Disc over Brazil

This week's files cover: Underwater Base off Canadian Coast, Astronaut Edgar Mitchell comments, Mars strange photo, Possible UFO crash in Iran, and UAVs Probably Now Flying over Iran.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomena were spotted over: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Maryland, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.

UFOs were also seen in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Columbia, and Iran.

These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over one hundred UFOs reported each week represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when I chased one over England when flying for the US Air Force. I've been investigating them ever since.

The US Air Force under Project Blue Book investigated UFOs for more than twenty years, we continue this research. Our goal is to uncover the secrets of UFOs. We are continuing the investigation and make the assumption we are not alone in the universe. Based on the large number of sightings we can assume the watchers have had bases on Earth for thousands of years. The Best is Yet to Come

Atlantic Commander Bethune's Underwater Base

T. R. Dutton writes, "After watching through the Disclosure Project video, I was privileged to talk with the late Commander. Graham Bethune over the ‘phone, just a short time before, regretfully, he departed from this world. "He told me that he had good reasons to be sure he had seen an underwater base off Newfoundland, around midnight, on February 9, 1951." Forty military personnel and air crew observed the UFO as it approached and flew formation with the Navy Constellation aircraft. The flight crew described it as a huge saucer shaped metallic machine having a large illuminated outer ring. He referred me to Michael Hesemann's full account of the happening given in his book, ‘UFOs - The Secret History'. I looked up this information to locate the position where the large disc/dome UFO had apparently climbed near the Navy DC-4. I fed the details of the event through the programs of my Astronautical Theory (AT) for UFO CE events, which I'd formulated after more than 30 years of analysis.

The foundation of my theory is my discovery that the spacecraft delivering and retrieving the Strange Aerial Craft (SAC), reported from all over world, were following a programmed astronautical procedure. They were approaching from, and returning into, the solar system, referencing predetermined positions in the sky. On each spacecraft's arrival, it followed one of a fixed (permanently established) set of orbit-like paths, which would take it over the predetermined target to be surveyed. These fixed paths over the ground below are the equivalents of the air lanes followed by civil aircraft) It then released an SAC (exploration craft) into the atmosphere before accelerating rapidly back into space. The time allowed for the fully automated SAC's mission was determined by the availability of another fixed path, which would provide access to that target area and enable the SAC probe to be retrieved. After retrieval, the retrieving spacecraft then accelerated away, as happened during the delivery sequence. This AT scenario has now been tested on well over 1000 cases and the results have left little doubt that the ET's programmed activities are being simulated very effectively.

1st Computation and Graphs. Top left, is presented a list of seven of the nearest access paths to the specified target area. On the first set of graphs, the target was the DC-4's estimated location when the ring of lights was first spotted. The navigator gave the aircraft's course as 230 degrees (Mag?) for Argentia, Newfoundland. These details have been drawn onto the Lat/Long grid map, top right. Using Bethune's estimated direction and distance the location is represented by an upright cross at 49.67 degrees North / 50.86 degrees West. (Shown as X in Atlantic)

There are 4 sets of 7 lines presented, superimposed on a doubled time scale for each day of any year. There are 7 lines in each set that are numbered 1 to 7 and these timing lines correspond to tracks 1 to 7 drawn on the grid map. A line is drawn vertically from February 9th and this line crosses one of the dashed sloping lines at about 23:30 hours, the closest time to Bethune's encounter. That timing is produced by Path # 5 that crosses to the south of the DC-4's position and very close to the estimated location of the ring of lights. The paths converge in the targeted area. This could imply that this location could be well positioned to provide a temporary underwater base for SACs launched from those paths, or waiting to be retrieved. Thanks to T.R.Dutton

Astronaut Edgar Mitchell writes,

Thank you, George, the Tampa article exaggerated my statements and was not good reporting, but except for exaggeration was largely correct. I stand by my statements that I have had no first hand UFO experiences or sightings, but have been briefed by a number of credible military and intelligence witness who have. I know of no sightings by astronauts while in space up through the Apollo program; but of course, numerous from flying activity while in the service. Anything else attributed to me is in error or hearsay. Just trying to keep the record accurate. Thanks again. Edgar (Article below)

Astronaut: We've had Visitors

The Sixth Man to Walk on the Moon Shares His Unconventional Views.

