DoD: Are Test Ranges vulnerable to foreign firms spying

Hi

Well until proven otherwise I would suggest that they are, and that suitable measures should be undertaken to mitigate any possible spying!

Quote:
The Defense Department does not know whether its hundreds of testing and training ranges in the U.S. are vulnerable to spying by foreign entities doing business near those properties, according to a report released Tuesday by the Government Accountability Office.

“DOD has not conducted a risk assessment that includes prioritizing ranges based on mission criticality, determining their vulnerabilities to foreign encroachment, and assessing the degree to which foreign encroachment could pose a threat to the mission of the ranges,” the study concluded.

In addition, neither the DOD nor the military services have determined which ranges are the most critical to protect, the report said.

Training ranges are challenged by many forms of so-called encroachment that inhibit training and testing, such as urban growth, competition for radio frequencies and airspace, noise and air pollution, endangered species and security threats.

Of the 533 testing and training ranges operated by the Army, Air Force, Marines and Navy around the world, 450 are on U.S. soil, the report said. The bulk of domestic ranges, 384, are operated by the Army. The ranges accommodate air-to-air and ground-to-air missile launches; live-fire artillery, armor and small-arms training; and ship and submarine maneuvers.
Regards
