The Black Vault Launches TBV Investigations for UFO Research

The Black Vault Launches TBV Investigations for UFO Research

     For the past couple of years, I have developed an idea to bring together investigators and researchers to tackle the UFO Phenomenon. To sum it all up – TBV Investigations has the potential to be the largest assembled group of participants to investigate this phenomenon… ever. But it needs your help to achieve that goal.

My involvement in the UFO field has lasted more than 21 years and it is still going strong. I have been responsible for requesting and archiving more than 1.7 MILLION pages of U.S. Government documents, and distributing them freely to anyone who wants them

on the internet. The UFO phenomenon has always been the most popular and most sought after of the documents that I have ever put online, and The Black Vault has become a popular spot for UFO enthusiasts.

During this time frame, I have seen many UFO groups come and go, and I have seen many researchers/investigators get frustrated even to the point of leaving the field entirely over the politics and the material being presented.

My aim with this project is to change that.

TBV Investigations offers a massive technological infrastructure to use for this endeavor. This includes:
A Public Case File Database – This case file database, is the public’s tool for perusing the case files. Everything all investigators create and want to share can go into this database to show the public who we are, and what we do.

No work is ever hidden or shielded behind a pay wall. The case file database has maps to pinpoint a sighting location, ability to embed video(s), photographs, galleries, and much more.

A Case Ticketing System – Behind the scenes, I have built a case ticketing system that tracks each and every case that comes in. Each investigator has access to this system with a unique login:password. The system has the ability to assign a case to one person, or investigators can build a team of 3, 10, 100, even 1,000 people to collaborate on. Each member then gets to see and add information to the cases they have been assigned. Investigators can message each other, add personal notes that no one else sees, and they can communicate directly with the witness, all from one advanced system.

An advanced “Toll Free” Telephone System – To report a case, the general public can also use a TOLL FREE hotline to call in, and report their case. During this process, the system will ask for them to type in their state, and once they do, their call will be routed to the appropriate investigator, or TEAM of investigators (meaning, an entire group of phones spread out across America will ring – and the call goes to the first one available to answer). The system allows investigators to work TOGETHER, all while no one person is getting overloaded with a workload that isn’t manageable, or desirable.
This system offers investigators a way to have unlimited long distance calling to conduct their case work (and I invite participants to use it for personal calls as well), the ability to RECORD a phone call with the push of a button, and it includes all the free calling features like conference calling, caller ID, call waiting, etc.

I have assembled a very small group of likeminded individuals, from various backgrounds, to help me finalize the nuts and bolts of how this will work. They all have been instrumental in helping me get this project off the ground. You will meet them all very soon.

At this stage, now it’s time to launch. But, I need the SERIOUS investigators who will want to take part in this to make it all work. There are many different ways you can help, and helping does not always mean you have to be “in the field” – so don’t hesitate to reach out and tell me any aspect you’d like to be involved.

This includes in part (and in no particular order):
• Interviewing witnesses

• Field Investigation

• Report Writing

• Case Data Entry

• Fielding Phone Calls

• Organizing Case Loads
If you are interested, please send a message to me at: contact@theblackvault.com Tell me about yourself, your background, and why you’d want to take part. I’d love to pay everyone, but know in advance this is simply volunteer, with many working parts.

I know there are many “UFO Research Groups” out there with great people that have produced great results. I am not trying to compete, but rather, I want to add a new approach. I have brought together my experience for the past 21 years, not only with computers to build the technical side, but as a researcher, and I see what is needed, and why.

That’s what TBV Investigations is all about.

I feel this is unique enough to launch it, powerful enough to achieve results, and much needed by the general public to see hard work, in a transparent environment.

You can help make it the success I know it can be! I look forward to hearing from you!

Interested? Drop an email to: contact@theblackvault.com and let me know you want to hear more.

debates and conversations regarding government-induced disinformation campaigns. Doty claims his innocence, and was even the subject of the documentary film "Mirage Men," which focused on government's most infamous cover-ups of alleged UFO cases. Critics claim he ruined some people's lives, namely Paul Bennewitz who was eventually placed in a mental health institute after extreme paranoia after being given supposed hoaxed documents by Doty to help discredit and turn away Bennewitz's UFO research.

One UFO researcher referred to Doty as "the biggest liar in the world", so, we reached out to Doty to try to set the record straight. Everyone has a side of the story and a voice that deserves to be heard.

