Killexams : How a Solar Storm Could Bring Your Plane Crashing Down

Photo Illustration by Thomas Levinson/The Daily Beast/Getty

A passenger jet is flying steadily over Alaska when the pilot notices that the coordinates on the console look incorrect. After a few seconds, the radiation counter begins to tick up. Almost simultaneously, a warning from the local air traffic control arrives, letting flights know that an intense solar event has started. The pilot realizes that the plane should move a few thousand feet lower and asks the traffic control for permission, only to find that communication has cut out. Dozens of other pilots are experiencing the same issue in their own cockpits at the moment.

This is a hypothetical scenario—as far as has been documented by modern aviation records, nothing of this sort of impending disaster has ever actually happened. But according to reports by aviation regulators, the issue is not whether it will happen, but when.

Eruptive events on the sun’s surface do not directly affect life on Earth but they are a known threat to aviation and other technologies. “The largest solar radiation storms can result in enhanced radiation at aviation flight levels,” Hazel Bain, a research scientist at the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) at the the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, told The Daily Beast. “This can pose a hazard for flight crew and passengers as well as for avionics. High-frequency radio communications in the polar regions can also be impacted.” Awareness of so-called space weather effects has been increasing over the last years, with regulatory bodies and airlines scrambling to catch up.

The Sun Is Pummeling Earth. Now What? Solar Storms for Dummies

Incidents are admittedly infrequent. But in the rare instances they occur, the effects have the potential to be devastating. In December 2006, GPS receivers on the whole sunlit side of Earth, including several aircraft, lost signal for half an hour; their reception had been overwhelmed by radio waves from the sun, which in the case of an airplane in a storm can mean blindness. In November 2015, air traffic control over southern Sweden was down for hours and the whole country closed its airspace for more than an hour; that was in late afternoon, and experts believe that one radar had found itself malfunctioning due to direct line of sight with the setting sun.

Both events were the result of intense bursts of light on the sun’s surface, one of the kinds of phenomena that make up space weather. Space weather involves the abrupt release of X-rays, highly energetic subatomic particles, and big chunks of plasma (magnetized solar material) into space. If their course brings them to Earth’s upper atmosphere, they have many ways to affect technology on and, particularly, around the planet.

Fast particles zipping through space, such as protons, can hit atoms in the superconductors in airplanes’ and satellites’ circuitry, at high enough altitudes where the planet’s atmosphere is too thin to slow them down. Or space weather can form irregularities in Earth’s ionosphere, a layer of high concentrations of ions and free electrons—stopping the reflection of radio waves and cutting off communications between technologies. Highly energized particles could damage satellites and lead to a cascade of problems further down in aircraft navigation. And in the worst case scenarios, space weather events could inflict air travelers with high amounts of radiation, perhaps more than one year of natural levels in just a few seconds.

As the sun’s surface is in a constant state of commotion, most of these events are frequent but negligible. The big ones, which can incite geomagnetic storms, appear a few times per year on average. But they are difficult to forecast and often seem to appear at random. The sun’s activity follows a quasi-regular fluctuation every eleven years, known as the solar cycle.

Even rarer are the notorious superstorms, known to occur around once in a century. The impact of superstorms is gargantuan, since they can affect airliners and other technologies and equipment around the world, all at once. The U.K. Civil Aviation Authority estimates the global aviation industry would need two weeks to recover from a superstorm.

Space weather wasn’t really on humankind’s radar until we began to develop more advanced forms of technology, particularly electrical technology. Before the 19th century, the only sign of a solar superstorm would be the Northern or Southern Lights—auroras extending unusually far from the poles.

The Danger of Space Weather and Our Journey to the Heart of the Sun

During the Carrington Event of 1895, the strongest solar storm ever recorded, witnesses saw the Northern Lights stretching down all the way to the Caribbean. People also recorded electric surges in telegraph lines. In some instances the electric current was strong enough for the telegraph network to continue working without power supply.

Since the mid-20th century, several moderately strong storms have resulted in electrical blackouts (like the one that left Quebec in the dark for nine hours in March 1989) and satellite malfunctions (the most accurate case being Starlink’s early this year).

But perhaps the craziest effect of space weather was almost starting a war. In 1967 the radars of the USA’s ballistic missiles early-warning system were jammed simultaneously by a massive solar radio burst and the accompanying geomagnetic storm, a perceived act of war which led to nuclear bombers preparing for takeoff before space weather forecasters realized the actual cause in time and halted any action.

