US Army announces agreement with To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science to study 'mystery materials' of unexplained origin

to the stars academy
To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science (TTSA), a public benefit corporation led by rock star Tom DeLonge, announced a collaborative agreement with the U.S. Army this week. The original press release sent out by TTSA was vague, and offered few details. However, the Army spoke with The Black Vault to discuss the agreement, and offer a copy of the entire document, nearly in full (understandably, a few phone numbers were removed for privacy reasons).

The news broke on October 17, 2019, wherein TTSA stated in a press release, "[TTSA] announced today a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command [CCDC] to advance TTSA's materiel and technology innovations in order to develop enhanced capabilities for Army ground vehicles." The press release continued, "TTSA will share its discoveries with Ground Vehicle System Center (GVSC) and Ground Vehicle Survivability and Protection (GVSP) and the U.S. Army shall provide laboratories, expertise, support, and resources to help characterize the technologies and its applications."

Comment: Seems pretty strange for an organization that believes the US government is hiding the existence of extraterrestrials and UFOs from the public to then outsource some of their research to that same shady, untrustworthy government.

For more details on just what is being announced as under research, see TTSA - US Army Agreement - quantum communications, and camouflage where it says:
This blog post is about two specific items, mentioned in the CRADA, namely "quantum communications," and camouflage.

CRADA

On page 22 of the CRADA, Article D is headed "Technical Tasks and Associated Resources." D1 Government Activity. "1. The Government is interested in a variety of the Collaborator's technologies, such as, but not limited to ... quantum communications..."

"D2 Collaborator Activity.
Collaborator shall...3. Provide the agreed upon materiel technologies for USG testing and evaluation...3 c) Quantum communication 1) Related research to-date on theories, studies, mathematical formulas, and prototypes 2) future developments, prototypes, and hardware associated with the specific quantum product."

What do we know of TTSA's work on quantum communications?
In one of TTSA's filings with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, there was a mention of plans for 2019 which included "continuing evaluation of quantum communication technology."

On 10 March 2019, Twitter user "dregs" posted a tweet which included a link to a relevant US patent application. This application, US20180062765A1, was submitted by Harold E Puthoff and Christopher A Eusebi, assigned to EarthTech International Inc, filed on 31 August 2016 and granted 23 July 2019.

The patent is headed "Communications system." The abstract reads:

" A communication system using vector and scalar potential is disclosed. The system uses field-free potentials signaling for many applications where the absence of shielding effects in sea water, plasma or other dense media due to the fact that the absence of (E,B) fields eliminates the possibility of induced charge and current response in the media being transited."

Under the section headed "Claims" on page 17 of the downloadable PDF is:

"What is claimed is:

1. A system for communication with a submarine disposed beneath saltwater:

An antenna disposed outside of the submarine, the antenna being configure to produce an EM field having a frequency greater than 100Mhz, said EM field having a vector potential A and a scalar potential phi;

A receiver disposed within the submarine, the received configured to receive the A and Phi fields and convert the A and Phi fields into an electromagnetic signal; and

A cooling system configured to cool a portion of the received to below liquid nitrogen temperature."

My comments:

1. The patent specifically speaks of a "system for communications with a submarine" under the water. What would be the interest to the US Army's Ground Vehicle Systems Center? I cannot see a connection.

2. The patent is assigned to EarthTech International Inc., and not the TTSA.

Camouflage

A second notable item in the CRADA is again be found on page 22, under section "D2 Collaborator Activity."

"Collaborator shall...3. provide the agreed upon materiel technologies for USG testing and evaluation...e) Active Camouflage and Directed Photon Projection 1) Projection system 2) Technology associated with these systems 3) Materiel projection surfaces 4) Proposed applications of these systems"

What do we know of TTSA's work on "Active Camouflage and Directed Photon Projection?"

A search of the TTSA's filings with the US government's Securities and Exchange Commission failed to locate any mention of "Active Camouflage and Directed Photon Projection." It appears that this particular project has never been mentioned by TTSA on any previous occasion, as far as I can determine.

