"They chased us for 1,5 hours": In the US, they talked about a series of "encounters" of destroyers with unidentified drones in the summer of 2019

47

Some details of the incidents with US Navy warships off the coast of California began to appear in the American media. This is a chain of events that took place in the summer of 2019.


Crews of several US Navy destroyers, including the Arleigh Burke USS Kidd (DDG-100) destroyer, have reported numerous aircraft in the skies in the immediate vicinity of the ships. It was noted that the sailors called these devices "unidentified aircraft" or "drones".

In one of the reports:

A group of unidentified UAVs of six units pursued our ship for several minutes. Then these drones or aircraft began to perform unsafe maneuvers. We were about 100 miles off the California coast.

American documentary filmmaker Dave Beaty decided to devote a journalistic investigation to those events. He notes that the military command is interested in the incidents with American warships.

Initially, a version appeared that drones could be launched by tourists from Channel Island or sailors (passengers) of civilian ships. However, the aircraft allegedly did not exactly look like a typical hobbyist copter.

It turned out that other American ships, including the destroyers Raphael Peralta, John Finn, Paul Hamilton, Russell, and others, met with "unidentified aircraft" in approximately the same area.
In the logbook of one of the US Navy warships, it was noted that several unknown aircraft appeared near the ship at about 22:00.

The logbook indicates that the drones in the first phase moved at the same speed as the destroyer USS Kidd. Moreover, the flight was carried out not only in the dark, but also in conditions of poor visibility. It was noted that in total, the "pursuit" of the US Navy destroyers lasted about 1,5 hours.



The "meeting" was repeated the next day. The appearance was recorded at approximately 20:39 local time.

They chased us for 1,5 hours several times

The crew of the destroyer USS Rafael Peralta has passed on a request to the cruise ship Carnival Imagination to see if the drones may belong to them. From there came the answer that the aircraft did not belong to them, as well as confirmation that in the sky they also see up to six drones maneuvering nearby.

The US press complains that the command began an investigation only 4 days after the first "incident". As a result, the FBI was involved. The agents decided to investigate one of the ships, which had been in that area for several days. A check was reportedly carried out on board. It was possible to establish that the drone is there, but it is not capable of staying in the air for more than half an hour, and its dimensions are not at all the same as those indicated by the US Navy sailors.

It is also indicated that the investigation was working out the option of the ownership of the drones by the US Navy itself. But, according to the representatives of the Navy themselves, they have not carried out any operations with drones off the coast of California.

A few days later, drones began to appear over the warships of the US Navy again. New activity was recorded from 25 to 30 July 2019 - around 0: 30-1: 30.

As the American The Drive writes, it is noteworthy that "new incidents have already occurred during the investigation."

From the material:

It turns out that someone controlled these aircraft very impudently. Based on the data obtained, the drones could cover a distance of about 100 miles. It is also puzzling that the drones acted in a coordinated manner. And at other times there were 6 units in the air. How could an ordinary operator carry out such maneuvers, and even at night in poor visibility conditions?

It is noted that one of the explanations is some secret training of the American military from the island of San Clemente, where the military facility is located.

From the material:

The investigation eventually reached the highest level. So far, only one thing is known for sure - the Navy has a large array of data on these "meetings." But if the aircraft were not operated by the American military, then this is already a serious security threat. An even greater threat could be the use of such drones by a foreign country.

The investigation is said to be ongoing.

      And what is quite possible ... at the bottom of the sea it is quite possible to make an underwater base ... smile some angry captain Nemo from Iran or North Korea sits there and takes revenge on the Americans by driving their destroyers with drones along the coast of California.
      Not what the plot is for an action movie ... in these drones you can put bottles with a Novice, bats with Covid, all sorts of test tubes with OV and BO, and this whole armada controlled by the AI ​​Ultron flies to storm the White House ... beauty.

          How did the "super-duper" system work? Aegis ?
          She targets - " either drones or airplanes ", carrying a clear threat (follows from the panic in the reports) identified and tracked? If so, why not destroyed?

          Questions remain, if not about UAVs, then about the capabilities of the air defense of the American Navy, and the level of adequacy in the perception and further interpretation of the event by the command.

      What are ufologists? For what ? The submarine, in poor visibility conditions, releases a drone capable of moving both in the air and in the water. To steer the aircraft, a control-transmitting-receiving buoy is produced on a cable cable. It's just business ... if you stick in a thermal imager ...

    The drones were most likely photographed by infrared cameras and "imprinted" by radars.
    If they did not hide and did not attack, then those who commanded them
    not an aggressor, but also not afraid of exposure.

      I bet on "my own". In the United States, there are a huge number of independent structures that operate in complete secrecy. The Navy, the ILC, the Air Force, DARPA, the Coast Guard, the National Guard, the intelligence community, private developers, etc. The UAV and the ship are being double tested. China will conduct such tests closer to its shores.

        "Ours" are the most real. But usually "their own" warn the Navy about the tests
        secret technique. To avoid friendly fire.
        The ships have a lot of small anti-drone air defense, including.
        If inadvertently they shoot down their secret drones, somehow unpleasant?

          They warned them, but the ship does not have to be kept up to date. The top management of the Navy agreed, decided to test the systems and the crew of the ship. There was no direct and obvious threat, so the captain requested the command to open fire from the leadership, there was no permission. There are a lot of such stories, the vast majority of UFO reports from such tests.
          For example, for the 60-70s it is simply fantastic, and even now it would be mistaken for an alien ship flying at 3,6M.

                But the trick is that in parallel with the IR sight, these objects
                also guided the radars of the cruiser Ticonderoga.
                And they do not confuse a hot jet engine of an airplane with
                by the plane itself. And they also know how to determine the relative speed,
                the height and dimensions of the object.
                In addition, the officers observed them visually, through strong binoculars.
                In three ways, so to speak.
