*Update Comment From Researcher on AMP (Abduction/Ambient Project
MUFON has had an almost-secret --or at least under publicized-- project going called
THE AMBIENT MONITORING PROJECT: MUFON Journal July 2008 #483.
MUFON has nearly completed AMP, a clandestine monitoring project, placing hidden sensors about the size of a woman’s makeup compact in homes where ET abductions have been reported and painstakingly evaluated by respected field researchers.
AMP’s designers treated their ET adversary as intelligent beings capable of insight and not easily fooled. MUFON researchers designed the device so that if ET interfered with the mechanism --in any detectable way-- that interference would have been detected, adding evidence to the conclusion something physical was going on. So far, not one unexplainable physical mechanical interference with AMP equipment was detected except one… a cat. Hey, Cleo, stop that!
This kind of controlled, active investigation and intervention are necessary if we ever want to go beyond passive research and investigating after the fact. I believe this kind of program is crucial in producing evidence of intelligences behind UFOs, non-human entities apparently involved with abductions, and other types of unexplainable experiences.
Remember as you read this, that MUFON has always had a very limited budget; these researchers are doing the best they can with what they have. It took years to get the funding for this project and still it wasn’t complete. So this crucial research went on ad hoc, as more donated funds became available. Three cheers to MUFON and all those doing the careful planning over years, and the real footwork!
And remember this, too: your friendly, highly trained MUFON researcher is not being paid a dime.
Thanks to you all, from UFO Media Matters!
In 1998, the beginning of the hardware side of a plan was implemented by engineer and MUFON member Tom Deuley. Deuley agreed to design the sensor equipment to be placed in homes where residents had well documented abduction experiences. After three years of building and testing, MUFON researchers were ready. Each test site centered on experiencers hand-picked by respected UFO abduction researchers. Names of researchers have not been released yet.
Small sensor units were built into what look like a wooden jewelry box. Sensors measured activity every second, and downloaded data to outside computers. AMP spanned three years of testing plus two years of active research.

Final analysis of the data is being done anonymously --outside MUFON-- so objectivity is assured.
At the end of each day, the person experiencing abductions kept a time and date journal tracking whether they experienced an abduction or not. Their journal records are now being compared to the sensor evidence.
If their experience of abductions have been happening while the sensors were operating, then we have strong evidence these experiences are a real and external phenomenon. What type of sensor is inside these boxes MUFON doesn’t say in the latest article, but most of us can guess. After all, we’ve had baby monitors --often accidentally revealing babysitter and nanny misdeeds-- for more than a decade; we’ve had widely available extremely sophisticated motion sensors for nearly half a century. Not to mention cell phone cams.
But what does it take to game those MUFON AMP sensors? Tom Cruise in black tights on fly wires?
Hollywood aside, whatever ET is, there has been at least half a century in America of what we’ve come to call alien abduction, a significant period of modern history with these entities evading physical detection long enough to fail to satisfy most of us in our daylight world that abductees were not…just dreaming.
Will the AMP sensors be enough? A half-century of abduction reports, apparently with no believable photographic or electronic records, shows us we have at least, a cautious, canny adversary. Being smarter than ET means just that. Have we been smarter enough? Have we done enough?
MUFON is continuing to do some good boots on the ground active investigation of: on-going UFO phenomenon. Ted Phillips and his team are using new equipment on the Marley Woods lights. They have also investigated multi-contact cases in their homes as it is happening.
I intend, though, to keep my antenna up for what is found on this AMP abduction research. If AMP finds something very significant it may be a presented at a MUFON symposium.
In many of my posts I mention the botched-up job NIDS did at Skinwalker Ranch. My main complaint was how NIDS research teams treated the phenomenon as if it were not intelligent. Of course they had their clock cleaned.
But in the end, NIDS still didn’t get the idea. This idea is one of my main concepts behind Alien Specie Psychology; that is, ETs probably played watch-the NIDS-team- arrive and set up their equipment to monitor them and played with them… ‘played with them’ as in, took a humorous, thoughtful, interactive approach to the situation.

