OrbComm Overview and History:

Source: Wikipedia

ORBCOMM (NASDAQORBC) is an American company that offers industrial Internet of things (IoT) and machine to machine (M2M)[1] communications solutions[buzzword] designed to track, monitor, and control fixed and mobile assets in markets including transportation, heavy equipment, maritime, oil and gas, utilities and government. The company provides hardware devices, modems, web applications and data services delivered over multiple satellite and cellular networks.

As of November 2017, ORBCOMM has more than 2 million billable subscriber communicators,[2] serving Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) such as Caterpillar Inc.Doosan Infracore America, Hitachi Construction Machinery Co., Ltd., John DeereKomatsu Limited, and Volvo Construction Equipment, as well as other customers such as J. B. Hunt,[3] C&S Wholesale GrocersCanadian National RailwaysCR EnglandHub Group, KLLM Transport Services, Marten Transport, Swift TransportationTargetTropicanaTyson FoodsWalmart and Werner Enterprises.[4]

ORBCOMM owns and operates a global network of 31 LEO communications satellites and accompanying ground infrastructure including 16 Gateway Earth Stations (GESs) around the world. ORBCOMM is licensed to provide service in more than 130 countries and territories worldwide.[5]

Founding and development of low Earth orbit satellite system.

The ORBCOMM low Earth orbit (LEO) system was conceived by Orbital Sciences Corporation (Orbital) in the late 1980s. In 1990, Orbital filed the world’s first license application with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for the operation of a network of small LEO spacecraft[6] to provide global satellite services of commercial messaging and data communications services via the company’s ORBCOMM program.

During the initial stages of the program, Orbital pursued a multi-pronged approach: regulatory approvals; ground infrastructure development and procurement of sites; modem development and country licensing. In 1992, the World Administrative Radio Conference (WARC) supported the spectrum allocation for non-voice, non-geostationary mobile satellite service. With WARC approval, Orbital set up a specific ORBCOMM program for the development of satellites and ground infrastructure, and ORBCOMM became a wholly owned subsidiary of Orbital. In 1995, ORBCOMM was granted a full license to operate a network with up to 200,000 mobile Earth stations (MESs).

ORBCOMM began procuring Gateway Earth Station (GES) locations and contracted with a division of Orbital Sciences, located in Mesa, AZ, to develop and build four sets of GESs and associated spares. Land for the four GESs was procured or leased in Arizona, Washington, New York and Georgia.

After the 1992 WARC approval, ORBCOMM signed contracts with three modem developers and manufacturers: Kyushu Matsushita Electric Company, a division of Panasonic; Elisra Electronic Systems, an Israeli company with expertise in electronic warfare systems; and Torrey Science & Technology, a small San Diego-based company with long ties to Orbital Sciences. Panasonic provided the first ORBCOMM-approved MES in March 1995. Elisra followed with the EL2000 in late 1995, and Torrey Science provided the ComCore 200 in April 1996.

During the development of equipment, ORBCOMM also pursued licensing and regulatory approvals in several countries. By 1995, ORBCOMM had obtained regulatory approval in 19 countries, with a number of additional countries well into the regulatory process. ORBCOMM was also in initial negotiations with groups in Indonesia, EMEA and Italy for becoming ORBCOMM licensees, as well as GES operators in their respective regions.

During the conceptual stages of the LEO satellite communications system, Orbital Sciences purchased a small company in Boulder, Colorado specializing in small-satellite design. This company built the first three satellites in the ORBCOMM system: ORBCOMM X, Communications Demonstration Satellite (CDS) 1 and CDS 2. ORBCOMM X was lost after a single orbit. To validate the feasibility of commercially tracking and communicating with a LEO satellite, Orbital built an additional communications payload and flew this payload on an SR-71 in 1992. These tests were successful, and work on CDS 1 and 2 continued. CDS 1 and CDS 2 were launched in February and April 1992 respectively. These satellites were used to further validate the design of the network and were showcased in Orbital’s plans to sign up an equity partner for the completion of the ORBCOMM System.

In June 1992, Orbital created an equal partnership called ORBCOMM Global L.P. with Teleglobe Mobile Partners (Teleglobe Mobile), an affiliate of Teleglobe Inc., for the design and development of the LEO satellite system. Teleglobe Mobile invested million in the project and also provided international service distribution. Orbital agreed to construct and launch satellites for the ORBCOMM system and to construct the satellite control center, the network control center and four U.S. gateway Earth stations.

In April 1995, two satellites (F Plane) were launched, and in the summer the ORBCOMM global mobile data communications network was tested. Teleglobe Mobile invested an additional million in the project that year and joined Orbital as a full joint-venture partner in ORBCOMM. In February 1996, ORBCOMM initiated the world’s first commercial service for global mobile data communications provided by LEO satellites. ORBCOMM also raised an additional million.[7] In October 1996, ORBCOMM licensed Malaysian partner Technology Resources Industries Bhd. (TRI) to sell ORBCOMM’s global two-way messaging service in Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei. TRI became the owner of a 15% stake in ORBCOMM, Teleglobe owning 35% and the rest held by Orbital.[8]

In December 1997, ORBCOMM launched 8 satellites (A Plane). In 1998 ORBCOMM launched 2 satellites (G Plane) in February, 8 satellites (B Plane) in August and 8 satellites (C Plane) in September. After a short hiatus, ORBCOMM launched 7 more satellites (D Plane) in December 1999.

