Group set to hunt USS Nimitz 'Tic Tac' UFOs

A team of military veterans, scientists and entrepreneurs are aiming to track down 'unidentified aerial phenomena.'
Known as UAP eXpeditions, the new Oregon-based non-profit group is headed up by Kevin Day - a retired US Navy Chief Petty Officer and radar operator who served aboard one of the vessels in the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group at the time the Tic Tac-shaped UFOs were detected and pursued.

Day recalls tracking the objects along California's coastline using the USS Princeton's advanced radar system and believes that they may continue to operate on the same trajectory even to this day.

The group's stated goal is to "field a top-notch group of uber-experienced professionals providing the public service of field testing new UAP related technologies."

It will also use "classical observation techniques, by trained observers and scientists, while using the latest experimental technologies - in the right places and the right times."

This technology will include state-of-the-art cameras and experimental monitoring systems used to track and photograph the objects in an effort to learn as much as possible about them.
The team will include former NASA Ames Research Center scientist Dr. Kevin Knuth.

"The goal of the expedition is to give us some ground truth," he told Motherboard. "We aim to try to observe these objects directly, and record them using multiple imaging modalities."

According to Knuth, the project will have two phases - the first involving the use of satellite imaging to look for anomalous objects in the region and the second to essentially park a large boat in the water off the California coastline to directly track and observe the objects as they pass by.

Other team members will include the USS Princeton's former Chief Master-at-Arms Sean Cahill and UFO researcher Bruce Macabee.

Whether the group will actually find any trace of the objects however remains to be seen.

The Navy never said they were unidentified. You made that up. The Navy is never going to state what is in those unclassified videos. But they have the original high def versions and they know the equipment and they know what is in those videos. These low quality videos are in good enough resolution to allow various people to all come to the same conclusions: distant planes and probably a weather balloon.  It's not too hard for people with the appropriate backgrounds and the willingness to plot out the data to determine the contents of the videos.  To conclude, I have never stated or suggested ...

You are probably right. They probably brief the elected officials with information on why training to use new equipment has led to confusion. The number 1 job of any military should be to make sure that the warrior comes home - is safe. A warrior that cannot identify their target is a warrior in potential peril and may allow peril to reach other warriors.

They probably wouldn’t have time to. It takes time to understand. So they would be briefed on the important points:  Yes UAP, probably distant aircraft, sea bird against water, etc. It is IR footage sir. Etc. Not obviously exhibiting any unexplainable flight characteristics.  Probably: IGNORE DAY, he is a fool. I REPEAT: Do not listen to Day.  And don’t get sucked in by the sea level to 40,000 feet or whatever thing that @Earl.Of.Trumps always tries to claim. Or the raining UFO’s. They were quotes by an individual which are not supported in any other way and with no verifying evidence of.  Tim... [More]

Actually, to the members of Congress on certain committees we do. It helps translate the images and footage for them. Usually we provide a read ahead with the data as well. Never briefed a president though, so I can't say there.

Lol, that’s what I do when I cook something new: Google: ‘Perfect xxxxxxxx’ or ‘Best ever xxxxxxxx’.  I’m not sure what it has to do with the discussion, but now you’re speaking my language mate!

 You’re just twisting words, now. No one says “ Mr President here we have a UFO that isn’t because... “ I provided an excellent article link that specifically mentions improvements to radar technologies has made tracking and recording UFO’s that much more accurate. somehow I doubt the military would be using faulty intelligence to make an appointment to see the president.

When someone makes such public waves about what is regular footage, of course you would expect the president to be briefed.  We’re talking about Trump here. He needs to be hand fed this info. He’s a businessman but a dumbass otherwise.  It’s got nothing to do with the technology, there’s nothing exceptional in the data. Get over it.  What happened to the chicken enchiladas?

That is not what the article stated. The training mission after the upgrade turned up reports of UAPs. After that the number of UAP reports ended. This suggests that once the crew were familiar with their new gear they realized what they were seeing.
