UFO Thread (Forum):
“UFOs and the NRO (National
Reconnaissance Office).”

1 January 2018
(, U.S.A.)

The question of whether the National Reconnaissance Office’s sophisticated satellites pick up UFOs has been debated by many UFO researchers from time to time.

Wikipedia article: “National Reconnaissance Office”:

Quote from the Wikipedia article:
“The National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) is a member of the United States Intelligence Community and an agency of the United States Department of Defense. NRO is considered, along with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), National Security Agency (NSA), Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), to be one of the ‘big five’ U.S. intelligence agencies.[2] The NRO is headquartered in unincorporated Fairfax County, Virginia,[3] 2 miles (3.2 km) south of Washington Dulles International Airport.

It designs, builds, and operates the reconnaissance satellites of theUnited States government, and provides satellite intelligence to several government agencies, particularly signals intelligence (SIGINT) to the NSA, imagery intelligence (IMINT) to the NGA, and measurement and signature intelligence (MASINT) to the DIA.[4]

The Director of the NRO reports to both the Director of National Intelligence and the Secretary of Defense[5] and serves as Assistant Secretary of the Air Force (Intelligence Space Technology). The NRO’s federal workforce consists primarily of Air Force, CIA, NGA, NSA, and Navy personnel.[6] A 1996 bipartisan commission report described the NRO as having by far the largest budget of any intelligence agency, and ‘virtually no federal workforce,’ accomplishing most of its work through ‘tens of thousands’ of defense contractor personnel.[7]”

“TTSA - a new filing with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission”

By Keith Basterfield, 15 July 2019
(UFOs – scientific research, Campbelltown,
New South Wales, Australia)

Quote from the article:
Offering circular

On 12 July 2019, the To The Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences [sic] (TTSA for short) undertook a further filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. As with all these filings, there are always a few new pieces of information.

New Director

"In May 2019 the company appointed J Christopher Mizer to serve on the company’s Board of Directors...Mr Mizer will be considered an independent contractor and will receive a monthly fee of $5,000 as well as 300,000 shares of the company's class A common stock..."

The current staffing is:

Thomas Delonge - President, Interim CEO.
James Semivan - Vice President, Operations.
Harold Puthoff - Vice President, Science and Technology.
Louis Tommasino - Treasurer, CFO.
Stephen Justice - Director of Advanced Programs and Technology, COO.
Kari Delonge - Chief Communications Officer.
Lisa Clifford - Secretary.
Luis Elizondo - Chief of Security and Special programs.

The Board of Directors is:

Thomas Delonge; James Semivan; Harold Puthoff; J Christopher Mizer. (‘There is one additional director to be appointed.’  ‘We are looking for a take over from T Delonge.’)

New member of the Advisory Board

There is one member of the TTSA Advisory Board, listed in the offering circular, who does not appear on the TTSA’s website list of their team. This is one, Chris Herndon. The offering circular provides the following information on Herndon:

‘Chris Herndon is a C-level Executive and Entrepreneur and currently serves as Chief Operating Officer of TechCentrics Inc. Previously he served for more than twenty years in the federal government, most recently as Deputy Assistant to the President and the Director of White House Information Technology...He began his career in telecommunications as a Department of the Navy civilian, where he supported organizations such as the National Reconnaissance Office, Office of Naval Research, Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the White House Communications Agency...’

My comment: Note that Herndon’s background was with the US Navy. This is interesting to me in that TTSA has been claiming success with influencing the US Navy to update its guidelines on reporting unidentified aircraft; and in briefing members/staffers in Congress. Note also, the reference to supporting agencies such as the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO)

The role of the NRO, according to their website is ‘the U.S. government agency in charge of designing, building, launching and maintaining America's intelligence satellites.’

Given this role, the question of whether or not its sophisticated sensor network picks up UAP has been debated from time to time in the UFO literature.”
