While in the navy I was on board an Aircraft Carrier. Coming from the disbanded WT rating, I moved to the supply department. I carried my nuclear TS
clearance with me to the Open Purchasing division, where I was tasked with purchasing non military equipment for the ship.
One of my tasks was to hold the security key for the IMARSAT, which is basically a satellite phone, but has the ability to make secure data and voice
So on to my point. While getting trained on this phone, I had to learn how to classify a data transmission. In the training I was told to use the
classification of CTS (Cosmic top secret) to classify events dealing with confirmed extra terrestrial events. The reason I was told this specific
statement was because of the way I asked the question.
I was told CTS was for Alien space craft. I said UFO's? My instructor said no, UFO's are TS, because they are describing a object that can not be
identified, which could end up being an object that is man made on earth. The CTS classification is for Identified Alien or ET space craft or other ET
events such as contact or equipment.
Now during the conversation my instructor and I joked about this subject, and from my point of view the humor was primarily due to being uncomfortable
talking about it. It could have been he was pulling my chain, however he never gave me any alternatives to use the CTS classification for, so as far
as I was trained, CTS remained as the ET classification.
After this, I noticed every time someone would talk to officials on TV, such as the Dick Cheney interview, they would ask do UFO's get covered up by
the Government. The fact that UFO's are not ET Space Craft specifically is where the problem comes.
If you have a opportunity to ask someone this question, make sure you specify ET space craft and not UFO.
