The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

Dear Sir or Madam:

This will acknowledge receipt of your requests for the following information:

Any documents which pertain to direct energy weapons (DEW) being tested or used on United States citizens.

It is this office's responsibility to advise you that your request remains unperfected and in fee dispute status, in that this office has not come to an agreement with you concerning recoverable fees and costs authorized in accordance with your requester status under the FOIA. From our research MuckRock appears to be an organization which assists anyone in filing governmental requests for information through the Freedom of Information Act, then publishes the returned information on your website. MuckRock apparently has merged with DocumentCloud an open-source software service platform that allows users to upload, analyze, annotate, collaborate on and publish primary source documents. You provide that information per customer accounts. Those accounts include for profit accounts. You appear in essence to be a commercial information warehouse. Obviously there are differences in the cost of a FOIA request depending on your status under the FOIA guidelines. Accordingly, this office is providing you this opportunity to provide us information justifying another FOIA requester status other than commercial, for our final analysis to determine your status.

Can you provide clarification?

Please provide a named person POC and respond back NLT July 6, 2018 or this office will determine final requester status without your input. Please reference NAVSPECWARCOM FOIA No. 18-224 in your response.

If you have any questions, I can be reached at the below POC information.
