Approved For Release 200,6ECR& 6-00788RO01500090053-0 IAGPA-F-SD 22 October 1984 MEMORANDUM FOR RECORD SUBJECT: Training Plan 1 October 1984 - 31 December 1984 (U) 1. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) During the period 1 October 1984 to 31 December 1984, the INSCOM CENTER LANE Project (ICLP) will be transferred to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). IAW directives, ICLP ceased psychoenergetic intelligence collection activities on 30 September 1984. During the period of transition to DIA, ICLP is, however, authorized to continue psychoenergetic training. The following training will be conducted during the transition period: a. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Coordinate Remote Viewing (CRy) CRV is a contracted form of training in psychoenergetic perception provided by a SRI-International (SRI-I) subcontractor, Ingo Swann, who coined the term CRV. Training is conducted at SRI-International facilities in Menlo Park, CA and New York, NY. Four ICLP personnel are being trained in what have come to be known as CRV Stages I, II, and III of a multi-stage system of psychoenergetic perception. One additional ICLP individual, who has completed Stages I, II, III, IV, and VI, is being trained in Stage V. This individual, who is considered operational, is expected to complete Stage V training before the end of November 1984. Personnel training in Stages I, II, III are ICLP initiates and as such have not achieved a sufficient level of expertise to be operationally employed. Having completed Stages I and II, these four personnel will begin Stage III training on 22 October 1984. They are expected (required by contract) to complete Stage III by the end of December 1984. It is anticipated and recommended WARNING NOTICE: CENTER LANE SPECIAL ACCESS PROGRAM RESTRICT DISSEMINATION TO THOSE WITH VERIFIED ACCESS TO CATEGORY THREE (3) SENSITIVE INTELLIGENCE SOURCES AND METHODS INVOLVED NOT RELEASABLE TO FOREIGN NATIONALS CLASSIFIED BY: CDR, INSCOM PRoUIom W DECLASSIFY ON: OADR OR.

They have adapted well to the Swann training model and continuation would be in the best interests of the individuals involved and the operational requirements of DIA. b. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) In-house Remote Viewing. In-house remote viewing training is conducted by knowledgeable personnel within ICLP. Training is based on the application of years of experience culled together from academic insight, scientific experiments, and operational applications. It is the principle means through which technology has been transferred from contractors to the ICLP. Two ICLP personnel are presently involved in a CRV phase of in-house remote viewing training in which basic principles drawn from the Ingo Swann CRV methodology in conjunction with time tested practices of the ICLP are being applied. The purpose of this in-house training is to introduce newly assigned personnel to psychoenergetics, identify psychoenergetic abilities, and develop recommendations for further training/utilization. c. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Abstract Referents Discrimination of ---------------------------- Binary-Alternatives (ARDBA_ Two separate sponsors have asked if ICLP sources could compromise existing cryptographic systems. To address this question, a complex program of training/testing has been implemented. Phase one of this program will determine if ICLP sources have the ability to discriminate between binary alternatives to a statistically significant level. If a source with this ability can be identified, he will enter phase two of the program which will test an ICLP source's ability to discriminate between binary alternatives given different levels of feedback. This program phase will serve to enhance an identified ability as well as develop an internalized feeling of confidence within the source. During the third phase of the program the ICLP source's ability to discriminate between binary alternatives in response to given abstract referents will be identified and developed. In order to satisfy the identified operational requirement (compromise existing cryptographic systems), an ICLP source must be able to accurately discriminate between binary alternatives given a complex abstract referent cuing system. Once these training stages have been completed an in-house pilot project can be conducted. In this project an attempt might be made to decode a randomly developed sequence of numbers contained in a sealed envelope. If the pilot project is successful, sponsors can be asked to provide their own cryptographic information for attempted decoding and compromise by ICLP sources. Two ICLP sources are presently involved in this ARDBA training. Approved For Release 200 r? ~6,* RLR~D~96-00788R001500090053-0 Approved For Release 205z I U-96-00788 ROO 1500090053-0 2. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) The week of 1 to 5 October 1985, four coordinate remote viewing (CRV) trainees completed Stage II and one trainee worked on Stage V at the SRI-I New York office. During the same period, two trainees were involved in in-house CRV and binary discrimination training. SRI-I CRV training details are on file with the SRI-I subcontractor in New York and under separate cover as trip reports in the CENTER LANE (CL) office at Fort Meade. Results of in-house training show promise and are on file under separate cover in the CL office at Fort Meade. 3. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) From 9 to 19 October 1985, in-house validation of SRI-I CRV training yielded positive results. Sessions are on file at the CL office. All SRI-I CRV trainees exceeded expected goals. During the same period, two trainees were involved in in-house CRV and binary discrimination training. Results of in-house training are on file under separate cover in the CL office at Fort Meade. 4. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Comment on in-house training: Although training in CRV is very slow, progress is definitely evident. Both of the trainees have demonstrated an ability to remote view and have responded to training designed to enhance that ability. The trainees are motivated, eager, and ready to continue CRV training. Binary discrimination training is also slow but both trainees have exhibited results exceeding chance probability. Their goal will be to stabilize and gain control of this ability. Association of the below named individual with military intelligence is classified CONFIDENTIAL.
