Paris (France) – In France, the “L’Association Aéronautique et Astronautique de France” is one of the most respected aerospace research companies. Within the so called 3AF there has also been the SIGMA2 commission which has taken on the scientific investigations of UFO phenomena and published a first research report on its work as early as 2010. Now they published another very detailed SIGMA2 progress report of 365 pages.
The SIGMA2 Commission writes on its website: “These phenomena are by no means new and sightings in the air and from the ground have been reported and documented for centuries. The first wave of sightings occurred in France in the early 1950s. In 1977 the GEIPAN, (a state UFO investigation body) was founded, which is subordinate to the (French space agency) CNES. Depending on the case, these phenomena reveal different properties and sometimes exert mechanical effects on the soil that cannot be explained with currently known physics. Although counterfeits do exist, of course, the reality of these phenomena is undeniable. Depending on the case, a natural or artificial origin is still an open question due to poorly understood atmospheric, ionospheric and / or electromagnetic phenomena, but also to the unpredictable electromagnetic and especially kinematic behavior. This strange behavior contradicts the laws of physics, especially mechanics, which also poses a problem for our means of observation to make systematic records about it. “
Already written in their 2010 report, the SIGMA scientists, citing the quasi-official French UFO study, the COMETA report from 1999, which was written by a group of high-ranking retired French military and intelligence officials, came to the conclusion that that “UFOs are real and likely of extraterrestrial origin”.
To this end, the SIGMA commission also exchanged views with representatives of many other government, military and secret service organizations from France who already had experience with the UFO phenomenon. This included the gendarmerie, which has been collecting UFO reports systematically since the 1960s; the General Secretariat of the National Defense Council; the air force; a French secret service; the Directorate-General for External Security, which previously admitted through an “authorized source” that UFOs have been monitored since the early 1960s. “This strange behavior contradicts the laws of physics, especially mechanics, which is a problem for our means of observation to make systematic records.”
3AF / Sigma2 emphasizes that the results presented in the new report are “not a simple comment on studies that have already been carried out elsewhere”. Rather, they are the SIGMA2 experts’ own elaborations. The assessment of the data, facts and their own conclusions presented in the report is left to the readers, but the authors once again have the answer to the question of the reality of an exotic UFO phenomenon: Yes, there is such a phenomenon and can be proven using data.
This is just one example of many governments disclosure efforts in recent years and we are curious to see what comes next.
