AARO launches new internal reporting tool for UFO sightings

Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick announced the launch of the new tool during an off-camera 'media roundtable' event earlier this week.
Dr. Kirkpatrick, who heads up the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, is one of many officials who have called for more openness in the reporting and investigation of UFOs in recent years.

Even though the new reporting tool is designed to make it easier than ever to submit details of such sightings, it is not available to the general public (or in fact to anyone outside of a small circle).

According to Kirkpatrick, the tool will be restricted to "current or former U.S. government employees, service members, or contractors with direct knowledge of alleged U.S. government programs or activities related to UAP dating back to 1945."

"These reports will be used to inform AARO's congressionally directed Historical Record Report and investigations into alleged U.S. government UAP programs, due to Congress in June 2024," he said.
"Please come forward using this new secure reporting mechanism. We want to hear from you."

Kirkpatrick also hinted at additional reporting systems coming in the near future.

"We understand that members of the public are also interested in reporting UAP sightings to AARO," he said. "We are exploring methods for how the public can do so in the forthcoming third phase of the secure reporting mechanism, but I don't have anything to announce about that today."
