(S/NOFORN) Remote viewers have been able to obtain relevant target informa- tion having been provided geographic coordinates, UTM coordinates, photographs of target areas or buildings, photographs of individuals, specially designed grid systems and in some cases sealed envelopes containing target designating information. 2. (S/NOFORN) Remote viewers have been able to provide relevant target information in past, present, and future time windows. 3. (S/NOFORN) Some remote viewers show an ability to focus on people at the target. 4. (S/NOFORN) The possibility of remote viewing detection of nuclear targets is being studied. 5. (S/NOFORN) Remote viewing appears to be a difficult mental task requiring a high degree of concentration on the part of the viewer. A viewer's ability to relax physically and concentrate mentally on the task at hand is in direct proportion to the quality of his remote viewing. 6. (S/NOFORN) There have been several projects attempted in which remote viewing as we now understand it has been of no intelligence value. We are still learning what types of problems are best suited for remote viewing. 7. (S/NOFORN) Current tasks now exceed available resources. We need more remote viewers. 8. (S/NOFORN) Immediate, direct feedback (in the psychological sense) does not appear to be as critical as initially anticipated. It seems to be more important to insure the viewer is motivated toward the task at hand. He must understand that the information he provides is in and of itself important, and that his information is unique and that he is a vital part of the intelligence system. 9. (S/NOFORN) The users of information produced by the remote viewing process need to have an understanding of the limitations and advantages of this new collection methodology. 10. (S/NOFORN) Learning to do remote viewing at an acceptable operational level would appear to take about six months. The learning process must be gradual so that the trainee may integrate this novel ability into his cognitive structure. Approved For Rel eF0014O4/02r4 O;IA?RDP O-UO 83R002000250040-0 GRILL FLAME
