US Government Pass A Bill To Allow New Task Force To Reverse Engineer UFO Technology

The Department of Defense (DoD) have announced that US Congress have outlined new laws designed to help the newly formed Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group (AOIMSG) to rapidly respond to UFO sightings and recommends a process is put into place for reverse engineering recovered technology.

The new bill is part of an annual report called the Defense Authorization Bill, and this year part of it focuses on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs), or simply UFOs as the general public call them.

The bill builds on the role of the AOIMSG, the US government's new UFO task force that the Pentagon announced two weeks ago. The new law will give the task force the power to rapidly respond in order to conduct field investigations and analyse data relating to UFO sightings, as well as recover material from crash sites, and potentially aid and fund the reverse engineering of advanced technology.

Of course, no one is saying for certain that this advanced technology is of extraterrestrial origin, although that's not been specifically ruled out. Other more down-to-Earth explanations include unknown military technology from China or Russia encroaching in Special Use Airspace (SUA) or restricted airspace.

However, the bill does highlight the need to help scientists and engineers understand UAPs that appear to be beyond the "known state of the art in science or technology." The bill says the information could be used in requests for funding for reverse engineering of technology to "replicate any such advanced characteristics and performance."

Ruben Gallego, a sponsor of the legislation, said in a statement, "protecting our national security interests means knowing who and what are flying in US airspace, right now, our system of tracking and identifying UAPs is scattered throughout the Department of Defense and other departments and agencies of the federal government."

Until recently, UFO reports in the US have been dealt with by various government departments, but November's news of the formation of the AOIMSG revealed that the Pentagon wanted to synchronise efforts across US government departments to detect, identify and attribute objects of interest and to assess any possible threat to safety of flight and national security.

This week's bill also promotes transparency between departments by requiring the task force's findings to be delivered to Congress in annual reports and regular briefings.

This year also saw the Pentagon release a highly-anticipated report on UFOs. Released to the public at the end of June, the report examined 144 UAP incidents from the past two decades, but despite all this, the report is only nine pages long making it a very broad overview with no conclusion as to the cause of these unidentified objects.

June's report makes it clear that UAPs "pose a safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to US national security." This potential national security threat is mainly due to the fact that most reports of UAPs seem to represent "physical objects," as the majority of the reports saw the object register across multiple sensors, rather than just visual observations.

The truth is, unidentified aerial phenomena are just that, unidentified. The report didn't offer any conclusive explanations or even attempt to debunk any specific incidents. This is perhaps due to the claim, "the limited amount of high-quality reporting on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) hampers our ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAP."
