PROJECT BLUE BOOK - HQ, 4602D AISS AISOP SUBJ: MONTHLY UFOB
SUMMARY, OCT 55 - 01 OF 03 //VOL CCN//

The following is section one of three dealing with the initial
UFO analysis by the 4602nd Air Intelligence Service Squadron.
Tacked on is an UNofficial history of Project Blue Book which is
a fascinating outside view of the U.S. Air Force approach to
handling the UFO reports.

These three sections are currently running on CC-2, a virtual
teletype circuit in the JANAP 128 format. Turn your sound on
if you want to hear a simulation of low-speed teletype noise.

IN HIS BOOK (SEE EXTERNAL LINKS) RUPPELT DESCRIBED THE DEMORALIZATION
OF THE BLUE BOOK STAFF AND THE STRIPPING OF THEIR INVESTIGATIVE DUTIES
FOLLOWING THE ROBERTSON PANEL. AS AN IMMEDIATE CONSEQUENCE OF THE
ROBERTSON PANEL RECOMMENDATIONS, IN FEBRUARY 1953, THE AIR FORCE
ISSUED REGULATION 200-2, ORDERING AIR BASE OFFICERS TO PUBLICLY
DISCUSS UFO INCIDENTS ONLY IF THEY WERE JUDGED TO HAVE BEEN SOLVED,
AND TO CLASSIFY ALL THE UNSOLVED CASES TO KEEP THEM OUT OF THE PUBLIC EYE.
THE SAME MONTH, INVESTIGATIVE DUTIES STARTED TO BE TAKEN ON BY THE
NEWLY FORMED 4602ND AIR INTELLIGENCE SQUADRON (AISS) OF THE AIR
DEFENSE COMMAND. THE 4602ND AISS WAS TASKED WITH INVESTIGATING
ONLY THE MOST IMPORTANT UFO CASES WITH INTELLIGENCE OR NATIONAL
SECURITY IMPLICATIONS. THESE WERE DELIBERATELY SIPHONED AWAY FROM
BLUE BOOK, LEAVING BLUE BOOK TO DEAL WITH THE MORE TRIVIAL REPORTS.
GENERAL NATHAN TWINING, WHO GOT PROJECT SIGN STARTED BACK IN 1947,
WAS NOW AIR FORCE CHIEF OF STAFF. IN AUGUST 1954, HE WAS TO FURTHER
CODIFY THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE 4602ND AISS BY ISSUING AN UPDATED
