The government still can’t identify mystery drone operators in Colorado and Nebraska !!

(Perhaps the reason why our government cannot and will not identify mystery drone operators is because our government itself  (Dept. of Transportation, FAA, etc.)  and the military may all have been a part of this from the very onset.)*

by Daniel Howley, Technology Editor, YAHOO,  January 25, 2020:

In late December, numerous reports emerged about mysterious groups of drones flying around the skies of eastern Colorado and Nebraska.  Seen around the same time each night starting at 7:00 p.m. and running until 10:00 p.m., the drones were reported to measure 6 feet across, moving in groups as large as 30.

The drones raised concerns among residents and law enforcement in the region, and, according to Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, we might never know who’s been flying them.

We don’t know who they belong to, we don’t know who’s operating them, to this day we do not,” Chao told Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Andy Serwer during an interview at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

“We’re very lucky nothing happened, so the local law enforcements have stepped down,” she explained.  “So we’re not actively investigating that, because the local law enforcement stood down.”


The news of the investigations into the drones comes as Chao and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) push for a new rule that would allow for the remote identification of drones in flight.  The FAA currently requires owners of both commercial and consumer-grade drones that weigh between 0.55 pounds and 55 pounds register them with the agency.

Once registered, a drone owner receives a registration number for their device that they must then write on or stick to their drone.  That’s certainly helpful in instances where drones collide with structures, are taken down when flying in unrestricted areas, or crash into other aircraft.

But since you have to physically see the drones up close to read their registration numbers, it does nothing for those that are still aloft.

The proposed rule, according to Chao, would require that all drones over 0.55 pounds have some form of remote identification system. T he ID system would enable any third party to get information on virtually any drone in the sky.

The idea here isn’t just to prevent drones from flying in restricted airspace, which has been an issue for everything from airports to aerial firefighters who have had to divert their payloads as a result of drones in their flight paths.

“So our responsibility at the U.S. Department of Transportation is to ensure that the FAA, the agency that’s in charge of the drones, again, are viewing safety as a number one priority,” Chao said.  “We’re ensuring security of these drones, because obviously they need to be safe from a cybersecurity point of view. Thirdly, they need to respect privacy.”

The new rules are meant to ensure drones can be identified, but also will help in the eventual creation of a full-on Unmanned Aircraft System Traffic Management System.  That system is a project between the FAA, NASA, and other agencies to “ultimately identify services, roles and responsibilities, information architecture, data exchange protocols, software functions, infrastructure, and performance requirements for enabling the management of low-altitude uncontrolled drone operations.”

The new drone rules are currently under consideration, and are open for public comment.  The period ends on March 2.

Tic Tac “UFO” is a US Navy project? – – documents show the Navy got patent granted by warning of similar Chinese Tech advances

may be why further disclosure will compromise US National Security

by Brett Tingley and Tyler Rogoway,  THE WAR ZONE

Documents show the US Navy got “UFO” patent granted by warning of similar Chinese Tech advances:

The United States Secretary of Navy is listed as the assignee on several radical aviation technologies patented by an aerospace engineer working at the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) headquarters in Patuxent River, Maryland.

One of these patents describes a “hybrid aerospace-underwater craft” claimed to be capable of truly extraordinary feats of speed and maneuverability in air, water, and outer space alike thanks to a revolutionary electromagnetic propulsion system.

Sound far fetched?  You’re not alone.

A primary patent examiner at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) thought so too.  But then the Chief Technical Officer (CTO) of the Naval Aviation Enterprise personally wrote a letter addressed to the examiner claiming that the U.S. needs the patent as the Chinese are already “investing significantly” in these aerospace technologies that sound eerily similar to the UFOs reported by Navy pilots in now well-known encounters.

This raises the question, are the Chinese developing or even already flying craft leveraging similar advanced technology and is the Navy now scrambling to catch up?

The bizarre saga of the U.S. Navy and its sudden willingness to admit that its personnel regularly encounter unidentified objects in the skies keeps getting stranger.

