An attempt in Alaska to track UFO's on radar.
This was the embassy wing of the government's secret UFO investigative efforts. It was alleged that a treaty was formed to secure technology from the aliens in return for covering up their presence and permission to abduct humans at will. No explanation available as to why they needed our permission.
A project that dealt with the evaluation and application of UFO technology that would benefit our space programs.
Officially it was a UFO study proposed by Kirtland AFB, early 1950s. In truth it was the unit tasked to retrieve downed UFOs and prevent civilian access to them.
Project Rainbow was the official name for the Philadelphia Experiment, allegedly an experiment conducted upon a small destroyer escort ship during World War II, both in the Philadelphia Naval Yard and at sea; the goal was to make that ship invisible to enemy detection. The accounts vary as to whether the original idea was to achieve invisibility to enemy radar or whether the prize sought after was more profound: optical invisibility.
Established officially, January 22, 1948. AMC's Technical Intelligence Division, charged with the collection, investigation, and interpretation of data relative to unidentified flying objects, looked into more than 240 domestic and 30 foreign incidents. With assistance from several other government and private agencies, and with the entire facilities of the Wright Field laboratories at their disposal, personnel identified about 30 percent of the sightings studied as conventional aerial objects. It was expected that further probing of incidents in relation to weather balloon locations, etc., would provide commonplace answers to at least an equal number of the sky riddles. Answers were drawn from factors such as guided missile research activity, weather, and other atmospheric sounding balloons, astronomical phenomena, commercial and military aircraft flights, flights of migratory birds, shots from flare guns, practical jokers, victims of optical illusion, the phenomena of mass hallucination, etc. Project Saucer was the cover name given to the first of the Air Force UFO projects. It was circulated in the civilian community but was not an official project.
Project Second Storey
The Project Second Storey Committee was established soon after the sight of "a bright amber disc" flying at terrific flew over the North Bay Air Station on 12 April 1952, Dr. O.M. Solandt, Chairman of the Defense Research Board, convened the first meeting of what was to become the first official Canadian UFO Investigation

Project Sign: Started in Dec. 1947 and Gen. Nathanial Twining was in charge. This later was changed in Dec 1948 to Project Grudge...and then again in 1949 to the famous name "Project Bluebook"
Project Snowflake: Poisson Aerospace, a Canadian aerospace company, may have been running a top secret program during the mid-seventies that had Alberta residents convinced that they had been visited by UFOs. Located on an abandoned farm near Gilton, Alberta, the program, code-named "Project Snowflake," is rumored to have been a $136 million initiative to develop a Canadian flying saucer-style surveillance vehicle. The craft was said to be similar in appearance to the famous Avrocar flying disk, but operated on an entirely different lifting and propulsion system. Inside sources reveal that only a handful of senior aerospace experts were privy to this top-secret program, which allegedly ran between 1971 and1975. During this time a working prototype of the craft was developed and flight-tested at night in and around Gilton, Alberta. Poisson executives decided to scrap "Project Snowflake" in 1975 after stories began to circulate about local farmers seeing strange lights in the sky at night and circular markings in the snow.
Northern UFOs - Project Snowflake
Captain Edward Ruppelt, an Air Force intelligence officer, was appointed to take over Project Bluebook. A standard reporting form was developed by Ohio State University, and Ruppelt commissioned the Battelle Memorial Institute was to do a statistical study known as Project Stork.
Seven Status Reports on Project STORK
Project Twinkle: It was to be implemented by setting up three tracking stations in New Mexico equipped with 35mm movie cameras. The time, azimuth, and elevation angles of each camera would be continuously measured. If a green fireball could be detected by two of the cameras simultaneously, then the speed and altitude of the fireball could be determined by triangulation calculations. Project Twinkle never photographed even one fireball, mainly because the Air Force did not provide the necessary backing. Only one of the three proposed cameras was obtained, and the project was understaffed. A major error that kept the single camera team from even photographing one fireball was the fact that they kept moving their observation site whenever sightings were reported instead of setting up in one likely spot and waiting for the fireballs to appear. Project Twinkle, a complete failure, had been allowed to die by the time the Korean War began, an early example of the apparent Air Force reluctance to get seriously involved in the investigation of UFO phenomena.
