The new Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group will specifically look at reports of Unexplained Aerial Phenomena (UAP) near U.S.military facilities.UAP is the military term to describe what is known as UFOs or Unexplained Flying Objects.

“Incursions by any airborne object into our SUA (Special Use Airspace) pose safety of flight and operations security concerns, and may pose national security challenges,” said a Pentagon press release using the term that includes restricted military airspace, military operations areas, firing ranges and places restricted for national security and other uses.

Department of Defense shows part of an unclassified video taken by Navy pilots that have circulated for years showing interactions with “unidentified aerial phenomena”.The new group will synchronize the Pentagon’s efforts with other federal agencies “to detect, identify and attribute objects of interest in Special Use Airspace (SUA), and to assess and mitigate any associated threats to safety of flight and national security.”

MORE: Upcoming UFO report to Congress creating lots of buzz It will be overseen by the under secretary of defense for intelligence, who will head an executive council including the director of the Joint Staff and senior officials from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

Last June, the U.S.

intelligence community released a report requested by Congress that provided the first unclassified assessment of Unexplained Aerial Phenomena.

The UAP report also identified the need to make improvements in the Pentagon’s processes, policies, technologies and training to improve its ability to understand UAP..
