HAARP stands for the High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. It is a research program aimed at studying the ionosphere, a part of the Earth’s upper atmosphere. It was run by the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Navy and was located in Gakona, Alaska.

HAARP used a high-power radio frequency transmitter to study the ionosphere and its effects on communication and navigation systems. The program generated controllable auroral electrojets to study the physical processes that occur in the ionosphere and their impact on communication and navigation systems.

The U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency started the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) as an ionospheric research initiative (DARPA). By BAE Advanced Technologies, it was both created and constructed. 

Analyzing the ionosphere and looking into the possibility of creating ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance were the original goals of the project. It has been run by the University of Alaska Fairbanks since 2015. The Ionospheric Research Equipment (IRI), a high-power radio frequency transmitter facility operating in the high frequency (HF) band, is the most noticeable instrument at HAARP. The IRI is employed to momentarily stimulate a constrained region that is ionized. 

2. Project Outline


The array of HAARP antennas

A 3.6 MW signal in the 2.810 MHz range of the HF band is directed into the ionosphere by the HAARP project. The signal might be continuous or pulsed. 

Instrumentation used in conjunction with the transmission, such as VHF and UHF radars, HF receivers, and optical cameras, can be used to analyse the effects of the transmission and any recovery period. 

The study of fundamental natural processes that take place in the ionosphere under the naturally occurring but considerably stronger influence of solar interaction will advance as a result, according to the HAARP team. HAARP also makes it possible to study the impact of the natural ionosphere on radio communications. Scientists will be able to create strategies to counteract these impacts in order to increase the performance or reliability of communication and navigation systems thanks to the insights gained at HAARP.

have a wide range of both military and commercial applications, including improving GPS navigational accuracy and advancing applications in underwater and subsurface research. 

Improved undersea connection techniques and the capacity to remotely sense and map the mineral richness of the terrestrial subsurface, and possibly underground complexes, of regions or countries, are just a few possible outcomes of this. 

According to one of the academics involved, the existing facility lacks the range to be used in areas like the Middle East, which is rich in oil, but the technology might be put on a transportable platform.

The Office of Naval Research initially provided funding for the project, which was jointly overseen by the ONR and Air Force Research Laboratory with a major contribution from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The University of Alaska Fairbanks, Stanford University, Penn State University (ARL), Boston College, UCLA, Clemson University, Dartmouth College, Cornell University, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Maryland, College Park, University of Massachusetts Amherst, MIT, Polytechnic Institute of New York University, Virginia Tech, and the United Nations were just a few of the US universities and educational institutions that contributed to the project’s development. 

Universities produced the project’s standards, and they continued to be heavily involved in the planning of subsequent research projects.

HAARP’s original management claimed that the project aimed for transparency and that all actions were recorded and made publicly available; this policy is still in place under the University of Alaska Fairbanks. 

Even international nationals and scientists without security credentials were frequently on location, which still exists today. Every year, HAARP holds an open house where any civilian is welcome to see the entire site. In addition, researchers from the U.S. Department of Defense research labs and American and foreign universities often publish the scientific findings of HAARP experiments in prestigious journals like Geophysical Research Letters and Journal of Geophysical Research.

3. The Primary Objective of HAARP is to conduct fundamental scientific research in the ionosphere, the uppermost region of the atmosphere. The ionosphere, which is essentially a transition between the atmosphere and the magnetosphere, is a region where the atmosphere is both thick enough to contain enough molecules to absorb X- and UV rays from the sun and thin enough to let those rays pass through. 

As a result, the ionosphere is made up of a rapid increase in free electron density that starts at 70 km, reaches a peak at 300 km, and then rapidly declines as the atmosphere completely vanishes by 1,000 km. HAARP can examine all of the major ionosphere layers through a variety of methods.

The ionosphere’s profile is extremely changeable and changes often across periods of minutes, hours, and days. Years and seasons. 

Near the Earth’s magnetic poles, where the earth’s magnetic field’s almost vertical alignment and intensity may produce natural phenomena like the aurora, this profile gets even more complicated.

It has historically been quite challenging to measure the ionosphere. 

Its air is too thin for balloons to travel there, but it is too thick for satellites to orbit. 

As a result, the majority of ionosphere experiments only provide limited amounts of data. 

HAARP approaches the study of the ionosphere in a manner similar to that of the EISCAT ionospheric heater at Troms, Norway. 

There, researchers broke new ground in the study of the ionosphere by jarring it with radio waves between 2 and 10 MHz and observing how it responds. 

The same tasks are carried out by HAARP, but with greater power and a more adaptable and agile HF beam.

4. HAARPs Capabilities

Very low frequency (VLF) radio waves can be produced by modulating the heating of the auroral electrojet, which is advantageous because doing so typically calls for enormous antennas.

Creating artificial Airglow, a commonly observable, subvisual phenomenon. It can be bright enough to be seen without a telescope under specific geophysical circumstances and transmitter setups.

Producing 0.1 Hz range ELF (extremely low frequency) waves. 

Since the length of an antenna is determined by the wavelength of the signal it emits or receives, these are practically difficult to make in any other way.

