End of Year Statement (2021) on the State of UAPx UFO/UAP Research
UAPx Inc. (UAPx), (www.uapexpedition.org), an Oregon Non-Profit all-volunteer organization, releases its End of Year Statement on the State of its Unidentified Flying Object/Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UFO/UAP) research efforts.
The primary purpose of UAPx is researching UFO/UAP while giving direct access to the general public of reviewed and analyzed data. UAPx designs, tests, implements, and utilizes specialized equipment to fill the gaps in sensor technology identified by the United States Government. Functioning as a civilian analog to the US Government's UAPTF, the AOIMSG, and other offices tasked with studying the UFO/UAP phenomena, UAPx provides research, education, inspiration, and technological developments in the study of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.
While UAPx supports efforts of organizations, such as the "Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies," we remain the only all-volunteer and non-funded civilian organization to have collected actionable scientific data regarding the UFO/UAP phenomena on multiple disparate sensor platforms with the goal of blind peer review and publication. However, with an internal policy of science first, UAPx remains concerned that there is no unified, comprehensive process for collecting and analyzing intelligence on UFO/UAP from civilians across the United States. Therefore, UAPx formed a mobile investigation team for the express purpose of gathering, analyzing, and disseminating relevant data to the public as it relates to UFO/UAPs. The UAPx Mobile Investigation Team creates detailed analyses of UAP data and intelligence reporting collected during expeditions which include, but are not limited to:
Measurements and Signals Intelligence
2021 End of Year Results
UAPx issues the following official statement regarding our collection and analysis of data as it pertains to the UFO/UAP phenomena:
Throughout 2021, UAPx members participated in expeditions in multiple locations across the American Mid-West and Southwest, areas known for high instances of reported UFO/UAP phenomena activity. In all cases, UAPx received funding from 3rd parties for the expeditions. The funding came with imposed restrictions on data release in exchange for fully financing the expeditions. UAPx expects full transparency and the expiration of these restrictions sometime between March and June 2022. When legally allowed, UAPx will provide, to the world, our reviewed and analyzed data as well as all raw data once we identify and secure storage and servers adequate to the task. It is the opinion of UAPx that the data our team collected, processed, and analyzed, is the most significant collection of scientific data regarding the UFO/UAP phenomena. UAPx adhered to strict scientific methodology in collecting the data, enabling expert analysis, and fostering peer review for potential publication in one or more scientific journals.
Throughout 2021, and across multiple investigations, UAPx collected over 600 hours of infrared video from numerous FLIR® cameras deployed at expedition locations; a combined total of three terabytes of visual imagery through multiple camera platforms; over 100 hours of radiological data from both survey meters as well as a detector designed to measure highly energetic particles from different sources when over specific flux and close enough in proximity; over 100 hours of Quantum Random Number Generator data; 1.4 Gigabytes of data from RF spectrum analysis; and the company broadcast approximately 750 megabytes of digital data towards potential UFO/UAP through the use of audio-to-multispectral output broadcast devices.
The general results from the data collection and analysis reveal a statistically significant number of anomalous objects and phenomena still undergoing examination before public release, the nature, and type of which may suggest a definitive occurrence of UFO/UAP presence and activity. Furthermore, UAPx believes that the number of incidents captured and undergoing analysis may present as statistically more significant than anticipated.
UAPx utilized disparate sensor technology to capture multiple data points. This technology provided corroborative evidence of unknown phenomena in multiple investigation locations. Preliminary analysis of our data marks a significant milestone in UFO/UAP research as UAPx believes that for the first time, we own sensor data from multiple platforms, which corroborate the data captured by other sensors during the same time frames. In addition, UAPx worked closely with providers of radar data, which allowed for additional corroborative data and assisted in eliminating false positives. Finally, data from survey meters and highly charged energetic particle detectors used by UAPx are under review for correlations in ionizing radiation events, which may occur during observation of anomalies in recorded UAPx IR and visible light video captures.
The evidentiary value of the data collected by UAPx is still under evaluation; however, UAPx believes the quality, quantity, variety, and correlative data is potentially the most significant ever captured in the research of UFO/UAP phenomena. UAPx acknowledges there may exist a sufficiently advanced human technology that is as of yet unaccounted for in the analysis. However, initial results suggest that data captured by UAPx eliminate human technology as a possibility for many instances of interest under further review.
UAPx physicists Dr. Kevin Knuth, Ph.D., and Dr. Matthew Szydagis, Ph.D., with the assistance of all UAPx team members, developed and deployed machine learning algorithms that are analyzing data from multiple instruments; they will write findings to secure publication in high-impact scientific journals through different fields of physics and related branches of science. This process requires months of analysis and writing and could take over a year, depending on the findings. External blind peer reviews are forthcoming, which adhere to the scientific method for publication. UAPx anticipates finding journal editors willing to consider our manuscripts, despite the controversial topic involved. The publication effort is a difficult uphill battle and may cause further delay in the overall release of findings. However, the internal (self-criticism and self-skepticism) and external review processes are critical to ensure all sources of error, including both statistical and systematic, are accounted for and that all results presented are factually accurate and precise to the best of our knowledge.
In short, UAPx, through multiple investigations, utilized an array of disparate sensor technology and captured data that, on initial analysis, may suggest the presence of UFO/UAP existence and activity. UAPx defines UFO/UAP as a technology not created by humans after all other known possibilities are eliminated to the best of our scientific abilities.
In 2022, UAPx will continue searching for technosignatures in both our skies and below our waters while attempting to identify their origins and dispensations. As our expeditions continue, UAPx will also launch fundraising programs so that future expeditions are not restricted in data release; ensuring the general public benefits from more immediate access to information. Currently, persons and organizations wishing to donate to UAPx may do so through the donation link of the UAPx website.
The following named individuals contributed to the collection and analysis of data throughout 2021 and are expressly thanked by UAPx for their dedication to scientific principles and the professional standards required to advance the conversation on UFOs and UAP:
Kevin Day, Gary Voorhis, Jason Turner, Michael W. Hall, JD, Dr. Kevin Knuth, Ph.D., Dr. Matthew M. Szydagis, Ph.D., Christopher Altman, and Jeremy D. McGowan.
