Корпорация Raytheon – ведущий американский производитель систем противовоздушной обороны

Корпорация Raytheon является одним из крупнейших военно-промышленных объединений мира, с объемом годовых продаж 25 млрд. долл. (из них 16 млрд. долл. – на американском оборонном рынке) Raytheon входит в пятерку крупнейших подрядчиков министерства обороны США и выступает в качестве ведущего американского разработчика и производителя ракетного оружия и радиотехнических систем, включая комплексы ПВО, и считая себя крупнейшим в мире производителем управляемых ракет.

 

История компании

История корпорации началась в 1922 г., когда несколько молодых инженеров создали в штате Массачусетс фирму American Appliance Company для разработки и производства радиоборудования. Первой разработкой компании в 1925 г. стала лампа, позволяющая создавать сетевые блоки питания для радиоприемников и получившая название «газовый выпрямитель «Raytheon» (само слово было выдуманной комбинацией греческого со старофранцузским и означало «луч божественного света»). Лампа нашла широкий спрос в быстро растущей радиопромышленности, и в 1925 г. компания в соответствии со своим новым брендом была переименована в Raytheon Manufacturing Company. Продажам компании способствовал быстрый успех, и с конца 1920-х гг. Raytheon превратилась в одного из главных американских производителей радиоламп.

В начале Второй мировой войны Великобритания обратилась к американскому рынку для размещения на нем заказов на магнетроны – ключевые компоненты конструкции РЛС. Первый контракт на производство магнетронов получила Raytheon, оперативно предложившая англичанам также весьма результативные улучшения его конструкции. Raytheon стала главным производителем магнетронов для РЛС всех типов для союзников в годы войны, изготовив до 80% мирового выпуска магнетронов до конца 1945 г. Одновременно Raytheon занялась собственной разработкой корабельных РЛС, создав целый ряд локаторов, ставших к концу войны основными на американском флоте. Побочным результатом работ в области радиолокации стало изобретение Raytheon микроволновой печи, серийный выпуск которых для коммерческого применения был начат компанией в 1947 г.

В 1945 г. Raytheon начала разработку систем наведения для ЗУР, в частности, для первой опытной американской системы Lark. А вскоре компания получила контракты на создание ракет для двух ставших впоследствии эпохальными для вооруженных сил США ракетных комплексов – Sparrow класса «воздух-воздух» и ЗРК HAWK. С пятидесятых годов и до начала нового тысячелетия Raytheon изготовила 74 тысячи ракет Sparrow (в том числе 12 тысяч в варианте ЗУР) и более 40 тысяч ракет HAWK. Компанией были созданы также системы наведения для первой американской серийной ракеты класса «воздух-воздух» Falcon (разработки Hughes) и первой противорадиолокационной ракеты Shrike (разработки Texas Instruments).

Raytheon осуществляла также производство военного и коммерческого радиооборудования, в пятидесятые годы была крупным производителем телевизоров. В 1948 г. компания первой в мире начала производство транзисторов. Raytheon усилила свои позиции в сфере радиоэлектроники приобретением в 1957 г., профильной компании Apelco Applied Electronics, а в 1961 г. – ведущей британской радиотехнической и электронной компании A.C. Cossor.

В шестидесятые годы Raytheon Company (такое название она носила с 1959 г.) была активно вовлечена в американскую космическую программу, поставив, в частности, БЦВМ для лунных космических кораблей Apollo. C 1967 г. Raytheon стала головным подрядчиком по разработке перспективного ЗРК средней и большой дальности Patriot, поныне являющегося одим из «столпов» производственной деятельности компании.

В 1980 г. Raytheon вторглась в авиационную сферу, приобретя известную компанию по производству легких самолетов Beech Aircraft, а в 1993 г. дополнила ее приобретением прав на выпуск «бизнес-джетов» Hawker у британской корпорации ВАЕ. Авиационное подразделение получило название Raytheon Aircraft Company, но в 2007 г. Raytheon продала его, и оно сейчас является самостоятельной компанией Hawker Beechcraft.

Девяностые годы стали временем крупномасштабных структурных трансформаций и слияний в американской оборонной индустрии, кардинально изменивших ландшафт американского ВПК. Значительное количество именитых американских оборонных фирм было поглощено  рядом крупных корпораций, окончательно трансформировавшихся в гигантские военно-промышленные объединения. Raytheon выступила одним из полюсов этой консолидации. В 1995 г. она приобрела электронную компанию E-Systems, а в 1996 г. – военное электронное подразделение корпорации Chrysler. Пиком поглощений стал 1997 г., когда Raytheon приобрела военные бизнесы таких известных фирм, как Texas Instruments и Hughes Electronic (к тому времени контролировавшейся General Motors), причем к Raytheon отошли ракетные производства не только Hughes, но и купленные последней в 1992 г. у General Dynamics. Кроме того, Raytheon приобрела военные подразделения корпораций Delco и Magnavox.

Таким образом Raytheon консолидировала в своих руках значительную часть разработки и производства управляемого вооружения в США. С приобретенными компаниями к корпорации перешли выпуск и развитие целого ряда ключевых ракетных систем американских вооруженных сил: от Hughes – ракет AMRAAM класса «воздух-воздух» и Maverick класса «воздух-поверхность», ПТРК TOW и Javelin (последнего в рамках совместного предприятия с Lockheed Martin), перехватчика ПРО EKV, от General Dynamics – крылатых ракет Tomahawk, корабельных ЗРК Standard и RAM, переносного ЗРК Stinger, от Texas Instruments – ракет JSOW класса «воздух-поверхность», противорадиолокационных ракет HARM и управляемых авиационных бомб Paveway. От Hughes корпорация унаследовала также производство ряда типов наземных и авиационных РЛС и мощное спутниковое подразделение.

