Project Condign (2000 U.K. UAP report)
From Kook Science
Project Condign was a multi-year UFO study conducted by DI55, a branch of the Directorate of Scientific and Technical Intelligence (DSTI) of the Defence Intelligence Staff (DIS), an intelligence department within the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence. The study examined some 10,000 reports of unidentified aerial phenomena (a.k.a. unidentified flying objects), the results published in a secret 2000 report entitled Unidentified Aerial Phenomena in the UK Air Defence Region. The project was revealed and the report declassified and released to the public in May 2006 in response to a UK FOIA request by David Clarke.

During a policy review in 1996 into the handling of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sighting reports received by the Ministry of Defence, a study was undertaken to determine the potential value, if any, of such reports to Defence Intelligence. Consistent with Ministry of Defence policy, the available data was studied principally to ascertain whether there is any evidence of a threat to the UK, and secondly, should the opportunity arise, to identify any potential military technologies of interest.
The Ministry of Defence has released this report in response to a Freedom of Information request and we are pleased to now make it available to a wider audience via the MOD Freedom of Information Publication Scheme. Where indicated information is withheld in accordance with Section 26 (Defence), Section 27 (International Relations) and Section 40 (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
