Vom ehemaligen NATO-Bunker zum Gamerparadies?
Da rottenplaces.de del 9 novembre 2015

Zweibrücken (aw). Eine Horde Gamer verschwindet in einem ehemaligen Bunker aus Tausenden Tonnen Stahlbeton um gemeinsam eine zünftige LAN abzuhalten. Was wie eine futuristische Vision klingt, soll jetzt Realität werden. Der Fachinformatiker und Systemadministrator Fabian Krüger möchte gemeinsam mit sechs Freunden den ehemaligen NATO-Bunker in Zweibrücken (Rheinland-Pfalz) im Industriegebiet West nahe der A8 kaufen und in einen Gamertreff unter dem Motto „Der Bunker – Play. Stream. Eat. Repeat“ umwandeln. Hier sollen auf 2.200 Quadratmetern LAN-Partys, Technical/Gaming Previews, Streamings, ein Rechenzentrum, FPV, Cosplay, Paintball, Bistros, Shops, Grillplätze und Chillout-Zonen entstehen und stattfinden. Finanziert werden soll das Ganze durch Spenden aus dem Internet. Am 1. November ist die Crowdfunding-Aktion gestartet. Nun wollen die „Visionäre“ bis Ende des Monats 1,5 Millionen Euro einsammeln – eine Mammutsumme. Die Gegenleistungen für die Crowd bestehen aus mehreren Paketen, beginnend bei 5 Euro und steigend bis 7.000 Euro. Mit dem möglichen eingenommenen Geld möchte das Team das Grundstück kaufen und die Renovierung des Bunkers durchführen.

Laut des Projektleiters Krüger liegt der Kaufvertrag vor und ein Architekturbüro sowie eine Anwaltskanzlei wurden bereits beauftragt. Diese sollen bei rechtlichen und preislichen Aspekten unterstützend zur Seite stehen. Gewerbe- und Bauerlaubnis liegen noch nicht schriftlich vor. Für eine mögliche Schankerlaubnis und Bewirtung hat man bisher von der Stadt Zweibrücken und dem Zweckverband Entwicklungsgebiet Flugplatz lediglich mündliche Zusagen.Die Gesamtkosten, um aus dem Bunker ein Gamerparadies zu formen, belaufen sich auf etwa 2 Millionen Euro, der Rest soll aus Eigenmitteln finanziert werden. Neben der eigentlichen Crowdfunding-Summe hat man Stretchgoals festgelegt. Erzielt die Aktion 2,3 Millionen Euro, soll eine Virtual Reality entstehen. Bei 2,6 Millionen Euro wird ein spezieller Shuttleservice installiert, der aus 2 Humvees und einem SUV bestehen soll. Parallel dazu sollen einzelne Bunkerzonen mit speziellen Effekten für In-Games ausgestattet werden. Eine Sky-Lounge auf dem Dach des Bunkers möchte man bei 3 Millionen Euro umsetzen. Realisiert werden soll das Vorhaben im kommenden Jahr. Mit möglichen Partnern und bereits akquirierten Sponsoren hält sich das Projekt bisher allerdings zurück. Noch bis Mitte Dezember läuft die Crowdfunding-Kampagne. Bisher hat man etwas über 16.000 Euro einsammeln können. Im Internet und auf entsprechenden Gamingseiten geht die Meinung der Community so weit auseinander wie die Realisierung des Bunkerprojekts von der Vision zur Eröffnung. Während die einen begeistert von der Ideesind und auch schon kleinere Beträge gespendet haben, prognostizieren andere ein Scheitern in jeglicher Form. Alleine der Ausgang der Crowdfunding-Aktion wird den „Visionären“, Unterstützern und Kritikern ein Lachen oder Tränen ins Gesicht zaubern. Eines aber holt jeden dann gleichermaßen ein: die Realität. di Andrè Winternitz

US TRYING TO FORCE PAK INTO LIMITING SMALL TACTIAL NUKES
Da defenseworld.net del 16 ottobre 2015

