Pentagon will acquire a new squad of UFO recognition
The US Department of Defense has rebranded its already existing Unidentified Flying Object Recognition and Identification Unit, also known as the US Navy's Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force.
From now on, the department will be called the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group (AOIMSG)
“The AOIMSG will synchronize efforts across the Department and the broader U.S. government to detect, identify and attribute objects of interests in Special Use Airspace (SUA), and to assess and mitigate any associated threats to safety of flight and national security. To provide oversight of the AOIMSG, the Deputy Secretary also directed the USD(I&S) to lead an Airborne Object Identification and Management Executive Council (AOIMEXEC) to be comprised of DoD and Intelligence Community membership, and to offer a venue for U.S. government interagency representation,” the US Department of Defense said in the press release.
US @DeptofDefense establishes unpronounceable acronym to investigate UAPs. AOIMSG will synchronise detection, identification of ‘objects of interests in Special Use Airspace (SUA)’, and assess threats to safety of flight and national security. https://t.co/uIBRh4LbIq— Ross Coulthart (@rosscoulthart) November 24, 2021
This decision is the result of planning efforts and collaboration conducted by OUSD(I&S) and other DoD elements at the direction of Deputy Secretary Hicks, to address the challenges associated with assessing UAP occurring on or near DOD training ranges and installations highlighted in the DNI preliminary assessment report submitted to Congress in June 2021.
