The Stargate Project was the umbrella code name of one of several sub-projects established by the U.S. Federal Government to investigate claims of psychic phenomena with potential military and domestic applications, particularly “remote viewing”: the purported ability to psychically “see” events, sites, or information from a great distance.
These projects were active from the 1970s through 1995 and were primarily handled by the DIA and CIA. They followed up early psychic research done at The Stanford Research Institute (SRI), Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), The American Society for Psychical Research, and other psychical research labs.
After many years of fighting, the CIA compiled most of the research material gathered during this program, and compiled it into a multi-disc release stretching 89,901 pages of material.
Although many private companies have aimed to profit off of this publicly available material and charge for access, The Black Vault added the entire collection back in the early 2000s, available free to download below.
Please note: The CIA originally chose the WORST way to catalogue and archive this information – and they did so in thousands of multi-page .tif files.
In December of 2020, The Black Vault converted the original .tif scans into searchable .pdf documents. Both options are available below.
The CIA’s Stargate Collection – Full DVD Contents – 89,901 Pages
.zip File Containing 89,901 Pages within 12,301 Files [6.61GB] – Note: This is a large file. It is recommended you right click, and press “save as…” to your hard drive.
.pdf Collection – Browse Directory Tree – Note: This is a browsable directory for the same content of the .zip above. This was added for the ability to browse file by file rather than downloaded a large .zip file.
Original .tif Collection
The following is a list of links to the folders directly from the DVD. Originally, it was released on a collection of 15 CD-ROMs, but later converted to one DVD by the CIA. The files are multi-page .tif files, along with (generally unusable) .txt files of the “converted text.” The process used to convert the documents to text was very poor, and is largely useless. However, they are included for reference.
To view these documents, you will need a viewer that supports the multi-page .tif files (Meaning, one single .tif files can have 400 pages in it to read. If you use the wrong viewer, you’ll only see one page, if anything at all.)
To view them properly, I highly recommend a 100% free program called IRFAN View. Just follow the link, and click DOWNLOAD to install. Then, you can download any .tif file to your computer, and open it with this program.
The documents are catalogued as follows… simply click on the disc, and you’ll be taken to the index of records (It will open in a new window. To return to this page — simply close the pop up window):
