    I compiled here a list of technical papers related to UFO electromagnetic effects.

    Just for those who want to study UFOs on more serious level than just watch documentaries. This selection includes many authors that had professional background and experience in electrical engineering.

    by Mark Rodeghier
    Introduction: In my opinion this is the most seminal work on UFO interference with car engines. Practically every work that touched this toppic refered back to Rodeghier's paper. Boring as a hell, but absolutely must read.

    by James M. McCampbell
    Abstract: Disruption of automobile engines by UFOs is a familiar phenomenon. Less well known are instances where an engine that had been killed comes back to life again when the UFO departs, that is, the engine restarts itself without assistance from the driver. Twenty- seven such cases are summarized. A key observation by a mechanic whose engine had been stopped by a UFO suggests a mechanism by which self-starting might be understood. Should a non-firing engine come to rest with one cylinder past top-dead-center, it would entrap a suitable mixture of fuel and air to be ignited by the next arriving spark thereby cranking the engine. Such an event might result from collapse of a gaseous discharge across open breaker points in the distributor. If the discharge had been sustained by ionization of the atmospheric gases caused by the UFO, it would collapse shortly after departure of the UFO.

    by James McCampbell
    Abstract: A summary of the present paper was given at a UFO symposium in 1986 entitled Bridging The Gap. Sponsored by the Mutual UFO Network, it was held on October 11–12 at the Tuolumne County Fairgrounds, Sonora, California. Available time allowed only a discussion of the thesis, essential UFO sightings, major technical points, and the conclusions. Similar abbreviated material was covered at the 24th Annual National UFO Conference, UFOs Over America: 40 Years And Counting, at the Burbank Hilton Hotel, Burbank, California, June 12–14, 1987. The full text as reproduced here was first published in UFOs 1947-1987, The 40-Year Search For An Explanation. Hilary Evans with John Spencer, Editors for the British UFO Research Association, Fortean Times, London, 1987. Ó 1987 McCampbell.

    by A. Meessen
    Abstract: We have shown why the propulsion of Unconventional Flying Objects of unknown origin can result from very intense low-frequency magnetic ¯elds and an adequately pulsed ion-ization of the ambient medium. We also found how these ¯elds could be produced, if the surface of these objects were superconducting. Now, we present evidence of the existence of these ¯elds. It results from traces left on the ground by induced currents, rotating compass needles, direct magnetometer recordings and very remarkable magneto-optical e®ects. They provide even proof of the required pulsed ionization.

    This work is particularly valuable because it contains (pg. 2) rarely published graphs from Ray Stanford's instrumental data recordings (magnetometer and simultaneous gravimeter) collected back in 1978 from the edges of the White Sands Proving Ground, New Mexico.

    by Dr Bruce Maccabee,
    MUFON's Maryland Director writes: Regarding your comments on UFO propulsion. "The phenomenon associated with the presence of a UFOs can be accounted for within the following scientific parameters: The craft emit Electromagnetic radiation measured isotropically that is in all directions of approximately one megawatt, that is a million watts." Bruce states, "This number must be considered a complete guess. The only real data we have (here I ignore any possible data the "control group"-- should there be one -- might have; I refer only to "open literature data") is that, at least in some cases, UFOs radiate visible light in the hundreds of KW to MW range. However, the visible spectrum is only part of it. A photo taken by Ed Walters in the presence of witnesses in Pensacola, Florida on March 12, 1991, using infrared film indicates that there could be many (ten? hundred?) more times in the infrared (see UFOs ARE REAL, HERE'S THE PROOF, Avon, pg. 177). And there are numerous other wavelengths as well. Hence "one megawatt" MIGHT be an underestimate in some cases.

    by Joe Kirk Thomas
    In a recent issue of the MUFON Journal (November 1983) Jim McCampbell advanced theory to explain the heating of finger righs and watch bands in CEII cases. The crux of his thoery is that microwaves emitted by a UFO have a wavelengths cmparable to standard ring diameters. Ins such cases, the rings are "tuned" to the microwave frequency and efficiently draw energy from the field. This energy is converted to heat and causes a rise in ring temperature sufficient to cause discomfort or even first degree burns.

    by Bruce Maccabee Dr
    Abstract - Following the brief sighting of an unidentified flying object in Gulf Breeze, Florida in Septemrber 1992, investigators made an area search using a fluxgate gradient magnetometer and found a strong magnetic field gradient, indicative of a strong source of magnetic field, which appeared to be at a or above the tops of some trees near a small pond. Three circles of depressed grass were found in the bottom of the shallow pond.

