WASHINGTON, DC --Tom DeLonge's UFO research group is joining forces with the U.S. Army. The new agreement will allow the Army to have access to research conducted by the former Blink-182 front man's To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science.
“The government is interested in a variety of the collaborator’s technologies, such as, but not limited to inertial mass reduction, mechanical/structural metamaterials, electromagnetic metamaterial wave guides, quantum physics, quantum communications, and beamed energy propulsion,” a portion of the contract reads.
This comes after the Navy confirmed back in September that three videos released by the academy showed genuine unidentified aerial phenomena.
“Our partnership with TTSA serves as an exciting, non-traditional source for novel materials and transformational technologies to enhance our military ground system capabilities,” Joseph Cannon, deputy product manager with Army Futures Command, said in a joint press release announcing the partnership.
According to their website, DeLongue’s To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science is a public benefit corporation that was established in 2017 as a revolutionary collaboration between academia, industry and pop culture to advance society's understanding of scientific phenomena and its technological implications. TTSA works to achieve their mission via an entertainment, science and aerospace consortium that engages with global citizens to investigate the outer edges of science and unconventional thinking to push human knowledge and ultimately, our collective capability forward.
