The Honorable 
Tim Gallaudet, PhD, Rear Admiral, U.S. Navy (ret) is a career oceanographer and technology consultant. Formerly, he served as the acting Undersecretary and Assistant Secretary of Commerce, acting and Deputy Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and Oceanographer of the Navy.  Currently, Gallaudet serves as a strategic advisor and board member for several startups, nonprofits, and research institutions in the ocean, weather, environment, and space sectors. Gallaudet has had a lifelong interest in UAP, but his experience as the Superintendent of the U.S. Naval Observatory gave him a greater appreciation for their scientific validity. He now is a research affiliate for Harvard University’s Galileo Project and an Advisory Board member for Americans for Safe Aerospace. As a member of the Ocean Studies Board in the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, and a nominee for the White House Ocean Research Advisory Panel, Gallaudet is seeking to elevate the scientific study of undersea and transmedium UAP to a national research priority. He is a fellow at The Explorer’s Club, a distinguished graduate of the University of California, San Diego, and a recipient of the U.S. Coast Guard Distinguished Public Service Award. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the U.S. Naval Academy, as well as master’s and doctoral degrees from Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
