SCU Submits Questions for House Committee Hearings on UAP

Updated: Oct 26, 2022




SCU Proposes Questions To The Honorable Ronald S. Moultrie, Under Secretary of

Defense for Intelligence Security (USDI&S), and Scott W. Bray, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence

May 3 – The Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU), a fact-driven organization of scientists, academics, and research professionals dedicated to exploring anomalous phenomena known around the world as UAPs, welcomes the US House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence's Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation Subcommittee's (C3) decision to hold the first Congressional hearing on this subject in more than 50 years.

"C3 Subcommittee Chairman Andre Carson (D-IN) is to be commended for treating the UAP issue with the seriousness it deserves," said Rich Hoffman, SCU executive board member. "But any hearing on UAP must include piercing questions for the hearing's participants to answer. It is time for the public to learn more about these anomalous events, and it is our great hope the hearing tomorrow will be the first of many."

The SCU recommends the Members of C3 address the following questions to Undersecretary Ron Moultrie and Deputy Director Scott Bray:

  1. SCU defines the term UAP to include transmedium phenomena that traverse the air, space, and or water because historical observations contain all three domains. Reportedly, geospatial and radar/space-based surveillance platforms show the trajectory of objects moving into and out of Earth's atmosphere, and ships have tracked objects moving rapidly underwater. Will the Department of Defense release information on this transmedium behavior to the public? What are the tools that DoD uses to detect signatures of transmedium travel? What are the organizations that administer executive agency over the use of these tools? Are the heads of these agencies being called to testify?

  2. SCU seeks UAP reports and data to help all scientists better understand the phenomena. Does Congress need to enact legislation to ensure that non-disclosure agreements unrelated to classification systems are not restricting scientific access to UAP data in violation of Presidential Executive Orders 13556, 13526, and 12829?

  3. SCU is aware of extensive documentation from FOIA sources and retired USAF officers regarding UAP incidents at or near USAF ICBM and SAC nuclear weapons facilities. UAPs are reportedly capable of shutting off or turning on US and foreign nuclear missile silos. What are the criteria by which DoD assesses the possible threat UAP poses to US National Security? What are the common signatures DoD has observed or has detected that UAP exhibits in the vicinity of the US or foreign nuclear missile silos? Will the Department of Defense confirm or deny that these are among the risks to national security posed by UAP? Does the USAF possess any information indicating that unidentified aerospace objects have ever interfered with US nuclear command and control capabilities? Is there any component of this issue that falls under the cognizance of the Department of Energy or the Atomic Energy Act?

  4. SCU conducted a detailed forensic analysis of the 2004 Nimitz UAP incident, including the USS Princeton. They found evidence of anomalous kinematics, concluding that reported data was missing that would have solidified the findings. What knowledge does the USAF have regarding the location or disposition of the USS Princeton radar data from its UAP encounters in 2004? Does the Air Force or Navy know the whereabouts of the missing USS Princeton deck logs from November 2004, and who or what person, entity, organization, or equity landed on the USS Princeton to acquire said logs? Link to our report:

  5. Was the information derived from the analysis of the 2004 USS Nimitz UAP event evaluated and refined into an intelligence product that was fused with other intelligence disciplines and made available to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI), and the President's Intelligence Advisory Board?

  6. Several prominent scientists claim to be in possession of materials that might definitively answer whether a non-human civilization has found Earth. Does the DoD have such materials? What processes are in place to ensure elected representatives, including the President, HPSCI, SSCI, SECDEF, and the DNI, are informed of such information? If such processes are not in place, what is the plan to codify them in legislation? FOLLOW ON: In this regard, what is the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) role, and what is the perspective of integrating IARPA into the process?

  7. What guidance has been provided to the DoD spokesperson as to how they handle inquiries from the academic sector about UAP/UFO?

  8. Ionizing radiation is a known health hazard and is associated with UAP. Does the Department of Defense consider this among the risks to national security and aviation safety?

  9. Has the National Security Council nominated the detection, identification, collection, processing, analysis, and production of data and information on UAP to the National Intelligence Priorities Framework (NIPF)? If so, has the national security advisor provided an opinion, and has the President approved the nomination?

  10. Will tasking be conducted using standard strategic warning (Intentions/Indicator) methodology? What structured analytic techniques is the USIC planning to use to address the UAP question if nominated to the NIPF?

  11. What is the plan and timeline to disclose results, products, and analysis processes on the UAP data to the public, including collection, analysis, products, results, and analysis procedures from each of the DoD Service Branches?

  12. Which member of the USIC will have overarching coordinating authority to direct the collection, processing, and analysis mission on UAP? Will the FBI, CIA, NRO, and Intelligence components of the US Navy be called to fully testify and provide an oral history under oath of all information related to the US government's activities and any associated activities involving the defense industrial base?


The Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU) promotes and encourages the rigorous scientific examination of Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena (UAP), commonly known as Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). SCU comprises scientists, former military, law enforcement officials, and other professionals, utilizing scientific principles, methodologies, and practices to advance the study of UAP observed and reported around the globe.
