Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators of Abel Danger

Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 140 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on Serco‘s alleged use of Demon face-recognition software at a meeting in WTC#1 (North Tower) on the morning of 9/11 to its various ‘sheikh-down’ shareholders including an as-yet unidentified sheikh representing the GOVERNMENT OF SAUDI ARABIA via its funds.
SERCO GROUP PLC: List of Subsidiaries AND Shareholders! [Note agents for Northern Trust and the Teachers (TIAA) Pension Fund would have met with agents of the government of Saudi Arabia on the 47th floor of WTC 1 on 9/11]
McConnell believes that the late and former DOD contract auditor Stephen Paddock launched a junket-room service on October 12 2000 by liquidating assets on the USS Cole in Aden Harbour with an 8(a)-company bomb and ordering the Senior Executive Service colleagues of McConnell’s sister Kristine “Con Air” Marcy to time stamp images of deaths for bettors on the federal bridge certification authority network.
McConnell alleges that Paddock set up 8(a) 9/11 junket rooms with CAI Private Equity Group investors including the late Gen. Al Haig, 7th Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, and used Demon software on the federal bridge to record bets by high rollers such as the as-yet unidentified Saudi sheikh or the Greek Life associates of Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi) – Serco‘s former investment banker at N M Rothschild & Sons – and Bill Clinton (Phi Beta Kappa) on the time of victim deaths through attacks on the WTC by Boeing drones or the subsequent demolitions apparently authorized by the Twin Towers master servicer Wells Fargo.
Call Field McConnell for a SMEAC – “S” Situation, “M” Mission, “E” Execution, “A” Administration / Logistics, “C” Command/Signal – briefing on the links between Serco, the Senior Executive Service, CAI investors, Wilbur Ross’s Greek Life associates and the late Stephen Paddock’s 8(a) junket-room bridge to 9/11.

“Saudi arrest of Binladin family scion shatters royal entente
By AYA BATRAWY, ASSOCIATED PRESS
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Nov 10, 2017, 3:52 PM ET
The Associated Press
FILE – In this 1998 file photo made available on March 19, 2004, Osama bin Laden is seen at a news conference in Khost, Afghanistan. The reported arrest on Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017 of Bakr Binladin, who was Osama bin Laden’s half brother and chairman of the expansive Saudi Binladin Group, signals the end of the Al Saud-Binladin family alliance. His arrest also speaks to the larger demands being made on the business community to pay into the crown prince’s economic vision in this era of lower oil prices.

