Hal Puthoff on SSE/IRVA Conference

Hal Puthoff recently spoke on The 2018 SSE & IRVA Joint Conference, which was arranged by two pseudo-scientific organizations, Society for Scientific Exploration and International Remote Viewing Association.

While there was little new or newsworthy, that presentation nevertheless contained tidbits that are of interest in relation to the earlier posts here about the AATIP/AAWSAP programs and the role BAAS and it's subcontractors played in it. So here's some commentary based on the just released transcript.
AATIP Puthoff describes AATIP as follows:
It was deeply buried, but the New York Times had good sources and they came up with information about the program We already know he himself was one of the sources! Leslie Kean has revealed how it all began with a tip and a confidential four hour meeting on October 4, 2017 between her and the TTSA guys, Puthoff, Elizondo, Semivan and Mellon. She was shown "revelatory documents and data off the record." Puthoff seems to …

BAASS and AAWSAP

This post is an addendum to the AAWSAP/AATIP analysis that tried to establish the timeline of the AAWSAP and AATIP projects, as well as Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS) involvement in it.

As detailed there, a review of official documents and articles in the media revealed that BAASS was filed as a new company on January 29, 2008 and won the AAWSAP contract in September 2008, after which the program officially began on September 30, 2008 with one base year and possibility for 4 more optional years. It seems the government only paid for one option year, after which Bigelow reportedly funded one more year himself.

At some point (after the first option year) AAWSAP was turned into a downsized limited scope AATIP and Elizondo became the program manager. It's unclear if those happened at the same time. It's also unclear how and if BAASS still collaborated with AATIP.

AATIP/AAWSAP - A tale of two programs

Image
It's been a while since we first learned about the existence of the so called Pentagon UFO program. Initial reporting made it sound almost too good to be true with promises of high quality official government UFO evidence. Now that the dust has began to settle, it's unclear whether there is anything of any significance under it.
This post is an attempt to piece together information from various and sometimes contradictory sources in order to evaluate what that program actually was and did. The combination of information from early articles with recent revelations seems to result in a reasonably consistent picture already.
Initial revelation The existence of the program was initially revealed in connection to the TTSA launch event on October 11, 2017 and a pair of Huffington Post articles by Leslie Kean before and after the event.

At the time, nobody revealed the name of the program but it was described as "sensitive aerospace threat identification program".
However …
