In my quest to understand what these things are, I keep reading. This morning I read this:
It was written by Deep Prasad. Here’s his profile: “CEO of ReactiveQ, BASc. Industrial Engineering ’18, University of Toronto, Physicist and Entrepreneur. Building the world’s most advanced multi-physics system.”
This is just an excerpt. He goes into more depth than this, and his engineering background is on display. If you approach it with an open mind, you’ll find it fascinating.
2 questions. Why are frequent incursions happening in restricted Navy airspace in the first place? And more importantly perhaps, how has this problem of frequent UAP incursions not been stomped out by the world’s most powerful military already? I don’t have an answer to the first question, I don’t know why these incidents are happening. I do think I know the answer to the second question however. UAPs are doing the equivalent of flying a drone in and around the restricted parts of the Area51 base and getting away with it. To understand how they pull it off, let’s look at a real world example of what the Navy considers to be a UAP. Out of the incidents depicted in the 3 videos the Navy refer to, the incident with the most amount of publicly available data, witness testimonies and scientific papers is the 2004 Tic-Tac event. It involves extremely experienced fighter pilots, F-18 Hornets and the USS Nimitz and USS Princeton guided-missile cruiser. These vessels housed the world’s most advanced radar and threat detection equipment at the time. There was a group of anomalous objects being tracked by the USS Princeton, these things were demonstrating hypersonic velocities and would sometimes travel in groups of 10 or more at a time. After more than a week of observing this, radar operator Kevin Day decided it was time to intercept these things to figure out what they were. This is when commander Fravor in the video below stepped in and went with a squadron to the location of the objects that were currently being observed. All of them instantly disappeared and only one stayed behind by the time Fravor and his crew got there in their F-18s.
I’m updating this to include the paragraph with links to supporting analysis:
As you can see, he says the object looked like a Tic-Tac, except it was 40 feet long. Here is a link to a 270 page paper doing an extensive scientific analysis of every data point that the team could get their hands on in the public domain. Here is another paper, this time from Dr.Kevin Knuth, former NASA research scientist and currently a professor of physics. It is peer reviewed and analyzes a handful of UAP cases, with the Tic-Tac being one of them. Both papers are chock filled with mathematical models that attempt to calculate and infer the g forces and velocities the Tic Tac was able to reach during its interaction with Fravor and his team. This is where things get interesting. According to Kevin Day, he said he tracked the Tic-Tac commander Fravor intercepted go from 28,000 feet to sea-level in approximately 0.8 seconds. This means the Tic-Tac was capable of achieving a velocity of at least 23,864 mph, which is 31 times the speed of sound. The maximum speed of the commander’s F-18 is 1,190 mph. This means the Tic-Tac is 20 times faster than the F-18 (23864mph/1190mph = 20).
