    Default Japan’s Defense Ministry Launches Protocol for UFO Sightings

    Japan follows US Navy lead, establishes UFO Reporting Procedures (Protocols)

    Alex Hollings




    Japanese Defense Minister Taro Kono has announced new standing orders for troops serving in Japan’s Self Defense Force who spot unusual lights, or UFOs, in the sky. Following in the well publicized footsteps of the U.S. Navy, troops will now have a formalized reporting process for UFO sightings.

    According to Japanese media sources, the Japanese Self Defense Force does not have any known cases of troops encountering UFOs, but sees the establishment of reporting procedures as a prudent step in this modern era of ever-advancing military technology. While conventional military aircraft can often be mistaken for something more exotic in they sky simply because they tend not to fly like more common commercial or private aircraft, there’s a more pressing reason for further investigation into these unusual sightings than simply keeping tabs on airplane and helicopter traffic.


    The United States, Russia, and China are all currently racing to develop hypersonic weapons and aircraft capable of maintaining speeds in excess of Mach 5. To offer some insight into just how incredible these speeds are, it’s worth noting that the SR-71, the fastest production military aircraft in history, could only do slightly better than Mach 3. Because of the incredible friction created by air molecules impacting the aircraft at those speeds, the SR-71 had to utilize a solid quartz windshield, as a traditional glass windshield would melt in those conditions.

    High speed weapons and even aircraft aren’t the only burgeoning technologies that could easily be mistaken for a spaceship from another world. The U.S. Navy themselves recently patented laser induced plasma filament technology that could — very literally — create a UFO hologram in mid-air, complete with infrared signature.

    This technology is being developed for aircraft missile defense — a fighter with an infrared (or “heat seeking”) missile fired at it could engage it’s laser induced plasma filiment hologram technology to create the illusion of another, hotter aircraft in open space nearby. The inbound missile would then divert to the more significant IR signature produced by the hologram, and leave the aircraft itself unscathed.

    While imagining that the U.S. Navy and now the Japanese Self Defense Forces may be hot on the trail of uncovering extraterrestrial visitors, the impetus behind establishing these new procedures is decidedly down to earth. If in fact some of the reports coming in from military personnel really do suggest alien visitors, that, of course, could represent a threat to the safety of the American and Japanese people… but perhaps more pressing is the possibility that these incursions into U.S. and other airspace may not be alien at all… but rather technology demonstrators or even advanced platforms developed right here on earth, being leveraged by nations like China.

    Last year, the United States Navy made headlines around the world when they announced new reporting procedures for Navy aviators who spot unusual phenomena in the skies. The announcement came on the heels of months of discussion about three U.S. Navy videos that reached the public before they were formally declassified earlier this year.

    The videos themselves, which were taken in 2004 and 2015, show U.S. Navy fighter pilots attempting to intercept unusual objects the Navy refers to as “unexplained aerial phenomena.” That phrase, and its abbreviation, UAP, has come to serve as a new replacement for the dated “UFO” acronym that many now see as synonymous with extraterrestrial craft. The new term, UAP, can now be found readily all over the internet, being used by both serious investigators and outspoken conspiracists alike.

    As the New York Times came to discover in 2017, the Pentagon had actually invested some $22 million between 2007 and 2012 into investigating unusual reports from service members in what some have called a real life version of the popular Fox TV series, “The X-Files.” While funding was cut off in 2012, the investigations reportedly continued under the supervisions of a man named Luis Elizondo, who has since gone on to join the staff of Tom Delonge’s To the Stars Academy, which is an organization devoted to finding ways to leverage this sort of unusual phenomena commercially.

    In August of this year, the U.S. Defense Department announced the establishment of an Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force (UAPTF) that will answer directly to the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, to further the investigation into these and other unusual reports.

    “The Department of Defense established the UAPTF to improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins of UAPs. The mission of the task force is to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security.”
    –Pentagon Press Release

    While stories of alien visitors date back as far as written history, America itself was first introduced to the idea of alien spacecraft visiting earth during World War II, when pilot’s reports of unusual lights in the sky they called “Foo Fighters” made headlines all over the country. The 1947 Roswell incident that allegedly saw the recovery of a crashed alien spacecraft in New Mexico, as well as reports of UFOs flying over the White House in 1952 and many others went on to solidify the idea of flying saucers visiting earth in the minds of many Americans.

    Since those early days of UFO-mania, the federal government has investigating reports under the purview of a few different official programs like the Air Force’s Project Blue Book, but has largely remained dismissive of the idea that these strange sightings might actually be alien in nature. In fact, the classic joke that UFO sightings are “just swamp gas” originates in these formal efforts to explain away unusual sightings.

    Today, however, the American defense apparatus seems more interested than ever in exploring unusual reports made by service members, and it makes good sense that Japan would follow suit. Both the United States and Japan have found themselves in a veritable staring match with China over sovereignty claims in the South China Sea, prompting both nations to take reports of seemingly advanced technology in the air above this contested region rather seriously. After all, one man’s UFO could always be another’s man’s advanced stealth drone.

    Of course, these are not the only nations to report UFO activity. Earlier this year, the U.K. Ministry of Defense published the entirety of its UFO investigation archives, and in 2018 the Chilean government released footage of a UFO captured by a Chilean Navy helicopter pilot in 2014, saying they had exhausted any possible explanation for the footage.

    While establishing reporting procedures within the U.S. Navy and Japanese Self Defense Forces may help these two governments get to the bottom of these unusual sightings and reports, that doesn’t mean the general public will be in the loop any time soon. If an investigation were to point toward some kind of advanced technology developed by a nation like China or Russia, the findings would likely remain classified for some time.

