NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE – November 10, 2011 – Had one not been familiar with the official background on such subjects, they might have quickly nominated a certain gentleman ( reported about below ) to receive a U.S. Academy Award ‘secondary prize’ of ‘free mental health treatment’, but after carefully considering this subject to be reported, some may see where ‘this particular information’ certainly ‘pushes the envelope of reality’ – beyond where most professionals never venture.

History may someday reveal more about what the now-late William Uhouse, a mechanical engineer ( 1966 – 1979 ), outlined surrounding ‘official U.S. government contract “business agreements” relating to ’private-sector’ high-risk work involving, amongst a myriad of others, engineering companies, contractors, sub-contractors, engineering consultants and engineers hired to perform extremely dangerous high-risk work involving secret hazards surrounding such work.

Disclosure, for the most-part, is predominantly not a favorite intelligence past time, for the less private-sector individuals know about what surrounds their contracted task assignments, all the better can government maintain its secrets  – until something goes terribly wrong on a U.S. government contractor job site.

A classic example of what could go wrong was presented by a patriotic American, the now-late ( deceased ) Paul Philip Schneider (aka) Phil Schneider, an engineering consultant hired by MORRISON-KNUDSEN INC. ( Tulsa, Okalahoma ) – a sub-contractor company for CER GEONUCLEAR CORP. ( Tulsa, Oklahoma ) that was a subsidiary of the U.S. government contractor company EG&G that maintained a super secret facility building on the ground inside a U.S. government highly restricted Range Test Site ( RTS ) known as the infamously spooky Area 51 near Groom lake, Nevada.

Much like Paul P. Schneider, William Uhouse –  another engineer – at a very late stage in his lifetime began revealing – and consequently became more comfortable ( to ‘some degree’ ) about what he revealed his first-hand knowledge of – and that was, at least ‘four’ ( 4 ) ‘Extraterrestrial Biological Entities’ ( EBE ) commonly referred to as  “Extra-Terrestrials” (aka) ETs (aka) aliens held under U.S. government command directives issued to work alongside private-sector engineers cleared to work on secret-sensitive classified government Programs and Projects at specifically selected locations.

See what I mean? Sounds just like “government conspiracy” material. Well, that too was my initial knee-jerk reaction while I was simultaneously pondering an the ‘free mental health treatment’ prize for ( were he still alive ) Uhouse, however in-lieu of that curious situation, I additionally considered handing myself a ‘similar prize’ for even having considered reporting about this, until looking further into the Uhouse case where eventually all doubt came to evaporate. Doing the research, was ‘no simple task’, especially when the claimant ( Uhouse ) turned-up dead.

According to Bill Uhouse ( see, I immediately start pointing my finger at him! ), these extraterrestrial biological entities ( EBE ) were extracted from an ‘underground bunker’ where supposedly thousands more extraterrestrial biological entities ( EBE ) – controlled by the U.S. government – held in Deep Underground  Military Bases ( D.U.M.B. ) through an elaborate network of tunnels leading to various and sundry equally deep underground pockets of caves / caverns.

I know, by now, those so-far reviewing this will ensure I receive the ‘crazy prize’ instead of ( posthumously ) Uhouse, but not to worry as it only gets worse until getting better when viewing the ‘official government films’ ( further below ), but ‘reading this report further will assist skeptics’ in understanding what can be identified within the videos. Jumping the gun by advancing to view the videos will net ‘little to no information’ so, I’m counting-on ‘official government speed readers’ ( reviewing this report ) to jump-the-gun and do exactly that so, hopefully I won’t be pestered ( by them ) later-on for having publicly reported something too sensitive. I just love doing reports like this.

Bill Uhouse goes on to described – in ‘very specific words’ ( as though he were sending a coded message to someone knowing more about these EBEs ) – the four ( 4 ) beings as what he calls ” Feeling Good Guys ” ( ” FGG ” ) especially selected – by U.S. government officials – for transport ‘away from’ one Nevada ( USA ) facility and ‘sent to’ another facility in New Mexico ( USA ) but then transported ‘back to’ to Nevada ( USA ) at a facility believed to be on the Nellis Air Force Base ( NAFB ) Range Test Site ( RTS ) known as “S4″ ( ’near’ – but ‘not at’ – the infamously spooky Area 51 ) where Uhouse claims these particular four ( 4 ) EBEs or ‘aliens’ were assigned – by an official U.S. government directive – to ‘work alongside private-sector members’ of his ( Uhouse’s ) engineering team assigned likewise to the same U.S. government Program Project.

