Comment: Of special interest to Florida residents is the University of Florida’s participation in a HAARP, Space Weapons project as a “land-grant, sea-grant, and space-grant research university”.
The militarization of Gainesville’s local economy is becoming more apparent as it hosts companies like the UF’s PRIORIA Robotics, manufacturers of military drones with exclusive contracts to documented CIA fronts like Evergreen International.

UAV Companies Lobby Congress for Lethal Drones
Universities with military contracts inevitably upgrade campus security with SWAT team personnel, equipment and assault-style weapons like the M-4 carbine.
In March 2010, a UF Campus Swat Team crashed into campus housing and shot an unarmed, black doctoral candidate student with an assault-style M-4 carbine. The victim – Kofi Adu-Brempong – was shot in the head where the bullet lodged in his spine and a second round that penetrated his hand.
It’s understandable the public is unaware of this event until now since the incident was effectively censored by nearly every national corporate media source. Why? Because it contradicted the “lone nut” propaganda of campus shootings now used as a federal gun-grab following the highly suspect Sandy Hook operation. Even though it was ultimately ruled that the UF Swat Team acted without probable cause the story remained scrubbed from any otherwise deserved “sensational” gun shooting story. Coverage was mostly limited to local Gainesville news and a few alternative media sources like Democracy Now.

NRL Scientists Produce Densest Artificial Ionospheric Plasma Clouds Using HAARP (Source)
U.S. Naval Research Laboratory research physicists and engineers from the Plasma Physics Division, working at the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) transmitter facility, Gakona, Alaska, successfully produced a sustained high density plasma cloud in Earth’s upper atmosphere.
“Previous artificial plasma density clouds have lifetimes of only ten minutes or less,” said Paul Bernhardt, Ph.D., NRL Space Use and Plasma Section. “This higher density plasma ‘ball’ was sustained over one hour by the HAARP transmissions and was extinguished only after termination of the HAARP radio beam.”
Sequence of images of the glow plasma discharge produced with transmissions at the third electron gyro harmonic using the HAARP HF transmitter, Gakona, Alaska. The third harmonic artificial glow plasma clouds were obtained with HAARP using transmissions at 4.34 megahertz (MHz). The resonant frequency yielded green line (557.7 nanometer emission) with HF on November 12, 2012, between the times of 02:26:15 to 02:26:45 GMT.

These glow discharges in the upper atmosphere were generated as a part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) sponsored Basic Research on Ionospheric Characteristics and Effects (BRIOCHE) campaign to explore ionospheric phenomena and its impact on communications and space weather.
Using the 3.6-megawatt high-frequency (HF) HAARP transmitter, the plasma clouds, or balls of plasma, are being studied for use as artificial mirrors at altitudes 50 kilometers below the natural ionosphere and are to be used for reflection of HF radar and communications signals.
Past attempts to produce electron density enhancements have yielded densities of 4 x 105 electrons per cubic centimeter (cm3) using HF radio transmissions near the second, third, and fourth harmonics of the electron cyclotron frequency. This frequency near 1.44 MHz is the rate that electrons gyrate around the Earth’s magnetic field.
The NRL group succeeded in producing artificial plasma clouds with densities exceeding 9 x 105 electrons cm3 using HAARP transmission at the sixth harmonic of the electron cyclotron frequency.
Optical images of the artificial plasma balls show that they are turbulent with dynamically changing density structures. Electrostatic waves generated by the HAARP radio transmissions are thought to be responsible for accelerating electrons to high enough energy to produce the glow discharge in the neutral atmosphere approaching altitudes of nearly 170 kilometers.
The artificial plasma clouds are detected with HF radio soundings and backscatter, ultrahigh frequency (UHF) radar backscatter, and optical imaging systems. Ground measurements of stimulated electromagnetic emissions provide evidence of the strength and frequency for the electrostatic waves that accelerated ambient electrons to ionizing velocities.
The NRL team is working with collaborators at SRI International (Stanford), University of Alaska Fairbanks, University of Florida, and BAE Systems (DoD) on this project to synthesize the observations with parametric interactions theory to develop a comprehensive theory of the plasma cloud generation. The next HAARP campaign, scheduled for early 2013, will include experiments to develop denser, more stable ionization clouds.