    by Donald Johnson
    Abstract: Some reports of UFO sightings involve events in which motorized land vehicles experience ignition or electrical system interference in the presence of a UFO; 276 such reports were collected from the UFO literature. These events were analyzed to determine the role played by position of UFO and distance from UFO to vehicle in the severity of the reported electrical system interference. highly significant relationship (p .001) was found between position of UFO and severity of effect. substantial majority of the cases experiencing complete engine failures (stalls) occurred when the UFO was reported either directly in front of or above the witness' vehicle. A significant inverse relationship (p .03) was found between reported distance from the UFO and severity of effect. significant interaction between position and distance was discovered (p .04). UFOs appearing in front of or above the witness' vehicle were reported as being closer than those observed behind or off to one side. It was hypothesized that this interaction may be responsible for the correlation between position and severity of effect. Constructing a multidimensional contingency model to test for relative effects was not possible due to incomplete data. It was recommended that investigators of future events make a special effort to obtain distance and position estimates.

    by NICAP
    Abstract: Since 1947 similar E-M effect have occured in the presence of UFOs in at least the following countries: France, England, Italy, Norway, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, venezuela, Canada and Australia. Also in the new states of Hawaii and Alaska. The implication of these repors is that, whatever UFOs may be, they appear to affect electrical cirucits under certain conditions. There is no absolutoe proof, but repeated association of this effect with plainly visibel UFO can leave little doubt that it is a valid to say the UFOs caused the effects. Any other interpretation would imply a chain of coincidences of such magnitude that it would be more incredible than accepting the fact of car-stalling UFOs.

    by Dr. Jean-Pierre Petit
    Abstract: The last, but not the least. Special bonus for those who read the whole post all the way to the bottom ;-). You need to watch this video first, where Dr. Jean-Pierre Petit reveals one by one each of US Above The Top Secret Black-Budget programs, like Aurora or secret US faster than sound MHD torpedos:
    Jean-Pierre Petit about the secret American MHD technology

    After above video gives you enough of intro there is this comic by Dr. Pettit that explains MHD propulsion to novices:

    - distances are in Feet -​

    Mark Rodeghier's graph above is the crown jewel of this list of papers. You can find it on the page 91 of the "UFO Reports Involving Vehicle Interference".

    This graph was refereed to into at least 3 of the above papers and by Petter Sturrock, Stanford Univ. physics professor in his book "UFO Enigma".

    This graph shows 441 cases of care engine stalling (X-axis) vs distance from UFO (Y-axis). Reports span from 1909 to 1981 and come from 7 countries: US, England, France, Argentina, Spain, Brazil, Australia.

    This is as close as UFO forensics will ever come to a SCIENTIFIC PROOF THAT UFOs are here. Why?

    This graph closely matches inverse power law. Inverse power defines propagation of all the electro-magnetic fields. How are these 441 witnesses, from 7 countries and 3 continents, who lived from 1909 to 1981 going to agree among themselves which distance is each one going to quote in their testimonies. In other words, witnesses are completely independent from each other.

    Because of absolute witness independence and close match with inverse power law this evidence is completely unrefutable.

    Thanks for posting this. I've been curious about this topic for a long time, and have never seen a list of resources like this. There have been some references to such a collection of scientific analysis as this over the years, but I don't think I've even seen one link. I've thought many times about taking some time to hunt this stuff down but never did start that process.

    I have seen some very interesting things in individual encounter reports, like car engines stalling while trucks or other equipment powered by diesel engines kept running. That's mostly from earlier reports though, I think. Most modern diesels rely on electronic systems and would presumably be more likely to be affected by strong magnetic fields or whatever causes the dead engine, dead battery phenomenon. I'm surprised there are few reports of damage done to the vehicles involved. Guess I have some reading to get going on!

    This is another area where it's hard to keep your head in the sand. Most of the self-appointed disabusers of us irrational hicks from our superstitions tend to ignore it completely.

    Yeah, there is a lot more serious technical investigations of UFOs. Particularly in the old MUFON, NICAP etc. archives. Just follow references to any names mentioned inside the above papers. I practically stopped watching documentaries and am completely focusing on the technical papers and books.

    I didn't list here books and e-books that contain carefully done studies by PhDs and Dr's:

    Hill, Paul
    Unconventional Flying Objects: A Scientific Analysis
    (He was McDonalld Douglas Cheif Aerodynamicist, classic book)

    Peter A. Sturrock
    The UFO Enigma: A New Review of the Physical Evidence
    (Professor of physics at Stanford University, phenomenal scientific analysis)

    Christian Lambright
    X Descending
    (I only read the part with Ray Stamford's work)

    Carl W. Feindt
    UFOs and Water: Physical Effects of UFOs On Water Through Accounts By Eyewitnesses

    Paul Stonehill, Philip Mantle
    Russia's USO Secrets: Unidentified Submersible Objects in Russian and International Waters

