Inexplicata has reported that the Argentinian government has made the decision to Create an Official UFO Commission.
According to multiple news agencies, a spokesperson for the Argentinean Air Force (AAF) confirmed on December 29th, 2010, that the decision to create a commission to record and investigate claims of unidentified flying objects in that country’s air space will be created. The AAF’s media consultant, Captain Mariano Mohaupt — who confirmed that the Air Force has already recorded the unexplained experiences of some of its pilots with what may allege to be visitors from OUT OF THIS WORLD — commented on the matter:
“The Commission for the Research of Aerospatial Phenomena is in the process of being formed… and now things will be perceived from the formal, professional standpoint, contributing toward our mission, which is to control our air space.”
The team would be multidisciplinary in nature, including meteorologists, flight controllers, pilots and radar specialists, and shall receive reports made by citizens regarding phenomena seen in space. According to Mohaupt:
“There are many reports that are later investigated, and they turn out not involve unconventional events.”
Organizations of this type already exist in other countries of the South America, such as Uruguay’s Commission for the Receipt and Investigation of Reports on Unidentified Flying Objects (CRIDOVNI), Peru’s Office for the Anomalous Aerial Phenomena Investigation (OIFAA) and Chile’s Committee for the Study of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena (CEFAA)
The SIOANI files can be downloaded from the Portal de Ufología Brasileira. The organization chart and details of the Unidentified Aerial Object Research Central (CIOANI) is also available.
The Brazilian Ufologists Commission (CBU) has proposed reactivating the extinct SIOANI, as a shared endeavor between Aeronautica and interdisciplinary researchers. In August, Brazil announced that the Comando da Aeronautica shall officially record sightings of UFOS in the country’s airspace. The authorities urged civilian and military aircraft pilots, as well as national air traffic controllers, to tell their experiences to this agency, and also furnish any documentary evidence on UFOs.