ST. PETERSBURG - Waveney Ann Moore writes, "The aliens have landed. Thus declared Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell on Saturday to more than 200 admirers. "A few insiders know the truth . . . and are studying the bodies that have been discovered," said Mitchell, who was the sixth man to walk on the moon. Mitchell, who landed on the moon with Alan B. Shepard, said a "cabal" of insiders stopped briefing presidents about extraterrestrials after President Kennedy. For those who might consider his statements farfetched, Mitchell, who has a doctorate in science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, noted that 30 years ago it was accepted that man was alone in the universe. Few people believe that now, he said. Besides aliens, Mitchell talked about being freed of prostate cancer during a healing ceremony and his epiphany while returning from the moon. "I had an opportunity to be a tourist," he said, going on to speak about the sensation he felt as he watched the Earth, moon and sun.

Raised as a Southern Baptist, Mitchell said his feeling of interconnectedness could not be explained by traditional religion alone. He later founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences. On its Web site, the California organization says it conducts and sponsors "leading-edge research into the potentials and powers of consciousness" and that it explores "phenomena that do not necessarily fit conventional scientific models, while maintaining a commitment to scientific rigor."

Arkansas Colonel Says Lights Not of This World

Van Buren -- A retired Air Force colonel who photographed mysterious, colorful lights hovering over western Arkansas last week has ignited a frenzy of interest in unexplained airborne phenomena, as WorldNetDaily, (WND) has received numerous reports of similar sightings across the U.S., while a digital expert has filtered the pictures to reveal startling images of what he says could be the "pilot" of the unidentified craft. "I believe these lights were not of this world, and I feel a duty and responsibility to come forward," said Col. Brian Fields, who spent nearly 32 years in the military piloting F-16 fighter jets. "I have no idea what they were."

Joe Kovacs writes, " In the wake of reports of unidentified objects flying over Chicago's O'Hare Airport, a retired Air Force pilot has his own mystery with a rash of bright, colorful lights he photographed hovering in skies over western Arkansas last week. "I believe these lights were not of this world, and I feel a duty and responsibility to come forward," Col. Brian Fields told WND. "I have no idea what they were." Fields, 61, was cooking chicken at his Van Buren, home January 9 when just before 7 p.m., he observed two intensely bright lights as he looked to the southeast close to the horizon.

"At first I thought they were landing lights from an aircraft," he said. "As I continued to observe them they began to slowly disappear, then suddenly one reappeared, followed by two, then three. On at least one occasion four or five appeared. Each time they would slowly fade and eventually disappear. This occurred several times and when they would reappear they might do so in differing numbers and in different positions, sometimes in a triangular shape, sometimes stacked on top of each other, sometimes line abreast, etc. When the objects appeared they might stay illuminated 10 or more minutes."

Fields says he's certain they were airborne. The retired colonel spent close to 32 years in the military, flying F-16s as a member of the 188th Fighter Wing of the Arkansas Air National Guard. "I'm certain it wasn't an aircraft from Earth," said Fields, who also ruled out the possibility of flares. They were some kind of energy or something." Fields grabbed his Canon digital camera with 6 megapixel resolution to document what he and his wife were seeing, and snapped numerous images of the mysterious lights, which appeared white, yellow and orange. He says the phenomenon lasted an hour and 15 minutes. "I just can't imagine other people didn't see it," Fields said, noting they appeared at times like a yo-yo at 5 to 10 degrees above the horizon.

Earlier this month, the Chicago Tribune reported workers for United Air Lines said they saw a flying saucer like object hovering "low over O'Hare International Airport for several minutes before bolting through thick clouds with such intense energy that it left an eerie hole in overcast skies." That Nov. 7 sighting took place just before sunset about 4:30 p.m. According to Tribune columnist Jon Hilkevitch, "All the witnesses said the object was dark gray and well defined in the overcast skies. They said the craft, estimated by different accounts to be 6 feet to 24 feet in diameter, and did not display any lights. Snip Thanks to

Editor's Note: The image suggests the lights were out of focus using an auto focus camera that was unable to focus on the lights at a distance. The red light is identified in the article as being on a radio tower.

California Balls of Fire

Pittsburg -- At about 6:55 PM, on January 15, 2007; I was on my way to the store headed east on Frontage Road with my ten year old daughter when I noticed two bright reddish orange lights moving slow above Highway 4, railroad exit. I thought it was helicopters but they made no noise, and asked my daughter what is that? I noticed these two objects, turning west very slowly, so I made a U-turn and told my daughter that I wanted to get the binoculars from our home. Now, the objects were above my vehicle like they were following us?

