The US Department of Defense (DOD) will conduct a “communications interoperability” training exercise November 4-6, simulating the impacts of a massive coronal mass ejection event on the national power grid as well as all forms of traditional communication.
This drill will start on ANTIFA’s day of rage across the United States.
Space weather events and their impacts on our new technology era is taking always more importance in our lifes. In this phase of solar minimum, the USA are intensively preparing their responsivity to such a cataclysmic event. In July, the US government quietly ordered an Executive Order – “Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events.”
Now, to test the impacts of a powerful magnetic storm on the US communication structures, the US Department of Defense (DOD) will conduct a nationwide drill on November 04-06, which ‘[…] will begin with a notional massive coronal mass ejection event which will impact the national power grid as well as all forms of traditional communication, including landline telephone, cellphone, satellite, and Internet connectivity.[…]’
The announcement released on October 24 has not been widely distributed to the media, because the drill is simulating a total grid collapse and could spark public fear.