With the launch and operation of the C Plane satellites, ORBCOMM became the first commercial provider of global LEO satellite data and messaging communications services. ORBCOMM inaugurated full commercial service with its satellite-based global data communications network on November 30, 1998. In March 1998, the FCC expanded ORBCOMM’s original license from 36 to 48 satellites.[9]

In January 2000, Orbital halted funding of ORBCOMM, and Teleglobe and Orbital signed a new partnership agreement with 67% ownership to Teleglobe and 33% to Orbital.[10] In May 2000, Teleglobe ceased funding ORBCOMM. Like its voice-centric competitors Iridium and Globalstar, it filed for Chapter 11 protection, in September 2000.

New ownership

In 2001, a group of private investors purchased ORBCOMM and its assets out of an auction process, and ORBCOMM LLC was organized on April 4, 2001. On April 23, 2001, this group of investors acquired substantially all of the non-cash assets of ORBCOMM Global L.P. and its subsidiaries, which included the in-orbit satellites and supporting U.S. ground infrastructure equipment that the company owns today. At the same time, ORBCOMM LLC also acquired the FCC licenses required to own and operate the communications system from a subsidiary of Orbital Sciences Corporation, which was not in bankruptcy, in a related transaction. ORBCOMM issued a public offering of stock in November 2006. The company sold 9.23 million shares of common stock.

In September, 2007, ORBCOMM Inc. was sued for its IPO prospectus containing inaccurate statements of material fact. It failed to disclose that demand for the company’s products was weakening. In 2009, a payment of was agreed.[11]

In September 2009, ORBCOMM signed a contract with SpaceX to launch ORBCOMM’s next-generation OG2 satellite constellation.[12]

ORBCOMM launched its commercial Satellite Automatic Identification System (AIS) service in 2009.[13] AIS technology is used mainly for collision avoidance, but also for maritime domain awareness, search and rescue, and environmental monitoring. AIS launched two additional satellites, VesselSat-1 and VesselSat-2, in January 2011 and October 2012 respectively.

On July 14, 2014 ORBCOMM launched six next-generation OG2 satellites aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

In December 2015, the company launched eleven OG2 satellites from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida with the launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. This dedicated launch marked ORBCOMM’s second and final OG2 mission to complete its next-generation satellite constellation.[14]

Network services

ORBCOMM provides satellite data services. As of May 2016, ORBCOMM has more than 1.6 million billable subscriber communicators.[37] ORBCOMM has control centers in the United StatesBrazilJapan, and South Korea, as well as U.S. ground stations in New YorkGeorgiaArizonaWashington and international ground stations in Curaçao, Italy, Australia, Kazakhstan, Brazil, Argentina, Morocco, Japan, South Korea, and Malaysia. Plans for additional ground station locations are under way.

The ORBCOMM satellite network is best suited for users who send small amounts of data. To avoid interference, terminals are not permitted to be active more than 1% of the time, and thus they may only execute a 450 ms data burst twice every 15 minutes. The latency inherent in ORBCOMM’s network design prevents it from supporting certain safety-critical applications.

ORBCOMM’s acquisition of SkyWave Mobile Communications in January 2015 gave the company access to higher bandwidth, lower-latency satellite products and services that leverage IsatData Pro (IDP) technology over Inmarsat‘s global L-band satellite network.

ORBCOMM’s direct competition includes Globalstar‘s simplex services (which ORBCOMM also resells) and L-band leased capacity services such as those offered by SkyBitz. ORBCOMM’s most significant competitor is Iridium Communications, which offers the Iridium SBD service, which features data packet, latency and antenna capabilities similar to that of IDP technology, which is now jointly owned by ORBCOMM and Inmarsat.

ORBCOMM satellite services can be easily integrated with business applications. Customer data can be retrieved or auto-forwarded via SMTP or HTTP/XML feed directly over the Internet or through a dedicated link.[38]

ORBCOMM also partners with seven different cellular providers to offer wireless connectivity, cellular airtime data plans and SIM cards for M2M and IoT applications.[39]

ORBCOMM’s other network service business is Automatic Identification System, or AIS, which is a widely deployed system used to track ocean vessels. Six satellites with AIS capability were launched in June 2008, referred to as the Quick Launch satellites. However, all six satellites eventually failed prematurely. When ORBCOMM’s next generation satellites launched on July 14, 2014, each one was equipped with an Automatic Identification System (AIS) payload to receive and report transmissions from AIS-equipped vessels for ship tracking and other maritime applications. ORBCOMM combines its satellite AIS data with a variety of terrestrial feeds to track over 150,000 vessels daily for over 100 customers in a variety of government and commercial organizations.[40]

Setting the stage for controversial tracking technology, the satellite telecommunications company ORBCOMM has signed an agreement with VeriChip Corp., maker of the world’s first implantable radio frequency identification microchip.

VeriChip, a subsidiary of Applied Digital, will work with ORBCOMM to develop and market new military, security and health-care applications in the U.S. and around the world, the company said.

As WorldNetDaily reported, Applied Digital has created and successfully field-tested a prototype of an implant for humans with GPS, or global positioning satellite, technology.

Once inserted into a human, it can be tracked by GPS technology and the information relayed wirelessly to the Internet, where an individual’s location, movements and vital signs can be stored in a database for future reference.

