Ryan Wood earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Computer
Science from California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo
in 1978. Following graduation he began a product marketing career at
Intel Corporation, marketing and computer sales at Digital Equipment,
engineering management at Toshiba, then marketing and sales at two Silicon
Valley start-ups. From 1989 - 1996 he was an independent consultant,
focusing on improving client business success primarily through better
promotion, customer service, product communication, and sales. For the
last five years, until present, he has been the director of business
development and sales at an energy conservation company.
Notable achievements have come from efforts at public relations, marketing
communications, strategic planning and product sales. Most recently,
closing an 18 million dollar contract with Bonneville Power Administration
for the purchase of energy conservation devices. Tactical accomplishments
include product launch press placements in major print; for example,
the Wall Street Journal, San Francisco Chronicle, and major market TV
coverage on CBS, NBC, and ABC.
A veteran of numerous product introductions, Mr. Wood has developed
and executed advertising and promotion campaigns, direct mail programs,
and telemarketing in both consumer businesses (900 numbers, world-wide-web,
lottery software) and industrial products (energy conservation, document
imaging, medical imaging, semiconductors, and computer systems) Mr.
Wood is talented at sales, customer support, market research, strategic
planning, finance, briefing preparations, public speaking and product
management and introductions. He has given more than 40 large audience
talks or seminars.
Major UFO efforts have been around documents, their authenticity, and
related validation. He manages the content of www.majesticdocuments.com,
has completed a television documentary titled, "The Secret,” with Dr.
Robert M. Wood, along with publishing two books and a CD-ROM dealing
with the Majestic documents and their authenticity. Other UFO-related
projects include papers titled: "Ufology: In Search Of Leadership,"
"Abductee Blood Analysis," and "Fundraising: The Motherlode of UFO Membership."
As a UFO investigator with MUFON he has chosen to specialize in the
strategic problems of ufology: unquestionable proof, improved media
acceptance, and a dramatic ten-fold membership increase.
Mr. Wood is an Eagle Scout, Black Belt in Goju-Ryu, a triathlete, a
promoter, and an avid entrepreneur.

Roswell: Evidence For A Crash Retrieval In Cape Girardeau Missouri
In 1941 (1.3 MB)
Paper presented at the International MUFON Symposium in Irvine,
CA, July 2001.
This paper reviews the primary and secondary sources and evidence
for the reality of an extraterrestrial spacecraft crash-retrieval
in Cape Girardeau, Missouri in the spring of 1941. It draws upon
the new Majestic and Interplanetary Phenomenon Unit intelligence
documents that support the hypothesis of an extraterestrial crash
and reviews the authenticity results for each. Furthermore, suggestive
and supporting authentic documents interconnect to these new ones
and ultimately advance the reasonable conclusion that according
to both the paper trail and witnesses this is the “First Roswell.”
Close attention is paid to the primary witness, Reverend Huffman,
and related testimony of granddaughter Charlette Mann. Historical
research in the area has identified other witnesses and likely
participants in the event. Specifics, of police, fire, photographers,
coroners and military commanders that likely should have been
at the scene are analyzed and tested for accuracy. Other sources
are analyzed for validity and contrasted with known historical
facts, pinning down the date and location of the event.
Psychological Warfare and the Majestic Documents: Little Evidence
of Deception (74k)
This paper on Psychological Warfare and the Majestic documents
leads the reader through the basic principles of psywar and psychological
operations (psyop). It then develops a series of tests or criteria
to determine the fingerprints of a psywar operation and tests
those criteria against the body of "leaked" Majestic-12 documents.
Career military experts in psywar are interviewed and find no
evidence that the Majestic documents are intended for a specific
target or to accomplish a defined objective, a necessary prerequisite
of an effective psyop. In fact, these documents if leaked in the
50's or 60's would have engendered intense espionage by many foreign
powers — exactly the wrong outcome.
FISA, UFOs, and National Security (24k)
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) of October 25, 1978
is ostensibly designed for detecting, tracking, and catching spies from
other governments. The Act's powers are tremendous. The court’s decisions
are reached in secret with no published orders, opinions, or public
record. Probable cause for electronic and physical searches may result
solely from the basis of associations, membership in an organization,
or status. All it takes is for a Federal officer—typically FBI or NSA—
to fill out the paperwork and have the Department of Justice approve
it, and then U.S. citizen constitutional rights are erased. The public
is expected to accept on blind faith that law enforcement and intelligence
agencies are not overstepping their bounds. The critical question is
the interpretation of foreign intelligence—does that include U.S. citizens
investigating alien and extraterrestrial matters?
