In light of the Pentagon releasing three videos described as ”unexplained aerial phenomena”, which clearly shows crafts that are not in human inventory, Japan has decided to prepare for such an encounter.
The Japanese Government’s Defense Ministry claims that their pilots have never encountered an unidentified flying object according to The Japan Times. However, authorities want to be prepared for such an encounter in the future.
While the new protocols Japan are putting in place will be geared more towards identifying military drones, they will also be able to observe potential extra-terrestrial crafts.
At the moment, whenever an unidentified aircraft enters Japanese airspace, the department of defense immediately deploy fighter jets to identify where it came from and, if necessary, fire warning shots to force it to land, according to Japan Times.
Military leaders are unagreeable about what would work extra-terrestrial craft or if it would even be detectable from the ground, the new guidelines could prove very necessary.
Defense Minister Taro Kono told The Japan Times:
“To be honest, I don’t believe in UFOs, but because the [U.S.] Defense Department released such a video, I would like to hear from the U.S. side about its intention and analysis.”
The new protocols to be imposed will be based on a scenario of a pilot encountering a UFO mid-flight whilst on training and surveillance missions.
The protocol the pilots will follow will see them trying to identify the UFO from a safe distance and to conclude whether it is a drone or not. Upon relaying the information, the pilot will be given further orders on what to do by the Defense Direction Center.
Though it’s not clear exactly what those protocols are if an extra-terrestrial craft is discovered, the technology the craft would likely have would be so advanced that the fighter pilots would probably be in the same situation as the Iranian fighter pilots who flew the F4s during the 1976 Tehran UFO incident.