Pakistani Ghauri Ballistic Missile

US is trying to limit Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal mainly deployment of small tactical weapon.
US believe securing the smaller arsenal is far harder than to secure Pakistan’s larger weapons. US is holding talks ahead of Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s visit to Washington next week, The Express Tribune reported Friday. The smaller nukes are modelled on weapons the US put in Europe during the cold war to deter Soviet invasion. Disucssions are being led by Peter Lavoy, an intelligence expert on Pakistani program and also staff of the National Security Council. But outside experts familiar with the discussions, expressed deep skepticism that Pakistan is ready to put limits on a program that is the pride of the nation, and that it regards as its only real defense against India. “A deal like the one that’s been discussed publicly is not something that’s likely to come to fruition next week,” Josh Earnest, the Pentagon press secretary, when asked about the talks was quoted as saying by the newspaper Tuesday. “But the United States and Pakistan are regularly engaged in a dialogue about the importance of nuclear security. And I would anticipate that that dialogue would include conversations between the leaders of our two countries,” he added. The central element of the proposal, according to other officials and outside experts, would be a relaxation of strict controls put on Pakistan by the Nuclear Suppliers Group, a loose affiliation of nations that tries to control the proliferation of weapons. “If Pakistan would take the actions requested by the United States, it would essentially amount to recognition of rehabilitation and would essentially amount to parole,” said George Perkovich, vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, who has maintained contacts with the Pakistani nuclear establishment. “I think it’s worth a try,” Perkovich said. “But I have my doubts that the Pakistanis are capable of doing this.” American officials have told Congress they are increasingly convinced that most of Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal is under good safeguards, with warheads separated from delivery vehicles and a series of measures in place to guard against unauthorised use. But they fear the smaller weapons are easier to steal, or would be easier to use should they fall into the hands of a rogue commander. “All it takes is one commander with secret radical sympathies, and you have a big problem,” said one former official who dealt with the issue. The message appears to have resonated; an unknown number of the tactical weapons were built, but not deployed. It is that problem that Lavoy and others are trying to forestall, along with preventing Pakistan from deploying some long-range missiles that could reach well beyond India. But American leverage has been hard to find. Unlike Iran, Pakistan never signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, the international agreement that prohibits nations, except for existing declared nuclear states like the United States, from possessing a nuclear arsenal. Pakistan is not alone in that distinction: India and Israel also have not signed. Ordinarily, any country’s refusal to sign the treaty would preclude American nuclear cooperation. So Pakistani officials remain angry with the American decision to enter an agreement with India in 2005 allowing India to buy civil nuclear technology, even though it remains outside the treaty and put no limits on its nuclear programme. Under that agreement, India’s nuclear infrastructure was split with a civilian program that is under international inspection, and a military programme that is not. Pakistani officials have demanded the same arrangement. That does not appear to be on the table. Instead, the United States is exploring ways to relax restrictions on nuclear-related technology to Pakistan, perhaps with a long-term goal of allowing the country to join the Nuclear Suppliers Group, which regulates the sale of the technology. That would be largely symbolic: Pakistan manages to import or make what it needs for its nuclear arsenal, and China has already broken ground on a $9.6 billion nuclear power complex in Karachi. PM Nawaz presided over the ceremony.

 

 

The History Of The Bran Castle In Transylvania, Romania
Da thedockyards.com del 5 ottobre 2015