    Japan’s Defense Ministry Launches Protocol for UFO Sightings

    Japan’s Self Defense Force has received instruction on steps to take should a UFO be identified.

    By Thisanka Siripala

    Among UFO aficionados in Japan, summer is seen as the season for flying saucers. In mid-June Japan’s well known UFO hotspots didn’t disappoint after a mysterious unidentifiable white balloon with a connected cross-propeller shaped object was spotted in the skies of the northeastern city of Sendai and Fukushima prefecture. The mysterious aerial object was observed at 7 a.m. and some witnesses say it resembled a hot air balloon. Japan’s Meteorological Agency denied any observational equipment being dispatched by the agency. Miyagi Prefectural Police flew a helicopter to investigate the object but was forced to turn around due to poor weather conditions. Police say the aerial object disappeared without causing any danger to commercial flight paths. In December 2019 Fuji News Network (FNN) also reported capturing footage of an illuminating object in the sky traveling at tremendous speed in Iwaki City, Fukushima prefecture.

    In late April then-Defense Minister Kono Taro announced plans to confirm a course of action in the event that Japan’s Self-Defense Force (SDF) encounters a UFO. Kono stated that while the SDF has not witnessed UFOs, the U.S Defense Department’s decision to release black and white footage of UFO sightings in April sparked concerns over Japan’s national security. The new official procedures, announced this week, expect the SDF to first make sure they are seeing an unidentified aerial object followed by taking written and photographic records for further analysis in addition to the collection of information provided by the public.

    At a press conference on September 15, Kono said he hoped the new policy would be viewed as collecting information rather than searching for unidentified flying objects from space. Kono emphasized that UFOs are “indistinguishable objects, not objects from space.” Kono revealed that he personally does not believe in the existence of UFOs and made clear that drones could be one possible explanation. Kono referenced the case of a 2019 drone attack on a Saudi Arabia oil facility by an “unnamed flying vehicle” and stated that “it would be a lie if he had not kept drones in mind.”

    In April the U.S Defense Department declassified military footage shot by U.S. Navy pilots showing three separate UFO encounters, one in 2004 and two in 2015. In early August the Pentagon launched an Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force led by the Navy to investigate whether UFOs pose a danger to aircrew safety and U.S. military aircraft. In a recent security meeting between the United States and Japan in Guam, Kono and U.S Secretary of Defense Mark Esper touched on the possibility of working together on UFOs as part of the Japan-U.S security alliance.

    That marks a sea change from February 2018, when the Japanese government issued an official stance denying the existence of UFOs. The cabinet at the time issued a written response highlighting there was no special consideration on how to respond to unidentified aerial objects.

    In 1992 a UFO research center and museum called “UFO Fureaikan” (UFO Friendship Center) was launched in Iinomachi, Fukushima prefecture partially funded by a 100 million yen government local revitalization grant. The center was built on a pyramid shaped hill called Senganmori that has developed a reputation for attracting UFO activity, supposedly because of the hill’s strong magnetic field.

    Japanese Defense Ministry unveils protocol for encountering UFOs

    Defense Minister Taro Kono speaks during an interview in Tokyo on Sept. 3. Kono on Monday unveiled protocol for the Self-Defense Forces to follow for dealing with unidentified aerial objects that could pose a threat to Japan’s security.

    by Jesse Johnson

    Protocol for UFOs? That’s exactly what Defense Minister Taro Kono ordered the Self-Defense Forces to follow Monday as he issued standing orders for dealing with unidentified aerial objects that could pose a threat to Japan’s security.

    In a statement, Kono asked SDF members to record and photograph any such objects that they encounter or that enter Japanese airspace and to take steps for the “necessary analysis” of the sightings, including information provided separately by the public.

    While the Defense Ministry says there have been no known cases of the SDF encountering UFOs, the latest move comes after the U.S. Defense Department established a special Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force last month in order “to improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins” of the objects and other phenomena.

    The Pentagon also released videos in April that were taken in 2004 and 2015, including one that showed an elliptical flying object that demonstrated unseen levels of speed and maneuverability.

    Kono said after the videos’ release that he does not believe in UFOs.

    Rather, one key aspect of forming the protocol was to have rules in place in the event that SDF members encounter unconventional aircraft, including ever-advancing drone technology, that could pose a national security threat.

    In February 2018, the Japanese government made public its official position on UFOs, saying that “no confirmation has been made of their existence.”

    The document, a Cabinet-issued response to questions from a lawmaker, added that there was no existing policy as to what the government would do in the event of a confirmed UFO sighting.

    “The government has not considered in any specific manner what will be done should a UFO be spotted flying toward Japan,” it said.

    After the Pentagon officially released videos of “unidentified aerial phenomena,” Japan’s Defense Ministry will draw up plans for any potential encounters with UFOs, according to a Japanese media report.

    Nippon reports the government agency will “consider procedures to respond to, record and report encounters, but the unknown nature of such objects may confuse Self-Defense Forces pilots, including those of F-15 fighter jets.”

    Defense Minister Taro Kono noted the country’s SDF pilots have yet to encounter UFOs, but protocols are being established “to cover the possibility,” the report added.

    Fox News has reached out to the Defense Ministry with a request for comment.

    The news comes just one week after the Pentagon officially released unclassified footage that showed “unidentified aerial phenomena” captured by Navy aircraft. The footage had circulated in the public for years.

    “After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena,” said Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough.

    “DOD is releasing the videos in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos,” Gough added. “The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as ‘unidentified.’”

    After the videos were released, the head of The Stars Academy of Arts & Science (TTSA) and former Blink-182 co-founder Tom DeLonge said “UFOs are real” in a now-deleted tweet.

    Former Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the footage “scratches the surface of research and materials” made available by the Pentagon.
