Paul H. Smith, PhD, is a retired Major in the United States Army who served for seven years in the U.S. government’s remote viewing program at Fort Meade, Maryland. During 1984, he became one of only a handful of government personnel to be personally trained in coordinate remote viewing (CRV) by Ingo Swann.

Paul was the primary author of the program’s CRV training manual and served as theory instructor for new CRV trainees, as well as recruiting officer, unit security officer, and unit historian. He is credited with over a thousand training and operational remote viewing sessions during his time with the military unit at Fort Meade. He was transferred out of the program in 1990 to serve in Desert Storm with the 101st Airborne Division, and retired from the Army in 1996. 

Paul received his doctoral degree in philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin in 2009. He is president of Remote Viewing Instructional Services, Inc., a company offering remote viewing training and is the author and coproducer of the Learn Dowsing DVD set.