The Bran Castle (known in German as Törzburg) is one of the most reputed touristic attractions of Romania and also one of the most mesmerising medieval strongholds in Transylvania. It is located in the proximity of a former significant Transylvanian Saxon urban center, namely Kronstadt (Romanian: Brașov) in the historical region of Burzenland (Romanian: Țara Bârsei), south-eastern Transylvania. The marvellous medieval construction stands at a 760 m altitude, on a hill top surrounded on all sides by a rocky landscape and a thick forest. Its history starts in the 13th century when the Teutonic Knights were given right by the King of Hungary to build a motte-and-bailey fortification that was made mostly of wood and centred around a stone keep. The wooden fort was initially named ‘Dietrichstein’ and was meant as a means of observation and protection against foreign invaders that could trespass in Transylvania, at the time constituent part of the Kingdom of Hungary. The initial motte-and-bailey structure was destroyed by the Mongols in 1242 during the Mongol Invasion. Since the order of the Teutonic Knights was evicted from the region several decades later by the King of Hungary (fearing that they might become a truly imposant military force in the region without willing to obey to him anymore), the German colonists they have brought with them known as the Transylvanian Saxons (stemming from various regions of present day Germany such as Rhineland, Bavaria or Thuringia), had been given the privilege to build another fortification at their own cost and labour. It is known that during the 15th century the castle was used as a defensive strategic position against the Ottoman Empire and that it subsequently became a trading post between the Principalities of Transylvania and Wallachia in the upcoming centuries. Although the castle is linked to the legend of Dracula given Bram Stoker’s exaggerated artistic license in the eponymous novel, Vlad Țepeș (the real historical character who was the Prince of Wallachia during the 15th century, from which Stoker inspired his novel) passed only a few times in the vicinity of the citadel. Bran remained a key military strategic position at the crossroads of the Kingdom of Hungary, the Principality of Moldavia and the Principality of Wallachia up until the 18th century. Currently, the castle is one of the most well known touristic attractions of Romania and features a collection of furnitures and art pieces of Queen Marie of Romania. Near the castle there’s an annual open-air museum exhibiting traditional Romanian folk costumes and rural structures (such as barns or cottages).

South Korea To Develop 800 Km Ballistic Missiles To Target North’s Nuclear Facilities
Da defenseworld.net del 1 ottobre 2015

South Korea in a move to counter North Korea’s advancing nuclear and a missile capability is insistent to finish the development of ballistic missiles with range of 800 kilometers by 2017.

"The Agency for Defense Development has proposed the year 2017 as the time frame for the extension of its ballistic missiles' range in a five-year development plan," Yonhap news agency quoted an unnamed government official as saying Wednesday.

“South Korea plans to extend the maximum range of the military’s ballistic missiles from the current 500 Km to 800 Km,” another official said.

The military is "aiming at completing the development of the 800-km ballistic missiles by 2017 and deploying them for combat posture," the official added. Other military officials indicated the development would mean South Korea will be able to hit any place in North Korea from any point of its choosing in the country. South Korea is currently equipped with the ballistic missile Hyunmoo-2B, which has the longest range of 500 km and successfully went through a test-firing in early June.

 

Russia Test Fires SSC X-8 Cruise Missile
Da defenseworld.net del 28 settembre 2015

Kh-55, air-launched strategic cruise missile

Russia has test fired a new ground-launched SSC-X-8 cruise missile this month, which an anonymous Obama administration official has claimed is a violation of the 1987 Intermediate- Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty. Russia launched the missile on Sept. 2. The cruise missile did not fly beyond the 300-mile range limit for an INF-banned missile, Obama administration defense and security officials were quoted as saying by Washington Free Beacon today. The missile’s assessed range is between 300 miles and 3,400 miles. It is the distance covered under the INF treaty, which banned an entire class of intermediate-range missiles, the US intelligence analysts reported. SSC-X-8 test is as a “nuclear profile,” that means the weapon is part of Russia’s strategic nuclear forces, the officials added. The 1987 missile flight test prompted the US administration, which was backed by US intelligence agencies, to declare the system a breach of the INF treaty. Following the President Obama’s meet in New York with Vladimir Putin, the first unofficial identification of the suspect missile was disclosed. Discussion between the two presidents on Monday are expected to focus on increasing Russian military operations in Syria and Ukraine. White House officials would not say whether the president would raise the SSC-X-8 flight test and other INF noncompliance issues with Putin on the sidelines of the annual U.N. General Assembly meeting. The cruise missile test is the latest sign from Moscow that it has no plans to return to compliance with the INF treaty despite US efforts in talks held since May 2013. “It is time for the White House to get out of the way of the Defense Department so that it can field military responses to this treaty violation,” Rogers said.

 

DF-41 ICBM mobile battery begin official combat deterrence patrol
Da defence-blog.com del 21 agosto 2015

China conducted a flight test this month of its newest long-range missile that U.S. intelligence agencies say lofted two independently-targeted simulated nuclear warheads, according to defense officials. The launch of the DF-41 road-mobile missile Aug. 6 was the fourth time the new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) has been test-fired in three years, and indicates that the weapon capable of hitting U.S. cities with nuclear warheads is nearing deployment.

The DF-41, with a range of between 6,835 miles and 7,456 miles, is viewed by the Pentagon as Beijing’s most potent nuclear missile and one of several new long-range missiles in development or being deployed.

As with earlier DF-41 flight tests, Pentagon spokesmen had no direct comment. A defense official, however, told the Washington Free Beacon: “We do not comment on PRC weapons tests but we do monitor Chinese military modernization carefully.”

The Pentagon has said it expects the new missile to become operational as early as this year. Deployment of the DF-41 also could coincide with China’s first patrols, slated to begin this year, of submarines armed with nuclear-tipped JL-2 missiles. According to sources in China citing several witnesses, an ICBM was successfully tested for the fourth time on August 5 2015. If the reports are accurate, this means that People’s Liberation Army (PLA or Chinese Army) DF-41 new generation intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) continues its development and was tested for the fourth time following tests in July 2012, December 2013 and December 2014

Bunkeranlage GRANIT Typ 1 Großenhain
Da rottenplaces.de del 30 luglio 2015

Der Großenhainer Flugplatz nahm seinen Betrieb 1913 auf und gehörte mit seinen 60 Hektar zu den größten der deutschen Armee. 1914 wurde die erste Flugzeughalle fertig gestellt, kurze Zeit später traf die erste Fliegerkompanie zur Stationierung in Großenhain ein. 1920 wurde der Reichsfliegerhorst mit dem Versailler Vertrag aufgelöst. Auf einem Teil des Areals errichtete man eine Papierfabrik. 1934 wurde mit dem erneuten Aufbau eines modernen Flugplatzes begonnen, der Betrieb startete 1936. Zu Kriegsende betrug die Länge der Start- und Landebahn 1.375 Meter.

Die sowjetischen Streitkräfte besetzten den Flughafen 1945 und bauten diesen weiter aus. Die Landebahn wurde auf eine Länge von 2.440 Meter erweitert. Zusätzlich errichteten die Sowjets 40 erdüberdeckte Bodendeckungen – so genannte Shelter – sowie zwei Bunker des Typs GRANIT zur Zwischenlagerung von Sonderwaffen. Die aus mehreren, halbkreisförmigen und zu einer Röhre zusammengesetzten Fertigteilen bestehenden Fragmente entstanden von 1972 bis 1974. Damit eine nutzbare Grundfläche entstehen konnte, betonierte man die Röhre im unteren Drittel aus. Abgeschlossen wurde das Bauwerk durch Drucktore mit einer Spezialverriegelung. Als die sowjetischen Luftstreitkräfte 1993 vom Flugplatz Großenhain abzogen, erfolgte die Rückgabe der Liegenschaft. 2004 wurden die Bunker wieder in den Orignalzustand versetzt und unter Denkmalschutz gestellt. Heute sind beide Bunker bei entsprechend angekündigten Terminen, oder Absprache zu besichtigen – Bunker 1 beherbergt die Ausstellung zur Geschichte des Flugplatzes Großenhain von 1913 bis zur Gegenwart und Bunker 2 den Sonderfunkstandort der Amateurfunker Großenhain. In der Ausstellung wird die ehemalige Verwendung und genaue Lage von Objekten sowie verschiedene Abläufe der militärischen Nutzung an einem großen Geländemodell zum Zeitpunkt des Jahres 1993 anschaulich präsentiert.

Die 1993 von den sowjetischen Streitkräften vor ihrem Abzug aufgestellte Abschieds-Stele stand ursprünglich auf der Trasse der Ortsumgehung der B98 und zeigte große Verwitterungsspuren. Heute steht sie, detailgetreu aufbereitet, am Standort der Flugplatzausstellung.  di Abrè Winternitz

 

 

Army revisits troposcatter communications technology as alternative to long-range SATCOM
Da militaryaerospace.com del 26 luglio 2015

ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md., 26 July 2013. U.S. Army researchers are reaching out to industry for fresh ideas on tropospheric scatter (troposcatter) technologies for fixed-site and on-themove long-range military communications as an alternative to satellite communications (SATCOM).

