Marik Von Rennenkampff maintains that it's important for the US to investigate recent pilot accounts of UFOs.
Back in 2017 and 2018, three videos were published by the New York Times showing US Navy pilots attempting to chase down unidentified, high-altitude objects traveling at hypersonic speeds.
The objects exhibited no apparent wings, markings or visible means of propulsion.
Since then, the question over what type of exotic vehicles may be invading US airspace has become a significant concern. Several prominent politicians including US President Donald Trump have received special briefings and US Navy officials have admitted that these objects are genuinely unidentified.
Writing in an op-ed for The Hill
this week, defense analyst Marik Von Rennenkampff has urged the US government to make more of an effort to officially investigate UFO sightings by Navy pilots.
It is particularly vital, he argues, for the US to get to the bottom of this mystery.
"The national security implications of getting to the bottom of these incidents are beyond obvious," he wrote. "In addition to posing a serious collision risk, determining the nature of the objects - whether benign, easily explainable phenomena or potentially threatening - is of critical importance."
Rennenkampff has also warned of the potential consequences should another country acquire such technology before the United States.
"Given the anti-democratic and authoritarian inclinations of some major world powers, it is imperative that such capabilities fall into the 'right' (i.e., democratic) hands," he wrote.
