Those Defense Intelligence Reference Documents


Eric W Davis interview

In a Coast to Coast radio interview on 28 January 2018, between journalist George Knapp and Eric W Davis, Davis outlined his sub-contractor role within the Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS)  program for the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP.) At the Institute for Advanced Studies, based in Austin, Texas, his job was to provide broad scientific advice, and recommendations. He did not get into any data analysis, video analysis or witness interviews.

He was tasked with looking into the future - around 2050 - to set up a series of expert studies - and produce a series of Defense Intelligence Reference Documents (DIRDs.) To look at a variety of topics and get experts to write a DIRD on that subject. Authors were asked to imagine our earthly technology, extrapolate it to 2050 and compare what we might have by then against what we see of the phenomenon today. Davis stated that 38 such papers were produced, with two being classified.

Hal Puthoff interview

In another 28 January 2018 Coast to Coast interview by George Knapp, this time with Hal Puthoff, Puthoff stated that his role within the AATIP was mainly to look at the physics. He had had 38 papers written

Six DIRDs by Eric W Davis 

On the Earth Tech International Inc. website there is a list of six DIRDs prepared by Eric W Davis. These are:

1. Davis, E.W. (2010), "Laser Lightcraft Nanosatellites," Defense Intelligence Reference Document, Defense Futures, DIA-08-1011-001, Technology Warning Division (DWO-4), Defense Warning Office, Directorate for Analysis, Defense Intelligence Agency, Washington, DC.

2. Obousy, R.K. and Davis, E.W. (2010). "Warp Drive, Dark Energy, and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions," Defense Intelligence Reference Document, Acquisition Threat Support, DIA-08-1004-001, Acquisition Support Division (DWO-3), Defense Warning Office, Directorate for Analysis, Defense Intelligence Agency, Washington, DC.

3. Davis, E.W. (2010), "Concepts for Extracting Energy from the Quantum Vacuum," Defense Intelligence Reference Document, Acquisition Threat Support, DIA-08-1004-007, Acquisition Support Division (DWO-3), Defense Warning office, Directorate for Analysis, Defense Intelligence Agency, Washington, DC.

4. Davis, E.W. (2010), "Antigravity for Aerospace Applications," Defense Intelligence Reference Document, Acquisition Threat Support, DIA-08-1003-018, Acquisition Support Division (DWO-3), Defense Warning Office, Directorate for Analysis, Defense Intelligence Agency, Washington, DC.

5. Davis, E.W. (2010), "Traversable Wormholes, Stargates, and Negative Energy," Defense Intelligence Reference Document, Acquisition Threat Support, DIA-08-1004-004, Acquisition Support Division (DWO-3), Defense Warning Officer, Directorate for Analysis, Defense Intelligence Agency, Washington, DC.

6. Davis, E.W. (2011). "Quantum Tomography of Negative Energy States in the Vacuum," Defense Intelligence Reference Document, Defense Futures, DIA-0801102-007, Technology Warning Division (DWO-4), Defense Warning Office, Directorate for Analysis, Defense Intelligence Agency, Washington, DC.

Have we seen any of these 38 DIRD's?

We have seen three. Two written by Davis, namely, DIA-08-1004-004 dated 6 April 2010; and DIA-08-1004-001 dated 2 April 2010. The earliest appearance of these two documents can be traced back to a website operated by US researcher Corey Goode. They appear in an item written dated 18 December 2017.




How do we know these are copies of the real, original documents? Isaac Koi posed this question to Eric W Davis by email; together with a copy of the two documents. Davis confirmed they were his documents.

The third DIRD, this one written by Hal Puthoff surfaced on 5 May 2018 as a link within a report by George Knapp and Matt Adams  It was DIA-08-1003-015 titled "Advanced Space Propulsion Based on Vacuum (Spacetime Metric) Engineering" and dated 29 March 2010.


How do we know this is one of the 38 prepared DIRD's? I emailed Hal Puthoff; sent him a copy of the document, and he confirmed by return email that it was his original DIRD..

In summary

In summary, we know there were 38 DIRD's prepared. We have the titles of seven of these, and a full copy of three.

Have we knowledge of any other information on these DIRD's?

1.On his website Corey Goode stated that at one point he had the two Davis DIRD's above, plus three others (not described) but these three others had been stolen from him (no others details given.)

2.A search of the Internet brings up copies of the two Davis DIA-08-1004-004 dated 6 April 2010; and DIA-08-1004-001 dated 2 April 2010.and one Puhoff  DIA-08-1003-015 DIRDs already described above.

3. Hal Puthoff published a paper with the same title as his DIRD, "Advanced Space Propulsion Based on Vacuum (Spacetime Metric) Engineering" in 2010 in the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society.

4. In a talk entitled "Empty Space: The Multilayered, Multicolored Superconductor," by Eric W Davis at a conference titled "Modern Topics in Energy and Power", US Army Research Laboratory, in August 2016, referenced two DIRDs, namely DIA-08-1004-007 and DIA-08-1102-007, both of which we were already aware of, from Davis' Earth Tech DIRD list.

5. I searched the US website for the Defense Technical Information Centre for any of these DIRDs. There were two documents, dated 2004,  by Eric W Davis concerning "Teleportation Physics Study" and "Advanced Propulsion Study." However, I was unable to locate any of the six 2010/2011 Davis DIRDs or the one by Puthoff on this website.

Update: 12 June 2018

A correspondent asked me what questions I would like answered about these DIRDs? My reply was:


1. Where did the funding come from for the work on the DIRD's? Was it directly from the DIA? From BAASS? From some other source?

2. When was the request received for the DIRD work to commence? Who asked for the work to be undertaken?

3. How many DIRD's were completed? How many were classified?

4. Who gave a number of DIRD's to Corey Goode? Why?

5. Who gave a copy of one DIRD to George Knapp? Why?

6. Who has a complete set of the DIRDs? Hal Puthoff? Eric Davis? Anyone else?

7. Has anyone obtained copies of all the DIRDs via an FOIA request?

8. Who are the authors of the non Puthoff; non Davis DIRDs?

4 comments:

  1. It's interesting Puthoff has published more or less the same article in JBIS without mentioning any funding by anyone for example. It was also published there in "March 2010" issue, but it's unclear when that was published and when he had submitted the text. It would be interesting to know if he did that paper because of the program, or just got some money for something he would have done anyway.

    Have you tried to check if some content from those other publicly available papers has been similarly published elsewhere?

    That DIA-0801102-007 would be an interesting paper to have for the reason it was published in 2011, so it should reveal who was the AAWSA program manager at that time.

    I just posted my analysis of what AAWSAP/AATIP was (I'm also referring to this and some of your other interesting posts, so thank you for those), and it seems to me these papers may have been kind of a smokescreen for arranging government funding for Bigelow's "NIDS 2.0". That paper from 2011 would help to establish the timeline when exactly AAWSAP turned into AATIP and at what stage Elizondo took charge:

    1. Thank you for these comments. Actually, I haven't thought to check if some content from the other publicly available papers has been published elsewhere. A little task to undertake in due course. I am hoping that the talks at the current Las Vegas conference will shine some more light on the numerous questions we all have.

  2. The paper by Hal Puthoff was also posted to his arXiv page:
    https://arxiv.org/abs/1204.2184

    You can also find about a dozen other pre-prints that Hal Puthoff wrote here: https://arxiv.org/search/?searchtype=author&query=Puthoff%2C+H+E

    1. Hi Kent, thanks for this information. I will now take a look at the pre-prints.
