Luis “Lue” Elizondo is the former director of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), an unpublicized U.S. government program created in 2007 committed to the investigation of UAPs. The AATIP mission was to conduct scientific-based, intelligence investigations of incursions by Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs) into controlled U.S. airspace. After his resignation from government service in 2017 – 2020, Luis joined the To The Stars Academy to advocate for UAP transparency. This effort provided a platform to engage U.S. Congressional leadership, Executive level policy makers, and the media.
In 2018, Lue worked as a Host and Technical producer on A&E’s History Channel’s series UNIDENTIFIED: Inside America’s UFO Investigation, to help expose the truth about the phenomena, while showcasing the investigative process and legitimizing the science behind of UFO research. Since 2020, Luis has focused on disclosure advocacy at the global level, and has been featured extensively in news outlets throughout the world, including CNN, the New York Times, and the History Channel.
