Estimating Flight Characteristics of Anomalous Unidentified Aerial Vehicles

Abstract

A number of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) encountered by military, commercial, and civilian aircraft have been reported to be structured craft that exhibit 'impossible' flight characteristics. We consider a handful of well-documented encounters, including the 2004 encounters with the Nimitz Carrier Group off the coast of California, and estimate lower bounds on the accelerations exhibited by the craft during the observed maneuvers. Estimated accelerations range from almost 100g to 1000s of g's with no observed air disturbance, no sonic booms, and no evidence of excessive heat commensurate with even the minimal estimated energies. In accordance with observations, the estimated parameters describing the behavior of these craft are both anomalous and surprising. The extreme estimated flight characteristics reveal that these observations are either fabricated or seriously in error, or that these craft exhibit technology far more advanced than any known craft on Earth. In many cases, the number and quality of witnesses, the variety of roles they played in the encounters, and the equipment used to track and record the craft favor the latter hypothesis that these are indeed technologically advanced craft. The observed flight characteristics of these craft are consistent with the flight characteristics required for interstellar travel. That is, if these observed accelerations were sustainable in space, then these craft could easily reach relativistic speeds within a matter of minutes to hours and cover interstellar distances in a matter of days to weeks, proper time.

Interesting, never heard of these guys. It seems that Kevin H. Knuth is an Associate Professor of Physics at SUNY, Albany. No luck with the other two, using a super-quick search. Anyways, will have to read this one. If it turns out that Knuth is a University Physics professor with a genuine interest in the phenomenon and a paper in the works, he might make for an interesting guest.

Please let me know if he's already been on the show...

He's been on Radio Misterioso.
I hope this is okay as Greg has been on the Paracast a number of times.

The two other are both members of The Scientific Coalition for Ufology

Their credentials are less impressive than Knuth's.