I did however, find a connection between the patent for quantum communication, and work on camouflage which would be relevant to the US Army's Ground Vehicle Systems Center. You will note above, that one of the names mentioned in the quantum communication patent was Christopher A Eusebi. Well, it turns out that Christopher A Eusibi is one of the to names on a patent concerning "System for producing camouflage pattern based on perception machine vision."
Patent number 10282628, dated 7 May 2019, has an abstract with reads:

"A method and system for evaluating camouflage pattern with statistically significant effectiveness in various environments and for using a generic algorithm to produce an improved camouflage patterns."

However, I failed to find any mention of Eusebi and "active camouflage and directed photon projection." Hopefully, a reader of this blog post may be able to assist with further information.

Bigfoot prints found in western North Carolina?

Strange footprints found near Casar, North Carolinea
An electrician in North Carolina recently stumbled upon a series of sizeable prints that left him wondering if they may have been created by Bigfoot. According to a local media report, the remarkable discovery occurred as Joe Scarborough was working on a job at a residence in the town of Casar and he noticed the odd tracks outside the home. The bewildered observer initially suspected that perhaps the large prints had come from a human, marveling to himself that "somebody's got a big foot."

However, when Scarborough looked closer at the tracks, he was struck by the sheer size of the impressions, noting that they seemed to measure thirteen or fourteen inches long. To his credit, the quick-thinking electrician went back to his truck and grabbed a tape measure so that he could properly document the strange find. Based on how some small plants were intermingled with the prints, Scarborough surmised that the tracks were relatively fresh.

Mysterious rash of cattle mutilations in Oregon

Dead Bull

The crumpled carcass of a bull lies on U.S. Forest Service ground. It was among several killed and mutilated this summer in eastern Oregon.
In the early morning light, dust from hooves creates a fog at Silvies Valley Ranch in remote eastern Oregon. Cowboys whistle and talk low to their eager herding dogs. They're moving the cattle from one vast, sage-studded range to another.

Five young purebred bulls mysteriously showed up dead on the ranch this past summer, drained of blood and with body parts precisely removed.

The ranch's vice president, Colby Marshall, drives his truck down a U.S. Forest Service road.

"Then we'll get out and take a little walk to where one of the bulls was found. And the carcass is still there," Marshall says.

Coming upon one of the dead bulls is an eerie scene. The forest is hot and still, apart from a raven's repeating caw. The bull looks like a giant, deflated plush toy. It smells. Weirdly, there are no signs of buzzards, coyotes or other scavengers. His red coat is as shiny as if he were going to the fair, but he's bloodless and his tongue and genitals have been surgically cut out.

Marshall says these young livestock were just reaching their top value as breeding bulls. The animals are worth around $6,000 each. And since these were breeding bulls, hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of future calves were lost too.

Finding these young Herefords in this remote country can sometimes take the ranch's experienced cowboys days. Ranch staff members are now required to ride in pairs and are encouraged to carry arms.

"It's rugged," Marshall says. "I mean this is the frontier. If some person, or persons, has the ability to take down a 2,000-pound range bull, you know, it's not inconceivable that they wouldn't have a lot of problems dealing with a 180-pound cowboy."

UFO? Lantern? Mysterious light seen on Lincolnshire, UK coast

Strange light in Lincolnshire

A man couldn't believe his eyes when he spotted a mysterious bright light in the sky on the Lincolnshire coast.

Gary Couldwell was outside his caravan in Ingoldmells having a cigarette at around 7.15pm yesterday, Thursday, October 3.

When he looked up, he saw a strange light hovering above Bibby's bar on the promenade - and quickly called to his wife Janet who was inside.

"I shouted at my wife to get my phone out the caravan as I didn't have it," he said.

"She came out with the phone and I zoomed in on it using night vision. Then, it did a loop and shot up into the sky and dissapeared."

Mr Couldwell, 61, says that neither he or his wife have any idea what it could have been and that the lens on his phone was completely clean at the time.

Footage caught aboard a ferry crossing the Pamlico Sound from Ocracoke Island to Swan Quarter, North Carolina
A fleet of lights recorded off North Carolina's Outer Banks has ignited a debate about whether they are honest-to-goodness UFOs or just part of a mysterious military exercise.

