This is a place to connect people with projects. The following is a list of our ongoing projects. Email us at SCU.Project.Director@gmail.com to find out how get involved.

 

USO characterization project:

Unidentified Submersible Objects (USOs) are a subset of Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena

(UAP) that are observed or measured traveling underwater or in a trans-medium fashion through

an air and water interface. Reports of this class of anomalous craft generally have an advantage

over UAP cases in that the most common types of false-positive UAP sightings like stars or

commercial aircraft are not widely present in USO datasets. This potentially opens a path to

improved verification and validation of case entries along with improved signal to noise in the

collection of reports. The USO characterization project is looking for applicants with interest in

compiling existing case reports on public, commercial, and government USO observations into a

database and then developing scoring techniques and analysis tools in order to better understand

and create scientifically testable hypotheses on this unique subset of anomalous reports. The

USO characterization project is looking for applicants with interest and/or experience with one

or more the following skills:

  • Database creation and analysis; Automatic Content Analysis (ACA)

  • Verification and validation approaches for observational reporting methods

  • Investigative researchers familiar with USO reports and case literature

  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning methods for database analysis

  • Quality scoring methods for sorting reports

  • Familiarity with spatial-temporal statistical analysis techniques or GIS

  • Python and Microsoft Excel familiarity helpful

  • Familiarity with science or technical writing

CFD modeling of UAP project:

 

Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena (UAP) are reported to travel through the surrounding

medium without any visible or diagnosed creation of a shock wave interaction. This absence of

shockwave is noted particularly in atmospheric UAP. The Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

modeling of UAP project is looking for qualified applicants to apply open source and/or

commercial CFD codes to the problem of modeling the interaction of hypothetical UAP and

USO propulsion methods with the surrounding media. Additionally, the project seeks to explain

claimed observations of how shock wave formation can be mitigated or completely avoided with

USO and UAP even while observed to be apparently traveling at high Mach numbers in

atmosphere. The CFD modeling of UAP project is looking for applicants with interest and/or

experience in one of the following skills:

  • Computational physics, mechanical engineering, or aeronautical engineering

  • Numerical approaches to computational fluid dynamics

  • Shock capturing methods and/or numerical approaches for Navier-Stokes simulation

  • Experience with CFD codes such as OpenFOAM and similar finite volume approaches

  • Analytic approaches to drag, viscosity, and shock-wave formation in gas and fluid systems

  • Familiarity with science or technical writing

MHD drive UAP propulsion modeling project:

The Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) approach to aerospace propulsion provides an alternative

hypothesis to other proposed Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena (UAP) propulsion methods

such as hypothetical gravity drive/warp drive propulsion approaches and could potentially

explain anomalous UAP measurements and observations. MHD drives utilize the Lorentz force

to push air, water, or other media around the craft in a controlled fashion and could potentially

explain reported UAP observations of what appears to be high Mach number flight but without

any shock wave formation or significant heating of the media surround the UAP. Shock

capturing numerical methods applied to these plasma-based propulsion techniques could recreate

UAP observations and measurements when compared to synthetic diagnostics of reported UAP

observations. This project is looking for applicants with interest and/or experience in one of the

following skills:

  • Physics, electrical engineering, and/or aerospace degree with a strong understanding of fluid plasma systems

  • Numerical approaches to fluid plasma approximations in water and atmosphere

  • Familiarity with high mach number flows in atmosphere and/or water with a strong background in fluid dynamics

  • Experience with existing open source or commercial plasma simulation codes

  • Familiarity with science or technical writing

Gravitational drive UAP propulsion modeling project:

 

The theory of general relativity has been shown by Alcubierre and others to support solutions

that may potentially describe gravity propulsion methods or so-called warp drives. This project

seeks to analytically and numerically model such gravity drives and apply the models to claimed

Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena (UAP) observational reports and data. The propulsion

through the manipulation of spacetime could potentially explain UAP observations such as lack

of observed exhaust propellent or other such thermal emissions in craft while performing

claimed accelerations up to 1000’s of times the Earth’s gravity while traveling through

atmosphere. This project will also study the possible signatures of space-time engineering as a

propulsion method and use existing numerical approaches to model aspects of gravity drives in

order to develop diagnostic methods to search for such craft and their emissions with a particular

focus on emitted radiation. This project is looking for applicants with interest and/or experience

in one of the following skills:

  • Physics, electrical Engineering, and/or aerospace degree with a strong understanding of theory of general relativity

  • Numerical approaches to general relativity and/or experience with existing general relativity simulation codes

  • Familiarity with existing general relativity literature on speculative gravitational/warp drive propulsion systems

  • Familiarity with science or technical writing

Radar detection of UAP signatures project:

 

Radar methods have been claimed to identify and track Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena

(UAP) since their inception and existing radar data sets on UAP potentially show anomalous

behaviors such as extreme accelerations and turns beyond what is thought possible with even

next generation aerospace platforms. This project seeks to numerically model and apply radar

methods to the search and diagnosis of UAP and in particular make inferences on the kinematics

of such craft in order to test for the idea of anomalous behavior as compared to known or

hypothesized future propulsion technologies. The many existing approaches to radar systems will

be explored in their application to the UAP diagnosis problem along with the development of

simulation techniques to develop radar diagnostics that differentiate between hypothesized UAP

propulsion methods such as gravity/warp drives and plasma MHD drives. By studying how

different radar approaches interact with different hypothesized UAP propulsion methods,

potential diagnostic approaches can be tested numerically in order to discover which approaches

might provide the best inferences on the kinematics and other desired UAP systems properties.

This project is looking for applicants with interest and/or experience in one of the following

skills:

  • Physics, electrical engineering, and/or math degree with a strong understanding of radar systems

  • Numerical approaches to simulating radar systems and/or experience with existing electromagnetic simulation software

  • Expertise with radar systems and familiarity with hypothesized UAP propulsion methods

  • Familiarity with science or technical writing
