On Friday, October 18th, 2013 the Peruvian Air Force will launch a Department focused on researching the presence of anomalous aerial phenomena.
It will be called “DIFAA” which stands for the (Departamento de Investigación de Fenómenos Aéreos Anómalos or Anomalous Aerial Phenomena Research Department).
This department will be directly assisted by a Civilian Advisory Council which, as far as I know, is a unique arrangement in the world.
This council is composed of researchers,
scientists and intellectuals and it includes Commander Julio
Cesar Chamorro Flores (ret) who a few years earlier (while still
on duty) directed the Peruvian Air Force’s UFO research office
called OIFAA. During that time I also acted as a civilian advisor.
...and I, Giorgio Piacenza Cabrera,
sociologist and Exopolitics Institute advisor.
There’s also a desire to educate the civilian population on a wide variety of scientific and culturally appropriate subjects through conferences and other outreach events.
While we currently don’t operate with a
substantial budget, I think that all parties involved display a
sufficiently flexible attitude and an interest to develop a more
integrative, sui generis and still objective approach to research.
Due to the limited capacity of the venue, the event is for the most part by invitation only.
Archeologist Manuel Aguirre Morales will speak about the Nazca Lines from a more classical scientific perspective and I will speak about the possible presence of extraterrestrials and exopolitics.
Distinguished academics, relevant
political and military personalities plus the local and
international press have been invited.
As is well-known by UFO and exopolitical
researchers, many countries in the Latin American region are
actively pursuing a similar path to legitimate these issues and
overcome the unnecessary stigma attached to reporting about UFOs and
the possible or real extraterrestrial presence.
