The Society for UAP Studies is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization that seeks to bring together serious thinkers (both academics and professionals) who are committed to advancing the study of the UAP phenomenon to the next level of rigorous scholarly engagement. The Society's primary output is the biannual, peer-reviewed journal Limina.

As a learned society, our goal is to collaborate closely with academic institutions to foster the development of an empirically responsible ecosystem of exchange among academics and professionals dedicated to UAP Studies. We firmly believe that this ecosystem should uphold the values of free, open, and unapologetic curiosity while maintaining the rigorous standards of critical skepticism. It is through this skepticism that the empirical disciplines have historically guarded against speculative or interpretive anarchy, and we aim to uphold and continue this tradition.

**The Society is now in operation and is working to approve membership applications. Please consider becoming a member today!**

Affiliate Research Organizations

The Society is developing much-needed infrastructure for cooperation and informational exchange among all serious UAP research organizations around the world. This infrastructure will also provide an opportunity for interfacing between these groups and the academic community at large who are serious about the rigorous study of the phenomena.

Here you will learn about each organization affiliated with the Society, including their ongoing and active research projects, their staffing or volunteer needs and their funding requirements. You will also have a change to connect with the leaders of these pioneering research efforts, and explore membership opportunities to see if you can be part of their important work. 

If you are part of such an organization, please reach out to us and get connected!


The UFO Data Acquisition Project (UFODAP) objective is to enable UAP/UFO research by deployment of advanced data collection technology. Their systems are employed by a number of cutting-edge UAP research organizations around the world, including UAPx.

UAP Tracker is a daily live stream on YouTube watching the skies for anomalous events. Interesting events captured on the live stream and from motion tracking software are uploaded after the live stream ends.  Links are then posted in the recorded live stream video description and comment sections.​ It features consumer grade technology available from online stores


GEP - Society for Research into the UFO Phenomenon (Germany)

The Society for Research into the UFO Phenomenon has been serving as a non-profit organization in Germany for 50 years as a contact point for sighting reports and questions on the subject of Unidentified Flying Objects - UFOs or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena - UAP .

As a civil citizen science organization, the GEP is committed to the principles of honest scientific practice in researching the UFO phenomenon and has been an associated member of the Interdisciplinary Research Center for Extraterrestrials (IFEX) at the Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg since 2022.

Project Hessdalen

Project Hessdalen is the longest standing UAP research project in the world. Numerous PhD-level researchers have worked on the project since the 1980s, when the phenomena were first detected.

Virtual Workshops

SUAPS intends to develop a number of virtual workshops for the purposes of doing fundamental research on a number of key areas of UAP studies in need of further conceptual development. One area of interest would be the intersection of UAP and consciousness studies. Another area of interest would be the role of fundamental physics in explaining the UAP phenomenon.

Empty Chairs in Lecture Room


The Society is launching a series of online courses (both traditional semester-long classes, and shorter seminars) that look at the UAP enigma from various academic disciplinary approaches. Our curriculum will emphasize the more foundational questions that arise for the study of such a difficult subject.