In aviation, airplanes have become more susceptible to solar events as they rely increasingly on satellites for their operations and as microelectronics components decrease in size. Awareness has grown since the late 1990s thanks to the drastic increase in flights over the North Pole, a region beset by its own set of issues. Transpolar routes between North America and Asia reduce the travel time, but anything flying in the polar regions loses line of sight with geostationary satellites that facilitate communications. Those planes then have to rely on high-frequency radio, precisely the kind of signal that stops propagating in the ionosphere during solar storms.

A Geomagnetic Storm Just Wrecked 40 SpaceX Satellites

In addition, North America is further burdened by the magnetic north pole being located over the continent, which ends up exposing the region to more acute space weather impacts as a result.

To ensure better protection against space weather events, the United Nations’ International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has begun to take a more active role in accurate years. . According to Bain, starting in 2019, the SWPC began issuing space weather advisories tailored specifically to ICAO’s requirements. In addition, two global centers were set up in late 2019 and another one in 2022, uniting the forecasting and alert efforts of 16 countries. “Primary responsibility for these advisories rotates through each of the four centers,” said Bain. Alerts are issued around the clock.

Once a notable space weather event starts and an alert goes out, in most cases the impact on flights in the air can be avoided by changing routes (to avoid the polar regions and large irregularities in the ionosphere), flying at lower altitudes (where the atmosphere provides extra layers of protection from radiation), or simply grounding flights and having them wait the storm out. These countermeasures, however, come at a considerable cost because of longer flight times and crew shifts, missed flights and increased fuel consumption. And there is always the issue of simultaneous impact on a large number of flights, adding considerations such as the payoff of changing routes on the fly against the possibility of traffic conflicts.

According to experts, we usually need 12 to 24 hours of advance warning to efficiently reschedule flights. And for the foreseeable future, we won’t be able to predict space weather threats that are far ahead for a very long time. “Aviation radiation models are currently capable of producing ‘nowcasts,’ but further research is required to provide users with longer lead times,” said Bain.

Furthermore, the beginning of the ICAO service has benefited from the “solar minimum” of the solar cycle—years with weak and sparse solar events. This is soon to change as we are entering the expected solar maximum. Solar activity is almost certainly going to increase, yet we still know very little about the individual events themselves, which do not occur at regular intervals. Astrophysicists still do not know how to predict them.

Still, increased awareness brings a demand for more standardization and coordination between space weather forecasters, and aviation regulators. “The education is ongoing and the aviation community is still working on understanding and incorporating [the] information,” Robert Steenburgh, space scientist at the SWPC, told The Daily Beast. Guidelines by ICAO and national regulators about the use of the alerts are still mere recommendations; however, now regular interaction takes place.

This September, for instance, the first space weather Testbed Experiment for aviation was held at the SWPC. “The workshop was focused on the needs of the aviation community,” said Bain. “Representatives from the major U.S. airlines, dispatch and communication centers, pilots, [the SWPC] forecast office, and research came together to discuss the new ICAO advisories, discuss how they could be improved and learn about current scientific capabilities.”

The White House Admits It: We Might Need to Block the Sun to Stop Climate Change

Regulators encourage airlines to develop protocols individually, “since these must be relevant to the specific equipment, experience and knowledge of the operator, and to the route profile”, according to the U.K. Civil Aviation Authority. These procedures would regulate actions from pre- and in-flight decisions to post-flight checks. The overall degree of preparedness in the industry seems to vary.

According to the same report, certain—but not all—aviation technologies, such as communications and satellite-based navigation, also routinely adapt to space weather impacts. Resilience is gradually built in hardware and electronics. Such a case is the relevant specs for the design and testing of airplane systems, issued by the International Electrotechnical Commission since 2006 and updated a few times already.

And thus, we return to our pilot caught in a geomagnetic storm and left without contact with the air traffic control, now flipping through the space weather manual. They find that the probability of considerable impact from the storm, meaning high radiation dose and malfunctioning of systems, is lower than the probability of conflict with other flights, should they change altitude unannounced. The plane sails on towards the North Pole without any more issues.

Killexams : RCMP contract awarded to company with ties to Chinese government, feds to review process

Federal officials say they will review a contract awarded to a Canadian company last year, given its parent organization's ties to the Chinese government.

Ontario-based Sinclair Technologies Inc. received a contract in October 2021 worth $549,637 for radio frequency filters.