“ORBCOMM’s relationship with VeriChip provides yet another new and important industry that will use the ORBCOMM satellite system and its ground infrastructure network to transmit messages globally,” ORBCOMM CEO Jerry Eisenberg said.

Initially, after privacy concerns and verbal protests over marketing the technology for government use, Applied backed away from public discussion about such implants and the possibility of using them to usher in a “cashless society.”

In addition, to quell privacy concerns, the company issued numerous denials, stating it had no plans for implants.

When WND reported in April 2002 that the company planned such implant technology, Applied Digital spokesman Matthew Cossolotto accused WND of intentionally printing falsehoods.

Less than three weeks later, however, the company issued a press release announcing that it was accelerating development on a GPS implant.

What Is Internet Of Things?

Source: Wired.co.uk

From hairbrushes to scales, consumer and industrial devices are having chips inserted into them to collect and communicate data

Smart toasters, connected rectal thermometers and fitness collars for dogs are just some of the everyday “dumb items” being connected to the web as part of the Internet of Things (IoT).

Connected machines and objects in factories offer the potential for a ‘fourth industrial revolution’, and experts predict more than half of new businesses will run on the IoT by 2020.

Here’s everything you need to know about the increasingly connected world.


What is the Internet of Things?

In the broadest sense, the term IoT encompasses everything connected to the internet, but it is increasingly being used to define objects that “talk” to each other. “Simply, the Internet of Things is made up of devices – from simple sensors to smartphones and wearables – connected together,” Matthew Evans, the IoT programme head at techUK, says.

By combining these connected devices with automated systems, it is possible to “gather information, analyse it and create an action” to help someone with a particular task, or learn from a process. In reality, this ranges from smart mirrors to beacons in shops and beyond.

“It’s about networks, it’s about devices, and it’s about data,” Caroline Gorski, the head of IoT at Digital Catapult explains. IoT allows devices on closed private internet connections to communicate with others and “the Internet of Things brings those networks together. It gives the opportunity for devices to communicate not only within close silos but across different networking types and creates a much more connected world.”


Why do connected devices need to share data?

An argument has been raised that only because something can be connected to the internet doesn’t mean it should be, but each device collects data for a specific purpose that may be useful to a buyer and impact the wider economy.

Within industrial applications, sensors on product lines can increase efficiency and cut down on waste. One study estimates 35 per cent of US manufacturers are using data from smart sensors within their set-ups already. US firm Concrete Sensors has created a device that can be inserted into concrete to provide data on the material’s condition, for instance.

“IoT offers us opportunity to be more efficient in how we do things, saving us time, money and often emissions in the process,” Evans says. It allows companies, governments and public authorities to re-think how they deliver services and produce goods.

“The quality and scope of the data across the Internet of Things generates an opportunity for much more contextualised and responsive interactions with devices to create a potential for change,” continued Gorski. It “doesn’t stop at a screen”.

Where does the IoT go next?

Even those who have purchased one of the myriad smart home products – from lightbulbs, switches, to motion sensors – will attest to the fact IoT is in its infancy. Products don’t always easily connect to each other and there are significant security issues that need to be addressed.

A report from Samsung says the need to secure every connected device by 2020 is “critical”. The firm’s Open Economy document says “there is a very clear danger that technology is running ahead of the game”. The firm said more than 7.3 billion devices will need to be made secure by their manufacturers before 2020.

“We are looking at a future in which companies will indulge in digital Darwinism, using IoT, AI and machine learning to rapidly evolve in a way we’ve never seen before,” Brian Solis, from Altimeter Group, who helped on the research said.

IoT botnets, created using a network of out-of-date devices took large websites and services offline in 2016. A Chinese firm later recalled 4.3 million unsecured connected cameras. The ease of bringing down the internet using IoT devices was revealed when instead of malicious purposes, the botnet was revealed to have been created to game Minecraft.


But aren’t there privacy implications?

Everything that’s connected to the internet can be hacked, IoT products are no exception to this unwritten rule. Insecure IoT systems led to toy manufacturer VTech losing videos and pictures of children using its connected devices.

There’s also the issue of surveillance. If every product becomes connected then there’s the potential for unbridled observation of users. If a connected fridge tracks food usage and consumption, takeaways could be targeted at hungry people who have no food. If a smartwatch can detect when you’re having sex, what is to stop people with that data using it against the watches’ wearer.

“In the future, intelligence services might use the [internet of things] for identification, surveillance, monitoring, location tracking, and targeting for recruitment, or to gain access to networks or user credentials,” James Clapper, the US direction or national intelligence said in 2016. Wikileaks later claimed the CIA has been developing security exploits for a connected Samsung TV.


We need reliable standards

At the centre of creating a vast, reliable IoT network lies one significant issue: compatible standards. Connected objects need to be able to speak to each other to transfer data and share what they are recording. If they all run on different standards, they struggle to communicate and share. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Standards Association lists a huge number of standards being developed and worked on for different applications.

“Additional needs are emerging for standardisation,” the Internet Society says. If standardisation happens it will let more devices and applications be connected.

To try and tackle this issue on an enterprise scale, Microsoft has introduced its own system for IoT devices. Called IoT Central, TechCrunch, reports the system gives businesses a managed central platform for setting up IoT devices. Microsoft claims the system will simply the creation of IoT networks.