Did A Death Occur During An Abduction?
The NIDS-Skinwalker Ranch debacle shows that we have at least some ET-like or ET-associated phenom produced not by the mono-emotional type creatures that are baffled by us, as ETs appear in most abduction reports, but rather, with creatures I believe are very astute, cognizant of our variable behavior, and at times, who make fun of our behavior.
What these Skinwalker Ranch intelligences did was funny, maybe because what these possible-ETs watched NIDS do was definitely funny…the scientific team comes in and in broad daylight, with no camouflaging at all, they shimmy up poles to install cameras and camera-monitoring units up snug and secure. And what’s more, researchers openly discussed, right in the areas of most frequently reported activity, their research program and security plan. NIDS did this because they didn’t worry about being overheard, since the other side was nothing more than…strange lights. Right!
Made the ETs’ day, I bet.
If you haven’t looked at the Skinwalker Ranch case yet, what happened, among other things, is the “metaphysical phenomenon”, the lights, literally destroyed one of NIDS monitor cameras while the destruction was being filmed by another monitor camera. The black electrical tape used to hold the camera wires in place all the way up the post were neatly unwound and left at the bottom of the post in neat bundles.
Talk about sticking it in your face…
However, the scientists say they were baffled as to what it could have been that carefully dismantled surveillance cameras and security set-ups. There were all kinds of phenomenon, NIDS Skinwalker Ranch researchers say… couldn’t be one source…
Yes it could.
I’ve read through the Skinwalker Ranch book and couldn’t find one example of a phenomenon reported at the Gordon’s ranch that couldn’t been achieved through very advanced technology.
Anyway, back to MUFON and THE AMBIENT MONITORING PROJECT. There can be only three scenarios which could be played out in a final analysis of this data.
1. The Entities are caught off guard and MUFON gets some startling evidence.
2. The Entities know what is happening because they can read abductees’ minds and decide to either participate, by giving some evidence --although not necessarily conclusive evidence-- or fool the detectors.
3. The people are not having true abductions or are having other experiences or hoaxing.
It may be that now ETs are letting us slowly know they are here.
Sci-Fi writers have written with insight about intelligent ETs, exploring possibilities that intelligence shows up in non-human cultures through more, and different facets of those cultures and individuals than just technology.
In Sci-Fi literature the matter of intelligence also being wise is a major theme; we can go to hundreds of books and stories that investigate how great wisdom may choose to show or disguise itself. Sci-Fi is full of how the decision to conceal or reveal may come after millennia of experience gleaned by revelation experiments, as aliens of all kinds, individuals, cultures, and galaxy-wide alliances of cultures and worlds decide to hide contact until a species is ready.
*"Joe--As one of the researchers involved with AMP AMP (Abduction/Ambient Project) from the outset, I'd like to add a few clarifications to your fine post. First, MUFON was but one of three organizations equally involved with creating and administering the Abduction/Ambient Monitoring Project--the other two were the Center for UFO Studies and the Fund for UFO Research. The three groups comprise the UFO Research Coalition (incorporated in Virginia) and Coalition directors ran--and continue to run--the project. Second, Tom Deuley was an employee of the Coalition and was one of many who contributed to the evolving designs of the instrument box. Third, we don't yet know if the instruments detected any unusual patterns or events related to abductions: They might have; they might not have. At the moment, a statistician engaged by the Coalition is examining the data for any patterns, correlations, and/or anomalies that might be present. Even subtle patterns could reveal insights.The statistician is expensive, however, and is paid by the hour. As such, the Coalition couldn't afford many hours and desperately needs additional funding to complete the task in a timely manner. If anyone is interested in contributing $$ (tax deductible ones at that!), please contact MUFON or CUFOS or me for information on how this can be done.Joe, as always, thanks for bringing a rational viewpoint to UFO research through your posts. They're provocative, fascinating, and intelligently-reasoned."--Rob Swiatek
