Is New Zealand part of the American fightback against Electro Magnetic Pulse Weaponry? In my opinion, you betcha.

But does New Zealand even know it? Is it maybe the fly in the ointment? Or does Trump have something that is forcing Ms Ardern to keep her mouth shut? Or is she too stupid to even know what is going on in her own country?

Here is the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency launching a satellite from her country and she hasn’t said a word…. you do have to wonder what the hell is going on.

 

“DARPA develops the weapons of the future. It funds everything from basic science to advanced technology, though the ultimate goal is always to develop something that can be used by the military.”

Sharon Weinberger — “The Imagineers of War: The Untold Story of DARPA, the Pentagon Agency That Changed the World.”

On face value, it is an innocent enough arrangement. A clever little American Company founded by New Zealander Peter Beck was created to launch rockets in to space.  Of course, it would not have been possible without the support of NASA, secured in 2010, when they won a contract to study low cost satellite launches.  By 2017, Rocketlab had secured backing from some major players, to the tune of in excess of US$140 million.

It was a remarkable feat and one that is now paying dividends for all concerned, launching satellites in to space from the Mahia Peninsula in New Zealand.

In March 2019, the company launched a satellite, developed by DARPA and called Radio Frequency Risk Reduction Deployment Demonstration (R3D2). Its job? To demonstrate the ability of small satellites to carry large deployable antennas needed to support high-bandwidth communications.

R3D2 is, to a layman like me, a bit like an umbrella. Unlike previous satellites that are launched with the “umbrella “ already open, this clever satellite stays closed and only opens once in orbit. In short, it is cheaper to deploy because it takes up less space.

Well, R3D2 is now deployed and happily circling 430 km overhead and orbiting the earth roughly 15 times a day.

These low cost high-bandwidth communication satellites open up many possibilities….   rapid deployment of space technologies that would have previously been impossible.

So what is DARPA up to elsewhere?

In February 2017 DARPA announced that it was looking into whether cells could somehow communicate with electro magnetic signals and thereby exchange information.

Flashback to the 1960’s when the American Government discovered that the Soviets were beaming microwaves at their Embassy in Moscow. They created a project known as Pandora which sought to investigate the effects of low levels of microwave radiation.

Sounds rather similar to the DARPA announcement in 2017 perhaps?

There have been many rumours circulating about Embassy officials becoming ill – in March 2018 Canadian and American staff at their Cuban Embassies fell ill. They had a range of symptoms and diagnoses including dizziness, ringing in the ears, headaches, memory loss, difficulty concentrating and mild traumatic brain injury. The symptoms were similar to those experienced by staff at the Embassy in China in 2016 and again shortly after the Havana outbreak.

All the symptoms bear a striking similarity to those experienced by people exposed to low level Electro Magnetic Pulse attacks.

Could America be the target of an electromagnetic event by an adversary with nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities? President Trump may think so.

On March 26, 2019  President Trump issued an  “Executive Order on " Coordinating National Resilience to Electromagnetic Pulses” in an effort to assess the risks of such an attack to critical U.S. infrastructure. Preliminary studies indicate that a catastrophic EMP event could cripple the U.S. economy and its military.

Back in 2012, Putin said:

“The military capability of a country in space or information countermeasures, especially in cyberspace, will play a great, if not decisive, role in determining the nature of an armed conflict.

In the more distant future, weapons systems based on new principles (beam, geophysical, wave, genetic, psychophysical and other technology) will be developed.

All this will, in addition to nuclear weapons, provide entirely new instruments for achieving political and strategic goals. Such high-tech weapons systems will be comparable in effect to nuclear weapons but will be more ‘acceptable’ in terms of political and military ideology.

In this sense, the strategic balance of nuclear forces will play a gradually diminishing role in deterring aggression and chaos.”

So that brings us back to the Mahia Peninsula, R3D2 and what the hell is going on beneath behind the scenes.

Remember the name of the R3D2 satellite?

Radio Frequency Risk Reduction Deployment Demonstration

What really happened that day in New Zealand? To me, there are many unanswered questions. 

Is this a trial… or a warning? If it is a warning - to whom?
