Air Force records show that the C.I.A. was notified several times of these [UFO] penetrations over nuclear missile and bomber bases

     The Defense Department message bears the classification CONFIDENTIAL. “Subject: Suspicious Unknown Air Activity.” Dated Nov. 11, 1975, it reads:
By Patrick Huyghe
The New York

“Since 28 Oct 75 numerous reports of suspicious objects have been received at the NORAD COC [North American Air Defense Combat Operations Center]. Reliable military personnel at Loring AFB [Air Force Base], Maine, Wurtsmith AFB, Michigan, Malmstrom AFB, [Montana], Minot AFB, [North Dakota], and Canadian Forces Station, Falconbridge, Ontario, Canada, have visually sighted suspicious objects.


Numerous daily updates kept the Joint Chiefs of Staff informed of these incursions by U.F.O.’s in the fall of 1975. Representatives of the Defense Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency as well as a handful of other Government desks received copies of the National Military Command Center’s reports on the incidents. One report said that an unidentified object “demonstrated a clear intent in the weapons storage area.” …

US Military Advantage in Cyberspace is Challenged

     The superiority of the US military in cyberspace, which once could be taken for granted, is gradually eroding, says an Army Field Manual published this week.
By Steven Aftergood
Secrecy News

In the past decade, “U.S. forces dominated cyberspace and the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) in Afghanistan and Iraq against enemies and adversaries lacking the technical capabilities to challenge our superiority in cyberspace.”

“However, regional peers have since demonstrated impressive capabilities in a hybrid operational environment that threaten the Army’s dominance in cyberspace and the EMS,” according to the new Field Manual.

The Gulf Breeze Six, UFOs, The NSA, Military Intelligence and The Mission To Save The World

Revisiting the Gulf Breeze Six

GIs' Mysterious Appearance Sparks Rumors About UFOs (Header)- The Morning News Tribune 7-19-1990

     I recently made a decision to add inquiring about the Gulf Breeze Six to my ongoing FOIA requests. I initially emailed James Carrion to get his input on most effectively composing the requests. In his response, James mentioned he would take a look around for some material he might have on the case and send it along in the event I’d find it useful. He soon emailed copies of dozens of relevant newspaper clippings, messages posted on listservs, interviews, and similar documents I very much appreciate and find of historic value. With James’ permission I am sharing a 117-page pdf file he provided. In the post below I’ll explore the case, discuss some of the many interesting points in the material James offered, and describe the resulting FOIA requests filed.

The Gulf Breeze Six

“Disembodied Voice: I’m the Virgin Mary, how many personnel are currently occupying your NSA listening station in Germany?”

– Kandinsky, commenting on Gulf Breeze Six case, Above Top Secret

A long time ago in a UFO community far, far away, some interesting things actually happened. It might be hard for some to imagine, but events went down in ufology other than self-described disclosure activists frantically building urgency around what chronically amounts to nothing and a podcaster persistently trying to extract cash from email lists like third world con men hacking Yahoo.

The 1980’s gave ufology a series of eyebrow-raising evolving into jaw-dropping events, compliments of the intelligence community, that included Airman Simone Mendez and her run in with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) and FBI; Paul Bennewitz and Linda Moulton Howe targeted for deception by OSI Special Agent Richard Doty; and in 1989, writer and researcher Bill Moore took the opportunity as keynote speaker at the annual MUFON symposium to declare he’d been collaborating with Doty and other members of the IC to distribute disinformation.

While that was happening, the Florida community of Gulf Breeze gained global attention due to reported dramatic UFO sightings and, in particular, the controversial case of Ed Walters. As a result, Gulf Breeze was the site of the 1990 annual MUFON symposium, at which time – just a year since Moore cannonballed into the last gig – a crew of a half dozen AWOL intelligence analysts partial to using a Ouija board arrived at the home of a local psychic as the conference came to a close down the street. The group became known as the Gulf Breeze Six.

Military Blimp Breaks Free; F-16’s Scrambled

Military Blimp Breaks Free; F-16's Scrambled

By Meghan Keneally
ABC News

      A military blimp has gotten loose in Maryland and was floating towards Pennsylvania, authorities said. Fighter jets were scrambled in the wake of the incident to escort the unmanned vessel, according to officials.

