Unidentified Submerged Objects (USOs) Rebranded to Unidentified Undersea Phenomena (UUP)

The deep, dark depths of the ocean have always been a source of mystery and intrigue. From ancient legends of sea monsters to modern tales of advanced underwater technology, there's no denying the fascination with what lies beneath the waves. One aspect of this intrigue is the phenomenon of Unidentified Submerged Objects (USOs), which have recently been given a rebranding to Unidentified Undersea Phenomena (UUP).


Unidentified Undersea Phenomena (UUP): Shedding Light on the Mystery

Recent email exchanges reveal the military’s rebranding of unidentified underwater objects as Unidentified Undersea Phenomena (UUPs) to shake off stigma, similar to the renaming of UFOs as UAPs.

Rebranding Unidentified Undersea Objects

An email exchange between Tim Gallaudet, a former Navy oceanographer and administrator of the National Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Pentagon’s All Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) reveals that unidentified undersea objects have been rebranded as Unidentified Undersea Phenomena (UUPs). This change mirrors the renaming of UFOs to Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs) by the military to remove the associated stigma.

Obtaining Information on UUPs

Researchers who uncovered this information suggest that individuals seeking specific details about these underwater objects through the Freedom of Information Law may request documents containing the term USO (OSNI in Spanish). However, this approach may yield no records because agencies have adopted a different term for the phenomenon.

UAPs, UUPs, and the Ocean Connection

Following the Nimitz incident, numerous testimonies from United States Navy personnel have highlighted a close relationship between UAPs and UUPs and the oceans. Some high-ranking officials have even suggested the existence of underwater bases from which these objects might originate. In his email, Gallaudet states, “This phenomenon has been observed by credible witnesses, and it defies the laws of physics as we know them. As I have mentioned here, their study could eventually lead us to rewrite the books on what we know about the oceans (or the universe if you prefer).”


The thing about USOs or UUP

As I have explained in previous articles, for decades, Unidentified Submerged Objects, or USOs, have captivated the attention of scientists and researchers as underwater phenomena that continue to baffle the world. Often observed entering and exiting bodies of water at remarkable speeds, these objects display sudden turns and other extraordinary maneuvers that defy our current understanding of physics. While some individuals dismiss these sightings as mere natural occurrences or cases of misidentified marine life, others theorize that they might be evidence of covert underwater bases or even extraterrestrial involvement.