CTV News also found a number of other contracts, worth upwards of $90,000 each awarded to Sinclair Technologies since its parent company was bought in 2017, including with the RCMP, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and the Department of National Defence.

The DND contract has no value associated with it but involved the delivery of antennas to bases. Contracts suggest the government has been awarding contracts to Sinclair since at least 2009.

In 2017, Hytera, which is partially owned by the Chinese government, purchased Sinclair Technologies' parent company, Norsat.

Not only are Hytera's products banned from being sold or imported in the United States over national security concerns, but the company also faces 21 espionage-related offences, including conspiring with former Motorola employees to steal trade secrets.

The RCMP provided a statement to CTV News saying the force's radio communications are protected with end-to-end encryption and that radio frequency filtration equipment "poses no security concerns nor does it allow access to radio communications."

"The contract was awarded in accordance with Federal Government procurement policies and regulations, and in accordance with the Trade Agreements," the statement reads.

"PSPC (Public Services and Procurement Canada) acted as the Contracting Authority for the Standing Offer Arrangement. The RCMP supported PSPC to ensure operational requirements were met."

CTV News has reached out to PSPC and DND but has not received a response. Fisheries and Oceans Canada was unable to respond by CTV's deadline.

In a statement, Sinclair said it is a trusted and independent company. It cited privacy reasons for being unable to comment further.

The revelation comes as the federal government attempts to take a tougher stance on China, unveiling its Indo-Pacific Strategy in November, which refers to China as "an increasingly disruptive global power."

During a media availability in Montreal on Wednesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he found it "disconcerting" that amid warnings about foreign interference, parts of Canada's civil service "were signing contracts that have questionable levels of security for our operations and our national security institutions like the RCMP."

"So absolutely we're going to be following up on this, finding out first of all what needs to be done to ensure that our communications technology is secure but also make sure we're figuring out how this could continue to happen. And make sure Canada is not signing contracts with the lowest bidder that then turn around and leave (us) exposed to security flaws," Trudeau said.

"We will have some test questions for the independent public service that signed these contracts and we'll make sure that this is changed going forward, it's high time that happened."

In response to many inquiries during question period Wednesday on Parliament Hill, Public Services and Procurement Minister Helena Jaczek said, "Of course, we are aware of the concerns surrounding the RCMP's contract with Sinclair Technologies and our government is looking into them and examining all potential options. We do take all measures to ensure the integrity of our infrastructure very, very seriously."

Speaking to reporters on his way to question period, Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre said the contract should be cancelled.

"I mean, it's almost something that you'd expect to be out of a spy novel, but characters in spy novels would never be that incompetent," Poilievre said.

"So the prime minister has to take the responsibility for his own government, rather than trying to blame everyone else all the time, and explain why he has put in place a system that allowed this contract to go ahead."

He added: "I think that we as a government, we as a country, should not allow countries and governments and government-owned enterprises that are known for espionage to sell technology that is related to our telecommunications in this country, because that raises risks of espionage and other security problems."

Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino told reporters on Parliament Hill that he has instructed officials to look at the details of the contract and review how it was awarded.

"We're eyes wide open about the threats that are posed by hostile states and non-state actors, and that includes the PRC (People's Republic of China)," he said.

"One of the reasons why we put in place a process that looks at the potential opportunities or vectors for foreign interference in the context of contracts, is to secure Canadian national interests, to secure our national security."

Speaking on CTV's Power Play on Wednesday, former national security analyst Stephanie Carvin said the concern is not only that a Chinese-controlled company has received many federal government contracts, but that it is potentially undercutting Canadian companies, as well.

"You don't want to have a Chinese-controlled company basically providing the technology that's going to be used in very sensitive national security operations," Carvin said.

Also appearing on CTV's Power Play, U.S. ambassador to Canada David Cohen said he does not believe the awarding of these contracts erodes confidence in Canada, using the example of a federal government order in November for three Chinese companies to divest their investments in Canadian critical minerals.

"The whole world of cybersecurity, of Chinese ownership of American companies, Canadian companies, of contracting with Chinese-owned and controlled companies, is unbelievably dangerous and unbelievably complicated, and the key thing is whether the sensitivity is there to be able to look at those situations and to take action when you need to do that," he said.

