Space Lasers, Crowd Control Heat Among Weapons Proposed US Government UFO Program

Laser-equipped spacecraft were supposed to be possible by 2030, and a secret government agency wanted to make planes invisible.

The now defunct Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), which ran from 2007 to 2012, examined the viability of these proposals, among other wild plans like bomb the moon.

Most science fiction type ideas – which were theoretical or speculative and never materialized – were part of a 1,600 page report of the secret agency of the Department of Defense (DoD).

“Space provides the ideal environment for the propagation of the laser beam” which can crack or melt targets like missiles, the 2009-2010 report states.

“These devices offer the potential for an entirely new class of weapons and capabilities that can complement (but not replace) existing kinetic energy (KE) weapons and electronic warfare.”

Kinetic energy weapons – bullets, shells, missiles and bombs – can hit stationary targets but cause collateral damage and have unintended consequences.

“High-energy laser (HEL) weapons, on the other hand, start delivering the energy of the laser beam to the target at the speed of light,” according to the report.

“However, they require a finite dwell time to accumulate enough thermal energy (heat) at the aiming point to achieve the desired effect (similar to a blowtorch).

“The strength of a HEL weapon is its ability to accurately deliver a limited amount of energy to a small location with little collateral damage to objects near people.

“Speed-of-light energy transfer, coupled with precision tracking, enables HEL weapons to effectively engage larger targets that are highly maneuverable, visible only for short periods of time or at very long ranges. »

According to the report, space provides the best environment for the propagation of the laser beam which can destroy missiles.

It was thought spacecraft could be equipped with lasers “in 20 years,” but “political (not legal) concerns” would prevent the DoD from deploying it, the report said.

He was referring to a “microwave device for crowd control, called the Active Denial, which has been shown to produce temporary pain without any injury” as an example of technology that “politics” has set aside.

“Other countries may not exercise similar restraint, as evidenced by the open marketing of blinding laser weapons despite a 1980 Geneva Convention banning their development or use,” the report said.


The Agency explored the cloaking technology that would make the fictional Marvel Invisible Woman comic character a reality.

The theory behind the “invisible” planes is that “light refracting materials – such as glass or water – appear as curved spaces on their own”, according to the report.

Bending light around an object creates the “ultimate optical illusion: invisibility”.


Officials also feared that had he continued with the program, it could have resulted in the weaponization of space, fueling fears of galactic conflict.

The report was released after The Sun requested a copy of any “files, reports or video files” related to the Pentagon’s secret UFO program – the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) 18 December 2017 – under the freedom of information.

FOIA bomb transportation includes reports on the search for the DIA biological effects of UFO sightings on humans – including burns, heart problems, sleep disturbances – and even bizarre occurrences such as “Apparent abduction” and “missing pregnancy”.

One of the document sets on how to classify “Abnormal Measurements behavior” – with encounters with “ghosts, yetis, spirits, elves, and other mythical/legendary entities” classified as “AN3” and seeing a UFO with aliens on board would be “CE3”.

Other documents obtained include studies on communicate with extraterrestrial civilizations and deep space exploration plans and colonization.

It was exposed by whistleblower Luis Elizondo, who ran the program, in 2017.

Two explosive videos of unexplained UFO sightings by US military personnel – investigated by AATIP – were also released at the time.

Approximately 22 million in funding was provided for the period of five years.
