USAF Going to Release Plasma Bombs to Improve Communications

This falls solidly into the “Holy crap” file. The below post is linked to the original article in the title. It proves definitively that “military intelligence” is an oxymoron. I haven’t yet been able to go through all the links in the article, but intend to do so as time permits. The press release checks out. So it seems totally legit from here.

Here’s the article:


U.S. Air Force To Alter Atmosphere With Plasma Bomb

For decades now, rumors have circulated about secret military projects to harness the Earth’s forces for use in warfare. Several top secret projects, such as the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, or HAARP, have conducted research into possible roles the Earth’s atmosphere might play in communications or weapons development. While the U.S. Armed Forces claim projects such as HAARP are merely for scientific purposes, conspiracy theories are still in circulation that accuse HAARP of causing earthquakes and other natural disasters.

Now, in a much more transparent move, the U.S. Air Force has announced its plan for improving satellite communications through altering the planet’s skies. The plan involves detonating scores of plasma bombs in the uppermost layers of the atmosphere in order to alter the physical properties of Earth’s vital protective shield. What could go wrong?

Claims of secret science programs surround sightings of strange phenomena in the skies.

According to New Scientist, the plan would involve increasing the density of the ionosphere, the layer of the Earth’s atmosphere that reflects radio waves and allows for long-distance communications. This would be achieved through launching scores of tiny satellites known as Cubesats, which would carry cutting-edge plasma bombs that release vaporized metals into the atmosphere when detonated. The resulting clouds of metallic vapor would then be able to better reflect radio waves and deflect solar radiation, improving the communications abilities of armed forces.

Tiny cube-shaped satellites called Cubesats are being eyed as a delivery method for atmosphere-altering bombs.

The bombs are being developed through a joint project between the U.S. Air Force, University of Maryland, and engineering firm Enig Associates. In a press release announcing the Air Force contract to develop these atmosphere-altering plasma bombs, Enig Associates claims that their technologies will open up new communications capabilities:

[…] the space plasma generator can be used to smooth out ionosphere disturbances to assure reliable communications and navigation in-theater, or to provide novel capabilities for RF systems.

A minuscule Cubesat. Potentially Earth-destroying things come in small packages.

John Kline, a plasma engineering researcher with Research Support Instruments in Hopewell, New Jersey, told New Scientist that these types of techniques are largely untested, meaning there could be unknown results:

These are really early-stage projects, representing the boundaries of plasma research into ionosphere modification.

Large-scale geoengineering projects, or allegations thereof, are a hot-button issue for many conspiracy watchers. Some see research projects such as the Air Force’s plasma bombs as signs of a secretive global plot to ruin our planet once and for all for, well, somebody’s benefit I suppose.

The fact remains, however, that human beings have been altering the Earth for millennia through actions such as agriculture, irrigation, and even raising perpetually-gassy livestock. Perhaps it is in our nature to want to alter our environment. Let’s just hope we don’t go too far this time.

    HAMS not the military use the ionosphere to communicate. The military uses satellites…. I am leary as hell about their stated motives.

      Perhaps the idea is to shut down our potential to communicate. I don’t know, but I can tell you that this simply freaks me out. They seem intent upon opening a black hole or a portal or something like that. I mean, plasma bombs? In the ionosphere???? It’s insane.

    I wonder how this fits in with China’s quantum satellite and CERN.

    For the record this is the third time I’ve tried to post this comment,

    Whomever wrote this is clueless about communications. “for improving satellite communications through altering the planet’s skies. ” The fact is that satellite communications do not depend upon the ionosphere reflecting your transmission.

    What this does sound like is a fall back way to communicate if their satellites are destroyed. Then they can fall back on using a reflective ionosphere like everyone had to do before there were satellites and HAMS still have to do.

    I don’t know what will happen to the ionosphere from having plasma bombs discharged. It is a major concern to me. I know in the late fifties and early sixties, the US and the Soviets sent a bunch of nuclear warheads up in Operation Fishbowl (pretty sure that was the name) and seemingly nothing happened here on the ground. But plasma? Might it cause a world wide EMP? It can’t really enhance satellite comms.

    I just don’t know, but I don’t like it.

    Also, since Google, NASA (right in line with the USAF) and CERN all have these D wave quantum computers, and China just sent the quantum satellite up, there is probably some interrelation.

      If you excite the ionosphere it becomes a MUCH better reflector of radio waves, the high frequencies in particular. My physics is about 40 years old so I do not know about their device producing an EMP that could harm our electronics.
      It’s possible that it could do both!
