Colm Kelleher: AAWSAP and the Skinwalker Enigma


Between 2008 and 2010, what is arguably one of the most atypical government investigations into the unexplained was carried out by employees with Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS) out of Las Vegas, Nevada, as part of a Defense Intelligence Agency effort known as the Advanced Aerospace Weapons Systems Applications Program, or AAWSAP.

This week on The Micah Hanks Program, we examine the controversial AAWSAP program with Colm Kelleher, Ph.D., a biochemist who between 1996-2004 led the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS) team on Skinwalker Ranch, and in 2008 became deputy administrator of BAASS where he led the day-to-day operations in executing the AAWSAP contract with Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). Kelleher shares his reflections about the program, what it discovered, and how it applies to the ongoing efforts by the Pentagon to evaluate unidentified anomalous phenomena.
