Given the existence of the UAPTF, we tried to know more about this Task Force and on September 17, 2021, I called by phone the U.S. Navy Commander Michael P. Cody of the Defense Press Operations.
At his suggestion, I sent a letter to Ms. Susan Gough of Public Affairs within the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
Our questions and the reply we obtained from Ms. Gough could be found in our article published on September 22, 2021, on this webpage.
Then, we sent an e-mail to the Director of the National Intelligence, (Ms.Avril Hains) Press Office to no avail
Given the fact that the military side was not ready to simply tell us if there would be a second report to the Senate by the UAPTF, we decided to appeal to the Legislative Body.
Therefore, we filled a form requesting information from the Chairman ofthe U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Senator Mark Warner, Democrat for Virginia.
Regretfully we didn't obtain an answer.
We continue our effort to get a reply and we filleda form directed to the Vice-Chairman of the Committee on Intelligence, Senator Marco Rubio, Republican from Florida.
Senator Rubio kindly replied to our request sending us the following letter:
From: Senator Marco Rubio <Do_Not_Reply@Rubio.senate.gov>
Sent: lunes, 1 de noviembre de 2021 10:07 a. m.

Following the indication of Sen. Rubio, we filled a form requesting the same information to the Hon. Chuck Grassley, Republican Senator fromIowa.On Monday 15, November 11, 2021, Senator Grassley promised us to get an answer, and on November 30, he was so kind to send us a letter keeping his promise. Here is the document:
November 30, 2021
Thank you for taking the time to contact me with your concerns regarding a report on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP). As your senator, it is important to me that I hear from you.
I appreciate hearing from you about the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, specifically, if the Committee has received additional reports on unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP). The June 25 report regarding a preliminary assessment on UAP was provided to Congress following the enactment of the Intelligence Authorization Act (IAA) for fiscal year 2021. The fiscal year 2021 IAA directed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to submit a report to Congress within 180 days, and there was not a requirement for additional reports.
You may be interested to know that S.2610, the Intelligence Authorization Act (IAA) for fiscal year 2022 includes a provision directing the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to submit its next report on UAP within 90 days after enactment of the bill and at least quarterly moving forward. Therefore, I do anticipate that the relevant congressional committees will receive additional reports in the future.
As your senator, I will continue to evaluate legislation that comes before the Senate regarding U.S. policies related to UAP.
Thank you again for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to reach out if I can be of any help in the future. Keep in touch.
United States Senator
We are very grateful to Senator Chuck Grassley whose action deserves to be emphasized as well as his disposition to bring his help in the future.
Now we will be giving our attention to the activity of the new entity recently created, the Airborne Object Identification and Management Synchronization Group (AOIMSG), because –as it says at the end of the official announcement of November 23, 2021: "In coming weeks, the Department will issue implementing guidance, which will contain further details on the AOIMSG Director, organizational structure, authorities, and resourcing"
