De-classified harassment technologies

July 30, 1999

This page lists articles from technology publications which show how these technologies are being marketed in commercial form, and have also been and are being used to harass covert weapons testing victims:

The reader is asked to remember that ANNOUNCED inventions with potential for "national security" use are ALWAYS already in use covertly when announced. The SR-71 "Blackbird" surveillance aircraft was in use almost 20 years before the public saw it.

This page lists articles from technology publications
which show how these technologies are being used to
harass covert weapons testing victims, and are now
coming out in commercial form, or have been announced
to the public:

    "Radar Warns Birds of Impending Aircraft"

    This article by Bruce Nordwall (Washington
    bureau) describes research being carried on by
    the USAF Wright Laboratory at Dayton Ohio.
    The article describes the use of MODULATED
    radar signals to produce AUDIBLE SOUND within
    the brains of birds near airport runways to
    cause them to fly away and avoid collisions
    with landing aircraft.

    unclassified development is now in progress.

    ** The transmission via MODULATED microwave
    pulses carrying voices to selected weapons
    testing victims has been carried on for more 
    than two decades, as reported by the victims.
    There has been little published about this
    phenomenon, and since direct-to-skull voice
    transmissions are consistently mis-interpreted
    by psychiatrists as 'schizophrenia', getting 
    this information to the public needs concerted
    attention.

    "Business Trends" section, page 20

    See: How it works

    Inventor Elwood Norris, and his small company,
    (American Technology Corp., Poway CA)
    have designed a market ready device called an
    "acoustical heterodyne".

    This device sends out two sound signals in the
    ultrasonic (above-human-hearing) range which,
    when they impact a surface, which may be a
    living creature, then and only then produce a
    sound at a frequency equal to the DIFFERENCE
    ("heterodyne") of the two ultrasound frequencies.

    ** This technology has been used extensively by
    harassers who follow a walking or driving victim
    and bounce raucous, unnatural bird calls and 
    other strange sounds off surfaces near the 
    victim.  This type of sound is tape recordable.

    Let Police Find Hidden Guns on Street" article

    Current site: http://www.millivision.com
    AP article:   ..about airport usage, March '99

    This article, with photos supplied by Millitech
    Corporation, describes recently unclassified
    "millimeter wave" cameras (and some other see-
    thru technologies less well developed.)

    These units operate like camcorders, giving 
    the user a real-time thru-clothing, thru-
    luggage image for detecting weapons and drugs.

    Technology like this does not just pop out of
    nowhere overnight, and it probably has its
    roots in the 1960's classified microwave weapon
    "renaissance" - about the same time as the U.S.
    embassy staff in Moscow discovered they were
    being bathed in Soviet microwave signals.

    Electronic weapon Roy Bercaw, Boston MA, reports:

    Boston Herald reports Oct 13 '98 "police used a
    ground radar device to investigate whether the
    newly painted basement floor had been disturbed."

    I called to that police department today. I was
    referred to the state police crime scene
    services. The state police Lt. is said to have
    "hired the guy" who used that equipment. It is
    for hire?  Who wants to rent one? I'll try to
    get the name of the manufacturer and maybe some
    specifications.

    "Electronic Dipstick" article

    This article describes "micropower impulse radar"
    or "MIR" radar, developed at Lawrence Livermore
    Lab in California, and licensed to several large
    companies for consumer products.  Basically, this
    radar uses the highest radio frequencies and does
    not require the supporting hardware like rotary
    antennas which 'conventional' radar does.

    Uses include vehicle blind-spot sensors, traffic
    control sensors, heart muscle response monitors,
    and see thru plaster stud finders.

    Scanners That 'Undress' People", Malcolm W.
    Browne

    This article pre-dates the Millitech articles
    above, and references the Pacific Northwest
    Laboratory in Richland WA, operated by the U.S.
    Department of Energy.  The National Institute of
    Justice has expressed interest in radar units
    which can scan for weapons at a distance of 12'.

    Douglas L. McMakin says he has demonstrated that
    this is technically feasible.

    Ira Glasser, executive director of the ACLU,
    referred to the project as a "looney tunes scheme".

    ------------------------------------------------

    ** Thru the wall radar has been covertly used
    for a number of years on weapons testing victims.
    One common use has been to detect where the 
    victim is standing or walking in their apartment,
    and 'follow' the victim's position by rapping
    floor, walls, or ceiling from an adjacent apt.
    This is designed to let the victim know he/she
    is under constant surveillance.

    Three high-tech labs are in the final stages
    of developing a new form of radar device that
    can see through walls by broadcasting radio
    signals across broad bands of the spectrum to
    pinpoint a hidden suspect. Based on military
    technology, the products still need
    government approval and won't go on the
    market for at least a few more months.  But
    police who have tried various versions of the
    new radar scanners like what they see and
    what the product developers are telling them.

    DOD, INTEL AGENCIES LOOK AT RUSSIAN MIND CONTROL
    CLAIMS

    Federal law enforcement officials considered
    testing a Russian scientist's acoustic mind
    control device on cultist David Koresh a few
    weeks before the fiery conflagration that killed
    the Branch Davidian leader and 70 of his followers
    in Waco, Texas, DEFENSE ELECTRONICS has learned.

