The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) DIRD Report Research

The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) DIRD Report Research

Investigation Status: Ongoing – Last Updated 2/1/2019

This page will continue to be updated as additional DIRD reports are released. Keep checking back as this page morphs throughout the next couple weeks, months and maybe even years. Make sure you also check out the To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, Tom Delonge, and the Secret DoD UFO Research Program page for additional information and my investigation into the AATIP program as a whole.

Background

In July of 2018, Mr. George Knapp released a leaked version of the 38 reports created under The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) or The Aerospace Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) (exact name in dispute). On this, were various, highly scientific and technical reports, by various authors, regarding fusion, advanced propulsion etc. The exact role they played in the AATIP program, is unclear.

On January 16, 2019, Mr. Nick Pope, formerly of the U.K.’s Ministry of Defence (MOD) who ran the “UFO Desk” there, received a similar list of reports, but from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)’s Office of Corporate Communications. At the same time, multiple FOIA requesters, including myself, were sent via postal mail, responses to various requests of the same.

This was my release, sent to me by the DIA, dated January 16, 2019:

There is some confusion on why the lists are different. It is believed that possibly, the “leaked” version released by Mr. Knapp were reports created under the “Advanced Aerospace Weapons Systems Application Program” (AAWSAP) and the one released officially by the DIA is from AATIP.  However, in some written statements by the Pentagon, AAWSAP is the same AATIP.  I have often floated the idea that AAWSAP was an umbrella project and AATIP was a sub-project underneath it. Nothing has been officially confirmed on the exact status of that.

Over the years, I spent countless hours requesting and collecting various scientific reports and research programs. I have taken time to reference my own archive, along with various resources, to cross reference the list of 38 reports to see what is available publicly, what is related and what is of greater interest to get released, as there is nothing in the public domain.

Below, you will find that research. The original numbered list are the AATIP reports. Below that, you will find additional information about the report, author, university, company etc. where available.

 Thermonuclear Micro-Bomb Rocket Propulsion [98 Pages, 4.7MB]  – The report describes an advanced nuclear rocket propulsion system based on a chain of exploding thermonuclear micro-bombs ignited in front of a concave magnetic reflector open at one side. It is shown that for such a propulsion system to work with ideally high efficiency the following conditions have to be satisfied: the thermonuclear material for the micro-bombs has to be a stoichiometric mixture of He3 and D in solid or liquid form, and the ignition of the micro-bombs has to be accomplished by an intense relativistic electron beam.

Additional Information about the Author

Dr. Paul Czysz is a Professor of Aeronautical Engineering at Parks College in St. Louis. He spent 8 years in the Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, and another 30 years working for McDonnell Douglas in the field of exotic technologies. While at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, he was involved in tracking UFOs over Missouri, Ohio and Michigan. These UFOs were seen by many people: military, local police, and civilians, and were clocked at speeds around 20,000 MPH as they performed unusual silent maneuvers. Dr Czysz spent more than half his career at McDonnell-Douglas working on classified and compartmentalized projects, and testifies to the processes involved in maintaining secrecy on these projects. He warns against the human tendency to make every new technology into a weapon, pointing out that our weaponization of space does not address the threat of earth terrorists, and the idea of using these weapons against extraterrestrial targets would be suicidal.

He and his colleagues were the first to experimentally implementing the concept of the Infrared Perfect Lens based on polaritonic materials (SiC), and the first to experimentally investigate optical properties of the so-called hyperbolic metamaterials that enable the propagation of sub-diffraction light waves. His most recent work deals with the applications of metamaterials and plasmonics to infrared light generation and harvesting, concentrated solar energy and thermo-photovoltaic systems, biosensing and molecular fingerprinting of proteins and live cells using metamaterial arrays, optical imaging with sub-diffraction resolution using nanoparticle labels, photonic topological insulators, graphene-based metamaterials, and electron beam-driven metamaterials. He is particularly interested in the integration of metamaterials and metasurfaces with various applications-specific platforms such as microfluidics, and in developing metamaterials-inspired devices that utilize non-traditional active, nonlinear, and low-loss materials such as graphene, quantum dots, silicon, and silicon carbide. Prof. Shvets is also a leader in the fields of advanced accelerator science and theoretical laser-plasma interactions, with specific emphasis on laser-plasma accelerators. His signature accomplishments include the inventions of the parametric laser compression in plasmas, of the electron self-injection into evolving plasma “bubbles”, and of the synergistic laser-wakefield and direct-laser acceleration in the plasma bubble regime.”