Killexams : Biden-Harris Administration Announces Groundbreaking Joint Initiative to Drive Investment to Entrepreneurs Scaling Critical and Emerging Technologies

Washington D.C., Dec. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced a new joint effort to establish the Small Business Investment Company Critical Technologies Initiative (SBICCT), designed to grow investment in critical technologies vital to U.S. national security. This new partnership will support the Biden-Harris Administration’s whole-of-government effort to bolster America’s leadership in global innovation and to strengthen our national security by incubating and scaling technologies.

Administrator Guzman joined Defense Secretary Austin at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, California, where they held a joint letter signing event, announcing this groundbreaking milestone in the longstanding partnership between SBA and DoD.

“SBA and DoD’s new historic initiative will help make sure America maintains its edge in technologies critical to national security,” said SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman. “DoD’s newly established Office of Strategic Capital will leverage SBA’s expertise and successes aligning and scaling public and private capital through its Small Business Investment Company program to address funding gaps in the innovation ecosystem. We are proud to be deepening SBA’s longstanding partnership with DoD to drive forward America’s technological and defensive strength – and in turn America’s national security and prosperity.”

“Earlier this week, I announced the creation of the Department’s Office of Strategic Capital and I’m delighted that OSC’s first official activity will be a partnership with the Small Business Administration,” said Defense Secretary Austin. “This partnership will help secure funding for critical areas for national defense—and ensure that our warfighters get the capabilities they need, before they need them.”

Underpinning this partnership is a new regulation that the SBA has proposed, which expands the SBIC program and introduces a new financial instrument called the Accrual Debenture. This instrument is designed to align with the cash flow patterns of startups, and supports the long duration often required to incubate and scale technology investments. Many defense technologies require heavy research and development investment, and this instrument is designed to attract the patient private capital necessary to support these innovations.

The partnership is made official through a letter of intent between SBA and DOD, which advances the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to growing our national security innovation base and establishing the U.S. as the world leader in innovative technologies.

Killexams : New International Consensus on CGM Clinical Trial Metrics Aims to Spur Diabetes Treatment Advances

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 6, 2022 /CNW/ -- The diaTribe Foundation, Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD), and the Time in Range Coalition announced today a new international consensus regarding continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) metrics for clinical trials to help accelerate the development of new and improved treatments for people living with diabetes.

The groundbreaking consensus statement, endorsed by numerous leading US and international diabetes organizations, including the American Association of Clinical Endocrinology, American Diabetes Association, Association of Diabetes Care and Education Specialists, DiabetesIndia, European Association for the Study of Diabetes, International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes, Japan Diabetes Society, and JDRF, was published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology on December 6, 2022. The article, "Continuous glucose monitoring and metrics for clinical trials: an international consensus statement," is available here.

"People living with diabetes need better options to treat and manage their disease, and one essential tool to achieve that goal is the use of CGMs, which help individuals know if their blood glucose levels are in range, above range, or below range," said Julie Heverly, senior director of the Time in Range Coalition.

"Increasing time in range (TIR) has been found to decrease serious and life-threatening complications, enhance daily disease management, and Excellerate the lives of people living with diabetes," she said. "Standardizing the use of CGM data in clinical trials of diabetes therapies will help ensure that the next generation of treatments are focused on increasing patients' TIR and, therefore, quality of life."

There is international recognition of the importance of TIR as an actionable metric for daily diabetes management and a means to Excellerate long-term health outcomes. As such, earlier this year, the diaTribe Foundation, ATTD, and the Time in Range Coalition convened a group of international experts to discuss and reach consensus on the role of CGMs and CGM-derived metrics in clinical trials for diabetes treatment.

"As diabetes technology continues to advance, the collection, analysis, and reporting of CGM data in clinical trials needs to be standardized so clinicians, scientists, and regulators across the globe can incorporate it into their decision-making to the benefit of individuals living with diabetes," said Prof. Tadej Battelino, head of endocrinology at UMC Ljubljana and ATTD co-chair, who helped lead the international consensus committee of experts.

This historic consensus includes 23 recommendations for optimizing CGM-derived glucose data in clinical studies, and the parameters and specific glucose metrics researchers should evaluate and report, collection of baseline data and timing, information on clinically relevant changes in key glucose metrics over time, and training for both trial staff and participants.

Jim Carroll, CEO of The diaTribe Foundation, noted, "In 1993, when the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) established A1C as the gold standard for diabetes management, continuous glucose monitors were merely a dream. Today, the diabetes community benefits greatly from this exceptional technology and this consensus is the next important development in the effort to develop and deliver much-needed new diabetes therapies."
