Exposing Falsehoods and Revealing Truths

History of Development of Directed Energy Weapons by Nico Haupt

Although I am not a fan of Nico Haupt as a person, I like some of his work, including this helpful history of DEWs.


Lt. Gen. John Costello, the USASMDC commander, observes that “directed energy technology has the potential to be a key component in the
Army transformation effort.”

(formerly Signaal aka Fabriek van Signaalapparaten) establish a joint venture closely linking their air defense operations, to combine their radar and communications systems divisions. Named ThalesRaytheonSystems, the firm is 50% equally owned by both parent companies.

nationaldefensemagazine describes "laser weapons for ground combat—ranging from air-defense chemical lasers that destroy incoming rockets to smaller devices that could zap enemy antennas".
"...The Air Force is developing a megawatt airborne laser that would destroy intercontinental ballistic missiles...
...For the future combat system, the Army’s next-generation tank, the goal is to have a 100-kilowatt, un-cooled, solid-state laser...

Both Twin Towers disintegrate for unexplained reasons, wiping out also complete DNAs.
Early speculations on the internet point on "Tesla Weapons obtained by unknown terrorists".
This spin is later replaced by a much more popular, so called conventional 'controlled demolition' thesis.

The European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) is established.
During July 2005 the EGNOS system is tested for the second time, to track cyclists in the Tour de France road race. EGNOS is part of the european GPS-competitor Galileo GNSS system.
During the development of "Galileo GNSS", the U.S. officially declared that the european "system will only be subject to shutdown for military purposes in extreme circumstances"
After 9/11, the United States Government writes to the European Union opposing the project arguing that "it would end the ability of the United States to shut down GPS in times of military operations..."
In September 2003, China joins the Galileo project. In April 2009, Norway too joins the programme.
The European Satellite Services Provider (ESSP)-SAS, a form of French company founded in April 2001,

DigitalGlobe, a leading global provider of commercial high-resolution world-imagery products and services for defense and intelligence, announces the launch and deployment of WorldView-2, a remote-sensing satellite. It is launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
In 1995, the company became EarthWatch Incorporated, merging WorldView with Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp.'s commercial remote sensing operations. In September 2001, EarthWatch became DigitalGlobe.
QuickBird, their first high-resolution commercial earth observation satellite, launched on October 18, 2001 from Vandenberg Air Force Base.
The imagery is also used as a backdrop for mapping applications, such as Google Earth and Google Maps.
WorldView-1 was launched in 2007.
DigitalGlobe went public on the New York Stock Exchange in May 2009.
It is expected, that google will do some business with WorldView-2 as well.

SES WORLD SKIES, announces that the NSS-12 satellite successfully roared into space on-board an Ariane 5 ECA booster from the European Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana.
NSS-12 was manufactured by Space Systems/Loral.
Ariane 5 is also responsible for the COMSATBw-1 satellite to EADS Astrium.
Also aboard Ariane 5 rocket, is the THOR-6 telecommunications satellite, which will broadcast TV programmes to Scandinavia and central and Eastern Europe for Norwegian operator Telenor.
Ironically Telenor controls also Schibsted Nett, which promotes in the very same month, in their Schibsted owned Aftonbladet tabloid paper, yet another new "9/11 Truther" named Egon Frid, who sits in the Swedish Parliament.
The so called 9/11 Truthling Truthers mainly ignore the existance of Directed Energy Weapons and related and claim, that the Twin Towers had been brought down by Thermite.

Leading NASA scientist David Nozette, credited with helping discover water on the Moon on India’s Chandrayaan mission, who has been earlier arrested in October, on charges of spying for Israel is denied bail after prosecutors said he was a “walking safe deposit box” of government secrets.
Nozette is described as principal investigator on the American Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and Co-investigator on Mini-SAR (synthetic aperture radar), on Chandrayaan-1.

Just 2 days prior, the U.S. Department of Defense is handing out new Airborne Sensor Contracts "for Tracking Afghan Insurgents", which include Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery. The story is getting mainly distracted with pending elections in Afghanistan and a NY Times story about president Hamid Karzai's brother, linking him to the CIA.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is an official worldwide competitor with EADS, Mitsui, Motorola, and Raytheon and furthermore cooperates with Bulgarian Space Agency .

Fabulous. Also, we have tritium and deuterium present in large quantities, so we have to consider either direct use of small nukes playing a role, or BYPRODUCTS of electromagnetic charge in high (plasma-inducing) quantities, as Dr. Andrija Puharich's comments about Tesla's Wardenclyffe Tower may indicate, and must further consider T. Townsend Brown's work before he went to Stanford in the 'fifties (thinking he was being patriotic, though it took his further work out of the public record at that point).
Comment by James H. Fetzer on August 19, 2011 at 3:07pm

Here's a post I received from a correspondent yesterday:


To me, it’s all about the steel… Want to vaporize steel? Here’s one answer… to us on the ground it was a ‘top down’ destruction method, but to a satellite based system like this, ‘top down’ was actually the face of the target. Also suggests possibilities for melted fire trucks, mail trucks, wilted vehicles, paper that didn’t burn, parking lot with aluminum engines vaporized, aluminum door trim missing, test shot holes in other buildings, upside down vehicles as gas tanks exploded. Could also be an ignition source for the creation of hydrogen gas from stored water tanks on each floor to dustify concrete. This baby will vaporize steel (5,400 degrees).

Utility Sized-Field ApplicationBeing largest unit currently available from ProSolarTec, the Solar+ 74000 produces 73.7 kW of thermal power. The possibility of installing a number of these units in a field arrangement increases the viability of this unit to replace fossil fuels as a power source.· Output: 73.7 kW· Primary Mirror: 95.7 m2 (32' x 32')· Uses: InSitu Steam Production, EOR, SEGd; commercial district heating or cooling; melting Iron, Steel, ceramics; Carbon nano-materials.· Operation: Automatic.· Base: Fixed base.ProSolarTecProSolarTec now offers a unique high efficiency solar furnace capable of temperatures exceeding 3,000ºC (5,400ºF).Our Solar+ models are now available by order and offer major advantages over any other type of solar collector. Some of the many advantages include:· Comparatively low cost;· Very high temperatures and efficiency;· Simplistic operation - automatic two-axis tracking;· Ground level focus point;·

Multiple application receivers; andPortable units.

Gamma II Vaporizes Steel
The LIFE Prometheus team inadvertently vaporized steel using the Gamma II prototype on the 10th of February 2010.  The test, which had initially been intended to be the first steel pour using Prometheus solar technology, quickly became the first vaporization of steel when the steel sample was left in the light focus for a couple extra minutes.  In the time between determining that the sample was ready to pour and preparing an appropriate sand bed for pouring, the steel completely vaporized.  All that was left when the contents of the crucible were dumped out was some slag, the steel had vaporized into thin air.

Comment by Sharon Smith on August 19, 2011 at 2:59pm
I was watching the History Channel Show "Alien Engineering" last night.  There is a segment that shows how our Air force has, since 2001, had a laser weapon that can be loaded onto a 747 and is designed to shoot laser beams at missile warheads to blow them up.  The show states you will not be able to see the beam and can be quite a distance away.  I'm Thinking, maybe, they locked onto the towers 1&2 and helped bring them down. I am still looking for answers that will explain what I saw that day.
