The Department of Defense has launched a website for the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office. The website aims to provide the public with information on the efforts of AARO to understand and resolve unidentified anomalous phenomena.
The website regularly updates photos and videos of resolved UAP cases as they are declassified and approved for public release. It also includes reporting trends, a frequently asked questions section, and links to official reports, transcripts, press releases, and other resources that the public may find useful, such as applicable statutes and aircraft, balloon, and satellite tracking sites.
The website (https://www.aaro.mil/) contains a message from Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, the director of AARO, and brief descriptions of the office’s mission and vision. The site features several videos that show military encounters with UAP that are yet to be resolved. Additionally, the website provides a report on UAP reporting trends, which includes information on the typical characteristics, altitudes, and hotspots of these objects.
Starting this fall, AARO will launch a reporting tool on their website for current and former U.S. government employees, service members, or contractors to contact AARO directly to make a report. AARO is conducting final reviews to ensure the reporting mechanism complies with various laws and acts. In the meantime, members of the general public are encouraged to continue to use existing reporting mechanisms available to them through their organizations, while U.S. service members, government employees, and civil aviators can make use of the interim reporting mechanisms.
In 2021, the AARO was created as the primary federal agency responsible for UAP efforts through the annual defense policy bill that Congress approved. Lawmakers from both parties are now pushing to use the National Defense Authorization Act to compel the federal government to disclose more information about these objects.
AARO is committed to transparency with the American people about their work on UAP. Their website will serve as a hub for publicly available information related to AARO and UAP, and the website will be regularly updated with their latest activities and findings as new information is cleared for public release.
The new website for AARO can be visited at https://www.aaro.mil.
