Re: USAF and Obama shutting down Space Fence Oct 1
Look at all the things that need to be in place by Oct. 1st

I can't put a link as I will get banned.

15,000 Russians in Baltimore by October 1st.

82% of our combat forces and their supply elements out of CONUS by October 1st.

FEMA purchase orders for over $14.2 million for MREs and heater meals to be delivered to Region III by October 1st.

FEMA purchase orders for 22 million pouches of emergency water to be delivered to region III by October 1st.

FEMA purchase orders for $13.6 million for MREs and heater meals to be delivered to Austin by October 1st.

Nine-week training course for UN Peacekeepers in CONUS to learn Urban Warfare, English, and US weapons systems beginning 4th week of July for 386,000 troops to be completed by October 1st.

$11 million in antibiotics to be delivered to FEMA region III by October 1st ordered by CDC.

World Health Organization held second emergency meeting in its history to discuss MERs coronavirus. Determined a vaccine MUST be in place by October 1st.

2800 MRAPs must be delivered to DHS by October 1st.

No leave will be allowed for US military from September 28th thru November 5th.

NORCOMM yearly training for civil unrest suspended until September 27th. To be performed in northeast coastal areas.

Date for release of QE3 report moved to October 16th.

All DHS agents MUST qualify with sidearm, shotgun and AR 15 by September 28th. No mention of yearly less lethal qualification.

Sporadic testing of GPS and Communications satellites is coordinated for the first time with a testing date of September 29th.

POTUS mandates to FEMA and DHS concerning support for metropolitan communities dealing with the extreme climate change MUST be complete by October 1st. These mandates were issued during the last three weeks.

Over 300 school systems in the US have determined they need three-day kits for each school AND three-day kits for each student to take with them. All deliveries are scheduled for the month of September.

All National Guard units will complete riot control and disaster assistance training during this years annual two week training. All units MUST have their training complete by September 30th.

Daily testing of the Emergency Broadcast System to begin on September 25th and run thru October 2nd.

Eastern-based Coast Guard units to perform massive group training, usually performed in the Gulf, in the Virginia and Delaware areas. This is a 10-day training mission to begin September 26th.

A sidenote to ponder: For the first time in the history of the United Nations, the Secretary General addresses the Assembly, a speech that was broadcast live to over 60 nations, to inform the assembly that while we are dealing with what appears to be two global crises -- extreme climate change and financial downturns -- the governments of the world are working together to resolve the issues before they reach catastrophic proportions. In other words, he addresses the Assembly and the world just to say everything is going to be okay.

By saying the system is shut down, they avoid having to explain why their satellites are being destroyed and or being incapacitated due to a) physical impacts, b) radiation impacts, c) solar wind, d) other cosmic unknown.

16M was probably the cost of the electric power to run the thing and a few employees to rune it.

What? The system isn't about monitoring for incoming asteroids or anything, it's for monitoring satellites in low earth orbit and alerting satellite operators when necessary to avoid collisions. The radar being shut down is not the only system that conducts the monitoring and the remaining systems will be picking up the slack while a replacement system is being built. The only catch is this; the replacement system is on hold pending review as well. Hopefully they'll get it back on track soon but in the meantime we're not flying blind, we're just flying with fewer sensors doing the monitoring of satellites and orbital debris.

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.

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.

And BINGO. Hats off to OP for informed answers based on solid info. We're talking RANGE of awareness of potential earth threats, and ability to respond(?) at that distance.

Re: USAF and Obama shutting down Space Fence Oct 1
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.

This has nothing at all to do with "earth threats." It's used for monitoring satellites in orbit, it doesn't hunt for "earth threats" in deep space. Their idea of "deep space" with this system is closer to us than geosynchronous orbit.
