Why could the US NAVY accurately predict the track of hurricane IRMA? / 1PacificRedwood on Irma / Dane Wigington / NASA Worldview: The progression of hurricane Irma / Sea Based X-Band Radar

Ask yourself why the US Navy was able to accurately predict the track of hurricane Irma?  The ‘spaghetti models’ (above top) from Thursday Sept.7, 2017 – 11am, show that the Navy NVGM was predicting that Irma would move up the west coast of Florida, while the other models are forecasting the east coast.

(Sun.) Irma had been moving Westbound all day until about 3:00 PM PDT when the storm started to veer to the WNW. Tonight Irma is moving to the NW, and in the maps we can see exactly what has happened: Blocking high pressure was installed directly in the Westbound path of Irma and on the Southwest side of Irma causing a bow in the storm’s outer moisture bands, causing the storm to veer to the North.

More astonishing is the fact that the moisture tails of both Irma and Jose are being completely blocked from merging into a giant upper level low pressure vortex in the North Atlantic. The bow in the moisture field on the West side of Irma, the evaporation pattern and the disruption in the counterclockwise moisture flow pattern on the Western side of the storm tell us exactly how this storm is being steered. There is strong clockwise rotation on the outer bands as well which is a big clue to what is going on. The fix is in and Florida will be a disaster area by tomorrow night. Disasters and terrorism have become a big business in America today. The SAME mechanism of installing blocking high pressure to protect Florida could have been used to reroute Irma but was not. Irma is being steering into Florida.

Though countless forms of anthropogenic damage to the climate system have all taken their toll, now the full fury of weather warfare is being released on the US population. Paradigm disintegration is not coming, it is here, and will continue to unfold. So many will only choose to wake up when there is no other option, such is the nature of humanity. Weather cataclysm is unfolding all over the world, this is just the beginning. Could the power structure also be waging biological warfare in the flooded aftermath of countless extreme weather events?  How much of the power structure’s agenda is yet unknown? How dire is the equation we collectively face? The latest installment of Global Alert News…

060109-N-3019M-012…The heavy lift vessel MV Blue Marlin with its deck cargo of the Sea Based X-Band Radar enters Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, after completing a 15,000-mile journey from Corpus Christi, Texas, on Jan. 9, 2006. The Sea Based X-Band Radar is a combination of the world’s largest phased array X-band radar carried aboard a mobile, ocean-going semi-submersible oil platform. The radar is capable of highly advanced, ballistic missile detection while discriminating a hostile warhead from decoys and countermeasures. The platform, larger than a football field, will undergo minor modifications, maintenance and routine inspections in Pearl Harbor before completing its voyage to its homeport of Adak, Alaska, in the Aleutian Islands.

WIKI: SBX-1 is part of the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system under development by the MDA. The decision to place the system on a mobile sea-based platform was intended to allow the vessel to be moved to areas where it is needed for enhanced missile defense. Fixed radars provide coverage for a very limited area due to the curvature of the Earth. However, the same limitation applies to the SBX. SBX’s primary task is discrimination of enemy warheads from decoys, followed by precision tracking of the identified warheads. Testing has raised doubts about the system’s ability to perform these tasks, to deal with multiple targets, and to report accurately to command authorities.[1]
The vessel has many small radomes for various communications tasks and a large central dome that encloses a phased-array, 1,800 tonne (4,000,000 pound) X band radar antenna. The small radomes are rigid, but the central dome is not – the flexible cover is supported by positive air pressure amounting to a few inches of water. The amount of air pressure is variable depending on weather conditions.

The radar antenna itself is described as being 384 m2 (4,130 sq ft). It has 45,000[2] solid-state transmit-receive modules mounted on an octagonal flat base which can move ±270 degrees in azimuth and 0 to 85 degrees elevation (although software currently limits the maximum physical elevation to 80 degrees). The maximum azimuth and elevation velocities are approximately 5-8 degrees per second. In addition to the physical motion of the base, the beam can be electronically steered off bore-sight (details classified).
There are currently 22,000 modules installed on the base. Each module has one transmit-receive feed horn and one auxiliary receive feed horn for a second polarization, totaling 44,000 feedhorns. The base is roughly 2/3 populated, with space for installation of additional modules. The current modules are concentrated toward the center to minimize grating lobes. This configuration allows it to support the very-long-range target discrimination and tracking that GMD’s midcourse segment requires. The radar is never pointed at land, for the safety of the inhabitants.[2]
In addition to the power consumed by the radar, the thrusters which propel the vessel are electric and require substantial power. The maximum speed is approximately 8 knots (9.2 mph; 15 km/h). To support this and all other electrical equipment, the vessel currently has six 3.6-megawatt generators (12-cylinder Caterpillar diesels). The generators are in two compartments, one port and one starboard.

The radar is derived from the radar used in the THAAD theater ballistic missile defense system, and is a part of the layered ballistic missile defense (BMDS) program of the United States Missile Defense Agency (MDA). One important difference from Aegis is the use of X band in the SBX. Aegis uses S band, and Patriot uses the higher-frequency C band. The X band frequency is higher still, so its shorter wavelength enables finer resolution of tracked objects.
The radar was described by Lt. Gen Trey Obering (former director of MDA) as being able to track an object the size of a baseball over San Francisco in California from Chesapeake Bay in Virginia, approximately 2,900 miles (4,700 km) away.[3][4] The radar will guide land-based missiles from Alaska and California, as well as in-theater assets, depending on the mission.
The vessel is classed by ABS and has the IMO number of 8765412.

SBX departing Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on March 31, 2006
The first such vessel is scheduled to be based in Adak Island, Alaska, part of the Aleutian Islands. From that location it will be able to track missiles launched toward the US from both North Korea and China. Although her homeport is in Alaska, she will be tasked with moving throughout the Pacific Ocean to support her mission. The hull code number given to the SBX vessel, “SBX-1,” indicates the possibility of further units of the class. In circumstances when a vessel is required to be continually on duty over a long period of time, common naval practice is to have at least three units of the type available to allow for replenishment, repair and overhaul. Three further vessels of the CS-50/Moss Sirius design were under construction or contract at the Severodvinsk Shipyard in Russia as of early 2007, but were configured for oil production. On May 11, 2011, Col. Mark Arn, the SBX project manager for MDA, said that the “SBX is the only one of its kind and there are no current plans for another one”.[5] In July 2011, a Missile Defense Agency spokesman explained that other, smaller radars in the Pacific will “pick up the slack” while SBX is in port with its radar turned off.[6]
