DARPA’s UFO Research?

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
February 11, 2020

G.B. spotted this very intriguing article and analysis by John Greenewald, Jr., at Blackvault.com.  If you don’t know who Mr. Greenewald is, he is one of the newer generation of UFO researchers who prefers to focus on the nuts and bolts of hard data and documents, and not the latest stories and fantasias of Blue Chickens and similar cults. So when Mr. Greenewald finds something, I tend to sit up and take notice.

In this case, there’s a couple of paragraphs in this article that quickly caught my attention; see if you spotted them too:


This first paragraph that caught my eye was this:

With these assertions, The Black Vault set out to find exactly where that money may be coming from that allows the program and the effort to continue. In order to do that, we must first go after what was publicly posted for the AAWSA Program. That can be found archived from a 2008 “Federal Business Opportunities” posting which was saved in the “Wayback Machine.” This was the original posting that was seen by BAASS in 2008, which they submitted a bid for. No other corporations offered a bid.

This solicitation notice stated the objective of the AAWSA program:

“One aspect of the future threat environment involves advanced aerospace weapon system applications.  The objective of this program is to understand the physics and engineering of these applications as they apply to the foreign threat out to the far term, i.e., from now through the year 2050. Primary focus is on breakthrough technologies and applications that create discontinuities in currently evolving technology trends. The focus is not on extrapolations of current aerospace technology. The proposal shall describe a technical approach which discusses how the breakthrough technologies and applications listed below would be studied and include proposed key personnel that have experience in those areas. 3. REQUIREMENTS: a) The contractor shall complete advanced aerospace weapon system technical studies in the following areas:   1. lift; 2. propulsion ; 3. control; 4. power generation; 5. spatial/temporal translation; 6. materials; 7. configuration, structure; 8. signature reduction (optical, infrared, radiofrequency, acoustic); 9. human interface; 10. human effects; 11. armament (RF and DEW); 12. other peripheral areas in support of (1-11); b) It is expected that numerous experts with extensive experience (minimum of 10 years) in breakthrough aerospace research and development will be required to meet the demands of the above program.” (Boldface emphasis added)

Before pressing on, stop and consider that very strange list; the requirement to consider “foreign” threats “out to the far term” of thirty years, or that these extrapolations are not to be based on extrapolations of “current aerospace technology,” in other words, the contractor is being required to think outside the box of the conventional, Kammlerstab style. Then follows a rather conventional list, which, by the context, we’re being asked to do extrapolations that do not lie in “current aerospace technology” in the areas of “1. lift; 2. propulsion; 3. control; 4. power generation; … 6. materials; 7. configuration, structure’ signature reduction (optical, infrared, radiofrequency, acoustic” and so on, and squatting in the middle of this, “spatial/temporal translation.Obviously, within the context of the mundane, any system of propulsion, from horses to rockets, are capable of spatial-temporal translation, but in the context of non-conventional extrapolation, other much more exotic possibilities are implicated. For example, in the past few years I’ve blogged occasionally about this or that newest application of entanglement, and the sizes of what are being entangled seem to be gradually increasing from the quantum level to more macro-scaled entanglements. Or alternatively, I’ve also blogged ocasionally about experiments that actually remove micro-events from the timeline. Throw into this mix all the careful research being done in the alternative research field about exotic technologies – from Nazi Bells to extraordinarily odd alleged statements of Thomas Townsend Brown or Ben Rich, and there is a clear context in the public literature for “exotic” interpretations of this list.

Then there’s the term “foreign”; what does this mean? A synonym of “foreign” is, of course, the word “alien” which is commonly associated in this context with non-terrestrial intelligent life. But foreign could also mean something “unknown” to us. Viewed this way, “us” becomes “who”? Unknown to American technology and science, but still terrestrial? Or unknown to us, meaning humans? In other words, the language here is carefully chosen, and is capable of a very wide interpretation.

But there’s another gem that Mr. Greenewald discovered:

After a long hunt, the discovery of Program Element (PE) 0603286E was made, and one of the projects within, could be exactly the unique needle in that proverbial stack of needles that was being sought after.

A PE is ultimately a portfolio of programs or in some instances a single program that receives funding within a budget.  PE 0603286E was first discovered in the 2008 DARPA Fact File published in June of 2008 (coincidentally, the same year the DIA solicited the private sector for bids for the AAWSA Program).

PE 0603286E contained numerous sub-projects that receive funding out of their more than $100 – $180 million dollar yearly budget. Tactically Exploited Reconnaissance Node; Hypersonic Air-breathing Weapon Concept; Tactical Boost Glide; Aerial Reconfigurable Embedded System; are just some of the programs that receive money through this specific PE.

