Geo-Magnetics (R.ST.)

MEMORANDUM TO THE CONTROLLER OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS:

For the past several years we have been engaged in the study

of various aspects of radio wave propagation. The vagaries of this

phenomenon have led us into the fields of aurora, cosmis radiation,

atmospheric radio-activity and geo-magnetism. In the case of

geo-magnetics our investigations have contributed little to our knowledge

of radio wave propagation as yet, but nevertheless have indicated several

avenues of investigation which may well be explored with profit. For

example, we are on the track of a means whereby the potential energy of

the earth's magnetic field may be abstracted and used.

On the basis of theoretical considerations a small and very

crude experimental unit was constructed approximately a year ago and

tested in our Standards Laboratory. The tests were essentially successful

in that sufficient energy was abstracted from the earth's field to operate

a voltmeter, approximately 50 milliwatts. Although this unit was far from

being self-sustaining, it nevertheless demonstrated the soundness of the

basic principles in a qualitative manner and provided useful data for the

design of a better unit.

The design has now been completed for a unit which should be

self-sustaining and in addition provide a small surplus of power. Such a

unit, in addition to functioning as a `pilot power plant' should be large

enough to permit the study of the various reaction forces which are

expected to develop.

We believe that we are on the track of something which may

well prove to be the introduction to a new technology. The existence of a

different technology is borne out by the investigations which are being

carried on at the present time in relation to flying saucers.

While in Washington attending the NARB Conference, two books

were released, one titled "Behind the Flying Saucer" by Frank Scully, and

the other "The Flying Saucers are Real" by Donald Keyhoe. Both books

dealt mostly with the sightings of unidentified objects and both books

claim that flying objects were of extra-terrestrial origin and might well

be space ships

from another planet. Scully claimed that the preliminary studies of one

saucer which fell into the hands of the United States Government indicated

that they operated on some hitherto unknown magnetic principles. It

appeared to me that our own work in geo-magnetics might well be the

linkage between our technology and the technology by which the saucers are

designed and operated. If it is assumed that our geo-magnetic

investigations are in the right direction, the theory of operation of the

saucers becomes quite straight forward, with all observed features

explained qualitatively and quantitatively.

I made discreet enquiries through the Canadian Embassy staff

in Washington who were able to obtain for me the following information:

a. The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United States

Government, rating higher even than the H-bomb.

b. Flying saucers exist.

c. Their modus operandi is unknown but concentrated effort is being made

by a small group headed by Doctor Vannevar Bush.

d. The entire matter is considered by the United States authorities to be

of tremendous significance.

I was further informed that the United States authorities are

investigating along quite a nubmer of lines which might possibly be

related to the saucers such as mental phenomena and I gather that they are

not doing too well since they indicated that if Canada is doing anything

at all in geo-magnetics they would welcome a discussion with suitably

accredited Canadians.

While I am not yet in a position to say that we have solved

even the first problems in geo-magnetic energy release, I feel that the

correlation between our basic theory and the available information on

saucers checks too closely to be more coincidence. It is my honest

opinion that we are on the right track and are fairly close to at least

some of the answers.

Mr. Wright, Defence Research Board liaison officer at the

Canadian Embassy in Washington, was extremely anxious for me to get in

touch with Doctor Solandt, Chairman of the Defence Research Board, to

discuss with him future investigations along the line geo-magnetic energy

release.

I do not feel that we have as yet sufficient data to place before Defence

Research Board which would enable a program to be initiated within that

organization, but I do feel that further research is necessary and I

would prefer to see it done within the frame work of our own organization

with, of course, full co-operation and exchange of information with other

interested bodies.

I discussed this matter fully with Doctor Solandt, Chairman

of Defence Research Board, on November 20th and placed before him as much

information as I have been able to gather to date. Doctor Solandt agreed

that work on geo-magnetic energy should go forward as rapidly as possible

and offered full co-operation of his Board in providing laboratory

facilities, acquisition of necessary items of equipment, and specialized

personnel for incidental work in the project. I indicated to Doctor

Solandt that we would prefer to keep the project within the Department of

Transport for the time being until we have obtained sufficient information

to permit a complete assessment of the value of the work.