Why the sudden shift in policy?

What is the motivation for disclosing these encounters to the public?

News outlets of all types have for months been discussing the matter, yet we still don’t know exactly what is actually happening here.

Clearly, the narrative is being carefully controlled by the Department of Defense and the Navy.

We can only base our speculation on what has been released to the public over the last few years through the media and what is public record.

With that said, maybe the most curious additions to the still-developing saga is a set strange aerospace patents filed by one Salvatore Cezar Pais, an aerospace engineer at NAWCAD.

While attempting to dig up as much information as possible about the inventor and these patents, I came across some supplemental documents in the USPTO’s databases that seem to imply that Navy leadership knows that these technologies are actually feasible – or that they want us or someone else to think that they are.

Pentagon and MoD officials feared UFOs were either “demonic” or sent by God, former investigators reveal

by Japer Hamill, METRO

UFO investigations carried out by the Pentagon and British Ministry of Defence were hampered by the religious beliefs of senior staff, former employees have revealed.

Two men who worked on secret UFO programs on both sides of the Atlantic said their work received ‘pushback’ from high-ranking officials who feared fast-moving objects glimpsed in our skies were either ‘demonic’ or divine.

Luis Elizondo, who headed up the US Defense Intelligence Agency’s secret Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), spoke out about his work in a New York Times article last year.

Footage of an encounter between an F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet and an oval-shaped object with no exhaust, wings or tail travelling at incredible speeds was later released to illustrate the sort of sightings investigated by the AATIP.

The project shut down in 2012 after allegedly amassing information on other aircraft which appeared to move extremely quickly without seeming to have any visible form of propulsion such as a jet engine – or hover in the air without techniques of generating ‘lift’ such as rotor blades.

This investigation was contracted out to BIGELOW AEROSPACE, whose founder once told CBS 60 Minutes he was ‘absolutely convinced’ that aliens are real and that our planet has been visited by UFOs.  Officially, this project was shut down so the cash could be ploughed into other projects.

But Elizondo, a former intelligence officer who ran AATIP, has told LAS VEGAS NOW that his study also received ‘pushback’ from The Pentagon because some top-ranking officials ‘opposed it on religious grounds’.

Nick Pope, a former UFO investigator for the Ministry of Defence, told us that he encountered the same sort of attitude when working in the UK.

“I was aware that Pentagon pushback on UFO research was in part due to the religious belief of some of those involved,” he said. “It was an odd irony that UFO investigations were being hampered because some people’s belief in God meant that they either didn’t believe in the existence of extraterrestrial life or that they regarded UFOs and extraterrestrials as demonic.”

“The fact that some people regard UFOs as demonic seems to have its roots in the biblical description of Satan as being  ‘the prince of the power of the air’  from Ephesians 2:2”.

Luis Elizondo says that he came up against religious pushback from senior staff when he ran the Pentagon’s UFO program, and said “I saw some evidence of this at the MoD too”.

The US Department of Defense has not released any files relating to the project, which did not explicitly state that it related to aliens but instead focused on studying 12 areas of interest including lift, propulsion and stealth techniques, as well as ‘human interface’ and ‘human effects’ – which is believed to mean investigators spoke to people who had encountered UFOs.

“What this tells me is that the Defense Intelligence Agency looked at some UFO sightings as part of a wider intelligence assessment of the threat from next-generation aircraft, missiles and drones,” Pope added.

“Embedding this work in a weapons and aviation program is a logical move, but raises the question of whether the real concern was Martians or Russians.’

A spokesperson for the Department of Defense inside the Pentagon recently confirmed the AATIP project had shut down in 2012, although the New York Times reporters that exposed its work believe it is still operational in some capacity.

Replying to a letter sent by the website BLACK VAULT, she wrote:  “The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program ended in 2012.  It was determined that there were other, higher priority issues that merited funding and it was in the best interest of the DoD to make a change”.

