Department of Defense Launches Secure Reporting Mechanism on the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office Website

Today, consistent with Section 1673 National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023, the department launched the second phase of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office’s secure mechanism for authorized reporting of unidentified anomalous phenomena on the website.

This phase of the secure reporting mechanism is for current or former U.S. government employees, service members, or contractors with direct knowledge of alleged U.S. government programs or activities related to UAP dating back to 1945 to contact AARO to voluntarily submit a report.  These reports will be used to inform AARO’s congressionally directed Historical Record Report, due to Congress by June 2024, and its investigations into alleged U.S. government UAP programs.