It is therefore recommended that a PROJECT be set up within

the frame work of this Section to study this problem and that the work be

carried on a part time basis until such time as sufficient tangible

results can be seen to warrant more definitive action. Cost of the

program in its initial stages are expected to be less than a few hundred

dollars and can be carried by our Radio Standards Lab appropriation.

Attached hereto is a draft of terms of reference for such a

project which, if authorized, will enable us to proceed with this

research work within our own organization.

Dear Woody:

In your new function in the Unidentified Flying

Object Program, it is our understanding that your

4602nd people will do the "leg work" so to speak, and

furnish ATIC with its findings. For those types that

cannot be identified by your Squadron, ATIC will handle

from an exploratory point of view.

Many times the publicity connected with this

program has been somewhat embarrassing, in that we are

dealing with a subject, parts of which, are not ex-

plainable, and the public feeling is that we are holding

back information they should know about.

Due to a policy letter General Samford wrote this

Directorate a while back, this office has assumed motor-

ship of releases to the public. I would like to quote

the last sentence of General Samford's letter as it

pertains to publicity:

"The Directorate of Intelligence, USAF,

will resist consistently any idea that

a releasable story can be developed

about any intelligence activity, pro-

cess, or experience."

As you realize, there is a 10-20% area of unexplainable

objects, in this program. Also, for this area, we believe

General Samford's statement above applies, in that it deals

in an intelligence process performed by ATIC. Therefore,

we would like to offer you guidance in the publicity angle

as it pertains to your activity.

CONFIDENTIAL

We think it would be well for your 4602nd people

in the ZI, to discuss a particular sighting with the

public or press, anytime the object can be identified.

Meaning, if they can verify the object as a balloon,

aircraft, helicopter, etc., go ahead and inform interested

parties. However, for those times where the object is not

explainable, it would be well to advise your people to say

something on this order, "The information on this sighting

will be analyzed by the Air Technical Intelligence Center

at Dayton, Ohio", and leave it go at that. If your people

get into analyzing the 10-20% area to the public, every

news media across the country will pick up the story.

For your information, we have requested ATIC to sub-

mit to this office, a report that can be released to the

public. If you desire we could forward to your office a

copy of this report, that could be used by your agency,

for release purposes.

Sincerely yours,

however, you might be able to use this in your pre-

planning.

ATTN: AHRCCG Cleveland Hopkins Airport

Columbus Support Facility Cleveland, Ohio 44135

1. On 18 October 1973 at 2305 hours in the vicinity of Mansfield, Ohio,

Army Helicopter 68-15444 assigned to Cleveland USARFFAC encountered a near

midair collision with a unidentified flying object. Four crewmembers

assigned to the Cleveland USARFFAC for flying proficiency were on AFTP

status when this incident occurred. The flight crew assigned was CPT

Lawrence J. Coyne, Pilot in Command,1LT Arrigo Jozzi, Copilot, SSG Robert

Yanacsek, Crew Chief, SSG John Healey,Flight Medio,All the above personnel

are member of the 316th MED DET(HEL AMB). a tenant reserve unit of the

Cleveland USARFFAC.

2. The reported incident happened as follows: Army Helicopter 68-15444 was

returning from Columbus, Ohio to Cleveland, Ohio and at 2305 hours east,

south east of Mansfield Airport in the vicinity of Mansfield, Ohio while

flying at an altitude of 2500 feet and on a heading of 030 degrees, SSG

Yanacsek observed a red light on the east horizon,90 drgrees to the flight

path of the helicopter. Approximately 30 seconds later, SSG Yanacsek

indicated the object was converging on the helicopter at the same altitude

at a airspeed in excess of 600 knots and on a midair collision heading.

Cpt Coyne observed the converging object, took over the controls of the

aircraft and initiated a power descent from 2500 feet to 1700 feet to

avoid impact with the object. A radio call was initiated to Mansfield

Tower who acknowledged the helicopter and was asked by CPT Coyne if there

were any high performance aircraft flying in the vicinity of Mansfield

Airport however there was no response received from the tower. The crew

expected impact from the object instead, the object was observed to

hesistate momontarily over the helicopter and then slowly continued on a

westerly course accelerating at a high rate of speed, clear west of

Mansfield Airport then turn 45 degree heading to the Northwest.

Cpt Coyne indicated the altimeter read a 1000 fpm olimp and read 3500 feet

with the collective in the full down position. The aircraft was returned

to 2500 feet by CPT Coyne and flown back to Cleveland, Ohio. The flight

plan was closed and the FAA Flight Service Station notified of the

incident. The FSS told CPT Coyne to report the incident to the FAA GADO

office a Cleveland Hopkins Airport Mr. Porter, 83d USARCOM was notified of

the incident at 1530 hours on 19 Oct 73.

3. This report has been read and attested to by the crewmembers of the

aircraft with signatures acknowledgeing this report.

THAT THEY HAD SEEN STRANGE OBJECTS IN THE SKY. SOME REPORTED A KIND OF

BIRD-LIKE OBJECT WHILE OTHERS REPORTED A HELICOPTER WITH A LIGHT ON.

THERE WERE NO HELICOPTERS AIRBORNE AT THAT TIME.------------------------

------------------------- AFTER. HE TOLD THE CITIZEN IT WAS ONLY STARS

AND HAD TALKED TO MEHRABAD TOWER HE DECIDED TO LOOK FOR HIMSELF. HE

NOTICED AN OBJECT IN THE SKY SIMILAR TO A STAR BIGGER AND BRIGHTER. HE

DECIDED TO SCRAMBLE AN F-4 FROM SHAHROKHI AFB TO INVESTIGATE.

B. AT 0130 HRS ON THE 19TH THE F-4 TOOK OFF AND PROCEEDED TO A POINT

ABOUT 40 NM NORTH OF TEHRAN. DUE TO ITS BRILLIANCE THE OBJECT WAS

EASILY VISIBLE FROM 70 MILES AWAY. AS THE F-4 APPROACHED A RANGE OF 25

NH HE LOST ALL INSTRUMENTATION AND COMMUNICTIONS (UHF AND INTERCOM).

HE BROKE OFF THE INTERCEPT AND HEADED BACK TO SHAHROKHI. WHEN THE F-4

TURNED AWAY FROM THE OBJECT AND APPARENTLY WAS NO LONGER A THREAT TO IT

THE AIRCRAFT REGAINED ALL INSTRUMENTATION AND COMMUNICATIONS. AT 0140

HRS A SECOND F-4 WAS LAUNCHED. THE BACKSEATER ACQUIRED A RADAR LOCK ON

AT 27 NH. 12 O'CLOCK HIGH POSITION WITH THE VC (RATE OF CLOSURE) AT 150

NHPH. AS THE RANGE DECREASED TO 25 NH THE OBJECT MOVED AWAY AT A SPEED

THAT WAS VISIBLE ON THE RADAR SCOPE AND STAYED AT 25 NH.

C. THE SIZE OF THE RADAR RETURN WAS COMPARABLE TO THAT OF A 707 TANKER.

THE VISUAL SIZE OF THE OBJECT WAS DIFFICULT TO DISCERN BECAUSE OF ITS

INTENSE BRILLIANCE. THE LIGHT THAT IT GAVE OFF WAS THAT OF FLASHING

STROBE LIGHTS ARRANGED IN A RECTANGULAR PATTERN AND ALTERNATING BLUE-

GREEN, RED AND ORANGE IN COLOR. THE SEQUENCE OF THE LIGHTS WAS SO FAST

THAT ALL THE COLORS COULD BE SEEN AT ONCE. THE OBJECT AND THE PURSUING

F-4 CONTINUED ON A COURSE TO THE SOUTH OF TEHRAN WHEN ANOTHER BRIGHTLY

LIGHTED OBJECT, ESTIMATED TO BE ONE HALF TO ONE THIRD THE APPARENT SIZE OF

THE MOON, CAME OUT OF THE ORIGINAL OBJECT. THIS SECOND OBJECT HEADED

STRAIGHT TOWARD THE F-4 AT A VERY FAST RATE OF SPEED. THE PILOT ATTEMPTED

TO FIRE AN AIM-9 MISSILE AT THE OBJECT BUT AT THAT INSTANT HIS WEAPONS

CONTROL PANEL WENT OFF AND HE LOST ALL COMMUNICATIONS (UHF AND INTERPHONE)

AT THIS POINT THE PILOT INITIATED A TURN AND NEGATIVE G DIVE TO GET AWAY.

