One moment landmark for ufology and UFO theme: one of the most prestigious universities in Germany and the world has decided formalize your research and studies as a legitimate event.
The Julius Maximilian University of Würzburgreleased a press release about its page official, where it indicates that the theme of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenaor Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs), for its acronym in English, as it is called definitely knows about UFOswill be formally investigated.
based December 10, 1402 by the Prince Bishop Johann von Egloffsteinhas become one of the most prestigious public universities in the country, recognized worldwide.
Today it has become an important research center for fans and scholars of unidentified aerial phenomena. become by First time in history, at an institution that officially recognizes the study of UFOs as a legitimate object of academic research.

In one Press releasepublished on its official page, say the following:
“The Interdisciplinary Research Center for Extraterrestrial Studies (IFEX) is an interinstitutional scientific institution of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) Würzburg. It was founded with the aim of intensifying and institutionalizing cooperation between the people and institutions involved.
IFEX members develop technologies to explore space, objects of our solar system, stars and galaxies. In doing so, they also watch for signs of extraterrestrial life and intelligence.
From January 25, 2022, the investigation into Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) this has also been one of the centre’s official purposes. That day, the JMU Senate approved a corresponding extension of the IFEX charter. »
UFOs or UAPs are a phenomenon that, little by little, has earned its place in the scientific field, leaving behind the fame of being something “fantastic and a figment of the imagination”. Already in the 70s, different organizations have devoted themselves to the subjectand in the last century, due to the sightings confirmedparticularly by the United States government, its importance has reached historic heights.
This is why the United States Department of Defense published 2 years ago the recordings made by Navy pilots on 3 UFO sightings dating from 2004 and 2015 respectively.

Focused on study and cooperation
Hakan Kayalprofessor of space technology at the university, said the intention is promote research on NAPs in an “interdisciplinary” framework, carry out their own projects and seek the cooperation of important institutions and authorities in the field.
Kayal has been working on the UFO issue for many years. That’s why he installed the system SkyCAM on the university campus, specially designed for PANs thanks to artificial intelligence.
“Most of these sightings refer to known phenomena or objects, such as birds, planes, satellites or clouds. But in a very small proportion, the cause remains unexplained even after intensive investigation by experts.
It is at this proportion that the teacher wants to arrive and investigate. For this reason he has emphasized his chair where they develop and operate technical systems to detect and evaluate them.
This is how the SkyCAM-5 camera system was installed, which is based on four previous models and has been judged on the roof of a university building since December 2021.

This platform works in an autonomous way, based on custom image processing algorithms, will observe the sky continuously. It is able to detect objects, but also light phenomena of short duration, such as lightning or meteorites. Thanks to this system, Kayal will develop more software to find UAPs.
Official studies on UAPs are multiplying over time. There is no doubt that we are at a crucial moment for the official confirmation of the UFO phenomenon and, possibly, the existence of extraterrestrial life.
