TR-3B Tactical Reconnaissance Nuclear Powered Aerospace Platform

TR-3B Tactical Reconnaissance Nuclear Powered Aerospace Platform

By Ron G Anselm


"We choose to go to the moon [and beyond], not because it is easy, but because it is hard." John F. Kennedy.

Recently, my editor at The Student Operated Press asked me to cover a story about the TR-3B. This is an amazing piece of technology.  It is a new type of aircraft that the US government has been working on since the 90s.  It is right up there with the majority of the UFOs that people have claimed to see in the skies worldwide. The UFO (TR-3B) would probably out do anything that may or could be part of the space programs around the world or elsewhere.

If you really knew how much behind the scenes research that goes on that we never hear about, it would amaze you. I am ex-military and have been around many Top Secret pieces of technology I cannot discuss.  At one point, I held Top Secret Clearance when I was in the Army as a result of my duties. I now realize that I haven`t seen but the tip of the iceberg when it comes to our government`s new technological advances, military weaponry and their capabilities.

There are numerous reports worldwide about the TR-3B; however there is not a lot of in-depth analysis on it mainly because this new piece of flying technology heeds Top Secret Clearance and a Need to Know" basis to find out more about it.

From what I have read so far about this Triangular UFO; it has been spotted by people only a handful of times in the last sixteen-years. It is more elusive than a Cougar hunting for its prey. The description I have read about this is that it is pitch-black, triangular shaped, about six-hundred feet across and has been seen just hovering in the air at times for about ten to fifteen minutes.  A corona of silver blue light glowing around the circumference of the massive TR-3B floating as gently and slowly like a leaf floating down to Earth from a high tree landing on whatever tarmac that may be sitting above.

Not sure if this space vehicle can be or could be used for any military combat operations, it sounds to me like it would almost be like our Stealth Bomber but at ten times more powerful rate of explosive weaponry, which is the difference to how a professional boxer hits compared to a Traditional Karate punch. It`s the difference between night and day in power.

The TR-3B name for this is really the code name of Astra. It is said to have been around since the early 1990`s but of course we wouldn`t for sure know that because it was not advertised as even being in existence. The TR-3B was probably spotted by some farmer or hiker way out in some corn field or up in the wilderness in the mountains and taken as seen a flying UFO. That person that saw the TR-3B probably reported to some law enforcement agency that they just spotted a UFO.

The operator taking the call and filing the report logged it in the system as a reported UFO, however, it was really the TR-3B out on a test flight so at that point the information would date back to the first reports of seeing a UFO, after which it would be referenced back to TOP Secret government files that the TR-3B was in the same area that UFO sighting had occurred. So, that is how it has been determined that the first flights date back to about 1994 because that information would also be Top Secret and not made available but to a handful of people.  It would have to be referenced in some other roundabout way. The development of this aircraft is at the highest level of secrecy.

The TR-3B was developed under the Top Secret Aurora Program with SDI and black budget monies. At least 3 of the billion dollar plus TR-3Bs were flying by 1994. The Aurora is a space development program. It is even more Top Secret than knowing about what the President does on those long Air Force One flights.  The program is the most classified space development program in existence.

The TR-3B is the most exotic vehicle created by the Aurora Program. It is funded and operationally tasked by the National Reconnaissance Office, the NSA, and the CIA. The TR-3B flying triangle is not fiction and was built with technology available in the mid-1980s. " (

With the TR-3B flying around on test missions every now and then does not mean that every time someone reports that they saw a UFO, that the object in the sky reported, in fact, was the TR-3B. You never know whatever is spotted could be and it may be a valid report that some unknown source is out and about and even doing extraterrestrial research on our planet but the way the TR-3B looks and the way this aeronautical wonder maneuvers in, may just be the TR-3B out on a Sunday test flight.

The TR-3B is built as sturdy and rugged as an MIAI Main Battle tank. The outer coating of the vehicle is reactive to any type of radar stimulation and has the ability to also change reflectiveness, radar absorptiveness and color. This means that the outer coating is resistant to radar, so the vehicle can virtually fly anywhere at any time undetected.

The TR-3B is equipped with electronic countermeasures and when used in conjunction with its ECCM, the polymer skin has the ability to actually change the vehicles appearance. It can look like a small aircraft or a flying cylinder which as you can see would very easily be mistaken as a flying UFO (from another planet) but (from Earth) it really is our flying UFO.

The other amazing capability of this aircraft is it can also give the appearance (tricking any radar receivers with its polymer skin) of being a slew of other varieties of aircraft, no aircraft at all, or several other types of aircraft and other and various locations. The aircraft is also equipped with a circular rings filled with plasma which is called a Magnetic Field Disrupter and surrounds the rotatable crew compartment.  This technology alone is far more advanced than any imaginable technology.

The Magnetic Field Technology was developed by Sandia and Livermore Laboratories and our government is as fierce about protecting this type of technology as a mother tiger is about protecting her baby cubs. I have never heard of this type of technology and it leaves me in AWE!

