Pyongyang preparing to test launch tube used in SLBM: 38 North

North Korea appears to be preparing to test a vertical launch tube used in submarine-launched ballistic missiles in an indication the communist nation is forging ahead with SLBM development, a U.S. research institute said.
“Commercial satellite imagery indicates that North Korea is continuing the development of a submarine-launched ballistic missile at the Sinpo South Shipyard, including planning for a test of the vertical launch tube intended to fire the weapon,” Joseph Bermudez Jr., an expert on North Korea’s military, said in an article contributed to 38 North.
Satellite imagery taken on Sept. 21 showed that a launch superstructure has been erected at a vertical launch stand built at the east coast shipyard. Such a structure is erected to conduct tests of the stabilization and fire-control systems and for ejection, or “pop up,” tests of the launch tube, he said.
“These developments may account for a CNN report on October 9 — the eve of the 70th anniversary of the Workers’ Party of Korea — that US officials believed the DPRK (North Korea) might conduct an SLBM test soon,” the expert said.
Satellite imagery also showed that the ongoing modernization program at the construction halls and machine shops underway at the shipyard since June 2014 appears to be nearing completion, Bermudez said, adding that the shipyard is the primary site for building submarines in the North and the construction suggests the country is about to embark on a new program.
“Given what appears to be a strong commitment to its submarine program, indicated by the pace of development of its SLBM and associated submarine and the nearly complete modernization effort at Sinpo South Shipyard, the DPRK is likely planning to commence the production of new submarines in the next 12-24 months,” he said.
In May, North Korea claimed it successfully carried out an SLBM test underwater, renewing tensions on the Korean Peninsula amid concern that the North’s SLBM capability, if fully developed, would pose a serious threat because its mobile nature would make it very difficult to detect preparations for a launch.
But experts said it was believed to be not a full-scale test, but an “ejection” test conducted in an early stage of developing SLBM capabilities. U.S. officials said the North also exaggerated progress and is many years away from developing an SLBM. (Yonhap)

Park Geun-hye calls for efforts to deal with North Korean threat

President Park Geun-hye called Thursday for expanding cooperation with the United States in cyberscurity and space to cope with threats posed by North Korea as she met with U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter.
“I hope that South Korea and the U.S. will expand cooperation in a comprehensive and strategic” manner over the issue, Park said in a meeting with Carter at the Pentagon.
North Korea has a track record of waging cyberattacks on South Korea and the United States, though it has flatly denied any involvement.
The comment also came amid lingering speculation that North Korea may launch a long-range rocket in the coming months to put what it claims to be a satellite into orbit.
Seoul and Washington view a satellite launch as a cover for testing the North’s ballistic missile technology, which is banned under U.N. resolutions.
A new rocket launch could prompt the U.N. to further tighten sanctions on North Korea, which has long been under an array of U.S. and international sanctions for its missile and nuclear tests.
Park was given a 21-gun salute and received the honor guard during the 16-minute full honors parade at the Pentagon.
Park’s visit to the Pentagon — the second by a South Korean leader — sent a clear message that Seoul and Washington have a rock solid alliance.
Some critics have claimed that Seoul may be titled toward China as Park attended the massive military parade in Beijing last month widely seen as a show of force amid the growing rivalry between the U.S. and China.
Carter said the U.S. is ready to use all possible capabilities to maintain a war deterrent on the Korean peninsula, describing the U.S. commitment to South Korea as firm as steel.
He also said he expects Seoul and Washington to closely cooperate in dealing with North Korea’s provocations in the future.
Park told Carter that the deal on the transfer of wartime operational control of South Korean forces could help deter North Korea’s provocations.
Last year, the allies agreed to delay the transfer until South Korea is capable of countering North Korean threats, with the mid-2020s tentatively set for the transition.
South Korea handed over control of its forces to the U.S. during the 1950-53 Korean War to defend against invading troops from North Korea. South Korea regained peacetime control of its forces in 1994.
Park later gave a pep talk to dozens of U.S. and South Korean soldiers on the rope line near Carter’s conference room, a rare move by a foreign leader.
“You are the heart of South Korea-U.S. alliance,” Park told the soldiers. “Korea thanks you, we go together.”
She called the South Korea-U.S. alliance “the strongest alliance” in the world and said the two sides will become global partners upholding their common values and ideal.
Also Thursday, Park held a lunch meeting with U.S. Vice President Joe Biden at his official residence and the two reviewed recent progress within the alliance, bilaterally, regionally, and globally.
It is the first time that Biden has invited an Asian leader to his residence at the Naval Observatory since U.S. President Barack Obama took office, a move that illustrated the friendship between the two allies.
“The two discussed the importance of strong regional relations and close coordination on common strategic interests,” the White House said after the meeting. It also said Biden commended Park for her efforts to improve inter-Korean ties and reaffirmed unwavering U.S. commitment to deter and defend against North Korean provocations.
North Korea will be at the top of the agenda for Park and Obama when they meet on Friday, U.S. National Security Council Senior Director for Asian Affairs Daniel Kritenbrink said Wednesday at a Foreign Press Center briefing.
The North has repeatedly pledged to develop its economy and nuclear arsenal in tandem, viewing its nuclear program as a powerful deterrent against what it claims is Washington’s hostile policy against it.
In a sign of hospitality, the U.S. has displayed three framed photos of Park in Blair House, the state guesthouse where Park stays, chief presidential press secretary Kim Sung-woo told reporters.
The two photos show Park with Obama at their 2013 summit and the two walking down the corridor next to the Rose Garden, while the third shows Park’s speech at a joint session of Congress during her 2013 visit to the U.S.
One of the three photos will be permanently displayed in the Lee Dining Room where photos of famous people are displayed, Kim said. (Yonhap)