 

Современное состояние компании

В настоящее время Raytheon Company представляет собой мощную американскую научно-производственную корпорацию с 72 тысячами занятых и объемом продаж в 2010 г. в 25,2 млрд. долл. С 1928 г. Raytheon является публичной компанией, акции которой свободно обращаются на Нью-Йорской фондовой бирже (сейчас 426 млн. акций). Штаб-квартира корпорации находится в Уолтхеме, штат Массачусетс. Председателем и главным исполнительным директором Raytheon с января 2004 г. является Уильям Свэнсон, работающий в корпорации с 1972 г. и прошедший в ней все ступени производственной и должностной карьеры.

За последние пять лет годовой объем продаж Raytheon вырос более чем на 25% — с19,7 до 25,2 млрд. долл., и на 2011 г. корпорация планирует рост продаж до величины 25,5-26,3 млрд. долл. Этот рост связан прежде всего с увеличением военных расходов США в последнее десятилетие, ростом заказов Пентагона, а также устойчиво растущими экспортными продажами (в, частности, заключением контрактов на поставку ЗРК РАС-3 Тайваню, Кувейту и ОАЭ). Компания получает устойчивую прибыль (1,8 млрд. долл. в 2010 г., рост с 1,1 млрд. долл прибыли в 2006 г.), а  доходность на акцию выросла с 2006 г. почти на 80%. Портфель заказов последнее пятилетие остается на стабильно высоком уровне, составляя на начало 2011 г. около 33,5 млрд. долл. (в 2010 г. было получено новых заказов на сумму 24,449 млрд. долл.).

Raytheon является практически исключительно оборонной фирмой – военные и связанные с ними продажи составили 93% от общего объема продаж корпорации в 2009 г. (23,139 млрд. долл. из 24,881 млрд. долл.). Основным для корпорации остается внутренний рынок США – в 2009 г. 79% объема продаж пришлись на США (в подавляющей части на министерство обороны и другие правительственные агентства), и лишь 21% — на продажи из-за рубежа (хотя объем полученных Raytheon в 2009 г. заказов из-за рубежа составил 30% от общего). В топе крупнейших подрядчиков федерального правительства США Raytheon числится пятой – после корпораций Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman и General Dynamics.

The U.S. Military Has a Master Plan to Crush North Korea's Nuclear ICBMs

Kris Osborn Security, A US military upgraded Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle, or EKV, a kinetic-force weapon that slams into its targets, to be exact.  Raytheon describes its developmental approach as one that hinges upon what’s called “open-architecture,” a strategy designed to engineer systems with the ability to easily embrace and integrate new technologies as they emerge. This strategy will allow the MOKV platform to better adjust to fast-changing threats, Nicholls said. A US military upgraded Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle, or EKV, a kinetic-force weapon that slams into its targets, destroyed an intercontinental ballistic missile for the first time during a Missile Defense Agency test of the Ground-based Midcourse Defense system several months ago. The Missile Defense Agency's first-ever successful intercept of an ICBM target using a Ground-based Midcourse Defense system, using the kinetic force of an Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) to destroy the target, is paving the way toward advanced future kill vehicles able to discern and attack multiple approaching threats, industry and Pentagon officials said. During the test, an ICBM-class target was launched from the Reagan Test Site on Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, a Missile Defense Agency statement said. "Multiple sensors provided target acquisition and tracking data to the Command, Control, Battle Management and Communication (C2BMC) system," the statement added. The intercept, taking place over the Pacific Ocean, used X-band radar to track the target for using a fire control solution to destroy the ICBM. All of this is seen by developers as a crucial step toward a new future system, called Multi-Object Kill Vehicle, or MOKV. It is designed to release from a Ground Based Interceptor and destroy approaching Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles, or ICBMs -- and also take out decoys traveling alongside the incoming missile threat. Development of the MOVK is intended to evolve from existing tests with the EKV, however industry and Pentagon developers do not want to rush the system in order to ensure it is well suited to destroy emerging threats anticipated five, ten or more years from now,  Norm Montano, Raytheon EKV Program Director, told Scout Warrior in an interview last year. While many months ago, Montano's comments bear even greater relevance now - as tensions with North Korea rise quickly and many analyze the regime's fast-advancing ability to hit US targets with an ICBM.

Russia and China Have One Big Advantage over the U.S. Navy (But Not for Long)

Dave Majumdar Security, Anti-ship missiles.  The U.S Navy is moving forward with adding an anti-ship capability back into its Tomahawk Block IV cruise missiles to defeat a new generation of enemy surface combatants at range. In the past, the Navy had fielded a dedicated anti-ship version of the Tomahawk, but that variant of the weapon was retired during the 1990s during the post-Cold War drawdown. As part of its efforts to boost its anti-surface warfare capabilities as it moves to counter new Russian and Chinese naval vessels, the U.S. Navy is awarding Raytheon a $119 million contract to integrate a new multi-mode seeker into the Tomahawk that would enable the cruise missile to engage enemy warships. "The U.S. Navy and Raytheon are working closely together to further enhance this modern missile, keeping Tomahawk in the fleet for decades to come," Capt. Mark Johnson, Naval Air Systems Command’s Tomahawk program manager, said in a statement. "No other weapon on earth can match this cruise missile's capability. Proven thousands of times in combat, Tomahawk is the nation's weapon of choice." Dave Adams, Raytheon’s Tomahawk program director, said that the new modification would afford the Navy a formidable anti-surface warfare capability. "Tomahawk's new multi-mode seeker will add even more capability to this already advanced missile," Adams said. "Tomahawk is second to none in destroying stationary land targets, and soon the weapon will defeat moving maritime targets. Enemy vessels at sea will not elude Tomahawk." Developing and fielding a substantive anti-ship capability is a very high priority for the Navy. The service is developing the new Tomahawk seeker under a Rapid Deployment Capability program to meet “urgent fleet requirements for defeating emerging maritime threats worldwide.” The Navy expects delivery of the new Tomahawk anti-ship capability no later than 2022.