William Uhouse specifically mentions but ‘one ( 1 ) alien’ ( a “Grey” – bluish-purple skin color type of ‘extraterrestrial biological entity’ – EBE ) intimately that he was told was nicknamed ” JAYROD ” ( also known as ) ” JROD ” ( aka ) ” JRD ” (aka) ” JERROD ” who was presented to him ( Uhouse ) as a ‘personally assigned’  “scientific translator.”

This is ‘not’ the first time the name “Jerrod” has surfaced surrounding Groom Lake, Nevada NAFB S4 and Area 51 extraterrestrial reverse-engineering Program Projects where Bob Lazar referenced someone he claimed was his “friend” he cleverly gave the name “Jerrod” to, and this “Jerrod” was claimed by Bob Lazar to have revealed ‘highly classified historical background information about’ surrounding certain government Program Project activities in the same location areas.

Bill Uhouse claims JAYROD ( the alien Grey ) – also known as – “Jarod” used ‘mental telepathic communication skills’ to receive questions he ( Uhouse ) presented to it ( the alien ), but before he ( Uhouse ) could purse his lips to begin asking audible questions about ’engineering configurations’, JayRod ( alien ) instantly and telepathically transmitted ‘mental telepathy replies’ as ’engineering instructions’ back to Uhouse.

Uhouse was believed to have been dealing with what had been presented elsewhere – during the 1980s – in what was leaked to the public – during the early 21st Century – as ‘alien symbolic construct science technologies’ studying translations of a ‘materials science language’ from a strange looking ‘map’ containing ‘patterned symbols and designs’, which Uhouse ( alone ) could not possibly comprehend in order to properly lead engineering teams into formulating ‘standard basic application designs’ enabling the U.S. government military to develop an actual UFO ‘flight simulator’ – or ‘lenticular craft simulator’ ( “flying disc simulator” ) – specifically designed so ‘only human astronautic experienced pilots’ – assigned to the National Reconaissance Office ( NRO ) and NASA – could learn how to fly UFO type spacecraft equipped with secret extraterrestrial ( ET ) technology capabilities.

Official U.S. Air Force ( USAF ) ‘motion picture film footage’ shows men near one type of “flying disc demonstrator” – wrapped and resting on its ‘container base’ with its ‘container cover’ suspended above it – and film footage of ‘teams of men’ guiding ‘suspended sub-sections’ of a ‘disc’ being ‘assembled’, and ‘partially assembled sub-sections’ of a ‘disc’, plus ‘more’ ( below ):

After carefully studying the video contents thoroughly and comparing all aspects thereof to what surrounded the AVRO ‘manned aerial vehicle’ ( circa: late 1950s – early 1960s ) – test-flown under a BELL LABORATORIES ( Canada ) ”business agreement” contract under U.S. Central Intelligence Agency ( CIA ) supervision ( from the late 1950s through early 1960s ) – these video contents are ‘definitely not’ films of ’any early developmental stages’ of the AVRO aerial vehicle, nor do video contents of any of the discs depicted therein even remotely represent ’test engineering’ or ‘manufacturing’ facilities where even pieces of the AVRO were ever housed – including BELL LABS ( Canada ) and the MITRE CORP. ( USA ).

Should those, reviewing this report, decide I should still be awarded the ‘free mental health treatment prize’ – alluded-to at the beginning of this report – for revealing what was contained herein, please notify me immediately – otherwise try not to appear so shocked as to what you eventually realized from this report – more-so than initially believed.

As for Extraterrestrial Biological Entities (aka) aliens (aka) ETs (aka) Ancient Earth Underground Dwellers (aka) Feeling Good Guys ( FGG ) – and films thereof – one may only be reminded to ask William Uhouse on their final travel.

As for documentation? Read the “IMPORTANT NOTICE:” ( above ), for without such this report would never have been written.

