(S/NOFORN/WNINTEL) I, voluntarily accept assignment to the DIA SUN STREAK PROJECT (DSSP) and fully understand that: a. (S/NOFORN/WNINTEL) The DIA and DoD General Counsels have determined that the DSSP constitutes experimentation on human subjects. As required by Procedure 13 of DoD Directive 5240.1-R, approval for project activities has been granted by the Deputy Secretary of Defense. b. (S/NOFORN/WNINTEL) The aim of the DSSP is to develop highly skilled personnel who are capable of conducting professional level intelligence/counterintelligence operations through the use of psychoenergetics methodology. Development of DSSP will be accomplished with special training based on mission requirements. c. (C/NOFORN) Assignments in DSSP are governed by the sensitivity and degree of expertise required for the position. I will be assigned in accordance with my capabilities and experience, regardless of my rank or previous position. Due to the nature of training involved, the duration of my participation is indefinite. Records of my involvement will be available to project personnel, but otherwise protected under project security measures. d. (C/NOFORN) The primary consideration in any career development or assignment action will be DSSP mission and operational requirements. i understand that exemption, interruption, or delay in normal career development patterns--such as branch schooling and assignment opportunities--may prejudice future promotion and assignment potential. I have been assured, however, that every effort will be made to preclude the adverse effects listed above on my career. 2. (U) PSYCHOENERGETICS (PE) include various processes by which individuals psychically interact with objects, locations, and organisms. a. (U) I understand that while there is no demonstrated risk of permanent or temporary injury (including physical, psychological and/or damage to participants' reputation) to project personnel beyond risks to which they would ordinarily be exposed in their daily lives, the potential for injury during some training cannot be conclusively ruled out.

(S/NOFORN/WNINTEL) As a participant in DSSP, and IAW DoD Directive 5240.1-R, I consent to tape recording, monitoring and transcribing of all training and operational interviews in which I am involved as an integral part of the DSSP mission. I understand that these recordings are subject to being monitored and/or transcribed by third parties not otherwise involved in operations or training. I waive any claim or right of ownership to all tape recordings and transcripts made in conjunction with DSSP, with the understanding that these tape recordings and transcripts are property of the United States Government. 4.

I further understand that my participation in DSSP is voluntary and that at my request I may at any time be reassigned without fear of adverse personnel action.
