New Global Organization Launches - International Coalition for Extraterrestrial Research (ICER)

I am very proud to announce that I have accepted the position of UK Deputy Representative as part of a new international organization linked with the UFO/UAP phenomenon! I have kept this under wraps for a number of months, but today this organization has gone public and I am finally able to share the details of this with everyone. I will of course continue to perform my role of Chairman of BUFOG. Below is the press release which has just gone out worldwide, followed by the launch promo video (Make sure you enable subtitles). Please feel free to share!

ICER is a not-for-profit organization of scientists, academics and leading UFO/UAP researchers from 27 countries on 5 continents who are unanimous in their recognition that the phenomenon is REAL and it acts with INTELLIGENCE.

Based on more than 75 years of research, ICER acknowledges that the UFO/UAP is likely to be EXTRATERRESTRIAL or NON-HUMAN in origin.


One of ICER’s national representatives is Professor Lachezar Filipov from Bulgaria, a Space Astrophysicist who supervised the training of their first astronauts.

Another is Eamonn Ansbro, an astronomer based in the Republic of Ireland who is set to feature in a book with Harvard Professor Avi Loeb that is due for release in late 2021.

Both Filipov and Ansbro ardently believe that it is time to purge the stigma that has plagued the UFO phenomenon for decades and embark on serious scientific studies.


The organisation’s launch comes in the wake of recent verified events:

· A New York Times article from 16th December 2017 revealed a hitherto secret UFO/UAP research program into the phenomenon between 2007-2012 with a $22 million budget.

· This article confirmed that US Navy fighter pilots had captured astonishing footage of unidentified aerial vehicles operating in the airspace of the United States in a series of infrared videos taken in 2004 and 2015.

· Significantly, the objects observed were unlike anything the pilots had seen before and they moved in spectacular ways that appeared to be technologically far beyond anything man has yet developed.

· In June 2020, a special US Navy Task Force was created to investigate these objects, which are being encountered by its pilots with increasing frequency. The Task Force is due to submit a highly anticipated report to the US Congress by June 25, 2021.


ICER believes that all countries now need to prepare for confirmation that the Earth is being engaged by non-human intelligences and are proposing ‘awareness’ programs to be established to deal with the profound issue of Contact and its global implications.

ICER aims to take this discussion to the highest levels of governance, including the United Nations.