Unmanned Combat Aerial Submarine ( UCAS )

Unmanned Combat Aerial Submarine ( UCAS )
by, Concept Activity Research Vault ( CARV )

March 17, 2011 08:42:22 ( PST) Updated ( Originally Published: January 17, 2011 22:42 )

CALIFORNIA, Mojave – March 17, 2011 – U.S. Department of Defense ( DoD ) Advanced Research Projects Agency ( DARPA ) military science and technology ( S&T ) department has created yet ‘another’ Unmanned Combat Aerial Submersible Vehicle ( UCASV ) that can descend from Low Earth Orbit ( LEO ) flightpaths to approach and submerge a body of water ( oceanic or lake ) where the target is located.

From a remote-control underground desert facility ( Muroc, California ) this aerial combat submarine ( UCASV ) also employs a strategic morphing technology offense for approaching targets beneath the surface, afterwhich mission success this UCASV rises from sea depths with its delta wing ( hydrafoil ) design water-to-air surface breaking power engages its thrust-vectoring engine propulsion system aides short distance smooth water-to-air.

Not since the DARPA program LOCCAS powered LOCKHEED project U.S. Navy remote-controlled cruise torpedo or the DARPA program TACIT BLUE experimental BOEING project Bird of Prey combat aerial vehicle ( image above ) – combined – has a more advanced program developed, however since 2008 such proceeded beyond demonstrator development garnered several private-sector developer designs pushing a DoD DARPA project contract to have begun by 2011 building several versions.

While hydrodynamics and aerodynamics have similar principle aspects, profound technological challenges existed as Unmanned Aerial Submersible Combat Vehicle ( UASCV ) must be lightweight ( Dupont carbon fiber using 3M carbon resins ) – for minimal power consumption to become airborne – while simultaneously possessing sufficient material hull density to withstand oceanic pressures at variable depths.

Aircrafts that are ‘heavier-than-air’ obtain lift from wing airflow displacement, however submarines regulate buoyancy by pumping water in and out of ballasts within certain hull locations.

One method of getting around the latter problem is to design a ‘lighter-than-water’ submarine with an ‘upside-down flexible ( morphing technology ) batwing aerial submarine vehicle’ using reverseable lift generation alternating ‘delta bat-wing’ directional force design technology facilitating craft navigation through oceanic subsurfaces ( and upon surfacing therefrom ) where drag reduction is virtually eliminated by easily altering its ‘flexible whale tail angle of attack’ generating upward lift allowing a variable propulsion drive system to move the Unmanned Aerial Submersible Combat Vehicle ( UASCV ) amidst a variety of environments.

Modified versions of BOEING legacy Rocketdyne XRS-2200 AeroSpike thurst vector navigation ‘lateral engines’ ( 2 ) – based on those formerly used in the U.S. Air Force LOCKHEED F-117E Stealth Reconaissance Fighter ( image ‘immediately’ above ) – are used in miniature tandems ( 2 ) on Aerial Submersible Vehicles ( ASV ).

The Unmanned Aerial Submersible Combat Vehicle ( UASCV ) ’satellite blue-green laser-guided remote-controlled navigation propulsion and underwater optical sensing detectors and camera systems’ remains as sensitive as the DARPA LOCCAS powered remote-piloted submersible torpedo ‘satellite blue-green laser-guided remote-controlled navigation propulsion and underwater optical sensing detectors and camera systems’.

Robot Combat Intelligence
by, Concept Activity Research Vault ( CARV )

January 18, 2011 21:08:42 ( PST ) ( Originally Published: February 1, 2002 )

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, Washington – January 18, 2011 – Over 12-years ago, after the United States realized too late that its ‘miniature nuclear weapons technology delivery system’ ( W-88 ) secrets had already been stolen ( from the vault of its insurance carrier ) after the People’s Republic of China ( PRC ) rapidly produced their own version, ‘only a select few’ realized a secret U.S. decision took futuristic concepts into development for U.S. global military applications deploying technologies that only seemed to have been conceived from science-fiction motion picture films ( e.g. STAR TREK, STAR WARS, MATRIX, and more ) shocking audiences worldwide.   In 1999, U.S. secret defense endeavors forgings – with several universities and U.S. government contract private sector organizations – were led by the U.S. Department of Defense ( DoD ), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency ( DARPA ) created even newer more advanced multiple Program stratagems employing various forms of ‘combinatoric’ technologies developed for globally deploying U.S. military dominance with various and sundry secret-sensitive devices and systems far beyond many imaginations.

