|Science/Technology / View Of A Us Plane That Can Launch Nuclear Attacks by Jeffreyc: 7:21pm On Mar 31, 2018|
If Russia aimed a long range missile like the "Satan 2" it just tested or North Korea suddenly targeted the headquarters of the US nuclear arsenal, top commanders would have a small window to get to safety.
But the US is ready for such a scenario and the four-star general tasked with executing the US response to a nuclear strike would take to the air within minutes. He'd be able to carry out the President's orders and launch a nuclear attack in response from the safety of a specially equipped jet, known as the "Doomsday" plane.
"I have a certain amount of minutes to get on that plane and for that plane to get off and to a safe distance before a nuclear weapon went off here," John Hyten, the head of US Strategic Command, told CNN in an exclusive interview earlier this month from his headquarters at Offutt Air Force Base in eastern Nebraska.
At the base a countdown clock is always visible to Hyten telling him how many minutes away an incoming missile would be from impact, as well as how much time he has to be rushed from his underground battle deck to the surface and a vehicle that would whisk him to a nearby tarmac where the all-important plane would be waiting.
"The roads will open up on this base and I'll go beeline straight for the runway," Hyten said.
The aircraft, a Navy E-6B which has the airframe of a Boeing 737, operates as a full command and control facility in the air where Hyten, or one of his senior officers can carry out the President's orders if this part of Nebraska comes under attack.
"I look at this jet and the whole nuclear enterprise really as this is America's insurance policy," Brigadier Gen. Gregory Bowen, deputy director of global operations at Strategic Command, told CNN during a tour on board the plane. "This ensures our survival as a nation if you will."
With a small Navy flight crew, the command deck on the plane, while much smaller than the Global Operations Center on base, has the ability to operate in just the same way from the air.
"We know on this jet where the President is, all the presidential successors, the chairman [of the Joint Chiefs of Staff], the secretary of defense, everybody that is important we track their location," Bowen said.
In addition to a nuclear strike adviser, there is also a meteorological adviser on board constantly studying current weather patterns around the world to understand where any nuclear fallout is drifting so that US bombers can be notified.

The plane, which can be refueled in the air allowing it to remain in flight for days, also has antennas that can communicate with US submarines and transmit orders and messages to them without having to land.
And perhaps most importantly, the plane also has a control panel that can launch US intercontinental ballistic missiles if the worst case scenario is playing out on the ground.
"If they were struck and all of the people down in the launch control centers were dead or unable to communicate, we can actually directly talk to the missile silos with this gear and launch the missiles ourselves," Bowen said.
During the Cold War, the plane was in the air almost 24/7 just in case an unforeseen nuclear exchange with the Soviet Union happened. With today's threat from North Korea, Russia and elsewhere, the plane is still regularly airborne to train for any possibility.
But despite the frequency of the exercises what the plane and the overall mission of Strategic Command represents has never become routine to Hyten, who is well aware of the gravity of what's at stake.
What the massive US military budget pays for

"The first time I did it we set off on the runway and we take off, and I look down and there's my house," Hyten said. "And then I realized there's my wife and I'm now in a safe place, but if this was the real world that would be the last time I ever saw her."
But the plane's unique ability to execute a nuclear war from thousands of feet above the ground sends a strong message to hostile nations.
"We have to make sure that we as the United States have the capability and we show the capability to our potential adversaries that should they decide they want to strike us, the cost of doing that is going to be unbearable," Bowen said.
In the end, the plane and the entire US nuclear missile program are about keeping threatening behavior at bay before it boils over.
"That's part of what this jet does, it is deterrence in its simplest form," Bowen said. "If you shoot at us, your country is going to go away. It's that simple."

