Ce document est le texte intégral de :

Joint Army-Navy-Air Force Publication (JANAP 146(E)), CANADIAN - UNITED STATES COMMUNICATIONS INSTRUCTIONS FOR REPORTING ITAL INTELLIGENCE SIGHTINGS (CIRVIS/MERINT)

tel qu'il a été diffusé le 28 février 1994 par l'Assistant du Secrétaire de la Défense.

Le réglement est complet, y compris la "modification No. 2" (promulguée le 17 Mai 1977). Seulement 10 des 33 pages (sans les pages blanches) constituent le JANAP 146(E) d'origine, les 23 pages suivantes étant dues à la "Modification No. 2".

Le JANAP 146 est intéressant à double titre :

  1. Il est mentionné dans le mémo Bollender (daté de 1969) comme étant l'un des "canaux" par lesquels les rapports d'observation d'ovnis concernant la sécurité nationale sont collectés ; les rapports d'observation d'ovnis ne font pas partie du système Blue Book.
  2. Cette copie est datée de 1977, et présente toujours les "Objets volants non identifiés" comme l'un des éléments devant être rapportés en dépit des protestations de pratiquement toutes les agences interrogées qui indiquent ne plus être intéressées par les ovnis depuis la fermeture du projet Blue Book de l'USAF en 1969.

                 (c) Any airborne, seaborne, ballistic or orbiting
{|  }object which, the observer feels, may constitute a military threat

{|  }government officials.

                             SECTION II - PROCEDURES

202.  General.

      a. Communications procedures to be employed will be basically
those prescribed for the communications system or service used. Con-
tinuing efforts will be made by an aircraft originating a CIRVIS report
to insure that each CIRVIS message is received by an appropriate station.

      b. Every attempt will be made to verify the authenticity of
CIRVIS reports. Where possible, authentication will be required.

{|  }      c. The US Air Force, Office of Primary Responsibility (OPR), for
{|  }such matters is the Assistant Chief of Staff, Intelligence (AFIN),
{|  }Washington, DC 20330.

203. Precedence (priority of transmission).

      a.  To avoid delays by aircraft in rendering a CIRVIS report to a
ground facility, the word "CIRVIS" spoken or transmitted three (3) times
will be employed, preceding the call, to clear the frequency(ies) over
all other communications, except DISTRESS and URGENCY, to insure its
expeditious handling.

      b.  Should instances occur, when use of the above procedure fails
to clear the frequency(ies) over all other communications in progress
except as provided for in 203a, the International Urgency Signal "XXX"
transmitted three (3) times or "PAN" spoken three (3) times will be
employed to facilitate disposition of the message to the receiving faci-

      c.  A post landing report is desired immediately after landing by 
CINCNORAD or RCAF-ADC to amplify the airborne
report(s).  this may be filed with either the Canadian or United
States military or civil communications facilities located
at the place of landing. If the landing is not made in
Canadian or United States territory the report should be

                        2-8                          ORIGINAL

 

                                                                JANAP 146 (E)

made to the nearest Canadian or United States military or diplomatic
representative in that area. The post-landing report will refer to the
airborne report(s) and, in addition, contain a brief resume of weather
conditions at the time of sighting(s), verification of the sighting(s)
by other personnel and any other information deemed appropriate. If the
sighting was identified as friendly and a report so stating was filed
while airborne, no post-landing report is required.

          (1) If no airborne report was made as a result of inability
to reach a Canadian or United States communications station, the post
landing report will contain all the information available concerning
the sighting.

206. Addressing.

      a. Aircraft. - It is imperative that all CIRVIS reports reach
the appropriate military commands as quickly as possible. The reports,
therefore, shall be transmitted as soon as possible after the sighting.
Ground procedures have been established to handle CIRVIS reports by
Canadian-United States military and civil communications facilities, so
the same procedures as those now established and in use by pilots for
air traffic control shall be followed. When contact by civil or military
pilots cannot be established with any ground communications station,
maximum effort shall be made to relay the CIRVIS reports via other air
craft with which communication is possible.

                         * Detachment Commander, AIRCOMHQ Detachment, 
          (1) Post-landing reports should be addressed to CINCNORAD/IN     { |}

Group Headquarters, CFB North Bay, Hornell Heights, Ontario, POH 1PO,      { |}
or CDR Air Command, Canadian Forces Base Winnipeg, Westwin, Man, R2R OTO,  { |}
whichever is the more convenient if the sighting occurred within the area
prescribed in paragraph 206b below.  Whichever of these headquarters
receives the report will immediately notify the other and also all other
addressees of the original report(s). If the sighting(s) occurred in
other areas, the post-landing report should be made to the nearest US or
Canadian military or diplomatic representative in that area who will
forward the report as prescribed in subparagraph 206b(1).

      b. Communications Station. - Communications stations (to include
any Canadian or United States civil or military facility such as control
tower, naval shore radio station, approach control, ARTC center, or any
other communications facility) receiving CIRVIS reports will immediately
after receipting process the report as follows:

{|}reports to ascertain that they have been addressed in accordance with
paragraph 206 and forward reports to any omitted addressees in the United
States and Canada respectively. These headquarters are the normal points
of contact between the two countries and are responsible for passing
CIRVIS reports of interest, including post-landing reports, to each other.