Gorski described IoT, even among those with the most experience of the concept, as a “relatively immature market” but said 2016 may have been a turning point. The Hypercat standard is now supported by ARM, Intel, Amey, Bae Systems and Accenture and the firms are currently agreeing on a format for “exposing collections” of URLs, for example.

“In the short term, we know [IoT] will impact on anything where there is a high cost of not intervening,” Evans said. “And it’ll be for simpler day-to-day issues – like finding a car parking space in busy areas, linking up your home entertainment system and using your fridge webcam to check if you need more milk on the way home.

“Ultimately what makes it exciting is that we don’t yet know the exact use cases and just that it has the potential to have a major impact on our lives.”

President Trump Supports Enslaving Americans In A 5G Network Digital Control Grid.

President Trump announces new 5G initiatives: It’s a race ‘America must win’

PUBLISHED FRI, APR 12 2019 3:03 PM EDT UPDATED FRI, APR 12 2019 5:42 PM EDT

Source: cnbc.com

President Donald Trump and the FCC on Friday announced several initiatives to spur 5G network growth in the U.S.

“The race to 5G is on and America must win,” Trump said, noting that 92 5G markets will be ready by the end of the year, outpacing South Korea, which is on pace to have 48 markets live by the end of 2019.

“It’s a race our great companies are now involved in,” Trump said. “According to some estimates, the wireless industry plans to invest $275 billion in 5G networks, creating 3 million American jobs quickly, and adding $500 billion to our economy.”

5G is the next generation of wireless network that will enable faster data speeds. Unlike 4G LTE, which mainly targeted mobile phones, tablets and computers, 5G is also expected to enable more reliable connections on self-driving vehicles that will need a constant data connection, and smart cities that use “internet of things” devices, such as connected street lamps, traffic lights and more.

AT&T and Verizon already have fledgling 5G networks in the United States, and T-Mobile and Sprint plan to activate their networks later in 2019. Only one phone from Motorola, offered on Verizon, supports 5G in the U.S. right now.

“To accelerate and incentivize these investments, my administration is freeing up as much wireless spectrum as needed,” Trump said. ”[We’re] removing regularity barriers to the buildout of networks.The FCC is taking very bold action, bolder than they’ve ever taken before, to make wireless spectrum available.

Spectrum is the airwaves networks use to provide internet to devices. Spectrum space is regulated by the FCC.

Trump’s comments come in tandem with announcements the FCC made Friday. The FCC said that starting on Dec. 10, it will offer “the largest spectrum auction in our nation’s history,” allow carriers bid on 3,400 MHz of new spectrum in the Upper 37 GHz, 39 GHz and 47 GHz spectrum bands. The additional spectrum would “promote the development of 5G, the Internet of Things and other advanced spectrum-based services,” the FCC said.

Additionally, the FCC proposed new new rules that allow “Fixed Satellite Service operators to provide faster, more advanced services to their customers” using 50 GHz spectrum. It also said that current rules “impair the ability of users to deploy small, next-generation networking devices on their own property,” particularly in rural areas, and proposed changes that would allow people to install “hub and relay antennas” on their property to help spur 5G networks.

“The FCC aims to create a $20.4 billion Rural Digital Opportunity fund,” to “extend high-speed broadband to up to 4 million homes and high-speed businesses in rural America,” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said.

Pai also addressed the crackdown on Huawei’s equipment for use in 5G networks across the U.S. and Europe.

“We believe that the security and reliability of 5G is absolutely important, not just as a matter of national competitiveness, but also as a matter of national security,” Pai told CNBC’s Eamon Javers. “I have been very encouraged by my conversations with our European allies all across the Continent about the importance of security and 5G networks. The need to have a framework to understand the risk profile of certain equipment and services is something most allies recognize and it’s just a collaborative process of making sure that we have a framework that works for everybody.”

5G WIRELESS: A RIDICULOUS FRONT FOR GLOBAL CONTROL

One wireless control grid to rule them all

Jon Rappoport | Infowars.com – APRIL 4, 2018

First, two quotes to give a bit of background.

5G speed, for people who must download a whole season of their favorite show in two seconds:

“It’s the next (fifth) generation of cellular technology which promises to greatly enhance the speed, coverage and responsiveness of wireless networks. How fast are we talking about? Think 10 to 100 times speedier than your typical cellular connection, and even faster than anything you can get with a physical fiber-optic cable going into your house. (You’ll be able to download a season’s worth of ‘Stranger Things’ in seconds.)” [CNET.com]

Lunatic 5G installation of small transmitters packed close together every few hundred feet:

“The next big thing in cellular technology, 5G, will bring lightning-fast wireless Internet — and thousands of antenna-topped poles to many neighborhoods where cell towers have long been banned.”

“Wireless companies are asking Congress and state lawmakers to make it easier to install the poles by preempting local zoning laws that often restrict them, particularly near homes. The lobbying efforts have alarmed local officials across the country. They say they need to ensure that their communities do not end up with unsightly poles cluttering sidewalks, roadsides and the edges of front yards.”

“They also are hearing from residents worried about possible long-term health risks. Until now, much of the cell equipment that emits radio-frequency energy has been housed on large towers typically kept hundreds of feet from homes [also harmful to health]. The new ‘small cell’ technology uses far more antennas and transmitters that are smaller and lower-powered, but clustered closer together and lower to the ground.” [The Washington Post]

I keep hammering on this 5G issue, because it contains the blueprint of a future only elite madmen want.

For the rest of us, it’s a catastrophe in the making.

