Approved For Release 20 6-00788 R001200150001-3 IAGPA-F-SD 30 January 1984 MEMORANDUM THRU ADCSOPS-HUMINT, USAINSCOM DCSOPS, USAINSCOM C of S, USAINSCOM DCG-S, USAINSCOM FOR CG, USAINSCOM SUBJECT: GRILL FLAME Project Report (U) 1. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) At inclosure 1 is a copy of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Project Report, dated 19 October 1983. In keeping with Congressional directives, USAINSCOM terminated involvement with GRILL FLAME at the end of FY 82 while DIA completed the effort. It is recommended that this report be carefully read by all addressees as it documents a $1.5 million, 3-year, US DoD/Intelligence Community effort in psychoenergetics. Attention is especially invited to page 10, intelligence potential and INSCOM involvement (tab A, incl 1), and page 19, report recommendations (tab B, incl 1). 2. (S/NOFORN) At inclosure 2 is a copy of the final draft of a report from an independent Scientific Evaluation Team. DIA assembled this team of scientists at the request of Congressman Boland. It is our understanding that these documents received a favorable indorsement from Secretary of Defense Weinberger. A copy of the final report will be obtained by this office, and, if substantially different from the attached final draft, will t " . i & I ;! b H1 L WA N!ING N?TIC ; LV i (i^bl + i + a Sgt-1 I.

The following comments are provided by this office and are in reference to annotated portions of the team's evaluation and recommendations: a. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) The "investigators" referred to in the report are contractors who, over the years, have only responded to funded statements of work (tab C, incl 2). They were not tasked (funded) to investigate a "mechanistic basis" for coordinate remote viewing. In contradiction to the statement concerning "appraisal of other potentially successful methods," (tab C, incl 2), they were, in fact, funded to determine the relative effectiveness of various targeting procedures under the GRILL FLAME Program in 1982. b. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) The GRILL FLAME and CENTER LANE Projects both are "applications" oriented due to budgetary restrictions (prohibition against P6 funding in past years), mission orientation (USAINSCOM is not a R&D unit), and fiscal constraint (a "pure science" effort requires a multi-million dollar/multi-year commitment)(tab D, incl 2). We agree that there should be a "scientific research program" separate from our applications approach and we understand that a 5-year, ten plus million dollar program in basic research is under consideration at the present time. 2 Incl BRIAN BUZBY as LTC, MI Project Manager Approved For Release 2001/04/02 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001200150001-3
