NORTH KOREAN ROCKET FAILURE WAS THE BEST OUTCOME (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by pragnos @, Monday, April 17, 2017, 01:23 @ chazzz

Chazzz;

All of these missiles whether civilian or military have self destruct systems on board that must reliably respond to destruct codes sent from what used to be called "The Range Safety Officer". These days how hard would it be to hack those codes and when a launch is meant to be a political statement, it can be terminated and codes could even be planted to make it look like it was a component failure requiring flight termination. I suspect some spectacular recent rocket failures in USA, Russia, and the EU agency were demonstrations of the ability on someone's part to hack the self destruct codes at will.

Certainly, hardware quality issues are a likely problem, but they are not as likely to happen on demand as a hacking could deliver. The horror show needs to stop somehow someway. --pragnos
