Unidentified flying objects sighted by US Navy personnel were definitely not conventional drones, a former Pentagon analyst has said.
Jay Stratton, a former Senior Analyst for the Office of Naval Intelligence who headed up the US government's UAP task force, rubbished the official explanation for the “unexplained aerial phenomena” that shadowed a group of US Navy ships in July 2019.
Speaking at AlienCon in Pasadena on March 5, Stratton and his chief scientist Travis Taylor said that despite official explanations, the triangular shape of the strange objects captured on video by naval personnel had not been a simple trick of the light.
Explaining that one of his first degrees was in optical science and engineering, Taylor said that close analysis of the footage proves that whatever had buzzed the USS Russell on that July night, it was not a simple battery-power quadcopter.
“The thing up close does have some sort of triangular shape to it,” he pointed out. “But also when you do a heat analysis on it, you see it has bright spots on each corner. I don't know what that is, I just know it had bright spots on each corner”.
Stratton said that his former bosses, Scott Bray and Ronald Moultrie, had given a sanitised interpretation of the video clips to the House Intelligence Committee, promoting the idea that the intruders had been simple drones launched from a nearby freighter, the Hong Kong-registered Bass Strait.
“We did not brief him that way,” Taylor said. “That is not what we told him”.

Official documents released under the Freedom of Information Act show that the “drones” showed extraordinary abilities .
They were able to hover at altitudes of up to 21,000ft, fly for more than four hours at a stretch, covering incredible distances and shrugging off the effects of military-grade anti-drone technology.
Taylor said that the objects sighted by Navy personnel were far in advance of any known drone technology.
The naval exercise was taking place in a no-fly zone, and no known drone has the range to reach the ships unless it had been launched from a ship or aircraft that was completely invisible to the naval group’s state-of-the-art radar and sonar.
“So one of the things we were concerned about was that one of our peers developed battery technology that we don't have,” Taylor said.
“If a foreign submarine got that close to the United States,” he added, “then I failed at every job that I've ever had. Naval Intelligence would not have let that happen”.

If there had been evidence that a hostile power had managed to sneak a submarine that close to the US West coast “We would have jumped to probably Defcon Four or Three at that point,” Taylor said, “and we didn’t”.
Responding to criticism that he had exaggerated some of the evidence in order to increase his notoriety in UFO-hunter circles, Taylor said: “t wasn't that we wanted an alien spacecraft to be flying around.
“We worked for the military. We wanted to see why this was happening, why was there something where it shouldn't be, and how can we figure out what it is and stop it?”
