Two major Army Commands are involved--the Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) and the Department of Army Materiel Develop- ment and Readiness Command (DARCOM). O ~~ ~I hIvl 1 ~IrGt is troll / Sov cf Gomo.r,HC..,r ns At AC - - 77/6 7 'P4T Within DARCOM, two sub-agencies are carrying on the work; Army Materiel Systems Analysis Activity (AMSAA) will try to validate Remote Viewing experiments done by the Stanford Research Institute (SRI). In September 1978 AMSAA, using Program VI funds, contracted with SRI to do a number of tac- tically oriented Remote Viewing tasks. The contract was for $100 thousand. In 1979 AMSAA extended the contract with SRI to April 1980. Again, Program VI funds were used: $120 thousand. This gave AMSAA a total commitment of $220 thousand from September 1978 to April 1980. The Missile Research and Development Command (MIRADCOM) at Redstone Arsenal had a small $80 thousand contract with SRI from August 1977 to August 1978. The work was done under the sponsorship of a MIRADCOM sub-element, the Missile Intelligence Agency (MIA), a GDIP Unit. MIA's interest was in psychokinesis (now called Remote Perturbation).

The project will be in two phases ($400 thousand (Program VI funds) have been set aside for this project): First, from May 1979 to September 1979 SRI will assist MIRADCOM in developing sensitive measurement equipment for the experiment. The contract for this part was just let using Program VI funds: $118 thousand. Phase II, for which a contract with SRI will be let contingent on approval of the Army Surgeon General's GRILL FLAME review panel, will be for approximately $90 thousand. This may involve human subjects. The part now done by MIA will soon pass to the Missile R&D Laboratory, another MIRADCOM element, who will use the remaining $192 thousand. INSCOM will attempt to apply remote viewing to intelligence collection. If successful, this will also independently verify previous experiments. INSCOM is working with a small team selected for this purpose. Three full time and eight part time personnel are involved at Fort Meade and Arlington Hall. INSCOM will hold an in-process review this Fall. The total amount of funds under contract is $75 thousand to SRI to train and familiarize the team members in Remote Viewing techniques and experimental procedure.. Approximately $25 thousand end of year funds will be requested in FY 80. There is $150 thousand included for GRILL FLAME in the Army HUMINT program in FY 81. :C add FLnWE (9) 2 in, Q0 UU 0 Low SECREY Approved For Release 2001/04/02 : CIA-RDP96-00788RO01100060009-6 Approved For Release 20011~1~ffjDP96-00788 R001100060009-6 To ensure scientific credibility, the Army is forming a Special Science Monitoring Team for GRILL FLAME. Composed of scientist, engineers and medical doctors from DOD and industry, the team will conduct on-the-spot inquiries through- out the program and will report directly to the Army Under Secretary.
