US Army announces agreement with To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science to study ‘mystery materials’ of unexplained origin

The Black Vault

To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science (TTSA), a public benefit corporation led by rock star Tom DeLonge, announced a collaborative agreement with the U.S. Army this week. The original press release sent out by TTSA was vague, and offered few details. However, the Army spoke with The Black Vault to discuss the agreement, and offer a copy of the entire document, nearly in full (understandably, a few phone numbers were removed for privacy reasons).

The news broke on October 17, 2019, wherein TTSA stated in a press release, “[TTSA] announced today a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command [CCDC] to advance TTSA’s materiel and technology innovations in order to develop enhanced capabilities for Army ground vehicles.” The press release continued, “TTSA will share its discoveries with Ground Vehicle System Center (GVSC) and Ground Vehicle Survivability and Protection (GVSP) and the U.S. Army shall provide laboratories, expertise, support, and resources to help characterize the technologies and its applications.”

Doug Halleaux, Public Affairs Officer for the Army’s CCDC GVSC, responded to The Black Vault with statements and a copy of the executed agreement. In addition, on behalf of the Army, he helped address still lingering questions about the overall situation, though some still remain.

“TTSA has a set of different materials, the properties of which they’re interested in investigating the properties. As materials research in general is of key interest to Army research, the Army is interested in any insights gained from investigating the properties of these materials, too,” Dr. Halleaux stated in an e-mail to The Black Vault. “In this case, the Army is providing the expertise and facilities to analyze the materials, and TTSA is providing the materials themselves; both parties receive the results of the analysis. Just as there is no financial compensation to TTSA for the use of the materials, there is no financial compensation to the Army for the use of the facilities.”

Although TTSA has its share of supporters, it is the part about “sharing” with the military that got other members of the social network universe up in arms.

TTSA has had a primary message that the military is hiding information about UAPs, and that has resonated with many of their fans along with their investors. However, now that TTSA has allegedly acquired physical pieces of the “phenomena,” to some, they are now just walking it all back through the doors of the military and sharing the discoveries with those they claim are hiding secrets from the public. Although TTSA did not respond to questions submitted by The Black Vault, the Army did weigh in on how they may benefit from the research results, and what they thought about the provenance of the material itself.

“As far as the materials- the Army’s interest is in the potential for novel materials and exploring the edges of materials science, any speculation as to their origin is (pardon the pun) immaterial. Our team is always excited to look at something new, whether it’s materials or technologies, capabilities or processes,” said Dr. Halleaux. “As materials research in general is of key interest to Army research, the Army is interested in any insights gained from investigating the properties of these materials, too. In this case, the Army is providing the expertise and facilities to analyze the materials, and TTSA is providing the materials themselves; both parties receive the results of the analysis. Just as there is no financial compensation to TTSA for the use of the materials, there is no financial compensation to the Army for the use of the facilities.”

Attorney and TTSA investor, Nathan Hendrickson, is not surprised by the news. “I knew that at the last shareholder meeting, TTSA was discussing their desire to own their own lab. One of the constant gripes has been the high cost of lab testing meta-materials,” Hendrickson told The Black Vault. “It appears that they have solved this problem by letting the US Army test their material so long as the Army gets to see and use any results.”

Although this news was expected by attentive shareholders, at least one of them is not keen on the apparent secrecy involved with the news. Hendrickson added, “While I am glad that a high-end Army research facility is going to look at the metal, I would’ve never known this by reading the TTSA press release. I wish I didn’t have to rely on others to do the investigating to answer questions that the company should be answering. In keeping with military tradition, TTSA is very ‘coy’, and that is infuriating to me.”

As for the metamaterial currently in the possession of TTSA, some of it is referenced as being “on loan” in recent SEC filings. The Black Vault reached out to someone associated with at least one of the pieces in TTSA’s possession, seeking comment on the news about this new agreement. This person requested they remain anonymous, and respectfully declined to comment due to the fact they signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with TTSA, which prohibits them from doing so.

This arrangement between TTSA and the Army is clearly unclassified. However, that seemingly does not take away from many elements of secrecy surrounding the agreement. Until curators of some of the material are able to talk; TTSA answers looming questions; and peer-reviewed scientific results are published… we may just be left to wonder on what is now going on inside Army laboratories.

