Remote Viewing Instructional Services
True skepticism does not begin by being anti-anything. The processes of open consideration and examination (i.e., research) will ultimately establish whether something exists or not. ~ Ingo Swann


Captain Skip Atwater was the founder of the US Army's remote viewing unit. Starting in 1977 with the program's first code name, "Gondola Wish" Atwater, working with another officer who had been assigned to assist him, recruited and trained the first remote viewers to be assigned to the unit. As the organization was renamed "Grill Flame," and later "Center Lane," Atwater continued to be the backbone of the unit, serving concurrently as training officer and operations officer. Many of the most successful operational techniques and transferable skills used throughout the duration of the project were developed by Atwater. After overseeing the transition of the unit from the Army to the Defense Intelligence Agency under the new code name "Sun Streak," Atwater continued to support operational innovation until his retirement from the Army in 1987. He went on to become the laboratory director of the Monroe Institute in Virginia, then became the Institues acting director after the death of Laurie Monroe, and finally president of the organization, where he currently still serves.
