Blink-182 singer Tom DeLonge’s UFO research, called To the Stars Academy (TTSA), signed an agreement with the U.S. Army to study and develop advanced materials for beamed propulsion, inertial mass reduction and more.
Online sources indicate that Tom DeLonge has a net worth of about $80 million. Blink-182 sold over 25 million records.
TTSA agrees to share its discoveries with the Army’s GVSC and Ground Vehicle Survivability and Protection (GVSP) programs while the Army furnishes Delonge’s crack team of researchers with “laboratories, expertise, support, and resources to help characterize the technologies and its applications.”
“Our partnership with TTSA serves as an exciting, non-traditional source for novel materials and transformational technologies to enhance our military ground system capabilities,” Dr. Joseph Cannon of the nascent Army Futures Command said in the press release. “At the Army’s Ground Vehicle Systems Center, we look forward to this partnership and the potential technical innovations forthcoming.”
There is no money changing hands between the Army and TTSA. There is sharing of some resources and results.
To the Stars Academy Science Division is a theoretical and experimental laboratory that seeks to challenge conventional thinking and discover the next-generation of physics. We have access to world-renowned scientists with advanced knowledge to pursue the company’s research projects, which include quantum communication technology, the A.D.A.M. (Acquisition & Data Analysis of Materials) Research Project, and THE VAULT (formerly the Community of Interest).
The company’s Aerospace Division is dedicated to finding revolutionary breakthroughs in propulsion, energy, and communication. We are currently working with lead engineers from major Department of Defense and aerospace companies with the capability to pursue an advanced engineering approach to fundamental aerospace topics like Beamed-Energy Propulsion Launch Systems (“BELS”), Space-Time Metrics Engineering (“STME”), and warp-drive metrics.
To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science is at the forefront of socializing the UFO conversation through entertainment media in the public and though leveraging the power of our team’s relationships. To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science allowed its personnel to be key cast members in a six-part docu-series on A+E’s History Channel, which includes licensed footage from the company’s film archive.
Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation is based on the December 2017 New York Times stunning front-page expose uncovering the Pentagon’s mysterious UFO program, the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (“AATIP”) featuring an interview with former military intelligence official, Luis Elizondo, who ran the program. The controversial story was the focus of worldwide attention.
Over 1 million people tuned in to each episode in the series that follows Luis Elizondo (Director of Global Security & Special Programs) speaking out for the first time with Tom DeLonge (Co-founder and President) and Chris Mellon (Advisor and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence) to expose a series of startling encounters, fascinating new investigations and bringing this information to powerful National Security policymakers in Congress.
They have annotated videos on UFOs that have been viewed over 9 million times.
They may be looking at the patents of Salvatore Cezar Pais. Salvatore is a US Navy researcher. Salvatore has three amazing patents that would be incredible breakthroughs in physics if they are true. The least extreme is a patent for Piezoelectricity-Induced Room Temperature Superconductor. The other two patents are gravity wave generator and inertial mass reduction.
If these could be realized as technologies then we are talking Star Trek level spaceships. The gravitational wave generator could be used for propellantless propulsion to near the speed of light. Being able to reduce inertia would also mean capabilities that currently seem beyond known physics.

Nope. Neither of those is the government admitting that UFO’s are something real. What happened earlier this year was the US Navy admitting that the flying, maneuvering object seen by a variety of people in the 2004 USS Nimitz incident are of unknown origin and method of propulsion. Such an admission is unprecedented.
Really? You think I haven’t thought about it? In any case, the only intellectually honest answer is I don’t know. Until we have one we can reverse engineer, no one does. I get the popularity of the alien theory, but I’m trying to stay open.
Kelly, think about this, these craft are not man made, period. This technology is so far ahead of what we have that no other conclusion is possible. So if they are not man made then are they not Alien made?
The interview is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCaruUtiPHo
In 1900 they had telephony and photography and had a vision of video-telephony. They knew about radio waves and the photovoltaic effect. They’d very quickly realize the smartphone appeared to be a hyper-advanced radio-telephone with an ‘electrical camera’ and ‘electrical image surface’. Examining smartphone materials – plastics and strong, thin, flexible glass – would quickly demonstrate that this wasn’t a simple hoax, even if they never saw it operating.
