Kevin Day is a retired United States Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer. A former Operations Specialist and TOPGUN Air Intercept Controller with more than 20 years of experience in Strike Group air defense including war-time operations. An expert operator of the highly advanced SPY-1 radar system with years of service onboard AEGIS-equipped ships including the VINCENNES, CHOSIN, and PRINCETON. Kevin has logged hundreds of air-to-air intercepts of suspect aircraft in both training and war-time operations.

In November 2004, during combat training exercises, it was Princeton’s Combat Information Center that discovered the fleets of anomalous air contacts, and it was radar operator, Kevin Day, that directly instructed the pilots to change their course and investigate the unidentified radar spot observed by Princeton’s own radar. The infrared footage of the encounter, aka “Tic-Tac incident,” was released to the public in December 2017. On 17 September 2019, the U.S. Navy acknowledged that the three UFO videos are of real unidentified phenomena. The Navy has since reportedly updated its protocols for pilots to report UAP sightings in an effort to reduce the stigma associated with such reports.

Kevin Day founded UAP eXpeditions with Gary Voorhis, a non-profit group of former military officials, Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, university professors, and scientists, that will “field a top-notch group of uber-experienced professionals providing the public service of field testing new UAP related technologies.” With some of the Silicon Valley UFO Hunters, UAP eXpeditions will pioneer the ability to predict, find, observe, and document UAP for study and analysis.

As of 5/3/2022, Kevin separated from UAPx to provide his expertise and insights to a new group studying this mysterious phenomenon.  The entire UAPx team wishes the best for Kevin and success in his new ventures into the unknown.
