Several conferences have been held with members of a prominent research organization to determine whether or not there is enough information available on the unidentified flying objects to warrant a thorough scientific investigation. These people have inspected the files, discussed the problem, and it is their opinion that there are enough reports that cannot be explained by known objects or phenomena to warrant a detailed investigation.
Several other prominents engineers and scientists have been contacted and their opinions are much the same as those stated above.
Negotiations are underway to obtain the services of consultants in the field of physics, nuclear physics, astronomy, psychology etc., to assist in the analysis of the reports. In this respect, it is hoped that the project can receive the full cooperation of all AF commands in promptly reporting all sightings of unidentified aerial objects, so that as many authentic reports as possible will be available for study by statistical analysis.