They had good microscopes that would let them examine the display and camera chip(s) and grasp how they must work. Analyzing the complex materials from such a small samples would slow imitation, but inspire attempts to develop functional equivalents.
Cutting open chip packages, they’d see fine conductors leading to the chips and realize those impossibly complex patterns must be circuits. They already knew of the solid-state diode. That would give them a big clue to start studying silicon’s electrical properties, probably getting them the transistor within a decade and crude integrated circuits not long after.
By studying the Li-Ion battery they’d jump battery tech ahead decades and possibly save the original electric car.
However, I doubt they’d realize it was a programmable computer until they independently came up with that idea and then realized computers can do more than manipulate numbers.
that’s about twice the amount predicted with fission powered rockets they were thinking of using to explore near by planets in the 60-70’s that could travel up to 10% of light speed.
which if they had built any, we’d probably be seeing the disappointing images real soon.
bad analogy, the cave man.
a better would be giving a group of turn of the century engineers scientists & researchers an Iphone or home PC. they’d be able to figure a little, like pushing buttons, that it uses electricity, and deduce a few of the electronic component’s purposes, maybe even how to construct a few of the few they figure out the purpose of.
Exactly! They have publicly admitted that they don’t know what these things are. When has that ever happened ever?
Where is this interview?
They have officially said that the objects flying around, that they hadn’t identified are unidentified flying objects.
This doesn’t tell us anything.
I am game. Lets look at wild speculation however. So…Chinese craft testing out the stuff that the us navy has been filing patents on. And the source of the navy patents is stolen tech.
But thats base speculation with some basis-specifically that the US Navy stated to the patent office that China has this tech already. Odds? I would say as high as 4% of me being correct.
The US Navy officially confirming that the object in the video is a UFO is fact, not speculation. The Navy did that.
Yeah, but that’s what speculation is though. I’m after opinions not data. Pointless as it may be.
Software…that fools the Navy pilots flying the F/A-18 that recorded the video? I think you’re missing the headline here. The U.S. Navy has *officially* stated that the object seen in the video is a UFO — as in it’s a flying object of unknown nature and origin. And unknown method of flight since there is no heat plume on that infrared video.
I might not have all the information but the lack of first hand observations seems daunting. Just because a heads up display or a video screen sees something means little to me. That can be software. With so many cameras in the wild now why no sightings?
I went through this in detail just a couple of weeks ago.
In short: Give a caveman a crashed fighter jet, and he (or rather the wisest people in the tribe working over a couple of generations) should be able to work out
Note that this really has very little to do with what we consider to be the technology of a fighter jet, just the boring everyday stuff that the pilot was wearing.
It’s not. That was you quoting my description. Notice the lack of quotes in the OP.
Did you watch Commander Fravor’s interview?
I can’t find that quote at any of the links.
Nope. Insufficient data. We need to learn more.
Are you willing to speculate on what it is then if not aliens?
And this is Commander Fravor’s description of his encounter. I get that this is causing many of you a great deal of cognitive dissonance but what is, is.
This is the original video taken from David Fravor’s F/A-18 in 2004. The video has full chain of custody from the Navy.
Not this time.
Okay. But what the Navy pilots encountered — as seen in the video, as described by the pilots, and as *officially* acknowledged by the US Navy (see the link) — was “intelligently piloted vehicles that exhibited flight abilities that exceed ours by a wide margin.”
The easy and obvious way to the stars is fusion. Every thing else is sci-fi. An high mass ratio fusion rocket can get from 10% -20% the speed of light, which is enough to get to the near by stars in an enhanced human lifespan. By the time we can build a starship, our lifespan will be decades longer than it is now.
I don’t see the harm in this type of “research”. Heck maybe they even stumble on some type of real effect. It looks like at least part of their research is based on real physics, so I don’t think it hurts to explore those areas that don’t get a lot of funding or attention currently.
There are some EMdrive presentations going on at IAC right now, so maybe more info soon.
It means marsh gas, if memory serves.
UFO doesn’t mean “intelligently piloted vehicles that exhibited flight abilities that exceed ours by a wide margin”.
It means “unidentified flying object”
That’s what the word means. The rest is speculation.
Shawyer is a crank who doesn’t understand physics
The last few years have certainly been very very odd when it comes to fringe physics concepts getting mainstream attention. i would also put the allegedly positive results from the NIAC program looking into the mach effect under Prof. Fearn and Woodward into that category. Will any of it have applicable results? I don’t know. Skepticism is very much warranted-these are extraordinary claims and must meet a steep burden of proof.