Troposcatter communications transmits and receives microwave signals at beyond-line-of-sight distances as far as 200 miles without SATCOM by bouncing radio signals off layers of the Earth's atmosphere. The Army Contracting Command at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., issued a request for information (W15P7T-13-R-A430) this week about RF and microwave troposcatter technologies for beyond light-of-sight telecommunications.

Troposcatter communications mode scatters radio waves as they pass through upper layers of Earth's lowest layer of atmosphere, called the troposphere, where most of the planet's water vapor resides. Army officials issued the RFI on behalf of the Army Communications Electronics Research & Development Engineering Center (CERDEC), Space & Terrestrial Communications Directorate (S&TCD) at Aberdeen Proving Ground. Troposcatter communications transmit radio signals in tight beams aimed at the tropopause located midway between the transmitter and receiver sites. The tropopause is the boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere. While traditional line-of-sight microwave communications use frequencies between 12 and 19 GHz, troposcatter communications use frequencies around 2 GHz. Only a small portion of troposcatter radio waves can be received, so large high-gain dish antennas are necessary.

Military forces have been using troposcatter communications in various forms since the 1960s to transmit voice and data without the use of satellites or highfrequency (HF) radio signals. HF radio offers global coverage without satellites, but is low bandwidth and sometimes unreliable. One of the best-known U.S. military troposcatter communications systems was the Cold War-era Tri-Services Tactical Communications Program (TRI-TAC), a strategic command, control, communications, and intelligence (C3I) system abandoned in 2002 that fielded tactical and multichannel systems. The AN/TYC-39 message switch component of TRI-TAC provided secure, automatic switching of traffic using troposcatter communications, as well as multichannel line-of-sight communications and SATCOM. Troposcatter communications typically are secure because their radio waves are difficult for enemies to intercept, hence their interest for military communications. Among the companies that have been involved in troposcatter communications are General Dynamics, Raytheon Co., Microwave Radio Communications (MRC), Lockheed Martin Corp., ITT Exelis, and Comtech. Army researchers are interested in troposcatter communications technology for worldwide operation that is reliable in a wide variety of environmental conditions, reduces or eliminates the need for communications relay sites, works in rugged terrain, automatically adjusts data rates due to atmospheric changes, communicates IP voice, data messaging, and multimedia services simultaneously over ranges of at least 25 miles, has an easy-to-use graphic user interface, and that is small, lightweight, and man-portable. Army officials say that although this is not a request for proposals, they will use the information they gain from this RFI in developing an acquisition strategy, work statements, or performance specifications.

Companies interested should email information to the Army's Kevin Chin no later than 23 Aug. 2013 at Kevin.w.Chin.civ@mail.mil.

For questions or concerns contact the Army's Michael Levy by phone at 443-861- 4615, or by email at michael.w.levy7.civ@mail.mil.

 

 

US To Test Minuteman III Inter Continental Ballistic Missile This Sunday
Da defenseworld.net del 19 maggio 2015

US Air Force Global Strike Command will test launch unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Sunday at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Lompoc Record reported Today.

The Air Force Global Strike Command, unarmed missile will be launched to validate and verify the effectiveness, readiness and accuracy of the weapon system. “The launch process requires tremendous teamwork and involves months of preparation,” said Col. Keith Balts, 30th Space Wing commander, who is the launch decision authority. “The data gained from these launches allows us to maintain a high readiness capability and ensures operational effectiveness of the most powerful weapons in the nation's arsenal.” Balts added. The earlier ICBM test launch from VAFB occurred March 27. This will be the third such test from VAFB this year.

 

 

India Tests Mobile Canister Version of Agni Nuclear-capable Ballistic Missile
Da defenseworld.net del 31 gennaio 2015

India test-fired its nuclear capable ballistic missile ‘Agni-5', which can strike targets over 5,000 km and can carry a nuclear warhead of over one tonne, from a launch centre in the country’s east coast.

Today’s launch from a mobile canister means the missile is a step closer to deployment with the Indian Army’s missile forces command. Indian media reported that the missile could strike targets “deep inside China” if launched from the line of control, the unofficial border between the two countries. The three-stage, solid-propellant missile was test-fired from a mobile launcher from the launch complex-4 of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at about 8.06 hours," launch project chief M V K V Prasad was quoted by Indian news agencies as saying.

