Located near Gokona, Alaska, HAARP is a joint project of the Navy, Air Force, and Department of Defense. Its alleged purpose is to study the ionosphere.

Some believe its ultimate purpose is to develop a multifaceted weapon that can induce various mental states, modify the weather, disrupt communications, and destroy aircraft, missiles, or satellites.

Currently, HAARP is comprised of 180 high-frequency antennas over 70 feet tall, covering approximately 33 acres of virgin forest. Part of HAARP's research involves beaming intense (several billion watts) of radio frequency energy into the ionosphere.

Lloyd Ritchey seized upon the more radical theories concerning HAARP and incorporated them into Stormdragon. In the novel, a vastly more powerful and evolved instrument—ARC—is used by conspirators as a terrifying, undefeatable weapon of ultimate power.