Among those caught in the unprecedented arrests this week of top princes, wealthy businessmen and senior officials was the scion of one of Saudi Arabia’s most recognizable families: Bakr Binladin, the chairman of the kingdom’s pre-eminent contractor — and Osama bin Laden’s half-brother.
It was a stunning end to a decades-old alliance between the ruling Al Saud and Binladin families that saw the Saudi Binladin Group secure a near-monopoly on mega-expansion projects in Islam’s two holiest sites, Mecca and Medina, throughout the reigns of successive Saudi monarchs.
The government says 201 people have been taken into custody in the purge, which comes amid an anti-corruption probe it says uncovered at least $100 billion in graft and embezzlement.
Saudi critics and experts have called the arrests a bold and risky move by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman aimed at consolidating power as he sidelines potential rivals, silences critics and dismantles alliances built with other branches of the royal family.
The 32-year-old crown prince, who is the son of King Salman and is popularly known by his initials MBS, is leading the anti-corruption investigation. He’s also the force behind the so-called Vision 2030 plan, a blueprint for how to restructure the country and wean it from its dependence on oil revenue.
The arrests of Binladin and the others not only signal the end of old alliances, but also speak to the larger demands being made on the business community to pay into the crown prince’s economic vision in an era of lower oil prices.
“This is the beginning of the rise of economic nationalism,” said Ayham Kamel, head of the Middle East and North Africa division of the Eurasia Group.
A centerpiece of that plan is NEOM, a $500 billion project that promises to be the world’s most futuristic and technologically-advanced city, which was unveiled by the crown prince at a headline-grabbing global investment conference in Saudi Arabia last month.
But instead of receiving major pledges to the project by Saudi business leaders, MBS “got deafening silence”, Kamel said.
Since the 1950’s, the Binladins have been the royal family’s go-to contractor for some of its most sensitive projects, including construction of private palaces in the immediate boon years after oil was discovered in Saudi Arabia.
As the royal family spent lavishly on trips abroad and new palaces at home, the Binladins became their creditors, as well as contractors.
Reliable and discreet, the Binladin Group would go on to build confidential defense projects in the kingdom, as well as landmark skyscrapers, universities, a military hospital, an airport, a financial district and much more.
Run as a private company by members of the large Binladin family, the firm is no stranger to political upheaval and changes in the kingdom. In fact, part of its success has been in its ability to adapt to the whims of kings and princes.
“The Binladins were able to remain essential to the royal family despite very dramatic events within the royal family,” said Steve Coll, author of “The Bin Ladens: An Arabian Family in the American Century.”
The Binladins were also no strangers to controversy. They weathered the blow to the family name and reputation after the 9/11 attacks in New York masterminded by Osama bin Laden, a son of family patriarch Mohammed Binladin.
In 1931, the elder Binladin, a poor Yemeni migrant who had traveled north in the 1920s to the Red Sea port of Jiddah, founded the company that bears his name. He married some two dozen women and fathered more than 50 children, including the future al-Qaida leader.
After the 9/11 attacks, the Binladins hired lawyers and public relations specialists in the U.S. to try to communicate their disdain for Osama bin Laden, and their willingness to cooperate with Washington, Coll said.
In the 1990s, under pressure from the Saudi government, Bakr Binladin oversaw proceedings to strip his brother of all his shares in the family’s company and wealth, a move that came as the kingdom stripped the al-Qaida leader of his nationality.
“Bakr achieved what he set out to do, which is he kept the company intact, he kept it legitimate in the international economy and went on to concentrate primarily on construction in the region, and in Saudi Arabia in particular,” Coll said.
The Binladin Group was crucial to Saudi rulers in 1979 when militants laid siege to Islam’s holiest site in Mecca for 15 days. The company, which had been working on expansion projects there, helped flush the rebels out of tunnels because they had the blueprints and maps, Coll said.
But while the Al Saud-Binladin alliance has been a pillar of how the royal family retained power over the years, the needs of the kingdom have changed, Kamel said.
“They helped the Al Saud family in their time of need, but the utility of that relationship has been exhausted,” he said. “It is no longer attractive for Al Saud to retain that, nor can they afford to.”
In 2015, the Binladin Group suffered two major blows: the collapse of oil prices and the collapse of one of its cranes.
The crane disaster killed 111 hajj pilgrims on the pristine marble floors of the Grand Mosque housing the cube-shaped Kaaba. The firm came under investigation, a travel ban was imposed on Bakr Binladin and the company remains embroiled in litigation to this day.
The collapse of oil prices delayed government payments to contractors, and by 2016, the Binladin Group was forced to cut tens of thousands of jobs. Disgruntled workers complained they had not been paid in months and hundreds took to the streets of Mecca in rare protests, setting company buses alight.
At the time, the company was in the midst of the largest expansion in the history of the Grand Mosque, a project initiated by the late King Abdullah that included the construction of one of the world’s tallest towers topped by a neon clock. The firm was also involved in controversial construction projects ordered by the king that historians say wiped out key traces of Mecca’s history dating back to the Prophet Muhammad.
In many ways, the Binladins were seen as part of the old guard— a part of the economy that was based on personal relationships and not transparent, Coll said.
As part of that system, the Binladin Group appeared to be doing well financially before the collapse of oil prices, though it does not disclose its figures. Bakr Binladin is known to have private planes and real estate around the world.
It may have cost the Binladins heavily as the crown prince moves to take down old alliances and power bases. “You could easily see them caught up in a story about corruption and privilege,” Coll said.”
“The USS Cole bombing was a terrorist attack against the United States Navy guided-missile destroyer USS Cole (DDG-67) on 12 October 2000, while it was being refueled in Yemen’s Aden harbor. Seventeen American sailors were killed and 39 injured in the deadliest attack against a United States naval vessel since 1987. The terrorist organization al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack. A U.S. judge has held Sudan liable for the attack, while another has released over $13 million in Sudanese frozen assets to the relatives of those killed. The United States Navy has reconsidered their rules of engagement in response to this attack.”

