don’t know what is. And we don’t know what it is. We hope it’s not an adversary on Earth who has that kind of technology.”
Air Force Captain Robert Salas believed that UFOs were sending a message to humanity when he claimed that a giant orb set off nuclear weapons that were under his control.
The alleged incident took place on 24 March 1967 at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana.
He reported that he was in charge of ten missiles and that when the “object” was in the sky, he lost weapons due to a “control failure”.
Salas called the shutdown an “impossible event” because he claimed the Minutemen missiles were operating on independent systems.
The Pentagon dossier said the unexplained aerial view could be secret aircraft from China or Russia – or a “non-governmental” terrorist group.
Nick Pope, a former Defense Ministry official, previously pointed out: “Whether Russia is sending drones dangerously close to aircraft carriers or it’s actually something from afar, it’s a defense and national security issue and you can’t dismiss it.” can do.”
Republican lawmaker Tim Burchett warned that “something is going on that we can’t handle”.
