Dr. Colm Kelleher and the Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications program

To the Stars Academy

The other day, I was re-reading the list of team members of the To The Stars Academy (TTSA) , to refresh my memory of who was on the team. One of the members is Dr. Colm Kelleher. The TTSA website states that Dr. Kelleher is their "Biotech consultant" and provides the following information:

"Dr. Colm Kelleher is a biochemist with a twenty-eight-year research career in cell and molecular biology currently working in senior management in the aerospace industry. He served as Laboratory Director at biotech company, Prosetta Corporation, leading several small molecule drug discovery  programs focused on viruses of interest to the United States Department of Defense. He worked for eight years as Deputy Director of the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS) a research organization using forensic science methodology to unravel scientific anomalies.

From 2008-2011, he served as  Deputy Administrator of a US government funded threat assessment program focused on advanced aerospace technology. Dr. Kelleher has authored more than forty peer  reviewed scientific articles in cell and molecular biology, immunology and virology as well as two best selling books, "Hunt for the Skinwalker" and "Brain Trust." He holds a  Ph.D in biochemistry from the University of Dublin, Trinity College.

Note, part of the statement
What caught my eye this time around was the statement "From 2008-2011, he served as  Deputy Administrator of a US government funded threat assessment program focused on advanced aerospace technology." This strongly suggests that he worked on the Defense Intelligence Agency's Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications program.
I visited the LinkedIn website and looked at Dr. Kelleher's profile, and found:
Deputy Administrator
2008-2012 4yrs
* Interviewed, hired and trained a team of 50 scientists, engineers, analysts, and created the classified security infrastructure for an IC [Intelligence Community -KB] contract to study proprietary advanced aerospace technology and threat analysis
* Briefed government department undersecretary and serving United States Senators on threat analysis and advanced technology programs
* Worked closely with IC to develop and execute multiple programs involving advanced aerospace technology including negotiating and executing multi-disciplinary subcontracts for database creation, physics and engineering analysis and medical science studies
* Led in the creation of all scientific programs and strategic initiatives for the company
* Interfaced with Congressional staff, political consultants, Washington DC think tanks and other organizations in the furtherance of company goals
* COMSEC Custodian and Facility Security Officer for IC latter contract period."
Dr. Kelleher is currently the Vice President & Chief Scientist Environmental Control & Life Support Systems, at Bigelow Aerospace.
Roger Glassel
Swedish researcher, Roger Glassel in his recent piece on AAWSA/AATIP in one section wrote that he had found a person in the Nevada area that had worked for Bigelow Aerospace between 2009 and 2010. More specifically, he was employed "in a interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers studying advanced aerospace weapon system applications including lift, propulsion, control, power generation, signature reductions, materials and armament." Neither Roger nor I have named this individual in our respective blog posts about the AAWSA program. However, this individual is not Dr. Colm Kelleher. I  believe Roger Glassel missed Dr Kelleher's LinkedIn profile as it did not specifically mention the AAWSA program.
Statement from a senior manager of BAASS
On 4 May 2018, a piece appeared on the LasVegasNow website titled "I-Team: Documents prove secret UFO studies based in Nevada" by George Knapp and Matt Adams. Embedded in the text was a link to a "Statement from a senior manager of BAASS." The statement included:
"The investigations by BAASS provided new lines of evidence showing that the UFO phenomenon was a lot more than nuts and bolts machines that interacted with military aircraft...The exclusive focus on nuts and bolts machines could be considered myopic and unproductive in solving the larger mystery of UFOs..."
"...One of the major successes of BAASS was in adopting the novel approach of utilizing the human body as a readout system for dissecting interactions with the UFO phenomenon...The evidence was multiplying that the UFO phenomenon was capable of manipulating and distorting human perception and therefore eyewitness testimony of UFO activity was becoming increasingly untrustworthy..."
"...The approach aimed to bypass UFO deception and manipulation of human perception by utilizing molecular forensics to decipher the biological consequences of the phenomenon..."
Who was the author of this statement?
Based on the language and content of the statement, it is a reasonable deduction that the author of the statement was Dr. Colm Kelleher.

Update 12 June 2018.

A number of people have pointed out that it is more likely to have been Dr Hal Puthoff who was the author of this statement. I have been unable to confirm who it was, at this point of time. 


  1. This seems to confirm the theory that the Bigelow part of the AAWSA equation is:
    NIDS + DOD contract = BAASS

  2. Do the words of Puthoff in relation to Kelleher, make it any clearer here?

    We also put together a policy and scientific advisory panel of the best people we could find. Chris Mellon agreed to be the Chair. Dr. Colm Kelleher, he was actually the deputy administrator at Bigelow Aerospace to run the AATIP program out of the Pentagon. Dr. Gary Nolan, top genetics professor at Stanford University. Dr. Kahn, 30 year career with the CIA counter biological weapons program. Dr. Rapp, professor of military and emergency medicine, Uniform Services University. Dr. Gilpin, consultant on academic biomedical research and research law
