"Unprecedented" 13 Aircraft Simply Vanish from Radar

Disquieting and curious?
 The "undprecedented" disappearances happened on 5 June and 10 June, hitting control rooms in Austria and neighbouring countries.
The relevant EU agencies have been asked to investigate, Austria's flight safety organisation said yesterday.
 Marcus Pohanka of Austro Control said the height, location, identities and other information for a total of 13 aircraft suddenly vanished.
He said several neighbouring countries had similar incidents and the EU's Eurocontrol and European Aviation Safety Agency has been asked for a probe.
He did not identify the other nations. But the daily Kurier said flight controllers in Munich and Karlsruhe in Germany, and in Prague, the Czech Republic, also reported related problems.
The newspaper cited unnamed experts as saying interference between the aircrafts' transponders and ground control was apparently to blame.
Pohanka declined to confirm that or to say which airlines and planes were involved.
But he suggested that at least some may have been long-distance passenger aircraft, based on their high altitudes.
There was no danger at any time, he said, adding that extra air controllers were immediately called to their posts, where workers established voice contact with pilots and widened flight corridors.
So... what's going on here!?!?




The "undprecedented" disappearances happened on 5 June and 10 June
For almost half an hour, 13 aircraft vanished from air traffic controllers' radar screens as they flew at high altitude above Europe, it has been revealed.

  1. Has anyone linked this to the disappearance of the Malaysian Airlines flight, I wonder?

  2. More testing in progress? If the reports are true, then the technology being used works. Disappearing craft from radar has many potentials, mostly bad and probably for military purposes.

  3. I thought of this.

  4. Penny, something just like this happened in the LA-San Diego airspace maybe three weeks ago. The excuse offered then, too, was transponders. I actually don't think this was us, I'm more inclined to think it was a Russian warning -- but I've been wrong before. Besides, we're too stupid to heed any warnings...

  5. NATA wargames and Russian counter wargames right next door. This is either a direct electronic warfare attack or just unintentional spillover.

    Which side did it I do not know.

    If I had to guess... Russia jamming the NATA gamers and unintentional blinding of civilian ATC assets. But could just as well be NATO and blame it on someone else for political reasons.

    Nothing new. This does happen during these types of situations. Nothing to really worry about.

    One of my jobs in the military was a radar opperator. 90% of that training was in electronic warfare.

  6. The Slovak state Air Traffic Services company said on Friday that the brief disappearance of planes from radar screens on June 5 and 10 was connected to a military exercise whose goal was "the interruption of radio communication frequencies."

    It did not identify the military force organising the exercise, but Austrian media said it was NATO.


    but... NATO says not to blame for planes vanishing from radar

    using the phrase 'the interruption of radio communication frequencies.' is a half truth to cover their mistake. Radar is radio. radar = radio detection and ranging. Radar and most air to gound communication is in a different frequency range. Most air to ground and air to air communication is in the upper VHF to lower UHF range. Around 100 - 400 MHz But AWACS radar uses 2.9 - 3.1 GHz which is at the very top of the UHF band. Civilian air traffic contron uses between 1 - 4 GHz.

    Radia/Radar jamming, to be effective, must be in a very narrow frequency range or it will not get through certain thresholds set in the recievers. The greater the frequency range you are trying to jam the less power for each frequency so the jammer will use a very specific freq. against their target. So for them to say it was just communication jamming that blinded the radar is a lie.
