RichHoffman-01a.pngRich Hoffman: For nearly six decades, since his eighth-grade science class and timed with the Patrolman Lonnie Zamora sighting in Socorro, New Mexico on 24 April 1964, Rich has been pursuing his primary interest in investigating, researching, and lecturing about UFOs.

Rich grew up in Dayton, Ohio and started his investigations into UFOs in 1964 and was connected with Project Blue Book, Dr. J. Allen Hynek and other thought leaders within the UFO field. In late 1969, he joined the Midwest UFO Network, later known as MUFON. He was also the Director of Investigations for the Ohio UFO Investigators League. Over his many decades with MUFON, he served as State Section Director, State Director, Star Team Manager, Deputy Director for Investigations and then Director, Strategic Projects. He remains a Benefactor and Lifetime Member in MUFON

In June 2017, Rich left his positions in MUFON to start a scientific organization known as the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU). Currently, he is an Executive Board Officer with them. SCU is composed of 150+ scientists, engineers, former military, academia, and business professionals who work to solve the phenomena using scientific methodologies and leverage current technologies to investigate them. It is a Think Tank that focuses on cases that have strong supportive evidence and requires dedicated scientific study.

He is also a member of a team of scientists and engineers working in UFOData, a project within CUFOS and a member of the UAPx effort to do instrumented studies along the Pacific coastline and other hotspot areas. These efforts seek to utilize technologies such as radar, multi-spectral cameras, and electromagnetic detectors and other technologies in order to study the UAP.

Professionally, Rich is an Army Information Technology (IT) defense contractor with Chugach Government Solutions. He is a Senior Systems Engineer Analyst working in the US Army Materiel Command Headquarters at Redstone Arsenal, Huntsville, Alabama helping to shape the future directions of systems, networks and application hosting arrangements used within the Army.

With a B.A. degree from Wright State University in Organizational Communication and an extensive career in leadership positions in numerous business sectors, he has a solid background in numerous disciplines to include IT, Training & Development, Organizational Development, and many others.

Our guest cohost will be Curt Collins.

Could you Rich? Lonnie never changed his story over the years but is it possible that this was an experimental Government craft and the figures were simply in protective coverings.
 
Just listen to Mich Hanks latest on 014/06/2022 'UNCLEAR INTENT' podcast recommend all get it a listen (its a gem). Another guest should come back on the Paracast show . While Mich Hanks analysis on the current political and scientific debate on alleged UFO (UAP) sightings are "Drones" or "Unknowns" as US Congress de-classified them in latest round of hearings". Its a longbow to suggests USAF (USAAF) could not tell if a craft was giving false pings or not. Remembering most of the Project Sign, Project Grudge , Project Bluebook were WW2 Veterans who were trained in counter-intelligent observations course including Major Marcel , Major Keyhole and Captain Ruppelt all had been through the training camps. While a lot of folks are investing time and energy on the UAP most being' drones ' ? going on excellent researchers such as Mick West and others. Today UAP researchers can't ignore the Roswell Cases or others including 'Bentwaters due to the baggage of fear ridicle is playing into the "noisy negatives" as Stan would say. In a positive step European Space Agency and NASA joining forces is a right step in the direction on studies on CIA/FBI Archives "Flying Objects -Flying Saucers'"(yes it not going away) with Climate Change (Global Warming) still happening a faster rate as Ukraine-Russia War has seen the effects already in the atmosphere as other conflicts will increase Earth Changes as ESA Director General Josef Aschbaher has pointed out excellent quote from 'N 30-2022: From The Earth To The Moon And To Mars-ESA and NASA Take Decisions And Plans For The Future (15th, June 2022" When it comes to global challenges such as Climate Crisis , we each have our role to play..."p.3. That includes finding the answers to the different range and scopes of 'Flying Objects-Flying Saucers-UFO-UAPs-USO's regarding its impact on 'Climate Change Crisis with indicators of advance technologies shown by their capabilities through the decades and detection in outer space and lower orbit as in 1960s, 1970s , 1980s and up today numerous times going on military and civilian eyewitness . No one person or groups owns UAP investigation it belongs to the World and not just the fringe media. Next few months will be a gamechanger and as will the following decade with more advances in Artificial Intelligence as ESA Director General Josef Aschbaher states in numerous speeches over the decade. Furthermore, will need to review the UN Space Treaty of 1971 and update with ongoing events.

ALPHA ROMEO UNIFORM, most of the issues from your post were discussed in the interview. Some provided the basis for our questions put to Rich Hoffman. I think you'll be pleased with the scope of the conversation.

Your right. Great show and I learned something I didn't know. All facts and no time wasted on science fiction.
