DoD Announces the Establishment of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution
Office

     On July 15, 2022, Deputy Secretary of Defense
Kathleen Hicks, in coordination with the Director of National
Intelligence (DNI), amended her
original direction
to the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence & Security by
renaming and expanding

By U.S. Dept. of Defense
7-20-22

the scope of the Airborne Object Identification and Management Group (AOIMSG) to
the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), due to the enactment of the
National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2022, which included a provision
to establish an office, in coordination with DNI, with responsibilities that
were broader than those originally assigned to the AOIMSG.

Today, USD(I&S) Hon. Ronald S. Moultrie informed the department of the
establishment of AARO within the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for
Intelligence and Security, and named Dr. Sean M. Kirkpatrick, most recently
the chief scientist at the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Missile and Space
Intelligence Center, as the director of AARO.

The mission of the AARO will be to synchronize efforts across the Department
of Defense, and with other U.S. federal departments and agencies, to detect,
identify and attribute objects of interest in, on or near military
installations, operating areas, training areas, special use airspace and other
areas of interest, and, as necessary, to mitigate any associated threats to
safety of operations and national security. This includes anomalous,
unidentified space, airborne, submerged and transmedium objects.

The AARO Executive Council (AAROEXEC), led by Under Secretary of Defense for
Intelligence & Security (USD(I&S)) Ronald Moultrie, will provide oversight and
direction to the AARO along these primary lines of effort:

1. Surveillance, Collection and Reporting
2. System Capabilities and Design
3. Intelligence Operations and Analysis
4. Mitigation and Defeat
5. Governance
6. Science and Technology
