Analysis and Review of Edgar Fouche's Military, and DOD contractors reference Documents

Edgar Fouche (middle) in Basic Training - 1967

Det-3, AFFTC (Detachment 3 - Air Force Flight Test Center) Document

On Feb 4, 2011 Ed called me on skype and we had the following coversation where Ed made some peculiar comments about needing a filter to remove evidence of document tampering:

Edgar Fouche's First Disclosure of AFFTC Det-3 Document

On Feb 5, 2011 Ed sent me the first version of this document claiming that it showed he was assigned to ‘Det-3 AFFTC’ which is the organization at the ‘Air Force Flight Test Center’ responsible for operations at Area 51 Groom Air Base.

Here is a copy of that email from Ed Fouche, along with the ORIGINAL version of this document that was sent to me:

2 Days later Ed Send me another email saying he "FUCKED UP", admitting that he edited the document assuring me that this was the ONLY thing he edited. I did not think this was unusual as Ed had edited a lot of his other documents to hide things like his Social Security Number and whatnot... I did not think it was out of place at the time, and forgot all about it, until David Hilton began bringing up the issue of discrepancies in this particular document and I made the effort to go back through my emails and find all the original emails where Ed first sent me these documents to track down why there were 2 versions of this document and where each of them came from.

Finally almost 2 weeks later Ed sent me yet another "corrected" version of the document. This one was carefully polished to remove all the signs of editing seen in the other 2 documents. David Hilton analyzed this version and could not find any of the same tell-tale signs of photo-editing.

Through a careful analysis of these documents and these emails, it is clear that Ed admittedly edited parts of the document including the upper right corner date on the document (Aug 20 1979) this appears to have been stamped on with a 4-band date stamp. The other writing in the document is a lighter grey and appears perfectly aligned almost as if it were typed on using photoshop "typewriter" font rather than an authentic typewriter as would have been used back in 1979. The wording also sounds like it was written by Ed Fouche, and the word "cryptological" is also out of alignment in one of the sentences.

Notice the Det-3, AFFTC (Detachment 3 – Air Force Flight Test Center) which is the group at Edwards AFB which controls all new Black TS R&D and FOT&E at Area 51 – Groom Air Base). AF Form 77a.

Ed claimed that for 12+ years, he worked at Area 51 while stationed at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas. Yet the only dates he can provide are from 76-79. In the summer of 79 he says he worked at Groom AB and DARC (Defense Advanced Research Center) right before his assignment to Kadena AFB, Okinawa Japan.” But, Why? he was taken away from Area 51 and moved to Japan is anybody's guess...

1968 - OJT Training (On the Job Training)

This is Ed Fouche's OJT Training (On the Job Training) For his "five level upgrade"

1970 - Training Certificate: Solid State Devices

Filename: TR-FTD Solid State Devices-1970
In the late 60s and early 70s we rapidly transitioned from tube devices to solid state devices on more modern aircraft’s avionics systems like the F-111s at the time and the AGE and AIS (Avionics Intermediate Shops) and the Automatic and Manual Test Equipment.

You get very basic soldering training at your basic ‘3’ level technical school.

After you arrive to your first Avionics or other type electronics shop you get further advanced soldering techniques at the local FTD (Field Training Detachment) for your ‘5’ level upgrade training.

The last (NASA training course) soldering training I had as a SSgt ‘7’ level, was for repairing multilevel circuit cards with surface mounted solid state devices on them. Some of the training included how to go into a molded electronic modules and cut away the resin to replace components.

1974 - Integrated Avionics Component Technicians Course - McDonnell Aircraft Corporation

According to Edgar Fouche:

When I arrived at Edwards AFB - 6515 TSS - AFFTC, I was assigned to the F-15 R&D and FOT&E Program. The elite few of us (CADRE) AFFTC and TAC went TDY (Tempory Duty) to the Mac-Air facility in St. Charles, Missouri for lenghty training on the AIS (Avionics Intermediate Shops) Manual, Automatic, and ECM equipment.
McDonnell Aircraft Corporation - Certificate of training - F-15 Eagle Integrated Avionics Component Technicians Course, Feb 1974. The CNI Test Station handled testing, alignment, and calibration of all the Communications, Navigation, and IFF for the Eagle. These LRUs (Line Replacable Units) were removed by flightline avionics experts who worked directly on the aircraft in hangers and on the flightline. They did periodic tests and if a pilot or co-pilot had a problem with ANY of functioning Avionics systems, they would write up the error or problem in the specific aircraft log books. If a failure was actually detected and verified by the crew chief or the flight line technicians they sent the unit into the Avionics Intermediate Repair (AIS) shops. We'd take the unit and hook it up to either manual, automatic, or ECM (TEWS-TITE) test stations. Then we would run tests on these LRUs (which were called UUT - Unit Under Test while in the AIS) and perfom repair, down to the component level in many cases, and alignment and calibration as needed.

These ATE or AIS test stations were 6 feet tall by 2 feet wide, and there were multiple bays of them filled with their own test equipment, calibration equipment, frequency counters, ossilliscopes, DVMs, and other built in equipment for unique testing. One tall rack was called a bay; from four to seven bays were attached side by side with external cableing depending on the configuration needed to test the myriad LRUs from the flightline. Each bay had multiple racks of switching, routing, test points A removable slied out racks; like a frequency counter and these removable drawers in the bays were called a TRUs (Tester Replacable Units).

It's interesting to note the perfect reports Ed Fouche received and read through to comments from his Commanding Officers who wrote and signed off on the reports speaking very highly of Ed's Performance.

Did Ed Write these himself or something?

The first signing officer on this report is Squadron Leader Robert C. Owen (RAF - Royal Air Force)
You can find a copy of a USAF document authored by (THE OTHER) Col. Robert C. Owen Here

(at least I don't think they are the same person... They could be... I haven't looked deeply enough into it)

Col. (Ret.) Robert A. Stier can be founded listed on This USAF Donor Report Document on page 16/37 left hand column in the section $500-$999
Col. (Ret.) Robert A. Stier is also the author of this 1977 Master's Thesis on An Investigation into the Nature of Aircraft Supportability in the CILC Environment

MAJOR GENERAL JOHN J. DORAN JR. was Ed Fouche's Boss when he worked as SAP Liaison to Industry as indicated in the above reports.
Here is a link to the AirForce's Biography on the signing officer MAJOR GENERAL JOHN J. DORAN JR.

1993 - Performance Evaluation and Development Plan

CEA - Computer Engineering Associates (Hauppauge, NY) - Now Possibly Hauppauge Computer Works???
RFTLTS - Radio Frequency Line Test System

If you notice this document is signed off by Col. Barry MacKean who you can look up is an SR-71 Pilot.
Here is a listeing of SR-71 Pilots and you will notice that Barry MacKean is listed #341
Col. Barry Mackean and his wife who is also a Retired Col. and former military doctor are now both retired in the Pheonix/Scottsdale area of Arizona.

Col. Barry Mackean (an SR-71 pilot) was the DOD Contractor, site manager for CEA. Ed Fouche was a Senior Program Manager under Col. Barry MacKean.
Here is a link to a source which shows that Col. Barry McKean (an SR-71 pilot) was indeed assigned to Kadena AFB, Okinawa Japan, at the SAME time as Edgar Fouche.


1983 July - ATC Associates Degree Avionics

1983 May - Command NCO Acad
