The Eastlund patent collection certainly does not represent a system capable of achieving any of its proposed applications. Previous geophysics research teams achieved each of the claims in some measure. Surely Industry did not wish to simply reproduce the list of previous geophysical achievements! But perhaps Industry was interested in buying out all the relevant Easdund-like patents simply because it had already ventured into a new and revolutionary technology designed to produce billion of dollars in yearly revenues. In such a case, we would then assume that Industrial act of purchasing the complete Easdund patent series of was an unintentional disclosure of intent! We would therefore never expect the Easdund patent to appear at all in the Industry HAARP project. In fact, photographic evidence proves this assertion to be correct. Neither diagrammatically nor descriptively, it is clear that the IRI has nothing at all in common with the Eastlund disclosures.
Finally, and unequivocally, HAARP is wave radio technology. HAARP has nothing at all to do with Tesla Impulse Technology. HAARP employs technology which Tesla continually berated! HAARP is the very antithesis of systems developed by Tesla, and only uses the Tesla name as a very effective publicity buzzword. As with so many other designs. Industry acquired the rights to the Easdund patents for a singular developmental purpose. The Easdund patent group was certainly not the only collective representation which Raytheon acquired when it “swept the patent floor”; a self-protective act. “Patent sweeping” is common practice in business ventures when one wishes to eradicate potentially threatening technologies. The concomitant fact that Industry directed the actual building of HAARP has eliminated that scenario. Why then did Industry buy up all of these patents on ionospheric heaters? Because it wishes to deploy a weapon? How ridiculous. Weapons are deployed with no permissions or requests. Infringement suits do not occur when military directed projects are concerned. But why did Industry acquire such patents at all? Furthermore, why did Industry form separate management groups for the development of its HAARP Project?
We are sufficiendy familiar with the several claims made for HAARP by genre writers, and are not sufficiently satisfied that any have really examined the IRI itself with any clarity of understanding. Project HAARP is not a weapons program. There are unlearned and paranoid speculators who have surrounded HAARP with a ragged entourage of supposed weapons applications which, from every military and engineering viewpoint, can never possibly be fulfilled. Even after the substantial modifications which have been both planned and openly announced, HAARP will never be exercised in these speculated functions. The complete engineering details concerning the IRI are buried under the cold white snow of a corporate megalith which, thus far, has maintained its frigid silence.
Weapons programs absorb and confiscate patents without permission. This is how security is maintained. Industry has absorbed every patent related to the HAARP effort. Were HAARP a weapon, no such affirmation would have been permitted. One does not purchase and collect such volumes of related patents except when preparing for some future venture. When one is developing a revolutionary technology, having potential entanglements and infringements from commercial and private sectors, one sweeps the patent floor. Were Industry operating on behalf of a military weapons project, they would never have called attention to themselves in purchasing these rights. Therefore, Industry’s involvement in HAARP can only be a commercial venture. The seemingly sizeable payments paid out when acquiring potential contestants is infinitesimal when compared with the projected profits of a revolutionary new commercial technology. Raytheon is thus compelled to protect itself against potential future infringement suits only if HAARP is indeed a business venture. This is precisely what the Industry has been doing all along.
The actual number of HAARP related patents acquired by the Raytheon Company greatly exceed those which other journalists have been able to ascertain or report. Furthermore, the often cited Eastlund Patent group was but one minor acquisition among the innumerable others which Raytheon absorbed in its preparatory tour-de-force. The IRI has been well camouflaged by the astounding variety of contradictory rumours. The mere absence of competitors indicates the degree of empowerment which Industry has been given. But for what purpose is such overwhelming authority and priority so directed?
If there were astute competitors, the IRI seems to be a new and unfamiliar technology which cannot adequately be assessed. Because it remains unfamiliar and unexpected, few view it as a financial threat. For this and other reasons, none think of questioning IRI development. Though few suspect the IRI as a new card in the hand, there is a single potential which the IRI serves. Every new announcement compounds the indication that the IRI will serve a singular function whose venture potential can literally change the world of energy commodities and utilities. To a very few who know the history of such devices, the IRI has a very obvious purpose. Besides opening a great many debates on the obsolescence of every residual radiowave technology, we are left with a clear path through which to understand HAARP; a design which is by no means the ultimate representation of its class. Two separate ionospheric heating facilities have tested in North America. The Arecibo facility in Puerto Rico is geophysically coupled to a natural mountain basin, some 1000 feet in diameter. The HIPAS facility near Fairbanks, Alaska was designed to focus radio energy on the ionosphere at one-quarter the rated output of HAARP, a value of some 250 Megawatts. Besides being a very poorly designed example of a large-scale influence-type transmitter, a technology which needs serious examination, the IRI does not yet exist! Its weak developmental prototype (the DP) is what has been so much discussed.
IONOSPHERIC RESEARCH INSTRUMENT
The time for extensive expenditures on new weapons projects commenced with SDI in 1983 and was discontinued by the end of the same decade. While the IRI is intended to be an expensive experimental station, whose data can be used toward the development of several distinct systems in the future, it is clearly an attempt in a singular scientific direction. The IRI has been recently hailed as a “diagnostic tool” which will soon have multiple experimental applications. But what will the chief application of the IRI be? What do our evaluations finally conclude? The one military release which attracts my attention is the least mentioned throughout the literature of hysteria. It is the one description which accurately matches the existing structure in Gakona that I am surprised so few of the more prolific researchers have focussed their more scholarly attentions thereto.
