This appears to be a something whose primary purpose is actually disclosure. Where are the thousands of engineers and scientiests here? All those are well out of sight some place else and it is my opinion that they have been at it since the fifties.
The intent may well be to introduce early work to the public as if recent to mislead potential adversaries.
As I have posted, direct discoveries circa 1955 that i have confirmed easily enough drives obvious decisions not unlike the Manhatten Project. All that is actually confirmed by massive empirical evidence all protected with disinformation.
Inside the Pentagon's Secret UFO Program
As I sit in a small cafe in the shadow of the ancient Roman gates in Trier, Germany, talking to a person whose credibility seems beyond reproach, but who will only agree to talk to me if provide absolute assurances of anonymity, I can’t help but feel like I’m trapped in a Dan Brown novel. The Da Vinci Code, however, never dealt with unidentified flying objects.
“In the living room of the former NIDS double wide observation trailer/staff quarters. A 3D object appeared in mid-air in front of him and changed shape like a changing topological figure. It went from pretzel-shaped to Möbius strip shaped. It was 3D and multi-colored. Then it disappeared.”

A Timeline of UFO Programs
In an exchange of emails between Gough, the Pentagon spokesperson, and Swedish research Roger Glassal, which were provided and published by research analyst Keith Basterfield, Gough said AAWSAP commenced in the fiscal year (FY) 2008 with a designated $10 million dollars of funding. Since the bid solicitation wasn’t issued until August 2008, we now know that Gough was mistaken, and the program actually began in FY2009, which began October 1, 2008.
“After an OSD/DIA review in late 2009, it was determined the reports were of limited value to DIA and there was a recommendation that upon completion of the contract the project could be transited to an agency or component better suited to oversee it.
Funding for the program at the DIA ended in 2012 and DoD elected not to continue the program after the work contracted under the FY2010 NDAA was completed.”
They don’t know what it is, I don’t know what it is … We’re trying to learn more about it. The Air Force is trying to learn more about it.”
However, Gough has not responded to repeated follow-up requests from Popular Mechanics.
He says he was unaware of the UFO background of AAWSAP, but very familiar with BAASS’s UFO interest.