 Experimental demonstration of the microscopic origin of circular dichroism in two-dimensional metamaterials [8 Pages, 2MB] – Optical activity and circular dichroism are fascinating physical phenomena originating from the interaction of light with chiral molecules or other nano objects lacking mirror symmetries in three-dimensional (3D) space. While chiral optical properties are weak in most of naturally occurring materials, they can be engineered and significantly enhanced in synthetic optical media known as chiral metamaterials, where the spatial symmetry of their building blocks is broken on a nanoscale. Although originally discovered in 3D structures, circular dichroism can also emerge in a two-dimensional (2D) metasurface. The origin of the resulting circular dichroism is rather subtle, and is related to non-radiative (Ohmic) dissipation of the constituent metamolecules. Because such dissipation occurs on a nanoscale, this effect has never been experimentally probed and visualized. Using a suite of recently developed nanoscale-measurement tools, we establish that the circular dichroism in a nanostructured metasurface occurs due to handedness-dependent Ohmic heating.

 Weakly Ionized Plasmas and MHD for Enhanced Performance of Hypersonic Vehicles – Symposium on Energy Conversion Fundamentals Istanbul, Turkey, 21-25 June 2004 [37 Pages, 4.8MB] – Aerospace Applications of Weakly Ionized Plasmas: * Power generation using MHD * Use of power to control aerodynamics and propulsion: (1) Surface plasmas for separation and turbulent transition control (virtual shapes) (2) Virtual shapes created by off-body energy addition for drag reduction, steering, shock control, flow turning (3) Plasma-assisted combustion. * Power extraction from one region and its use in another region (MHD bypass) * Dual-use MHD devices (both power generation and flow control): (1) Forces created by magnetic and electric fields acting on charged particles (transferred to neutral gas by collisions) (2) Ionization level per se is not critical if plasmas are used as a means of delivering energy to the flow (3) Ionization is critical in MHD power generation and flow control, and in cold-plasma generation of radicals (4) At high T (reentry, scramjet combustor) — thermal ionization with alkali seed (5) At low T, artificial ionization is needed, and the ionization cost determines design and performance (6) Similar to ionization, cold plasma generation of chemically active species for combustion can have considerable energy cost (7) Both energy addition and extraction result in flow heating and losses of total pressure and (if in propulsion flowpath) thrust

 Studies of Plasmas and MHD Interactions in Supersonic Flows [8 Pages, 2.1MB] – Work this past year has involved theoretical and experimental efforts directed towards exploiting the use of MHD and plasmas for boundary layer control, the development of a new concept for power extraction from high temperature surfaces, and the development of a new diagnostic for plasmas and high-speed flows. Two control strategies are being examined: the snow-plow arc and the dielectric barrier discharge. The snowplow arc uses a constricted surface discharge which is accelerated by a magnetic field and pushes the air with it. The dielectric barrier discharge uses an electric field gradient along the surface that couples to the flow. Theoretical work has focused on the optimization of both of these concepts for efficient control of boundary layers in high speed flow and on interactions with AFRL on model development and validation. The power extraction concept involves the development of a new pulse sustained thermionic flatpanel for extracting power from hot surfaces. The new diagnostic is Radar REMPI, which is based on scattering of microwave radiation from a small laser-induced ionization region in a flowing gas, combusting zone, or plasma. It has the potential for local temperature, velocity, species, and electron density measurements.
