UAP Resources


While The Windbridge Institute does not currently host an active Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) research program, the topic has drawn increasing interest from psi researchers and the general public. In response, we have created a simple resource page that features relevant articles, videos, books, etc. Since a vast amount of material covers this topic, we have decided to focus this page on contemporary content relating to the most recent disclosures in the United States. This page is a work in progress and will be updated as new materials become available.

Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena
[Open PDF in New Tab]

“This report provides an overview for policymakers of the challenges associated with characterizing the potential threat posed by UAP while also providing a means to develop relevant processes, policies, technologies, and training for the U.S. military and other U.S. Government (USG) personnel if and when they encounter UAP, so as to enhance the Intelligence Community’s (IC) ability to understand the threat. The Director, UAPTF, is the accountable official for ensuring the timely collection and consolidation of data on UAP. The dataset described in this report is currently limited primarily to U.S. Government reporting of incidents occurring from November 2004 to March 2021. Data continues to be collected and analyzed.”

We Have a Real UFO Problem. And It’s Not Balloons.
[Open Article in New Tab]

“America’s fixation on the recent objects floating over the country overlooks a much more serious problem with advanced technology aircraft that we can’t explain. And that’s a problem. Advanced objects demonstrating cutting-edge technology that we cannot explain are routinely flying over our military bases or entering restricted airspace.”

Ryan Graves, a former Navy fighter pilot, and engineer, chairs the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics’ UAP Integration & Outreach Committee and is the founder of the new non-profit Americans for Safe Aerospace (

UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record
by Leslie Kean

From the Publisher:
“Kean reviewed hundreds of government documents, aviation reports, radar data, and case studies with corroborating physical evidence. She carefully examined scientifically analyzed photographs and interviewed dozens of high-level officials and aviation witnesses from around the world. With the support of former White House chief of staff John Podesta, Kean draws on her research to separate fact from fiction and to lift the veil on decades of U.S. government misinformation. Throughout, she presents irrefutable evidence that unknown flying objects—metallic, luminous, and seemingly able to maneuver in ways that defy the laws of physics—actually exist.”

Skinwalkers at the Pentagon: An Insiders' Account of the Secret Government UFO Program
by Colm A. Kelleher

From the Publisher:
Skinwalkers at the Pentagon unmasks the massive scope of the Pentagon’s landmark UFO study that ran from the Defense Intelligence Agency in Washington, D.C. The Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications Program, or AAWSAP investigated the 'Tic Tac' and other 'nuts and bolts' UFO events, analyzed intrusions of UFOs onto US military bases, as well as probed the plethora of bizarre phenomena that government investigators encountered on Skinwalker Ranch. Written by two program insiders and a respected journalist, Skinwalkers at the Pentagon comes to a conclusion that has never before been revealed!”

American Cosmic: UFOs, Religion, Technology
by D.W. Pasulka

From the Publisher:
“More than half of American adults and more than seventy-five percent of young Americans believe in intelligent extraterrestrial life. Over the course of a six-year ethnographic study, D.W. Pasulka interviewed successful and influential scientists, professionals, and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who believe in extraterrestrial intelligence, thereby disproving the common misconception that only fringe members of society believe in UFOs. American Cosmic explores the intriguing question of how people interpret unexplainable experiences, and argues that the media is replacing religion as a cultural authority that offers believers answers about non-human intelligent life.”

FORBIDDEN SCIENCE 2: California Hermetica, The Journals of Jacques Vallee 1970-1979 
by Jacques Vallee

From the Publisher:
“With the end game in Vietnam and the turpitudes of Watergate in the background, the major topic of this second volume in the journals of Jacques Vallee is paranormal research. Vallee relates his behind-the-scenes experiences in California during the 1970s as the Human Potential Movement emerged, the Internet developed, and parapsychology secretly entered the physics laboratory. And all the while, as Vallee continued his examination of UFO encounters, the links to older mysteries became increasingly clear.”

Selected Research

Yingling, M.E., Yingling, C.W. & Bell, B.A. Faculty perceptions of unidentified aerial phenomena. Humanit Soc Sci Commun 10, 246 (2023).

“Results demonstrated that faculty think the academic evaluation of UAP information and more academic research on this topic is important. Curiosity outweighed skepticism or indifference. Overwhelmingly and regardless of discipline, faculty were aware of reports but not legislation. Faculty varied in personal explanations for UAP, and nearly one-fifth reported UAP observations. We discuss the implications of these results for the future of the academic study of UAP.”

Mossbridge, J.A. (2022, Sept. 12). What’s UAPS? The UAP Science ecosystem — United States. Medium.

“With support from the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU), I’ve provided a map of the ecosystem for interested academics, government agencies, investors, donors, and others who are hoping for an organized introduction to UAP science in the United States. After the tables, I’m happy to share my more subjective observations — and maybe have a little fun.”

Eghigian G. (2017). Making UFOs make sense: Ufology, science, and the history of their mutual mistrust. Public understanding of science (Bristol, England)26(5), 612–626.

From the abstract:
“This study examines the historical sources of the mutual mistrust between ufologists and scientists. It demonstrates that any science doubt surrounding unidentified flying objects and aliens was not primarily due to the ignorance of ufologists about science, but rather a product of the respective research practices of and relations between ufology, the sciences, and government investigative bodies.”

“As we hope will become clear, the bewildering complexity of the UFO phenomenon is not only impossible to capture from within a single academic discipline, but also seems to transcend all of them combined. Any deeper understanding seems to have been found only within realms that stand between the academic disciplines and currents of thought that have long lain outside of, or at least unspoken within, the academy.”