When we arrived at home, I asked my daughter to get her father and my 16 year old daughter. About 7:10 PM, we got the binoculars, my husband and my 10 year daughter both said it looked like three balls of fire. It was above us and looked like a bright fire ball, then it disappeared. After one disappeared, the other two followed after. I called 911, then UFO North West 1 866-611-8367. Then at 9:30 PM, my husband went out to have a cigar, then yelled, Lisa, I see one again! I called my 16 year old daughter to take a picture with her Polaroid digital camera. When we looked at the picture it looked like three objects instead one. Four of my neighbors also saw it.

Manteca -- The witness has taken several videos recently and feels that she is photographing unusual phenomena. On December 30, 2006, at 4:44 AM using a Sony Handycam Digital Camcorder with tripod about 90 Miles east of San Francisco.

Investigator's Notes: My initial impression is that the light could be a meteor. It could possibly be a regular jet aircraft, but it doesn't exhibit any strobing like you would see from a regular aircraft. The Quadrantids meteor showers are supposed to have been visible from December 28, 2006 to January 7, 2007. In conclusion I am not sure of the identification of the object in this video. I do not believe that it is an "unconventional aircraft."

Colorado Photo Investigation

Colorado Springs AIRPORT -- Chuck Zukowski, Colorado Assistant State MUFON Director read the Colorado Springs sighting in Filer's Files # 1 concerning the witness who was driving in blizzard conditions on December 20, at 8 AM who took this picture.

I remember that day that morning roughly at 8:15 AM. I remember seeing aircraft on the way to work because I called my wife and stated, "Well there are planes going out of Colorado Springs so maybe this storm isn't going to be that bad." But to challenge the sighting I did a little investigating. 1. I Contacted Colorado Springs Airport Operations. They have not returned my call as of this email 2. I Contacted Joan at "A Travel Advantage Inc" travel agency here in the 'Springs. She stated she thought airplanes were coming in and out that morning. She showed no cancellations.

3. I Contacted Jeffry "representative with Northwest Airlines" He stated Northwest had nothing going in or out until 2 PM that day.

4. I Contacted SkyWest Airlines which run shuttle services on 12/20/06.
a. 6:32 AM an Airplane took off.
b. 9:31 AM an Airplane landed at Colorado Springs..

Nothing was flying to Denver from Colorado Springs because Denver was shut down but "not" Colorado Springs. She showed delays not cancellations from Colorado Springs.

Summary: Using SkyWest as an example, airplanes did take off and land within the 8 AM, time frame and the photo may be of an aircraft. The Colorado Springs Airport was not closed. I also saw aircraft that morning which confirmed that. This turned out to be a picture with an airplane in it and an uniformed observer. Thanks to Chuck Zukowski,

Georgia Tom Sheets MUFON State Director Returns

I'm glad to report Tom Sheets is the new Georgia MUFON State Director. The former director Mark Ausmus has done a great job and I thank him for his excellent work.

NORTHERN GEORGIA – Brian Vike reports the witness wrote, "Hi, I saw your pictures of "scoop marks" and I have a very similar mark on my right knee. At first I thought it was an insect or spider bite, but it didn't heal and it's been three days. When I woke up that morning, I felt strange, like something just wasn't right. It felt like I had a mild hangover, but I had nothing to drink the night before. When I got to work, my right knee felt weird... not itchy, not stinging, more of a tingling sensation. I looked down and saw what I thought was a spider bite or something -- there was a small (about 1 mm) indentation in my flesh. It didn't bleed but it did leak a clear puss substance (white blood cells?).

The leaking went on all day and then finally stopped. It's been three days now and it's still not healed... there's no scab, just light red flesh in the concave scooped area, and the skin around it is pink. I just figured it was a spider bite or something until I saw the scoop mark pictures on The picture was taken three days after I first noticed the mark. Thanks to Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research.