I’ve covered the extreme health dangers of 5G in another article. Here, I want to flesh out the hidden agenda.

A few decades ago, a movement was started to create an interconnected power grid for the whole planet. We were told this would be the only way to avoid wasting huge amounts of electricity and, voila, bring all nations and all people into a modern 21st century.

But now, it’s a different story, a classic bait and switch. The bait was the promise of One Grid for all. The switch is what 5G will bring us:

100 billion or more NEW devices online, all connected to the Internet and the Cloud. What could be more wasteful? What could be more ridiculous? This is the opposite of sane energy use.

Who really cares whether his 5G-connected refrigerator keeps track of the food items inside it and orders new items when the supply dwindles? Who has to have a 5G driverless car that takes him to work? Who must have a 5G stove that senses what is being cooked and sets the temperature for four minutes? Who lives and who dies if a washing machine doesn’t measure how much soap is stored inside and doesn’t order new soap? Who is demanding a hundred devices in his home that spy on him and record his actions?

With 5G, the ultimate goal is: every device in every home that uses energy will be “its own computer,” and the planetary grid will connect ALL these devices to a monitoring and regulating Energy Authority.

As Patrick Wood details in his classic, Technocracy Rising, that worldwide Energy Authority was the dream of the men who launched the Technocracy movement, in America, in the 1930s.

They set out the key requirements—which weren’t technically possible then, but are quite doable now: continuous real-time measuring of both energy production and energy use from one end of the planet to the other…

So that both energy production and energy consumption could be controlled. “For the good of all,” of course.

5G is the technology for making this happen.

“We’re promising a stunning long-range future of ‘automatic homes’, where everything is done for you. But really, that’s the cover story. Ultimately, we want to be able to measure every unit of energy used by every device in every home—and through AI, regulate how much energy we will let every individual consume, moment to moment. We control energy. We are the energy masters. If you want to run and operate and dominate the world, you control its energy.”

Terms and projects like smart grid, smart meters, sustainability, Agenda 21, smart cities, climate change—all this is Technocratic planning and justification for Rule through Energy.

The beginning of an actual rational plan for energy would start this way: DUMP 5G. Dump the whole plan of installing small transmitter-cells on buildings and homes and trees and lampposts and fences all over the planet. Forget it. Don’t bring 100 billion new devices online. Aside from the extreme health dangers, it’s ridiculously expensive. It’s on the order of saying we need thousand-foot robots standing on sidewalks washing the windows of office buildings.

If some movie star wants to install 30 generators on his property and have engineers build him an automatic home, where he can sit back, flip a switch, and have three androids carry him into his bathtub and wash him and dry him, fine. But planning a smart city? Who voted for that? Who gave informed consent? Nobody.

A global Energy Authority, of course, is going to decide that a small African country needs to be given much more energy, while Germany or France or the US will have to sacrifice energy for the cause of social justice. But this is yet another con, because you won’t see government cleaning up the contaminated water supplies of that small African country, or installing modern sanitation, or curtailing the forced movement of populations into poverty-stricken cities, or reclaiming vast farm land stolen by mega-corporations and giving that land back to local farmers.

The whole hidden purpose of an Energy Authority is control.

And because the Authority is Globalist and Technocratic, it aims to lower energy use in industrial nations and help wreck their economies, making it much easier to move in and take over those countries.

Having said all this, there are gaps in our knowledge about 5G. For example, who in his right mind would propose a wireless system that relies on many, many, many cells/transmitters placed closely to each other, all over the world?

This system would be far more vulnerable to physical disruption than the present 4G.

You can find many articles that claim the US military must have 5G for their most advanced planes—and for their developing AI-controlled weapons. How does that work? Where will all the transmitter/cells be placed on the ground and in the air?? Something is missing here. Is there another version of 5G we’re not being told about? Is geoengineering of the atmosphere the means for tuning up space so 5G signals can be passed along without cells/transmitters?

Part of the US obsession to bring 5G online quickly stems from competition with China, which at the moment is in the lead on developing and exporting the technology. “If China has it, we have to have it sooner and better.” This attitude sidesteps the issue of why we must have 5G in the first place.

And now there are reports that the US government is considering a plan to build the whole 5G network itself—rather than leaving the job to corporations. Of course, a few favored companies (like Google) would be chosen by the government in a non-bid situation to provide VERY significant help. If such a plan were to launch, we would have a very tight club at the top of the communications and energy pyramid. And that club would maximize 5G to expand already-saturated surveillance of populations.

Wouldn’t you—if you had nothing better to do than control the world?

5G Network Is For Self-Driving Vehicle´s. American People To Be Put In A Internet Of Things Digital Gulag.

Will 5G be necessary for self-driving cars?

 

BBC.com

By Mary-Ann RussonBusiness reporter

September 27, 2018

Proponents of 5G say it will offer ultra-fast connections, speedier data downloads, and be able to handle millions more connections than 4G mobile networks can cope with today. One use for 5G is self-driving cars, but will they really need it?

The telecoms industry envisions autonomous cars equipped with hundreds of sensors collecting and receiving information all at once over a network.

It calls this concept “Vehicle-to-everything” (V2X).

To achieve this, the car needs to detect blind spots and avoid collisions with people, animals or other vehicles on the road.

