Northrop Grumman E-2 Hawkeye The Northrop Grumman E-2 Hawkeye is an American all-weather, carrier-capable tactical airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft. This twin-turboprop aircraft was designed and developed during the late 1950s and early 1960s by the Grumman Aircraft Company for the United States Navy as a replacement for the earlier E-1 Tracer, which was rapidly becoming obsolete. The aircraft's performance has been upgraded with the E-2B, and E-2C versions, where most of the changes were made to the radar and radio communications due to advances in electronic integrated circuits and other electronics. The fourth version of the Hawkeye is the E-2D, which first flew in 2007. The E-2 was the first aircraft designed specifically for its role, as opposed to a modification of an existing airframe, such as the Boeing E-3 Sentry.

Tactical assault group History[edit] An Army Black Hawk helicopter simulating counter-terrorism scenarios at Sydney Olympic Park, 2008. The Sydney Hilton bombing on 13 February 1978 was the catalyst for the Commonwealth Government to initiate an urgent review of security procedures to combat the threat of international terrorism. The anti-terrorist agencies (the Australian Federal Police and the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation) were placed on heightened alert and a Protective Security Coordination Centre was established. The Prime Minister proposed the establishment of a Standing Advisory Committee on Commonwealth State Cooperation for Protection against Violence, which would be primarily responsible for the coordination and funding of various organisations involved.

Special Boat Service In times of armed conflict and war the Special Boat Service (SBS) and 22 Special Air Service Regiment (22 SAS) are required to operate in small parties in enemy controlled territory. Operations of this nature require men of courage and high morale who are self-disciplined, intelligent, reliable, determined and physically fit, and who possess mental, moral and physical stamina. Principle roles of the SBS are Surveillance Reconnaissance (SR), including information reporting and target acquisition; Offensive Action (OA), including direction of air strikes, artillery and naval gunfire, designation for precision guided munitions, use of integral weapons and demolitions; and Support and Influence (SI), including overseas training tasks. The SBS also provide immediate response Military Counter Terrorism (CT) and Maritime Counter Terrorism (MCT) teams.

Set up your own Pen-testing/Hacking Lab Network using a Single System The only thing to look for is your systems hardware configuration. You should have minimum 2 GB RAM but it is highly recommended to use 3 GB RAM for a 32 bit operating system. We will be using Oracle VirtualBox in this tutorial. You can download virtualbox from this link [Reference 1]. Once you have installed Vbox, the next step is to download the Extensions pack.

Community Site i know this is a far fetched idear, as it will require a lot of work on SDEs behalf and as far as i know, has been umpopular in the past. but i really want to see what a modern NF game whould look like. using a style similer to the ONF test, (you recive all you need opon logging in) it could be possible to create a Beta game using the same maps, and layout with modern ships and weaponery, eithier as a NF replacement (NO! NO! NO!) or as a new game by SDE. in this article i will lay out my test server ideals. ??

Windows Tools For Penetration Testing Most penetration testers are using either a Mac or a Linux-based platform in order to perform their penetration testing activities.However it is always a good practice to have and a Windows virtual machine with some tools ready to be used for the engagement.The reason for this is that although Windows cannot be used as a main platform for penetration testing some of the utilities and tools can still help us to extract information from our windows targets.So in this post we will see some of the tools that we can use in our windows system. HashCheck Shell Extension The HashCheck Shell Extension makes it easy for anyone to calculate and verify checksums and hashes from Windows Explorer. In addition to integrating file checksumming functionality into Windows, HashCheck can also create and verify SFV files (and other forms of checksum files, such as .md5 files). Netcat
