The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) operates a major new ionospheric research facility at Gakona, Alaska. As you look through our web site, you will find many technical details about this facility and about active ionospheric research in general. The web site also contains descriptive material on the Earth's ionosphere and gives examples of some early scientific results obtained at the HAARP facility.
Since the goal of HAARP is to operate a research facility where high quality ionospheric research can be conducted, we provide some general comments about the need for and nature of this research. We begin with a discussion of some specific research areas that are being studied at the HAARP observatory and the corresponding benefits to society.
HAARP is a scientific endeavor aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defense purposes. (Seems they have covered all of their bases, with this broad description).
