The bombing of the Russian airliner reflects the long conflict between Islamic extremists and Egypt that has spread south to the coastal fantasy land.21:26 25.11.15 | 0 comments
Jake, perhaps you are not a technical person and do not understand the way the guidance system works. The bomb needs to get the coordinates (exact position) of the target, and this can be given to it either before the bombing flight gets on its way or even during the flight (by an onboard computer). This is not yet the guidance issue. To guide the bomb to the target it needs to communicate with a satellite in order to know its exact position at the moment so it can correct its trajectory during its fall to earth. The position is given by triangulation of 3 satellites. It cannot be done by the plane. As I suggested to you in another forum, before you criticize somebody, and especially someone with some knowledge, be very careful about your criticism. Be sure of your facts. The criticized person is bound to look carefully at what you say. Perhaps you are used to dealing with jerks and have no sense of the necessary caution. It shows again and again.
