Tom DeLonge's To The Stars Academy Is Working With The U.S. Army

Former blink-182 singer and guitarist Tom DeLonge has always been a stargazer obsessed with UFOs and aliens, having formed the To The Stars Academy Of Arts & Science to help study and research "exotic technologies." But he scored a major win last month when the U.S. Navy acknowledged that the unidentified objects in certain To The Stars videos were real. Now, it looks like the organization is about to take a big step forward, as it's been announced that To The Stars and the U.S. Army are working together.

According to Business Insider, the U.S. Army have announced a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with To The Stars. The former are interested in the "material science, space-time metric engineering, quantum physics, beamed energy propulsion, and active camouflage" research of the Academy, which they claim "have the potential to enhance survivability and effectiveness of multiple Army systems." In return, the Army will provide To The Stars with "laboratories, expertise, support, and resources to help characterize the technologies and its applications."

According to Dr. Joseph Cannon of the U.S. Army's Futures Command, "Our partnership with TTSA serves as an exciting, non-traditional source for novel materials and transformational technologies to enhance our military ground system capabilities. At the Army's Ground Vehicle Systems Center, we look forward to this partnership and the potential technical innovations forthcoming."

To The Stars's COO and Aerospace Division Director Steve Justice also said, "This cooperative research agreement brings additional, critically important expertise that is necessary to advance the state-of-the-art in both our near and long-term technology areas of study. While the Army has specific military performance interests in the research, much of the work is expected to have dual-use application in support of TTSA's path to commercialization and public benefit mission."

What the Academy's research will create or uncover remains to be seen. But if there's one thing we've learned from '80s movies, it's to be careful what the Army does with your technology.
