Kevin Knuth – UAP Flight Performance


The paper “Estimating Flight Characteristics of Anomalous Unidentified Aerial Vehicles” describes UAPs as being craft with “estimated accelerations range from almost 100 g to 1000s of G’s with no observed air disturbance, no sonic booms, and no evidence of excessive heat.” Co-author & SCU researcher Dr. Kevin Knuth joins us to explain this analysis.

About Our Guest

Dr Knuth has over two decades of experience in machine learning algorithms for Astrophysics, Bayesian Probability Theory, Information Theory, Robotics, Signal Processing, Neuroscience, Nonlinear Dynamics, Quantum Mechanics, and many other areas. He’s also the editor of the peer-review open-access journal “Entropy”, as well as being a member of the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies.

In an Entropy journal paper entitled “Estimating Flight Characteristics of Anomalous Unidentified Aerial Vehicles” Knuth and co-authors by Robert M. Powell and Peter Reali performed analysis on the 2004 Nimitz Tic Tac encounters, and describe these craft as having “ Estimated accelerations range from almost 100 g to 1000s of gs with no observed air disturbance, no sonic booms, and no evidence of excessive heat,” and, ”observed flight characteristics of these craft are consistent with the flight characteristics required for interstellar travel”. We’re going to explore the implications of these statements, and the underlying assumption that if UAPs are in fact capable of intersellar travel, then they are likely to actually be vehicles of extraterrestrial origin.

Additionally, we’ll be touching on his description of UAPs as appearing to “violate the laws of physics in that they do not have flight or control surfaces, any visible means of propulsion apparently violating Newton’s Third Law, and can operate in multiple media, such as space (low Earth orbit), air, and water without apparent hindrance, sonic booms, or heat dumps.”
