Pentagon Releases New Report On UFOs: The long-awaited Pentagon report on unexplained aerial phenomenon (UAP) for 2022 is now available. After a lengthy wait, the Pentagon’s Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released the unclassified “2022 Annual Report on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” on Thursday (Jan. 12).
The report was required under the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act and was produced by the newly constituted All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office and the National Intelligence Manager for Aviation at ODNI (AARO). The Federal Aviation Administration, the Department of Energy (DoE), the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Military Intelligence Offices, and NASA all provided input.

The report(opens in new tab) comprises 510 catalogued UAP reports in total, which were acquired from the agencies participating in the report and the various US military services. According to the study, the majority of these were acquired from U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force personnel who made reports on them through authorised channels. The declassified assessment comes to the conclusion that many reports “lack sufficiently precise data to permit attribution of UAP with high certainty,” even though UAP “remain to represent a concern to flight safety and offer a prospective adversary collection threat.”
Of the 510 total UAP reports, ODNI evaluated 366 that had been recently discovered since the inception of AARO. Six of these were determined to be airborne “clutter,” such as flying birds or plastic shopping bags. Of these, 26 were classified as unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), also known as drones, 163 were assigned to balloons or “balloon-like phenomena,” The ODNI report states that there are still 171 documented UAP sightings that are “uncharacterized and unattributed.” The paper also states that “several of these uncharacterized UAP appear to have displayed unexpected flight characteristics or performance capabilities, and require further analysis.”
The ODNI’s unclassified report does not draw any earth-shattering conclusions about the origins of the UAP (as unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, have recently been rebranded), but it does highlight a growing emphasis on airspace safety, which has been prompted in part by the recent proliferation of drones, some of which may be used by the United States’ enemies to gather intelligence.
The agency continues to “assess that this may result from a collection bias due to the number of active aircraft and sensors, combined with focused attention and guidance to report anomalies,” according to ODNI, which states in the report that “UAP events continue to occur in restricted or sensitive airspace, highlighting possible concerns for safety of flight or adversary collection activity.”

In other words, because there are logically more sensors checking the sky surrounding military buildings and training ranges, military aviators in controlled airspace may be reporting more UAP/UFOs in these regions.
The research also mentions how elements like weather, illumination, and atmospheric impacts can affect the observation of supposed UAP. In order to do this, the office “operates under the assumption that UAP reports are obtained from the observer’s reliable recollection of the event and/or sensors that generally operate correctly and capture enough real data to allow early assessments.”
However, the report makes note of the possibility that some of the documented UAP incidences described in the research were brought on by operator or equipment mistake or issues with the sensors employed to detect UAP in these incidents.

Following the publication of the ODNI report, Ryan Graves, a former Navy F/A-18 pilot and chair of the Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena Integration & Outreach Committee (UAPIOC), said in a statement: “It is clear that there is an urgent and critical need to improve aerospace safety by dedicating scientific research into UAP.” To confront this threat to national security, Graves continued, “we must put an end to reckless speculation, eliminate stigma, and fund science.”
The report’s main goal, which is to increase flight safety in both civilian and military airspace, acknowledges that “there have been no documented collisions between U.S. aircraft and UAP” up to this point. Contrary to several claims made in recent years, there haven’t been any UAP encounters that “proven to contribute directly to unfavourable health-related impacts to the observer(s)” (opens in new tab).
