A PENTAGON UFO report revealed a mystery aircraft “clustered around the United States military bases and testing grounds.”
The long-awaited report — titled The Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena — was released Friday afternoon from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
According to the UFO report, which was tipped to reveal the “truth about aliens” and US military sightings, some potential patterns did emerge.
“Although there was wide variability in the reports and the dataset is currently too limited to allow for detailed trend or pattern analysis, there was some clustering of UAP (unidentified aerial phenomena) observations regarding shape, size, and, particularly, propulsion,” the report states.
“UAP sightings also tended to cluster around U.S. training and testing grounds, but we assess that this may result from a collection bias as a result of focused attention, greater numbers of latest-generation sensors operating in those areas, unit expectations, and guidance to report anomalies.”
“In 18 incidents, described in 21 reports, observers reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics,” the report continues.
“Some UAP appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernable means of propulsion.”
And in only a select number of cases, the report said “military aircraft systems processed radio frequency (RF) energy associated with UAP sightings.”
Additionally, the Defense Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF) holds a small amount of data that shows “UAP demonstrating acceleration or a degree of signature management.”
In order to learn the nature and validity of the findings, more research is needed.
“We are conducting further analysis to determine if breakthrough technologies were demonstrated,” the preliminary assessment states.
The report, released on the website of the Office of the Director for National Intelligence, examined 144 reports of encounters with what the government deemed “unidentified aerial phenomenon.”
Investigators also found no evidence to suggest the sightings represented either extraterrestrial life or a major technological advancement by a foreign foe, such as China or Russia.
“Of the 144 reports we are dealing with here, we have no clear indications that there is any non-terrestrial explanation for them — but we will go wherever the data takes us,” a senior US official said.
“We don’t have any clear indications that any of these unidentified aerial phenomena are part of a foreign [intelligence] collection program, and we don’t have any clear data that is indicative of a major technological advancement by a potential adversary“We continue to put a lot of effort and energy into tracking those types of developments, and we watch that very carefully. Nothing in this data set clearly points us in that direction,” the official continued.
The newly released report said the unexplained aerial sightings could be secret aircraft from China or Russia — or a “non-government” terror group.
Eleven of the cases involved a “near miss” with US personnel, investigators said.
In recent years, the government has adopted UAP as its preferred term for what are otherwise known as “unidentified flying objects,” or UFOs, which have long associated with the notion of alien spacecraft.
Each also appeared to lack any means of propulsion or acceleration and exhibited speeds beyond what the United States believes foreign adversaries are capable of.
The report was ordered by Congress as part of broader intelligence legislation signed by former President Donald Trump in December.
Dave Partridge of UAP Media UK said: “The U.S. Government has recognized that the characteristics displayed by Unidentified Aerial Phenomena require an enhancement of data collection assets in order to understand and identify any potential threat to their national sovereignty.
“We hope that with the release of this report from the United States ODNI, the higher ranks of the UK Armed Forces will be inclined to provide a similar evaluation to HM Government.”