As the car drives, its sensors will pick up information about:

weather and road conditions

accidents

obstacles and objects moving near the car

Once the information is gathered, either an on-board computer will make an instant decision, or the data could be sent into the cloud to be processed, and then a decision would be sent back to the vehicle.

_103575357_gettyimages-692819426

Smarter than humans

Imagine a scenario where Car A is travelling down a highway at 80mph. Suddenly, Car B pulls out in front of Car A.

To avoid an accident, the sensors on both cars would need to talk to each other. As a result, Car A would brake, and Car B would speed up, in order to avoid a collision.

“We need to look at how long it takes for the message to be transmitted between sensors and then get to the computer in each car, and then how long it takes for the computer to make a decision, and all of this has to be in less time than a human would take to make a decision – 2 milliseconds,” Jane Rygaard, of Finnish tech firm Nokia, tells the BBC.

“We need a network supporting this, and 5G is that network.”

UK national mapping agency Ordnance Survey agrees: “When you switch a light on, it turns on immediately. That’s what you need with autonomous cars – if something happens, the car needs to stop immediately. That’s why the high frequency 5G signals are required.”

But it’s not just about the car itself – technology firm Ericsson says that in the event of a major disaster, or severe congestion around a football stadium, authorities could send instant alerts to autonomous cars, warning them to use alternative routes instead.

Ericsson has conducted tests in Stockholm, Sweden with car manufacturer Volvo and truck maker Scania, using a counter-terrorism scenario whereby police were able to disable a hijacked connected truck or prevent it from entering certain geo-fenced locations.

Levels of automation

US engineering organisation SAE International has set out six categories of automation for cars:

Level Zero: not automated at all

Level One: some driver assist features

Level Two: car can accelerate and steer by itself, but driver must pay attention

Level Three: car can drive by itself on safe road conditions under 37 mph, but driver is still needed

Level Four: car can drive completely by itself, but only within a well-mapped area

Level Five: car can drive completely by itself, over any terrain, anywhere in the world

Research firm Gartner expects Level Three and Level Four autonomous vehicles to begin appearing in late 2018 in very small numbers, and by 2025, it expects that there will be more than 600,000 autonomous vehicles on the roads worldwide.

Millimetre wave antennas

Ordnance Survey says autonomous vehicles are possible with 5G, but initially, they will only be able to run in a well-mapped geographic area, such as a densely populated city.

The government agency is building a detailed 3D map of the UK that visualises all permanent fixtures like buildings, street signs and bridges, as well as temporary objects like Christmas decorations, cranes and hanging flower baskets – all of which could affect the strength of the 5G signal a car receives as it drives by.

In order for autonomous cars to simultaneously connect to the mobile network, existing 4G mobile antennas on buildings will not be enough – there will need to be lots of smaller millimetre wave antennas, located 200-300m apart from each other.

“For every one mobile base station we have today, you’ll probably need 60 or 70 millimetre wave transmitters and receivers,” explains Richard Woodling, a managing consultant with the Ordnance Survey.

It is unlikely that fully-autonomous cars will be possible for a long time to come, but Ford is hoping to launch a Level Four car in 2021.

To this end, Ford is mapping the roads and environment in Miami.

It has developed simulation software to try to predict all possible situations that a car might find itself in, so that it can eliminate unsafe outcomes.

But Mr Woodling is sceptical that an autonomous car in a city will be ready so soon.

“I don’t see it happening in my lifetime,” he says. “There’s no way you could put that in London and say we’re ready for everyone to have an autonomous vehicle – we’re a long way away from that.

5G or Wi-Fi?

 

Some people in the industry argue that self-driving cars don’t need 5G.

Since the automobile industry is already making connected cars today that use 4G to access weather and road updates, 5G critics say it can continue to use 4G, together with Wi-Fi protocols.

“Self-driving cars have to be completely safe and reliable without mobile coverage, and if this is possible, then why do they need mobile coverage at all?” says Prof William Webb, a consultant and author of the book The 5G Myth: When vision decoupled from reality.

“I agree car-to-car communications would be sensible and enhance safety, but that communication is available now within Wi-Fi protocols or 4G.

“For car-to-car communications you don’t need a network – the cars connect directly to each other.”

Enrico Salvatori, president of Qualcomm Europe, whose chipsets are already being used by 33 automobile makers worldwide, strongly disagrees with Prof Webb.

“Wi-Fi can address short-range communications, but V2X includes vehicle to the network, to the city, to the cloud, so you need to have a standard that is including all the possible applications end-to-end,” he tells the BBC.

_102807703_scania-trucks

“It needs to be able to connect to any distance, near or far.”

Ford says that it sits somewhere in the middle of these two sides of the argument.

“We were previously proponents of the Wi-Fi protocol because it was the only technology available at the time,” explains Ford’s executive director for connected vehicle platform and product Don Butler.

“We do believe that a mobile approach to vehicle-to-vehicle communications is a better alternative than Wi-Fi.”

Research firm Gartner agrees 5G will have an impact on self-driving cars, but there’s a catch.

“5G will indeed be essential to the development and use of autonomous vehicles, with two important caveats – the network must truly be 5G, and the vehicle must truly be autonomous,” Gartner analyst Will Hahn.

“Neither of these appear to be likely in the near term.”

Facebook Watching Your Offline Activity to Label You a “Hate Agent”.

Friday, 14 June 2019

The Big Tech’s oligarchy’s campaign to code and trace the activities of social media users, then shut them down as haters, is worse than anyone thought.

