The Defense Department announced that they are launching a new team to counter UFO threats. They will investigate foreign objects in restricted airspace that could threaten flight safety and national security.
Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks proclaimed the creation of an organization to manage government efforts to “detect, identify and attribute objects of interest,” formally known as unidentified aerial phenomena.
As the successor to the Navy’s UAP task force, the team is known as the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group. Furthermore, the team is supervised by senior military and intelligence community officials.
Development Of The Team To Counter UFO Threats
The team’s development comes after a report released in June declared the military could not explain over 140 cases of airborne phenomena sighted since 2004. This includes some that exhibited unusual flight characteristics.
The Pentagon reported the challenges of collecting data necessary to assess and identify the unidentified objects. Including the stigma pilots face when reporting UFO sightings and inconsistencies in reporting.
The DOD’s release of several unclassified videos of unidentified phenomena fueled conspiracies and visits from extraterrestrials.
However, defense officials believe several more likely explanations, including technologies deployed by Russia, China, or other entities.
Other possibilities include birds, balloons, drones, natural atmospheric phenomena. In addition, US government or industry developmental programs. However, officials said “other” categories might defy explanation without scientific advances.
The new team will address missing details disrupting further study of the issue. This includes a need for regulated reporting across the federal government and improved collection and analysis.
