Analyst: Stealth Technology Seizure Behind MH370 Disappearance
The Voice of Russia ^ | 20 Mar | Kells Hetherington

Posted on 03/21/2014 7:07:41 AM PDT by SLB

WASHINGTON (VR) — Malaysian Airlines flight 370 was deliberately targeted for hijacking, according to Captain Field McConnell, a retired Delta Airlines pilot and a retired United States Air Force F4 and F16 fighter pilot.

Capt. McConnell cites industrial espionage for a cutting edge military technology as the reason behind the airliner’s disappearance. “There were 20 Chinese software engineers in the aircraft, riding as passengers, and they were working for Freescale Technology in Austin, Texas, and they had the intellectual property of an open patent. In other word[s], a patent had been applied for, but yet --- not yet granted. And the ownership of that patent was 20%, 20%, 20%, 20% and 20% for the U.S. Corporation named Freescale. And until that patent is granted, there is no ownership,” McConnell said.

“The technology they were working on was a way to make stealthy a non-stealth aircraft. In other words, they could take an aircraft that does not have a stealth capability” and make it stealth, McConnell said.

Stealth technologies such as this are found in the B-2 Bomber and the F 1-17, which is no longer deployed, according to McConnell. But the technology is breakthrough in that “going one step further, rather than building an aircraft from the ground up, they can take, for instance a B-52, which was built in 1962 and with electronic technology developed by Freescale, they can increase the stealth or actually they had be reducing the radar signature and they would be increasing the stealthniness of an otherwise very un-stealthy aircraft like a lumbering B-52,” McConnell said.

This group of 20 engineers, McConnell thinks, would be able to set up the technology. The retired Air Force captain said “but also keep in mind, we are not talking about rogue terrorists like Osama bin Laden, we are talking about rogue nations. And I will just give you four nations that are probably wrestling over these technologies for military advantage: Those being China, Russia, the United States and a British corporation called Serco,” McConnell said.

This was actually close to my initial theory. The whole thing smells like electronic warfare air assets were involved and that means nations were involved. I still wouldn’t assume that it wasn’t in the hands of terrorists somewhere and being prepped with a WMD and I definitely wouldn’t assume that it crashed even though it is certainly possible. It’s just prudent to not assume such thing IMO.

The only way you can do this is to redirect the radar signal in a direction that is not the same as the impinging signal OR, OR you can send back an equal strength signal in the same direction that is 180 degrees out of phase with the returning signal. You cannot 'reduce' the actual reflected signal without absorbing or redirecting it.

Its reported that the Captain made a cell phone call just before departure. Too whom? Strikes me as a good idea to check all calls made to foreign countries around midnight. See if any are “Unexpected” countries and think about searching there. It could be that it was his way to give a heads up to the co conspirators. Give inspector Clouseau the week off and get into real investigative work. That airplane was swiped for a reason and it wasn’t to give it a water bath.

Are any of the passengers cited on the patent application as developers of that technology?

I understand there’s been suggestion that the engineering types from Freescale on that plane were production engineers, not developers of the core company technology. Who’s got the exact story on this?

Would the company technology involve patentable assembly processes or is the technology embedded mostly in the software?

In the immediate aftermath of this disappearance, a fellow Freeper posted the comment, "Airframe by Michael Crichton."

I think this is what he was alluding to.

During the 1973 war, Israel went deep into Egyptian territory and captured - intact - a Soviet-supplied missile defense radar installation and carried the whole thing back into Israel. It was the USSR’s latest technology at the time.

The Thales ‘SPECTRA’ system built for the French Rafale fighter jet works in a similar manner. It uses active cancellation to make the plane ‘stealthy.’ It is the most guarded system on the Rafale.

The co-pilot let two gals into the cockpit on a previous flight. He did that to establish a precedence for later allowing two terrorists into the cockpit. CO-PILOT’s previous act of a cockpit breech was a ‘test run’. CHECK HIM OUT.

Understood, but it has to be an active system that tracks the phase of the impinging wave and then with knowledge of processing and re-emission time, received signal strength and phase, produces an equally strong out-of-phase return signal in the direction of the impinging radar signal. It would necessarily be very complex.

Doesn’t explain the transponder being turned off and active telemetry.

Could still be on the bottom of the ocean, but that would be either intentional (pilot suicide) or pilot error (fuel miscalculation).

Pretty sure Freescale has some private jets available for use.

Were these guys high enough on the food chain to rate use of the jets? A brother-in-law was a Conoco VP and had to compete for use of their planes domestically and anything overseas was on commercial flights.

WEll I’m pretty sure that plane is sitting somewhere in a rogue nation right now but which one? I’m going to go with Gen McInerny’s theory for now.

Which ocean is the disinformation team looking in today? :-)

There’s more to stealth than low RCS. There’s also securing the radiation emissions (from communications & airborne RADAR) and Infrared energy from the engines.

Even if this technology works as advertised — and it just might — you still need to build the other aspects of stealth into you modern aircraft. The example of retrofitting a “lumbering B-52” probably isn’t viable.

Upon further research, apparently MAL has not even confirmed that ELT's were on board. I guess it's up to each country to decide whether or not to use ELT's.

I believe Air France 447 carried ELT's but they weren't detected.

There's no evidence flight MH-370 crashed, although it could've smacked the water so hard that it disabled emergency beacons.

If they were US / Chinese engineers seems to narrow the field as who’s behind this

RE: Patents (who cares) - Don’t think any country cares if they can gain the technology.

Also can’t buy in to the thought that China, US, Isreal, U.K. Russia don’t already know where the plane is but is more an issue of what or how to resolve at this point.

And if any intelligence agency knew the facts I doubt the 1st place they’d call would be the media.

This is absolute BS.

I have reviewed the patent in question and it has nothing to do with EW at all.

Freescale, (old Motorola Semi) makes parts, “electronic jelly beans”,not whole systems as Motorola still does. These guys are process people, very valuable, but not systems people. There is a world of difference.

Even if they were RF guys they would know only make how to make the parts and have little or no idea of how to create a system beyond a general EE.

In my Professional Opinion, (I do this for a living), the patent in question is valuable, but I would only place its value at around 3M for equity purposes. A maximum of 10M absolute tops.

Yeah. We've had systems that could do this (Deceptive ECM)since the 70’s, maybe earlier. The term “stealth” is very broad. We couldn't use a repeater to make a platform invisible but we could move it's position (RGPO range gate pull off). Very handy in anti-ship missile defense.

The plane was shot down by a space based laser. Could have been ours and we were sending a message to China to not try anything while we deal with Russia. Could have been the Russians and they were sending a message to us that if we want a we in Ukraine, have at it. Or it could have been China’s and they were sending us a message saying we no longer own space and boo freakin hoo. Thats what happens when you shut down your space program.

It’s as good a theory as any.
