So do I which can make it a little confusing to see such apparently contradictory goals, to get a lot of people to toss UFOs into the "nutcase" bin while at the same time promoting the "belief" angle. On the surface that sounds impossible but your point about a "a more specific target population" might explain how they can do both at the same time. The information promoted is conflicting and some people will use the conflicts to toss it, but I can see a specific population who will apply their bias filters to reinforce their beliefs with the information consistent with the beliefs.

Multiple goals I agree. However, I still see a sales job for "belief."
Good citation of the Robertson Panel's recommendation, thank you. And yes following the money is usualy a worthwhile avenue so the "threat" for "increased defense spending" should be on a list of motives.

Likley their still going off this old panel's recomendation.
TTSA does the threat message probably to enhance ongoing defense spending.
They already know what they’ll find by opening up more interest?
That's a good list too, all you folks seem to have some good ideas for motives and yes I think that's just a start.

► Maintain that Bob Bigelow ran a proper aerospace company and various scientific studies into strange phenomena. When in fact this appears to be so badly ran that it was really nothing of the sort. Possibly used as a shell company for other purposes.
That's just a small part to start with.
I hesitate to venture a guess because every time TTSA used this tactic of "here's an announcement that at some unspecified date in the future, we will make another announcement about some earth-shaking revelation, that will happen even further in the future", it's always been a disappointment when it comes.

Disinfecting government and commercial facilities to avoid Covid-19 seems a bit far afield from the TTSA mission statement no?
