Cecil B. (Scott) Jones
Dr. Jones is founder and president of the Peace and
Emergency Action Coalition for Earth. The principal
function of P.E.A.C.E. is to oversee the development of
the global Center for Sustainable Peace and Development
system. Previous to this he was co-founder and president
of the Human Potential Foundation. This was established
in 1989, and conducted research into all conditions of
humankind: physiological, psychological and spiritual,
to assist the individual to achieve the highest levels
of human potential in body, mind and spirit in order to
compete and cooperate at personal excellence throughout
life. Prior to this position he was Special Assistant to
Senator Claiborne Pell from January 1985 until March
1991. Retiring as a Commander in the U.S. Navy,
approximately half of his thirty-year naval career was
spent in intelligence service overseas and in the United
States. In post-navy careers he has taught at the
university level and worked in the private sector
research and development community involved in U.S.
government sponsored projects for the Defense Nuclear
Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, U.S. Army
Intelligence and Security Command, and other
As Assistant Naval Attaché and Naval Air Attaché to New
Delhi, India and Katmandu, Nepal from January 1965 to
June 1967, he was involved in intelligence collection
and provided intelligence support to defense attachés
throughout Southeast Asia, the Middle East and North
Africa. This tour was followed by assignment to the
Naval Scientific and Technical Intelligence Center
where, as Head of the Missiles, Ordnance, and
Astronautics Division, he directed the production of
technical intelligence reports for the Navy and Defense
Intelligence Agency at all classification levels. During
this period he was Chairman of the Naval Missile Group,
an interagency group that supported the Guided Missile
and Astronautic Intelligence Committee. As Chief of the
Navy’s Intelligence Anti-Ship Missile Task Force, he
directed the effort that provided intelligence support
for a critical anti-ship missile defense research and
development effort. During this time he was a briefer to
the President’s Scientific Advisory Committee, and
testified before House and Senate committees and
sub-committees of the Armed Services on technical naval
Other intelligence assignments include three years as
Chief of the Targets Development Branch in the
Intelligence Directorate of Headquarters, U.S. European
Command, and in intelligence related assignment in the
National Military Command System Support Center.
Dr. Jones managed the Nuclear Test Personnel Review
program under contract to the Defense Nuclear Agency.
This program quantified the degree of radiological
hazard incurred by Department of Defense personnel
involved in atmospheric nuclear testing between 1946 and
1962. Extensive document search and retrieval from a
large number of libraries, archives and record centers
was involved. The recovered information and technical
data was synthesized and converted into histories
written for the layperson of each nuclear test
He participated in contracts with the Defense
Intelligence Agency (DIA) in a project instructing
analysts in quantitative methodologies and in
development of self-paced learning modules on various
methodologies including Event Sequence Network Analysis
and Interpretative Structural Modeling. Also for the DIA
he was involved in the transfer of advanced quantitative
methodological software technology from the Defense
Advanced Research Projects Agency to DIA workspaces. For
the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command he
participated in systems design for increasing ADP
Of particular significance for the establishment of the
global network of regional Centers for Sustainable Peace
and Development, was an assignment as Chief, Procedures
Branch, Data Division, National Military Command System
Support Center (NMCSSC) February 1961 to August 1963. In
this assignment he directed and managed activities
concerned with the research, analysis, collection, and
evaluation of all operational inputs to NMCSSC systems
and with the system design of a computer model for
depicting the Status of Forces and the Monitoring of
Operational Plans (SOFMOP). Additionally he designed and
then developed the database in support of this system.
The principal operational plan monitored by SOFMOP was
the Single Integrated Operational Plan (SIOP). The SIOP
was the U.S. strategic nuclear attack plan against the
Soviet Union, the Warsaw Pact, and the Peoples Republic
of China. In order to war game the SIOP, he then was
assigned to research and build a database of real U.S.
target counterparts to the SIOP target database. This
database was used in gaming by a Red Single Integrated
Operational Plan (RSIOP). The target category list was
extensive, e.g., command and control, industries,
communications, transportation, military establishments,
ports and cities, etc. His final assignment following
the success of the SOFMOP system and the RISOP database
development was to assist in the design of the Technical
Development Plan for the National Military Command
In a subsequent assignment, 1970-1972, to the
Intelligence Directorate of the U.S. European Command (EUCOM),
he was responsible for another complex computer system
design. Based upon a target category weighting system he
designed, this program selected potential tactical
nuclear targets in countries of EUCOM interest, but not
covered by NATO’s tactical nuclear war plan. All
categories from the Target Data Inventory (TDI) were
A South Asia area specialist, he has traveled
extensively throughout the region. His dissertation was,

He has led research into applied anomalous phenomena.
