HAARP can do the following:
- radiation belt remediation
- create an “Artifical Ionospheric Mirror” (AIM)
- create ELF waves that are heard worldwide
- create plasma clouds
- create airglow using HF radio waves and/or rocket exhaust plumes
- create holes in the ionosphere
- modifies the magnetic properties of our planet to probe underground structures

The Abridged History of Magnetospheric Modification
Project Argus‘s 1958 high altitude nuclear explosion (DARPA sponsored project) created artificial radiation belts, which confirmed the Christofilos effect. This mechanism was again confirmed when the 1963 Starfish Prime explosion created artificial radiation belts that “would last a hundred years before the ionosphere returned to normal.” Even though these radiation belts were recognized in the 1960′s, NASA’s Van Allen Probes Reveal Previously Undetected Radiation Belt Around Earth in 2013.

“The Starfish Prime radiation belt had, by far, the greatest intensity and duration of any of the artificial radiation belts, and it could take many hundreds of years for the Van Allen Belts to restabilise at their normal levels.” Source
Limited Test Ban Treaty
The world’s governments realized that things were quickly getting our of hand, and promptly banned all upper atmospheric nuclear explosions. Only months later, to continue their studies of using the ionosphere missile shield, experiments began using chemical releases in the ionosphere instead of nuclear explosions.
Aluminum exhaust released from rockets, like the Atlas, Saturn, and even the Space Shuttle’s OMS pods cause airglow and tear holes in the ionosphere, which was studied by ground-based radio-frequency heating facilities. Please read a more lengthy article by Rosalie Bertell on this fascinating period.
Each time a space shuttle is launched, the solid rocket boosters release 240 tons of HCl gas, 26 tons of chlorine gas, 7 tons of nitrogen dioxide gas, and 304 tons of aluminum oxide into the atmosphere. The resulting hydrochloric acid dissolves eight inches of concrete on the launch pad, raises the concentration of hydrochloric acid in nearby lakes to 3 M, produces massive fish kills in the ocean, and destroys the paint on cars. Leading chemists believe that the HCl is a major contributor to the holes in the ozone layer.
During Project West Ford, 480,000,000 copper dipole antennas were launched into orbit, which was a test carried out by Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Lincoln Laboratory on behalf of the United States Military in 1961 and 1963 to create an artificial ionosphere above the Earth. This was done to solve a major weakness that had been identified in US military communications. After that came barium, lithium, and sulfur hexaflouride releases from rockets and satellites. The CRRES satellite released chemicals into the ionosphere which were heated by the Arecibo facility.
The Birth of HAARP
The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is currently the world’s premiere ionospheric modification facility, operating a 3-30 MHz antenna array with a 5.1 gigawatt effective radiated power. Here is the short history of how and why it was made:
- Stanford Star Lab gave a proposal for the future of ionospheric modification. 1987
- ARCO and APTI proposed an Artificial Ionospheric Mirror. 1990
- Electromagnetic Interference Impact of the Proposed Emitters for the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program 1993
- The Air Force Geophysics Lab (now AFRL) and the Office of Naval Research cooked up HAARP at their Joint Services Program. 1999
- HAARP will also be used to search for nukes underground. See: Imaging of Underground Structure Using HAARP 1999
- is part of DARPA’s Project NIMBUS campaign BRIOCHE.
Enter Star Wars SDI
But hopes that the Christofilos effect would provide a defensive shield against Soviet missiles faded quickly. The electron belts created by the experiments were too weak and transitory to do much damage to enemy missiles that would pass through them at thousands of miles per hour. Christofilos, dubbed “the Crazy Greek” by the press, continued to explore ideas (some of which are still classified) until his death in 1972.
Fifty years after Argus, however, the Crazy Greek doesn’t seem quite so crazy. Space-based nuclear tests in the early 1960s proved that the Christofilos effect could disable satellites. Now that near-Earth space harbors hundreds of satellites of critical economic and military importance, strategists are considering the Christofilos effect anew. Even a technologically humble rogue state could launch a missile and detonate a low-yield nuke high over its territory, creating a Christofilos effect that would cripple the satellites of its more sophisticated rivals.

How it works
Sounding rockets with beam generators are launched from Poker Flat Research Range, which burn a hole in the ionosphere. Electrons race down the newly formed hole, and HAARP‘s Ionospheric Research Instrument heats the area inside the hole. A second RF source, like the MUIR, AMISR (RISR-N, RISR-C, and PFISR), HIPAS, or SuperDARN, is used to study and/or reflect signals off of the “artificial ionospheric mirror“.
In fact, there are several rocket ranges and ionospheric heating facilities worldwide and HAARP is just the tip of a very large iceberg. With an ERP of greater than 100 gigawatts, the upcoming EISCAT 3D in Tromso, Norway should give HAARP a run for its money.

Control of the Energetic Proton Flux in the Inner Radiation Belt by Artificial Means 2009
“A similar analysis for the inner radiation belt indicates that broadband SAW in the 1–10 Hz frequency range … would reduce the trapped energetic proton flux … within 2 to 3 years. … such reduction can be achieved by injecting such waves from ground-based transmitters.”

Someday the U.S. military could drive a trailer to a spot just beyond insurgent fighting and, within minutes, reconfigure part of the atmosphere, blocking an enemy’s ability to receive satellite signals, even as U.S. troops are able to see into the area with radar.
