ELECTROPAINTINGS IN THE SKY
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
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.
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
Kirtland Air Force Base (the home of
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.

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
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.