But, going back to this topic, it is a fact that some in the top echelon of the government  (and the military)  seem to believe that the UFO phenomenon may be “demonic” in origin, a “diabolical” contraption perpetrated by deceptive paraphysical entities playing tricks o the human mind. 

Yes, we must accept the fact that quite a number of government and military officials who espouse this theory seem to exist especially among those with conservative, Evangelical persuasions.

Former Area 51 and CIA employee implies Tic Tac UFO event was a classified test

from UFOLOGY UK – – December 3, 2019:

In an article released by The WARZONE on November 25, 2019 two men who worked on classified, advanced aerospace programs back in the 60’s, weigh in on the recent Navy UFO  (Tic-Tac)  Encounters.

T.D. Barnes started working on black op projects back in 1954, when he worked on the “world’s first operational surface-to-air missile systems (SAM).”  In the early 60’s, he worked for the CIA as a Special Projects engineer at Area 51, working on the A-12 spy plane  (Project OXCART).

CIA developed the highly secret A-12 OXCART as the U-2 spy plane’s successor, intended to meet the nation’s need for a very fast, very high-flying reconnaissance aircraft that could avoid Soviet air defenses.  It became operational on November 12, 1965.  Not only did the A-12 prove its worth during its short operational life, but the overall OXCART project produced the second-longest-lasting aerial reconnaissance platform in US intelligence history:  the SR-71.

Barnes states that the CIA was worried that a new, highly advanced Soviet Union radar system would be able to detect the A-12 when it flew missions over their airspace.  The CIA then developed a program called PALLADIUM that caused false targets to pop up on the Soviet Union’s new radar system.

In the 2010 Mirage Men book, Mark Pilkington discussed how Dr. Leon Davidson thought some UFO radar appearances were man-made, created for covert counterintelligence purposes.  Pilkington discussed a CIA program that created radar “ghosts,” Project Palladium, and how it might have been used to also spoof UFOs.

In this article, Barnes states:

“Using an electronics-laden C-97 [EC-97G], we could make Soviet radars believe they were tracking any number of aerial objects,” mused Barnes.  “At one point, a Russian MiG-15 pilot even claimed he could see the target and had a lock on it.”

Concerning the Tic Tac UFO sightings by Navy Super Hornet fighter pilots he states:

“I don’t have the answers to what the Navy aviators saw, but in my mind, I’m thinking, we are doing it again.”

Now here is where it gets interesting.

On November 7, The WARZONE published an article on the Navy’s latest revolution in electronic warfare, the Netted Emulation of Multi-Element Signature against Integrated Sensors, or NEMESIS.


The U.S. Navy has been quietly developing what could be one of the most important, transformative, and fascinating advances in naval combat, and warfare in general, in years.  This new electronic warfare “system of systems” has been clandestinely refined over the last five years and judging from the Navy’s own budgetary documents, it may be operational soon, if it isn’t already.  This secretive new electronic warfare “ecosystem” is known as Netted Emulation of Multi-Element Signature against Integrated Sensors, or NEMESIS.

It’s clear that, for years, the Navy has been developing and integrating multiple types of unmanned vehicles, shipboard and submarine systems, countermeasures and electronic warfare payloads, and communication technologies to give it the ability to project what is, in essence, phantom fleets of aircraft, ships, and submarines. These realistic-looking false signatures and decoys have the ability to appear seamlessly across disparate and geographically separated enemy sensor systems located both above and below the ocean’s surface:

Is the government testing a new drone-based search and reconnaissance technology?

by George Lauby, North Platte BULLTETIN – – January 5, 2020:


According to two theories that seem to make the most sense, the drones  (that are appearing nightly in Colorado, Nebraska and elsewhere)  belong to a government contractor.

One theory says the drones are searching for a missing nuclear warhead from underground missile silos that are in the area.  That theory comes from a memo from the Russia’s Ministry of Defence, making it suspect, although it cites some potentially credible sources, as reported last in the following article:

Behind the mysterious drone activities in Colorado, Nebraska and elsewhere

But perhaps the most credible theory is that the U.S. government is testing new search/reconnaissance technology.  Under the theory, a target item is placed in a large search area during the day, and that evening, drones go out to find it.

