In a move to coordinate and monitor Unidentified Flying Objects in restricted air space, the Department of Defense has created a new department. The new group will monitor air space for flying objects that may be national security threats and flight safety risks.
Dealing With UFOs
Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Kicks said that the unit will be at the head of government efforts to "detect, identify and attribute objects of interests." In other words, they will be monitoring UFO data.
The Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group will take over where the Navy's UAp force left off and will report to senior military and intelligence officials.
According to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, sightings of 140 UFOs from 2004 prompted the unit's formation, which released a report in June detailing the numerous occurrences.
Some of the UFOs had very unusual flight patterns. The document also shows the problems with gathering data on UFOs which allows them to assess and identify them. One of the major issues is the ridicule pilots, and others face when they report the sightings.
The DOD believes there are many logical explanations for UFOs, and the new group will help them shed light on the issues, including finding standardizing reporting across all entities. As needed, the group will also work on recommendations for adjustments to laws, regulations, doctrine, training, organizations, and more.
