A new office, called the ‘All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office’ (AARO for short), has been created to ‘detect, identify and attribute objects of interest… and, as necessary, to mitigate any associated threats to safety of operations and national security.’
The AARO will become the central hub for collecting, investigating and managing reports of UFO sightings around the world.
It will span the entire US Department of Defence, which includes the Army, Navy and Air Force.
So when an incident occurs like the one in 2019 – when the USS Omaha was surrounded by as many as 14 UFOs flying as fast as 160mph – the AARO will step in to investigate.
According to a statement from the Pentagon, they’ll be paying close attention to ‘anomalous, unidentified space, airborne, submerged and transmedium objects.
If you’re not clear on what a ‘transmedium’ object is, it’s a craft capable of moving seamlessly between land, air and sea.
The AARO will be headed up by its new director: Dr. Sean M. Kirkpatrick, who was most recently the chief scientist at the Defence Intelligence Agency’s Missile and Space Intelligence
The global interest in UFOs has surged in recent years and the formation of the AARO comes after the Pentagon released a report on more than 140 recorded UFO sightings last year.
Sadly, they concluded there was no evidence of alien activity in any of them.
And, in all likelihood, the Pentagon has probably authorised the creation of the AARO not because of a concern over alien visitors, but because the US government is a bit nervy over other countries creating more advanced aerospace technology.
