    Mission Statement:

    “To ascertain the extent of official Australian Government
    knowledge of the UFO phenomenon; then to document both this and civilian knowledge on the subject.”

    The Project's aims are:
    1. To collect, collate, analyse and disseminate information about what the Australian Government currently knows of the UFO phenomenon.
    2. To document and make available the “best” Australian UFO cases held by both civilian and Government sources.
    3. To ascertain what knowledge of the UFO phenomenon may not currently be in the public domain, and seek to document and disseminate this information to interested parties.

    For further information concerning the establishment of this Project click the link to the Project background.
    An Archive of Unexplained Sightings is being established by members of the Australian UFO Research Association.
