During the period of 15 December 1992 through 15 January 1993 inclusively, DTI-S conducted a series of ten projects entitled the "Document Series" and short-titled DX-1 thru DX-10. 2. The purpose of the DX Series was to determine the extent of a a remote viewer's ability to access and report substantial information against a series of short articles chosen at random, sealed in an opaque envelope and stored in the top drawer of a security container at DTI-S. The articles were drawn from a variety of printed material that described people, places or events focused on a single thematic issue. 3. Five of the projects were conducted with a disinterested person action as a beacon. A beacon is a person who is aware of the target. The remaining five projects were conducted without a beacon having access to the target. The target was removed from the opaque envelope upon completion of the project by all three remote viewers. 4. Throughout the conduct of this series of projects, the three remote viewers were tasked to describe the substantial content of the material. They were also encouraged to literally and/or phonetically identify names, titles or the literal thematic content of the printed material. The remote viewing sessions were conducted in a solo mode with noother person present during the conduct of the session.

Results were individually and alternatively assessed by the Project Officer, a DTI-S senior analyst, and finally, by a completely disinterested volunteer from Results indicated that when a beacon was used, the three remote viewers enjoyed an overall reliability rate of 9.5~, 3.1~ and 14.1. When no beacon was used, the overall reliability rose slightly to that of 14~, 17.5 and 24.6 for the same three viewers. The overall reporting reliability rate with a beacon was assessed at 8.9~ whereas without the use of a beacon person, the reliability rate rose to 18.7. (See charts at Annex I and Annex II).
