New Partnership Advances Scientific Understandings of UAP/UFOs
(YourDigitalWall Editorial):- Las Vegas, Nevada Sep 1, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – UAP Expeditions Group, (UAPx) announced a limited partnership with the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU) to collaborate on data analysis, resources, and intelligence. The primary purpose of UAPx is to research the UAP phenomena as defined by the United States Government. This limited partnership between UAPx and the SCU is a significant step towards realizing their goal of inspiring and educating scientists and academia in the participation of data collection regarding UAP. While UAPx successfully designs, tests, implements, and utilizes specialized equipment to fill gaps in sensor technology identified by the United States Government, analyzing this data requires thousands of hours of effort. Partnering with the SCU enables a data-sharing and analysis agreement to review UAPx’s post-expedition data and help bring an understanding of UAP to the scientific and academic communities through peer-reviewed publications.
UAPx President, Gary Voorhis, stated, “I am excited about the partnership with the SCU. They were a big help to me personally with their analysis of the 2004 Nimitz case. Richard Hoffman, one of the Executive Board members of SCU and now also a member of UAPx has always been a great sounding board for me when discussing processes and procedures and for general advice. I respect both Richard and the SCU. This partnership is perfect for both organizations.”
The SCU is a think tank of over 200 scientists, researchers, and professionals stretching across organizations, governments, and industries, providing scientific case analysis in support of witnesses, government entities, and others looking for an understanding and explanation of UAP. Their dedication to the rigorous scientific examination of data through scientific principles, methodologies, and practices made the SCU the most logical choice for a partnership with UAPx. Hoffman’s addition to the UAPx team enables further reach and success in becoming the leading civilian organization recognized as subject matter experts on Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and UAP.
Rich Hoffman is thoroughly supportive and excited about the relationship between UAPx and SCU. He states, “Scientific study needs scientific data from credible sources in order to advance our understanding of this phenomenon. We have long been subjected to blurry photos and videos from the general public and had only anecdotal evidence to work with. UAPx brings technology to the forefront and provides us with new views of the objects being observed in a controlled multisensory approach.”
Dr. Matthew Szydagis, Research Scientist for UAPx, referencing this partnership, stated, “For far too long, there has existed a negative stigma in both the scientific and academic communities, as well as toxic divisiveness in the existing UAP community that can be seen in the sheer number of non-collaborating UAP organizations. This partnership between the SCU and UAPx is one small step in unifying minds.”
This alliance comes at a crucial time for the Study of UAP, which is currently gaining mainstream interest with the American public. On June 25, 2021, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released their “Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.” The report was written in response to the provision in Senate Report 116-233, accompanying the Intelligence Authorization Act (IAA) for the Fiscal Year 2021, and mandated that the ODNI, in consultation with the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF), was to submit an intelligence assessment of the threat posed by UAP and the progress the Department of Defense Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) has made in understanding this threat. The UAPTF was later reprovisioned as the Airborne Object Identification and Management Group (AOIMSG.) On July 15, 2022, Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks, in coordination with the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), amended her original direction to the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence & Security by renaming and expanding the scope of the AOIMSG to the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), due to the enactment of the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2022, which included a provision to establish an office, in coordination with DNI, with responsibilities that were broader than those assigned initially to the AOIMSG.
The UAPTF report ushered in a new era of public interest in UAP, with a tremendous amount of angst wherein the United States Government was not transparent or purposely obfuscated UAP data from the general public. The report specifically stated the “…limited amount of high-quality reporting on UAP hampers our ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAP…because the reporting lacked sufficient specificity, [we] ultimately recognized that a unique, tailored reporting process was required to provide sufficient data for analysis of UAP events.” Combining resources in the partnership between UAPx and the SCU enables the civilian organizations to fill the gaps identified by the Government.
After decades of silence, Congress recently convened hearings on UFOs and UAP. As a result, congressional mandates now push agencies into examining how offices and departments handle reporting, classification, study, and information sharing. In addition, new legislation is being created, making it more straightforward for service members to report their experiences with UAPs and UFOs.
UAPx and the SCU believe the action taken by Congress and pending legislation bolster the credibility of their study and mission goals, thus enabling more significant resources to discover the truth underlying the UAP activity.
“Visibility is important. However, visibility with scientific accuracy and integrity in data collection is paramount,” stated Dr. Kevin Knuth the Vice President of UAPx. “It’s one thing to talk about UFOs and UAP, and it’s another to develop processes, technologies, and organizations capable of adhering to scientific principles in a way that advances discovery, where the scientific and academic communities can contribute without fear of repercussions and taboos – this partnership goes a long way toward the realization of that goal.”
