Pentagon creates office to study UFOs

The US Department of Defense has created a department called AARO, whose task will be to study Unidentified Flying Objects. This step was a continuation of a number of measures taken by the US government in this direction over the past few months.

Organization created to study UFOs

On July 20, the US Department of Defense announced the creation of a special department that will track UFOs in the air and water. More precisely, all incomprehensible objects are now called unidentified aerial phenomena or UAPs.

The new organization was named the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office or AARO. Organizationally, it is part of the Ministry of Defense and reports to the Deputy Minister of Defense for Intelligence and Security. Sean Kirkpatrick, former chief scientist of the Rocket and Space Intelligence Center, has been appointed head of this organization.

The main task of AARO is to coordinate efforts between the Department of Defense and the US Federal Government on the study of UFOs. Its tasks are defined as “detection, identification and marking of objects showing interest in or near military facilities, areas of military operations and exercises, special-purpose airspace and other zones”.

In a separate statement, it is noted that AARO is now the coordinating center for all measures related to the UAPs, and has the right to make official statements on them on behalf of the Ministry. In other words, it is to this organization that you need to turn in case of UFO sightings, the same ones that should protect Americans from aliens.

USA shows interest in UAPs

It is worth noting that the creation of AARO is only the latest step among those that the US government has carried out in the field of UFO research over the past year. Some time ago, the US military recognized the existence of the UAPs. In June, NASA created a commission to study them. In addition, the US government held several meetings on these objects.

It is also interesting that among the UAPs, in addition to those that can be found in space and in the air, there are also underwater anomalies and such phenomena that pass from one environment to another. 

Daniel Evans, NASA Assistant Deputy Administrator for Research, said that one of the main tasks that these steps should solve is to overcome the stigma that exists on the topic of UAPs in different circles. On the one hand, researchers need to gain access to more classified documents. On the other hand, it is more open to talk about this topic.
