The same group of scientists that were reported to be responsible for the infamous "Philadelphia Experiment" were a sub-function within Project RAINBOW. The technical research continued in other functions. It was the follow-on group to this that was later able to create electronics warfare pods for the jets by the time of the Vietnam War. By using electromagnetic projections they could disturb the radar signals of surveillance and targeting radars used by our enemies.
Within another two decades, they had also created the PHASED ARRAY early warning radar systems. These were then additionally able to be placed into systems that could detect and register enemy artillery shells immediately after they were fired, then could calcualte their firing point, and feed the information to the computers controlling the integrated artillery batteries so that they could have artillery rounds already in the air and en route to the enemy artillery positions by the time the enemy artillery shells landed in our territory.
The ongoing development of the electronics warfare systems aboard our fighters and bombers are derived from the original Project RAINBOW research.
With that said, can we really de-bunk the reports of what supposedly occurred with the Philadelphia Experiment. After all, the systems in the electronic warfare packages on our current aircraft would have seemed impossible to the scientists in WW II.