Hawaii Orange Lights and a Unknown Dome

Paia, Maui - On January 13,. 2007, about 7:53 PM, I stepped outside and noticed a bright light coming from near the top on the northwest slope of Haleakala Volcano, . Then a second light appeared just to the right of it, then the first light faded out. For a moment I thought I was watching aircraft, but soon a very bright orangish light appeared over the mountain, much brighter than any aircraft light from that distance, then blinked out. More lights appeared at various elevations, some in front of the volcano face, some above. Some moved quickly like shooting stars, some kept a steady trajectory and moved slower. They all seemed headed to the same place, the location of the original light on the volcano. As many as seven lights of various intensities were in the sky at once. After about 5 minutes, the quadrant of the sky over and in front of the mountain seemed to brighten suddenly, like stadium lights had been turned on. I went in and got my binoculars for a closer look. I could now tell they were definitely not headlights or airplane lights.

In fact, over the past couple of months, I have noticed a bare spot in the very area that this activity was taking place that has some reflective dome structure. The other day as I drove up the mountain, that area was covered with a huge white oval. This was very odd considering the mountainside there is rugged and steep slopes, but this was a perfectly round, smooth oval shape, probably the size of three football fields just sitting there.

At one point, a very strong bright organish light appeared high above the area at or near the top of the mountain where I had noticed the other lights seemed to be heading to. Then a light came on below it off to the right, at what seemed to be this mystery location near the top of the mountain. Then another bright, steady light appeared from the left and moved across the top along the ridge of the mountain. When it reached a position where it made a perfect triangle with the light above, it blinked out, but the other two remained steady. Then it reappeared, at the same altitude but much closer to the light on the mountain. It slowly moved to the left till it merged with the light on the mountain. Then all three went out.

Maryland Blinking With Two Large Flood Lights

Joppa Town - On January 17, 2007, my hussband, myself and our two daughters were driving home from my father's house on Route 40 East heading east from Baltimore to Edgewood Maryland. Right before we hit Joppa Town, there was an object about 100 feet up to the left of the car that I thought was an airplane. Then, I noticed it wasn't moving and it was blinking two large flood lights in the front and on the sides. They were flashing on and off slowly. There were numerous small blinking red lights that were blinking around the perimeter, they were blinking at a much faster rate. It hovered there, and we were actually driving, we never saw it leave, it just got out of our view. It made me just feel very confused. I really thought it was a plane, so I was looking at it waiting for it to move. My husband was seeing this also. He is the one who pointed out to me it was not a plane. We live very close to Aberdeen Proving Grounds. I'm more inclined to think it was something from the military. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Michigan Orb UFO

Clinton County -- Patty Donahue I recently took photos of strange orb like objects near my home at 8:58 PM. What the strange part is, is that the pictures show NOTHING like what my husband and I both saw. I asked him again last night, and he agreed, the smaller object looked like a white blur/orb. Thanks Patty Donahue Michigan MUFON FI

Kentucky Small Puncture Marks

I awoke this morning, Thursday, January 18, 2007. I was very cold, and my right hand was numb. The house was warm, thermostat at 69 degrees. My entire right side felt so cold. It was about half an hour before I could warm up my right side. I felt a soreness in my left arm and found a small bruise (about two inches in diameter) with three very small puncture marks that was not there when I went to bed. Wednesday evening I was feeling very tired and went to bed early, about 9:45 pm. This is odd for normally I stay up until nearly midnight before I go to bed, and I always get up at 5 am. This morning it was 6:34 AM when I awakened. I keep an alarm clock beside my bed, with lighted red numbers showing the time. It is now about 16 hours after I awakened and the bruise has shrunk in size quite a bit, and the three puncture marks are almost healed. I have taken four photos of the injury.

Today when I took the picture of my injury, a red circle appeared in the view screen, centered on the bruise. My camera does not have a targeting grid or cross hairs in the view finder. I cannot explain this. I am a MUFON Field Investigator #10332.

North Carolina Low Level Lights

Fayetteville -- It was January 14, 2007, at 9:26 PM, my brother, his friend, and I were outside on the trampoline. We were looking at the sky watching the stars when all of a sudden we saw some arrows pointing north. It was big with lights but as it got closer the lights became red. We all watched in amazement as the ship quickly dashed away and disappeared. After that we saw a few more, but we did not stop going outside that night or after that. We are all still in amazement for that night we saw UFOs. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Ohio Oval Shaped UFO with Bright Beam of Light

Sheffield Lake - The witnesss says, " What I saw on January 4, 2007, at 8:30 PM EST, was something really strange. I saw an oval shaped object in the sky with blinking lights on the side about 10 Miles West of Cleveland." The colors were blue, red , green and many more. Then there was a really bright white beam that came from the underside of the object. Visibility was 10 miles in light rain with broken clouds and overcast skies at 9,500 Feet.

