Not everyone took a team of UFO researchers seriously when it claimed to have material from a crashed extra-terrestrial spacecraft that did not bear any relation to alloys or metals currently known.
However, it appears that the US military shows interest with the claim.
To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science (TTSA) made an announcement on a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command.
Initially, the partnership will see TTSA help develop enhance capabilities for Army ground vehicles.
TTSA says the project will use their recent innovations, which, together, will have the potential to improve the survivability and effectiveness of multiple Army systems. These innovations include material science, quantum physics, space-time metric engineering, active camouflage, and beamed energy propulsion.
Before the latest development, TTSA published a set of photos showing several flat metallic-looking objects, which they said were debris from a UFO crash.
Dr. Joseph Cannon of US Army Futures Command said their partnership with To The Stars serves as a non-traditional, new source for transformational technologies and novel materials to enhance their military ground system capabilities.
He explained that they look forward to this partnership and the potential technical innovations forthcoming at the Army’s Ground Vehicle Systems Centre.
Steve Justine, former head of Advanced Systems at Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works, now leads TTSA’s Technology and Aerospace team. Skunk Works is the centre of advanced and experimental aviation research that produced many cutting-edge warplanes, including the F117 Stealth Fighter.
Justine has spoken out about the exotic materials that are currently in their possession. He said the composition and structure of these materials weren’t from any known existing commercial or military application.
According to Justine, they have contracted laboratories to analyse multiple material samples and have plans to further expand the scope of this study.
Talking on the new collaboration with the US military, he said that it brings additional, critically important expertise that’s important to advance the state-of-the-art in both their near and long-term technology areas of study.
Justine said the Army has specific military performance interest in the research, but much of the work is expected to have double-use application in support of TTSA’s path to commercialisation and public benefit mission.
The US Navy recently confirmed that the UFO captured on on-board cameras of Navy fighter jets were real. The confirmation is the most reliable evidence yet that at least some UFOs are real and that the US military knows about them.
