The Department of National Defence classified reports into one of two categories:

Category One:
Information that would suggest the type of phenomena associated with fireballs and meteorites

Category Two: Information that does not conform to the physical patterns usually associated with fireballs or meteorite activity.

Reports in Category One were sent to the National Research Council. Reports in Category Two were kept at the Department of National Defence to be investigated.