Initial Statement:

A CRADA is a mechanism for cooperative work between a government agency and another agency, either internal to the government or external, non-government. Our colleagues at Army Research Lab have a pretty good synopsis on their website (https://www.arl.army.mil/www/default.cfm?page=14) but CRADAs aren’t limited to ARL, they’re used across the various government R&D agencies and facilities. In essence, a CRADA brings together researchers for truly cooperative work between the agency and its partner without an exchange of funds, property, or other exchanges that would otherwise require a traditional contracting mechanism. Typically, CRADAs are used for out-of-the-box type work or leading-edge technologies where both parties have an interest in conducting research together for mutual information or investigatory benefit. An example I like to use is the CRADA that the Army enjoys with General Motors, specifically with regards to Fuel Cell research. General Motors’ Fuel Cell technologies are of interest to the Army, and the Army’s experience with off-road vehicles and operation is of interest to GM; the CRADA between the two afforded an opportunity to investigate the use of Fuel Cells for rugged, austere, off-road environments, providing insights that both GM and the Army benefit from.

A CRADA isn’t an endorsement mechanism- just as the Army doesn’t endorse General Motors or any other automobile manufacturer, the Army also doesn’t endorse its other cooperative partners. Specific to the To The Stars Academy CRADA, TTSA has a set of different materials, the properties of which they’re interested in investigating the properties. As materials research in general is of key interest to Army research, the Army is interested in any insights gained from investigating the properties of these materials, too. In this case, the Army is providing the expertise and facilities to analyze the materials, and TTSA is providing the materials themselves; both parties receive the results of the analysis. Just as there is no financial compensation to TTSA for the use of the materials, there is no financial compensation to the Army for the use of the facilities.

CRADAs can be built with just about any external entity within the limits of the law and reason, and when there’s an interest to both parties to do so. The Army forms CRADAs after careful consideration of the cost to the Army in terms of time and resources to the mutual research and the potential value to the Army of the research results.

Conspiracy Theories

The Rothschild magazine predicted the coronavirus more than a year ago

“It’s hard to believe that two months ago this virus, which absorbed all the attention of the media, financial markets and politicians, was absolutely unknown to us,” said the Director General of the World Health Organization. The appearance of the killer virus was predicted a year ago.

While the normal flu annually kills over half a million people on the planet, there are no vaccines or effective medicines for the Chinese adversity. The WHO Secretary-General responsibly stated that it would take about a year and a half to develop a vaccine and specialized treatments. 

The first version on the coronavirus source was through bats and snakes. On February 7, they announced that they had found a potential intermediate host for the infection. This is an ancient pangolin that appeared on Earth 60 million years ago. The strain found in its body is 99% identical to that found in infected people. 

The 2019 Economist Cover

At the top of the cover there is a panda (China). From the East (where China is located) four “Horsemen of the Apocalypse” leave – Pestilence (coronavirus epidemic), War (Syria, Libya, Afghanistan), Hunger (food shortages due to epidemics and border closures), Death (from epidemics and wars) . But the most interesting detail on the cover is the image of a strange animal, which many be taken for an anteater. And only now it became clear that this is a pangolin. Given that the epidemic in China began in December 2019, the encrypted cover was prophetic. The main argument of this prophecy is the pangolin, whose appearance on the cover did not find any interpretation until February 7, 2020, when it was announced that the metagenomes of the pangolin, coronavirus and infected people are almost identical.

The influential British weekly The Economist is considered the global mouthpiece of the Rothschilds, the planet’s oldest financial clan. They are also called the secret rulers of the world, the top of the “golden billion.” According to cheap conspiracy theories, there are enough resources on Earth only for the world elite and the personnel serving it – the “golden billion”. The rest of the people of the world behind the scenes allegedly decided to counteract with the help of wars, hunger, epidemics. It turns out that the Rothschilds sent a message on a new epidemic by warning their supporters with an encrypted cover. Seemingly, everything converges – horsemen of the Apocalypse from the East, including the first, on a white horse – Death and the mysterious pangolin being the source of a terrible unknown infection. The vast majority of world residents have not even heard about these animals until the last days.

In that issue of forecasts, there was an alarming article on the trade in many billions of rare and endangered animals. Even elephants, tigers, lions and rhinos remain in danger.