William Guy posted a 31-second video Sept. 28 on YouTube, showing what appears to be 14 glowing orbs over the water. He refers to it as a "real UFO sighting."

"Anybody tell me what that is?" Guy says in the video. "We're in the middle of the ocean, on a ferry, nothing around. Look. Nothing around. No land, no nothing."

Guy told the McClatchy news group he's from Indiana and is among the workers sent to repair damage on Ocracoke Island caused by intense flooding during Hurricane Dorian.

Mysterious black ring spotted in Moscow region
Residents of Kalininets were celebrating the city day when the obscure object appeared in the sky. No explanation has been provided so far.

Not a day goes by without news of UFOs or some other paranormal events. While residents of the United States are scratching their heads over a snake-like UFO that was again spotted by a YouTuber, residents of Kalininets in the Moscow region are trying to figure out what a black circular thing floating in the sky for half an hour on 28 September was.

Kalininets is located in the Naro-Fominsk district, which is home to the 4th Tank Division. Some users thought the ring could have appeared as a result of military exercises or could be the product of chemical activities. One Instagram user sent a photo dating back to 2004, which shows the same black ring. The photo prompted speculation of an impending doomsday.

Other users were more positive and claimed that someone in the sky was apparently playing tic-tac-toe.

The "triangular craft" recorded by the International Space Station live feed "hovering" over Earth has lead viewers to believe it is a US Space Force ship

A "triangular craft" recorded by the International Space Station live feed "hovering" over Earth has lead viewers to ask if its a US Space Force ship.

The United States Space Force is a proposed space warfare service branch of the US Armed Forces, which is intended to have control over military space operations.

And a newly emerged clip has conspiracists believing the force may have already been implemented.

Three videos appearing to show encounters between US Navy aircraft and UFOs are real, the service has admitted, while insisting the clips merely show so far "unexplained aerial phenomena" and were never cleared for public release.

Three widely-circulated clips depicting military aircraft interacting with UFOs - mysterious objects performing maneuvers not possible using existing aviation technology - were never supposed to be released to the public, the Navy's Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare spokesman Joseph Gradisher told the Black Vault earlier this month, but the videos are genuine - and their contents can't be explained.

From left, Josh Brinkley and Daniel Lucero were out bow hunting for elk near Cerro de la Olla Monday (Sept. 2) northwest of Taos when they had a strange encounter with a gigantic white structure that then disappeared. A day earlier, Brinkley saw what he thought were two hunters, but later described as oddly clothed "very tall figures with oversized heads." The two men are still trying to figure out what they saw.
Bow hunters Josh Brinkley and Daniel Lucero, dressed in camouflage gear, looked a little uncomfortable sitting in chairs at a local newspaper.

The Santa Fe County residents had just come into Taos after several days in rugged terrain near Cerro de la Olla, also called Pot Mountain, northwest of town near Ute Mountain.

They had a strange tale to tell and they weren't sure of their reception.

"We're a couple of guys that don't believe in much, but we believe now," Brinkley said.

They went hunting for elk.

They encountered aliens or something else so strange they don't know what to call it.

UFO seen grazing past Popocatepetl volcano in Mexico

UFO volcano Popocatepetl
The UFO hunter argued that no one on Earth would risk flying an aircraft that close to a volcano's mouth, not to mention that the object he saw allegedly uses some kind of alien cloaking technology.

Prolific hunter of elusive alien spacecraft Scott C. Waring, who previously reported findings such as the "Mona Lisa of Mars" and an alleged underwater alien base, has come up with yet another bold claim, insisting that he detected "an unknown object flying through the plume of smoke" over the Popocatepetl volcano in Mexico.

As Waring explained in his blog ET Data Base, he made this discovery while watching a live volcano cam when he spotted the object in question, which has "no wings, tail or contrail," and which looked like a white disk "with a dark hump at its lower center."

Comment: It's notable that there have been numerous UFO sightings in, around, and even entering volcanoes, all around the world:
