The MADAR Project, with a half century of work in the UAP anomaly detection field, and thousands of dollars invested over the years, has produced several UFO detection systems that developed as technology improved: MADAR (1970-1990) was a magnetic variometer studying anomalies in the geomagnetic field and background radiation. MADAR-II (2014-date) added a fluxgate magnetometer for anomalies in the local E-M field, a mode control panel, two computers, four surveillance cameras, five monitors, a quad video multiplexer, a surveillance camera recorder, a geiger counter also connected to Mineral Labs Radiation Network's live Map, and three data recorders covering five channels. All data time-stamped with the Universal Time signal. With the support of over 50 members, the MADAR Project had only one detection station. Until now! Now anyone can be a part of this world-wide network!
have been over a hundred and fifty documented
reports of compass needle movements during sightings
of UAOs and thousands of E-M cases, some involving
the stopping of cars and trains and even the
shutdown of Minuteman missiles!
MADAR Operations Center, after almost 50 years was
the sole MADAR site at Mt. Vernon, Indiana, and has
been relocated 30 miles to the east at Newburgh and
presently has over a hundred MADAR sites or "nodes"
as they are called, located in the United States and
several foreign countries.
Setup is easy and the device can be ready to operate 24/7 in minutes. The unit operation consists of the device connected to the router/ internet via an Ethernet cable which then sends readings in the form of time-code data lines to our dedicated server. The device does not require a computer to operate but accessing the data does.
sensor looks at data background levels at 15x's per
second but records data on a spreadsheet every 60
seconds. When the device detects an anomaly the
software algorithm puts the MADAR DataProbe into
alert mode. The device, begins sending data much
faster, beginning with the line called AlertStart
which logs data at once per second for the duration
of the event plus an additional 180 seconds.
The operator of the device (anywhere in the world!) is alerted according to his/her * privacy settings in the MADARNET Control System. Level-I Operators are alerted via their cell phone and the anomaly is documented by an alert email. Level-II ops have an additional device referred to as a DAS (alarm box) to act as an early warning device so that the op and his team can get additional handheld equipment outdoors to gather additional data. Later they can retrieve the detection data spreadsheet from their home computer or lap top. What MOC does with the data is the topic of another paper. Data transmitted and recorded by our I-board device gives the Node Number, compass heading change in degrees, geomagnetic field variation in milligaus, barometric pressure in inches of mercury, all date/time-stamped in UTC. The I-board also has an accelerometer which we haven't utilized as yet. Data stored on the server provides information on the magnitude and duration of the event.
can monitor the project and use the Map and site
to look at data. The live screen
MADAR Display or Map shows device locations all
over the U.S. and other parts of the world.
Any part of the world can be displayed
When you left-click on a "node" dot, the pop-up shows the last one-minute line of data. When you look at the spreadsheet the normal "status" (or armed) mode line shows readings one minute apart, all time-dated.
The spreadsheet shows readings every minute, with the last one on top.
Part of an an alert printout with one-second data
updates for the device are automatic and free. The
only additional cost would be add-on devices which
are optional and not needed for standard operation
of the DataProbe, one of which is the DAS alarm
and later an affordable geiger counter
plug-in. The plan is to have have as many
DataProbes as possible all over the world,
especially key sighting areas such as sighting
"hotspots" or locations near missile sites.
setting up these small base stations should try to
get others nearby to put in their own devices in
order to provide a local SKYNET for a Rapid
Response Team equipped with handheld equipment,
still and video cameras, binoculars, night vision
goggles, audio recorders, etc.