Investigator's Notes: Whatever the witness saw was flying under 6,000 feet given the cloud conditions at the time of the sighting. More description is needed regarding the white beam mentioned by the witness. I have written to the witness to obtain more details. This case will be referred to a local investigator in the Cleveland. Any updates will be posted. Thanks to Will Puckett UFOs Northwest

Pennsylvania UFO Photographed

Frogtown -- Late on the night of Wednesday, January 17, around 11:30 PM, I noticed a strange red light is the sky. It was about the size of a car and was falling from the sky from east to west over 272 in the area of Shiprock road. My girlfriend and I were taking our dog out when we noticed it. It was a reddish pinkish color with a reddish haze around the outside. The light from the object was so bright that the pavement on the road had the red light cast on it. It fell slowly towards the West and once it was close to the ground suddenly disappeared. I am extremely skeptical as to what this was. I know it was not a flair, this was far too big, high and bright but similar in color. I called WGAL (News 8) right when I had seen this and reported it.

Then on Thursday a friend who was traveling north about 2 miles from where I was on the 17th, at 11:30, had reported seeing the same mysterious light. Our stories were identical when we compared notes. I know more people had seen the object, there were cars traveling on 272 at the time and there's no way you could miss this thing. I would greatly appreciate if you looked into this further. This was a large object, again about the size of a 4 door car, where ever it landed it should be visible. It went down behind the tree line somewhere starting from the west of 272 in the Shiprock road area heading towards the Frogtown area. Please let me know if your hear anything more or find anything out. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Shawn Douglas and to MUFON CMS

Tennessee White Light

Mountain City -- Witness reports that he was stopped at a traffic light on the south side of town on January 2, 2007, at 07:25 AM, when he spotted a metallic disc shaped object moving slowly westward under solid cloud cover. As he watched the object, a driver beside him rolled down his window and yelled at the reporting witness regarding the object. The witness then rolled down his window to answer the other witness and as they looked back the object had vanished. Thanks to Kim Shaffer and MUFON CMS

Illustration of similar UFO photo

Nashville AIRBORNE -- I was looking out of the airplane's window on December 17, 2007,when out of nowhere a large, rocket-shaped UFO appeared. It was right outside of my window moving at a slow, steady pace. It was as large as the wing of the plane with a metallic body, a silver nose, and without wings. It was very close to the top of the plane and flew directly over my head. Behind it was a white stream of smoke. I do not think anyone else noticed it, as most people were sleeping or focused on something else. Because I didn't want to alarm anyone, I did not go to the other side of the plane to see it. I was not sure what I saw, so I didn't say anything until I realized what I saw was, in fact, a UFO. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Argentina: Mystery Crash

EL MANZANO MOUNTAIN -- Beatriz Prieto of the Las Palmas farm informed police that an object had crashed or collided against the slopes of the El Manzano Mountain on mid-morning January 18, 2007. The nature of the body is still undetermined, but numerous witnesses claim having seen a fireball falling at high speed against the Andean massif. "It looked like an airplane in flames that exploded when it hit ground," Police determined that the crash on an unknown flying object occurred against one of the peak's slopes at an altitude of 4200 meters and about 100 km from Quijano.

Dardo Gustavo Tolaba, chief of the Chicoana Sheriffs' Office, claims that they managed to see the object with high resolution binoculars during our approach and we saw it was something large and metallic.

A Civil Aviation airplane took off early yesterday to photograph it, but was unable to reach the high altitude and returned to the airport.

A recovery team reached the impact area looking for survivors but found no indication of a crash of any kind.

The object observed by many witnesses remains unknown. (Translation (c) 2007, S. Corrales, IHU. Special thanks to Mercedes Casas)

Brazil Photo Taken by Former Military

Natal -- Photo taken by Roberto Di Sena, former military. He described taken the photo anytime between 8:30 and 10 AM, on November 26, 2006, in a location called Alagamar, periphery of the city of Natal, state of Rio Grande no Norte, Brazil. Di Sena did not observe anything unusual in the sky and took several pictures at random, deleting a few later. Fortunately, he did not delete this one. The camera used was a Pentax Optio 60 6.0 megapixels.