The U.S. Navy Wants a New Tomahawk Missile for This Reason

Kris Osborn Security, Asia Fast-emerging near-peer threats are to blame. "The weapon is designed to engage high-value moving targets such as enemy ships. Different countries are releasing more and more capable ships. We want to enable the US Navy to have freedom of the seas and have sea control" The Pentagon and the Navy are accelerating a new maritime-specific Tomahawk missile designed to advance the weapon's ability to address fast-emerging near-peer threats and destroy enemy ships moving at sea. Unlike a typical Tomahawk missile which, over the years, has been used to successfully target and destroy "fixed" targets such as enemy bunkers, static troop locations, command-and-control as well as key infrastructure - the new Maritime Strike Tomahawk is specifically engineered with a next-generation ability to track and destroy moving targets at sea, Navy and Raytheon developers say. The Maritime Strike Tomahawk hinges on new seeker technology and faster computer processing speeds to engineer several modes wherein the Tomahawk can be re-targeted in flight to destroy moving targets in the event of unforeseen contingencies. Navy program managers have told Scout Warrior that the weapon incorporates an all-weather  seeker, coupled with mid-course in-flight target updates, will provide the missile the ability to strike a moving maritime target. Naval Air Systems Command awarded Raytheon a $120-million deal to develop the weapon as part of a fast-tracked acquisition effort, a Pentagon announcement said. "The weapon is designed to engage high-value moving targets such as enemy ships. Different countries are releasing more and more capable ships. We want to enable the US Navy to have freedom of the seas and have sea control," Chris Sprinkle, Maritime Strike Tomahawk Manager, Raytheon, told Scout Warrior in an interview. While weapons developers explain that many of the particular details of the new seeker technology are not available for discussion for security reasons, officials do say it is designed to integrate with and function alongside existing Tomahawk targeting and navigation technologies such as infrared guidance, radio frequency targeting and GPS systems. "The multi-mode seeker rides on a very capable multi-function processor.  When people talk about radar and IR systems put onto a weapon platform, they recognize that the antennas you see on the front end are useless if there is not a capable processor is on the back side," Sprinkle said.

