Referral Review by NIMA/DoD Approved For Release 2003/04/18 : CIA-RDP96-00789 R001400590001-2 CONFIDENTIAL/NOFORN - SKEET CHANNELS ONLY PROJECT SUN STEAK (U) BEACON TRAINING SESSION WARNING NOTICE: INTELLIGENCE SOURCES AND METHODS INVOLVED DATE : go 5E P 86 TARGET: / 4 'S q,-M- 7ZXA,0SQ: (A,fulss, T" Ttk"T 6O p,r is) SG1J SG1J OUTBOUND TEAM : 1) 2) 1 n-(eru cc~{" MISSION EVALUATION: -11~ ---------------------- - 1. (C/NF/SK) PROTOCOLS: a. The Remote Viewer was introduced to the outbound Team (OBT) at 0CW0 hours, . Following this "warm-up meeting both the OBT and the Inbbund Team IBT) were restricted to the area of the unit operational facility with orders not to discuss the particulars of the upcoming mission. During this "restricted." period neither the OBT nor the IBT were permitted to make or receive outside telephone calls or to meet with other members of the unit. The OBT was reindoctrinated on the need to maintain the integrity of this mission by not varying the purpose of the trip to the site to tend to personal needs, e.g., errands, refreshments, etc. b. At Q ?1~ p hours, the actual target, (sealed within an envelope) was provided to the OBT at which time. they were permitted to depart the area enroute to the target. Their verbal tasking was as follows: (1) Do not unseal the envelope until you have moved out of the immediate viewing area of.the unit. (2) Go directly to the target area and remain in the general area (by driving around the block if necessary) until exactly jO V O hours. (3) At F hours, position yourself at the targe4 area and perform any actions normally associated with the functions of the target, e.g., bowl at a bowling alley, purchase refreshments at a snack bar, etc. Approved For Release 2003/04/18 : CIA-RDP96-00789 R001400590001-2 Approved For Release 2003/04/18 : CIA-RDP96-00789 R001400590001-2 (4) Remain on site for a minimum of fifteen minutes or longer but only if a longer period of time is required to finish a function of the building such as finishing a cup of coffee or similar purchase, etc. (5) Following this fifteen minute mandatory visit to the site, return immediately to the unit area. (6) After arriving in the unit area, the OBT is not to discuss the target or events that occurred at the site with anyone in the unit. When the IBT has finished the post-session phase of the mission (sketches, summaries, etc.) the OBT and the IBT will proceed back to the target area, still without comments pertaining to the actual mission. (7) At the target site, the OBT will retrace their movements at the target whij,e being followed by the IBT. When the target (or specific items at the target) are recognized by the Remote Viewer, he/she will so state with a brief explanation or reference to the data collection phase, if necessary. (8) Following this second visit, both the IBT and the OBT will return to the unit area at which time the OBT will be released and a general feedback session will be provided to the Remote Viewer. c. The Interviewer will be responsible- for collating the data obtained from the entire session, (session information, post-session interview and on site visit), and from the data an overall evaluation will be given pertaining to the success of this mission based upon the relevence of the material provided and later substantiated. The guidelines for this evaluation will be on a 0-7 point scale of target/data correspondence. This scale is as follow: 7 = Excellent correspondence, including good analytical detail (e.g., naming the site by name). 6 = Good correspondence with good analytical information (e.g., naming the function), and with essentially no incorrect information. 5 = Good correspondence with unambiguous unique matchable elements and little incorrect information. 4 = Good correspondence with several machable elements, but some incorrect information. 3 = Mixture of correct and incorrect elements, but enough of the former to indicate viewer has made contact with the site. 2 = Some correct elements, but not sufficient to suggest results beyond chance expectation. I = Little correspondence. 0 = No correspondence. In addition to the numeric scale of evaluation, the Interviewer may opt to provided other comments on the target/session correspondence as necessary in narrative form. All of this material is then provided to the Remote Viewer for future references and/or discussions with the Interviewer since the material in these reports will be used as the basis for additional skills training, if required. Approved For Release 2003/04/18 : CIA-RDP96-00789 R001400590001-2 Approved For Release 2003/04/18 : CIA-RDP96-00789 R001400590001-2 2. ( ) SESSION RESULTS: a. ( ) Source quickly attained an altered state of consciousness. There were no known external environmental or personal inclemencies which may have impacted on the data obtained curing this session. b. ( ) Source accurately described an "open area yet sheltered" during the session. This area, as confirmed by the follow-up walk through is the main lobby of the Ft Meade, PX near the snack bar portion. The actual target is an enclosed videw game room (sheltered) next to the snack bar area. Throughout the session Source had frequent impressions of "McDonalds" (hamburger stand) which can be.attributed to the smells and general activity associated with the adjacent snack bar. c. ( ) Within the game room Source accurately described the machine(s).as "dark, sloping, with a klinka klinka sound. The dark thing is big and appears hunched over with a funny shape." This closely coincides with the description of anormal video game machine. Later Source referenced a large catapillar on its back with its legs sticking up in the air. At the site Source stated that he recognized the "dark sloping things" as the curving profile of the video machines. The "catepillar legs" were recognized to be the rows of control handles on the video machines used to play the game. d. ( ) Source identified the color of reddish brown in conjunction with the triangular and squared,items. This description closely resembled the rows of reddish brown booths for the use of snack bar patrons. The reddish brown naugehyde is stitched into triangular patterns. The "square" reference may have been the tables. e. ( ) Source referenced a "young girl dressed in purple, " at the site. The OBT could not recall observing or noticing anyone matching this reference. Ironically, however, diring the follow-up site visit a women in bright purple and lavender tights and sweaters was seen standing at the snack bar. This may have been an example of a "created future" or simply an anomaly of the Remote Viewing procedure. In other words, the Source, while on target, may have slipped momentarily into a future universe in which the "girl in purple" was present-- the moment when we were conducting the follow-up visit. A simpler, less exotic answer may lie in the fact that the Source does not, hopefully, see the target through the eges of the OBT but rather through his own perspective. Therefore because the OBT did not see the lady in purple does not preclude the Source from spotting her on his own. f. ( ) This was a highly successful mission in which both the interviewer as well as the S9urce were able to build on mutually shared commuhication skills.