Grupo LATAM apresenta requisitos técnicos da infraestrutura aeroportuária para hub no Nordeste

Grupo LATAM apresenta requisitos técnicos da infraestrutura aeroportuária para hub no Nordeste

O Grupo LATAM contratou a empresa Arup para desenvolver uma avalição técnica sobre a infraestrutura dos aeroportos de Fortaleza, Recife e Natal, envolvidos no projeto de implantação do primeiro hub doméstico e internacional no Nordeste do Brasil. A consultoria conduziu uma análise independente da infraestrutura existente nos terminais de passageiros e de cargas dos três aeroportos, apontando as melhorias e os investimentos necessários para viabilizar o hub do Grupo LATAM não apenas na sua fase inicial de desenvolvimento, mas também no médio e no longo prazos.

Como principais premissas, a Arup utilizou projeções de volume de passageiros, movimentações de aeronaves e passageiros em hora-pico (período de uma hora com maior fluxo de passageiros) para o período de 2018 a 2038, baseadas em dados do Grupo LATAM e também em projeções independentes de crescimento de outras companhias aéreas. Além dos parâmetros operacionais típicos de um terminal, como nível de serviço, tempos de processamento por subsistema do aeroporto (como aparelhos de raios-x, esteiras de bagagens e outros), tempos mínimos de conexão, área de embarque suficiente para volume de passageiros em hora-pico, entre outros, foram utilizados os seguintes requisitos de planejamento para o dimensionamento do hub: Banco de conexão: Simultaneidade de múltiplas chegadas seguidas de múltiplas partidas que permitam a conectividade entre destinos, em um período de aproximadamente 6 horas; Capacidade de pátio: Máximo de 36 Aeronaves do Grupo LATAM de diferentes portes estacionadas simultaneamente e com a grande maioria conectada em pontes de embarque; e Processamento de

Passageiros: Hub com alto percentual de passageiros em conexões na hora-pico (até 80% do volume estimado de passageiros nesse horário de concentração). Com base em todas as premissas e nos critérios técnicos avaliados, a consultoria estruturou as alternativas de desenvolvimento da infraestrutura aeroportuária para cada um dos três aeroportos envolvidos. Em Fortaleza, a Arup recomenda a expansão orgânica do terminal existente, com aumento da área de terminal e a construção de um píer em continuidade ao terminal atual. Em Recife, a opção apontada é a construção de um novo terminal do lado da pista que fica oposto ao terminal atual, o que vai requerer a liberação da área hoje ocupada pela base militar. Em Natal, a recomendação é seguir com a ampliação já prevista no Plano

Diretor do aeroporto, executando a expansão orgânica do terminal existente, com aumento da área de terminal e construção de um píer em continuidade ao terminal atual. Uma das conclusões iniciais do estudo da Arup indica que os terminais atuais das três cidades envolvidas foram concebidos para operações ponto a ponto, sem características de um hub e, portanto, precisariam de adaptações para receber um centro de conexões de voos com as características desejadas pelo Grupo LATAM. De acordo com os dados do estudo, foi estimado que o hub movimente a partir de 2018, 2 milhões de passageiros adicionais por ano, em 24 aeronaves operadas diariamente em simultâneo (entre 2.500 e 3.000 passageiros na hora-pico).

Em 2038, o número de passageiros deverá chegar a 3,2 milhões por ano, em 36 aeronaves operadas diariamente e simultâneo (mais de 4.000 passageiros na hora-pico). Com as adaptações e os investimentos recomendados pelo estudo, a Arup acredita que os três aeroportos poderiam acomodar os voos e os passageiros estimados, com bom nível de serviço e eficiência, prazo de execução razoável e potencial de expansão de longo prazo. O hub está projetado para movimentar durante a primeira fase do desenvolvimento das operações, num período de dois anos, 1,1 milhão de passageiros em voos de longo curso e entre 1 e 1,2 milhão de passageiros dentro do Brasil e entre o país e nações vizinhas da América do Sul por ano.

No religious freedom in North Korea: United States report

The freedom of religion does not exist in practice in North Korea, an annual U.S. government report said Wednesday, noting the repressive regime continues to harshly handle religious people through executions, torture, beatings and arrests.

The State Department’s 2014 International Religious Freedom Report pointed out that for international audiences, the North has maintained an appearance of tolerance for religions, but suppressed all of the unapproved religious activities.

“The constitution guarantees freedom of religion for its citizens and the country is party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. However, religious freedom does not exist in practice,” the report reads.

The report also touched on the issue of political prisoners, saying that an estimated 80,000 to 120,000 political prisoners — some of them incarcerated for religious reasons — are believed to be held in political camps.

Since 2001, the U.S. government has designated the North as a “country of particular concern” in accordance with the 1998 International Religious Freedom Act. Also on the CPC list are Myanmar, China, Eritrea, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

During a press conference, David N. Saperstein, U.S. ambassador-at-large, said the North is “one of the worst violators of human rights in the entire world.”

“The United States Government is always working, day in and day out, to ensure that its citizens who are imprisoned unjustly without due process and for the exercise of fundamental internationally protected rights are allowed to go free, and/or encounter a judicial system that does provide due process and fairness,” he said.