EXPOSED: Fake Manufactured Weather causes Real Damage and shakes up markets

(GLOBALINTELHUB.COM) — 9/9/2017 As Hurricane Irma approaches US borders, investors should note the forces of the ‘invisible hand’ in nature and not only in markets.  As we explain in our groundbreaking work Splitting Pennies, the financial markets are not ‘as seen on TV’ and in fact, are the subject of constant manipulation, and this storm is no exception. Weather Modification technology is simple and has been around for a long time, starting with the use of dry ice, evolving to use of ‘supersonic booms’ and finally aerosols.  The Pentagon has technologies that are far, far, far more advanced than weather modification.   See an extensive list of weather modification patents here. The amount of evidence is overwhelming (of course they do not broadcast this on TV, but they have a profit motive, we’ll get to that) and some groups such as geoengineeringwatch.org have toiled to create a resource, summarized by this video here: Hurricane Harvey brought an abrupt and catastrophic end to the 12 year long major hurricane landfall drought in the US. Were climate engineering programs a factor in the Harvey disaster scenario? Available data has already made clear the answer is yes. How much decimation will the manipulation of Hurricane Irma inflict? The US government has been actively engaged in hurricane modification programs for a minimum of 70 years, historical documents prove this fact conclusively. Yet, the power structure controlled circles of academia (and corporate media) continue to fuel total denial of the climate engineering hurricane modification reality, this should not be a surprise. How much decimation have global geoengineering / weather warfare programs already caused? What are the primary objectives and agendas? How much worse will it get? The short video below provides verifiable data to confirm that climate engineering is a reality, and exposes some of the primary objectives.     Exposing and halting the ongoing climate engineering / weather warfare / biological warfare assault is the great imperative of our time. The best chance we have of accomplishing this monumental task is by raising an army of the awakened, by reaching a critical mass.  Is it really so hard to believe, that the military has the power to control hurricanes?  Anyone who is either in the military or who ‘does business’ with the military knows this and that compared to some of the other fun toys the military has controlling the weather is easy.  Much of the known info about weather modification comes from HAARP but HAARP has closed what they have now is far more powerful: Environmental modification techniques have been applied by the US military for more than half a century. US mathematician John von Neumann, in liaison with the US Department of Defense, started his research on weather modification in the late 1940s at the height of the Cold War and foresaw ‘forms of climatic warfare as yet unimagined’. During the Vietnam war, cloud-seeding techniques were used, starting in 1967 under Project Popeye, the objective of which was to prolong the monsoon season and block enemy supply routes along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The US military has developed advanced capabilities that enable it selectively to alter weather patterns. The technology, which is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), is an appendage of the Strategic Defense Initiative – ‘Star Wars’. From a military standpoint, HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction, operating from the outer atmosphere and capable of destabilising agricultural and ecological systems around the world. The technology clearly exists, but as it is ‘classified’ having any smoking gun evidence without a Snowden whistleblower is impossible; it’s a paradox, as evidence by CIA’s FOIA request if they are investigating us: This really is an intelligence agency, their logic is impeccable.  They cannot confirm or deny if information does or does not exist.  So let’s go with what we know. NOAA is the official US Government agency that monitors the weather, and provides official information at nhc.noaa.gov – anyone from Florida knows this URL and has gone through the agonizing wait for the next update which can mean a big change of plans. Like most of the US Government, it’s actually not ‘NOAA’ that provides us this valuable data it’s Raytheon, black ops corporate master – the largest defense contractor in the world, with 60,000 + employees and a market cap of 50 Billion.  See their product info here, and their interesting note in bold:  Owned and operated by NOAA, JPSS is an “end-to-end” system that includes sensors; spacecraft; command, control and communications; data routing; ground based processing and dissemination of weather data to users around the globe, such as NOAA’s National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center. The data provided by Suomi NPP and the JPSS satellites contribute to NASA’s study of earth climate trends. JPSS polar orbiters carry a complement of advanced imaging and sounding sensors, which increase NOAA and DoD capabilities to monitor the entire planet and produce weather and climate predictions at a much higher fidelity and frequency. These advanced capabilities enable NOAA to better fulfill its mission to protect lives and property by increasing the timeliness and accuracy of public warnings and forecasts of weather and climate events. JPSS CGS DELIVERS CRUCIAL DATA FOR NATIONAL WEATHER FORECASTS Raytheon brings more than four decades of high-availability, reliable, precision-based, command-and-control systems experience to Suomi NPP and future JPSS missions. Suomi NPP is the bridge between existing polar-orbiting satellites and the launch of JPSS-1, scheduled for 2017. Providing critical data for Earth observation, Suomi NPP data is used to generate environmental data products, such as measurements of clouds, vegetation, ocean color and land and sea surface temperatures — all significant inputs to improve weather forecasting capabilities. VALUE TO THE PUBLIC While Suomi NPP and JPSS will not prevent severe weather events such as hurricanes, tornadoes or blizzards from occurring, Raytheon’s advanced technologies enable meteorologists and forecasters to make more timely and accurate weather predictions that support NOAA’s “Weather Ready Nation” campaign and help save lives, protect property and decrease the devastating economic impacts caused by severe weather. No mention of weather modification, but Raytheon has hundreds of products that include ‘precision weapons’ and ‘Multi-Spectral Targeting Systems’ – (this is DOD speak for Ion Cannon, i.e. Tesla’s “Death Ray” ):  Raytheon’s proven radars and sensors work together to help experts see further, track longer and prepare smarter. Our Air and Missile Defense Radar stacks together like building blocks to increase detection ranges and accuracy on naval destroyers. Our VIIRS sensor — famously known for its ”Blue Marble” photo of Earth — orbits the planet to provide meteorologists with unparalleled environmental data. And our Multi-Spectral Targeting System combines lasers with infrared sensors to enable pinpoint military operations. Raytheon (RTN) is a public company trading on the NYSE.: Raytheon Company is a technology company, which specializes in defense and other government markets. The Company develops integrated products, services and solutions in various markets, including sensing; effects; command, control, communications, computers, cyber and intelligence; mission support, and cybersecurity. The Company operates through five segments: Integrated Defense Systems (IDS); Intelligence, Information and Services (IIS); Missile Systems (MS); Space and Airborne Systems (SAS), and Forcepoint. The IDS segment develops and produces sensors and mission systems. The IIS segment provides a range of technical and professional services to intelligence, defense, federal and commercial customers. The MS segment is a developer, integrator and producer of missile and combat systems. The SAS segment is engaged in the design, development and manufacture of integrated sensor and communication systems for missions. The Forcepoint segment develops cybersecurity products. Interestingly, a small uptick on Irma.  For the uninformed, a hurricane is a military operation however you look at it, in the aftermath when there’s no power, only the military (and in partnership with FEMA) has the logistic resources to swoop in and restore order.  During Hurricane Andrew strange rumors persisted about the quarantine and control of information that the Army imposed around the devastated areas.  This is a great resource with photographic evidence, and they suggested that even it may have contributed to George Bush losing the election later that year.  The government seemed helpless to do anything to battered Miami.  And it was after Andrew that Hurricane manipulation efforts went into overdrive. So why now, after so long with no major hit to Florida?  Are they gunning for Trump?  Or Trump ordered it, to distract the population from what’s really going on and as a means of control?  (Remember that the one strong power Trump has is leader of the Military, the US President has almost no political power).  We’ll never know.. but let’s look at the big picture. After World War 2 the US “Military Industrial Complex” or “Iron Triangle” (Government, Defense Contractors, Wall St.) hasn’t really had an enemy.  Hitler and Japan were real enemies, although funded and allowed to grow by US companies, the fact remains that if Hitler wasn’t stopped we’d all be speaking German and eating poor tasting frankfurters and drinking beer.  WW2 was the peak of show of industrial power and how factories could make bombs that would destroy infrastructure.  The “Marshall Plan” and other post WW2 economic plans led the intellectual Elite (who were hired by the now rich military contractors) to create several doctrines that would keep them in business with or without an enemy (with all the happiness of the 50’s they probably thought – what if there is no more Hitler?  How will we make money?  War is good for business… ) hence we have the Report from Iron Mountain MUST READ BOOK  – to explain plainly, companies like RAND corporation have created enemies most notably “Russia” and most recently “Terrorists” but their plan is so deep, they are not to rely on a single artificial enemy, so they resort to the most basic Earth element, the weather.  What does this mean?  