DARPA SIMBIOSYS Program –

DARPA SIMBIOSYS Program entails, amongst other things, multi-functional microbiological nano technology robot android devices primarily for military applications, where such remained until just a few years ago, until it began being applied in some medical arenas today.

To understand what is ‘current’, one must first look briefly at DARPA Programs ‘past’ ( 1999 – 2002 ), which ( alone ) is enough to ‘still send chills down many people’s spines today’. Once realizing what DARPA was doing 12-years ago, it’s not all that unfathomable to comprehend where DARPA has taken and will continue taking many.

SIMBIOSYS ( 1999 – 2002 ) –

In 1999, DARPA SIMBIOSYS developed a combined quantitative understanding of various biological phenomena characteristics opening the DARPA door to what amounts to MicroElectroMechanical Systems ( MEMS ) integrating microphotonics in, amongst many things such as electro-optic spatial light modulators ( SLM ) combining very short pulse solid state lasers providing powerful new capabilities for secure communication up-links ( multi-gigabits per second ), ‘aberration free’ 3-D imaging and targeting performed at very long ranges ( greater than 1,000 kilometers away ), innovative design system integration of MEMS spatial light modulators ( SLM ) providing quantum wavefront control leaps in photonics and high speed electronics, and even ‘flexible cloth-like smart materials’ DARPA wants hardware placed into production devices and systems applications optimizing both U.S. and ‘its specially selected few other foreign nation U.S. friendlies’ ( Israel ) to hold in future warfaring battlespace management superiority over other foreign nation threats.

DARPA SIMBIOSYS includes classes of biological molecules ( i.e. antigens, antibodies, DNA, cytokines, enzymes, etc. ) for analyses and diagnoses studies, from:

1. Biochemical sensors, sensing ‘details from environments’; and,

2. Biochemical sensors, sensing ‘details from human body fluids’.

Specific examples under each of those two ( 2 ) groups being left up to the discretion of the PI.

Bio-molecules importance slect criteria, includes:

1. Microsystem sensors, for automated sampling and analyses, extendibility;

2. Bio-molecules simulant, to which it represents U.S. Department of Defense ( DoD ) relevant extents; and,

3. Bio-detection high degree of sensitivity and specificity processing, etc.

DARPA SIMBIOSYS emphasis is at the ‘molecular level’ for ‘sensing’ and ‘detection’.

SIMBIOSYS Program precludes human cells and human tissue based sensing because other DARPA programs currently address those issues in combination thereof.

SIMBIOSYS Goals –

SIMBIOSYS Program ‘stimulates multi-disciplinary research’ – bringing together biologists, chemists, engineers, physicists, computer scientists and others to address difficult and pressing challenges in advancing micro and nano-biotechnology.

SIMBIOSYS Program goal is to ‘utilize phenomena’ in ‘bio-fluidic transport’, ‘molecular recognition’ and ‘signal transduction from joint studies in modeling and experiments.

SIMBIOSYS Program joint effort expects results in ‘new hardware device, new hardware processes and new hardware production communities that will begin utilizing new models, new rules, new methods and new processes together enabling design and development of enhanced performance next generation bio-microdevices.

DARPA Advanced Projects –

DARPA is focusing on, amongst many, these advanced projects:

1. Bioengineering artificial intelligence ( AI ) systems sized from nanometers and meters up to large-scale robotic systems deployed globally;

2. Biological hybrid devices and systems, inspired from computational algorithms and models;

3. Biosynthesized composite materials incorporating synthetic enzymes and pathways from biochemical cellular engineered concepts for application productions;

4. Neural phenomena control over system science computation measurement application interfaces addressing humans;

5. Micro-scale reagents biochemically engineered;

6. Biosynthesis signal processing control platform studies;

7. Molecular biological population level behavior dynamic simulation modeling complexes; and,

8. Subcellular device physics affects and cellular device physics affects within biological component systems using real-time non-destructive observation study techniques.

Bioengineered MicroBots Developed & Deployed –

Battlefields now require ‘unmanned combat aerial vehicles’ ( UCAV ) and ‘advanced weapons’ that self-navigate and self-reconfigure with autonomous communication systems accomplishing time-critical commands, however while many use Commercial Off The Shelf ( COTS ) products, such is not the case for developed and deployed bioengineered microrobots.

