Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) are objects or phenomena that cannot be identified or explained by military or civilian authorities. This means that the origin or nature of these objects or phenomena is unknown and cannot be explained with current scientific knowledge.
There are many theories about the origins of UAP, ranging from natural phenomena to technologies not yet known to the general public.
Although there are many rumors and stories about UAP, there is no scientific evidence to date to suggest that these phenomena come from non-natural sources.
However, there are a growing number of countries such as the United States, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Japan, Brazil, Chile, Russia and China that are researching UAP and collecting data to understand these phenomena.

It is also important for the Netherlands and the European Union to conduct research into Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena, as this can lead to improved safety and security of the airspace above the Netherlands and the European Union. Furthermore, research can lead to technological innovations and economic growth.
