At least some of those TTSA "parts" were the basis for a cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) with an US Army lab to determine if there is any technology that can be derived from them to upgrade military ground transport.
The partnership will explore metamaterials, quantum communications, beamed energy propulsion and other futuristic tech for use on the military’s ground vehicles. Content from External Source https://www.nextgov.com/emerging-te...tive-camouflage-and-other-sci-fi-tech/160787/
My first reaction was utter depression upon reading this. It sounds like an AASWAP Bigelow do over, but now with DeLong.
However, while this partnership might warrant a thread of its own, it's not quite as bad. This is from 2019 when TTSA was still trying to sound "sciency" as opposed to their other stated goal of entertaining. TTSA didn't get any money:
And the Army admitted that it was a bit fringe, and they weren't interested in aliens:Unlike traditional contracts, cooperative research and development agreements, or CRADAs, are not transactional, so TTSA isn’t getting any money from the partnership and the Army won’t be directly acquiring any new tech.
Any more on it would be off topic here, other than as another lesson on the intersectionality of UFOs, the military and the media. Still depressing.Though he called the recent CRADA “one of the more adventurous” partnerships he’s worked on, Halleaux was quick to dismiss any claims that the Army was studying “alien technology.” TTSA may purport the metamaterials and other tech in their possession came from UFOs, but for the Army, those claims are irrelevant, he said.