That comes from Dan Carlson of Gurley, Nebraska, which is north of Sidney.  Carlson says he is a meteorologist, storm chaser, and former pilot with lapsed Department of Homeland Security clearance who’s seen some interesting stuff in the skies and on military bases during his career.

Carlson said he followed a drone the night of January 4 in Cheyenne County in western Nebraska.  He said its estimated altitude was 800 ft to 1,000 ft., and its speed varied from hovering to 60 mph.

“Karen and I successfully chased an unmanned aerial vehicle through rural Cheyenne County last evening…. Later I received pics from a photographer showing a V-shaped formation of other UAVs on a similar course several miles ahead of the one I pursued,” he said on a Facebook post.

Carlson suspects two types of drones are involved.  He said a formation of “scanningUAVs might go out to “paint” an area, looking for the target.  Other UAVs might follow at lower altitude to check the findings of the scanning drones.

“Once the target has a positive ID, it would be retrieved by a ground team in the area,” and moved to a new location for the next test, he said.

Behind the mysterious drone activities in Colorado, Nebraska and elsewhere

(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – information unverified – – first please check this item for a more plausible explanation, i.e., the government testing a new drone-based search and reconnaissance technology – – and now check out the latest – – Drone invasion, a false alarm !! – – zero evidence of suspicious activity)

– – source unconfirmed, but possibly from Russian Ministry of Defense:

A highly-classified  OF SPECIAL IMPORTANCE”,   over 300-page appendix documenting current surveillance activities of the 90th Missile Wing as it pertains to a mysterious massive drone search currently being conducted over their vast Great Plains intercontinental nuclear warhead armed ballistic missile fields – – a massive drone search operation that’s now moved from the ICBM fields in Colorado to those in Nebraska – – which strongly suggests “something” is being urgently being sought after – – the worst feared scenario of which is a “gone missing” nuclear warhead.

Mysterious massive drone search operation has begun over vast Great Plains intercontinental ballistic missile fields.

According to the meager portions of this highly-classified report permitted to be openly discussed among national security, intelligence and defense ministry officials, on 31 May 2019, MoD analysts noted that US Air Force Colonel Peter M. Bonetti had taken command of the 90th Missile Wing and its LGM-30 Minuteman Missile Launch Sites – – a wing comprised of 4,200 military, civilian and contractor personnel who defend the United States with combat-ready airmen and nuclear forces from their base at Francis E. Warren Air Force Base located in Cheyenne-Wyoming – – with it worth noting that not far from where these mysterious drones were first sighted, F.E. Warren Air Force Base’s intercontinental ballistic missile fields begin.

Upon Colonel Bonetti assuming command of the 90th Missile Wing and its intercontinental ballistic missiles, this report details, a retrofitting operation of all of the ICBM’s under his command was begun to replace their Electro Explosive Devices  (EEDs) – – which are explosive or pyrotechnic components that initiate an explosive, burning, electrical, or mechanical train activated by the application of electrical energy – – and as employed in ICBM’s, can explode them in flight in the event of false launches or misfires – – but in 2017, saw the Australian Explosive Ordnance Safety Symposium warning in their hypothetical assessment document titled “Susceptibility Of 1A/1W Electro-Explosive Devices In The ADF Baseline RF Environment” that EEDs could be inadvertently, or even maliciously trigged to explode by certain radio frequencies (RF) they weren’t protected against.