Facebook is now collecting information about its users’ offline activity so it can label them “hate agents” if they run afoul of the shifting set of rules the social media giant employs to control speech.

But Facebook’s move is no surprise. The Social Justice Warriors who control social media have been waging a war against their enemies — meaning conservatives and anyone else who doesn’t agree with social justice warriors — for some time.

Indeed, what the SJW’s at Google, Twitter, and Facebook are waging isn’t just war. It’s a reign of terror. Anyone they don’t like can be deplatformed, demonetized, and, should they earn their daily bread online through those platforms, ruined financially.

Facebook’s Watching

The latest news comes from a source inside Facebook who spilled the beans to Breitbart.com’s Allum Bokhari, who might himself be labeled a “hate agent” for publishing the truth.

Facebook, again, watches what its users do offline, not just on Facebook or other platforms. Then, it acts.

Reported Bokhari:

Facebook monitors the offline behavior of its users to determine if they should be categorized as a “Hate Agent,” according to a document provided exclusively to Breitbart News by a source within the social media giant.

The document, titled “Hate Agent Policy Review” outlines a series of “signals” that Facebook uses to determine if someone ought to be categorized as a “hate agent” and banned from the platform.

Those signals include a wide range of on- and off-platform behavior. If you praise the wrong individual, interview them, or appear at events alongside them, Facebook may categorize you as a “hate agent.”

The document also explains that Facebook has concocted myriad ways to label you a hate agent:

Facebook may also categorize you as a hate agent if you self-identify with or advocate for a “Designated Hateful Ideology,” if you associate with a “Designated Hate Entity” (one of the examples cited by Facebook as a “hate entity” includes Islam critic Tommy Robinson), or if you have “tattoos of hate symbols or hate slogans.” (The document cites no examples of these, but the media and “anti-racism” advocacy groups increasingly label innocuous items as “hate symbols,” including a cartoon frog and the “OK” hand sign.)

Facebook will also categorize you as a hate agent for possession of “hate paraphernalia,” although the document provides no examples of what falls into this category.

Even worse, Facebook might also use something you say in private to label you.

Examples of Facebook’s labeling? It banned the highly popular Paul Joseph Watson because he praised and interviewed British anti-immigration activist Tommy Robinson, and “star conservative pundit Candace Owens and conservative author and terrorism expert Brigitte Gabriel were also on the list, as were British politicians Carl Benjamin and Anne Marie Waters,” Breitbart reported.

Such is Facebook’s totalitarian dragnet that even neutral commentary can invite the label. That’s how Benjamin received his, Bokhari reported. “Facebook also accuses Benjamin, a classical liberal and critic of identity politics, as ‘representing the ideology of an ethnostate’ for a post in which he calls out an actual advocate of an ethnostate.”

Last month, Facebook banned Alex Jones and his Infowars empire, the flamboyant homosexual provocateur, Milos Yiannapoulos, and Nation of Islam crackpot Louis Farrakhan.

Other Sites, Other Targets

Last week, YouTube demonetized the videos of conservative comedian and entertainer Steven Crowder because he “bullied” a homosexual writer. The move backfired and actually helped his brand, but the Robespierres in charge of Big Tech’s cyber-guillotine have lopped off the heads of others, too.

Patreon, the video-monetizing service, banned conservative journalist Lauren Southern after she joined an effort to stop non-governmental organizations from abetting the illegal-alien invasion of Europe. Southern had produced a documentary about the illegal-alien invasion, Borderless, which showed that open-borders leftists from NGOs were coaching illegal-alien Africans in Europe to lie about needing asylum. YouTube initially censored the documentary, but Southern uploaded a backup that is still there.

After Robert Spencer of JihadWatch set up a Patreon account, the platform quickly notified him that Mastercard had said Spencer can’t use its services to collect money for his work.

David Horowitz and his Freedom Center prevailed in their fight against Visa and Mastercard, which tried to shut down his using the credit cards for donations at the behest of the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center, which now faces multiple lawsuits for its false and defamatory claims about conservatives and others it dislikes.

Apple Facetime Bug Lets People Spy On You.

Apple FaceTime bug lets you listen in on people you call, even if they haven’t picked up their iPhone

Todd Haselton

cnbc.com

There’s a FaceTime bug that lets you hear through someone else’s iPhone, even if they haven’t answered your phone call. It was previously reported on Twitter by user Benji Mobb and reported by 9to5Mac.

CNBC tested it and verified that it’s a real bug. I tried placing a video call to my editor from my iPhone using Apple’s FaceTime app. Then, before he picked up, I used the menu option to add somebody else to the call and, as 9to5Mac’s directions state, I added myself to the call. Suddenly, I could hear my editor, even though he never picked up. We continued having a conversation while his phone only gave him the option to answer. There was no indication that the call had already gone through.

The Verge reports that, if the person you’re calling tries to end it by tapping the power button on their phone, it sends video but no audio. That means the person calling you can see a video of you or your surroundings as if you’d answered the call. I replicated this with a friend.

This bug seems to rely on the FaceTime Group Call feature, since you’re trying to add another person to the call. Group FaceTime launched last year.

There’s obviously a big privacy concern here. You could theoretically call anyone with FaceTime and, using the steps above, listen in on their conversations.

