So many people sent me versions of this story, that I have to wonder what''s up. Here's two versions of the story:

FAA warns pilots of massive GPS outages caused by secret weapon tests

So what's going on here?

Well, permit my to indulge in our usual geostationary orbital speculation. While there have also been stories that this test has been cancelled, it's the story itself that intrigues, for behind it is the implicit claim that (1) the USA has a top secret weapon, (2) it intended to test it, and (3) the test would interfere in some fashion with Global Positioning data upon which modern air traffic depends, data that in turn comes from satellites.

This, I suspect, was the real message behind the test.


Yes, I said message. In case you haven't noticed, the USA and Russia have been playing an old Cold War game, showing off their newest weapons systems capabilities to each other. It began with the Russian intervention in Syria, and its use of cruise missiles fired from Russian Warships in the Caspian Sea. The missiles reached their targets, of course, and obliterated them. More importantly still, Russia has unvailed the capabilties of its new land-based ICBM, a MIRVed monster that, unlike the ICBMs of yesteryear, is a weapon whose warheads are designed to strike anywhere on Earth, using any trajectory, eliminating the old "over the Arctic pole" trajectories. Moreover, it is claimed that these warheads can be re-targeted and re-directed in flight, and can thus change course. In other words, the new Russian ICBM is any missile-defense systems engineer's worst nightmare. And one can only presume the Russians have added typical counter-measures to the weapon: dummy warheads and so on.

We also saw Russian messages being sent in the recent USS Donald Cook incidents, and with the Russian demonstration of blackout and jamming capability over Syria.

But any such system is likely to depend on real-time data from the Russian GPS system, and hence, the ability to distort or otherwise interfere in that data could dramatically impair the performance of Russia's new ICBM. It won't do much good if, for example, a warhead targeted for Washington lands in Havana or Beijing or in the desert between Winnemuca and Ely Nevada based on faulty GPS distorted data.

So whatever may be going on(or not going on) with this story, I suspect the real intended recipients of the message were in Moscow, and that they read it loudly, and clearly. If two can play the covert operations game, two can also play the soft warfare electronic warfare game.

The Russian response to the message remains to be seen.

See you on the flip side...

    Similar outages / NOTAMS actually have been coming out for several years – also centered out of the New Mexico area. Really, this is not too surprising for aviators.

    I REGULARLY get emails that contain information like this:

    FAA Safety Team | Safer Skies Through Education

    FLIGHT ADVISORY GPS Interference Testing October 01-31, 2015 Alamogordo, NM.
    Notice Number: NOTC6210

    GPS Interference Testing
    WSMR GPS 15-11
    01 – 31 October 2015
    Alamogordo, NM.

    I think someone unaware of the frequencies of these kinds of tests just picked it up and tried to make a sensation of it.

    I believe that “the U.S. military is planning a series of tests near the West Coast that will result in GPS outages all across the area” is a result of Russia being liable to just jam the hell out of ALL frequencies in the case of serious conflict – including GPS frequencies. Russia has noted how GPS has wormed its way into all sorts of military and civilian application. Since Russia does not have the sheer number of military assets the US does, a great equalizer is to simply disable all frequencies – including GPS frequencies.

    The US has probably noted Russia noticing this vulnerability, and wants to test-out what goes-on under widespread GPS denial.

    A second part of this ‘test’ probably has to do with new precision-hit weapons that use miniaturized, more-accurate Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) for guidance rather than GPS. The weapons likely use GPS when it is available, so the military would like to know how they react to jamming or even spoofing.

    Speaking of GPS spoofing, part of this testing could be a response to the downing of the stealthy RQ-180 spy-drone over Iran and the possible downing of a Northrup Grumman RQ-4 spy-drone over the Crimea. Both were likely due to GPS spoofing, so the military probably wants to test their drones under GPS spoofing. So, warn civil aviation that GPS will be unavailable…

    (I must admit that this ‘testing’ announcement – like ‘drill’ announcements – sends up a minor red flag, due to prior false flags occurring at these times…)

    The whole GPS thing was militarized from the get-go. So the enemy isn’t as dumbed down as the GMO eating sheeple. Undoubtedly there systems in place that will get the job done in highly hostile environments.
    In spy vs spy terrains, it’s all written in comic book style.
    Nothing gets inked, until the squids already exposed.

