Intensive training in preparation for new tasks
The staff of the UFO Competence Centre underwent intensive training a few weeks ago in order to be able to master their future activities. This included simulated UFO activities on the radar and in the tower simulator. They also reviewed documentary material (such as the Roswell crash or UFO video recordings from the US Navy), as well as the study of spaceships and their flight behaviour in well-known science fiction feature films. This all-round training enables Skyguide’s UFO experts to quickly detect and document unidentified flying objects.
Cooperation with governmental and private space organisations
Thanks to existing and future space missions by governmental (e.g. ESA, NASA, etc.) and private (e.g. SpaceX) organisations, Skyguide is expecting an increase in intergalactic traffic. This opens up completely new fields of activity and cooperation for Switzerland’s air navigation services in the future.