A group of scientists hired by these corporations post WW2 (you can call them pseudo economists) created studies and reports showing that investing $1 in the Military equalled $2 in economic output.  This is the most ridiculous and twisted thinking, based on this logic if we firebomb Los Angeles we’ll be the richest economy in the world.  But remember, twisted or not – this is their doctrine.  A great example of this in practice was during the Ford days when the CIA was tasked with the job of collecting intelligence on Russia – did they pose a security threat to the United States?  The CIA found no evidence of any capability sufficient of posing even a limited threat, nor any motive or evidence of irrational intent to attack the US or any other country (and Russia has a history of never invading any country- only defending themselves).  This report was released and Donald Rumsfeld famously retorted that “Just because the CIA didn’t find any weapons doesn’t mean that they don’t exist” – Rumsfeld went on to make a fortune consulting for defense contractors.  During this period one General really believed the Russians were hiding a missile base on the dark side of the moon.  The US Military is big business, and business is good.  But threats change and the battlefield changes.  Contractors, planners, developers, and many others will make a fortune rebuilding South Florida.  And it’s a lot closer than Iraq.  And heck, is it really so bad?  Raytheon (RTN) employs 60,000 people and the US Government itself is the largest employer in the world.  People need to put food on their families (-George W Bush).   There’s a number of reasons humans would want to control the weather: To make it rain For military purposes Pollution control Terraforming (For example what they are doing in UAE) So what are the ‘known’ applications of weather modification?  Cloud Seeding, and Terraforming in UAE: Cloud seeding is the opposite of cloud busting. For one thing, it’s a real thing. The process has been replicated numerous times both in the lab and in the field and is backed up by years of peer-reviewed scientific research. For another, it impregnates clouds to instigate the precipitation process rather than magically gathering them using dark energies.  Cloud seeding is currently used all over the world—including throughout the United States, China (where it is used to clear smog in Beijing), India, and Russia—to enhance precipitation, both rain and snow, while inhibiting hail and fog. And it actually works. The UAE’s Ionizers: Tearing the Sky a New One The United Arab Emirates is a land rich in wealth but poor in precipitation. That’s why president Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan has had the nation’s top scientific minds secretly toiling for years to create a new means of weather manipulation that would work more effectively in the region’s extreme temperatures. The result: The biggest Ionic Breeze on Earth. Ionic Breeze devices are giant ionizers mounted atop tall steel poles and were built by the Swiss company, Metro Systems International. The devices generate massive ionic fields, positively charged ions ground back to the Earth while the negatively charged ions rise into the atmosphere. As they rise, the negative ions (electrons) collect particles of dust on the way up. These flecks act as seeds for ice crystal formation, much as silver iodide does except without the need for clouds. As long as the atmospheric humidity is at least 30 percent, the system supposedly works even in clear skies. In the summer of 2010, 100 such emitters were spread over five sites in the Al Ain region. During July and August alone, when the area typically receives zero rainfall, it reportedly rained on 52 separate occasions, often with gusting winds and sometimes hail. The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology monitored the project and backed the study’s findings. This could be huge for the Middle East, where water is often in short supply and desalinization plants are nine-figure investments (and another eight-figures a year to run). The ionizers reportedly only cost $10.5 million to build and $8.9 million a year to operate. $10 Million to make it rain, literally.  So what does a multi-billion dollar black budget get us in USA?  Think about the positive economic impact of Hurricanes for a moment, such as the obvious Billions in rebuilding and reconstruction projects.  But there’s also a political benefit and military benefit, the military can test their logistics and new non-lethal crowd control weapons, as well as the general population control (those evacuating south Florida are not likely to participate in right wing anti-government protests, for example).  Confuse, obfuscate, and conquer has been the mantra of the world’s leading Elite for centuries “Divide and Conquer” – and there’s no better Fog of War than a Hurricane most intelligently because 90% of the population will not believe that it’s controlled.  It’s pure genius. There’s not any proof that this is manufactured or controlled, but like many things with the government – if they have spent millions developing weather modification technology including Hurricane manipulation technology (both to create Hurricanes and divert Hurricanes or weaken them) – what are they doing with it if not using it?  Clearly, there have been strange phenomenon at play in the region over the past 20 years that are not explainable as ‘Global Warming’ – which would mean more frequent stronger storms, not a 20 year + lull. Traders from FL enjoyed the free money Lowes and Nov FCOJ pop that always comes with a slight delay after the announcement that a storm is headed for central FL where the majority of Orange Juice is grown.  But this is really a perception trade, as OJ is grown in many places around the world and the increase in Lowes purchases are not really relevant.  Also note that unlike other disasters, there are usually few human casualties in Hurricanes.  Remember even during Katrina, it was only the people who refused to evacuate that were trapped on rooftops, and even they were mostly saved.  It’s not as if the Military is ‘killing’ people – although that IS what they do during WAR (including US Citizens, not only the enemy). What is the conclusion of this information, simply that: The weather is controlled, USG owns the tech for years, this is likely organized by Raytheon (RTN) although there’s no public information to prove this (it’s classified) There can be political motivations for storms, for hitting or not hitting populated rich areas like Miami or Tampa.  There is a clear economic and military benefit to such operations as PsyOps and as logistic tests of population control, i.e. FEMA camps and other new systems to be tested Finally, there’s an elephant in the room – the bubble of bubbles.. South FL real estate.  There’s literally groups of investors waiting for the big crash to come, but no one is buying – there isn’t panic selling yet, but there is a glut of Miami real estate.  Investors are so called ‘hot money’ from foreigners who have never been to Miami but think it’s a good solid investment because real estate ‘always goes up’ – but the city of Miami is spending $500 Million to build levees and dams Dutch style around low lying areas. After this event no matter how small the damage, it will do much bigger damage to the perception of FL real estate.  Many investors will now think twice about FL as the golden ticket to USA investing success.  FL residents damaged by the storm, many of them will take their checks and move to higher, more defensible ground.  Suddenly, with one storm, the argument of Preppers in the Cumberland Plateau all makes sense.  Real Estate in the mountains just doubled in value. All the development in South FL is based on one axiom – no Hurricanes.  The same could be said about Los Angeles and Earthquakes.  But there are thousands of places in USA with reasonable property values that have no natural disasters, but they aren’t good ‘locations’ in ‘trendy’ places.  Of course if you work online or from home then it doesn’t matter where you live, so it would be logical to choose such a place vs. the over inflated FL which is a disaster zone.  Although New York City is also on the ocean, NYC is mostly built on bedrock and has elevations as high as 33 feet, comparing with Miami’s 6 feet, that’s a big difference.  FL is a big swamp mostly that was turned upside down by developers.  Unlike cities that formed by natural geo-politics and economics, Miami and most of FL is an artificial construct like Las Vegas.  The point is that it was poor investment decisions leading to a mass of capital flooding the development of FL but this will stop likely or slow down to a trickle after this storm.  A giant wall could be erected around the state but at what cost?  All of these hidden costs and risks are now exposed as realities, and we will see how the re-insurers handle failing insurers already suffering from Harvey. The positive effect on the markets is that these storms will likely pop the first and possibly the biggest real estate bubble which is the most frothy, south FL.  That’s because unlike other markets, FL doesn’t have such a robust ‘natural’ industry, as for example seen in Chicago or San Francisco.  In fact real estate is an industry in itself in FL and something like 60% of home ownership is by vacationers.  Money will flow elsewhere, into other projects, and investors will think different. The reason is simple – it’s one thing to ‘tell’ someone that the market is going to crash, or Miami is sinking into the sea, but having a devastating event happen, going through the process whatever your involvement in FL (As Jimmy Buffett says, everyone has a cousin in Miami).. this event will change your thinking about FL investing and doing business.  Miami was a happy sleepy beach town before this boom, alligators and old folks and flamingoes. Markets are manipulated, storms are too.  So what?  We live in a fake world with fake people who stare into a Fake book.  If you’ve read through this article you should congratulate yourself and take pride in knowing you are part of the real one percent, the one percent that understands how the world really works; the real global elite – the emergent intelligentcia. If you want a deeper understanding how this can impact your investing, checkout Splitting Pennies and learn how basically everything is manipulated for profit, as a business.  If in Shakespeare’s time ‘the world is a stage’ – now the world is a ‘platform’ to launch new products.  Welcome to the real New World Order.