          (2) United States or Canadian military or diplomatic authori-
ties in receipt of CIRVIS reports that have not been previously forwarded
should take the action indicated in paragraph 206 without delay by the
most rapid means available.

           (3) Chief of Staff, USAF, will disseminate CIRVIS reports to
appropriate agencies in the Washington D.C. area.

{|}           (4) ADGHQ NORTH BAY and the Canadian Maritime Commanders will
{|}be responsible for notifying National Defence Headquarters in Ottawa
{|}concerning CIRVIS reports.

the Chief of Naval Operations and appropriate Fleet Commanders concerning
CIRVIS reports, and for timely notification of other sea Frontier
Commanders if the location of the reported contact warrants such notifi-
cation.

      b. Fixed and mobile military communications facilities and military
personnel having occasion to handle CIRVIS reports must lend assistance
in all cases required in expediting CIRVIS reports. All civilian faci-
lities and personnel are also urged to do so. Maximum effort must be
made by all persons handling CIRVIS reports to insure positive immediate
delivery.

208. Military and Civilian. Transmission of CIRVIS reports are subject
to the U.S. Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and the Canadian
Radio Act of 1938, as amended. Any person who violates the provisions
of these acts may be liable to prosecution thereunder. These reports
contain information affecting the national defense of the United States
and Canada. Any person who makes an unauthorized transmission or dis-
closure of such a report may be liable to prosecution under Title 18 of    {|}
the US Code 793, Chapter 37, or the Canadian Official Secrets Act of 1939, {|}
as amended. This should not be construed as requiring classification of
CIRVIS messages. The purpose is to emphasize the necessity for the
handling of such information within official channels only.

priate commands as listed in paragraph 206 are kept fully informed of
investigative results and evaluations. These evaluations shall be ex-
pressed in terms indicating the reported sighting as being Positive,
Probable, Possible, or No Threat insofar as being a threat to the security
of the United States of America and Canada or their forces, or an 
explanation of the subject reported when known.

      b. The first two words of the text of an evaluation report shall
be "CIRVIS EVALUATION" followed by the date and time of sighting and/or
other identification of the CIRVIS report(s) being evaluated.

305.  Additional MERINT Reports.

       a. Amplifying Reports. -

          (1) When additional information becomes available to any
       observer and is of importance, it is to be
       transmitted as a "MERINT AMPLIFY" report.

                                 3-3                         ORIGINAL

          (2) Amplifying reports are to be handled in the
      same way as the original report except that the first 
      two words of the text will be "MERINT AMPLIFY" followed
      by the date and time of filing of the MERINT report
      being amplified.                
   
          (3) Amplifying reports on aerial objects normally 
      consist of additional information pertaining to the
      sighted object's size; shape; description of jet or 
      rocket streams; color; sound; if multiple objects, the 
      number; type; method of propulsion; number of engines; 
      insignia and estimated speed.

           (4)  Amplifying reports on submarines or surface 
      sightings normally consist of additional information 
      on the state of sea and weather, including visibility; 
      actions of object (course, speed, evasive maneuvers, 
      etc.); identification marks, (flags, signals, numbers, 
      exchange of communication); closest range at which 
      object observed; any further remarks, (dived, surfaced, 
      commenced snorkeling, stopped snorkeling, etc.)

      b. Cancellation Reports.-

           (1)  Cancellation reports should be made in the 
      event a previously reported sighting is positively 
      identified as friendly, erroneous or false.

           (2)  MERINT cancellations are to be handled in the 
      same manner as the original MERINT report except that 
      the first two words shall be "MERINT CANCEL" followed 
      by the date and time of filing of the MERINT report 
      being cancelled and, in brief, the information on 
      which the cancellation is based.

       c. Delayed Reports.- In the event a MERINT report 
cannot be made by radio, the Master is requested to report 
the details of the MERINT sightings to the appropriate 
Canadian or United States military authorities. If the 
port of arrival is outside of Canada or USA, the report is 
to be made to the nearest Canadian or US military or dip-
lomatic representative in the area. This report should 
be submitted immediately upon arrival in port by any
available means and should be in the format prescribed 
in paragraph 304.  If photographs were taken and have not
already been forwarded, they should be forwarded as in-
dicated in paragraph 104 as soon as possible after reaching

                               3-4                   ORIGINAL

any commercial, government or military facility such as coastal marine
radio station, telegraph office, naval or coast guard shore radio station
or any other communications facility) receiving MERINT reports will
immediately after receipting process the report as follows:

           (1) Canadian or US commercial or government communications
stations will handle MERINT reports received from either vessels or
other communications stations by immediately forwarding them to a Canadian
or US military fixed communication facility as prescribed by agreement
with the appropriate military commander.

           (2) US military fixed communications stations receiving
MERINT reports on sightings in overseas areas will forward the report
to the following addressees:
