The DSP Connection

An impressive breakthrough in the confirmation of the Iranian UFO

encounter was uncovered by researchers Lee Graham and Ron Regehr,

of Aero-Jet in California. They confirmed that the UFO sighting

over Tehran was, in fact, tracked by the United States military's

DSP satellite.

Some of our readers may be aware that the primary responsibility

of the DSP-1 satellite is to detect the launch of ballistic

missiles. This deep-space platform detects infrared heat through

sensors that are mounted on the body of the satellite. ANYTHING

that emits infrared heat is detected by this apparatus. It can

determine different types of aircraft simply by comparing the

"signature" of the infrared signals displayed by an object

against an intensely complete database of all known aircraft. The

DSP was, as we now know, responsible for the detection of Iraqi

SCUD missile launches during Operation Desert Storm.

During their investigations, Graham and Reghr have located

computer print-outs from the time frame of the the Iranian UFO

overflight, which show that the DSP definitely detected an

"anomalous object" in Iranian air space.

Lee Graham was a guest on Don Ecker's UFOs Tonight radio show on

10/31/93. During the show Don and Lee talk about this particular

To the best of our knowledge, this is the ONLY case in history

where we have confirmation of a UFO sighting by observers both on

the ground, in the air and by the DSP-1. The magnitude of this

revelation should not be overlooked. It would be an interesting

project to compare DSP records to other reported anomalous

sightings around the world.
