Draft Congressional Report Language
May 17, 2019
TTS Academy's National Policy Advisor, Chris Mellon, has drafted proposed legislation for Congress to consider to ask for a report on making the Navy's UAP findings public.
Sec. xxx Report on Advanced Aerial Threats
A. REPORT REQUIRED. – Recent briefings provided to Congress by US military and intelligence personnel raise the possibility that one or more potential US adversaries may have achieved breakthroughs in aerospace engineering that could place US forces at risk. Unfortunately, there is no coherent process within the Executive Branch for collating or analyzing pertinent information on this topic notwithstanding the potential gravity of the issue. Moreover, requests for relevant data to enable Congress to better assess the significance of the issue have not been responded to in a satisfactory manner by DoD or the Intelligence Community. Therefore the Secretary of Defense and Director of National Intelligence shall jointly submit to the appropriate committees of Congress a report on the issue of Anomalous Airborne Threats.
B. ASSESSMENTS.- The report required under subsection (a) shall include the following:
1. A detailed analysis of NORAD’s unknown threat database from January 2004 to the present and correlation of that data with information collected by space-based infrared systems, human intelligence reporting; SIGINT, US Navy intelligence reporting on unidentified craft (both aerospace and undersea) and FBI data derived from investigations of intrusions over restricted US airspace.
2. Identification of a process and a senior official who can be held accountable in the future for ensuring the timely collection and centralized analysis of all Anomalous Airborne Threat reporting regardless of which service or agency acquired the information.
3. Identification of any incidents or patterns that indicate a potential adversary may have achieved breakthrough aerospace capabilities that significantly surpass US capabilities and could put US strategic or conventional forces at risk.
C. RECOMMENDATIONS – The report under subsection (a) above shall include any recommendation for increased collection or research and development deemed appropriate by the Secretary of Defense and Director of National Intelligence.
D. SUBMITTAL DATE- The report under subsection (a) shall be submitted not later than 18 months after enactment of this bill.
E. FORM- The report under subsection (a) may be submitted in either classified or unclassified form.
