"Congressional Record"

Then, in a blog post dated 15 August 2018, it was noted that the "Congressional Record" dated 9 April 2018 contained the following note:

"4381. A letter from the Chief, Congressional Relations Division, Defense Intelligence Agency, Department of Defense, transmitting a list of all products produced under the Advanced Aerospace Threat and Identification program contract for the Defense Intelligence Agency to publish, to the Committee on Armed Services.

Nick Pope

On 17 January 2019,  Nick Pope advised on Facebook that "the DIA Office of Corporate Communications released to me the letter DIA sent to Congressional Committees about AATIP." The letter was dated 9 January 2018; addressed to The Honourable John McCain, Senate Committee on Armed Services, and was signed by Christine Kapnisi, Chief DIA Congressional Relations Division.

Attached to the letter were three pages  listing the "38 reports associated with DIA's involvement in the program documented in the list."

The purpose of this blog post is to look at this January 2018 list and compare it to the list previously made available to us by Knapp/Adams. In order to do this in an easy way, I copy the Knapp/Adams list, and below each of their DIRDs I will insert the details of the DIRDs from the 2018 DIA letter.

38. Redacted.

 37. State of the Art and Evaluation of High Energy Laser Weapons, J Albertine, Directed technologies. (Formerly classified SECRET/NOFORN.)

In summary

As will be seen from this comparison, the titles of many of the DIRDs as listed in the DIA letter are the same, or very close to those listed by Knapp/Adams. The matter of the 38th redacted DIRD is now resolved. There was both an unclassified, and a classified version of the paper  State of the Art and Evaluation of High Energy Laser Weapons, J Albertine, Directed Technologies. 

In addition, the question of what the "products" were, as referenced in the "Congressional Record" is now resolved. The "products" were the 38 DIRDs. This is disappointing as some researchers seem to have believed that the "products" would be all of the paperwork that AATIP generated over the years. Regretfully, this is not the case, and we still await the outcome of FOIA applications for the whole of the AATIP paperwork.

Acknowledgment

I wish to thank US researcher Nick Pope for releasing this letter and attachments, so promptly. A number of us, including myself, are still waiting for a DIA response under the FOIA, where we have also asked for a copy of this letter and list.

Note:

A check of LinkedIn shows an entry for Christine Kapnisi, to have been the Congressional Liaison for the last 16 years.

Updates 18 January 2019

Researcher Roberto Labanti drew my attention to a blog post on the website of the Federation of American Scientists.  In a piece entitled "More Light on Black Program to Track UFOs" author Steven Aftergood, writes about the public release, to him, under the FOIA, of a copy of the Letter from the DIA to Congress.

The EarthTech International website has a list of Eric Davis's DIA DIRDs. These are:
