Member of the Russian Federation of Space Exploration Scientific and
Technical Council, Anatoliy Ptushenko describes spaced-based energy
systems... that are "capable of driving millions of people crazy."
The first articles [give] an in-depth account written by a member of
the Russian Federation of Space Exploration Scientific and Technical
Council, Anatoliy Ptushenko.
"for the first time in our
press in Rabochaya Tribuna... psychotropic weapons... spaced-based
energy systems... that are 'capable of driving millions of people
crazy'... which started to be developed in the sixties."
The article continues with a discussion of space-based energy
systems and the need for the world community to establish an a
priori permanent, preventive monitoring of the development and
deployment of space-based energy systems.
He then describes the
demonstrators on the streets of Moscow,
"with banners saying 'stop
psychotronic weapons.' (Moscow Rabochaya Truibuna
"[P]eople at the time were most
interested in microwave systems.... However, the most important
thing was deemed to be the psychotropic effect created by these
systems under certain conditions. That was why they were
officially called psychotropic rather than psychotronic weapons.
It turned out that it was all a matter of frequency...
"Generally speaking, most readers are probably familiar with
superhigh frequency radiation: Few people with a head cold or a
sprain have not sat in a clinic between the two black plates of
a 'UHF generator.' There are frequencies that are beneficial to
people. But naturally there are also those which are hazardous.
At certain frequencies (I think that only professionals are
interested in knowing precisely which ones) microwave radiation
creates that very same psychotropic effect. That is, it has a
direct physical effect on the human brain."
"So a microwave system can easily be tuned into a psychotropic
weapon - formidable in that it has a direct effect on the human
brain... just by retuning the generator."
"The terrible danger of psychotropic
weapons is the possibility of their simultaneously and
unequivocally affecting large masses of people over huge areas."
"Moskovskiye Novosti, The Komsomolka,
Golos, Moskovskiy, Komsomolets, and many other papers have been
frantic to tell us all about 'psychotronic' weapons (as if they
had conspired!)... [T]hey are talking about something completely
different: about hypnosis, 'verbal zombification,' the effect of
ultrasound signals on the human subconscious (on the lines of
The subject of the articles is always
associated with an acoustic address system involving
suggestions, for instance, i.e. verbal (oral) pressure on a
person - albeit using inaudible ultrasonic frequencies."
Ptushenko then mentions Dr. Smirnov, the
Russian psychiatrist who is famous for his
mind control equipment.
"Smirnov has it that 'psychotronics'
are easily blocked... But these childish tricks will not work
with psychotropic weapons. It resembles the effect of a
psychotropic drug, which is why the weapons were called
psychotropic: An imbalance occurs, a fundamental change in a
person's psyche, he loses self-control and becomes easily led,
and his mind moves from the real world to a world of
Ptushenko then distinguishes
psychotropic drugs from psychotropic weapons.
"But there are fundamental
differences between them. All pharmaceutical psychotropics are
temporary-acting. While microwave radiation is variable: It can
affect a person (or an Army) temporarily or possibly forever. It
is all determined by the mix of frequency and the power of the
radiation. These systems were called "psychotropic weapons" in
official secret documents 30 years ago. It was these systems
that we began to appreciate in the sixties."
Ptusenko ends the article with a
"They may quite well have actually
been tested. It was not for nothing that at that time some
graduates of the Moscow State University Biology Faculty were
sent to Ministry of Radioeelctronics Research Institutes... So
let us leave the notorious science of psychotronics to the
conscience of psychiatrists, psychics, and hypnotists.
Nevertheless, faced with such a terrible danger as psychotropic
weapons (and other kinds of space-based weapons), it is our duty
to ensure that the development and operation of space based
solar energy system receive popular and above all mass media
The above article describes the
tremendous amount of information on psychotronics in Russian
newspapers and agrees with the concerns of Lopatin and Tsygankov and
the need to control these weapons.
Ptushenko questions the
psychotronic weapons school of thought and whether hypnosis will
work on unwilling subjects. Hypnosis does work on unwilling subjects
[see Dr. Scheflin's book
Mind Manipulators (1978) and Dr. Colin
Bluebird (2000). Both books document government involvement in
hypnosis research and disinformation surrounding this issue.]
Ptushenko [also] questions the information available on psychotropic
weapons [and] claims concerning,
"hypnosis, 'verbal zombification,'
the effect of ultrasound signals on the human subconscious..."
Ptushenko states emphatically that
"do not enable the individual human
mind to be controlled in a precise and purposeful way. They
simply 'jam' any internal connections responsible for a person's
self-control, and he becomes easily controllable 'according to
mob law' in line with commands form a space-based station. He
can be controlled either from earth or from a command center
lost in space."
These are considerable statements coming
from a prominent space expert. Ptushenko has obviously given the
matter serious consideration and believes that there are terrible
dangers from psychotropic weapons and public debate is necessary.
Further research is needed.

