In 2004, Sean Cahil, retired US Navy Chief Master-at-Arms, was aboard the USS Princeton when radar picked up extraordinary Tic Tac UFOs.
“The technology that we witnessed with the Tic Tac was something that we would not have been able to defend our forces from at the time,” Cahil said on CNN. (see video below)
Appearing with Christopher Mellon, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, Cahil described the Tic Tac UFO’s abilities.
“What we saw in the Tic Tac and what Mr. Luis Elizondo described as the five observables indicate a technology that outstrips our arsenal by at least 100 to 1,000 years at the moment,” said Cahil.
The Five Observables
In 2008, Luiz Elizondo was first detailed to the secret UFO program sponsored by Senator Harry Reid, then called the Advanced Aerospace Weapon Systems Applications Program. Later, it became the Advanced Aerial Threat Identification Program or AATIP.
During his time at AATIP, Elizondo compiled a list of extraordinary feats that unidentified aerial phenomena shared:
- Anti-gravity lift
- Sudden and instantaneous acceleration
- Hypersonic velocities without signatures (vapor trails or sonic booms)
- Low observability, or cloaking
- Trans-medium travel (moving between air and water)
Tic Tac UFO Abilities
According to Sean Cahil, the Tic Tac UFO was capable of all of the five observables and more.
“First of all, the aircraft had zero control surfaces; it had no means of propulsion that we could detect. It moved at hypersonic velocities, and it proceeded the pilots to their CAP [Combat air patrol] points. So, it seemed to have some knowledge of where the pilots were headed to ahead of time. And, we don’t posses those abilities to do that in our aresenal at the moment,” said Cahil.
Increasingly Bold UFOs
Host Chri Cuomo asked Mellon what he made of the matter.
“We clearly are vulnerable,” said Mellon. “And, this has been going on for too long. Finally, our Congress is learning of this situation. They’re beginning to react. We’ve got a lot of catch-up here, but it’s very concerning.”
Although the UFOs haven’t been hostile, the activities have become bolder, says Mellon.
“It’s not an imminent crisis or imminent threat. There’s been no hostility but there’ a lot of activity, and it’s increasingly bold. In some instances, we’ve had these things swarming around warships off the coast of California, swarming around strategic missile defense spaces in Guam,” he said.
Now, Mellon says, considering all the tensions in the world involving drone attacks, it’s something to take seriously.

What’s Changed About UFOs?
Cuomo asked Mellon why there is a new urgency in studying UFOs today.
In response, Mellon discussed the frustration Elizondo faced in AATIP. As pilots on the East coast saw UFOs frequently, Elizondo’s program was low on resources and unsupported by the intelligence community.
In frustration, he retired in 2017 and joined a group organized by Tom DeLonge, “To the Stars Academy.”
Then, a report in the New York Times that year finally got attention from Congress. The report detailed $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, exposing the Pentagon program to the world.
“Finally, our leadership in both branches of government became aware this was going on. So this has only just come to light,” explained Mellon.
A UFO Breakthrough
Next month, the US executive branch could issue a public UAP report of its activities related to the phenomenon for the first time in half a century.
Meanwhile, journalists at POLITICO and the New Yorker have detailed how Elizondo, journalist George Knapp, DeLonge, Mellon, and many others have pushed UFOs into the mainstream.
Today, DeLonge says there has been a breakthrough as the conversation has changed.
“You rarely read the ridiculous dismissals of the UAP phenomenon that were all too common over the past 70 years,” DeLonge told POLITICO’s, Bryan Bender. “We are witnessing the socialization of the UAP phenomenon in a much more accepting way. I am very optimistic about real research on this phenomenon happening in the near future.”
A Public UAP Reckoning
As we prepare for the June UAP report, nobody knows for sure what to expect. According to Cahil, the Tic Tac UFO encounter may be just the tip of the iceberg.
“I think that we’re going to find that this phenomenon represents a very large spectrum of different things,” said Cahil. “At edges of that spectrum are going to be near-peer technology of our adversaries here on Earth. At the other end of that spectrum is going to be something that we don’t yet understand and haven’t identified yet.”
Although he isn’t sure what the UFOs represent, Cahil knows they seem far beyond human technology.
“So, I hesitate to speculate on the source but I can tell you that I don’t believe that this is within our arsenal of any human technology at the moment.”
However, Cahil doesn’t necessarily think the UAPs are necessarily extraterrestrial.
“What we can say is we don’t know what this is and it’s here. It’s going to take all of us to figure this out together.”
On the other hand, Mellon says there’s no reason to rule out extraterrestrial origins.
As for otherworldly origins, Mellon says, “There’s no scientific reason or basis to doubt that possibility. That’s a hypothesis that could explain the facts. People need to be open to that. We’re spending billions looking for extraterrestrial civilizations. We’ve got spacecraft that have already left the solar system. It’s possible somebody found us before we found them.”
So far, ETs haven’t made contact, and perhaps that’s because they see us as something like less intelligent animals in a zoo.
“If they’re as smart as we think they are then I think we’re kind of silly thinking we can guess their motives,” says Cahil.
Or, perhaps it’s like former Israeli space security chief Haim Eshed said?
“They have been waiting until today for humanity to develop and reach a stage where we will understand, in general, what space and spaceships are,” Eshed said.
