Physicist Dennis Papadopoulos, a professor at the University of Maryland and longtime proponent of HAARP, said the agreement that was worked out would transfer the facility from the Defense Department to the state of Alaska, and then over to the University of Alaska, which has long been involved in research at the site.
HAARP will then operate, like other ionosphere research sites, as a scientific facility supported by those conducting experiments there. Papadopoulos said that the state of Alaska will put in about $2 million, and some additional funding may come from the National Science Foundation and the Pentagon.
The facility has been dormant this summer, and Papadopoulos doesn't expect it to be operational until next spring, because of Alaska's harsh winter.
"The most important thing is the transfer," he said, "and that is happening in August."

But it remains a crucial science laboratory, says Dennis Papadopoulos, a physicist at the University of Maryland who works with HAARP.
"If we didn't know the radio science of the ionosphere, we wouldn't have TV reception from satellites, we wouldn't have GPS, we wouldn't have any of that," he says.
HAARP can send signals to these plasma belts, which the satellites can detect and use as measuring tools, Papadopoulos says.
"We can create a perturbation, and see what we can observe," he says. "We can whistle at the probes and say, ‘Did you hear the whistle, or is it a longer whistle?'"
There are similar facilities elsewhere on Earth, but they're not as powerful: One is in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, and another is in Russia. The closest HAARP counterpart is at a European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Association (EISCAT) facility in Tromsø, Norway, that is used by seven countries, including China. Papadopoulos says that by closing HAARP, the U.S. is ceding ground to countries like China.
Papadopoulos says this is the basis for the HAARP earthquake claims.
As for mind control? "If that were true, they wouldn't shut us down," Papadopoulos laughs.
Is This the End? Papadopoulos is among a few scientists trying to find new ways to fund and operate HAARP. He favors a consortium of research institutions paying fees to use it, and wants Congress to pay $2 or $3 million a year for the next three to five years to keep it going in the interim. But they'd better act fast: The military is not just shutting HAARP down, but preparing to bulldoze it.
The final DARPA-sponsored experiment is set to end in June, according to Nature. In classic DARPA-acronym fashion, it's called Basic Research on Ionospheric Characteristics and Effects, or BRIOCHE. After that, the bulldozers will arrive, Papadopoulos says. "There are amazing things we can do with HAARP," he says.

Harping on HAARP [cached]
Once this idea was proven experimentally1 in the mid-1980s, physicist Dennis Papadopoulos, then of the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC, began trying to drum up support for a new facility.
At the time the Pentagon was shutting down over-the-horizon radar sites that had been designed to detect Soviet bombers attacking the United States â€" including one in Gakona, an ideal location because it is underneath an electrojet. So Papadopoulos, who is now at the University of Maryland in College Park and has served as a scientific adviser for HAARP since the project's inception, argued for building an ionospheric heater there. The facility would help the Navy to study ELF waves, it would provide scientists with an ionospheric heater and it would guarantee continued life for the military site in Alaska, something that Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens, famous for steering congressional dollars to his home state, also liked. “That,â€� says Papadopoulos, “was the genesis.â€�
According to Papadopoulos, these claims, although far-fetched, were based on a sliver of truth: Bernard Eastlund, a consultant to one of the firms building HAARP, had filed a series of patents making extraordinary claims that HAARP-like technology could be used as a defence shield by transforming natural gas into microwaves, which would knock out incoming Soviet missiles.
The idea, jokingly dubbed the “killer shield�, was even reviewed by the JASON defence advisory group, but was dismissed as “nonsense�, according to Papadopoulos.
But Papadopoulos says that the experiment was more for the amateur radio community than for scientists.