“SERCO: ‘The biggest company you’ve never heard of’
JULY 7, 2013 BY 21WIRE
21st Century Wire says…
As politicians asset-strip the public’s portfolio of properties, infrastructure and services, one multinational corporation has grown as a result – and its scope and reach may shock many people who have not been paying attention.
All around the globe, our governments are busy outsourcing public-sector services like health, education, police, prisons, money delivery and military – to the esteemed private sector. It’s sold to the public as a solution to avoiding higher taxes, while retaining better services. But it’s simply an accountancy shell game, where the government kicks the can down the road by spreading the bill to the taxpayer over a longer period of time, in order to avoid any large upfront payments – all the while, allowing a private corporation to extend its influence over society. This, by definition, is fascism.
They are called SERCO, and they run countries…

Kristine Mary, now a supergrade in the Office of Personnel Management, had her first chile 2 1/2 years ago, when she was a budget examiner in the Office of Management and Budget. At nights she was finishing up her law degree at George Washington University.
“My baby was due the 17th of December. My last exam was on the 15th. I went to work, took off a little early, took my exam, went home,wondering why I felt so bad. Imimmediately, I went into labor. It blew everybody’s mind that I could wrap up everything at work, wrap up everything at school and have my baby. That was of the all-time coup.”
“I was very conscious that all the men whe worked for me would go home and ask their wives what it’s like, so they would know how to deal with me. I assumed that. I don’t know that any of them did. I tried to keep my pregnancy secret as long as possible and have them find out I’ve been pregnant for four months and hadn’t behaved any differently.”
Mendenhall’s baby was due in early August. [????] “I now work from about 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Everybody at work has so afraid of being offensive, that they ignore it.”

“Sir Arthur Nicholas Winston Soames (born 12 February 1948), sometimes known as Nick Soames, is a British Conservative Party politician who has been the Member of Parliament for Mid Sussexsince 1997. He is a grandson of Sir Winston Churchill.
Soames was first elected to Parliament in 1983 for Crawley. He was Minister of State for the Armed Forces from 1994 to 1997 in the government of John Major. His main political interests are defence, international relations, rural affairs and industry.
Early life, education and military service
Soames was born in Croydon and is a grandson of the British prime minister Sir Winston Churchill, the son of Lord and Lady Soames, and a great-nephew of the founders of the Scout movement, Robert Baden-Powell and Olave Baden-Powell. His brother is the industrialist Rupert Soames.
In 1970, he was appointed Equerry to HRH The Prince of Wales; he has remained a close friend of the Prince ever since and publicly criticised Diana, Princess of Wales, during the couple’s estrangement. When Diana first accused the Prince of Wales of adultery with Camilla Parker Bowles, Soames told the BBC that the accusation, and Diana’s fear of being slandered by her husband’s courtiers, stemmed merely from Diana’s mental illness, and “the advanced stages of paranoia”. Charles later admitted his adultery and Soames apologised. When questioned by the inquest into the death of Diana, Soames said that he saw his job as “to speak up for the Prince of Wales”. He denied threatening Diana, and warning her, “accidents happen” in the months before she died.
In 1972, he left Kensington Palace and the army to work as a stockbroker. In 1974, he became a personal assistant; first to Sir James Goldsmith and then in 1976 to United States Senator Mark Hatfield, whose employ he left in 1978 to become a director of Bland Welch, Lloyd’s Brokers. Between 1979–81, he was an assistant director of the Sedgwick Group. He fought Central Dunbartonshire in Scotland in 1979, where Labour’s Hugh McCartney defeated him by 12,003 votes.”
“British defence contractor accused over hiring ex-child soldiers in Iraq
18 APRIL 2016 • 10:32AM
A major British private defence contractor may have recruited former child soldiers to work as security guards on American bases in Iraq, it has been alleged.
The claims against Aegis Defence Services are to be made in a Danish television documentary The Child Soldier’s New Job which is due to be broadcast later on Monday.
The documentary claims that Aegis, which is chaired by Sir Nicholas Soames, the Tory MP and grandson of Winston Churchill, hired some 2,500 mercenaries on as little as £10 a day in order to fulfil contracts to guard US military bases from 2004 onwards.
James Ellery, a former director of Aegis Defence Services between 2005 and 2015, told The Guardian that the company had not checked if the African mercenaries – mostly from Sierra Leone – had previously been child soldiers, and justified the hiring decision on cost.
“You probably would have a better force if you recruited entirely from the Midlands of England,” Mr Ellery, a former British army officer, told the newspaper.
“But it can’t be afforded. So you go from the Midlands of England to Nepalese etc etc, Asians, and then at some point you say I’m afraid all we can afford now is Africans.”
Mr Ellery added that under law child soldiers could not be held responsible for crimes they had committed as children, and that after 18 had a right to seek work freely – which Aegis had no right to deny.
“We would have been completely in error if, having gone to Sierra Leone, we excluded those people,” he added.
Mads Ellesøe, the film’s maker said he made the film because he wanted to make Western audiences “aware of the consequences of the privatisation of war”.
Graham Binns, senior managing director at GardaWorld, a Canadian company which took over Aegis last year, told the Guardian that his company had worked with carefully vetted and authorised local agents in Africa.
“Aegis takes issues pertinent to our industry, such as post-traumatic stress very seriously, and has worked closely with experts in the field to develop and implement procedures for the management of trauma risk,” he said.”