US Army Prepares Troops Deployed In South Korea For WMD Attack

On Thursday, amid de-escalation chatter, President Trump once again insisted that US military action in North Korea remains a possibility should the North continue its threatening behavior against the US and its allies. If the US were to strike, it would be a “sad day” for the isolated North, Trump promised, adding that while “it would be great” if the issue of containing the North’s nuclear program could be resolved without military action, “nothing is inevitable.” Not peace, not war. Meanwhile, instead of remorse, Kim Jong Un has only expressed what appears to be frustration that global financial markets aren’t taking his threats more seriously, and has vowed to continue. With its neighbor and client state threatening to upset the global apple cart, China on Thursday hinted that it could support tighter UN economic sanctions, but also pushed the two sides to begin a dialogue. Meanwhile, Russia Today reports that the US military is continuing to prepare for another ground war on the continent. A recent procurement posting suggests that the US Army is seeking a contractor to train its forces in South Korea to respond to potential attacks involving a weapon of mass destruction. According to a contract proposal posted by the Army on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the Army’s 718th Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company (EOD) in South Korea should be taught to identify hazardous materials, “know how to perform basic control, containment and/or confinement operations,” and implement decontamination procedures. The contractor would be expected to provide a two-week training course, taught on-site at the US Camp Humphreys base in South Korea. The US has 25,000 troops deployed at some 80 sites across the country. In August, the Pentagon posted another proposal that hinted at heightened anxieties about an attack: Contractors were needed to build walls around four US bases, according to Russia Today. Trump’s remarks famously followed an aggressive statement from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who warned of a “massive military response” to any perceived threat from North Korea to the US or its allies. Carrying on the US’s rhetorical good cop, bad cop routine with the North. Earlier this week, the US began deploying four new THAAD missile-defense systems in Seongju County, located about 300km south of Seoul, adding to the two already there. The South Korean Defense Ministry cited an urgent need to mobilize the launchers amid growing threats from North Korea, despite widespread local protests against the deployment. The US and South Korea also conducted joint anti-submarine drills on Thursday and Friday, according to Yonhap. Joining the chorus of voices insisting on a diplomatic solution, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that a diplomacy could still work – backing away from his previous suggestion that an all-out nuclear conflict was inevitable. However, as the North is probably plotting more missile and nuclear tests, we imagine the US military presence near the DMZ will gradually build as the conflict simmers with no resolution in sight. But the biggest question facing the Korean crisis is whether, as many have speculated, North Korea will use tomorrow's holiday as a catalyst to launch the next ICBM, a move which Citi recently said would force the US to take military action in retaliation.

China Holds Military Exercise To Fend Off "Surprise Attack" Along North Korea Border

The Chinese government bristled last week after the US suggested that it might cut economic ties with any country trading with North Korea, an implicit dig at the Chinese, who are responsible for 90% of the isolated country’s foreign trade. And after suggesting that they might use their UN Security Council veto power to block more sanctions against the North – after all, the China-Russia peace map calls for the US and South Korea to stop holding military drills – the North’s neighbor and primary benefactor has reportedly conducted a military exercise of its own, according to Reuters. News of the drill arrived as US President Donald Trump is expected to press China to institute an oil embargo against North Korea, eliminating the country’s primary source of petroleum, which flows to it from China through the “Friendship Pipeline” which runs from China under the Yalu River into North Korea. China’s air force has carried out exercises near the Korean peninsula to practice defending against a “surprise attack” coming over the sea, Chinese state media reported. An anti-aircraft defense battalion carried out the exercises early on Tuesday, near the Bohai Sea, the innermost gulf of the Yellow Sea that separates China from the peninsula, an official military website www.81.cn reported. While Reuters offers scant details about the exercise and the motives behind it, it’s safe to say that China is preparing for any blowback that could occur should the US-North Korea war of words blossoms into a full-scale military conflict, as Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly warned. If the Kim regime falls, China would certainly need to defend its border with the North as the country devolves into chaos. Troops traveled to the Bohai site from central China before starting drills to fend off the “surprise attack.” “The troops’ rapid response capabilities and actual combat levels have effectively been tested,” it said. Initial reports said it was the first time “certain weapons” had been used to shoot down low-altitude targets coming over the sea, but they didn’t specify what the weapons are. China’s Defence Ministry did not immediately respond to a faxed request for comment, Reuters said. Of course, China’s exercise came days after North Korea carried out its sixth and largest nuclear test of an advanced hydrogen bomb and there is mounting concern internationally that the country plans more weapons tests, possibly of a long-range missile. As Reuters points out, South Korea and the US have also been discussing the deployment of aircraft carriers and strategic bombers to the Korean peninsula. The North’s benefactor is “extremely suspicious” of any US-backed military buildup and repeatedly expressed anger at the deployment of US THAAD missile-defense systems in South Korea. To China, the missile “defense” systems look like weapons. We imagine that, as tensions continue to simmer, China will continue to prepare for the eventuality of  US-led coalition forces advancing beyond the 38th parallel.

