To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
Copies of all releasable data, validating documents, communications (e.g. emails and written letters), reports and memoranda regarding unidentified aerial, atmospheric and/or airborne anomalies recorded by the Global Infrasound Acoustic Monitoring Network — as discussed internally by the federal agency or department receiving this request. This is the request to three federal groups known to participate in support of the the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization: the Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration; the Department of Defense’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency; and the Department of State’s Bureau of Arms Control, Verification and Compliance. See press release here: https://www.energy.gov/nnsa/articles/sandias-support-international-nuclear-explosion-monitoring-and-treaty-verification
This request also includes all relevant sent information and analysis as sent to your agency, department, administration or bureau from the International Data Centre (IDC) in Vienna, Austria or the 300+ monitoring stations and laboratories of the International Monitoring System (IMS) regarding unidentified aerial, atmospheric and/or airborne anomalies.
The documents will be used in the course of reporting for a documentary podcasting project for iHeart Radio. As this is a journalism project, I am asking that all fees be waived. I would also ask for a staggered release schedule if certain material will take significantly longer to collect and release than the rest of the requested records.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
Attached is the response to your FOIA request.