AS HE TURNED THE OBJEAZ FELL IN TRAIL AT WHAT APPEARED TO BE ABOUT 3-4 NH.

AS HE CONTINUED IN HIS TURN AWAY FROM THE PRIMARY OBJECT THE SECOND OBJECT

WENT TO THE INSIDE OF HIS TURN THEN RETURNED TO THE PRIMARY OBJECT FOR A

PERFECT REJOIN.

D. SHORTLY AFTER THE SECOND OBJECT JOINED UP WITH THE PRIMARY OBJECT

ANOTHER OBJECT APPEARED TO COME OUT OF THE

OTHER SIDE OF THE PRIMARY OBJECT GOING STRAIGHT DOWN. AT A GREAT RATE OF

SPEED. THE F-4 CREW HAD REGAINED COMMUNICATIONS AND THE WEAPONS CONTROL

PANEL AND WATCHED THE OBJECT APPROACH THE GROUND ANTICIPATING A LARGE

EXPLOSION. THIS OBJECT APPEARED TO COME TO REST GENTLY ON THE EARCH AND

CAST A VERY BRIGHT LIGHT OVER AN AREA OF ABOUT 2-3 KILOMETERS.

THE CREW DESCENDED FROM THEIR ALTITUDE OF 26H TO 15H AND CONTINUED TO

OBSERVE AND MARK THE OBJECT'S POSITION. THEY HAD SOME DIFFICULTY IN

ADJUSTING THEIR NIGHT VISIBILITY FOR LANDING SO AFTER ORBITING MEHRABAD

A FEW TIMES THEY WENT OUT FOR A STRAIGHT IN LANDING. THERE WAS A LOT OF

INTERFERENCE ON THE UHF AND EACH TIME THEY PASSED THROUGH A MAG. BEARING

OF 150 DEGREE FROM EHRABAD THEY LOST THEIR COMMUNICATIONS (UHF AND

INTERPHONE) AND THE INS FLUCTUATED FROM 30 DEGREES - 50 DEGREES. THE ONE

CIVIL AIRLINER THAT WAS APPROACHING MEHRABAD DURING THIS SAME TIME

EXPERIENCED COMMUNICATIONS FAILURE IN THE SAME VICINITY (KILO ZULU) BUT

DID NOT REPORT SEEING ANYTHING. WHILE THE F-4 WAS ON A LONG FINAL

APPROACH THE CREW NOTICED ANOTHER CYLINDER SHAPED OBJECT (ABOUT THE SIZE

OF A T-BIRD AT 10M) WITH BRIGHT STEADY LIGHTS ON EACH END AND A FLASHER

IN THE MIDDLE. WHEN QUERIED THE TOWER STATED THERE WAS NO OTHER KNOWN

TRAFFIC IN THE AREA. DURING THE TIME THAT THE OBJECT PASSED OVER THE

F-4 THE TOWER DID NOT HAVE A VISUAL ON IT BUT PICKED IT UP AFTER THE

PILOT TOLD THEM TO LOOK BETWEEN THE MOUNTAINS AND THE REFINERY.

E. DURING DAYLIGHT THE F-4 CREW WAS TAKEN OUT TO THE AREA IN A

HELICOPTER WHERE THE OBJECT APPARENTLY HAD LANDED. NOTHING WAS NOTICED

AT THE SPOT WHERE THEY THOUGHT THE OBJECT LANDED (A DRY LAKE BED) BUT

AS THEY CIRCLED OFF TO THE WEST OF THE AREA THEY PICKED UP A VERY

NOTICEABLE BEEPER SIGNAL. AT THE POINT WHERE THE RETURN WAS THE

LOUDEST WAS A SMALL HOUSE WITH A GARDEN. THEY LANDED AND ASKED THE

PEOPLE WITHIN IF THEY HAD NOTICED ANYTHING STRANGE LAST NIGHT. THE

PEOPLE TALKED ABOUT A LOUD NOISE AND A VERY BRIGHT LIGHT LIKE

LIGHTNING. THE AIRCRAFT AND AREA WHERE THE OBJECT IS BELIEVED TO HAVE

LANDED ARE BEING CHECKED FOR POSSIBLE RADIATION ----------------------
