HAARP Technology Effects: The Dark Side of Electromagnetic Manipulation

HAARP, a scientific undertaking aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere.

A research program jointly funded by the US Navy and US Air Force, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the Defense Advanced Research Agency. In 1990, Congress initiated the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program to study the Earth’s upper atmosphere and its effects on radio waves. Both civilian and defense systems could benefit from understanding and using it. Until 2014, HAARP was managed jointly by the USAF and the Navy. A major objective of the project was to investigate the physical and electrical properties of the Earth’s ionosphere, which have the potential to affect our military and civilian communication and navigation systems as well. HAARP researches the highest portions of the atmosphere, the thermosphere, and the ionosphere, to understand how they work. There are two types of research: Active, which requires using the Ionospheric Research Instrument, and Passive, which only uses monitoring instruments.

What is this Technology?

HAARP is an acronym for High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program, and it is a scientific undertaking aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere. A thin layer of ionosphere exists between 50 and 400 miles above the surface of the Earth, just on the edge of space. In addition to the neutral upper atmosphere, the ionosphere forms a boundary between the lower atmosphere, where we live and breathe, and the space vacuum between the planet’s surfaces. It is often difficult to observe natural phenomena. The HAARP technology allows scientists to control the timing and location of the perturbations to measure their effects in real-time. Additionally, the researchers can repeat their experiments to ensure the measurements show what the researchers believe they are showing.

HAARP scientists use HF radio transmitters to heat small ionosphere regions and observe the effects. Getting natural overhead conditions for traditional space research can take days, weeks, or even years using ground-based observations and sounding rockets. Satellites can amass much larger databases, but coordination with the desired phenomenon is difficult. HAARP allows experiments such as creating plasma structures and irregularities, using the ionosphere as an antenna to excite low-frequency waves, creating aurora-like glows, and more.


It was in 1990 that the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program was launched. It was the Republican senator from Alaska, Ted Stevens, who helped secure the approval for the facility, and construction began in 1993 as a result. BAE Systems Advanced Technologies was the prime contractor for the current working IRI, which was completed in 2007. In May 2014, it was announced that the HAARP program would be permanently shut down later in the year. As a result of discussions between the parties, ownership of the facility was transferred to the University of Alaska Fairbanks in August 2015.

How Does it work?

Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI) is the main HAARP instrument used to study the ionospheric environment. There are 180 antennas arranged in an array of 12 by 15 units in this large, high-power, high-frequency phase array radio transmitter having a range of about 30 to 40 acres (12-16 hectares) and occupying a rectangle of about 30–40 acres (12–16 hectares). A small portion of the ionosphere can be temporarily energized through the IRI. Understanding natural processes in the ionospheric environment are important by studying the disturbed volumes within them.
The transmitter system of the active ionospheric research system delivers the signal produced by the transmitter system to the antenna array, which then transmits the signal upwards. Over an altitude between 70 and 350 kilometers depending on the operating frequency, the signal is partially absorbed in a small volume of several tens of kilometers in diameter and a few meters in thickness over the International Radar Imager (IRI). Compared to the Sun’s natural electromagnetic radiation reaching the Earth, the HF signal in the ionosphere is less than 3 watts/cm2, tens of thousands of times less than a normal random variation in the Sun’s natural ultraviolet (UV) energy, which creates the ionosphere. HAARP’s sensitive scientific instruments can observe the small effects produced. Information about plasma dynamics and solar-terrestrial interactions can be gained from these observations.

Is HAARP Technology a cause of Earthquakes?

As the official website says, HAARP Technology does not cause earthquakes or change the weather. The troposphere and stratosphere, which create Earth’s weather, do not absorb radio waves in the frequency ranges that HAARP transmits. Weather cannot be controlled since there is no interaction. It is a large radio transmitter that makes up the HAARP system. In addition to their interaction with electrical charges and currents, the troposphere does not significantly affect radio waves. Furthermore, if the ionospheric storms caused by the Sun don’t affect the surface weather, HAARP can’t either. In the ionosphere, at a distance of about 60-80 km, electromagnetic interactions occur only in the near vacuum of a lofty, electrically charged region of the atmosphere. Sunlight interacts with Earth’s atmosphere to create and replenish the ionosphere.

Is HAARP Technology responsible for the Earthquake in Turkey & Syria?

Over 41,000 people were killed in earthquakes in Turkey and Syria on Monday, February 6. The rumors are there that the Earthquake occurred due to the HAARP Technology, and so many tweets were received that this Earthquake occurred through this technology. But this news has no truth because this technology cannot change the weather as it is officially claimed on the website. Social media users, rather than Turkish officials, have made all the allegations and remarks, and a Turkish official has made no such statement. Due to this, there has been no response from the United States to the accusations.

Is HAARP dangerous for health due to its electromagnetic field?

Field strengths associated with the antenna system of the high-power HF transmitter decrease methodically with distance from the antenna. As distance decreases, the signal strength drops rapidly to levels typical of those encountered near AM/FM/TV broadcast stations. The HF transmitter and antenna array was designed with safety in mind. Neither on nor off-site does the electromagnetic field exceed safety standards. Electromagnetic fields are lower at the closest public access point than in many urban environments. The antenna is the only site point that approaches electromagnetic safety standards.