“SOS Childrens Villages Canada – CHILD SOLDIERS
A ‘Child Soldier’ is any child – boy or girl – under 18 years of age, who is forced to join and operate within an armed force or armed group in any capacity. It does not only refer to a child who is carrying, or has carried, weapons.
In the world today there are hundreds of thousands of child soldiers who have been abducted or forcibly recruited, or are driven to join by poverty, abuse and discrimination.
Once recruited, child soldiers may serve as porters or cooks, guards, messengers or spies. These children may even be pressed into combat, as the proliferation of small automatic weapons means that children can easily handle and operate them. Child soldiers are seen are expendable, and may be sent into minefields or other dangerous situations ahead of older combatants. Some have even been used for suicide missions.
Many child soldiers are left “stigmatized” and unable to return to his or her home community.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 38, proclaimed that: “State parties shall take all feasible measures to ensure that persons who have not attached the age of 15 years do not take a direct part in hostilities.”
Article 8.2.26 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) entered into force 1 July 2002 states that “Conscripting or enlisting children under the age of fifteen years into the national armed forces or using them to participate actively in hostilities” is a war crime.
Forced or compulsory recruitment of anyone under the age of 18 for use in armed conflict is predefined as one of the worst forms of child labour.
Almost half of the world’s child soldiers are in Africa. Many of these children have been orphaned or abandoned due to AIDs, violence and war.
SOS Children’s Villages engages in rehabilitation programming and family reunification for former child soldiers.
Our rehabilitation and reunification program for each child soldier lasts around ten months. To begin with, the children are reintroduced to everyday life. We give them shelter, food, clean clothes and an education. Many children have never been to school and without an education will never break out of poverty.
SOS Children’s Villages helps former child soldiers to overcome the trauma of war through drawing, drama classes and counseling.”
“As the FBI continues to sift through the past of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, an investigative focus has developed on how he earned money and the recent travels of Paddock and his girlfriend Marilou Danley, law enforcement officials familiar with the probe told Yahoo.
At least two points of travel interest were recent trips taken to Dubai and Spain, as well as more than 200 reports detailing large financial transactions Paddock made at casinos since 2014. While Danley has family in Dubai, sources told Yahoo that the FBI is seeking to determine details of all overseas trips involving either Paddock or his girlfriend, as well as any financial transactions that may have taken place on the trips.
Paddock killed 59 people and wounded more than 500 when he opened fire Sunday night on a country music festival from his suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Police say Paddock committed suicide before they got to his room, where they found a trove of weapons that included high-powered rifles. Las Vegas police said Paddock’s attack lasted between nine to 11 minutes.”

