Pentagon Launches UFO Reporting Form: How to Report Anomalous Phenomena to the Government
Discover the latest development in UFO investigations as the Pentagon introduces a secure online form to report unidentified aerial phenomena. Learn how to submit your knowledge, and stay updated on the evolving All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office's efforts. Uncover the truth about government involvement in UFO programs.
In a significant development in the realm of UFO investigations, the Department of Defense has introduced a new online tool to report government activity related to unidentified anomalous phenomena, commonly referred to as UFOs. This initiative is the latest addition to the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office's website, which was unveiled in August following the establishment of the office under last year's defense authorization act.
Submitting UFO Reports to the Government
Now, individuals who claim to have "firsthand knowledge of a U.S. Government program/activity related to UAP" have the opportunity to submit their information to the government through a secure online form. While the current usage of this form is restricted to current or former U.S. government employees, service members, and contractors, the director of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, Sean Kirkpatrick, has expressed the office's intent to explore methods for the public to report UFO sightings in the forthcoming third phase of the secure reporting mechanism.
Sean Kirkpatrick stated that his office has been assigned the task of gathering information on UFO incidents dating back to 1945, and this data will contribute to a congressionally mandated report due in June. This report aims to support investigations into alleged U.S. government programs related to unidentified aerial phenomena.
What the Secure Reporting Form Covers
Kirkpatrick encourages current or former U.S. government employees, whether military or civilian, as well as contractors, to come forward using this new secure reporting mechanism. The information submitted will be treated as personal and confidential and will be shared with his staff only for the purpose of conducting interviews. It's essential to note that sensitive or classified information should not be included in the form; it serves as an initial point of contact with the office.
The form provides guidance on submitting reports, collecting contact information, and assessing the submitter's affiliation with the U.S. government. It also determines whether the individual possesses "direct knowledge" of a government UAP program or activity.
Distinction from Established Reporting Measures
This new form is distinct from established reporting measures, such as those for sightings by military pilots or the Federal Aviation Administration's process for civilian pilots. The All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office's role is to provide a platform for whistleblowers and individuals who wish to come forward and present their cases for the record. Operational reporting, on the other hand, involves pilot reports of unidentified phenomena within their airspace and follows different channels.
The Office's Evolving Website
Kirkpatrick emphasizes that the office's website is a dynamic platform that will continue to evolve as their work progresses. They are preparing to release a significant amount of new material, including declassified historical documents and operational videos in the coming days and weeks.
Recent Testimony and Pentagon Response
This latest initiative by the Pentagon comes after David Grusch, a former U.S. intelligence official, testified to the House Oversight Committee about a "multidecade" program within the Pentagon to collect and reassemble damaged UAPs. Grusch also mentioned individuals who had retrieved "nonhuman biologics" from UAP crash sites. Notably, he prefers the term "nonhuman" over alien or extraterrestrial.
In response to Grusch's claims, a Pentagon spokesperson stated that there is no verifiable information to substantiate claims of possession or reverse-engineering of extraterrestrial materials by the Defense Department.