In the U.S., the Learning Channel TV program "War 2020" (produced by
Beyond Productions in 1998) is a good representation of information
warfare. The program included Dr. Persinger of Canada's Laurentian
University and his discussion on magnetic signals and how signals
could be beamed from television, microwave and telephone towers and
systems to targeted populations for mind control purposes.
The program narrator stated,

Mind control weapons are categorized as
information and nonlethal weapons, according to these sources. This
article describes space weapons, including targeting of populations
anywhere in the world with behavior control.
The article supplies details to prove that behavior control weapons
are feasible, that the U.S. is concentrating research in this area
and warns about possible American information and space warfare.

Article by Major General Valeriy Menshikov, doctor of technical
sciences, and Colonel Boris Rodionov
Along with ordinary wars, states have waged "information wars"
since time immemorial, and are doing so now. But while
previously they were given only an auxiliary role, lately their
significance has grown immeasurably, and new technologies are
"guilty" of this.
Armeyskiy Sbornik regularly publishes articles on this topic.
Today leading specialists of the RF
Armed Forces tell about achievements in this area.
low-altitude global satellite communications system is of
special interest. It will have 15 times more satellites than
[the] Iridium - 840. With other conditions being equal, the
low orbit of small, lightweight craft (no more than 700 km)
permits increasing the power of their radio emission on the
Earth's surface 2,500 times or more and performing a wide
range of military missions.
"It is unprecedented: the numerical size of the Iridium
orbital grouping enables as a minimum simultaneously
irradiating any point on Earth from two spacecraft. This
provides double redundancy and increased reliability of
communications, as for military systems. The band of
radio-frequency emissions (20-30 GHz) also has not been used
previously in commercial communications."
"An analysis of the enumerated features indicates that the
Teledesic system can be used for irradiating ground, sea and
airborne facilities with high-power modulated emissions,
which in various automated control systems permits
initiating computer viruses such as 'sleepers,' triggered by
a special signal. This can become a real threat to security
for countries whose command and control systems are oriented
on foreign equipment.
"A psychophysical effect on people also is possible for the
purpose of altering their behavior and even controlling the
social aims of regional or even global societies. Fantasy?
But the fact is that today the United States is spending as
much money on developing psychophysical weapons as on the
most complex space programs, and such a correlation cannot
"The Americans began such research back in the prewar period
and continued it after the war within the scope of programs
MK-Ultra mind control, MC-Delta (remote alteration
of human behavior) and also Bluebeard and Artichoke.
"Such an effect also is possible via the mass media by
creating special audio signals in music hits, key video
images in television programs and so on.
"The Teledesic space system also can be used for this same
purpose. Suffice it to recall numerous statements to courts
by U.S. citizens that cellular communications is the cause
of various ailments, including brain cancer. U.S. scientists
from the National Cancer Institute and the Food and Drug
Administration recommended limiting use of such
communications systems. Similar effects also are possible
from the new systems. True, for this the output of its
satellites has to be increased a thousand times more that
what was announced, but technically it is fully feasible."
"Thus, the new space systems are potentially dangerous from
the aspect of unfolding a wide-scale 'information war' and
even creating a global systems for controlling people's
behavior in any region, city or locality, including one's
own. A country possessing them will gain an enormous
