Chapter Eleven

The NO HAARP group really wasn't a group in the formal sense. The independent research efforts always flowed to the "library". This was a floating set of documents which grew to more than three hundred source items. The library was periodically copied and sent to trusted "compilers" across the globe, and was also moved from one person to the next depending on who was developing the most data and had the greatest need for the information at their finger tips at a given time.


It could be said that the NO HAARP members, each acting as their own independent collection points, were a living Internet. Each person could continue to operate even if some researchers dropped off the project.

The military presented a challenge to researchers in the way they handle information in weapon development projects. From the beginning of the development of the information until the writing of these words, the data on HAARP, gathered by the compilers, has continued to grow. We recognized that there would be additional information found even after the first printing of this book but it could be added later as the collection of facts had an urgency which required publication. We needed to begin to disclose the potentials of this new weapon system and the risks associated with it.

Getting information from the military presented a challenge because of the way they handle information in weapon development projects. The United States military and intelligence community work under a number of principles. These include "compartmentalization" and "need-to-know". Compartmentalization is the idea of taking a large multifaceted project and breaking it down into subparts which can be researched and developed independent of the others.


Through compartmentalization, the concept of need-to-know develops, where only the part that each individual needs to be aware of is relayed to that person. What these two concepts allow the military is "containment". A third principle in intelligence circles. An intelligence circle keeps the project going, but in a way which masks the overall (government) plan. In the case of the HAARP project, Hanscom Air Force Base runs the public effort on the program.


Kirtland Air Force Base (the home of high-tech weapons systems) runs the information distribution process, Maxwell Air Force Base develops doctrine and policy for non-lethal weapon systems and Brooks Air Force Base puts together research on the bio-effects of radiofrequency radiation. UCLA, Stanford University, Penn State, and the University of Alaska all work on the project. Lest we forget, there are also industry contributions by Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO) through ARCO Power Technologies Incorporated (APTI), their subsidiary.


E-Systems bought APTI and formed a new subsidiary called APTI. This company was then acquired by Raytheon Corporation in a huge buyout. 121 There are many other organizations connected to the project some of whom appear in the remaining chapters of this book.

121 The Wall Street Journal, "Raytheon to Acquire E-Systems For $64 a Share, or $2.3 Billion, Offer is 41% Premium Over Friday's Close; Rival Bid Is Unlikely", by Steven Lipin and Jeff Cole, page 1 column 2 and A3 column 1 and A16 column 1, Monday, April 3,1995.

The HAARP project is part of the larger work of Strategic Defense Initiative ("Star Wars") technologies, a program first brought forward during the Reagan Administration. We are also certain that many of those associated with this project are unaware of the other ways HAARP transmitters could be used. The scientists at work within the University of Alaska Fairbanks' Geophysical Institute are specialists and brilliant leaders in their fields.


However, their disciplines do not cross over into the biological sciences sufficiently to consider the effects of their work on living things, nor does their work consider the uses of radiofrequency radiation contemplated by the intelligence community and within the various agencies of the United States government.

Part three considers the risks to people if these "ionospheric heaters" are misused. It explores the use of radiofrequency for mind manipulation, as a weapon system as well as those DoD applications described in the HAARP records.

The information presented throughout this book, it is hoped, will stimulate people to approach their government projects with the same healthy skepticism demonstrated by the "guys in the bush" and all of the others who contributed to this research effort. The people whose stories were told in the first section of the book are scientists, researchers and very ordinary people who had the will to cause change in the world.

This part of the book is the work of the "compilers" in weaving together the tapestry of information developed over what has become years of effort on the part of many, This is the story behind the story of HAARP.