As the retrofitting of ICBM’s and other nuclear weapons is a common occurrence among all of the world’s military forces having such weapons as new discoveries of potential flaws and technological advances are made, this report continues, the activities of Colonel Bonetti and his 90th Missile Wing raised no concerns among MoD analysts – -that is until a small army of US Department of Justice prosecutors, along with FBI and US Department of Defense intelligence agents, descended upon Francis E. Warren Air Force Base in the early morning hours of 25 November – – and who quickly followed their arrival by conducting a raid on a virtually unknown to the American people defense contractor named Capco Incorporated located in Grand Junction, Colorado—which is the company that makes the Electro Explosive Devices (EEDs) being retrofitted into these ICBM’s – – but whose only public news about came a week later when the US Department of Justice, on 3 December, released a little noticed document titled “Grand Junction Weapons Manufacturer CAPCO To Pay Over $1 Million To Resolve Allegations Of Fraud As To Grenade Launchers It Supplied To The U.S. Army”. 

Immediately following the US Department of Justice releasing their document about Capco Incorporated on 3 December, this report concludes, a rapid deployment was made into Francis E. Warren Air Force Base by operators and technicians belonging to a defense contractor named Black River Systems who are located in Utica-New York – – whom, this past May-2019, the US Air Force awarded an $88,733,141 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for operational counter-small unmanned aircraft systems  (s-UAS)  open systems architecture software/hardware systems – -and whose drones are currently making a massive and systematic grid-by-grid search of the Great Plains intercontinental nuclear warhead armed ballistic missile fields – – a massive search, however, only being conducted in the night time hours and at low levels – – thus providing a strong clue as to what is being urgently searched for, as underground nuclear warheads being sought in daylight are near undetectable because of what is called “background radiation” caused by the Sun—and has led MoD intelligence analysts to compile a terrifying working hypothesis that says upon Colonel Bonetti assuming command of the 90th Missile Wing whose ICBMs were being retrofitted by Capco Incorporated technicians with new and updated Electro Explosive Devices, he discovered that at least one of these nuclear warheads had gone missing – – and based on the massive drone grid search currently underway, may be secreted into one of the hundreds of abandoned ICBM underground missile silos scattered all over the States of Colorado, Nebraska, etc.


Drone experts believe military or military contractor, responsible for Colorado drone mystery:

Air Force’s drones testing – – originating out of Cheyenne, Wyoming?

by Tom Roeder, THE GAZETTE – – January 3, 2019:

While no one has taken responsibility, and even the Federal Aviation Administration has claimed ignorance, the answer could be a secretive Air Force program intended to keep prying eyes away from nuclear missile silos.

Air Force Global Strike Command, which is based in Louisana, has confirmed that it conducts counterdrone exercises out of F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming where it is based.

The command oversees underground Minuteman silos spread across northeastern Colorado, southeastern Wyoming and western Nebraska, the area where the drones have been spotted nightly the past two weeks.

The Air Force isn’t claiming ownership of the drones, but neither is it denying it.

F.E. Warren didn’t respond to an emailed question Friday on whether its counterdrone effort had anything to do with the recent sightings.

A Federal Aviation Administration map of the region where the drones have been spotted — Logan, Phillips, Sedgwick and Yuma counties — is pocked with red dots of where drones are forbidden, restricted airspace presumably above missile silos.

The Air Force counterdrone program at Warren, which includes extensive testing of civilian drones, relies on innovative technology including Dedrone, a system developed in Europe that detects and tracks small civilian drones using the radio signals they require for control.

Run by the 90th Security Support Squadron at Warren, the counterdrone program is one of several across the Defense Department to take aim at the unmanned aircraft.  For the nation’s missile troops, the camera carried by small drones present a threat because they could give an adversary clues on how to attack intercontinental ballistic missile, a key component of American power.

The 90th Missile Wing has a military police unit equipped with helicopters to protect missile silos from threats on the ground.  The Warren counterdrone program focuses on the small, commercially available drones that can be purchased on Amazon for as little as $50.

In a news release, the Air Force said the commercial drones “provide a realistic training environment.”

Lisa Meserve, who handles federal sales for Dedrone, said her company is working with private companies and government organizations including the Air Force to detect drone flights.  The firm has worked with F.E. Warren since an initial contract in 2017.

While Meserve couldn’t say where the drones in northeastern Colorado came from, she said the Air Force is fond of testing F.E. Warren’s drone-detecting capabilities.