The first annual event and ceremony was held on April 12 in Washington, DC.
Ms. Baginski was recognized for her work from 2003 to 2005, when she served as the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director for Intelligence. In that position, she was responsible for establishing and managing the FBI’s first-ever intelligence program. She adapted FBI intelligence capabilities with information technologies to create an intelligence-sharing operation that could identify threats before they became attacks.
During the awards ceremony, James Mackey, a former FBI supervisory intelligence analyst, had these words to say about Ms. Baginski, “Ladies and gentlemen, this person, Maureen Baginski immediately established credibility through hard work the old fashioned way. She became one of the Director’s tugboats, and again, through hard work…she established the FBI directorate for domestic intelligence and brought about fundamental change in the FBI, not only for you, but for the American people.”
Prior to her role with the FBI, Ms. Baginski served at the National Security Agency (NSA) for 23 years, where she held a variety of positions, including Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) Director, Senior Operations Officer in the National Security Operations Center; Executive Assistant to the Director of NSA/Central Security Service, Chief Officer of the Director; Assistant Deputy Director of Technology and Systems; and lead analyst for the Soviet Union. As SIGINT Director, Ms. Baginski successfully established and directed a unified program to exploit encrypted or denied information on global networks. Leading the NSA’s Signals Intelligence Directorate, the Nation’s high technology cryptology organization, she managed a complex and geographically dispersed distributed information production enterprise.
“We are truly proud of Maureen and this great honor she received. She has brought to Serco the same can-do attitude she exuded while working for the FBI and she continues to lead her team here at Serco with pride and respect,” said Ed Casey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Serco.”

“The National Crime Squad co-ordinated arrests of suspected paedophiles across 19 separate countries on 28 November using information supplied by Demon Internet.
The Internet service provider was approached by the National Crime Squad and agreed to allow officers to access its servers. This led to the recovery of data showing the activity of nearly 1,500 newsgroups during a two-week period.
From this data, officers established that almost 10,000 Internet Protocol (IP) addresses had accessed more than 30 of the Web sites carrying paedophilia. For operational reasons this number was whittled down to just over 400 addresses of those specifically distributing paedophiliac images.
The information was then distributed via Interpol to the countries identified with the suspects, and evidence packs on each of the targets were distributed to the relevant police forces
Detective Superintendent Peter Spindler, leading the investigation for the National Crime Squad, said: “With the assistance of Demon Internet and the support and guidance of the National High-Tech Crime Unit, we are able to show that those accessing these newsgroups did so regularly and with purpose.
“We also learnt, not surprisingly, that those abusing the Internet have learnt from recent police successes how best to protect their true identities,” he added.
The National Crime Squad and Serco, its IT partner, have developed facial mapping software that they hope to use to identify the abused children featured on the paedophiliac sites.”

Representation of investors in casinos owned by Donald Trump
In the 1980s, Donald Trump was in financial trouble because of his casinos in Atlantic City. His three casinos in Atlantic City were under foreclosure threat from lenders. Ross, who was then the Senior Managing Director of Rothschild Inc., represented investors in the casino. Along with Carl Icahn, Ross convinced bondholders to strike a deal with Trump that allowed Trump to keep control of the casinos.
Establishment of WL Ross & Co.
In the late 1990s, Ross started a $200 million fund at Rothschild to invest in distressed assets. As the U.S. bubble began to burst, he decided he wanted to invest more and advise less. In 2000, the 62-year-old banker raised $450 million to buy out the fund from Rothschild and make further investments in distressed assets. The new firm was named WL Ross & Co. Staff included four top managers who, along with Ross, make up the firm’s investment committee: David H. Storper, who runs trading; David L. Wax, a longtime workout specialist; Stephen J.

“What We Have Done
Beginning in 1976, CAC grew to become one of the biggest suppliers of qualified hi-rollers to the international casino gaming houses and developer of international junket marketing programs. The company operated in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Bahamas, Caribbean, Europe, Africa and Australia.
CAC is a pioneer in the development of casino gaming in Canada, starting with the operation of the CNE Casino (Canadian National Exhibition), Ontario’s first mega casino from 1992 until 1996. During that time the CNE Casino expanded from 20 table games to become on of the world’s largest table game casino with 165 Table games.
In 1993, with the success of the CNE Casino, CAC developed and advanced the Roving Charity Casino in Ontario along with an operating partner. These gaming operations were first opened in Toronto and soon expanded into Windsor and Niagara Falls to capture the American markets in Detroit, Buffalo and Niagara Falls USA, setting the table for future commercial casinos in those border cities.
Recognizing the growing demand for casino gambling, the Government of Ontario created a Crown Corporation to develop destination gaming resorts. In response to the bid for Ontario’s first mega casino resort, CAC contracted with Steve Wynn’s Mirage Resorts to bid on the Casino Windsor project. Following a determination by Mirage Resorts to advance projects in other gaming jurisdictions and depart from Ontario, Aubrey Zidenberg, principal of CAC contracted with Carnival Hotels and Casinos (CHC) to jointly develop and operate Casino Rama on the Mnjikaning First Nation Reservation north of Toronto. CHC was later purchased by Penn National Gaming, the third largest gaming company in the United States.
Aubrey Zidenberg is President and CEO of ZAP Casinos Canada, an associated company with Penn National Gaming in the operating agreement of Casino Rama and holds a financial interest in the operating company, Carnival Hotels and Casinos Canada. Formerly joining Mr. Zidenberg as a shareholder and member of the board of directors was retired Brigadier-General U.S. Army – James E. Ritchie (deceased), former senior Department of Justice, Organized Crime Strike Force prosecutor and Executive Director of the U.S. Presidents Commission on Gambling.
Casino Amusements Canada has also participated in the development of the Fort Erie Racetrack Slots project in Fort Erie, Ontario Canada and securing the approvals for the Quinte Exhibition Raceway and Slots at Belleville, Ontario.

