interesting! I guess it is about open and closed systems. Modern signalling
stations beam out prodigeous amounts of electromagnetic energy which
can induce computer malfunctions elsewhere....
powered communications webs are also part of military infrastructure during a
battle or part of the telecommunications infrastructure associated with both
early warning and missile defense. One paradox of this is that certain weapons
have sub-explosive charges which can be set off by exposure to these fields if
not properly shielded. There is even a name for it - HERO - Hazardous Effects of
Radiation on Ordnance. One area of major concern is that when NATO navies get
involved in foreign excursions such as the Falklands or Iraq, the ships are
still carrying nuclear ordnance. The concern is that the explosive triggers
around this ordnance is vulnerable to induced firing.....
is sensitive and under researched but there is some documentation on previous
accidents allegedly caused by HERO under the ehading of "broken arrows." I guess
it is a case of "knowing" what is being "controlled" by relevant elements in any
system - even the ones that you have not yet considered to be part of that
Two recent aircraft 'accidents' in the same locality?
But it seems we have a more earthly suspect.
Exmouth base linked to Airbus
Air safety investigators are examining concerns that
electro-magnetic interference from a top secret US base at Exmouth
could have sparked an emergency aboard a Qantas flight from Singapore
to Perth earlier this month in which almost 70 people were injured.
It is understood the Australian Transport Safety
Bureau will look into claims that transmissions from the Harold E Holt
base caused a computer malfunction on QF72 which caused the Airbus
A330-300 to climb unexpectedly before diving twice.
The base, which was set up by the Americans at the height of the
Cold War, acts as a communications relay station for US and Australian
submarines in the southern hemisphere.
signals station is said to be one of the most powerful of its kind and
its main mast, known as Tower Zero, is taller than the Empire State
It is known that fears about the
possible effects of transmissions from the base on aircraft have been
raised before and the ATSB has now factored those concerns into the
wider incident investigation.
The ATSB said on
Tuesday night it had narrowed the cause of the accident down to a
fault in one of the Airbus’s complicated computer systems, known as
Air Data Inertial Reference Unit, though investigators admit they
remain clueless as to the specific cause.