US Warship Shoots Down Test Ballistic Missile Off Hawaii

  • 0

One day after the latest North Korean missile launch, which was followed by a warning in the state-owned KCNA that more Pacific launches would follow, the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) said a U.S. Navy destroyer in the Pacific shot down a medium-range ballistic missile during a test off Hawai on Wednesday. Destroyer USS John Paul Jones intercepts the target with an SM-6 missile. (Missile Defense Agency photo) In the "complex missile defense flight test," the USS John Paul Jones detected and tracked a test ballistic missile that had been launched from Kaui, Hawaii, then fired one of its onboard SM-6 missiles to intercept the target in its terminal phase, the Missile Defense Agency said in a release. It said it marked the second time an SM-6 missile has successfully intercepted a medium-range ballistic missile in a test. Quoted by USA Today, MDA Director Lt. Gen. Sam Greaves said the test marked a "key milestone." "We are working closely with the fleet to develop this important capability, and this was a key milestone in giving our Aegis BMD ships an enhanced capability to defeat ballistic missiles in their terminal phase," said Missile Defense Agency Director Lt. Gen. Sam Greaves. "We will continue developing ballistic missile defense technologies to stay ahead of the threat as it evolves." According to the WashExaminer, in a similar drill last December, John Paul Jones fired two SM-6 missiles against a test medium-range ballistic missile (made by Raytheon). In a release on Wednesday morning, the company said it rushed enhanced software for the missile based on a request from the government. The SM-6, which is part of the Standard Missile family, is the only sea-based missile that can knock down ballistic missiles in their terminal phase, while also handling air and surface threats. "Earlier this year, our customer requested an enhanced capability to deal with a sophisticated medium-range ballistic missile threat," said Mike Campisi, Raytheon's SM-6 senior program director. "We did all this — the analysis, coding and testing — in seven months; a process that normally takes one to two years." The Pentagon on Tuesday confirmed that North Korea fired an intermediate-range ballistic missile near Sunan Air Base, which then flew over northern Japan before landing in the Pacific Ocean 500 nautical miles east of Japan. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un later threatened further action. "The current ballistic rocket launching drill like a real war is the first step of the military operation of the KPA in the Pacific and a meaningful prelude to containing Guam," Kim said, according to state-run media outlet KCNA. On Tuesday, the White House responded to the North Korean launch on Tuesday, saying "all options are on the table." * * * North Korea on Wednesday released images of its intermediate-range ballistic missile launch over Japan a day before. The official Korean Central News Agency reported Wednesday that the Hwasong-12, the first missile the nation has fired over Japan, was “guided” by leader Kim Jong Un and observed by senior officials. “Involved in the drill were Hwasong artillery units…tasked with striking the bases of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces located in the Pacific operational theater,” the KCNA reported. It said the launch of the intermediate-range rocket was “part of the muscle-flexing” in reaction to ongoing military drills by the U.S. and South Korea, “in disregard” for Pyongyang’s “meaningful and crucial warning.” The North sees the military exercises as a preparation for war. KCNA releases footage of the Hwasong-12 ballistic missile launch, NK's response to ongoing US-ROK drills https://t.co/EdrAnuSssM pic.twitter.com/AdlBUVImGe — NK NEWS (@nknewsorg) August 30, 2017 Kim said "more ballistic missile rocket launching drills" are "necessary" to modernize his military's strategic capabilities and that his country will continue to watch “U.S. demeanors” before it decides on future actions. The North Korean leader expressed "great satisfaction" with what he called a “meaningful prelude” to containing the U.S. territory of Guam, which he has threatened to fire four missiles toward. * * * Late on Tuesday the U.N. Security Council said it “strongly condemns” the missile test and the North’s launching of three ballistic missiles into the sea on Aug. 25. It demanded that Pyongyang “immediately cease all such actions” in a statement following an emergency meeting Tuesday. However, in a sign of de-escalation, it did not announce new sanctions. Choo Mi-ae, the head of South Korea’s ruling Democratic Party, urged Pyongyang to accept its offer of dialogue and said “such an act that threatens neighboring nations is unpardonable," the South’s Yonhap news agency reported. "If North Korea trusts South Korea's government and holds its hands, the door will open for its survival. Otherwise, it will face more serious isolation,” Choo said. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said his country will “fully and completely” abide by U.N. Security Council sanctions and would work with other council members on how best to react to the North’s latest action. “We will make a necessary response,” Wang said. China, North Korea’s most important ally, accounts for about 90% of the North’s foreign trade. Early on Thursday, British Prime Minister Theresa May called on China to put more pressure on North Korea, as she arrived in Japan for a three-day visit Wednesday. “We think that China has a role to play and we’d encourage China to do everything it can to bring pressure on North Korea to stop this,” she said. Earlier this month, the Trump administration imposed sanctions on 10 companies and six individuals from mostly China and Russia who it says helped North Korea develop its nuclear and ballistic missile programs. They were the latest in a raft of blacklists issued in recent months to punish Chinese and Russian companies that try to evade international efforts to isolate North Korea.