"The Inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM), witnessed a flawless 'auto launch' and detailed results will be known after all data retrieved from different radars and network systems", Prasad told agencies.

The launch was the third developmental trial of the long-range missile. The first test was conducted on 19 April, 2012 and the second test on 15 September, 2013 from the same base. The Agni-5 missile is about 17 meters long, 2 metres wide and has a launch weight of around 50 tonnes. The missile can carry a nuclear warhead of more than one tonne. The one ‘Agni-5', is reported to have some new technologies in terms of navigation and guidance, warhead and engine compared to its older versions.

 

Einladung zum Fotoshooting im Nato-Bunker Kindsbach am
Da blogs.rhrk.uni-kl.de del 30 gennaio 2015
Die Foto-AG konnte nochmal einen Foto-Termin am ehemaligen Nato-Bunker in Kindsbach organisieren und es sind noch Plätze frei. Wir treffen uns am 21.2.2015 10 Uhr vor dem Bunker (Adresse: Kindsbach, Am Wingertshübel 20, Eingang 4 der Anlage).

Wer mag, kann sich gern bei mir (kilian@sowi.uni-kl.de) melden und auf eine Anmeldeliste setzen lassen. Die Teilnahmegebühr beträgt p.P. 10 Euro und ist vorher zu entrichten (Überweisung, Paypal oder persönliche Bezahlung bei mir an der TU Kaiserslautern).

Einige Hinweise, die man vor der Buchung der Tour noch wissen und berücksichtigen sollte:

  1. 1. Die Begehung der Anlage erfolgt auf eigene Gefahr, es besteht keinerlei Versicherungsschutz. Das ist besonders zu beachten bei persönlichen Erkundungen außerhalb der Führung in Bereichen der Anlage, die ich selbst Jahrelang nicht gesehen habe und über deren Zustand nichts bekannt ist. WER DAMIT NICHT EINVERSTANDEN IST DARF NICHT TEILNEHMEN.
  2. 2. Es bleibt alles so, wie es ist. Es darf nichts demontiert, verändert oder beschädigt werden!
  3. 3. Die Beleuchtung (die eh nur knapp bemessen ist) kann möglicherweise ausfallen (zumindest teilweise). TASCHENLAMPEN müssen mitgeführt werden!
  4. 4. Der Bunker ist nicht für Schimmelallergiker geeignet. Die Belastung durch Schimmelsporen ist nicht gesundheitsproblematisch, wenn man dort nicht wohnt oder arbeitet, aber ganz ohne geht es in solchen Anlagen nicht.
  5. Da man sich in der Anlage verlaufen kann und aus Sicherheitsgründen sollten bei der privaten Tour immer mind. 2 Personen zusammen sein.
  6. Wer zu spät kommt, kann nicht mehr teilnehmen (da wir eine Liste Anfertigen, die die Besucher registriert. So können wir am Ende sicherstellen, dass auch alle wieder aus dem Bunker sind und keiner versehentlich eingeschlossen wird.

Anbei noch ein paar weiterführende Hinweise zum Bunker:

Old Dutch Bunker Transformed into Modern Bed and Breakfast
Da mymodernmet.com del 18 gennaio 2015

By Kelcee Griffis This 200-year-old bunker was transformed into a modern bed and breakfast that blends military sensibility with eclectic comforts while honoring the rich history of the Netherlands. Dutch architectural firm B-ILD repurposed the Fort Buren bunker into a one-room “Holiday House.” Fort Buren was part of a defense network of bunkers and trenches designed to be flooded in case of enemy attack. The fortifications stood throughout the Netherlands’ neutrality in World War I and the country’s eventual involvement in World War II. The entrance to the bunker stands in the middle of a sweeping cow field, where the understated gray concrete structure peeks out of a grassy hillside. Next to it stands a newly built wooden deck with patio furniture – a serene place for relaxation in the middle of a former war zone. The steel-reinforced walls that used to shield soldiers from mortar shells now shelter guests from the Netherlands’ often-inclement weather. Four bunk beds now line the steel-reinforced concrete walls, and florescent lighting illuminates the low ceilings and otherwise dim interior. The bunker also offers the conveniences of plumbing, running water and a small kitchen.