And no, UFO does not mean alien spacecraft. It means the jets encountered intelligently piloted vehicles that exhibited flight abilities that exceed ours by a wide margin, and that’s all. No judgement as to how or why or who is implied. Just that such craft exist.
You do know that the Navy has officially acknowledged the videos of the Navy jet encounters show genuine UFO’s, right?
Such confidence. Give a caveman a cell phone and see how long it takes for him to learn anything from it. Even a century ago, most of the technology in the cell phone would be inaccessible.
And if they did somehow figure out how to duplicate some of the hardware, they would likely never understand the purpose because of the missing network.
Aliens could hand their technology to us and spend the next decade explaining how it works to us and we might be no closer to figuring out how to copy it. Not because we’re dumber than them, but because we have too much missing context.
Our laws of physics explicitly prohibit many of the technologies from existing. If they exist, a lot of math needs to be redone.
National flags come in excess of twelve unique proportions, from the splendidly square Switzerland to the extended Qatar, the main Flags whose width is more than twice its tallness. Be that as it may, at the Olympics, for reasonableness, they are no different.
Reading the list of areas at the END of the article – the shared research is cutting edge (meta-materials and materials analysis, quantum communication, beamed energy propulsion and active camouflage) rather than the fringe theories in body of the article (inertial mass reduction, warp-drive).
“There is no money changing hands between the Army and TTSA. There is sharing of some resources and results.” So, TTSA gets some high profile publicity and can show things off to the Army – if they work. The Army gets low cost and low risk access to anything that does work out.
The most surprising thing is that the Army isn’t wasting money on this.
I’ve been trying to get a crada from the Army. I’m not movie star so I didnt get VIP treatment. They didn’t give my company a memo of understanding even thought we have real meritorious super materials technology. They are wasting the Army’s time with pseudoscientific mumbo jumbo. All those warp drives are wishful thinking with no real scientific basis.
Some of it has produced (minor) results.
EM Drive has thrust according to White but it’s within a margin of error. They’re curious enough to do more tests. Roger Shawyer is working on newer versions with orders of magnitude more thrust. I’m sure there will be a line of people wanting to test those designs.
Q-drive – I’m not sure. Not much info.
White has done some tests on so called “warp fields”. His team has been theorising/testing how much energy it takes to warp S-T. He’s lowered the hypothetical energy requirements considerably, opening the door for more tests. I believe he has “warped” S-T in the lab. Don’t quote me on that though.
All interesting stuff, but I’ll be excited when someone tests these concepts in the field. In the meantime, VASIMIR.
Hmmm, reminds me of the Q-thruster/EM drive research by Harold White, Martin Tajmar and others (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_vacuum_thruster, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RF_resonant_cavity_thruster).
What has become of those? And didn’t it all begin with the Mach-Woodward effect?
Aren’t people here not just trying to repeat the same mistakes, uh, I mean experiments?
Let’s first produce some measurable and verifiable results from those.
do it in a controlled manner with a cow, he could work in a butchery…
apply it to gold bars before I buy them…
Inertial mass reduction sound promising… like you get inside the cardboard box, tape the lid shut, then though the magic of physics make the box generate thrust in a forward direction and float around like a ufo…
I bet if Tom Delonge stared at a goat long enough he could make it explode with his mind
So what do you think David Fravor and co really saw up there that day?
Is it really a case of malfunctioning instruments?
I personally don’t believe in aliens (see Fermi Paradox).
No idea, but even if it’s technology imported from Vulcan or Tatooine, it needs to follow falsifiability and peer review if we are talking about public research.
If they fail to produce testable devices and only create sci/fi inspired patents or press releases, it’s most likely a scam and the people behind it can be prosecuted, if public money spending is involved.
Private money?, well, they can create the Church of the Flying Saucers for all I care. It’s their money.
It really is in the interface between the two where the problems might arise.
They seem to be careful about that part, though, but I’d keep an eye how these things fare later.
boondoggle or funding scam, my question is what is the motive behind the UFO story. Somebody explain to me where this is really going or why. It can’t just be a funding ploy can it?
more productive scanning all Star Trek shows for ideas not yet brought into ‘reality’…
