HQ INSCOM never received written tasking on this subject. The CG INSCOM and the ACSI had agreed upon the concept of Remote Viewing and the need for Army involvement in this area (TAB B). Of the 251 personnel considered for GRILL FLAME, 117 were interviewed and six individuals were actually selected for training. Remote Viewing considered technology transfer rather than direct research. Six INSCOM personnel begin training at SRI-International in Remote Viewing.

(U) Purpose: The purpose of the progress report is to provide periodic status reports concerning INSCOM's involvement in project GRILL FLAME. These reports w:L1.1 be shown to "key" TNSCOM personnel and then only after the TNSCOM GRILL FLAMI Project Officer has determined that a "need-to-know" exists. 3. (S/ORCON) Introduction: Sometime during the month of October 1978, Colonel. A. W. Hamel., ADCSOPPS-IIUMINT, INSCOM, was tasked by the DCSOPS, INSCOM, to provide a Project: Officer for a new program that INSCOM was becoming fevolved in at the direction of the ACST. Major Murray B. Watt, PPPA, ADCSOP S-HUMINT, was selected to be the INSCOM Project Manager (P14) and on 27 October 1978 was so notified. In short, the new project involved the development: of a program using, parapsychology phenomena for intell. il ence applications. _ {OW'M M a'J i _. k 4 wf `* her ...e i r ~= t~~ tfeiat"' a?akih?, ~?t~~,:d +p, u.l:??,', b:ttp::lu:>,n:tetlti ttt5ai8 m e * s d t d =" ?a s tt"t. + i eaai (S_RIl ;. Remote viewing pertains to the ability of certain individuals to access and describe, by means of mental. processes, informa- tion sources blocked from ordinary perception, and generally accepted as secure against such access. 4. (S/ORCON) Tasking: As previously stated, I-IQ INSCOM never received any written tasking on this subject. However, the CG, INSCOM and the. ACS[ had agreed upon the concept of remote viewing and the need for Army involvement in this area.

(S/ORCON) Project Development:: The initial concern of the Project Manager (PM) was to develop a full uncle r.standing of parapsychology and the various aspects of the phenomena. Towards this end, the PM has been greatly assisted by Lieutenant Frederick. 11. Atwater. LT Atwater, although assigned to the Special Security Detachment, 902d MI Croup, was attached to the GRILL FLAME project because of previous research into this area during work on a separate project. a. To develop a sense of appreciation for an understanding of para- psychology, the PM undertook a vigorous Research Program (which is still ongoing) to include the following: (1) Extensive reading on the subject matter. (2) Visits to DOD officials with knowledge of the subject. matter. (3) Visits to SRI (see TABs B and C). (4) Visits to AMSAA (see TABS D and E). b. On 24 November .1978, the tentv-, milestone schedule for INSCOM GRILL FLAME activity was submitted to the AI)C,'SOPS--IIUMINT (COI., Hamel) for his approv31 (see TAB F). c. DOD Committee Action: On 28 November 1978, the first meeting of the Working Group Committee of the DOD Special Sensors Project mot at DIA. (See TAB C.) One of the first actions of the Working Group was to form- ally change the name of the group to the DOD GRILL FLAME Committee. The Working Group will meet at the call of the Cha:irp erson. Dr. Jack Vorona, DIA. MAJ Watt., not only is a member of the Working Group, but he also sits on the two Ad floc Committees formed to establish "Goals and Objec- tives" and to develop "experimental protocol and methods for validating e.xperi.ments." d. DA GRILL FLAME Committee: DA representatives met at HQ DARCOM on 28 November 1.978 to discuss Project. GRILL FLAME and what the Army position should be (see TAB H). e. Procedures for c.onduc:, "Survey" --- Throughout the orientation period, MAJ Watt and LT Atwater were busy preparing a method that would help them select the INSCOM personnel who would volunteer for participa- tion in the GRILL FLAME Project that I.NSCOM was going to carry out. It was decided to conduct an interview with selected INSCOM personnel throughout the greater Washington area. The interviews would serve as the "guise" under which project personnel could obtain viewpoint Approved For Release 2005/03/09: CIA-RDP96-00788R001700030008-4 2 6o fed ar.Release :20056f03109 : CIA=RDP 6='60T88F2001700030008=;'' IAF4--OPS-HU 21 February 1979 SUBJECT: INSCOM PROJECT GRILL FLA- : PROGRESS REPORT 111 (U) opinions, and general feelings toward the subject of parapsychology and the uses to which such psychic ability should be applied.

