Nick Pope: ET could disguise drones as birds or insects

The former MoD UFO investigator has suggested that alien monitoring devices could be disguised as common animals.
One of the most prominent figures in the field of UFO research, Nick Pope famously worked for the British Ministry of Defense from 1991 to 1994 during which time he was tasked with investigating reports of unidentified flying objects to determine whether or not they posed a risk to national security.

Speaking to The Mirror recently, Pope put forward the suggestion that if an advanced extraterrestrial race wanted to monitor our activities here on Earth without raising suspicion, all it would need to do is disguise its monitoring devices as common types of animals that nobody would look twice at.

"If aliens want to hack into and control a living organism, or construct a drone that's a perfect mimic, it would be best to choose something ordinary and ubiquitous, like a seagull or a housefly," he said.

"Something you wouldn't normally pay much attention to, perhaps."
"But all the time, it would be spying on us, recording everything, and sending information about us back to the alien homeworld."

While the idea might sound far fetched, it does at least have some merit - it is not unreasonable to imagine that an alien race may be able to perfectly replicate the appearance and behaviors of birds, for instance, especially given the level of technology that such a civilization may have access to.

There are even examples of human-made robots designed to look and behave like insects.

"The military and the intelligence agencies have things that look like they come out of a sci-fi movie or a James Bond film," said Pope.

"There are some real-life Qs out there, for sure, so just imagine what an alien Q could do!"

Aliens could also disguise a drone as Nick Pope.  and use it to deflect attention from the fact that their real spy drones are disguised as cats    Or, possibly, house plants.  This make much more sense ......

Oh crap! How am I going to tell my daughter that her cat is actually an ET spy drone?    Cheers, Badeskov

I think Nick is losing it......kinda like the Disclosure guy a number of years ago, started out ok, then really seemed to go off the tracks....

I thought the government was already doing this?

To be honest, Nick Pope was only a paid 'UFOlogist' at the MoD for three years - a bit like Stanton Friedman, who was a UFOlogist for far longer than an actual physicist.

No, he is a knob. My brother used to work with him at the M.O.D.  He worked for M.O.D. plod (police) & got interested in UFOs when The X-Files became popular, convinced himself he was Britains answer to Fox Mulder & started telling people he was some sort of keeper of the M.O.D. UFO files. Some people fell for it, he started on the circuit & made more from doing that than as a MOD plod clerk .....the rest as they say is history, but in reality he knows as much about this stuff as you & I.
