From: "[ UASR ]> Perry" <AlienResearch@Earthcorp.com> [Perry Man] Date: Sun, 5 Apr 1998 10:33:58 +0200 Fwd Date: Sun, 05 Apr 1998 09:59:23 -0400 Subject: [UASR]> DSP Satellite Confirmation of the Iranian From: http://ufo-world.simplenet.com/iran_dsp.html The DSP Connection An impressive breakthrough in the confirmation of the Iranian UFO encounter was uncovered by researchers Lee Graham and Ron Regehr, of Aero-Jet in California. They confirmed that the UFO sighting over Tehran was, in fact, tracked by the United States military's DSP satellite. Some of our readers may be aware that the primary responsibility of the DSP-1 satellite is to detect the launch of ballistic missiles. This deep-space platform detects infrared heat through sensors that are mounted on the body of the satellite. ANYTHING that emits infrared heat is detected by this apparatus. It can determine different types of aircraft simply by comparing the "signature" of the infrared signals displayed by an object against an intensely complete database of all known aircraft. The DSP was, as we now know, responsible for the detection of Iraqi SCUD missile launches during Operation Desert Storm. During their investigations, Graham and Reghr have located computer print-outs from the time frame of the the Iranian UFO overflight, which show that the DSP definitely detected an "anomalous object" in Iranian air space. Lee Graham was a guest on Don Ecker's UFOs Tonight radio show on 10/31/93. During the show Don and Lee talk about this particular incident. A Computer printout of the anomalous event with the classified term "238 SCANS - POSSIBLE SR" [.jpg is available at the above URL] The term "238 SCANS" indicates that the event lasted more than an hour. To the best of our knowledge, this is the ONLY case in history where we have confirmation of a UFO sighting by observers both on the ground, in the air and by the DSP-1. The magnitude of this revelation should not be overlooked. It would be an interesting project to compare DSP records to other reported anomalous sightings around the world.
