Overview of Project: The Pacific Missile Range Facility, located on Kauai, Hawaii, reviewed the upcoming Phase II of the Base Protection Laboratory. A document by the SPACE AND NAVAL WARFARE SYSTEMS CENTER, recently leaked by Wikileaks, reveals the extent of the recent Majors Bay renovations. The report aims to, one: ‘add infrastructure to support Phase II sensors along Majors Bay.’ Two: ‘add equipment…. to accommodate sensors at Majors Bay”. And three: “add equipment at Port Allen to achieve 100% coverage and to leverage off of existing cameras”. end of quote
While the local media has remained silent, the Navy has completed its “Phase 2” renovations on Majors bay and Port Allan. A renovation which cost a total of 660000 dollars and was completed in April 2009.
the August, 2008 report explains the goals of the project as, quote: “If the Base Protection Laboratory project were to install security cameras or other sensors along Majors Bay, the Base Security Department could monitor the area and record data 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That data, representing real-life behavioral patterns in a real security situation, would be available to the Base Security Department.” end quote.
The data collected is then fed to the Base Security Department, which collects the dater for behavioral analysis. However, these cameras are such that they serve 1 purpose; Monitoring the populous of Kauai that frequent Majors Bay. This is a simple observation based on the amount of cameras being placed for security purposes, along with the geographical layout of the naval base. Primarily, the base is pressed along the west coast of the island of Kauai….
Exterior military threats along this area are minimal. Conclusion, the limited amount of camera’s used, and the use of behavioral analysis indicate that the renovations made were aimed to increase the monitoring of the local population of Kauai, focusing on those that frequent Majors Bay.
The SPACE AND NAVAL WARFARE SYSTEMS CENTER’S report on Majors Bay also addresses the environmental and historical concerns the project might have, stating:
1, Port Allen will, quote, “Acquire State of Hawaii historical preservation approval to mount the camera”.
2, Quote: “The Pacific Missile Range Facility NAVFAC has indicated that archeological and environmental (I e native birds) concerns are manageable.”
3, the Pacific Missile Range Facility, NAVFAC will, Quote: “Ensure environmental clearances are acquired.” and will “Coordinate for an on-site archeologist during execution if necessary.”
However, there is a stark contrast between these quote unquote, concerns; majorly around some of the ways in which the area has been utilized. For instance, one duty outlined in the system centers report reads, quote: “Lastly, the Dispatch Office already monitors alarms and video from Port Allen, a State owned small boat harbor 20 miles from Pacific Missile Range Facility. Port Allen operates several recovery boats to retrieve drones and targets from the open ocean for the live firing range to the North and West of Kauai.”…. End of Quote…..
For this, one has to ask if they are serious? Does the military think it is protecting the environment after it has target practice in the open ocean; simply because they received the proper authorization to put up a camera?
