2004: "Unconventional Flying Objects: The Body of Technological Evidence"

ABSTRACTS

John F. Schuessler - "Unconventional Flying Objects: The Body of Technological Evidence."

It is no longer necessary to refer to UFOs as unidentified. We have amassed sufficient evidence to show they are "unconventional," rather that "unidentified." UFOs are not airplanes, rockets, planets, weather balloons, space debris, ball lightning, remnants of comets or meteorites, or constructs of the imagination. We know this because a thorough study of the evidence in thousands of UFO cases has eliminated all of these things as explanations for UFOs. What remains is a huge reservoir of Unconventional Flying Object reports that defy explanation. Unfortunately, the evidence has been ignored, misrepresented or covered-up for so long that most people accept this as normal and no longer question it. We do have the evidence and we will discuss it based on the criteria given in McCormick's Handbook of the Law of Evidence.

Stephen Bassett - "Deception, Denial and Disclosure."

For the past ten years a growing political movement has targeted the politics of UFOs/disclosure. All levels of the media have received extensive materials on the subject. Former members of the U.S. military, former astronauts and many other government employees have been speaking privately and publicly in unambiguous terms regarding the extraterrestrial presence and a government cover-up. Each day the UFO/ET cover-up continues and each new revelation of abuse of power by this or that government agency further erodes the fundamental trust the American people hold in their government - and benchmarks for trust in government are at all time lows. If you truly wish to unite the country and begin a new era of cooperation, you must engage an issue of transcendent importance. That issue is at hand.

Grant Cameron - "Seeking a Checkmate Move: A Search for Conclusive Technological Evidence."

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, your duty today will be to decide an important case. Your job will be to decide on the basis of all the evidence I will present if there is a case beyond a reasonable doubt that UFOs represent a technological phenomenon, and moreover, if it's someone else's advanced technology. Your job will not be an easy one. That is because evidence is treated differently in the UFO world that it is in the world at large. The standards are much higher.

Peter B. Davenport - "Using Multistatic Passive Radar for Real-time Detection of UFO's in the Near-Earth Environment."

The author proposes a system for the remote, real-time detection of UFO's in the near-Earth environment, using passive, multi-static, frequency-modulated (FM) radar. The system capitalizes on the use of multiple, time-synchronized radio receivers to capture high-frequency radio signals reflected from a target. The time-lapse between received signals, together with three-dimensional Doppler-shift analysis, permits calculation of target's location, velocity, acceleration, flight path, and other parameters, possibly to include target size estimation. Signal analysis of the reflected signal, combined with analysis of target characteristics, will permit discrimination between suspected UFO's, and targets of terrestrial origin, e.g. aircraft, satellites, space debris, meteor trails, upper atmospheric conditions, weather phenomena, migratory birds, the Moon, etc. One application proposed may allow detection of UFO's out to a range of at least 27,600 kilometers from the Earth's surface.

Deborah Lindemann C.H.T. - "Signatures of Extraordinary Technology in Abduction."

As I approach the twenty-year mark investigating UFO encounter cases, I continue to witness the extraordinary signature of abduction, written in the lives of hundreds of people I have worked with. The American Heritage Dictionary defines signature as, "A distinctive mark, characteristic, or sound indicating identity." This forensic blueprint shows up in a multitude of ways: physical trace evidence, unexplained technology, not to mention the profound emotional impact these encounters have upon individuals. Throughout the UFO encounter experience runs a common thread of anomalous experiences and evidence with unworldly implications. This common thread runs through all cultures, all ages of people and between people who have never met. I will present the tapestry of the alien signature in several categories, reflected in a number of important cases including the Stan Romanek case.

Budd Hopkins - UFO Abduction Cases: The Medical Evidence."