    Astrolabes, Sextants, Magnetic Compass for navigation anyone. How about good old printed paper charts-maps on aircraft, seacraft, landvehicles back to the future the old ways were more secure.

    The foregoing issues highlight a further, over-arching problem, which relates to the need for an easily-deployable system capable of jamming, on a controllable, localized level, enemy GPS receivers while predicting areas in which friendly GPS receivers may be used safely. More particularly, the latter problem requires the ability to identify jamming effects caused by both enemy GPS jammers and friendly GPS jammers.

    Selective GPS denial system
    US Patent No. 7574168 B2

    A selective GPS denial system includes a plurality of GPS deniers for disrupting reliable operation of GPS receivers, a plurality of remote sensor interfaces, a gateway, and a computer management system. Each of the plurality of GPS deniers may be selectively activated. Each remote sensor interface is associated with a respective GPS denier such that each remote sensor interface effectuates the activation of the respective GPS denier. The plurality of remote sensor interfaces and the gateway are communication nodes in an ad hoc wireless network. The gateway communicates instructions to one or more of the plurality of remote sensor interfaces to selectively activate the GPS denier respectively associated therewith. The computer management system is disposed in communication with the gateway and controls the instructions communicated by the gateway, thereby selectively controlling which GPS deniers are activated.

    I’ve no idea if this is related. However, the epicenter of the GPS test has been riddled with EQ swarms. Very small.. But these swarms are indicative of magma starting to rise. Goto the USGS page and do a 7 day all magnitudes. Note the serious activity just South of Palm Desert.

    • SoCal G on June 17, 2016 at 4:13 pm

      The “testing” started on June 9th and on June 10th at 1:05am what do we have? A 5.2 EQ just up the road a apiece from me in Borrego Springs followed by a 3.2 aftershock at 1:33am.

      Coincidence? Maybe.

      I will say having been born, raised and still living in the same county here, it was an odd EQ and I have experienced many of them up to 7.0

    I suspect what we really have here is the public and all too obvious fear porn used as a cover for the global New World Odor crowd. There is most likely a great deal more cooperation between the East and the West than they would like to have known in this respect. After all, if your intention, as stated on the Georgia Guidestones, is to reduce the worlds population by 90-95%, then global warfare fits the bill nicely. Add to that the fact that they have weaponized just about everything else: food, medicine, economics, money, religion, immigration, pollution, the very air you breathe, and the water you drink, you name it.
    The slow kill isn’t working fast enough, so now it’s time to ratchet up the global conflict into a world wide war which will see our numbers reduced to a fraction of what they are now. Since preparations have long been made for their survival, not ours, they are free to loose this upon the world at what they deem to be the appropriate time.
    The real conflict between the “breakaway civilization” and the rest of humanity is what is waiting in the wings. Everything else is just distraction to prevent those not in that “elite” crowd from realizing just what is really coming. Putin has already said as much and others have warned of the same thing.
    The worlds true enemy isn’t the Russians or the Chinese or the Americans or any other nation, it’s the globalists/industrialists/
    bankers who seek the domination of the planet and are proceeding about it in as many ways as possible, which includes the latest “secret” trade agreements designed to give them authority over sovereign nations. Waiting in the wings is the Vatican, positioning itself to become the worlds moral authority and one world religion.
    Events, written of in ancient texts, are unfolding before our eyes at an accelerated pace. It has been an extremely long term goal and agenda and it is nearing its completion. Once they have achieved the disarmament of the worlds citizenry it will be unleashed.

      IMO disarming the world’s citizenry is not even on the table, what do they care if you have a gun when they have drones that can take you out from anywhere? Unless the world’s citizenry can access space assets they don’t have a chance of defending themselves against a government intent on harming them. Depending on ones guns is a very false sense of security.

      • Nookeeler Weapons on June 17, 2016 at 12:11 pm

        Lois, if the destruction of the population is the intent, then why would you need space assets when the parasite class could use chemical warfare, genetically targeted viruses, or nookeeler bombs and radioactive fallout? The omnipresent “lone-wolf(nut)” terrorist would be a good cut-out for any of those methods. As for guns and the “very false sense of security” they provide, that, in and of itself, may be the issue. Consider the African nations that have the AK-47 as a symbol of resistance and revolution on their national flag or coat of arms. The parasites place great emphasis on eliminating from the mind even the notion of defiance or non-compliance to preempt the act itself. The most dangerous weapon is the fighting spirit.