The selec- tion criteria/process was carried out in the following manner: (1) Decision made to interview oily WO/OFF/Civilians (GS9 and above).* (2) Initial elimination based on: (a) Commander' s evaluation. (b) Retainability - at least 20 months. (c) Health. (d) Not readily available (programmed TDY, schools, etc.). (3) Conduct personal interviews/survey. (4) Reassessment process. (5) Request specific personnel to volunteer for INSCOM program. 3 Approved For Release 2005/03/09 : CIA-RDP96-00788R001700030008-4 6ved'1=tY Release 2005,03109 :' CIA-R1P96=O'0788ROO17aOD 0048 IAFM-OPS-11U 21 February 1979 SUBJECT: INSCOM PROJECT GRILL FLAME : PROGRESS REPORT 1#1 (U) (6) SRI personnel interview selected personnel. (7) Final decision/selection of personnel. *Exceptions to this rule were made in three cases when project personnel received strong recommendations concerning three individuals who did not meet original criteria. f. Security Aspects: Throughout the developmental phases of this project, security has been of primary concern--not only security of GRILL FLAME itself but security/safety of personnel involved with the project. Access to GRILL FLAME information is limited to a "Strict Need-to- Know Basis" and the PM maintains a Security Access Roster of all INSCOM personnel with knowledge of the activities of the program. Further, the PM serves as POC for all other agencies desiring GRILL FLAME information including security status as regards GRILL FLAME. 6. (S/ORCON) Future Plans: The coming weeks will basically be devoted to the following activities: a. Initial in-house training of all project, personnel. I b. Training at SRI. C. Establishing, procedures and determining appropriate applications.

(S/NF) Since 1980, jointly sponsored research by DIA and Army INSCOM has shown GRILL FLAME to have potential for military applications. In the classified annex to the FY 19B3 Authorization Conference Report, however, the Intelligence Committee conferees agreed that if research were to continue, it should be outside the National Foreign Intelligence Program. Although DIA should have sufficient funding in FY 1983 to complete its GRILL FLAME evaluation, -the conferees did not provide resources for Army intelligence participation in the project.

(U) Purpose; To obtain your approval for the Army to engage in CENTER LANE activities. 2. (U) Discussion. a. (S/CL-l /NOFORN) CENTER LANE is a US Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSc:OM) Special Access Program (SAP) which utilizes an aspect of parapsycl~ol.og,y known as remoe viewing as the collection method for obtaining information of' intelligence interest. The CENTER LANE SAP has been approved by the Secretary of the Army; however, the signcecl action is being held by the Armyo, GE`rneral Counsel for review of human use issues addressed in this paper. b. (S/CL-1 /NQFORN) Army participation in GRILL FLAME, the predecessor to CENTER LANE, wac most: recently approved b-, Secretary of the Army on l We?b 82 (TAB A). Two areas were addressed by the Army GenerRal Cc:ournsel. in his memorandum which deserve comment concerning CENTER LANE activities, namely human experimentation and funding issues. (1) ('.S/CL-1/NOFORN) CENTER LANE's use of human sub., jests remains as stated in the enclosed 14 Jan 82 Decision Memorandum on GRILL FLAME. As in the case of GRILI, FLAME, CENTER LANE has demonstrated that important foreign intel.l igence and counterint_cl l igence information may be obtained through the use of remote viewing, and the Army's continued involvement is warranted. The Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, and OACSI, HQDA have all. requested and received support from CENTER LANE.