The MFD technology`s characteristics consist of mercury based plasma and is pressurized at 250,000 atmospheres and at a temperature of 150 degrees Kelvin and accelerated to 50,000 rpm (revolutions per minute) which when combined creates super-conductive plasma with the results being an armor of any type of gravity disruption. The MFD generates a magnetic vortex field which is how the gravity on mass is disrupted or neutralized within a proximity of eighty-nine percent.

"Do not misunderstand; this is not antigravity. Anti-gravity provides a repulsive force that can be used for propulsion. The MFD creates a disruption of the Earth`s gravitational field upon the mass within the circular accelerator. The mass of the circular accelerator and all mass within the accelerator, such as the crew capsule, avionics, MFD systems, fuels, crew environmental systems, and the nuclear reactor, are reduced by 89%. This causes the effect of making the vehicle extremely light and able to outperform and outmaneuver any craft yet constructed "except, of course, those UFOs we did not build." (

The TR-3B is as more propulsion than any 747, 727, or Commercial out there today. It has three multimode thrusters at each bottom corner of its triangle platform. It is known as a sub-Mach nine vehicle until it climbs to an altitude in excess of 120,000 feet. Once it is cruising above 120,000 feet there is no telling how fast it can really go.

The three rocket thruster engines use hydrogen or methane and oxygen as a propellant. The fuel mixture in the liquid and oxygen rocket system mix is comprised of eighty-five percent mass of oxygen. The rockets are nuclear thermal and use a hydrogen propellant with an accent of oxygen for additional power and thrust.

The vehicle is equipped with a reactor that heats up the liquid hydrogen and injects the heated liquid oxygen into a supersonic nozzle so that the chemistry of hydrogen burns concurrently on the liquid oxygen`s afterburner. Having a multimode propulsion system installed give the TR-3 capabilities to operate in the atmosphere, or operate with the hydrogen propulsion, in the upper-atmosphere, and an added versatility with the combined hydrogen and oxygen propulsion; operate in orbit.

It sounds like with all this versatility and technology that NASA needs to build another Space Shuttle like the one we just retired. This vehicle is like having a Space Shuttle, space rocket and space capsule all in one. The TR-3B is so powerful with its three rocket jet propulsion engines built by Rockwell that those engines only have to propel about eleven percent of the vehicles mass.  You have to remember that this is so Top Secret that there are also other versions of this vehicle in existence.

To be able to protect the name, TR-3B the top government agencies like the NSA, NRO, CIA and United States Air Force have been playing a game to keep the aircraft nomenclature as secret and under wraps as possible. The reason is to create confusion to any other country that may try to steal the technology. With this reasoning; there are various modification to the original TR-3B which include the TR-3A, which also include tiers of 2, 3, and 4 versions with suffix that are plus or minus added which again confuse further that the fact of each of these designations are of a different aircraft and not the same as the original space vehicle. Any government other than ours that would try to steal this technology would be confused as to what technology they were stealing, would it be the technology for the TR-3B? TR-3A? Or what designation of this aircraft would they be stealing? If they even attempted to do so. A TR3B vehicle is as different from a TR-3A vehicle as is the difference between night and day and some of these different and various versions have the capability to be manned or unmanned.

As I mentioned above about the TR-3B being spotted by onlookers out and about on their life`s journeys; I have listed a little blog (below) on some of the comments these people have made after their experience of seeing the TR-3 flying elusively to wherever it may have roamed in the past.

-Husband and son saw this thing near barksdale AFB in Louisiana in august of this year (FoucheMedia)

- I have wondered for 16 years what the craft was I saw in 97. We pulled off the side of a low travel country road and watched it for a few minutes in total awe, confusion and fear by what we saw silently hovering over an open field to the side of us. I have for years tried to figure it out but nothing ever looked or acted right till now. I was with 2 others when we saw it. Thank you for this post. It was in Michigan about an hour from Selfridge air base in the country where we saw it. (FoucheMedia)

- That`s interesting that you say this, for I saw the same thing fly over my head in 1997 but I was living in Denver, had three bright lights and as it slowly flew towards us I finally comprehended that this was a massive object gliding against the night sky silently " I had an idea of what I saw when years ago Popular Mechanic`s had on its cover the "Aurora." (FoucheMedia)

- I live just outside of DC. A few days after 9/11 with no other lights in the sky I witnessed 3 lights flying overhead in a triangular pattern. They were high enough for me to think they were recon planes or satellites. But, the longer I thought about it and looked at them, I was sure that it was a single object. I ran inside, I`ve never been so fearful and I`ve only told my wife until I read this article. (FoucheMedia)

- It`s a hot pocket put into orbit by sewer gas and, a spark and lighter fluid. (FoucheMedia)

- My sons and I actually saw 2 of these in Plainfield, Illinois off of rte 59/127th street hovering over 2 separate cornfields in September 2012 at approximately 11pm. Silent, black and hovering a few hundred feet off the ground. No idea which "model" they were. We were within 1/4 mile of 1 and a few miles away from the second one. (FoucheMedia)

This thing really does get around in an elusive way. It is still a very Top Secret piece of technology and not a lot is really known about it by the general public. Maybe one day this aeronautical space platform that has put so many people in Awe! When they spotted it will be out in the media more and we can learn more about it as we all read this article and continue to be as curious as a cat chasing a bird in a tree about this piece of amazing technology.
