May 9th: Sea-Based X-Band Radar spotted in Puget Sound
The U.S. Missile Defense Agency’s mobile HAARP facility pulled into a Seattle shipyard last week—for “maintenance and repair,” according to the Missile Defense Agency.
People are not allowed within 100 yards of SBX while it is in navigable U.S. waters and moored at Vigor Shipyards—the former Todd Pacific Shipyards—at Seattle’s Harbor Island.
The 280-foot tall SBX is a floating, self-propelled, mobile radar station designed to operate in high winds and heavy seas. It is part of the Defense Department’s Ballistic Missile Defense System.
It is supposed to be based at Adak, Aleutian Islands, Alaska, although it’s never been there, according to the Defense Department. Instead, it roams over the Pacific Ocean to detect incoming ballistic missiles.
The Missile Defense Agency said the radar is not operating while the giant apparatus is in port. [ Well, that’s a relief! ]
There is much speculation that the Japan earthquake of March 11 was triggered by a tectonic weapon such as HAARP. During March 2011 the US Navy’s floating HAARP Sea-Based X-Band Radar (SBX) platform was part of The Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group, taking part in the Key Resolve/Foal Eagle military exercises off the Korean coast. The exercise ended the day before the Japan quake struck.

The Official Story:
SBX Radar Vessel Transits Puget Sound Towards Seattle’s Vigor Shipyards
The Missile Defense Agency’s Sea-Based X-Band Radar (SBX) vessel will enter the Strait of Juan de Fuca later today and begin its transit of Puget Sound to arrive at Vigor Shipyard Seattle (formerly Todd Pacific Shipyards) in Seattle, Washington, late Tuesday night. The SBX is visiting the shipyard for maintenance and upgrades. This work will begin in mid-May and will take about three months to complete. The radar will not be based in the Seattle area, and will not operate while in the shipyard. All vessel movements and work associated with the SBX are fully compliant with all environmental, health, and hazard laws and ordnances.
The SBX Radar is one of the sensors for our nation’s missile defense system. Its mission is to identify ballistic missile threats and relay that information to the battle management, command, control and communications system for missile defense…
