Common shapes of unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP), their flight dynamics and other reported characteristics, and a pair of new videos were among the new information presented on Wednesday at a hearing by the Senate Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities, which focused on the Pentagon’s All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO). During the open portion of the session led by U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), questions were presented to Dr. Sean M. Kirkpatrick, the Director of AARO and the sole witness for Wednesday’s hearing, about its investigations into unidentified aerial objects encountered by U.S. personnel. “We don’t know where they come from, who made them, or how they operate,” Gillibrand said in her opening remarks, referring to anomalous incursions that AARO is tasked with investigating. Gillibrand expressed additional concerns about the limited operational budget allocated to the Office, as well as coordination between AARO and other agencies regarding recent incidents involving unidentified aerial objects shot down over the U.S. and Canada earlier this year. “We cannot keep turning a blind eye to surveillance data that is critical to detecting and tracking UAP,” Gillibrand added, before turning the session over to Dr. Kirkpatrick. “AARO has accomplished much in the last nine months since it was established,” Kirkpatrick said in his opening statement, noting the Office has primarily focused on the four areas that include operations, scientific research, integrated analysis, and strategic communications.
