Project HAARP: Overview

The Pentagon's provocative plan to superheat the earth's ionosphere The HAARP phased-array transmitter zaps the earth's ionosphere with high-frequency radio waves. In an Arctic compound 200 miles east of Anchorage, Alaska, the Pentagon has erected a powerful transmitter designed to beam more than a gigawatt of energy into the upper reaches of the atmosphere. Known as Project HAARP (High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program), the $30 million experiment involves the world's largest "ionospheric heater," a prototype device designed to zap the skies hundreds of miles above the earth with high-frequency radio waves. Why irradiate the charged particles of the ionosphere (which when energized by natural processes make up the lovely and famous phenomenon known as the Northern Lights)? According to the U.S. Navy and Air Force, co-sponsors of the project, "to observe the complex natural variations of Alaska's ionosphere." That, says the Pentagon, and also to develop new forms of communications and surveillance technologies that will enable the military to send signals to nuclear submarines and to peer deep underground. 60 Greatest Conspiracies first reported on HAARP more than a year ago. Since then, inquiring Internauts have blamed the peculiar project for everything from UFO activity to major power outages in the Western United States, to, most recently, the downing of TWA Flight 800. (The Pentagon maintains that the HAARP array has been inactive since late last year.) Some have dubbed it the "Pentagon's doomsday death ray." Though many of these theories are, well, creatively amplified, an assortment of more grounded critics--environmentalists, Native Americans and Alaskan citizens among them--argue that the military does indeed have Strangelovian plans for this unusual hardware, applications ranging from "Star Wars" missile defense schemes to weather modification plots and perhaps even mind control experiments. The HAARP complex is situated within a 23-acre lot in a relatively isolated region near the town of Gakona. When the final phase of the project was completed in 1997, the military had erected 180 towers, 72 feet in height, forming a "highpower, high frequency phased array radio transmitter" capable of beaming in the 2.5-10 megahertz frequency range, at more than 3 gigawatts of power (3 billion watts). HAARP Hyperlinks -- Warm, Fuzzy HAARP The U.S. Navy's soothing, feel-good PR Web site devoted to HAARP reassures us that the project is entirely benign. Angels Don't Play This HAARP Excerpts from the book that posits a connection between the work of suppressed scientist Nikola Tesla and Project HAARP. Alternative HAARP Page Overview of facts and speculation swirling around the Gakona, Alaska, project. The Eastlund-ARCO Patent Outlines Eastlund's vision for a HAARP-like project drawing upon the inspiration of Nikola Tesla.

Navy and Air Force PR (posted on the official HAARP World Wide Web Internet site. Eastlund's invention would heat plumes of charged particles in the ionosphere. downplays both the environmental impacts of the project and purported offensive uses of the technology. considered by HAARP critics to be the "smoking raygun.S. Put another way. deflection. "Weather modification. Not surprisingly. HAARP "will be used to introduce a small. what is used to disrupt another's communications can be employed by one knowledgeable of this invention as a communications network at the same time"." If Eastlund's brainchild sounds like a recipe for that onetime Cold War panacea. Inc.. it's probably no coincidence. or confusion" by lifting large regions of the atmosphere "to an unexpectedly high altitude so that missiles encounter unexpected and unplanned drag forces with resultant destruction or deflection of same. According to the patent. but [also] take advantage of one or more such beams to carry out a communications network at the same time. "pick up communication signals of others for intelligence purposes". one of those patents was classified by the Navy for several years during the 1980s. known amount of energy into a specific ionospheric layer" anywhere from several miles to several tens of miles in radius. Eastlund was just warming up. The APTI/Eastlund patent was filed during the final days of the Reagan administration. (APTI). In the patent-subsequently published on the Internet by foes of HAARP--Eastlund describes a fantastic offensive and defensive weapon that would do any megalomaniacal James Bond super villain proud. But Eastlund's blue-sky vision went far beyond the usual Star Wars prescriptions of the day and suggested even more unusual uses for his patented ionospheric heater. Patent number 4.686. In fact.. "is possible by. interfere with third-party communications.605. selectively "disrupt microwave transmissions of satellites" and "cause interference with or even total disruption of communications over a large portion of the earth. altering upper atmospheric wind patterns or altering solar absorption patterns by .According to the Navy and Air Force. the ARCO subsidiary contracted to build HAARP. The key document in the bunch is U. However." the patent states." so to speak. when plans for high-tech missile defense systems were still all the rage. the physicist's "method and apparatus for altering a region in the earth's atmosphere" would also: "cause confusion of or interference with or even complete disruption of guidance systems employed by even the most sophisticated of airplanes and missiles". an effort to combat the bad press the project has generated). Held by ARCO Power Technologies. a Texas physicist. a series of patents owned by the defense contractor managing the HAARP project suggests that the Pentagon might indeed have more ambitious designs. making it possible to.. this patent describes an ionospheric heater very similar to the HAARP heater invented by Bernard J. for starters. "not only. facilitate "missile or aircraft destruction. the Strategic Defense Initiative (AKA "Star Wars").. Per the patent text. Eastlund." But like his hopped up ions.

