After months of investigation, the Pentagon is ready to prepare a report on the observation of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP), better known as “unidentified flying objects” or UFO…
But don’t expect a big disclosure of the secret technologies of aliens and extraterrestrial spaceships. The purpose of the report is to establish standards for recording the appearance of mysterious objects and to determine whether these objects pose a threat to national security.
In 2020, the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee called for an investigation into the UAP in Fiscal Year 2021 Exploration Permit Act… According to the document, the committee members were concerned that “the federal government does not have a single, comprehensive process for collecting and analyzing intelligence on unidentified aerial phenomena, despite the potential threat.”
After the law was passed on December 21, 2020, the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defense had 180 days to prepare a “unclassified” report for the committee on the current status of UAP observations and protocols. Live Science previously reported – and that six-month deadline expires this month.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio was acting chairman of the intelligence committee when the law was drafted and passed and he ordered UAP investigations because he saw them as a critical national security issue, Rubio told journalist Bill Whitaker on CBS’s 60 Minutes in May …
“Anything that enters the airspace, which should not be, is a threat,” Rubio said. “I want us to take this seriously and have a process to take this seriously. I want us to have a process to analyze the data every time it comes in. “
In April 2020, the US Navy released three videos of UFO sightings in 2004 and 2015; The clips were titled “FLIR”, “GOFAST” and “GIMBAL” and showed a spacecraft flying at hypersonic speed with no visible means of propulsion, Live Science reported. (The three videos were previously posted online in 2017 and 2018 by the UFO Research Group To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science.)
“There are frames and records of objects in the sky, about which we do not know exactly what they are – we cannot explain how they moved, their trajectory. They did not have an easily explainable pattern, ”former President Barack Obama said in May. , in an appearance on CBS’s “The Late Late Show With James Corden.”
So what could be included in the report? Not everything in the document will be publicly available – although the report will be unclassified, it “may include a classified attachment,” writes the Committee on Intelligence. The committee requested detailed analysis of UAP data and intelligence, including UFO information collected by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
The committee also asked that the report describe the process of sharing information between agencies to help identify unfamiliar technologies and uncover patterns in UFO sightings that may imply hostile intent.
“I want us to have a process to analyze the data every time it comes in. To have a place where they are cataloged and constantly analyzed until we get some answers, ”Rubio said.
“Maybe he has a very simple answer. Or maybe not, ”Rubio said to Whitaker. “We’ll know when we get this report.”
