To the Stars Academy of Arts & Science (TTSA) released a statement on their website yesterday announcing the creation of a new research project.

Known as Project ADAM, an acronym for Acquisition & Data Analysis of Materials, the project is "an academic research program focused on exotic materials for technology innovation" and "will focus on the collection and scientific evaluation of material samples obtained through reliable reports of advanced aerospace vehicles of unknown origin."

Bigelow Aerospace, part of the Pentagon's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), reportedly modified buildings held in Las Vegas for the storage of metal alloys and other materials that former Department of Defense (DoD) intelligence officer Luis Elizondo and program contractors claimed were recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena. Elizondo is currently employed as TTSA's Director of Global Security and Special Programs.

The project has, in part, been created to examine those anomalous materials, if they exist.

"As soon as TTS Academy is notified that materials are available, a thorough effort will be made to document their origin and credibility, followed by the establishment of chain-of-custody procedures and ownership protocols," the statement said. "In addition to reviewing the materials for their potential significance as evidence of exotic origin, the analysis will evaluate materials for such characteristics as exceptional strength, lightweight build and any unusual advanced properties that potentially could contribute to the development of exciting new technologies in the future."

TTSA has contracted with EarthTech International, Inc., a research think tank in Austin, Texas, to evaluate the materials.

EarthTech is run by Dr. Harold E. Puthoff, a former senior advisor and subcontractor to AATIP and current VP of Technology for TTSA.
