UFO News Article:
“U.S. Fighter Jets Are About To Get Infrared
Sensors That Could Be Huge For UFO Reporting”

(The Drive, U.S.A.)

The U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force will soon “field very capable infrared search and track systems (IRSTs),” Tyler Rogoway writes.

Wikipedia article: “Infrared search and track”:

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
“An infrared search and track (IRST) system (sometimes known as infrared sighting and tracking) is a method for detecting and tracking objects which give off infrared radiation (see Infrared signature) such as jet aircraft and helicopters.[1]

IRST is a generalized case of forward looking infrared (FLIR), i.e. from forward-looking to all-round situation awareness. Such systems are passive (thermographic camera), meaning they do not give out any radiation of their own, unlike radar. This gives them the advantage that they are difficult to detect.

However, because the atmosphere attenuates infrared to some extent (although not as much as visible light) and because adverse weather can attenuate it also (again, not as badly as visible systems), the range compared to a radar is limited. Within range, angular resolution is better than radar due to the shorter wavelength.

Early systems

The first use of an IRST system appears to be the F-101 Voodoo, F-102 Delta Dagger and F-106 Delta Dart interceptors. The F-106 had an early IRST mounting replaced in 1963 with a production retractable mount.[2] The IRST was also incorporated into the Vought F-8 Crusader (F-8E variant) which allowed passive tracking of heat emissions and was similar to the later Texas Instruments AAA-4 installed on early F-4 Phantoms.”

UFO Article & Radio Interview:
“Sean Cahill, Navy UFO Encounter
and Guadalupe Island Investigation”

By Alejandro Rojas, 16 July 2019
( Minds UFO Radio, Tempe, Arizona)

Sean Cahill was the Chief Master-at-Arms aboard the USS Princeton during the November 2004 USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group 11 UFO encounters, Rojas reports.

These UFO incidents occurred about a hundred miles south
west of San Diego, California. The main UFO incident occurred
on 14 November 2004 (Fravor and Slaight).

To my knowledge, eight U.S. Navy personnel, Sean Cahill, Kevin M. Day, David Fravor, P. J. Hughes, Omar Lara, Jim Slaight, Jason Turner and Gary Voorhis, have talked about the UFO incidents on the Internet.

Sean Cahill was the Chief Master-at-Arms aboard the USS Princeton.

Kevin M. Day was a radar operator aboard the USS Princeton.

David Fravor, who chased the UFO (resembled a white Tic Tac), was flying his F/A-18F Super Hornet jet fighter.

At the time of the UFO incident, Fravor was the commanding officer of the VFA-41 Black Aces, a U.S. Navy strike fighter squadron.

P. J. Hughes was an aviation technician aboard the USS Nimitz.

Omar Lara was a Flight Decker in Air Ops aboard the USS Nimitz.

Lieutenant Commander (later Commander) Jim Slaight was the pilot of the second F/A-18F Super Hornet jet fighter.

Jason Turner was a Petty Officer Third Class (in Supply) aboard the USS Princeton.

Gary Voorhis was a Fire Controlman Petty Officer Third Class aboard the USS Princeton.

A large number of UFOs were recorded on radar on and off for several days during the November 2004 U.S. Navy exercise, according to USS Princeton radar operator Kevin M. Day.

Gary Voorhis experienced that the unknown objects “zoomed around at ridiculous speeds and angles and trajectories,” and that “it (the UFOs) was moving faster than our radar could register.”