Producing whistler mode VLF sounds that travel through the magnetosphere and interact with particles in the Van Allen radiation belt as they do so

5. HAARP Research Focused on:

  • Measurements of plasma lines
  • Observations of stimulated electron emission
  • Research on gyro frequency heating
  • Spread F findings (blurring of ionospheric echoes of radio waves due to irregularities in electron density in the F layer)
  • Accelerated trace runs
  • Observations of airglow
  • Observations of heating-induced scintillation
  • Observations on VLF and ELF generation
  • Radio meteor observations

In order to study polar mesospheric summer echoes (PMSE), two VHF radars at 49 MHz and 139 MHz, a 28 MHz radar, and the powerful radar of the IRI were used to probe the mesosphere. 

Multiple radars operating in the HF and VHF bands enable researchers to compare findings that could one day result in an understanding of the formation mechanisms for these enigmatic occurrences.

  • The study of extraterrestrial HF
  • The Lunar Echo experiment with radar echoes
  • Spread spectrum transmitters are tested (2009)
  • Ionosphere effects of meteor showers
  • The ionosphere’s reaction to and recovery from solar flares and geomagnetic storms
  • Ionospheric disturbances’ impact on the strength of the GPS satellite signal
  • Generating dense plasma clouds in the upper atmosphere of Earth
  • Underground photography

By delivering radio signals across great distances, research done at the HAARP site has helped the US Navy perfect communications with its fleet of submarines.

6. Conspiracy theories 

Numerous conspiracy theories surround HAARP. 

Many people have made assumptions regarding the project’s capabilities and hidden motives. Rosalie Bertell, for instance, issued a caution concerning the use of HAARP as a weapon in 1996. 

In a book written by the Committee on Monetary and Economic Reform, Michel Chossudovsky said that “new scientific evidence reveals that HAARP is fully operational and has the power of causing earthquakes, storms, floods, and droughts. 

The downing of TWA Flight 800, the Gulf War syndrome and chronic fatigue syndrome have all been linked to HAARP throughout time, along with thunderstorms in Iran, Pakistan, Haiti, Turkey, Greece, and the Philippines.

7. Some of the Allegations:

  • The author of Angels Don’t Play This HAARP is Nick Begich Jr., the brother of retiring Alaska state senator Tom Begich and the late Mark Begich and son of the late U.S. Representative Nick Begich. 

According to him, the HAARP installation might cause earthquakes and transform the upper atmosphere into a massive lens, making it appear as though “the sky will truly burn.” He runs a website on which it is asserted that HAARP is a tool for mind control.

  • Ionospheric testing, according to a Russian military journal, would “unleash a cascade of electrons that might flip the Earth’s magnetic poles.”

Hearings on HAARP were held by the European Parliament and the Alaskan state legislature, with the latter claiming environmental issues.

  • Jesse Ventura, a former professional wrestler, was the former governor of Minnesota and a filmmaker. Whether the location is being used by the government to control the weather or to blast individuals with radio waves that can control their minds. Ventura submitted a formal request to visit the research station, according to an Air Force spokesman, but it was denied. He and his colleagues tried to enter HAARP but were turned away. 
  • Bernard Eastlund, a physicist, asserted that HAARP uses technology that is based on his own patents and is capable of neutralising satellites and modifying weather. Low-frequency background hums that are allegedly audible in many locations have been theorised to be caused by it.
  • According to rumours, two Georgia men who were detained in November 2016 on drug-related offences were planning domestic terrorism based on hoaxes about HAARP. The males, according to the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office, had a “huge arsenal” of AR-15 rifles, Glock handguns, a Remington rifle, and countless rounds of ammunition. The men allegedly sought to destroy HAARP because they thought it was capable of influencing the weather, mind control, and even the soul-trapping of individuals. According to police, the guys confessed to “God instructed them to destroy the soul-holding equipment in order to free the trapped souls.
  • Umran Inan, a professor at Stanford University, told Popular Science that beliefs about weather control were “totally misinformed,” adding “There is nothing at all we can do to change the Earth’s climatic systems. 

The power that HAARP radiates is enormous, yet it pales in comparison to the force of a lightning flash, which occurs 50 to 100 times per second. The intensity of HAARP is relatively low. 

8. Does HHARP possess the capabilities to cause floods by cloud bursts and earthquakes in any way?

HAARP does not have the capability to cause floods by cloud bursts or earthquakes. The scientific consensus is that these types of natural disasters are caused by geological processes and are not directly influenced by human activity.

HAARP was a research program aimed at studying the ionosphere, a part of the Earth’s upper atmosphere. The program used a high-power radio frequency transmitter to study the ionosphere and its effects on communication and navigation systems. It was not designed or equipped to cause natural disasters such as floods or earthquakes.

9. Social Media 

Sooner or later there will be a ~M 7.5 #earthquake in this region (South-Central Turkey, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon). #deprem, Frank Hoogerbeets predicted on Feb,3, how come it did happen so precisely at the places mentioned, the magnitude and the date

The prediction of an earthquake in a specific region, with a specific magnitude and date, is a complex and challenging task, and earthquakes are not always predictable with certainty. While there have been some advances in earthquake prediction, the science is still not advanced enough to make accurate, specific predictions about when and where earthquakes will occur.

Frank Hoogerbeets is known for his claims of using astronomical alignments to predict earthquakes, but these claims are not supported by the scientific community and are not considered credible by mainstream scientists. There is no evidence that astronomical alignments can be used to accurately predict earthquakes, and many of his predictions have not been accurate.

While some people may view this as supporting conspiracy theories, it is important to rely on credible scientific evidence and expert analysis when evaluating the risks associated with earthquakes and other natural disasters. Conspiracy theories and unverified predictions can be misleading and can distract from efforts to prepare for and respond to natural disasters in a safe and effective manner.