However, one sub-program within PE 0603286E is the Advanced Aerospace System Concepts line item, also reference as part of a “Project AIR-01.” The 2008 fact file says that:

“Studies conducted under the Advanced Aerospace System Concepts program will examine and evaluate emerging aerospace technologies and system concepts for applicability to military use, as well as the degree and scope of potential impact/improvements to military operations, mission utility, and warfighter capability. The program also analyzes emerging aerospace threats and possible methods and technologies to counter them.”  (Bold-italics emphasis added)

What’s intriguing to contemplate here is how neatly this program dovetails with the Trump Administration’s creation of a “Space Force,” which suggests that the actualities behind these paragraphs may be further along than meets the eye. And again, there’s something highly suggestive in the middle of this, something called “Aerial reconfigurable Embedded Systems.” Again, if we adopt the “exotic” context of extrapolation outside of current systems, this odd item suggests that one might be looking at a platform that is able to physically reconfigure itself while in operation. Again, these already exist and have for a few decades, with aircraft able to fold their wings for hypersonic flight. But by the same token, this phrase would adequately describe the reported behavior of some UFOs which appear to change their physical configuration in operation.

And there’s a final context in which to view Mr. Greenewald’s discoveries.  Recall that a few years ago DARPA set the objective that the USA become “warp capable” in a century, and that NASA has established a proof of concept program under the direction of Dr. Harold “Sonny” White, who reworked Alcubierre’s equations for warp.

Put it all together and one gets an intriguing picture, one that a mere twenty years ago would never have achieved this degree of public disclosure or discussion. And that should give one pause, for it may mean that the secret space program is beginning to go public, and that for a very important reason: the technologies and concepts on which they are based simply can no longer be hidden

The New Space Force Command’s Star Trek LOGO

This “fun” story also topped people’s list this week, and so many sent it, that in thanking the first one who sent it, B.H., I’m thanking all of you. So with that said, right down to business.

President Trump’s new Space Force has released pictures of its new logo, and already the internet is abuzz with the fact that it looks more-than-suspiciously familiar:

Is Trump’s Space Force Logo a Copycat of Starfleet’s From ‘Star Trek’? (Sure Looks Like It)

Before I get started with my high octane speculation of the day, first a little “confession,” or as the current parlance has it, a little “disclosure.” I am a half-closeted Trekkie.

Yes, I know. That may come a a shock, but I say half-closeted because my reaction to the whole Star Trek concept, and in particular the original series and “Next Generation” is ambivalent and lukewarm. The reason? Well, in short, lack of a storyline, lack of any clear or consistent cosmology or vision; but it’s more than that. Star Trek – in contrast to Babylon Five – was a mess. Its vision of the human future was completely Godless and wholly secular and sterile; the past – secular, religious, or otherwise – if mentioned at all, was always mentioned in some sort of vaguely negative way. Yet, at the same time, it could not invent or create anything artistic: “Next Generation” performed more Mozart than anything “contemporary”.  And it was almost puerile in its characterizations: only the “bad guys” – the Romulans, Klingons, &c. – had any semblance of tradition, culture, religion, or philosophy. It was so bad that even Spock in the original series, a kind of pointed-eared Wittgenstein-in-Space with his own memorized Tractatus Logico-Trekkius, had to be toned down a bit in and given some sort of Taoist-Stoic tradition to make him palatable.  The “good guys” had ugly sterile quasi-Swedish-modern furniture, wore spartanly ugly clothes, and had an outlook on life and the cosmos wholly friendly to Karl Marx or Albert Pike. It was “Scottish Rite Communists” in space(hence the Mozart; no Beethoven, no Bach, no Palestrina; just Mozart). Contrast Star Trek’s utopian Federation with Babylon Five: in the latter there is still money, still conflict, and no attempt is made to suppress anyone’s past, traditions, philosophies, or culture, and characterize them, as Pickard once did in season one of The Next Generation, as an outgrown infancy.

And if you think I’m alone in my assessment, there’s this from the article:

The logo is probably where the resemblance between Space Force and Starfleet ends, unless we’ve completely misjudged Trump that is. It’s unlikely Trump actually is trying to create a post-scarcity, post-money utopia founded on principles of peaceful coexistence, shared abundance, secularism, science, and equality like the one depicted in the TV shows and films set in the “Star Trek” universe.

This short evaluation says it better than anything I could say: Star Trek was, in its first and second incarnations, a utopia, and in the final analysis, an unworkable one. It was the New England Unitarian Yankees-in-Space. It was a pretense to extend the American  empire into space itself. And it’s that which gives me pause: think of all the times that the ‘prime directive’ of non-interference in the lives or civilizations of others is violated in the series.

But is that the only message being sent by Mr. Trump’s space force logo? Don’t get me wrong here, I do think the message being sent with the logo is in part a cultural one. But is it the only one?

I doubt it, and herewith my speculation of the day. The other part of the Star Trek universe is even more terrifying than the cultural one, and in typical Star Trek fashion, is made to appear a bit “cute.” That other part is the technological part: warp drives, matter-anti-matter bombs, transporters or teleporters, “phasers”, force fields or “shields”, disruptors… you get the picture. But in a context of hidden systems of finance, missing trillions, and a whole hidden black projects world complete with its own infrastructure and, I suspect, “culture”, one that moreover has been in continuous existence at least since the end of World War Two if not longer, then there’s another message being sent, one epitomized, perhaps, in the alleged end-of-life utterances of Lockheed-Martin’s skunkworks director Ben Rich: “We found an error in the equations,” and “now we can take ET home.”

He might just have well have said “We found an error in the equations” and “now we can bring the war to ET.”

See you on the flip side…
