Ionosphere heaters developed for electronic warfare purposes

Ionosphere heaters are being used today to wage electronic warfare (EW). This assertion isn’t conspiracy theory. The HAARP Alaska ionosphere heaters patent, the HAARP patent assignee who was the main contractor who designed, developed and built the US based inosphere heater and the current HAARP Alaska operators all provide evidence that ionosphere heaters like HAARP and Germany’s EISCAT were developed to:

1) cause climate change in a targeted area, and
2) be used for electronic warfare (EW).

“HAARP offers a great advantage to active ionospheric modification experiments” University of Alaska, Fairbanks

Ionosphere modification experiments is weather modification using high power radio waves.

“the term ‘ionospheric modification’ specifically refers to changes in the ambient properties of the ionosphere that are produced by humans. … Ionospheric heating facilities broadcast high power radio waves typically in the HF band in order to modify the ionosphere in a controlled manner. ” University of Florida

BAE Systems ionosphere heater Patent US4686605A “Method and apparatus for altering a region in the earth’s atmosphere, ionosphere, and/or magnetosphere” states:

Weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper atmosphere wind patterns or altering solar absorption patterns by constructing one or more plumes of atmospheric particles which will act as a lens or focusing device. … Besides actually changing the molecular composition of an atmospheric region, a particular molecule or molecules can be chosen for increased presence. For example, ozone, nitrogen, etc. concentrations in the atmosphere could be artificially increased.”

In such experiments, certain regions of the ionosphere are heated to change the electron density and temperature within these regions. This is accomplished by transmitting from earth-based antennae high frequency electromagnetic radiation at a substantial angle to, not parallel to, the ionosphere’s magnetic field to heat the ionospheric particles primarily by ohmic heating. The electron temperature of the ionosphere has been raised by hundreds of degrees in these experiments, and electrons with several electron volts of energy have been produced in numbers sufficient to enhance airglow.”

“Because of the mirroring phenomenon discussed hereinabove, it can also be prolonged for substantial time periods so that it would not be a mere transient effect that could simply be waited out by an opposing force. Thus, this invention provides the ability to put unprecedented amounts of power in the earth’s atmosphere at strategic locations and to maintain the power injection level, particularly if random pulsing is employed, in a manner far more precise and better controlled than heretofore accomplished by the prior art, particularly by the detonation of nuclear devices of various yields at various altitudes.”

“Still further, plumes in accordance with the present invention can be formed to simulate and/or perform the same functions as performed by the detonation of a “heave” type nuclear device without actually having to detonate such a device.

NASA Tech Brief November 2006

In recent years, large electron temperature increases of 300% (3000 K above background) caused by powerful HF-radio wave injection have been observed during nighttime using the EISCAT incoherent scatter radar near Tromsø in northern Norway.”

“It has been estimated that through radio frequency heating at a power of 10 kW for one day, it should be possible to increase the temperature of a soil volume of about 1 cubic m by about 200 C”

Rob Jacobsen, HAARP program director for BAE Systems in Washington, D.C.

HAARP is a scientific project to study the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, with emphasis on using the ionosphere to improve communications and surveillance systems for civilian and defense purposes,”

HAARP Alaska was built by BAE for the US Defense Department. As the prime contractor for the U.S. Defense Department’s High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) research station, BAE Systems designed and built the facility, operating software, and controls under a series of contracts valued at more than $250 million from the Office of Naval Research.

The company that built HAARP Alaska ionosphere heaters for the US Defense Department is in the business of designing and building systems for use in Electronic Warfare. BAE website:

Electronic Attack (EA) is the strategic use of electromagnetic or directed energy weapons to assault enemy forces’ electronic infrastructure with the intent to degrade or eliminate their combat capabilities. This includes threat analysis and response, as well as countermeasures such as signal jamming, electromagnetic deception (spoofing), lasers, radio frequency (RF) weapons, or any combination of the above EW tools to achieve threat neutralization.

Examples of electronic warfare (EW) weapons now in use or development include:

  • Antennas / Antenna Arrays (HAARP, EISCAT)
  • Directed Energy Weapons
