Former blink-182 vocalist Tom DeLonge has been busy hunting down aliens since splitting from the band and his research is being taken a lot more seriously now.

His UFO research group – To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science – has announced a new partnership with the U.S. Army to collaborate on future research.

The collaboration allows the Army’s Ground Vehicle System Center (GVSC) and Ground Vehicle Survivability and Protection (GVSP) access to the group's research on “material science, space-time metric engineering, quantum physics, beam energy propulsion,” and  “enhance survivability and effectiveness of multiple Army systems,” according to a press release.

This comes shortly after the organization ended up releasing three videos potentially showing UFOs. Shortly after, the Navy were confirming those clips do show objects in the sky that are a total mystery.

TTSA released three videos in December 2017 and March 2018, as did the New York Times. The videos show objects in the sky that reportedly date back to the mid-2000s.

Navy spokesman Joseph Gradisher has confirmed to The Black Vault that “the Navy considers the phenomena contained/depicted in those videos as unidentified”.

Gradish explains they're using the term “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” for a specific reason instead of UFO. The term provides the basic definition or observation of an object or aircraft that is unauthorized or unidentified in different military-controlled airspaces, Gradisher added.

“Our partnership with TTSA serves as an exciting, non-traditional source for novel materials and transformational technologies to enhance our military ground system capabilities,” Dr. Joseph Cannon of U.S. Army Futures Command shared in a press release. “At the Army’s Ground Vehicle System Center, we look forward to this partnership and the potential technical innovations forthcoming.”
