#1621: Marine Links Jason McLean’s Signal Systems' Remote-Tower Hackers to Asiana ILS Attack

Plum City – ( United States Marine Field McConnell has linked a remote-towers hackers’ matrix, apparently built by Signal Systems for Jason McLean while he served in the Office of the Prime Minister (‘PMO’) of Canada (2000-2002), to the San Francisco International Airport Instrument Landing System (‘ILS’) which was allegedly disaabled for a remote-tower man-in-the-middle attack on instrument approach procedures used by the pilots of Asiana Airlines Flight 214.

McConnell alleges that McLean procured access to the Signal Systems remote-tower hackers’ matrix through a fraudulent contract set up in May 2001 by the subsequently-incarcerated Darleen Druyun between the U.S. Air Force and CAI-controlled MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. of Richmond B.C.

Enhanced NEW! exclusive Raw Video Asiana Plane Crash Landing

Asiana Airlines Flight 214 was a scheduled transpacific passenger flight from Incheon International Airport, South Korea, that crashed on final approach to San Francisco International Airport, United States, on July 6, 2013. Of the 307 people (291 passengers and 16 crew) aboard the Asiana Airlines Boeing 777-200ER, two passengers died at the crash scene (one from injuries sustained in the crash, one from being run over by a fire truck) and a third died in a hospital several days later. 181 others were injured, about 13 of them critically. Among the injured were three flight attendants thrown in their seats onto the runway when the aircraft tail hit the seawall in front of runway 28L.”

A navigational technology that steers commercial pilots to safe landings was not operational at San Francisco's airport Saturday when a South Korean airliner came in at an awkward angle and crashed on the runway, officials said.

San Francisco International Airport spokesman Doug Yakel said that a key component of the facility's instrument landing system that tracks and guides an arriving airplane's course was turned off.
The airport has turned off the system for nearly the entire summer on the runway where the Asiana flight crashed, according to a notice from the airport on the Federal Aviation Administration's Web site, Reuters reported. It showed the system out of service June 1-August 22 on runway 28 Left.”

MDA Wins Key U.S. Aviation Contract
Posted Thursday, May 3, 2001
Richmond, B.C. - MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (TSE: MDA) announced today the company has been awarded a contract by the United States Air Force to develop a system to be used by specialists at Air Force bases to design Instrument Approach Procedures (IAPs).

IAPs are published instructions to pilots specifying a series of aircraft maneuvers that must be executed for the aircraft to transition safely from an en route airway to a runway final approach when flying by instruments. MDA's system ingests digital terrain and elevation data, air navigation data (such as the locations of navigation aids, runways, buildings and towers) to build and display a virtual model of the physical environment surrounding an airport. It then develops the complex surfaces that define a safe approach corridor for any of the dozens of IAP variants, and determines whether any of the defined surfaces are penetrated by terrain or man-made obstacles. It flags these incursions to the operator, who can quickly modify the approach procedure through a drag-and-drop user interface.

This initial award, valued at $2.9 million (CDN), consists of a fixed price element to develop, integrate, and test the system. The next phase will include installation, government testing, and operator training. The contract includes an option for the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to adapt the system for their needs. The U.S. Air Force also has options to field the successful system at up to 108 air bases around the world, and to award T&M support contracts for up to 8 years. MDA plans to team up with Air Navigation Data (AND) of Ottawa to offer a custom solution, based on AND's "Final Approach" product.

MDA President and CEO Daniel Friedmann said: "This is a significant project for MDA that has the potential to improve the safety of air transportation for many other air forces and civil aviation authorities world wide."

  1. It was clearly the "Final Approach" product for that flight.
