with the summers revelation that the US Navy considers ufo's to be real, a team of adventure capitalists, university professors, and military vets, are launching a project to track ufo's off the California Coast.


UAP eXpeditions is a non-profit group based in Oregon that will “field a top-notch group of uber-experienced professionals providing the public service of field testing new UAP related technologies.” With some of the Silicon Valley UFO Hunters, UAP eXpeditions will pioneer the ability to predict, find, observe, and document UAP for study and analysis. They will use “classical observation techniques, by trained observers and scientists, while using the latest experimental technologies—in the right places and the right times,” Kevin Day, the group’s founder and CEO, wrote in a Facebook post viewed by Motherboard.

Vice online story link.

Kevin Day former radar Naval Officer who followed the infamous tic tac ufo's off the USS Nimitz is the founder and CEO. Day has been featured and interviewed on any number of ufo related/themed tv shows, including "Contact", and " Unidentified."


Day, who has appeared on the History Channel’s Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation and Discovery Channel’s Contact, is a retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer and radar operator. Day served in the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group on the USS Princeton during the 2004 infamous “Nimitz UFO Incident” which was reported by The New York Times in December of 2017.

He recalls tracking the infamous “Tic Tac” UFOs for several days around Catalina Island off the coast of California using the USS Princeton’s advanced radar system. Now, he believes that these objects continue to operate along the same trajectory and “migrate” from Catalina Island south along the California coast.

The company’s white paper is pretty wild. It asks, “Do fleets of UAP 'migrate' from Catalina Island to Guadalupe Island with a certain frequency? And if so, how well do whale songs correlate, if at all, to UAP appearances?” It’s unclear how whale songs are relevant here, but let’s move along.




Day now says that tracking these objects has led to some special abilities, such as "advanced cognition."


Day, who believes that his experience tracking these objects has led to some curious special abilities, such as “advanced cognition” told Motherboard that the organization is hoping to “offer technology developers a way to test their new tech at no direct cost to them.” Using state of the art cameras and other experimental monitoring devices, the idea is to put this high tech gear into the field and attempt to track unknown aerial objects off the coast of California.



Dr. Kevin Knuth explained how this project will work:


Leading the team of scientists is Dr. Kevin Knuth, a former scientist with NASA’s Ames Research Center, now an associate professor of physics at the University of Albany. Knuth specializes in machine learning and the study of exoplanets. While the organization and the project is still in its infancy, Knuth told Motherboard that “the goal of the expedition is to give us some ground truth. We aim to try to observe these objects directly, and record them using multiple imaging modalities.”

Knuth explained that the project has two phases. First, the team “will obtain current satellite imagery of the area (more or less in the area of Catalina Island and southward for ~100 miles) and determine whether these anamolous objects can be observed. We will monitor these satellite images both manually and using machine learning and build up a database of detections, classifications, and any observed patterns of activity.”



he went on further:




If, and it's a big “if,” the satellite imagery does point to a strange concentration of unknown objects, the team will go hunt UFOs. The second step, which is slated for November 2020, is to basically park a large boat off the coast of California loaded with various cameras and sensors to detect and record anomalous aerial activity. The team has already begun negotiations to charter the MV Horizon, a small research vessel.

“We will be using tracking security cameras in the visual to infrared wavelengths with telephoto lenses, human eyes on the water with high power binoculars and spotting scopes, as well as digital SLR cameras with high power telephoto lenses ranging from 400mm - 600+mm,” Knuth told Motherboard. “We plan to have high-quality drones in the air with imaging capabilities. We are looking into IR imaging as well, as well as detectors for x-ray, gamma-ray and custom-built neutron detectors (which are designed to look for dark matter).”


Dr, Knuth believes the time is now to offer some scientific work on of ufo's:




Knuth believes it is time to start doing real scientific work on UFOs. While the study is unorthodox (especially the whale bit), so is the very real fact that unidentified aerial vehicles are tracked by the Air Force and Navy, and seem to easily evade the technological weapons apparatus maintained by the most powerful military on the planet.

“The failure to study these phenomena scientifically has resulted in a state of ignorance, which is unacceptable considering the aviation safety issues that have been reported by the US Navy,” stated Knuth.

Nice...did you draw inspiration for your thread from mine?

well that's interesting because I did run a search on the site, nothing came up. Happens with me from time to time though. Sorry, I didn't mean to hijack your thread.

To be fair, this is nothing new since they have been considered "real" since the late 1940s - hence Projects Sign (1948), Grudge (1949), and Blue Book (1952).

What they ARE is a different matter altogether.

There are witnesses in the 2004 Nimitz affair who need to be approached with extreme caution, as warned by main man Dave Fravor himself - or more poetically described by George Knapp (sitting next to Fravor) as "bullsh#ers".

Speaking of which...


Kevin Day...




I noticed Kev failed to mention his magical Healing powers...


Imagine it. Suddenly, your personality begins to change, you have premonitory dreams, you become suddenly smarter, more prescient, you can manifest stuff, you, apparently, healed your dog by touching him, etc. etc.

uhmm....so why hasn't a branch of the military or spook agencies already done this?....they obviously have the latest tech, knowledge base, and trained personal....and now somehow a civilian organization will do a better job?....something is not right

This could go well, or crash an burn.

Lots of start-ups don't survive, but a private source jumping into the game with none of the usual suspects attached?
I'm optimistic.

OK. So what? There were at least THREE other witnesses on the USS Princeton alone that saw the radar tracing, four pilots when David Fravor was aloft, four additional pilots who actually were the ones who captured the images (NOT Fravor & Co.) So for this once incident we have a dozen witnesses. So Kevin Day you think is a bit flaky.

What about the other eleven? And that's just the Princeton/Nimitz incident. Off the Atlantic we have a couple more videos with a whole different set of witnesses with the USS Roosevelt. And the DIFFERENCE here is that this time not only have we seen the videos, the Navy has acknowledged that they are real. They did not do that with Projects Grudge, Sign and Blue Book.

But Kevin Day is a flake, according to you. Keep holding onto that as tight as you can, because that's all you've got.

Come on Shawman he's been around here longer than that.
All tho I understand your suspicions.

Whales, eh? Did he talk to William Shatner?
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) To save Earth from an alien probe, Admiral James T. Kirk and his fugitive crew go back in time to San Francisco in 1986 to retrieve the only beings who can communicate with it: humpback whales.

Day has had some issues after his sighting, but it seems that Fravor is Brit's hero. More amazing is that Brit believes in Knapp.

Not seeing any UFOs. Just some hodads and gremmies.