“In 1967 Paddock completed his studies at Richard E. Byrd Middle School, then graduated from John H. Francis Polytechnic High School in 1971, and from California State University, Northridge in 1977, with a degree in business administration. Paddock worked for the federal government from about 1975 to 1985. He was a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service from 1976 to 1978. After that, he worked for six years as an Internal Revenue Service agent until 1984. Then, he was a federal auditor for one year, in 1985, focusing on defense contractors. Towards the end of the 1980s, Paddock worked for three years as an internal auditor for a company that later merged to form Lockheed Martin.”
“The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) is an agency of the United States Department of Defense under the direction of the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller). It was established in 1965 to perform all contract audits for the Department of Defense. Previously, the various branches of military service were responsible for their own contract audits.
The DCAA’s duties include financial and accounting advisory services for the Department of Defense in connection with negotiation, administration and settlement of contracts and subcontracts.
… A report released by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) on July 23, 2008 alleged that DCAA managers threatened a senior auditor with personnel action if he did not remove negative findings from a report criticizing a large federal contractor. The report found a too-cozy relationship between management at the DCAA and some of the contractors they are assigned to audit, including Boeing. GAO also said auditors who complied with the investigation were subject to harassment and intimidation from their supervisors.”
The DCAA responded on July 25 that it had asked the US Department of Defense’s (DoD) Inspector General (IG) office to investigate the GAO’s claims. “We take the GAO report very seriously,” said April Stephenson, DCAA’s director. US Senator Claire McCaskill said GAO may have uncovered the “biggest auditing scandal in the history of this town,” and asked the DoD to immediately fire the supervisors cited in the report.”

“Serco Combined Resilience Exercising
Types of Exercise Workshop Exercises These are structured discussion events where participants can explore issues in a less pressurized environment.
They are an ideal way of developing solutions, procedures and plans rather than the focus being on decision making. Table Top Exercises These involve a realistic scenario and will follow a time line, either in real-time or with time jumps to concentrate on the more important areas. The participants would be expected to be familiar with the plans and procedures that are being used although the exercise tempo and complexity can be adjusted to suit the current state of training and readiness. Simulation and media play can be used to support the exercise. Table-top exercises help develop teamwork and allow participants to gain a better understanding of their roles and that of other agencies and organisations.
Command/Control Post Exercises These are designed primarily to exercise the senior leadership and support staff in collective planning and decision making within a strategic grouping. Ideally such exercises would be run from the real command and control locations and using their communications and information systems. This could include a mix of locations and varying levels of technical simulation support. The GoldStandard system is flexible to allow the tempo and intensity to be adjusted to ensure maximum training benefit, or to fully test and evaluate the most important aspects of a plan. Such exercises also test information flow, communications, equipment, procedures, decision making and coordination.
Simulation and Media Support The method of delivering an exercise is flexible and will be designed with the client to meet their requirements with options ranging from simple paper-based delivery through to full use of their real communications systems [Red Switch Network and Hawkeye onion router surveillance aircraft] and advance computer simulation [In Trump’s death pool and war room suites]. In addition, media play can also be added in the form of news injects and the provision of experienced journalists and television crews to help test procedures and also assist in training key staff.