A fire department in Maryland first reported that the Aberdeen Blimp became untethered just before noon today. It has passed Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and was flying towards the northeast at 15,000 feet, officials said.

“Emergency personnel are tracking the aerostat which is still aloft in [sic] moving toward Pennsylvania,” according to the Aberdeen Proving Ground, the U.S. Army facility.

The full name of the blimp — known as an aerostat — is a Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS) and it is used to detect cruise missiles around Washington DC.

UFO Event at Yuma Test Station Remains a Mystery

Unconventional Craft Sighted - May 1952

By Mark Schauer


From its inception as Yuma Test Station in 1951, U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground has been a natural desert laboratory for testing equipment destined for use by soldiers.

It is a place where the scientific method trumps superstition and wild speculation, where unexplained phenomena are methodically identified and fixed. Yet, at least once in the proving ground’s distant past, personnel viewed something in the sky that was never definitively explained.

It was a bit after 3 p.m. Thursday, April 17, 1952, and 13 soldiers were in the midst of a field familiarization hike three miles south of Yuma Test Station, near what today is a vehicle mud course. We can’t say with certainty what the temperature was that afternoon — YPG’s weather records only go back to 1956 — but presumably it was warm enough for the men to enjoy resting beneath a shade tree in between a canal bank and the Colorado River. Suddenly, they saw almost directly overhead a flat-white circular object heading toward the mountain-lined southeastern horizon, emitting an intermittent vapor trail. About a quarter inch wide when judged at arm’s length from the ground, the object disappeared within seven seconds. . . .

Army High-Tech Blimp To Spy On Americans? | VIDEO

High-Tech Blimp To Spy On Americans?

     Floating over Maryland’s Baltimore suburbs is the newest system launched by the Army to protect the Eastern Seaboard. While officials say the new security system won’t be keeping an eye on residents below, many are skeptical, reports CBS News correspondent Chip Reid.

At the U.S. Army’s Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, soldiers practiced the complicated choreography of launching an unmanned blimp nearly as long as a football field. . . .

. . . “Even without the video surveillance, these blimps are designed to track and surveil surface moving targets, that is people, it’s cars, it’s individuals going about their daily lives,” McCall said.

The Army insists the blimp will never be used to spy on Americans, but following revelations about spying by the NSA, some people are nervous about what they believe could one day become the government’s eye in the sky. . . .

UFO Sightings To Go Up in Maryland; New Aerostat Defense System Deployed | VIDEO

By defense-update.com

     The U.S. Army lofted today the first JLENS – Joint Land Attack Elevated netted Sensor aerostat system at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. This large aerostat blimp is equipped with a radar system optimzed to detect low-level targets, such as cruise missiles and drones. It will cover a wide airspace from Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania up to New York and New Jersey.

Similar aerostat-based radars are already operational in India and Israel; Singapore is also planning to deploy such system next year. Deployment in the Continental US (CONUS) followed due to the US military concern about the risk of rough states or terrorist groups potential to attacks the US capital using cruise missiles launched from cargo ships moving deep in the Atlantic Ocean. Such missiles often fly too low to be detected by conventional radar. Airborne radars such as AWACS or Hawkeye aircraft can detect such threats but they are not airborne 24/7, due to the high operating cost of such airborne assets.

The 74 meter helium filled aerostat (243 foot) carries an air-surveillance radar that provides precise location data of airborne targets, such as cruise missiles, aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, and large-caliber rockets, as well as maritime surface moving targets. The JLENS system, also referred to as ‘orbit’ consists of two unmanned aerostats with radar systems.

The test is part of a three-year operational evaluation conducted by the North-American Aerospace Defense (NORAD) Command beginning in 2015. The second aerostat of the Aberdeen orbit is scheduled to go aloft in early 2015. Another JLENS system is in strategic reserve, ready to be deployed anywhere in the world at the request of combatant commanders, should they require comprehensive cruise missile defense capability. . . .