Apple, which is scheduled to report earnings on Tuesday afternoon, said a fix is coming this week. “We’re aware of this issue and we have identified a fix that will be released in a software update later this week,” a spokesperson told CNBC. It also deactivated Group FaceTime to prevent people from exploiting the bug before it releases a fix.

In the meantime, and to be extra safe, the fastest fix right now is to just turn off FaceTime. Here’s how:

Open Settings on your iPhone or iPad

Choose FaceTime

Toggle FaceTime to off.

Facebook And Twitter Can Still Stalk You Online Even If You Delete Your Account – By Spying On Your Friends.

DELETING your social media won’t stop tech firms from tracking your every move.

That’s the terrifying conclusion from a new study that investigated how apps like Facebook and Twitter can follow people who don’t even use social media sites.

Last year saw Facebook admit to a number of privacy blunders that left tens of millions of users exposed.

Many users responded by simply deleting their Facebook accounts – their only hope of regaining control over privacy.

But research published in Nature Human Behaviour shows that account deletion isn’t enough.

Data scientists were able to accurately predict a person’s posts without ever looking at their social profile.

There’s no place to hide on a social network,” said Lewis Mitchell, co-author and senior lecturer in applied mathematics at the University of Adelaide.

More than 30million Twitter posts from 13,905 users were gathered up by the University of Vermont and the University of Adelaide.

Researchers were then able to use the information from Twitter messages of 8 or 9 of a person’s contacts – and then predict that person’s later tweets.

According to the study, even if a person leaves a social media site (or never even joined), posts from friends can still provide about 95% of the “potential predictive accuracy”.¨

“You think you’re giving up your information, but you’re giving up your friends’ information too,” said James Bagrow, a mathematician at the University of Vermont who led the research.

It means that normal people will struggle to avoid the clutches of social media sites, who can build profiles on people and use this for ad-targeting purposes.

Even if you don’t have social media accounts, it’s still possible for websites to track your movements across the web – building a picture of what you like and don’t like.

This can then be used to show you ads that companies think you may be interested in.

And even if you never use any social media site, it’s still possible to build up a profile on you, researchers warn.

“You alone don’t control your privacy on social media platforms,” said Bagrow.

“Your friends have a say too.”

New 5G Cell Phone Signals Causing Cancer.

CELL PHONES, CELL TOWERS & CANCER — LINK PROVEN, BUT 5G ADVANCES

New technology could be extremely harmful to humanity

David Knight | Infowars.com – NOVEMBER 2, 2018

A 2016 study on lab rats exposed to cell phone radiation proves a cancer link for males and extensive epidemiological studies done in the 80’s & 90’s in multiple countries showed at least a fourfold increase in cancer.

Here’s the data that caused the Federal government to block any prohibition of cell phone towers in the 1996 Telecommunications Act — the data they don’t want you to see as they rush to 5G.

SWIMMING IN AN ELECTROMAGNETIC SOUP

World Mercury Project – AUGUST 29, 2018

In 2011, the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified radio frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) as “possibly carcinogenic” in humans, but the agency refrained from drawing conclusions about any cancers other than brain cancer. Discussing children’s exposure to EMFs and RFR, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has been similarly wishy-washy, but it does concede that there are three factors that “theoretically” increase children’s risks:

First, children’s nervous systems “are still developing and, therefore, [are] more vulnerable to factors that may cause cancer.”

Second, children’s heads “are smaller than those of adults and consequently have a greater proportional exposure to the field of radio frequency radiation that is emitted by cell phones.”

Finally, “children have the potential of accumulating more years of cell phone exposure than adults do.”

In the spring of 2018, it became more difficult to prevaricate about the evidence. The government’s National Toxicology Program (NTP) convened a panel of experts to review findings from its $25 million study on the health effects of cell phone radiation. The expert panel reported “clear evidence” of carcinogenic effects for several types of cancer, including not just brain cancers but previously rare cardiac tumors and adrenal cancers, as well as evidence of disturbing associations between cell phone exposure and precancerous health effects (such as tissue damage) along with noncancerous effects such as low birth weight and birth defects.

The experts agreed that the NTP study, though conducted in rats and mice, was highly relevant to human health. Shortly thereafter, the Italy-based Ramazzini Institute, an independent cancer research organization, published a study that showed cancer-causing effects associated with cell towers that were “consistent with and reinforce the results of the NTP study.”

Despite governmental claims of insufficient evidence, the 2018 studies actually were only the latest in a long list of studies documenting cancer and other health risks associated with chronic exposure to EMFs and RFR—dangers that are more than “theoretical” for children with their still-developing bodies and brains. According to the 2012 BioInitiative Report—an extensive scientific review by 29 highly qualified medical and scientific experts from 10 countries—1800 studies were published between 2007 and 2012 that reported adverse health effects “at [EMF/RFR] exposure levels ten to hundreds or thousands of times lower than allowed under safety limits in most countries of the world.”

The report’s chapter dedicated to childhood cancers makes the same point, stating that “long-term effects such as cancer seem to be evoked by levels [of exposure] several orders of magnitudes below current guideline levels.” Children are accruing these exposures everywhere: “in education, in housing, in commerce, in communications and entertainment, in medical technologies and imaging, and in public and private transportation by air, bus, train and motor vehicles.” With the current roll out of even more biologically invasive technologies such as 5G antennas (which rely on extremely high-frequency millimeter waves) and “smart” utility meters that pulse on a 24/7 basis, children’s cancer picture has little chance of improving.
