To the Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences, the UFO hunting company created by punk band Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge, has just inked a deal with the U.S. Army to study UFO material to enhance Army ground vehicles.
In a press release, To the Stars Academy said under the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement of CRADA, the company and the U.S. Army's Combat Capabilities Development Command will use the company's material and technology to develop enhanced capabilities for Army ground vehicles.
TTSA said it has expertise in material science, space-time metric engineering, quantum physics, beamed energy propulsion and active camouflage, which could have the potential to enhance the survivability and effectiveness of Army ground vehicles.
TTSA claimed to find UFO material back in July
In July TTSA garnered a lot of attention when it announced it acquired several pieces of metamaterials each of which has different elements of potential UFOs. The company said at the time the assets are reportedly from an advanced aerospace vehicle of unknown origin.
“The structure and composition of these materials are not from any known existing military or commercial application,” said Steve Justice, current COO of To The Stars Academy and former head of Advanced Systems at Lockheed Martin's "Skunk Works" in a press release at the time. “They've been collected from sources with varying levels of chain-of-custody documentation, so we are focusing on verifiable facts and working to develop independent scientific proof of the materials' properties and attributes. In some cases, the manufacturing technology required to fabricate the material is only now becoming available, but the material has been in documented possession since the mid-1990's."
TTSA to share its discoveries with the Army
TTSA said it will share its discoveries with the Ground Vehicle System Center (GVSC) and Ground Vehicle Survivability and Protection (GVSP) and that the U.S. Army will provide the labs, expertise, and support to use the technologies for its own applications. “Our partnership with TTSA serves as an exciting, non-traditional source for novel materials and transformational technologies to enhance our military ground system capabilities,” said Dr. Joseph Cannon of U.S. Army Futures Command said in the press release.
Meanwhile, Justice of TTSA said by teaming up with the Army it brings additional "critically important expertise" that's necessary to advance technology. "While the Army has specific military performance interests in the research, much of the work is expected to have dual-use application in support of TTSA’s path to commercialization and public benefit mission,” he said.
