(S/CL-1/NOFORN) To accomplish the proposed program, SRI will provide the facilities, materials, SRI staffing, and consultants to perform the tasking outlined in the INSCOM Statement of Work dated 2 August 1983. Details'of the effort are specified in the following section. Approved For Release 2003/0971 c-lJ96-OO792ROOOl 00140032-7 SECRET/CENTER LANE-3/NOFORN Approved For Release 2003/09 l if- l 96-00792R000100140032-7 SECRET/CENTER LANE-3/NOFORN II STATEMENT OF WORK (U) 1. (U) GENERAL 1.1 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) The objective of this effort is to investigate a particular aspect of psychoenergetics relating to operational management of personnel; that is, determine if a personality testing technique can be created, which when applied to a general population will delineate specific individuals who exhibit a higher degree of talent for remote viewing. 1.2 (U) MAJOR GOALS a. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Phase I: Apply personality testing with proven remote viewer personnel from SRI and Project CENTER LANE, and determine testing profile(s) that can be used to identify personnel with an aptitude for remote viewing. b. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Phase II: Test these same individuals with "self-report" type tests, and compare the results of these tests with the previously identified profile(s) to determine testing accuracy. Apply the identified profile(s) against a general test population and segregate persons who show a talent for remote viewing from those who do not. c. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Phase III: Test the personnel who show a talent for remote viewing against randomly selected targets; test the personnel who did not show a talent against the same targets. d. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Provide an overall evaluation of the above three phases with conclusive recommendations. If the first two phases produce negative results, an overall evaluation of those two phases will be made, including a recommendation for further action. 2. (U) SPECIFIC TASKS 2.1 (U) Phase I a. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Personality profile data from proven remote viewers will be collected. Data will be collected from proven personnel-- those identified by SRI as well as Project CENTER LANE participants. b . Wechsler Test. (U) The data will be collected by using an extended c. (U) It is planned that testing will be carried out under laboratory conditions by two experienced testers: Dr. David Saunders, jE22 Approved For Release 2003/09/~ CO: YDP96-00792R000100140032-7 SECRET/CENTER LANE-3/NOFORN Approved For Release 2003/S R 4 P96-00792R000100140032-7 SECRET/CENTER LANE-3/NOFORN (U) MARS Measurements Association (SRI Consultant), Lawrenceville, New Jersey; and Dr. Michael Hecker (an SRI Staff Member). d. (U) The data obtained will be analyzed in accordance with the Personality Assessment System (PAS) concept. e. (U) The above analysis will provide the basis upon which specific and appropriate personality profile(s) of interest will be designated; those profiles will be extrapolated for use during Phase III. f. (U) An interim report of findings from Phase I will be 2.2 (U) Phase II (Will be run in parallel with Phase I.) a. (S/CL-2/NOFORN) Self-report data will be collected from the selected individuals within SRI and the CENTER LANE Project. These will be the same individuals selected for testing under Phase I. b. (U) The self-report data will be determined from tests such as the Myers-Briggs and the 16-PF questionnaires. Testing will be under laboratory conditions, and will be used to design a prescreening questionnaire. c. (U) Analysis of the self-report data will be performed using the Behavior Prediction System (BPS) concept to generate a scoring key capable of extracting those individuals with profile(s) indicated within Phase I, as being profile(s) of interest. d. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) The self-report test criteria will be applied against a general population. The general population will contain the previously selected SRI and CENTER LANE remote viewer personnel. e. (U) To test whether the prescreening (self-report) test is effective in selecting individuals with the Phase I profiles, a second group of individuals will be given both the prescreening and extended Wechsler tests under like laboratory conditions, and the correlations between these results and the previous results will be evaluated. f. (U) An interim report of findings from Phase II will be 2.3 Phase III (Assuming success in Phases I and II, the following will be accomplished.) a. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) The appropriate profile(s) developed through testing during Phases I and II will be used to delineate individuals into two groups: those with remote viewing potential as well as those who do not show potential. t I sc rvw& OOCUALOLn 6(2 PAP i.

(S/CL-3/NOFORN) Personnel who show potential in remote viewing will then be tested (under laboratory conditions) against a randomly selected group of targets. c. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Personnel not selected as having potential will also be run (under laboratory conditions) against the same selected group of targets. d. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) A comparison of both groups of personnel will then be made to determine the validity of selection criteria developed and presented from Phases I and II. e. (S/CL-3/NOFORN) Should it be proven by failure in Phases I and II that a personality profile cannot be developed that will assist in selecting appropriate remote viewer personnel, then Phase III will be canceled with the concurrence of the sponsor, and all monies left transferred to ongoing remote viewer training. (U) Military security requirements in the performance of this contract shall be maintained in accordance with the "CENTER LANE SECURITY PROCEDURES GUIDE," dated 1 March 1983 (S/CL-1/NOFORN/ORCON). The highest classifica- tion involved in the performance of this contract is SECRET/CL-4/NO FOREIGN DISSEMINATION/ORIGINATOR CONTROLLED. 4. (U) DELIVERABLES (U) SRI International will provide the following: 4.1 (S/CL-1/NOFORN) State-of-the-art information on selection of personnel with a talent for remote viewing. 4.2 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) A progress report (2 copies)--a written evaluation of findings (within 10 days of completion) of Phase I, develop- ment of and use of psychological profile(s) testing. 4.3 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) A progress report (2 copies--a written evaluation of findings (within 10 days of completion) of Phase II, development of and use of self-report testing; to include comparison for accuracy against Phase I testing, and use of the newly designed prescreening questionnaire. 4.4 (S/CL-3/NOFORN) A final report (3 copies) (within 30 days following completion) of the overall evaluation of the developed selection testing methodology. This report will include but is not limited to the following: a.
