As Montauk project According to a popular conspiracy theory, a series of alleged secret attempts by the US government that took place on the military airfield are namedCamp Hero allegedly carried out in Montauk on Long Island.

The conspiracy theory began in the book published in 1992 The Montauk Project: Experiments in Time by Preston Nichols. He claimed that in the 1970s and 1980s by a radar facility of the (according to the US Air Force, closed in 1981) Camp Hero an attempt would have been made to influence the minds of millions of Americans, even to remotely control them. Nichols published several serial volumes that portrayed the alleged secret program of the US government as more and more far-reaching and ramified and also brought them into connection with the Philadelphia Experiment. The books reached a circulation of more than 100,000 copies. Numerous alleged victims of the experiments came forward, books by other authors appeared on the subject, and a large number of websites dealing with the subject can be found on the Internet.
