Програма HAARP закрита



Програмата на високо Active Утринни изследвания (HAARP) - обект на любопитство, много привърженици на конспиративните теории - затворен. Ръководител на програмата HAARP, д-р Джеймс Кийн Къркланд военновъздушната база в Ню Мексико, каза ARRL (роден източник;. Приблизително), че изследването на Центъра за изследване на йоносферата в Аляска затворени от началото на май.

"В момента обектът е затворен", каза той. "Това е въпрос на пари. Те не са. " Кийн заяви, че съоръжението е никой на пътя да го изключите, изключен от захранването на сградата и се запечатва. HAARP сайт чрез Университета на Аляска вече не е на разположение - Кийн казва, че програмата не може да си позволи да плати за услугата. "Всичко е в безопасен режим," казва той, добавяйки, че всичко ще остане в това положение най-малко през следващите 4-6 седмици.

HAARP обяви пред света, че ще бъде затворен преди две години, ако не бъде приета в рамките на бюджета за 2015 финансова година, но, казва Кийн, "никой не обърна никакво внимание на това."

Единственият светъл лъч на хоризонта за HAARP Очаква се, че съоръжението предлага Advanced научно-изследователска дейност на отбраната (DARPA), която трябва да завърши някои си там през есента или зимата. Агенцията DARPA в бюджета за 2014 финансова година е отделило около 8.800 милиона щатски долара за изследвания "на физическите аспекти на природни явления като magnetospheric под-дъжд, пожар, мълния и геофизични явления."

Съфинансирана от Военновъздушните сили на САЩ изследователска лаборатория и САЩ Naval Research Laboratory, HAARP е предмет на изучаване на йоносферата.

С настоящото състояние на нещата HAARP принадлежи на ВВС, но ако нито една от агенциите не е изразила желание да се грижи за себе си на HAARP, уникален обект, казва Кийн, ще бъдат премахнати. Той каза, че изграждането на булдозер, за да разруши това ще бъде по-евтино, отколкото да се премахне антенни елементи 180.

HAARP Facility Shuts Down

The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) — a subject of fascination for many hams and the target of conspiracy theorists and anti-government activists — has closed down. HAARP’s program manager, Dr James Keeney at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico, told ARRL that the sprawling 35-acre ionospheric research facility in remote Gakona, Alaska, has been shuttered since early May.

“Currently the site is abandoned,” he said. “It comes down to money. We don’t have any.” Keeney said no one is on site, access roads are blocked, buildings are chained and the power turned off. HAARP’s website through the University of Alaska no longer is available; Keeney said the program can’t afford to pay for the service. “Everything is in secure mode,” he said, adding that it will stay that way at least for another 4 to 6 weeks. In the meantime a new prime contractor will be coming on board to run the government owned-contractor operated (GOCO) facility.

HAARP put the world on notice two years ago that it would be shutting down and did not submit a budget request for FY 15, Keeney said, “but no one paid any attention.” Now, he says, they’re complaining. “People came unglued,” Keeney said, noting that he’s already had inquiries from Congress. Universities that depended upon HAARP research grants also are upset, he said.

The only bright spot on HAARP’s horizon right now is that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is expected on site as a client to finish up some research this fall and winter. DARPA has nearly $8.8 million in its FY 14 budget plan to research “physical aspects of natural phenomena such as magnetospheric sub-storms, fire, lightning and geo-physical phenomena.”

The proximate cause of HAARP’s early May shutdown was less fiscal than environmental, Keeney said. As he explained it, the diesel generators on site no longer pass Clean Air Act muster. Repairing them to meet EPA standards will run $800,000. Beyond that, he said, it costs $300,000 a month just to keep the facility open and $500,000 to run it at full capacity for 10 days.

Jointly funded by the US Air Force Research Laboratory and the US Naval Research Laboratory, HAARP is an ionospheric research facility. Its best-known apparatus is its 3.6 MW HF (approximately 3 to 10 MHz) ionospheric research instrument (IRI), feeding an extensive system of 180 antenna elements and used to “excite” sections of the ionosphere. Other onsite equipment is used to evaluate the effects.

Larry Ledlow, N1TX, of Fairbanks, Alaska, said HAARP ionosonde and riometer data have been “invaluable, especially being more or less local, to understand current conditions in the high latitudes.” He said data from other sites “simply do not accurately reflect the unique propagation we endure here.”

To fill the gap, Ledlow said, several members of the Arctic Amateur Radio Club — including Eric Nichols, KL7AJ, author of Radio Science for the Radio Amateur and articles in QST — have discussed building their own instruments. “It’s all very preliminary,” he said, “but we really feel the pinch losing HAARP.” Nichols, of North Pole, Alaska, has conducted experiments at HAARP. He called the shutdown “a great loss to interior Alaska hams and many others.”

The ultra-high power facility long has intrigued hams, even outside of Alaska. In 1997, HAARP transmitted test signals on HF (3.4 MHz and 6.99 MHz) and solicited reports from hams and short-wave listeners in the “Lower 48” to determine how well the HAARP transmissions could be heard to the south. In 2007 HAARP succeeded in bouncing a 40 meter signal off the moon. Earlier this year, HAARP scientists successfully produced a sustained high-density plasma cloud in Earth’s upper atmosphere.

As things stand, the Air Force has possession for now, but if no other agency steps forward to take over HAARP, the unique facility will be dismantled, Keeney said. He pointed out that it would cost less to bulldoze the antenna field than it would to replace the 180 antenna elements.

Splashy web postings abound, blaming HAARP for controlling the weather — most recently in the case of Hurricane Sandy and the spate of tornados — and for causing other natural disasters. Quipped Keeney, “If I actually could affect the weather, I’d keep it open.”
