US Government UAP-Related Program/Activity Reporting
AARO is accepting reports from current or former U.S. Government employees, service members, or contractor personnel with direct knowledge of U.S. Government programs or activities related to UAP dating back to 1945*.  These reports will be used to inform AARO’s congressionally directed Historical Record Report.

This form is intended as an initial point of contact with AARO; it is not intended for conveying potentially sensitive or classified information.  Following the submission of your report, AARO staff may reach out to request additional detail or arrange for an informational interview.
* By law, AARO may receive all UAP-related information, including any classified national security information involving military, intelligence, and intelligence-related activities, at all levels of classification regardless of any restrictive access controls, special access programs, or compartmented access programs.  Moreover, there is no restriction to AARO receiving any past or present UAP-related information, regardless of the organizational affiliation of the original classification authority within DoD, the Intelligence Community, or any other U.S. Government department or agency. Any classified national security information may be provided to AARO in a secure location, but may not be provided through this form. Do not submit classified national security information or unclassified information that is not publicly releasable (e.g. subject to export control regulations) through this form.