and his later pronouncements (he vowed that he had developed a technology that could split the earth asunder) have left him straddling that familiar historical territory where genius meets crackpot." Quoting Tesla. fringe science and conspiracy theory have made Tesla something of a patron saint. What's more. and could be generated ." APTI also rates Alaska as an ideal location given its close proximity to an ample source of fuel to power the project: the vast reserves of natural gas in the North Slope region--reserves owned by APTI parent company ARCO. Whenever. Eastlund also contradicts the official military line. "stands ready to divulge to the United States Government the secret of his 'teleforce. During the summer of 1994. the Times story continues: "This new type of force. airplane motors would be melted at a distance of 250 miles. Two of the sources documented by Eastlund are New York Times articles from 1915 and 1940 profiling Nikola Tesla. references to governmentsuppressed "Tesla Technology" are sure to follow. reports that Tesla. Eastlund suggested that "The HAARP project obviously looks a lot like the first step" toward the designs outlined in his patents. an artificially heated could focus a "vast amount of sunlight on selected portions of the earth. a defense contractor known for counter-surveillance projects. APTI. in turn. among a host of other firsts. But several key details suggest otherwise. is currently owned by Raytheon. The first New York Times article. would operate through a beam one hundred-millionth of a square centimeter in diameter. Tesla was a major inspiration for Eastlund ionospheric heater. continues to manage the HAARP project. talk radio buzz or Internet discussion turns to alleged government experiments to cause earthquakes or modify weather." HAARP officials deny any link to Eastlund's patents or plans. developed hundreds of patents during his lifetime. Judging from the APTI patent. Eastlund's patent really trips into conspiratorial territory in its "References Cited" section. Not surprisingly.. a brilliant inventor and contemporary of Edison. he said. 1940. Tesla.. E-Systems.constructing one or more plumes of particles which will act as a lens or focusing device. one of the world's largest defense contractors and maker of the SCUD-busting Patriot missile. and is often credited with developing radio before Marconi. then 84 years old. Of course. holder of the Eastlund patents. And in the May/June 1994 issue of Microwave News. dated September 22. Tesla said. one of the APTI/Eastlund patents singles out Alaska as the ideal site for a highfrequency ionospheric heater because "magnetic field lines.' with which." As a result. mainstream science has never fully acknowledged Tesla's contributions. All of which suggests that more than just simple atmospheric science is going on in the HAARP compound. Mr. ARCO sold APTI to E-Systems. For starters. a giant in the annals of Conspiratorial History. intersect the earth in Alaska. which extend to desirable altitudes for this invention. so that an invisible Chinese Wall of Defense would be built around the country. He told National Public Radio that a secret military project to develop his work was launched during the late 1980s.

1915. there's a good chance it is a duck. Tesla's--ideas seriously. . dated December 8." . and by extension the overlap between Tesla and HAARP technology is downright intriguing.from a special plant that would cost no more than $2. Eastlund seems to agree. both in war and peace. APTI and the Pentagon are taking Eastlund's--and by extension. As he told one journalist/conspiracy pathfinder: "HAARP is the perfect first step towards a plan like mine." The similarity of Tesla's ideas to Eastlund's invention are remarkable.The government will say it isn't so.. a transmitter that would "project electrical energy in any amount to any distance and apply it for innumerable purposes." The second New York Times story. but if it quacks like a duck and it looks like a duck.000 and would take only about three months to construct. Apparently..000. describes one of Tesla's more well-known patents.

That's because he invented most of the technology we depend on every day... to create "non-lethal" effects on huge areas of people. air and sea. UHF) Using this method. etc. VHF." So why don't you know about him? Because certain people don't want you thinking about free energy. So here's the significance of the "Earthquake Machine". loudspeakers and more. even today. which then causes the fault to give way? I'm not alone in believing this is entirely possible. Where ever this enormous vibration ends up it creates extremely low frequency (ELF) waves which travel down to the earth. then what would it take to vibrate an existing fault enough to cause it to give out? Well. HAARP is capable of extremely deep earth tomography: basically "x-raying" the earth. It's called HAARP. HAARP can do that. using this method. Wanna create an EMF blast to wipe out all electronics in an area? HAARP can do that. Wanna shoot a giant bolt of electricity at a target. causing a violent vibration. "Tesla's inventions and discoveries also formed the basis of modern robotics. How about an EMF blast that will kill all living creatures. but won't damage structures? Wanna put up a "missile shield" over your country? What else? Wanna send down some of the extensively researched psychoactive and biophysically active frequencies. of course. as well as by changing pressure levels in the upper atmosphere. HAARP can manipulate weather patters by heating land.. radio. HF. HAARP can do that. you're not sure who Tesla is. I think that technology has been around for a while now. but he beileved he could literally split the earth in two. or the "death ray". If a six pound pneumatic device can cause a large steel building to quake and an enormous bridge to vibrate rythmically and consistently throughout. my friends. The enormous amount of energy added to the ionosphere creates a tuned vibration which then is directed around the globe on the jetstreams. Tesla may have been a mad scientist..Tesla's Earthquake Machine . what if they tune it to resonate with the geological features of a fault line. It makes perfect sense. Well. Nikola Tesla is arguably the greatest inventive genius of the modern age. xray. Wanna know how to steer a hurricane? Heat the water along its path. the wireless transmission of electricity. most forms of wireless communications. It has a range of applications. all at once? Then you need HAARP. weather control. That is. Few of these breakthroughs are credited to the inventor.HAARP If you're like most people. . HAARP sends controlled and tuned bursts or streams of high frequency (HF) radio energy at Earth's ionosphere. (It can also send down LF. That much is not controversial. like alternating current electricity. It is apparent that many of Tesla's inventions and discoveries were developed far after his death and are still being developed and expanded upon today. radar. not the only thing HAARP can do.

. If you don't believe HAARP is capable of these things.That's why HAARP is so dangerous. Watch "Holes in Heaven: HAARP and the Advancement of Tesla technology". One of the best kept secrets of our time. It's no joke. do some research before you dismiss it.
