Approved For Release 2000/08/Q8; QI,/ A P96-00788R001500010001-5 INFORMATION PAPER SUBJECT: CENTER LANE Briefing for Senator Nunn (U) FACTS. WARNING NOTICE 1. (S/CL-l/NOFORN) CENTER LANE is a US Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) Special Access Program which utilizes an aspect of psychoenergetics known as Remote Viewing as the collection method for obtaining information of intelligence interest. CENTER LANE was approved by the Secretary of the Army on 1 Sep 83 and the Secretary was briefed on the Program 5 Oct 83. 2. (S/CL-l/NOFORN) CENTER LANE is a follow-on project to Army GRILL FLAME, which was closed at the end of FY 82 as a result of Congressional guidance to curtail all operational activities in the National Foreign Intelligence Program (NFIP). CENTER LANE personnel spaces and funding come from the Army Security and Investigative Activities (S&IA) program and no NFIP resources are involved. 3. (S/CL-l/NOFORN) Program 6 (Research, Development, Test and Evaluation) resources were authorized for Army CENTER LANE use by the Under Secretary of Defense, Research and Engineering (USDRE) on 19 Jan 83 and by the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Research, Development and Acquisition) on 16 Mar 83. Contracts for $497K have been negotiated and P.6 funds for this amount will be dispersed about 1 Nov 83. The USDRE has indicated a willingness to commit more P.6 resources to CENTER LANE and this subject will be a matter of discussion in the near future. 4. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) CENTER LANE has demonstrated that important foreign intelligence and counterintelligence information may be obtained through the use of Remote Viewing. INSCOM's success in this effort has resulted in an authorization to expand opera- tional capabilities, to examine other areas of psychoenergetics such as psychokinesis and remote communications, and to develop psychoenergetic countermeasures. These new directions hold great promise and, if successful, would have an impact far beyond the intelligence applications.

SLETO Cf )7 H,-,?':.D/HAND CARPS( Approved For Release 2000/08/08 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001500010001-5 Parapsychology - A field of study concerned with the investiga- tion of evidence for telepathy, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis. Psychoenergetics - A term similar to parapsychology, in that it is used as a collective term to identify several areas such as remote viewing, remote communications, and remote perturbation. It includes the process by which an individual may psychically interact with subjects, locations, organizations or events. Remote Viewing - The perception by an individual of things, places or events distant from him. Psychokinesis - The ability of a person to cause a change in state in some physical object. Remote Communications is normally considered to be mental tele- pathy, but recent studies in plant communication indicate that other forms of remote communications (perhaps chemical) may be feasible. Remote Perturbation can include mental as well as physical (Psychokinesis) agitation. Psychoenergetics Countermeasures requires a basic understanding of the underlying mechanisms involved in psychoenergetic processes so as to deny the use of these measures against us. Psychoenergetic meaconing, intrusion, jamming and deception would be the logical focus of sucho'leffort. EEL' CLOSE HOLD/HAND CARRY. CENITI,111-4 elease 2000/08/08 : CIA-RDP96-00788 R001500010001-5