Networking with the parapsychological community, he has
worked throughout the executive branch to address issues
of government support for basic parapsychological
research, and to consider implications and application
of these phenomena.
In 1985, he founded and was president of the Center for
Applied Anomalous Phenomena. This non-profit educational
and scientific research organization was chartered to
conduct research and analysis of anomalous phenomena,
their implications and applications. Anomalous phenomena
include exceptional human capabilities. This Center was
transferred into the Human Potential Foundation.
In 1989, he and Senator Claiborne Pell co-founded the
Human Potential Foundation that was involved in a number
of research projects. These included a joint research
effort with the Chinese Academy of Somatic Science in
Beijing, in accelerated bone healing using qi gong; a
sponsored symposium conducted by Russian medical
scientists on psychoanalytical and psychocorrection
computer technologies; a survey of attitudes of medical
professionals toward death and the dying process and how
these are translated into decisions about treatment of
critical and terminal patients; the translation from
Chinese of the book: Collected Works on Qi Gong Science.
Under the Center for Interspecies Communications, the
Foundation conducted Projects Neptune Helper I and II,
dolphin research with Atlantic Bottlenose and Spotted
A major two-year program funded by Mr. Laurance
Rockefeller began with meetings in the Clinton White
House to encourage the administration to review the
policy it inherited from previous administrations
concerning secrecy about extraterrestrial contact with
earth, and change the policy to more openness. The
president discovered that he was not cleared for that
program. Work with Mr. Rockefeller was completed with an
international conference, When Cosmic Cultures Meet, in
Washington, D.C. in May 1995. At the conference a wide
spectrum of academic disciplines and interests assessed
the implications, preparations and responses for the
time when there is no ambiguity about the understanding
that higher intelligences from cosmic cultures are
In November 1998, the Human Potential Foundation was
dissolved and its principal undertaking, a global peace
initiative, transferred to the newly established Peace
and Emergency Action Coalition for Earth, Inc.
While in Germany on navy assignment, Dr. Jones taught
political science in the University of Maryland overseas
program at several Army posts from 1970 to 1972. His
terminal naval assignment was at the University of
Kansas as Associate Professor of Naval Science, 1973 to
1975. During this time he also taught undergraduate and
graduate courses in the Department of Political Science.
Retiring from the navy in 1975, he took a fulltime
teaching position in political science at Casper College
and the University of Wyoming at Casper from 1975 until
1978. In October 2000, he was a quest lecturer in the
Peace Studies Program at the University of Missouri,

Current P.E.A.C.E. Inc Programs
The principal program of P.E.A.C.E. Inc is the
establishment of a global system of university-based
Centers for Sustainable Peace and Development. Over
seven years of planning and consultation with academic,
political, spiritual, military, intelligence and
business leaders has lead to the current system design.
In November 2002, the University of Jordan was the first
school to adopt the Sustainable Peace and Development (SPD)
program. Subsequently, Makerere University in Uganda,
Dar es Salaam University, and the University of Missouri
have become SPD hosts. In 2006, Plan C was added to the
SPD program. It is designed to recruit global
universities and Think Tanks to start a dialogue on the
consequences to peace, stability and growth when full
disclosure of ET/Earth contact is made.
A second program is a recommendation made to President
Obama to establish a cabinet level Peace Advisor
position, and to encourage his global counterparts to do
A third program is draft legislation for a federally
funded international scholarship program to establish a
Professional Peaceworker Corps.
A fourth program is a proposed Constitutional amendment
that would additionally designate the President “the
principal Peace Maker of the United States.” This would
provide a legal basis for the institutionalization of
peace in the United States by the establishment of a
Department of Peace.
