Mapping System Tools Used By Usaf?

Sun Aug 02, 2009 7:41 pm

Hi,

I just wish to know what mapping tool program is used in this picture from the Vandenberg AFB command center?

Thanks.

I don't know but he's got the orbit for ISS (NORAD #25544) up on the screen....

It looks like the NORAD global tracking system. He has his e-mail up on the other screen, too. That look like MS Outlook.

Its not MS Outlook. Just save the image and zoom in. The second screen on the right, is not MS, it looks like UNIX because I can tell by the window borders. It has to be Solaris or an Irix system.

But what about the screen to the left?

That's an easy question. The program is fairly new, and showing promising results. It's called:

Skynet.

I use Falcon View all the time, that is definitely not Falcon View.

Didn't you read my previous post? It's called Skynet.

Irix system.

The SGI logo on bottom of monitor is a bit of a giveaway!

Skynet. I did a search for it and I only come up with Terminator 2 results but no mapping software related to Skynet. Do you have a link?

hey guys....

Take a look at this one.....This is very very similar to the pic that I posted. I had downloaded this software and boy.......Great application...Try it out.

I just wanted a satelite tracking application similar to the picture above....But this one is probably the closest to the picture above.

Falcon View, I beleive does not track satelites...Dont know about that...

Dude, I'm not talking about Hollywood crap. Skynet is a real freakin' program. Hollywood just happens to have featured a movie with a program sharing the same name. You are not going to be able to just google this stuff!

Wardialer, what you need to understand is this: Skynet is a very sensitive program, and information on it's design and functions are not going to be readily available to the public domain.

But what I can tell you is this: the program is very advanced and draws upon technology that is way out of my league. Very futuristic stuff. The program is designed around a central CPU, and the plan is to incorporate it into numerous elements of the military. What's amazing about the program is that it will "learn" at a geometric rate!

I've heard some rumors that they are discussing the possibility of outfitting the stealth bomber fleet with the program. This move will help move to the arena of unmanned bombers. And the program producer says that it will allow the USAF to achieve a perfect operational record.

Anyway, some flyboy general over in Colorado is heading up the program. Pretty geewiz stuff. But on a sidenote, I met the general once and his daughter is pretty hot. She's a vet out in LA.

So yeah, any other questions?

Wardialer... just so there is no confusion, the reason some people are a little shocked by your comments, and even laughing at them... is because the entire notion of you getting your hands on Skynet material is... well... laughable!

You need to understand that this is a very secretive project, and you're not going to just be granted free access to documents detailing its design!!

Hell.. you should feel pretty lucky that you have the opportunity to just view the program via that photo! But trust me, you will be hearing a lot about Skynet in the near future. Just sit tight and have a little patience!  Smile

Hi again.

Ok, I got a tiny bit of info and I know its not detailed.
Pretty much just only describes the backround of it.

You did not read the whole article, did you. This too is about the Terminator movies (check the bottom of the page). As UH60 mentioned, you ain't gonne find much information as it is classified. If you did find something you'd be silenced.

I must say though, the USAF was really smart to name one of their programs after a similar program used in a movie. Makes it a lot harder to filter the real information from the obvious terminator references. They should do that more often. There is plenty of choise for interesting projects: project Men in Black, project Stargate, project Valkyrie, Blair Witch project.
