UFO Article (Blog):
“NIDS and ‘triangular’ UAP”

Quote from the article:

I am continuing my exploration of material which appeared on the former website of the now defunct National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS) founded by Las Vegas businessman Robert T Bigelow, in 1995 and ceasing in 2004. Most researchers that I know, are completely unaware of this resource.


One of the two foci of NIDS was research into the UFO phenomenon. There was an upsurge in the number of reports of ‘triangular’ shaped objects in the 1990’s. Thus it was reasonable that NIDS would take a look into this aspect of the phenomenon.”

“Yes, indeed, BAASS’ AAWSAP
contract did, in part, investigate UAP”

Quote from the article:

In a blog post dated 12 December 2019, I presented a transcript of an interview dated 28 September 2008, between Las Vegas journalist George Knapp, and Las Vegas businessman Robert T Bigelow. During that interview, Bigelow announced the launch of Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS) and outlined the mission for BAASS.

Did BAASS work on UAP as well?

1. During the period April 2009 to January 2010 we know that MUFON via its STAR group were indeed sending UAP reports to BAASS.

2. The open literature, reports that BAASS employee Gary Hernandez was investigating UAP reports.

3. The US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) were referring UAP reports to BASS during the period 2009 to 2012.

4. A BAASS Investigator/Security Officer wrote that he ‘Investigated paranormal activity.’ Plus two security officers employed by BAASS in September 2010, did tours of duty at Robert Bigelow’s NE Utah range, where a range of paranormal activity was described by these two employees.

5. One August 2009 employee in his list of duties, speaks of ‘Perform field measurements collecting data regarding ionizing radiation as well as performing chemical/metal/soil and spectrum analysis across the United States...’

This work could be argued to be that of researching physical trace evidence associated with UAP.

6. Lastly, but most importantly, former Senator Harry Reid, who instigated the AATIP/AAWSAP says that AATIP studied UFOs. In a tweet dated 8 December 2019, Las Vegas journalist George Knapp cited former Senator Harry Reid as recently stating:

‘AATIP was my program. One can say whatever, but the truth is it was for only one purpose - to study UFOs.’

7. Based on the above, I can see two possibilities. Either BAASS was simultaneously running with the AAWSAP contract, and also conducting its own UAP investigations; or the AAWSAP work did indeed involve researching UAP. On the basis of what I have learned, I suggest that the latter is true, which is contrary to recent statements from Pentagon spokesperson Susan L Gough.”