    In a series of closed meetings beginning March
    17 in suburban northern Virginia with Dr. Igor
    Smirnov of the Moscow Medical Academy, FBI 
    officials were briefed on the Russian's decade-
    long research on a computerized acoustic device
    allegedly capable of implanting thoughts in a
    person's mind without that person being aware
    of the source of the thought.

    ...

    His account of the meetings was confirmed by
    Psychotechnologies Corp., a Richmond, Virginia
    based firm that owns the American rights to the
    Russian technology.

    Title: Russian Machine That Tranquilizes People

    Dr. Ross Adey, chief of research at Loma Linda
    Veterans Hospital, tests a LIDA machine, which
    uses a radio signal to perform the same function
    as chemical tranquilizers.

    PROOF POSITIVE that radio signals can alter
    the functioning of the human mind.

6.  Dan Rather's CBS Evening News, Dec. 9, 1997

    Police helicopters were the topic, and one of
    the features soon to be added to police heli-
    copters was "an electromagnetic ray gun which
    can stop speeding cars dead."

    While this is primitive technology compared
    with that used to manipulate the minds and
    nervous systems of e-weapons victims of the
    1990's, it does demonstrate quite clearly
    that government is putting substantial re-
    sources into electromagnetic weapons devel-
    opment.

7.  Canadian version, Discovery Channel, "Invention"
    segment, Thursday December 25, 1997

    During part of the show, it was stated that
    the current development of polygraphs (lie
    detectors) using massive computer-aided database
    comparisons was now a reality and these machines
    were making substantial progress towards near-
    perfect accuracy.

    The final statement in that segment was:  It is
    expected that the next stage in polygraph devel-
    opment will be REMOTE MICROWAVE detection of
    bodily functions, which will mean the polygraph
    can then be used SECRETLY, at a distance.

8.  Associated Press:  (Dec. 2, 1997)

    TOKYO - Tired of reaching for the remote
    control every time you surf the channels?
    Help is on the way  - at a price.  A
    Japanese company plans to market a device
    that changes television channels and
    activates household appliances at the
    flicker of a brain wave.  The price:
    roughly 600,000 yen ($4,800).  The product,
    called the Mind Control Tool Operating
    System, or MCTOS, is the result of a
    collaboration between the Technos Japan
    Co. and the Himeji Institute of Technology
    in southwestern Japan.

    Say you want to turn on the air
    conditioner.  Simply focus on that icon on
    the MCTOS computer display menu while
    wearing a pair of beta-wave trapping
    goggles.  Then, according to Technos
    spokesman Sadahiro Ushitani, say something
    like "Ei!!" inside your head.  Soon your
    air conditioner will be pumping cool air
    into the room.

    MCTOS is scheduled to go on sale in 
    April, 1998.

9.  On Jan. 19 the Washington Post had an article
    about a device for remotely detecting
    heartbeats by detecting the electromagnetic
    pulses emitted by beating hearts.

    Picture of an actual
    "radar flashlight" device.

    An excerpt:

    "The pumping of the human heart is controlled
    by electrical signals, which doctors measure in
    electrocardiograms. The heart's activity
    generates an irregular, ultralow-frequency
    electric field that extends in a circle around
    the body.

    "The field is faint, but it can pass through
    almost any physical barrier. The LifeGuard can
    pick up on the strongest part of the field, the
    heart, through barriers including concrete
    walls, heavy foliage and rocks. Company
    officials say the LifeGuard can detect a person
    in less than five seconds and can pinpoint his
    or her location with a high degree of
    accuracy."


    The company is marketing the device for
    potentially locating people in need of rescue,
    or detecting where individuals are located
    inside a building.

    "Advances in neuroscience may threaten human rights"
    by Declan Butler

    (PARIS - Pasteur Institute - Speech by Chairman of
    the French national bioethics committee Jean-Pierre
    Changeaux)

    "But neuroscience also poses potential risks, arguing
    that advances in cerebral imaging make the scope for
    invasion of privacy immense.

    "Although the equipment needed is still highly spec-
    ialized, it will become commonplace and capable of
    being used at a distance, he predicted.  That will
    open the way for abuses such as invasion of personal
    liberty, control of behaviour, and brainwashing."

    "These are far from being science-fiction concerns,
    said Changeaux, and constitute a serious risk to
    society."

    Also in that article:

    "Denis LeBihan, a researcher at the French Atomic
    Energy Commission, told the meeting that the use of
    imaging techniques has reached the stage where
    we can almost read people's thoughts."

    Demonstrated the "TCMS" device, or "Trans Cerebral
    Magnetic Stimulator", which is used as a substitute
    for conventional conductive electrode psychiatric
    shock treatment.

    Of interest to electronic neuro-influence weapons
    victims was the demonstration where the magnetic
    coil array was placed on a test subject's forearm.
    Each pulse triggered involuntary movement of the
    subject's fingers, very similar to what e-weapons
    victims experience repeatedly.