MicroBot AMR Control By MARS –

DARPA mobile autonomous robot software ( MARS ) Project is designed to develop and transition ‘currently unavailable software technologies programming’ operations of autonomous mobile robots ( AMR ) in partially known changing and unpredictable environments.

DARPA SIMBIOSYS Program aims provide new software removing humans from combat, conveyance, reconnaissance, and surveillance processes by:

1. Extending military hardware range;

2. Lowering manpower costs;

3. Removing human physiology for swifter concepts, designs, engineering, development, and deployment successes; and,

4. Researchers demonstrating autonomous navigation of humanoid robots, unmanned military vehicles, autonomous vehicles and interactions between humans.

DARPA indicates that robots – to be meaningful – must be fully integrated into human lives in military, commercial, educational and domestic usages must be capable of interacting in more natural human ways.

DARPA funded research and development of robots given similar bodies with human-like intelligence for humanoid interaction providing new ways for the human world.

COG Robot –

DARPA funded Massachusetts Institute of Technology ( MIT ) researchers, employing a set of sensors and actuators ( with small microcontrollers for joint level control, up to larger audio-visual digital signal network pre-processors for controlling different levels of its heterogeneous hierarchy network ) approximating human body sensory and motor dynamics, created the robot named COG that eventually allowed DARPA further development of deployable, modular, reconfigurable and autonomous robots.

[ PHOTO ( above ): legacy Biomorphic Explorers – Snakes and Bats ( click to enlarge ) ]

CONRO Robots –

CONRO robots, developed through DARPA, employed autonomous capabilities, of:

1. Self-repair; and, 2. Morphogenesis ( changing shapes ).

Examples, amongst many, included design styled:

Snake robots, able to move ‘in-to’ and ‘out-of’ tight spaces; and,

Insect robots, able to move faster ( covering more ground meeting military mission swifter needs ).

[ PHOTO ( above ): legacy Spider, and Payload biochemical delivery simulation ( click to enlarge ) ]

CONRO robots were design equipped to perform two ( 2 ) missions:

1. Reconnaissance ( activity detection, monitorization, and reporting – surveillance ); and,

2. Deliver small ‘military payloads’ ( bio-chemical weapons, etc. ) into ‘enemy occupied remote territory locations’ ( away-from friendly warfighters ).

CONRO robots are comprised of multiple SPIDERLINK modules.

In 1999, DARPA built both ‘snakes’ and ‘hexapods’ as ‘initially tethered’ prototypes termed 1-DOF, equipped with abilities to both ‘dock’ and ‘gait ambulate’ based on applied computational algorithms.

In 2000, DARPA had twenty ( 20 ) autonomous self-sufficient ‘modules’ – not mentioning what those resembled – built designated as 2-DOF, after:

1. Hormone based control developed and tested theory;

2. Hormone hexapods and snakes implemented motions ( for 2-DOF );

3. Quadrupeds, hexapods and snakes implemented locomotion with centralized control for 2-DOF;

4. Morphing self-repair ‘modules’ delivering small payloads used ‘miniature cameras’ that were designed and tested; and,

5. Snake head with snake tail with configured docking capabilities were implemented laboratory two dimensional ( 2-D ) testing.

CONRO DARPA Near-Term Milestones:

1. Modules’ reconfigurability ( morphogenesis ) robust automation designed and demonstrated ( for 2-DOF );

2. Topology ‘discovery’ ( automatic topography recognition ) demonstration;

3. Gait reconfiguration ( morphogenesis ) automation for ambulating a ‘given’ ( programmed instruction ) topology designed and demonstrated;

4. Gait reconfiguration ( morphogenesis ) automation for ambulating a ‘discovery’ ( automatic topography recognition ) designed and demonstrated;

5. Wireless ( radio frequency, infra-red, etc. ) control of miniature cameras demonstrated;

6. Pointing ( waving, mousepad, etc. ) control of miniature cameras demonstrated; and,

7. Large scale deployment of CONRO robots demonstrated.

Deployer Robot ( DR ) –

Deployer Robots ( DR ) ‘support’ and ‘deploy’ distributed ‘teams of other smaller robots’ termed “Joeys” ( singular, “Joey” ) that perform either ‘hazardous tasks’ or ‘tedious tasks’.