    Leonard George Cramp
    UFOs and Anti-Gravity: Piece for a Jig-Saw: Pt. 1 (Alternative Science): UFOs and Anti-gravity Pt.1
    (contains few water cases, good analysis of electrodynamics effects)

    Albert Einstein
    Unified Field Theory

    Williams, Pharis E

    Paul A. LaViolette
    Secrets Of Antigravity Propulsion: Tesla, UFO's, and Classified Aerospace Technology

    Valone, Thomas
    Electrogravitics: No. 2: Validating Reports on a New Propulsion Methodology

    Hutchitson Effect
    He hadn't done any books but his work 'smells' of GR which is my main focus now. Phase-shifting EM pulsed waves. To myself, at least, gravity 'smells' of being a second order relativistic effect. Second order being accelerated charges. Pulsed phase-shifted e-current wave = accelerated charges. That's at a core of what Hutchitson was experimenting with.

    Dropbox - ufo.eng.AMATEUR.EM.Huchitson via Piggotts Effect.pdf

    Searl Effect
    Again 'smells' of GR like nothing else. In GR rotating magnets create gravitation. Searl was rotating custom made magnets. Importantly they were built of layers of switched magnetic field zones.
    Dropbox - ufo.book.John A. Thomas - Story of John Searl.pdf

    I arranged books by credibility, in my personal opinion, top to the bottom.

    Important point is that each one of the above authors had limitations. Most of them were either too specialized, like aerodynamicist Paul Hill, and reduced the analysis to only their own field of knowledge and just fumbled all else. Or they were restricted by the data they had, like Peter Sturrock the most qualified of all ufologists, but he didn't have access to water cases. Leonard Cramp was a chemist, who was driven to learn electrodynamics to explain UFOs. Cramp did a good job of assembling a long list of very informative cases.

    Unfortunately, potentially the most resourceful UFO data in existence, Ray Stamford's work, can only be gleaned from bits and pieces scattered in many of above works.

    But when you read all those books and all those papers ;-) than you can get a technical picture big enough that you have an all aspects view of the subject. Only than you can start making constructive conclusions. Peter Sturrock's analysis is by far the nearest to be the most complete. Sturrock excelled in proving that many UFOs use very hot liquid metals as part of their machinery. Molten liquid metals are both excellent for heat transfer in heat pipes (say, from a nuclear reactor) and as very efficient current source as hot cathodes. Strangely enough, hot liquid metals wouldn't mix well with super conductors.

    Water cases are the crown jewels of UFO forensics. Normally long range fields (electric, magnetic, gravitational) around UFOs are invisible. But when UFOs are entering or exiting bodies of water, long range fields can be inferred from behavior of the fluid and water spray. Water cases directly lead to conclusion that UFOs are General Relativity machines producing toroidal gravitomagnetic field and that EM is just a side-effect. I guess Sturrock never new about water cases otherwise, he would be able to extrapolate good information from them. He's now 90+ years old.

    In a meantime I found more interesting technical papers. So, the publishing of a new batch of was long overdue. Please find bellow 'zero hype' material, some of which is stuffed with well known elector-dynamics and general relativity equations ;-)

    Please note that these are not sorted in any particular order, just the way they came in.

    by McDonald Douglas Inc., 1968
    An internal summary of physical characteristics for UFOs prepared by some Douglas engineers. During 50's and 60's several large defense contractors, like Boeing, McDonald Douglas, Lockheed Martin, Hughes Aircraft, BAE (GreenGlow) etc. were commissioning studies into possible field propulsion. After few years that trend stopped. There are few articles about history of these projects on Wikipedia.
    ufo.paper.phys.McDonald Douglas-Inc - Advanced Vehicle Concepts Research 1968.pdf

    by NICAP, 1964
    NICAP was civilian non-profit organization that existed from 1956 to 1980's. It had collected data and it had done a number of technical studies of UFOs. Their reports had always source of the most thorough research and they commissioned scientifically qualified researchers.
    ufo.paper.phys.EM.NICAP - UFO Evidence 1964.pdf

    by Joe Kirk Thomas, 1984
    Low frequency magnetic fields keep coming back each time a qualified engineer or scientist does a investigation. Here Kirk-Thomas studies a single case where UFO left significant material evidence of EM effects. Both effects on humans and soil were presented and well connected to ellectrodynamics.
    ufo.paper.phys.EM.MUFON.Joe Kirk Thomas - Ruppelt Rings - Effects of Low Frequency Magnetic Fields.pdf

    by Meessen, 2012
    Dr Massen was a professor of physics at a Catholic University in Belgium. He was one of the principal investigators, commissioned by Belgian government, to look into the evidence collected from military radars on the ground and in the air. Dr Meessen's here exlains action of UFO's on surroundings purely as electro-magnetic effect. Dr. Meessen is analyzing few cases from Karl Fendt's book "UFOs and Water".
    ufo.paper.phys.EM.Meessen - Pulsed_EM_Propulsion_UFO.pdf

