Direct Energy Systems: The Future of Warfare /
Christopher Fontenot /July 18, 2016
Well before the Strategic Defense Initiative(SDI), ‘Star Wars’ technology was being developed by international military collaboration. These entities have advanced various technologies based on collimated beam form(Directed Energy, DE) and wave length(frequency). Microwave Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation(M.A.S.E.R.) technology, Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation(L.A.S.E.R.), and more recently Phased Hyper-Acceleration for Shock, EMP, and Radiation(P.H.A.S.E.R.) technologies have been deployed to ground, air, sea, land, and satellite based operational platforms. SKYNET may not be fiction after all.
…through two separate mechanisms, power has been increased exponentially. Laser Induced Plasma Channeling creates an ionized conduit for discharge of ambient electrical charge potential in the Earth’s Ionosphere. At any moment, the total charge residing in this cavity is 500,000 Coulombs. There is a vertical current flow between the ground and the ionosphere of 1 – 3 x 10^-12 Amperes per square meter. The resistance of the atmosphere is 200 Ohms. The voltage potential is 200,000 Volts.
“It works like this: a high intensity, super-short duration (maybe two-trillionths of a second) laser pulse will actually use air like lens–surrounding air focuses the beam, keeping the laser pulse nice and tight rather than scattering it. If the pulse is strong enough, it actually creates an electromagnetic field around itself that’s so powerful it strips electrons from air molecules, essentially creating a channel of plasma through the air. Since air is composed of neutral particles (that act as insulators) and the plasma channel is a good conductor (relative to the un-ionized air around it) the path of the laser beam becomes a kind of filament.”
… “Electrical conductivity modification by creation of artificial ionization plasma patterns in the atmosphere can, for the first time, permit experimental study of electrical phenomena and contribute to new computer simulations of electrical activity in severe weather systems. Such plasma patterns can also be heated with microwaves to provide a unique new experimental tool that can artificially generate acoustic and gravitational waves in the atmosphere.”
“Artificial atmospheric plasmas can be produced by focusing microwaves from phased array antennas on localized regions of the atmosphere. [Ref. 3] These plasma patterns can be heated with microwaves at frequencies comparable to the plasma frequency in the patch. The electrical conductivity of the plasma patterns can lead to experiments in manipulating the electrical properties of weather systems through adjustments in atmospheric electrical conductivity.”