Among individuals reporting prior alien UFO abductions, three different kinds of physical aftereffects are often found within or upon their bodies:
1. The most commonly noted are surface lesions of two types: "scoop marks," shallow, oval depressions, usually found on an abductee's leg, and suggesting that layers of tissue have been systematically removed, and fine, straight-line cuts reminiscent of surgical incisions. Both types of lesions usually leaving lasting scars.
2. Radiological reports of small metallic objects - alleged implants - which occasionally appear in X-rays of abductees' skulls and are inaccessibly located.
3. A wide range of other unusual medical symptoms which occur immediately after an abduction experience and appear to have no acceptable medical causes. These anomalous symptoms include sudden, profuse bleeding from the bladder in males, the absence of a previously existing ovary in females, numerous "disappearing" pregnancies, and other difficult to explain medical conditions.

David Sereda - "Has NASA Made Contact With Extraterrestrial Intelligence?"

This is the deepest investigation and dialog ever made about some breakthrough footage what was filmed by NASA. This footage records high numbers of disc-shaped objects, ambiguously classified, and until now, unidentifiable as any known phenomenon. He shows proof of intelligent craft through the process of elimination of other plausible phenomena; fundamental principles of faster-than-light technology and corroborating evidence found on disc-shaped objects; links to the supposed spacecraft and an indentifiable star system.

Nick Redfern - "Flying Triangles' in British Airspace: Evidence of Advanced Technology."

In early 1993, a series of truly earth-shattering UFO encounters occurred in British airspace that went on to have a profound effect on high-ranking sources within both the Royal Air Force and the Ministry of Defense. More importantly, it was that single wave of encounters that ultimately convinced British military and defense personnel that the phenomenon was one that clearly demonstrated the presence of an advanced, high-performance technology. Some UFOs do indeed display evidence of advanced technology, not built by us and that the so-called Flying Triangle phenomenon is the latest and most significant example of that same advanced technology.

Ryan Wood - "Evidence for the Existence of TOP SECRET/MJ-12: A Forensic Examination of Leaked Classified Documents."

At the heart of the debate of Government complicity in the UFO cover-up at Roswell, and more broadly with highly credible UFO related activity, is the existence of a blue ribbon panel of military and scientific minds code-named Majestic 12 or MJ-12. For more than two decades there have been documents: some photocopies, some undeveloped film and some original papers that tell the detailed story of explicit involvement and extreme military and government secrecy toward UFOs. Not only are documents in the public domain, but living witnesses also corroborate the documents, the military procedures and the long-standing cover-up - which the vast majority of Americans believe.

Leslie Kean - "Combating Media Ridicule and Searching for Evidence on the 1965 Kecksburg Crash Case."

In May 2000, I published an in-depth story for the Sunday Boston Globe about the French COMETA report and the broader issue of UFOs and national security. My prior experience was as a widely published, print journalist and a producer and host for an investigative news program on KPFA Radio, a Pacifica station in Berkeley, CA. When I received an advance copy of the English translation of the COMETA report from a colleague in France, I recognized that the extraordinary conclusion reached by the distinguished authors was newsworthy, and that this report had potentially profound implications that needed to be addressed and made available to the public.

Paul Davids - "Profiles in UFO Courage."

The thesis of this highly visual presentation is the UFO disclosure has been like "time-release aspirin" - and that the media has been skillfully utilized be a relatively small group of courageous people, who at times risked ridicule and being discredited, as well as being targeted for onslaughts of debunking, in order to help the public assimilate the very controversial concept that "We Are Not Alone." My interest in the UFO field was propelled by a daylight flying saucer sighting in 1987 in close proximity, with my two children. It provided the motivation for my becoming executive producer and co-writer of the Showtime film ROSWELL, starring Kyle MacLachlan, Dwight Yoakam, and Martin Sheen. It also led to my conviction that excessive official secrecy on this issue is a negative and mistaken national policy.

John Greenewald, Jr. - "The U.S. Government's Present Day UFO Interest. The Black Vault Uncovers What the Government Doesn't Want You to See."

It has been over seven years now since I started what has now become the largest database in the world, outside of the U.S. Government itself. Many Internet users and television viewers worldwide have seen this site known as 'The Black Vault' grow beyond anyone's imagination. Archiving over 114,000 government documents, 20,000 historical photographs, a message forum with over 270,000 posts, and over 10,000 news articles, The Black Vault is by far one of the largest sites on the Internet.
