As many of you have probably read in the news recently the Army has stood up a Cyber Directorate at the Pentagon. The Cyber Directorate will comprise of not only cyberspace operations, but also electronic warfare and information operations. The directorate is under the direction of BG (P) Patricia Frost.

Please note that after today the HQ, Department of the Army, Electronic Warfare Office page will no longer exist.
Our page will soon evolve into a new page that will represent the Army's Cyber Directorate.

Thank you all for your continued interest in Army electronic warfare and we hope to continue to engage you on our new Army Cyber Directorate page after the launch.

Dear Dept of the Army , Electronic Warefare Office, I respectfully seek advice concerning this matter I face in every residence I move to which has even been noticed by others in 2 other residences. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za-JS2oDmXE In the past I recieved threatening letters from a Youtube user that that stated he was using a Ultrasonic weapons towards my residence. At that time I had documented serious damage to my vehicles , harassment in all areas of my life some which came from a group called Citizens Corps. I have left over 8 schools since 2006 due to harassment and a few jobs and I am considering seeking asylum through another government in the near future if I am unable to prevent the attacks on my life. The sound penetrates everything and causes a vibration sound that makes the ear rings. I takes about 3 to 4 days to recover from the ringing sound then it goes away. Its not tinnititis. My last neighbhor said the sound was so powerful they had to sleep with fan on high during the winter along with ear plugs. I currently have right side hearing loss and at one point had to sleep in a bathtub. My information has been shared with accoustical engineers and one stated its infrasoinic other have said ultrasonic. One thing is for sure I have been systemtically attacked. I apperciate any advice on what equipment that I should use to check the spectrum. If you have any defense contractors that have the qualifications to check for Infrasonic and Ultrasonic waves and can pin point the user of the device it would be apperciate. Vents and fans high along with meters are not capable of producing ultrasound at the current power it is at now. Respectfully Submitted, Robert Rivera
