Welcome to the page about UAPs in the media. Here you can find recent videos from national and international media on the subject of UAP. In the United States, the Senate takes the issue very seriously, with a commitment to the government to set up an organization to collect and analyze reports on sightings from all government agencies and to report on them annually. The UAP Coalition Netherlands requests the Dutch government to also realize an official form and reporting centre, where UAP observations, reported by professionals from the civil aviation, police or armed forces, are collected and investigated.
On May 17, 2021, the American program '60 Minutes' paid extensive attention to UAP. In it, whistleblowers from the US government, who were involved with UAP, talk about their investigation and the results. Various US Navy pilots talk about their observations, visually and with photos, radar and infrared cameras. The footage shows very fast and abrupt moving objects, with no discernible propulsion, in the airspace and in the sea, which cannot be explained with our current technology. The military personnel involved spoke openly about this. Senators who want more research also have their say.
On May 20, 2021, former President Obama stated on American television that UAP's sightings are real and cannot be explained.
On June 25, 2021, the US Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) published an important report on UAPs, at the request of the US Senate. From a large number of observations it was concluded that this cannot be explained with the current state of scientific knowledge and that there is a danger to aviation and perhaps even to the national security of the United States. On June 25, 2021, broadcaster WNL explains the background to the origin of the American report on UAP.
On May 17, 2022, the Subcommittee on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena of the United States House of Representatives will hold its first public hearing. The hearing and the preliminary results are briefly discussed in the American media.
On January 12, 2023, the second report of ODNI will be published, which will be discussed on US television on January 14, 2023. The report says the US government has received and analyzed more than 350 new sightings since March 2021, half of which remain unexplained to date. The Senate is asking for follow-up investigations and has instructed the Director of National Intelligence to conduct an analysis of all observations since 1947, to provide better legal protection for government whistleblowers and to promote the fight against misinformation.
On April 19, 2023, the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities will hold a hearing to receive testimony on the mission, activities, oversight, and budget of AARO (All Domain Anomaly Resolution Office)
On May 31, 2023, NASA held a public meeting. NASA commissioned a research team to investigate Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAPs) from a scientific perspective.
This public meeting was designed to hold final discussions before the independent study team publishes a report in summer 2023.
The report informs about the possible data that could be collected in the future to shed light on the nature and origin of UAP.
The independent UAP study team is a council of 16 experts from different fields on issues relevant to possible research methods for UAP. NASA commissioned this nine-month study to examine UAP from a scientific standpoint and establish a roadmap for using data and scientific tools to advance understanding of UAP.
On Sept. 14, 2023, the NASA Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Independent Study Team published its final report with a series of recommendations for how the agency can further our understanding of UAP. NASA promises to continue studying Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena. NASA believes it is important to remove the stigma related to UAP and calls on professionals, such as pilots, to report UAP.
