(S/CL-1/NOFORN) To accomplish the proposed program, SRI will provide the facilities, materials, SRI staffing, and consultants to perform the tasking outlined in the INSCOM Statement of Work dated 2 May 1983. Details of the effort are specified in the following section. 1 Approved For Release / 2g Q,*%RQ0788R001500110019-5 Approved For Release 2001/ 01500110019-5 SECRET/CENTER LANE-3/NOFORN 1. (U) GENERAL 1.1 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) The objective of this effort is to investigate a particular aspect of the psychoenergetic phenomena known as remote viewing that has a potential military intelligence application. Coordinate Remote Viewing (CRV) is a staged technique that utilizes coordinates to facilitate acquisition of a remote viewing target. 1.2 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) The major goal is to determine whether CRV technology can be successfully transferred to INSCOM personnel with a correspo digg i crease in the reliability WILL of a remote viewer. 1.

(U) SPECIFIC TASKS 2.1 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Train three army personnel concurrently in CRV Stages I through III, as outlined in SRI memoranda on this subject, dated 16 December 1982 and 25 May 1983. 2.1.1 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Initiate training at the highest skill level (CRV stage) of the trainee. 2.1.2 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Training for each CRV stage will normally be divided into working sessions in accordance with the following schedule: - Stage I, Phase 1 2 to 3 weeks - Stage I, Phase 2 2 to 4 weeks - Stage II 2 to 6 weeks - Stage III 12 to 16 weeks Total 24 weeks The session dates will be mutually agreed to by SRI and INSCOM. 2.1.3 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) After successful completion of each CRV stage, the trainee will be scheduled to begin the next CRV stage. 2.2 (U) Determine the potential of the trainee for further training. (U) Broken up into 2-week sessions each, with 2 to 4 week breaks between sessions. e rM 0% V% I" Approved For Release 2QAiQ ;T~pl ,l8p p* 88R001500110019-5 Approved For Release 2001/0 96-00788 R001500110019-5 SECRET/CENTER LANE-3/NOFORN (U) Military security requirements in the performance of this con- tract shall be maintained in accordance with the "CENTER LANE SECURITY PROCEDURES GUIDE," dated 1 March 1983 (S/CL-1/NOFORN/ORCON). The highest classification involved in the performance of this contract is SECRET/ CL-4/NO FOREIGN DISSEMINATION/ORIGINATOR CONTROLLED. 4. (U) DELIVERABLES (U) SRI International will provide the following: 4.1 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) St"g -of-the-art CRV training. 4.2 (U) A progress report (2 copies)--written evaluation of the trainee's progress (within 10 days after the completion of each training block). 4.3 (U) A final report. 4.3.1 (U) A final report (three copies) will be furnished within 30 days after completion of each training stage. -'"4.3.2 (U) The report will include a summary of the training presented, an evaluation of the trainee's ability to understand the training, and a summary of the trainee's accomplishments during the training period. 4.3.3 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) The report should also include an evaluation of the trainee's future remote viewing capabilities, and a recommendation concerning further training. I/, y 5. (U) POST TRAINING ACCESS (S/CL-3/NOFORN) After the completion of each CRV training stage, personnel involved in the training program will have reasonable access to INSCOM personnel trained to assist in further evaluations of CRV. 6. (U) SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS (U) Requirements concerning the use of human subjects as outlined in the INSCOM Statement of Work dated 2 May 1983 will be adhered to.
