H. A. A. R. P. (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program)
The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Project (HAARP) may seem like a worthless research project when first viewed from a limited viewpoint. However, when you get into more detail about this project you will see just how secret and covert it really is. Since the start of HAARP many people have had questions go unanswered and this lack of information is just another example of how projects are kept quiet. This is why we must have a committee to review the uses of the project and the dangers it could cause. There are numerous natural disasters that the use of this project could have caused; however without the reviews the information may never be released and the world may never know the truth about HAARP.
What is HAARP? The High frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is a program focused on the study of upper atmospheric and solar-terrestrial physics and Radio Science. The HAARP program operates a major Arctic ionosphere research facility on an Air Force owned site near Gakona, Alaska. Principal instruments installed at the HAARP Research Station include a high power, high-frequency (HF) phased array radio transmitter (known as the Ionosphere Research Instrument (IRI), used to stimulate small, well-defined volumes of ionosphere, and a large and diversified suite of modern geophysical research instruments including an HF ionosonde, ELF and VLF receivers, magnetometers, riometers, a UHF diagnostic radar and optical and infrared spectrometers and cameras which are used to observe the complex natural variations of Alaska's ionosphere as well as to detect artificial effects produced by the IRI. Future plans include completion of the UHF radar to allow measurement of electron densities, electron and ion temperatures, and Doppler velocities in the stimulated region and in the natural ionosphere using incoherent scatter techniques. (Technical Information about HAARP, 2011)
HAARP started construction in early 1990’s covering 23 acres near the town of Gakona, Alaska. The main contractor for the facility was BAE Systems, Advanced Technology (BAE/AT). The finished product consisted of 180 antenna towers standing 72 feet to form a high powered, high frequency phased array radio transmitter. This transmitter is capable of producing 3 million watts of power. This ionospheric research instrument (IRI), a high powered transmitter will be used to temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere for scientific study (HAARP Fact Sheet, 2011). This could be much easier described as an ionosphere heater, an array of antennas which are used for heating the uppermost part of the atmosphere.
Although the construction was started in the early 1990’s the patents for this project started getting acquired much earlier. A company named ARCO as subsidiary of APTI was given the first patent for HAARP-like technology on 11 August 1987; this was the first of dozens the company would take out...
