LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Radiance Technologies has quietly become a major player in developing cutting-edge weapons and systems for the Pentagon, with 20 offices in 17 states. When it comes to UFOs or alien technology, the company doesn’t shy away from topics that were previously considered taboo or fringe.
But if someone owns a UFO and asks Radiance scientists to take it apart to figure out how it works, will they accept the contract?
Tim Tinsley, president of Radiance Technology, says yes.
“Why not,” he said. “I’m waiting for one of them.”
Tinsley is an engineer who worked in missile defense systems for 20 years before joining Radiance. Unlike Lockheed Martin or Northrop Grumman, the Huntsville, Alabama-based company is entirely owned by its employees.
“It doesn’t matter if we’re in Las Vegas or San Antonio or Dayton or Ohio or Huntsville,” Tinsley explained. “The idea is that we have a set of core values that run through the company.”
But how exactly does Radiance Technology utilize 105,000 square feet of lab space? The company’s website implies involvement in alien defense technologies, including direct-energy weapons, hypersonic missiles and systems to defend against cyber warfare, among other projects reminiscent of science fiction.
But what happened to Nellis Air Force Base?
“I can’t tell you much,” Tinsley said. “I can tell you that we have supported the Las Vegas community of Nellis Air Force Base for over 20 years.”
The work is primarily about developing, testing and evaluating spectrum for the Air Force, he said.
For more than three decades, Nellis Air Force Base has been rumored to be home to mysterious material of unknown origin. The story is considered folklore by military agencies and defense contractors alike, that a super-secret program at or near a military base at Area 51 in Nevada has been trying to reverse engineer alien technology.
It now appears that there may be some truth to the folklore, as key congressional committees have received closed-door briefings claiming the rumors are true and are awaiting legislation to encourage whistleblowers to come forward and share what they know about the crashed flying saucer.
Radiance Technology could not confirm the allegations, but the company has positioned itself just in case. A few months ago, it announced the hiring of Jay Stratton, a reverse-engineering expert and longtime Navy intelligence officer who was formerly head of the Pentagon’s Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force.
Stratton urged Radiance to hire Dr. Travis Taylor, with whom he served as chief scientist of the UAP working group.
When Radiance announced the hiring of two UFO research veterans, the press release didn’t hide the connection, but made a direct reference to their UFO credentials. But is the company concerned that they could be reverse-engineered UFOs?
“No, we provide customer solutions,” explained Tinsley. “Whatever our customers want us to do and support, we will do it.”
For Taylor’s part, he didn’t say what he and Stratton were doing, but made it clear what they were hoping to solve.
“Jay and I are working to improve the ability to reverse engineer foreign materials,” Taylor explained. “If we were going to reverse engineer it, we would absolutely love to do it.”
