Upcoming interview with Kevin Day. Do you have any thoughts or questions?

#2
I had a very similar experience, engaging an anomalous aircraft as an officer in the Navy, which you can read about here: Not so Fast: Anatomy of a Skeptic Hack Job.

Some juicy probative questions... :): (Modified now that I have listened to the Coast to Coast show)

1. Did CIC light off the SPG-62 or any form of F/A-18F's or other semi-active missile fire control system to help ascertain the contact(s) in addition to the SPS-49/SPY-1? and if so, did that targeting beam confirm back as a solid ping? Or was the painting intermittent?

2. If you painted the contact(s), did it react in any way to that specialized EM energy? or just to the presence of the CAP.

3. I presume that the contact(s) did not squawk any form of IFF code.

4. Did the contact(s) 'enter' your air warning engagement envelope, or simply 'appear' inside it and light off the AAWC and AIC consoles?

5. How did the TAO react to the presence of the datum apart from asking the F/A-18's loadout? Did she call the Captain to CIC over this or warm any missile fire control system electricals? Did she or the Captain use any sort of red phone (HICOM) to report the datum beyond just the scene commander?

6. Did the TAO place the SLQ-32 in any kind of special detect mode - or did the SLQ-32 operator notify you of any odd signals? If you had a TAO, then the SLQ-32 had to be manned.

7. Was there pilot visual confirmation or FLiR image, coincident with an active radar return on the ships combat systems? or were they always at different times?

8. Did the contact(s) return any kind of signal flux in the EM return back to the AN/SPY-1, which you had to adjust any phased array settings in order to discriminate their presence better?

9. Did the contact(s) all react to the presence of CAP aircraft approaching in exactly the same fashion? Was that reaction defensive or playful or neutral-to-avoiding?

10. When you broke off engagement, and showed no longer any interest in the craft, did it appear to want to draw the group back into a cat and mouse game? or just stay neutral-to-avoiding

11. Did the pilot try any form of direct 121.5 or 122.2 MHz contact with the target(s)?

12. Was there a specific junior officer on the ship who seemed to be assigned special interest documenting this incident(s) afterwards?

OK probably enough from me on this....

Some juicy probative questions... :):

1. Was the targeting engagement feed of any form of Standard SM-2/3, F/A-18 or other semi-active fire control system used to ascertain the contact as well? and further then confirm back as a solid ping? Or was the painting intermittent?
1a. If you painted the contact, did it react in any form to that specialized EM energy?

2. If so, was the AN/SPY-1 air search array in agreement with this targeting feed? And was the datum and vector of the contact in agreement between systems?

3. I presume that the contact did not squawk any form of IFF code.

4. Did the contact 'enter' your air warning engagement envelope, or simply 'appear' inside it and light off the AAWC and AIC consoles?

5. How did the TAO or Air Boss react to the presence of the datum? Did he use any sort of red phone to report the datum beyond just the scene commander?

6. Did your NTDS system maintain a recording of the engagement sequence, which you could roll back and review later - did they do this that you know of?

7. Was there pilot visual confirmation, coincident with the Link 11/14 sharing of the contact's datum between all platforms in the group?

8. Did the datum return any kind of signal flux in the EM return back to the AN/SPY-1, which you had to adjust the phased array for?

9. Did the datum react to the presence of CAP aircraft approaching? Was that reaction defensive or playful?

10. When you broke off engagement, and showed no longer any interest in the craft, did it appear to want to draw the group back into a cat and mouse game?

11. Did the pilot try any form of direct 121.5 or 122.2 MHz contact with the target?

Reading the story at the link Adam provided, it reminded me of the Project Chameleo story covered on the Higherside Chats a few years back.

The TL;DR on that story is the harassment of an individual spanning years due to being at the wrong party, at the wrong time, and his association with another party-goer using classified military hardware recently acquired from a nearby base in San Diego.

The question I'd tee-up is, has he considered that the love and light conclusions he came away with from the experience might be part of the play book of the surviellence he is experiencing? Sometimes it gets the stick, sometimes it gets the carrot, etc.

Reading books like Project Beta by Greg Bishop, the infinite ways people can be influenced/controlled once they are a mark, either through infrasound (would explain his anxiety and sleep problems), good ol' intimidation, or techniques unknown, would make a person wonder whether the thoughts in their head are their own.

very cool! I'm very interested in the counterfeited spirituality angle
