R. Gelfenstein, A House panel on Tuesday held the first public congressional hearing on unidentified flying objects in more than half a century, and senior Pentagon officials said the number of "unidentified aerial phenomena" (UAPs) reported by pilots and military personnel rose to about 400.

Deputy Defense Secretary for Intelligence and Security Ronald Moultrie and Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray testified before a House subcommittee about how the Defense Department organizes UAP reports after a congressionally commissioned report released last week found that most of the accidents analyzed remain unidentified. .

"Since the early 2000s, we've seen an increasing number of unauthorized or unidentified objects," said Scott Bray, deputy director of U.S. naval intelligence.

Rep. Andre Carson, D-Indiana and chairman of the House Intelligence Subcommittee on Counterintelligence, Counterterrorism and Counterproliferation, opened the hearing by saying that NAPs "constitute a potential threat to national security and should be treated accordingly."

The U.S. military and intelligence are working to determine for themselves whether these phenomena are related to potential threats against the country.

There is no doubt that the unidentified objects are real objects, whatever they are, as at least 80 of the 144 incidents were detected by multiple sensors, according to the report. "The UAP clearly represents a flight safety concern and may pose a challenge to U.S. national security," the report said.

The researchers were able to identify one of the 144 reports analyzed in their study of unidentified objects "such as a large balloon deflating." But the other 143 UFO reports from 2004 to 2021 remain a mystery.

In the public portion of the hearing, followed by a confidential session, Bray said the number of reported incidents had risen to about 400 since last year's report. He said the sightings are "frequent and continuous" and usually occur in military training areas or other designated airspace.

Lawmakers watched a video of a UAP observed by a Navy pilot in 2021, a "spherical object" "passing in front of the plane's cockpit."

Another video showed a triangular object floating off the west coast, seen through night vision goggles. An image of a similar object, also seen through night vision goggles, was captured on another coast years later. Bray said the UAP task force concluded that these triangular objects were "unmanned aerial systems" and that their triangular appearance was the result of light passing through night vision goggles before being recorded by a camera. reflection.

In recent years, the Pentagon has confirmed the authenticity of several videos and images showing objects being investigated by the UAP task force. Last year, the Department of Defense confirmed that Navy officers took three images released by MysteryWire and a video posted by a UFO director.

In November 2021, the Pentagon created the Airborne Object Management and Identification Synchronization Group (AOIMSG) to succeed the Navy's UAP task force, with the goal of better coordinating incident investigation and reporting.
