Officials Hail Rome NY Lab’s Foray Into Quantum Technology

Article by Dave Gymburch                              June 17, 2020                             (romesentinel.com)

• On June 15-16th , the Air Force Research Laboratory headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio sponsored a 2-day event in Rome, New York wherein small tech businesses could make a 20-minute pitch to senior Air Force officials as to novel approaches to advance quantum-enabling technology and applications. The program ultimately awarded 36 contracts to 23 companies from nine states, amounting to $5.4 million to small businesses.

• Rome Lab, the Air Force’s ‘super laboratory’ for science and technology, was praised by a Pentagon official for its key role in quantum technology research. Assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, technology and logistics, Will Roper, said during a keynote session that Quantum technology is “one of those potential game-changers.” “What we hope to do… with Rome Lab leading the way, (is to) get that quantum technology over the goal line and into the warfighter’s hands,” said Roper.

• Roper praised New York Congressman Anthony Brindisi for the work being done at Rome Lab, formally known as the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Information Directorate, and spoke about the importance of research for quantum development and the funding to support it.

• Quantum technology is considered an emerging field of physics and engineering, which relies on principles of quantum physics. Among potential impacts of quantum technology include GPS-like precision in locations where there is no GPS signal or it is severely degraded; ultra-secure global communication networks; high-precision sensors linked together with a quantum network; new computing paradigms for optimization of asset and resource allocations, discovery of new materials, and novel applications of artificial intelligence.

• Congressman Brindisi expressed the importance to bring together small business, industry, and academia with Department of Defense labs for “faster and more efficient development of quantum technology.”

• Rome Lab Director Colonel Timothy Lawrence said the event will hopefully be a “step in the right direction” for giving the Air Force, Space Force and the nation what is needed regarding quantum development.

Rome Lab’s key role in quantum technology research was praised by a Pentagon official during a two-day event aimed at enhancing small businesses’ involvement in the initiative.

Quantum technology is “one of those potential game-changers,” said Will Roper, assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, technology and logistics, during a keynote session Monday for the virtual quantum collider pitch event.

“What we hope to do…the Air Force and the Space Force, with Rome Lab leading the way, is put year-after-year routine demand, routine challenges…routine funding to

Colonel Timothy Lawrence

bring Q-Day, the day we get that quantum technology over the goal line and into the warfighter’s hands…where we bring that early,” said Roper.

Earlier in the session after Congressman Anthony Brindisi spoke about the importance of research for quantum development and the funding to support it, Roper said “I applaud you for thinking ahead and making sure that all quantum roads lead to Rome…and really appreciate all the work the lab is doing in your district.” Rome Lab, based at Griffiss Park, is formally known as the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Information Directorate.

Roper was among several speakers at the event, which included small businesses in private 20-minute pitch sessions with senior officials for novel approaches to advance quantum-enabling technology and/or applications. The AFRL program called for awarding up to 36 contracts and up to $5.4 million to small businesses in this phase of the initiative.

NY Filmmaker Documents UFO ‘Cover-Ups’

Article by Steve Israel                              May 11, 2020                                (recordonline.com)

• In spite of watching three mysterious lights coming towards him and then disappearing behind the Moon when he was a ten-year old in the Bronx, and then seeing a 300-foot rectangular-shaped object in the daytime sky over Montgomery ten years ago, filmmaker and playwright Michael Corriere, 72, (pictured above) of Montgomery, NY, (a northern suburb of New York City) has always been more a skeptic when it comes to UFOs and extraterrestrial beings.

• Then the retired New York City police officer “started looking into” three UFO incidents that all occurred in 1947, including Roswell, the Puget Sound incident, and the Mt Rainier ‘saucers’. On May 13th, Corriere premier for his new film, “Alien Connection…the Final Proof…the Final X-File,” online as part of the New Filmmakers New York Festival, where he dramatizes these UFO incidents and makes the case that the US government has actively covered them up from the public.

• On June 21 1947, two men who were on harbor patrol in the Puget Sound in Washington State saw six doughnut shaped objects in the sky, one of them dumping slag fragments into the water, with some of them landing in their boat. (e.g.: ‘The Maury Island Incident’) Two Army Air Corps officers were dispatched from California to investigate the UFO fragments. Their B-25 bomber crashed due to “engine failure”, killing the officers. The engines were brand new, and the ID numbers on a photo of the crashed plane were different than the numbers in the official crash report.

• “There was so much evidence found,” says Corriere. “But all the reports from local police departments disappeared.” Corriere suspects one of the biggest cover-ups in history going all the way up to the President, Harry Truman. Corriere has asked the United Nations Human Rights Commission to investigate the Puget Sound “crash,” and has also written President Trump about it.

• On June 24, 1947, a private pilot also in Washington reported seeing nine saucer-shaped UFOs as he flew past Mount Rainier. (e.g., ‘The Kenneth Arnold UFO incident’)

• Finally, on July 8, 1947, the front-page headline of the Roswell, NM Daily Record newspaper blared: “Roswell Army Air Force Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch.″ The government immediately changed its story saying that it was a high altitude weather balloon. Then they said it was a high altitude nuclear blast detector. According to an email that Corriere received from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, their records show that President Truman visited the AF base “sometime in September, 1947.” This is where the ‘alien bodies’ from Roswell were allegedly kept, says Corriere.

 

UFOs seemed like they were everywhere in the summer of 1947.

