According to documents released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), a top-secret artificial intelligence program called “Sentient” has detected a possible unidentified aerial object resembling the shape “Tic-Tac reported by US Navy pilots in 2004.
The documents, obtained by researcher Kyle Warfel and shared with The Black Vault , are part of two NRO PowerPoint presentations that describe the detection of an unidentified aerial object less than 10 meters in length that does not match any signature of known aircraft.
“The object, however, vaguely resembled aerial objects detected by US Navy aircraft and surface ships, with a rough similarity to the previously reported ‘Tic-Tac’ shape, according to the documents; although specific locations of previous sightings are redacted, it can be assumed to be a “Tic-Tac” UFO encountered by the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group off the California coast in 2004.
The document goes on to state that “the object was also detected/visible in a second image taken over water in the same area approximately 15 seconds later”, implying that the object was imaged by several sensors.
The documents state that the object is unlikely to be a sensor problem or space junk, and that there were no other electronic signals or air or sea traffic in the area that could cause it. explain.
The NRO shared this information with the UAP Task Force and NGA for further analysis and coordination. The documents also reveal that Sentient is an artificial intelligence system capable of processing different types of data, predicting future events and directing satellites to areas of interest.
Sentient has been in development since 2010 and its capabilities and operations are highly classified. The documents showed only six of 30 pages, with the rest denied.