    by Meessen, 2012
    Dr Meessen specialty were superconductors. So here he is expanding on his previous work on EM aspects of UFOs by proposing that superconductors are part of the propulsion.
    ufo.paper.phys.EM.Meessen - Production of EM Surface Waves by Superconducting Spheres.pdf

    by Rober L. Forward, 1962
    As said above, several US and UK military contractors were intensively researching field propulsion. Robert Forward worked for Huges Aircraft Corp and he did a frequently quoted study based on the General Relativity. Unlike Alcubiere, Forward is not proposing worp drives, but a toroid made of super-heavy element and spinning around the minor axis, close to the speed of light.
    ufo.paper.phys.GR.Robert L.Forward - Guidelines to Antigravity.pdf

    by Lindy Tucker, 1994
    UFO sounds are a rich picking for physicist. Although most UFO sightings claim that no sound was heard, many close encounters report high pitch sounds, akin to turbines.
    ufo.paper.phys.MUFON.Lindy Tucker - Tracing Sound to UFO Encounters.pdf

    by James McCampbell, 1976
    This book is McCambell's life work and a small masterpiece. Very similar to Paul Hill's Unconventional Flying Objects. Although nowadays mostly ignored, James McCambell was on the pioneers in a scientific study of physical effects produced by UFOs. McCampbell's contribution is particularly important in a study of EM effects on petrol engines. In this book McCampbell introduces a larger spectrum of physical effects, not just electro-magnetic ones.
    ufo.paper.phys.EM.James McCampbell - Ufology-I.pdf

    by Dr Harold White, 2011
    The last moment addition owing to the reference from @Thomas R Morrison. Alcubiere hadn’t bothered to optimize the size and shape of the warp bubble, which Dr. Sonny White has done using computer software. Dr. White’s optimized warp bubble reduces the energy requirement from the mass of Jupiter to the mass of a Volkswagen bug. And this is without the benefit of understanding the mechanism by which mass distorts spacetime.
    ufo.paper.phys.GR.Dr Harold White - Warp Field Mechanics 101.pdf

    And for completeness another statistical proof. Nuclear physicist, Stanton Freedman had been pointing for a long time to the fact that the initial conclusion of the "Blue Book" study commissioned by US government was that Extra Terestial Hypothesis (ETH) can not be rejected. "Blue Book" study was lead by astronomer prof. Alan Hynek and it found that 21.5% of UFO cases can not be explained by ordinary means. If I understand "statistical" shop-talk correctly: null hypothesis was valid. Unfortunately, message got lost in translation once media and politicians got hold of it.

    This is magnificent work DROBNJAK - a genuine treasure trove. Thank you for providing this unique collection of resources, many of which I've never encountered before. It's going to take months to work through all of these, but I'll relish every moment of it, and I'm sure that we'll enjoy some marvelous discussions about it all once I've gotten caught up.

    Couple of articles i came across today. Apology if they are re-posts.

    LIFTER TEST Report by the ARL (US Army Research Lab)

    Electrokinetics as a Propellantless Propulsion Source - ScienceDirect

    I was looking into the claims in Alien mind a primer.

    Many of the alien sources for this book have hinted at the basics of electrogravity. Grays have hinted indirectly and other aliens have described electrogravity in much more detail:

    electrogravity is used to manipulate computer data, to achieve faster-than-light deep space travel, and to effect faster-than-light communications.

    Some Milky Way aliens and other, hyper-advanced aliens (of yet-unspecified historical duration) have resonated on such themes, hinting, for example, that the larger universal ecology depends on preventing the overuse of electrogravity by greedy, oversized populations. The two latter-noted groups of aliens have gone so far as to suggest that humans need to reduce their population numbers if we want to develop a larger, global system of electrogravity, lest we shorten the life of the sun, due to electrogravity’s effect on the surrounding space-time continuum.

    My reply? As is required of the best of aliens, I place all such knowledge in the regenerative social context in which it was offered. The mathematical implications of the “new” electrogravity universe aren’t solely numerical---they can be construed in shared social and ecological terms.

    For example, when we talk about electrogravity, much of the human future is called into question. Aliens explicitly ask whether humans can rise up and overcome a corrupt human elite that wants to privately own and militarize recovered alien technology, a narrow and often fatuous group of wealthy lawbreakers who want to leave the rest of humankind in ignorance.

    Aliens say that humans will either get it right and learn to use electrogravity non-destructively, or humankind may perish by its own greedy hands—before we can become a threat to other worlds.

    Not all planets survive such selfishness, apparently.
