This bit is interesting: Multiple factors affect the observation or detection of UAP, such as weather, illumination, atmospheric effects, or the accurate interpretation of sensor data. Regarding review or analysis of UAP events, ODNI and AARO operate under the assumption that UAP reports are derived from the observer’s accurate recollection of the event and/or sensors that generally operate correctly and capture enough real data to allow initial assessments. However, ODNI and AARO acknowledge that a select number of UAP incidents may be attributable to sensor irregularities or variances, such as operator or equipment error. This implies that reviews and analysis by ODNI and AARO will always overestimate the proportion of reported incidents that are objectively mysterious. Those incidents that might be explained by equipment error, sensor irregularities or (importantly) operator or observer error will be treated as if equipment operated correctly, the operator was competent and has accurate recollection etc.
