General The objective of this effort is to investigate in detail certain psychoenergetic phenomena that have potential military applications. Emphasis will be on evaluating application potential and limitations of such phenomena, and to provide such knowledge as gained under this, contract to appropriate DoD agencies who will evaluate the significance of foreign work, particularly as it may pose a threat to the US. Major emphasis will be on evaluating remote viewing phenomena and in particular, targeting aspects, via coordinate or other methods. Related to this are training methods, methods of enhancing reliability c^d repeatability of the phenomena. 2.0 Specific Tasks (FY 81) 2.1 Develop audio/semantic analysis techniques to separate correct 4. from incorrect data, available from taped viewer descriptions of remote viewing sites and to provide selective editing under operational conditions. 2.2 Determine what is required for target acquistion (names, maps, ~. coordinates, pictures, arbitrary labelings, simply the word "target", etc.) 2.3 Evaluate threat potential of foreign remote viewing - type investigations: 2.3.1 Simulate experimental results for which there is data to assess validity of the foreign research. 2.3.2 Assess military applications potential of the foreign research (or claims), particularly where a threat to US security is possible. 2.3.3 Assess feasibility of the most significant applications and evaluate limitations.

It will specifically undertake the task of developing and evaluating a training program designed to increase the reliability of remote viewing and seek to gain better data on operational targets. 2.4.1 Evaluate the use of remote viewing to locate target objects or people. 2.4.2 Evaluate the use of remote viewing for event detection and to locate events. 2.4.3' Evaluate the use of remote viewing to detect the presence or absence of targets. 2.4.4 Evaluate the potential of various camouflage, concealment and deception as countermeasures to remote viewing. 2.4.5 Investigate the effects of the following variables on the remote viewing phenomena. (a) accuracy, (b) degree of resolution, (c) affect the sensory inputs (feel, smell, touch, etc). c' .2.4.6 Determine potential of remote viewing to assess other types of information, such as specific S&T data, or function/purpose of facilities or activities. 2.5 It is anticipated that during the contract period there will bP quick reaction tasks approved by the Grill Flame committee, passed thro(gh the COTR and levied on the contractor. These will be of high priority are will require prompt attention. Approved For Release 2003/09/09 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001200020004-4 Approved For Release 2003/09/09 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001200020004-4 3.

CONTRACTING OFFICER'S TECHNICAL REPRESENTATIVE (COTR) Approved For Release 2003/09/09 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001200020004-4 ~YlL.L E Approved For Release 2003/09/09 CIA-RDP96-00788RO01200020004-4 REPORTS 1. These reports will present a concise and factual discussion of findings and accomplishments during the period and must include appropriate references. 2. Each report will include a report summary. This summary, prominently identified, should normally not exceed a few pages. The purpose of the projects must be specified, together with a description of important equipment purchased or developed, if any, and the conclusions reached by-the contractor. The most important single feature of this summary is that it must be meaningful to readers who are not specialists in the subject matter of the contract. The requirement for careful preparation cannot be overemphasized as this summary will often provide the basis for decision on the continuity of the project. The contractor must recognize that his achievements are quite often surveyed by Department of Defense staff who function at a level that precludes a thorough review of detailed reports. When appropriate, references should be made to more detailed zcctions of the report in order to guide those who may be prepared to spend the additional time required to develop a more complete and professional understanding of the accomplishments. The report summary should include the following information for each major portion of the work. 1. Problems. 2. General methodology (e.g., literature view, laboratory experiment, survey, field study, etc.). 3. Results 4. Implications for further research (if any). 5. Special comments (if any).

Funding cited may be used only for the project delineated in the .attached statement of work. 2. The total MIPR estimate shall not be exceeded by the purchasing office. 3. Changes in purpose, scope or desired results from those delineated in the attached Statement of Work must be approved by the COTR with the approval of the Grill Flame Committee. SG1J Approved For Release 2003/09/09 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001200020004-4 Approved For Release 2003/09/09 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001200020004-4 NOVEL INTELLIGENCE COLLECTION TECHNIQUE (U) JUSTIFICATION FOR SOLE SOURCE PROCUREMENT WITH SRI INTERNATIONAL 1. (C) Sole source procurement must be initiated for the award of the contract to SRI International of Menlo Park, CA, for FY 1981. 2. (S) In order to fulfill the objective of this Statement of Work, the contractor is required to have a high degree of technical competence in the analysis and evaluation of advanced threat techniques. There is no doubt that SRI has the background and expertise desire for the specific advanced threat of interest. SRI is a recognized leader in this particular field of analysis and evaluation, and has performed similar work for other US Government agencies over the past few years. Their previous work, under Contract DNA 001-78-C-0274. will form a highly meaningful data base which will greatly enhance the value and effectiveness of this contractual effort. 3. (C) The effort involved for a new contractor to research the same level of capability and expertise that SRI currently possesses for this area of analysis and evaluation would be too time consuming and uneconomical to acquire and develop. To acquaint a new contractor in this area of expertise would require several years simply to achieve the present level of expertise and competence possessed by SRI. 4. (C) The performance of SRI on similar government contracts since 1974 is judged as satisfactory, justifying them as a sole source. The SRI researchers implemented numerous innovations to maximize output of these prior year contracts, and were able to utilize additional resources at SRI without added cost to the Government. 5. (C) The capabilities and characteristics delineated above, especially the SRI-funded development of sources and data base, ensure that SRI International alone has the qualifications to satisfy the requirements set forth in the Statement of Work, expecially within the compelling time frame of this contract.
