A Secret Fight over Russia in the Obama Administration

The Obama administration has scheduled a deputies committee meeting this week tentatively set for Tuesday to resolve a bitter inter-agency dispute over a request from Russia with respect to the Open Skies program. Informed sources believe the White House is likely to side with the State Department, which wants to accommodate Russia, over the objections of the Obama administration's Defense Department and intelligence agencies.

The Open Skies treaty allows the United States and Russia to fly over each other's territory with planes loaded with certain agreed-upon sensor packages, in order to ensure compliance with arms control agreements and to provide assurance against preparations for various military surprises.

Russia has asked the U.S. to agree to an upgrade in the sensor package their planes can carry. The request would apparently result in a significant increase in Russian spying capabilities. The first response from Pentagon was, according to one government official close to the situation. You've got to be kidding.

But the State Department has been making the case for acceding to the Russians' demands, and the White House seems to be on State's side. The White House has also stonewalled requests for information from the congressional intelligence committees.

Update: Interesting Mode-S Hex Code Flying Around the Radio Ranch

From time to time I see an interesting hex code pop up on ye ole Mode-S box. Since the last week in March A3F362 is one of those hex codes. It has been a regular visitor here in these parts recently despite the fact that it is the hex code is assigned to an aircraft registered to a company in the Northeast U.S.



The Live Mode-S website/database says this hex code is assigned to various aircraft. The FAA database indicates that this is a Beech B-100 assigned to N3538 owned by FLI HI LLC, 250 Clark Street, North Andover, MA.

There is not much on this company other than it started in 2009, is incorporated in Massachusetts and has no D&B listing. I did find US Security and Exchange filing for Flight Landata Inc that "provides high resolution airborne digital imaging systems and services." In the write up it indicates that the company provides digital imaging services to the U.S. Military.

Check out the flight profile it flew yesterday from KGVL Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport in Gainesville up here to the north Georgia mountains courtesy of Flightaware (click on image to enlarge it). Looks like they may have been imaging around Dahlonega and Camp Merrill which is a US Army Ranger training facility.


Here is the book on this aircraft over the last two months.

So is this N3538 - a Beech B-100 flying A3F362? What was A3F362 doing over in Europe in February? Is the Euro aircraft and the aircraft flying around here one and the same? Are we dealing with more than one aircraft flying the A3F362 hex code? Looks like they are doing some sort of digital imaging given the flight profile they flew yesterday. Nice "little" mystery. Hopefully I can catch these guys and try to get some additional or definitive answers. 

In the meantime I would say that A3F362 is assigned to the aircraft that the FAA says it belongs to N3538 a Beech B-100 flying in and around Camp Merrill conducting digital imaging missions.

US Sending Two Warships to Japan to Counter North Korea


According to AP Press Reports, U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel delivered a two-pronged warning to Asia Pacific nations Sunday, announcing that the U.S. will send two additional ballistic missile destroyers to Japan to counter the North Korean threat, and saying China must better respect its neighbors.

In unusually forceful remarks about China, Hagel drew a direct line between Russia's takeover of Ukraine's Crimea region and the ongoing territorial disputes between China, Japan and others over remote islands in the East China Sea.

The announcement of the deployments of additional destroyers to Japan came as tensions with North Korea spiked again, with Pyongyang continuing to threaten additional missile and nuclear tests.

In recent weeks the North has conducted a series of rocket and ballistic missile launches that are considered acts of protest against annual ongoing springtime military exercises by Seoul and Washington. North Korea says the exercises are rehearsals for invasion.

North and South Korea also fired hundreds of artillery shells into each other's waters in late March in the most recent flare-up.

The two additional ships would bring the total to seven U.S. ballistic missile defense warships in Japan, and it continues U.S. efforts to increase its focus on the Asia Pacific.

The ships serve as both defensive and offensive weapons. They carry sophisticated systems that can track missile launches, and their SM-3 missiles can zero in on and take out short- to medium-range missiles that might be fired at U.S. or allied nations. They can also carry Tomahawk cruise missiles, which can be launched from sea and hit high-value targets or enemy weapons systems from afar, without risking pilots or aircraft.