In 2019, a lot of attention will be paid to the problem, the magazine wrote. Colombo will host a summit to protect these animals. There is a curious passage there. “One of the biggest breakthroughs is China’s ban on the sale of ivory and its products in 2018. But some ivory merchants have moved into a new market: pangolins. “These anteaters, valued for their meat and the alleged healing properties of the scales, are currently the best-selling endangered species in the world.”

According to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, pangolins are on the list of the most protected animals. Catching them is prohibited in China. But this does not save them from poachers. In Chinese folk medicine, pangolin scales are used to increase potency, treat many diseases, from asthma to cancer. Meat is considered a delicacy. In restaurants, they go for 60 – 70 dollars per kg, illegally of course

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, over the past ten years, poachers have caught more than 1 million pangolins in Asian and African forests and transported them to China and Vietnam. The meat was also illegally sold in the famous market in Wuhan. Employees of this market became the first patients with COVID-19 at the end of December.

So the appearance of the most popular animal among international smugglers on the cover of the Economist’s forecasts is justified but is the fact that the pangolin has become the alleged source of a new epidemic in the world a pure coincidence?

US military uses 5G network to secretly control the weather

Some members of the anti-5G movement have suspicions that the ultra-fast satellite network may be connected to a mysterious military facility that can control the weather.

The HAARP (High-Frequency Ionospheric Scattering Research Program) is a transmitting device used to study the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, located in Alaska. Its construction, funded by the military, was completed in 2007, but just seven years later, the program was closed and ownership of the HAARP and its capabilities were transferred to the University of Alaska.

For many years, conspiracy theorists have argued that the US government uses HAARP to control the weather, a statement repeatedly denied by officials and scientists. Some believe that the power of HAARP is beyond the scope of weather manipulation, claiming that it is capable of mass control of the mind through the emission of extremely powerful low-frequency signals, with ionospheric heaters (powerful radio waves) specifically targeted at people. Interest in HAARP has resumed due to growing tensions between Iran and the US, and some say the program is not only active, but also strengthened by the deployment of 5G. HAARP operates in the ionosphere, a layer of our atmosphere that is located at an altitude of 75 – 1000 km above the Earth’s surface.

In addition, an increasing number of 5G satellites are being launched into orbit, SpaceX plans to launch another 1,400 as part of its Starlink fleet by the end of 2020. The company has applied to launch another 30,000, while other technology giants such as Amazon and Facebook are also planning to send their own 5G satellites into space. The US Air Force Report 2025, published in 2008 with a 3,300-page report identifying future challenges for the US military, contains this intriguing paragraph: “The high-energy space laser system is considered a multi-megawatt chemical laser capable of hitting ground, air or space targets With lower power settings, it can turn off the enemy’s optics, perform passive sensing tasks, actively highlight the target with a laser, or even change the weather.

American activist and author Arthur Firstenberg is one of many 5G critics who believes that the Starlink fleet will harm the Earth’s electromagnetic environment, creating an “imminent threat to the extinction of all life on Earth,” he told the Daily Star. “Starlink satellites are located in the lowest layer of the magnetosphere called the ionosphere. The ionosphere, which is the source of energy for all life on Earth, will be exposed to the full power of satellite radiation instead of just a negligible fraction of the energy that goes through power lines located on the ground.”

However, he does not believe that satellites will be used in technology like HAARP, and believes that weather control is much less feasible than some people think. Global Research’s Makia Freeman has linked the growing 5G network with HAARP, claiming technology is part of a broader plot of surveillance and domination. “It is vital to understand the big picture of a grand conspiracy,” she writes. “All of these destructive and dangerous technologies – 5G, Wi-Fi, wireless radiation, HAARP, ionospheric heating, geoengineering, GMOs, etc. – are going to be woven into one giant integrated monitoring, command and control system.”

As one example of the interconnectedness of these technologies, she cites chemtrails (chemical trails), “filled with metal particles that 5G can use.” Other conspiracy theorists believe that 5G continues to control the atmosphere that HAARP produced prior to its closure in 2014. A 2017 plan to install 50,000 5G cell towers across California was met with massive protests from local residents, some of whom claimed to be part of a “geo-engineering” weather observation and control storyline.
