[quote:war eagle 41997809:MV8yMzIwMDczXzM5NTUxMjM1XzZDQTI1MTFG] [quote:Unixlike:MV8yMzIwMDczXzM5NTUxMTUwXzQ4RDRCQzRG] Space Fence does seem to be a redundancy. Another larger and longer running program is called SSN. DARPA and NASA run their own programs as well, though SSN is a conglomeration of these and other sources. It should be understood that this tracking is orbital path projection tracking, not missile defense tracking. That is handled by NORAD. Of course any naval vessel can track overhead objects in low earth orbit. [/quote] Navy has limited stand alone tracking, relies on space fence, Norad relies on space fence. Space Fence is crucial to Insurance companies insuring satellites, loyds of london will shit in their pants. Insurance will cost more than payload, unless of course, Loyds already knows TSWHTF. The fence is last line of defense for tracking incoming asteroids. [/quote]
This is mind boggling stupid, to save 14 million they are shutting down the space surveillance system that tracks objects in space.
"The U.S. Air Force will shut down its space surveillance system that tracks satellites and other orbiting objects by October 1 due to budget constraints"
Obviously they don't feel the need to track objects past October 1st.
I'd say something is up, they getting ready to bug out, and they don't want anyone to know about the incomings.