US Air Force Confirms, Unidentified Aircraft Flew Through US Skies; F-15C Interceptor Fighters Were Scrambled

THE US Air Force admits it. Something strange flew through US skies, startling flyers and spurring the launch of jets.
     On October 25, an unidentified aircraft was seen flying — in broad daylight — among the airliners in one of the United States’ heavily trafficked air corridors in the skies above Oregon.

It had no submitted flight plan. It had no identification transponder active. Nor was it transmitting collision avoidance signals.

Air traffic control stations were reportedly having difficulty following it on radar.

[...]

At first it sounded like a typical example of an aircraft suffering communications failure.

But then came news, via Reddit, that US air force F-15C interceptor fighters had been launched in response to the sightings.

UFO Sightings: Is the Government Withholding An Interest in Alien Life?

UFO Recorded On a FLIR Camera BY The Chilean Navy 11-11-14
This article, along with others exploring the possibilities of alien life and other mysteries hidden beyond the stars, is featured in Newsweek's Special Edition: Life Beyond Earth? The Mission to Find the Answer.
     In December 1969, the United States government called for the end of Project Blue Book, its 22-year investigation into unidentified airborne phenomena. Overnight, the authorities’ official position changed from one of indulgent public curiosity to absolute public

disinterest. “The Air Force was the head agency during Project Blue Book, where they went out into the field and talked to witnesses, essentially trying to figure out what was going on,” explains John Greenewald, founder of The Black Vault, an Internet-based resource that has compiled more than 1.4 million declassified government documents. “After 1969, it was the United States Air Force that said, ‘no government agency including our own has any interest in this phenomenon.’” But thanks to the dogged effort of Greenewald and other UFO researchers wielding Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, anyone with an Internet connection and an open mind can deduce the government isn’t quite as apathetic toward UFOs as it claims.

One curious item indicative of the cat-and-mouse game Greenewald feels the government plays with UFO researchers was an entry in an Air Force training manual discovered through a FOIA request. “I discovered, about eight to 10 years ago now, an Air Force regulation, Air Force Instruction 10-206,” Greenewald says. “It deals with what to do if pilots see something strange in the sky and how they have to report it. The rule was a short list of things to look for—for example if they saw a missile streak across the sky, that was outlined as something they would need to report. On this very short list was the entry, ‘Unidentified Flying Objects.’ Obviously we’re talking about 30 or more years after their investigation was stopped.”

F-15's Scrambled Over Mystery Aircraft

F-15's Scrambled Over Mystery Aircraft

     Something quite out of the ordinary occurred in the skies over Oregon on October 25th, 2017. A mystery aircraft was flying in daylight hours among the steady stream of airliners that traverse from south to north, between locales in California and Nevada and cities

like Portland and Seattle and beyond. The incident began, at least as best we can tell, around 4:30pm near the California-Oregon border and resulted in multiple pilot eyewitnesses, recorded air traffic control audio, and eventual confirmations from both the FAA and North American Aerospace Command (NORAD) that it did indeed occur.

[...]

NORAD's reply was quick and clear. An incident involving multiple airline crews, air traffic control, and F-15Cs from the 142nd Fighter Wing based out of Portland did occur. According to the limited information NORAD supplied, airliner pilots were asked by FAA air traffic controllers to help track and possibly identify a "white aircraft" traveling in the flightlevels nearby—roughly between 35,000 and 40,000 feet based on the radio recordings. NORAD also said that the incident did result in F-15s from Portland being scrambled to investigate, but by the time they got up and "looked around" the mystery aircraft couldn't be found.

Tom DeLonge, Serial Deleter

     By now you probably have heard all about rocker Tom DeLonge, formerly of Blink 182, and his long-promised "UFO announcement" on October 11 that turned out to be nothing more than a fund-raising scheme to provide income for him and his colleagues, with whatever money that might be left "invested" in wacky pseudo-scientific research, like a faster-than light spaceship.

Now that a few weeks have passed since that famous announcement, we are getting a clearer picture of DeLonge, and his

The UFO Phenomenon and Close Encounters of the Third Kind – 40th Anniversary

Close Encounters Poster
A cinematic marvel that inspired directors of the sci-fi genre, this month marks forty years since the release of Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It was also an integral component of the American UFO and abduction phenomenon in the late 20th century, which significantly increased public awareness and interest in extraterrestrial existence.

     Sightings of unidentified flying objects can be traced as far back as 500 B.C., but the culture surrounding UFOs and alien abductions we know today began in the early 1940s. In between the 40s and the 1977 release of Close Encounters, major events such as the Roswell Incident of ’47 and mysterious government projects (Project Sign, Project Grudge, and Project Blue Book) occurred.