“Roswell Army Air Force Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch…″ blared a front-page headline of the Roswell (New Mexico) Daily Record newspaper in June.

The same month, two men who said they were on harbor patrol in the Puget Sound in Washington State claimed they not only saw six doughnut shaped objects in the sky, they said fragments of them landed on their boat.

In July, a private pilot also in Washington reported seeing nine saucer-shaped UFOs as he flew past Mount Rainier.

It was against this backdrop that two Army Air Corps officers, Capt. William Davidson and Lt. Frank Brown, were sent to Washington to investigate and, reports say, collect the so-called UFO fragments.

They never made it back to their California base. Their B-25 bomber crashed, killing the officers.

Was it engine failure, as the official reports claimed, or was it something else, like sabotage?

Montgomery’s Michael Corriere, a filmmaker, playwright, retired New York City police officer and part-time SUNY Orange security guard, doesn’t buy the official explanation of engine failure.

Not only does he say that the engines were unlikely to fail because they’d just been installed, the ID numbers on a photo of the crashed plane were different than the numbers in the official reports of the crash.

That incident is just one aspect of what Corriere, 72, claims could be one of the biggest coverups in UFO history – a “major coverup″ that, he says, reached all the way to President Harry Truman. Corriere has even asked the United Nations Human Rights Commission to investigate the “crash,” along with writing President Trump about it.

“There was so much evidence found,” Corriere says. “But all the reports from local police departments disappeared.”

US Army Major ‘Hid Debris From Roswell UFO Crash in His Water Heater After Government Tried to Cover it Up’

 

Article by Emma Parry                         February 5, 2020                        (thesun.co.uk)

• In July 1947, a “flying disk” crash landed in the desert near Roswell, New Mexico. Military troops moved into the area to investigate and recover debris from the crash site. Major Jesse Marcel, an intelligence officer for the 509th Bomb Group at the Roswell Army Air Field, was the first military man at the site. Specialist teams were brought in to remove the wreckage. It is claimed by some that several dead alien bodies were also recovered and flown to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio for further study.

• Calvin Parker was 19 years old when he had his own close encounter with a UFO in Pascagoula, Mississippi in October 1973. Parker was fishing on the banks of the Pascagoula River with his pal Charlie Hickson when a UFO landed nearby. Strange creatures with lobster-like claws emerged from the craft, grabbed the two men and dragged them onboard their craft. Being kindred spirits by each having an extraordinary UFO experience, a mutual friend set up three separate meetings between Parker and Marcel in the early 1980s.

• Parker says that Marcel told him “straight up” that a UFO had crashed at Roswell and the US government tried to cover it up. According to Parker, “At first [Marcel] said he was allowed to talk about what had happened but later was told not to say a word in fear that the Russian’s might find out.” “He told me that he was ordered to say that it was just a weather balloon that had crashed, and being a good soldier he carried out those orders.” “He claimed that the government gave out fake information of where the UFO crash site was so that no one would know where it actually happened.”

• At first, the military said that the crashed object was a weather balloon, and later the Air Force claimed it was a downed high-altitude spy balloon from a top secret operation called Project Mogul, to detect Soviet atomic bomb tests. Marcel said he was forced to hold pieces of a weather balloon at a press conference to help debunk the UFO crash story. (see featured image above)

• Major Marcel was very sick at the time of the meetings. He told Parker that, being the first to arrive on the scene at Roswell, he recovered three strange pieces of metal from the crash site. The strange material Marcel found was a kind of lightweight metal that would spring back into shape after being crumpled. He told Parker “[I]t wasn’t anything of this world.” He secretly took the three pieces of the pliable metal material home to show his son, Jesse Jr.

• According to UFO investigator Philip Mantle, Major Marcel’s son, Dr Jesse Marcel Jr, remembers handling the alien material in 1947. But he never saw the material again after that night. Parker and another witness who was interviewed by Mantle say that Marcel confided to them that he had hidden the three pieces of alien material in a hot water heater at his home in Houma, Louisiana. Recalled Parker, “They were hidden in the top of his hot water heater in his house. All you had to do was to undo the top two screws on the water heater and remove the lid.” Unfortunately, Marcel passed away in 1986 before Parker had chance to see him again or check the water heater. “Could the three pieces of UFO debris still be there?” wonders Parker. “Well the house is (still there).”

 

Major Jesse Marcel, who was the first officer on the scene after a “flying disk” crash landed in New Mexico, took material home from the crash site in July 1947 and kept it in his house, according to British investigator Philip Mantle.

Marcel was dispatched by Roswell Army Air Field, where he worked as an intelligence officer for the

509th Bomb Group, to investigate the crash and recovered pieces of the strange material from the desert.

Specialist teams were brought in to clear the wreckage and, it is claimed by some, several dead alien bodies who were flown to Wright Patterson Airforce Base, Ohio, for further study.

The US Air Force said later the object was a downed high-altitude spy balloon from a top secret operation called Project Mogul, which listened out for Soviet atomic bomb

tests.

However, before his death in 1986, Major Marcel admitted there had been a cover-up – and that he was forced to hold pieces of a weather balloon at a press conference to debunk the UFO crash story.

Until now it was not known what happened to the strange material he found at the site – a kind of metal which would spring back into shape after being crumpled – and which he said he took home to show his son, Jesse Jr.

But a witness has told UFO investigator Philip Mantle that the major confided in him that he kept three pieces of the UFO in a hot water heater at his home in Houma, Louisiana.
