HAARP is the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. According to the US Government, officially it is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska, and DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency). Its purpose is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance. These technologies are specifically aimed at improving communications with submarines by bouncing the communications off of the upper levels of our atmosphere. According to HAARP’s website, experiments are conducted which use electromagnetic frequencies to fire pulsed, directed energy beams in order to “temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere.” HAARP was supposedly shut down in 2014 after incurring over $250 million in taxpayer funded construction and operational costs.
The HAARP Research Station is located in a sub-artic facility owned by the US Air Force near Gakona Alaska. The HAARP system uses a high-power radio frequency transmitter facility operating in the high frequency band. It is used to temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere.
HAARP has been claimed to do many things. Some people call it a weather control device, some say it is a mind control device. It has been blamed for everything from earthquakes, and hurricanes, to the destruction of the Space Shuttle Columbia and the 1996 crash of TWA flight 800.
“It isn’t just conspiracy theorists who are concerned about HAARP. The European Union called the project a global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks. Despite those concerns, officials at HAARP insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio science research facility.”
- Quote from a TV documentary on HAARP by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).
Despite this, the European agency EISCAT (European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Association) operates the Ramfjordmoen facility (near Tromsø, Norway) that also operates an ionospheric heater facility, similar to HAARP.