Canada Disk UFO Photo

BRITISH COLUMBIA -- On January 18, 2007, it was a giant green light on the ground, but the light was pointing up into the sky. It was off in the distance, but we could see in clearly. It looked like it was giving out green cloud. It was round, yet oval. It sort-of looked like a cone at a time. It was very bright. It left right when we stopped looking for a minute. We where quite scared at the time but we knew what we where doing. Once again I would like to state that we do have footage and many pictures of the sighting. At one time a pink light came just the same, but closer to us, then it left in a quick minute. At the time we were just watching TV in our room and it appeared. It was so bright it caught our attention very quickly. We knew right away it was a UFO.

China Destroys Satellite

Xichang -- The Chinese launched an anti-satellite missile to destroy an orbiting satellite the morning of January 12, 2007. 5:28 p.m. EST. Spectacular rocket launches often cause 'UFO' reports for hundreds of miles around The attack is believed to have occurred as the weather satellite flew at 530 miles altitude 4 degrees west of Xichang. U. S. Air Force Defense Support Program missile warning satellites in geosynchronous orbit detected the Xichang launch of the Asat kill vehicle and U. S. Air Force Space Command monitored the FY-1C orbit both before and after the kill. The test shows that the Chinese military can threaten the imaging reconnaissance satellites operated by the U. S., Japan, Russia, Israel and Europe.

Colombia Football Shaped UFO

NOBSA -- EL TIEMPO.COM reports, Witnesses claim that shiny football shaped objects that flew overhead had lights that changed colors. Jose Guio, a plastic arts instructor was taking photos at 4:30 PM, on December 31, 2006, when he saw an elliptical object like an American football, crossing the sky. It floated in a single place for 40 minutes and then moved slowly toward a mountain known as Cruz de Aranda. Ramiro Barragán, the town mayor said that he had seen two similar UFOs "suspended in the air" on January 7, 2007, at Puntalarga at 3:30 PM, and changed colors. It shifted from yellow to black to white. Adolfo Zárate, another witness said. "It spun on its axis and was orange-colored. Then another object showed up."

Alvaro Bonilla, a member of Contacto Ovni Colombia - traveled to Nobsa to collect information and after analyzing the photos claimed that they were non-terrestrial objects. "This is evident from their characteristics and the way they flew." A team of engineers climbed next to Cruz de Aranda and their compasses went haywire from a concentration of magnetic power.

Iran Shoots Down U.S. Spy Drone

TEHRAN -- Liang Youchang, reports, "Iranian troops recently shot down a U.S. pilotless spy plane, an Iranian parliament lawmaker Seyed Nezam Mola Hoveizeh. announced on Tuesday. "The aircraft was brought down when it was trying to cross the border during the last few days," he said according to the local Fars News Agency. He said," the United States sent such spy drones to the region every now and then.

It was reported Tuesday that a second U.S. aircraft carrier, the USS John C. Stennis, with 80 tactical aircraft will arrive in the Middle East in about three weeks. This is first time since the U.S.-led Iraq war in 2003 that the United States will have two carrier battle groups in the region. The carrier will join Fifth Fleet aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower. Patriot missiles are also being sent . U.S. Defense Secretary Robert accuses Iran of using its influence to meddle in the region, especially in Lebanon and the Shiite-majority in Iraq.

Shahin Missile

State-run Iranian television said. "The elite Revolutionary Guards have begun five day missile exercise in northern Iran about 60 miles southeast of Tehran showing the ability of the "Zalzal-1 and Fajr-5 missiles carrying an 1800 pound warhead to strike US ships.

UAVs Probably Now Flying over Iran

Northrop Grumman is developing the J-UCAS (Joint Unmanned Combat Air Systems) designated X-47B to conduct surveillance and launch weapons. This aircraft is unmanned and being developed for both the Air Force and Navy. The airframe of the X-47B is the size of a jet fighter. It has a powerful P&W F 100 turbofan engine, and redesigned outer wing sections and intake/exhaust configurations. The wing extensions provide for longer range and better low-speed characteristics, and are foldable to reduce parking space on an aircraft carrier. The payload capacity for J-UCAS was to be 2040 kg (4500 lb), representing two GBU-31/B JDAM (Joint Direct Attack Munitions) GPS/INS-guided bombs. Northrop Grumman was under contract to build two (originally three) X-47Bs, and flight testing, together with the rival Boeing X-45C, was expected to begin in 2007. Other classified programs are under development and may be tested over Iran. General atomics is already building the Reaper and Predator. It is working on a new improved Predator C with a new airframe with stealth qualities and low observability.