|Crime / 8 Ways Banks Can Provide Watertight Security Against Armed Robberies by Jeffreyc: 3:39pm On Apr 28, 2017|
1. Plant a mole inside the bank
The first thing banks need to do if they are serious about fighting incessant attacks in their bank branches is to put somebody as a mole to monitor activities. He may disguise as a staff, a cleaner, or a messenger.
It must be someone who can move around and monitor staff activities. The staffers might not suspect a worker of the lowest cadre. The more humble the mole is the better. Staff tends to like and trust a humble staff they can push around.
He should report to a security supervisor who is not part of the branch setup. The security supervisor will in turn report to the headquarters. There is no way they will not spot an informant or somebody trying to sabotage the banks effort in profit maximization.
This strategy will involve a lot of human and financial resources. The mole will monitor phone calls, official conversations, and grapevines.
2. Do monthly rotations of staffers
Do not hesitate to do continuous staffers rotation. Do not allow a staff to spend more than a month in a branch, maximum, two months.
This strategy will disrupt any fraudulent plans they might be cooking. Do take them unaware. When staff spend more time in their place of work, they become comfortable and familiar with the banking environment.
They become greedy and start hatching sinister plans to either defraud the bank or connive with outsiders to rob the bank. Many times, when a staff is found culpable in fraudulent activities, be aware that he has spent many months or years in that branch.
3. Ban all phone calls during working hours
This strategy might seem harsh but if put into use, it will minimize the use of phone calls to commit crimes. When a staff cannot communicate with his collaborators, their plans will be fruitless. At the initial stage, staff might resist the move. They will fall into plans as time goes on. This is one of the effective ways to disrupt insider-outsider collaborators.
After a robbery attack occurs, it is certain that a staff member could have made contact with the robbers. The bank staff could have informed them how vulnerable and porous the banking security apparatus was.
He could have told them how many mobile police officers are on ground, how many banks’ security guards are in the premises and the number of CCTV cameras install within and outside the banking hall.
Bank robbers depend on informants to feed them with up-to-date security details and loopholes. Their successes can go smoothly or awry depending on the accuracy of the informant.
4. Brief staff on simple security tips
The banking staff needs to know some simple security tips to alert management on suspicious activities in and outside the banking hall. I believe some banks are imbibing these attitudes in their staffers.
Nevertheless, the banks need to do more in the area of security sensitization. One of such security briefing is what the staff should do when there is an infiltration of armed robbers into the banking hall. Another is to stay alert at all times to spot suspicious activities around the hall.
All should imbibe security and safety. Not only the security managers or supervisors should know about security awareness. Security is about collaboration. Security is about teamwork.
Those saddled with the responsibility of monitoring the movement of customers and visitors alike should make effective use of CCTVs installed in and outside the banking hall.
5. Build a safety hub in the bank
There are times when there is a breach in security. Where do customers and staff members run to hide? Banks should deemphasize a little less on making money and put more resources in the area of securing their staff and asset from attack.
I am sure many banks do not have a secure hub or room where people can run to when they come face-to-face with danger. It should be bulletproof resistance to withstand powerful firearms.
6. Work with security agencies to protect your assets
Many banks are collaborating with security agencies to secure their banking halls and premises. However, others do not bother to engage their services. The banks security guards do not have the wherewithal to engage these hoodlums in gun battle.
Mobile police officers have gone through tough training to defend the populace and banks should engage their services. The amount you pay so that they can protect your bank branches are not more than what you will lose in the end. I think some banks are too money conscious to invest in their capital and human resources.
7. Banks should invest in drones
This may come as a surprise to some. Drones are the main thing right now. It can provide aerial view of human and vehicular movements in and outside the banking premises. If the likes of Google, amazon, and the likes are using drones to make their business activities easier, it means the banking sector must purchase and make use of these devices.
Drones can take pictures, scan, do life videos, and record. CCTVs are effective but people are moving into other innovative areas. My job as a security consultant is to give banks innovative ways to protect and secure their assets from criminal elements including insider informants.
8. The banks security supervisors should meet every quarterly
This is to enable them map out plans to secure their assets from compromise. I do not think banks have this strategy on ground.
Base on the slow but ascending rate of suicide attempts in the country, I decided it is best I write something to encourage people going through rough and tough times.
