(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 25 April 1983. Details of the effort are specified in the following section. ftf 46--T% 16 1 Approved For Release ;gpNq g'kCLi% 9 7888001500110020-3 Approved For Release 200 6-00788R001500110020-3 SECRET/CENTER LANE-3/NOFORN) II STATEMENT OF WORK (U) 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 corresponding increase in the reliability of a remote viewer. 2.1 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Train an army person in CRV Stages V and VI as outlined in SRI memorandum on the subject dated 27 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 two or three training blocks of two weeks duration each, with two to four-week breaks between sessions. The training dates will be mutually agreed to by SRI and INSCOM. 2.1.3 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) After successful completion of CRV Stage V, the trainee will be scheduled to begin CRV Stage VI. (U) Military security requirements in the performance of this contract shall be maintained in accordance with the "CENTER LANE SECURITY PROCEDURES GUIDE," dated 1 March 1983 (S/CL-1/NOFORN/ORCON). The highest classifica- tion involved in the performance of this contract is SECRET/CL-4/NO FOREIGN DISSEMINATION/ORIGINATOR CONTROLLED. 4. (U) DELIVERABLES (U) The contractor will provide the following. 4.1 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) State-of-the-art CRV training. 2 Approved For Release 2 9AJM ~Ecl P?/g@pqPT88R001500110020-3 Approved For Release 20 " I'M P96-00788RO01500110020-3 SECRET/CENTER LANE-3/NOFORN 4.2 (U) A progress report (2 copies)--provide a 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 in three copies will be furnished within 30 days after completion of each CRV stage. 4.3.2 (U) 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) Report should also include an evaluation of the trainee's future remote viewing capabilities, and a recommendation concerning further training. (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 August 1983 will be adhered to.