Deployer Robots ( DR ) have two ( 2 ) roles, that:

1. Carry and launch given numbers of smaller Joey robots ( Joeys ); and,

2. Command and control ( C2 ) – after launching – Joey robots ( Joeys ).

[ PHOTO ( above ): legacy CyberLink HID test USAF personnel with DARPA robots ( click to enlarge ) ]

Robot Loop Pyramid –

Robot-in-the-Loop ( RIL ) concept, augments Human-in-Loop ( HIL ), building a ‘pyramid of robots’ – supervised by one ( 1 ) person.

‘Launch’ and ‘Command and Control’ ( C2 ) – of different Joey robots ( multiple, i.e. Joeys ) – two ( 2 ) goals are handled independently, as:

1. ‘Launch’ of robots, via grenade sized Joey robot clusters ( multiple ), developed under DARPA Deployer Robot ( DR ) Program availability of smaller Joeys; and,

2. ‘Command and Control’ ( C2 ), is investigated using ‘larger robots’ developed for DARPA ITO sister Software for Distributed Robotics ( SDR ) Program enabling fully leverage of both Deployer Robot ( DR Program and Software for Distributed Robotics ( SDR ) Program development of algorithms leveraging heterogeneous interaction between a ‘smart’ highly mobile ‘Deployer Robot’ ( DR ) and a ‘team’ of Joey robots that are more powerful, less computational and less mobile.

[ PHOTO ( above ): legacy Virtual Combiman digital glove waving battlespace management ( click to enlarge ) ]

DARPA key universal elements of robot deployment examined:

1. Emplacement – Launching and dynamically situating the Joeys for mission goals;

2. Operations – Maintaining the infrastructure to support the distributed front, including communications and error detection and recovery ( e.g., getting back on course after positional drift ); and,

3. Recovery – Collecting Joey robots data to analyze after delivery into a format useful for the human operator.

DARPA Deployer Robot ( DR ) Program development acquired and refitted two ( 2 ) Urban Robot Upgrades ( URU ) in new Deployer Robots ( DR ) types.

DARPA, investigated five ( 5 ) alternate launch strategies, but selected only one ( 1 ):

1. Grenade barrel launch, delivery of robots, into a three ( 3 ) story building.

2. Grenade barrel launcher was designed, equipped and developed, with:

3. Grenade Magazine contains ‘multiple Joey robots’ for ejection – supports full mobility integrity of the Deployer Robot ( DR );

4. Sensor mast ( collapsible ) – for Deployer Robot ( DR ) interaction with Joey robots launched on arrival at destination location; and,

5. Communication ( 916 MHz ) link between Deployer Robot ( DR ) and Joey robots.

DARPA SDR Program –

DARPA Software for Distributed Robotics ( SDR ) Program development designed and built Joey robot prototypes ( approximately 3-1/2 inch cube ) for ultimate fabrication in a production lot quantity of 120 Joey robot units.

DARPA Software for Distributed Robotics ( SDR ) Program leverage and adaptation controls swarms of Joey robots.

DARPA Near-Term Milestones:

1. Launch propulsion mechanisms ( C02 cartridge, .22 caliber shell, or other ) deployment testing of Joey robots into battlefield areas;

2. Launcher ( of multiple Joey robot deployment ) mechanism built on-board first ( 1st ) Deployer Robot ( DR ) named Bandicoot;

3. Sensor mast ( collapsible ) built and installed on-board second ( 2nd ) Deployer Robot ( DR ) named Wombat;

4. Radio Frequency ( RF ) development protocols for interaction between Deployer Robot ( DR ) and Joey robots;

5. Infra-Red ( IR ) deployment protocols for interaction mechanisms between Deployer Robot ( DR ) and Joey robots using IR ( Infra-Red );

6. Human Interface Device ( HID ) operator remote control unit ( ORCU ) development for Deployer Robot ( DR ).

DARPA SIMBIOSYS began over 12-years ago. All the photographs ( above ) are almost one decade ( 10-years ) old.

Current careful research on this subject further provides more information about where the U.S. stands today.
