It's hard to believe but in 2009 we had about a hundred radar cases listed, but few fully documented. I'm sure we have a long way to go but the ones found in the Blue Book files have been a priority and they end with the close of Blue Book in December of 1969. In June of that year our team began an aggressive project termed RADCAT, which began converting old radar cases to what we refer to as "RADCAT status" and also discovered new incidents.  By the end of 2009 we had 132 cases posted. In 2010 we produced 301 additional ones. Although the radar case input slowed down and we began another major project (AVCAT) we produced 35 more cases in 2011. Last year, in the process of hunting down sightings from aircraft, we found and converted an additional 13 cases, giving us 481 RADCAT directories to-date, along with supporting documents from the Blue Book files.  To see the actual breakdown and cases filed, see the link above.

To view all the radar cases (Category 9) from the NICAP DBase and see which ones have been RADCATed and which ones are pending, go to the pdf file below.  Look for the "R" in the catalogue column.
