A very brief report stating that there is enough evidence of UFO's to warrant a scientific study

Document date: 1852-08-01
Department: Section Operations, ATIAA
Author: Not Stated/ATIAA
Document type: report
pages: 1


Archivist's Notes: This very short report simply states that Lt Ruppelt and Col Kirkland believe that there is enough evidence from qualified sources to warrant a scientific investigation into the UFO phenomena.

One page document from 8th Jan 1952 stating that there was a meeting held on 26th Dec. 1951 between Lt Ruppelt and Col. Kirkland and members of a group whose name was blacked out.

The topic of their meeting was whether or not there was enough evidence to warrant further investigation about UFO sightings from Project Grudge. They decided there was and that they would attempt to make a statistical analysis to obtain a pattern or trend.

A couple of unanswered questions arise for me: who was the group they met with; why do meetings happen the day after Christmas when many people take holidays?

This document became part of a 107 page report on Project Stork…sourced from : CUFON

According to Ruppelt after reviewing the orginal Project Grudge data, every scientist and engineer wanted to give top priority to getting reasonably accurate measurements of the speed, altitude, and size of the reported UFO's. This is what the report means by a "statistical analysis to obtain a pattern or trend."

As for the meeting, again according to Ruppelt:

Everyone present at the meeting agreed—each had read or had been briefed on these incredible reports. In fact, two of the people present had seen UFO's.

Before the meeting adjourned, Colonel Dunn had one last question. He knew the answer, but he wanted it confirmed. "Does the United States have a secret weapon that is being reported as a UFO?"
The answer was a flat "No."