В США испытали мобильный боевой лазер

На военной базе «Форт-Силл» в Оклахоме (США) проведено испытаниебоевого лазера HELMTT (High Energy Laser Mobile Test Truck ),предназначенного для обнаружения и уничтожения малых беспилотников, артиллерийских снарядов и мин.Эти испытания проводились с 11 по 19 апреля, но сообщили о них только сейчас, после анализа результатов. Мощность лазера была довольно небольшой - 10 киловатт. В следующем году будет проведено испытание лазера HEL-MD мощностью 50 киловатт. К 2020 году мощность мобильной установки будет увеличена в случае успеха до ста киловатт. Разработчик мобильной лазерной установки - корпорация Boeing.Испытания лазера HELMTT были проведены в ходе учений, что свидетельствует о практически полной готовности разрабатываемой мобильной установки. 10-киловаттный лазер достаточно мощен, чтобы сбивать беспилотники и уничтожать мины. В 2013 году был испытан боевой лазер (High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator, HEL MD) мощностью 10 киловатт, который  «уничтожил более 90 минометных снарядов и несколько беспилотников».У корпорации Boeing есть также проект лазерной пушки, с помощью которой самолеты смогут поражать цели на расстоянии 35 километров и более.Американские разработчики (Textron и Northrop Grumman) боевых лазеров сегодня делают ставку на твердотельные (т/т) лазерные системы с полупроводниковой накачкой, которые заменить громоздкие и экологически небезопасные химические лазеры. У химических лазеров есть определенное преимущество - не нужна мощная энергетическая установка, так как энергию дает химическая реакция. Но т/т лазеры гораздо надежнее, легче и компактней. Они проще в обслуживании и безопаснее в эксплуатации. Лазерные диоды, используемые для накачки лазера, легко совместимы с низковольтной энергетической установкой и не требуют трансформации напряжения.Сегодня в разработке находятся лазеры с мощностью до 500 киловатт. Дальнейшее увеличение мощности вряд ли возможно, так как все эти лазеры представляют из себя многомодульные конструкции - чем больше модулей, тем больше мощность. Для мобильных лазеров это неприемлемо.Кроме того, при повышении мощности лазерного луча на поверхности объекта-цели возникает слой плазмы, который затрудняет дальнейшее проникновение луча. Все нынешние американские лазеры работают в доплазменном режиме. Чтобы успешно работать в плазменном режиме, нужно использовать так называемый импульсно- периодический режим, при котором каждая следующая «порция» изучения успевает проскочить в тот момент, когда плазменный слой от предыдущей растаял.Во всех этих проектах речь идет о силовых лазерах, которые пробивают отверстия в бензобаках цели, отрезают крылья летательных аппаратах и т.д.Такие лазеры могут применяться только на небольших расстояниях, не более десятков километров. Для того, чтобы сбивать баллистические ракеты, как это, например, предполагалось в рамках проекта «Стратегической оборонной инициативы», нужны мощности на уровне 25 мегаватт, что недостижимо по крайней мере в ближайшие 10 лет, как считают российские эксперты.Другой класс лазеров - так называемые «умные» лазеры. Они не разрушают объект, а выводят из строя электронику или ослепляют операторов и пилотов. Тут не требуется большой мощности, что резко увеличивает дальность воздействия.Иным путем идет американская компания «Raytheon», сделавшая ставку на волоконные лазерные системы. В них используется кварцевые волокна с редкоземельными металлами: неодимом, эрбием, иттербием, туллием, празеодимом. Испытан 100-киловаттный волоконный лазер, интегрированный с зенитным артиллерийским комплексом. Он эффективно сбивает беспилотники на расстоянии 1,5–2 км (В порядке военно-полевого юмора можно вспомнить, как командир эскадрильи беспилотников Новороссии ополченец Гудвин сбивал вражеские БПЛА из охотничьего ружья, летая на мотодельтаплане).В США созданы химические лазеры для применения в космическом пространстве, где экологические последствия не имеют значения.Компания «Northrop Grumman» создала боевой комплекс YAL-1на базе кислородно-йодного лазера. Этот комплекс установлен на самолете Боинг 747 и занимает практически весь объем этого громадного лайнера.Существуют и другие типы лазеров, которые периодически демонстрируются журналистам, причем подчас устраиваются инсценировки с использованием, например, динамита для создания большего эффекта.Поэтому не всем сообщениям об успешных испытаниях новых лазерных систем в США можно верить. Например, комплекс YAL-1 первоначально задумывался как стратегический для дальности в 600 километров, а на деле смог обеспечить эффективную «работу» на расстоянии не более 130 км.Однако, в прошлогоднем докладе агентства ДАРПА говорится о том, что у боевых лазеров огромные перспективы и что в скором времени оружие направленной энергии «превратит традиционные символы военной мощи в устаревший хлам на уровне пушечных ядер и кавалерии».Для России разработка боевых лазеров является самым эффективным ассиметричным ответом на высокоточное оружие НАТО. Лазер легко сожжет дорогостоящую высокоточную боеголовку, причем соотношение цена/качество  будет в пользу обороняющейся стороны. Лазерные системы могут защитить страну и от приближающихся к нашим границам ракетных комплексов потенциального противника.+Лазерные комплексы, способные бороться с ракетным нападением создают и другие страны, например, Франция, Германия, Англия, Израиль, Япония, Южная Корея, Китай.Первопроходцами в разработке боевых лазеров были советские ученые, но эти исследования были «зарезаны» в 90-е годы. О сегодняшнем состоянии подобных разработок в РФ судить довольно трудно из-за вполне понятного режима секретности. Некоторым утешением может служить тот факт, что эффективность любого лазера падает практически до нуля в пасмурную погоду или во время дождя и тумана. Именно поэтому испытания лазеров проводятся в таких регионах, как солнечная Калифорния или Персидский залив. Впрочем, у любого оружия есть свои достоинства и недостатки. Кроме того, главной ареной будущих противоборств ведущих военных держав станет космос, где не бывает, как известно, ни туманов, ни дождей.Автор: Владимир Прохватилов, Президент Фонда реальной политики (Realpolitik), эксперт Академии военных наукhttp://argumentiru.com/society/2016/05/429214
