REAGAN era was that OLD WORLD PRE-CHRISTIAN CATO/SENECA MOVING FORWARD towards continuous wars. CREATING FEAR AND PAIN-----tops on the LIBERTARIAN STOICISM list. Nothing like threats of nuclear war to create reasons to spend trillions of US dollars on space travel/colonization.
Hollywood as usual creates that global banking 1% FAD with our FREEMASON STARS----with the TV and movie series STAR WARS. Space travel and exploration is great basic science-----most people love the knowledge gained from HUBBLE TELESCOPE and space craft throughout our solar system. WE LOVE SPACE SCIENCE. Global banking 1% of course corrupt public interest SCIENCE with SCIENCE FOR SCIENCE SAKE.....they are only in it for the money and power. So, what could have taken hundreds of years to develop had to be developed NOW ergo sucking a thriving first world developed nation with the best quality of life DRY to fund an immediate SPACE COLONIZATION scheme because HUBBLE TELESCOPE of course has mapped out mineral deposits on all solar planets, moons, meteors.
WE COULD HAVE GOTTEN TO THIS GRADUALLY AND KEPT CIVIL SOCIETY -----BUT OLD WORLD GLOBAL 1% WITH REAGAN/THATCHER/GORBACHEV wanted it NOW.
This is why global banking 1% media created all this MYTH-MAKING AND PROPAGANDA over national defense needs to build these nuclear arsenals with thousands of bombs.
REAGAN STARTED THIS STAR WARS----CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA MOVED IT FORWARD AS NOW TRUMP.
See why global banking 1% had to kill free press and the strongest social progressive journalism for public interest 99%---filling our media with 5% freemason/Greek players. Basic science becomes SHOW ME THE MONEY.
Cold War: A Brief History
Reagan's Star Wars
On March 23, 1983, President Reagan proposed the creation of the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), an ambitious project that would construct a space-based anti-missile system. This program was immediately dubbed "Star Wars."
An artist's rendering of an X-ray laser hit an incoming missile.
The SDI was intended to defend the United States from attack from Soviet ICBMs by intercepting the missiles at various phases of their flight. For the interception, the SDI would require extremely advanced technological systems, yet to be researched and developed. Among the potential components of the defense system were both space- and earth-based laser battle stations, which, by a combination of methods, would direct their killing beams toward moving Soviet targets. Air-based missile platforms and ground-based missiles using other non-nuclear killing mechanisms would constitute the rear echelon of defense and would be concentrated around such major targets as U.S. ICBM silos. The sensors to detect attacks would be based on the ground, in the air, and in space, and would use radar, optical, and infrared threat-detection systems.
This system would tip the nuclear balance toward the United States. The Soviets feared that SDI would enable the United States to launch a first-strike against them. Critics pointed to the vast technological uncertainties of the system, in addition to its enormous cost.
Although work was begun on the program, the technology proved to be too complex and much of the research was cancelled by later administrations. The idea of missile defense system would resurface later as the National Missile Defense.
All of the gadgetry on STAR TREK and STAR WARS dealing with space weaponry is what our defense industry MOVED FORWARD these few decades of CONTINUOUS WARS and war weaponry. Captain Kirk with the ENTERPRISE LAZERS AND CLOAKING SHIELDS are today's missile defense systems and drone cloaking.
Make no mistake, these weaponry are indeed EARTH's SMART CITIES DEEP, DEEP, REALLY DEEP STATE=====but the marketing these research as constant threats to national security is PUFFERY.
We KNOW the global 1% are BFF in MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE----we KNOW the global 1% Asian, Arabic, European are partnered in developing space colonization and planetary mining. These movies about WARS IN SPACE-----not happening in this millennium.
IT IS ALL ABOUT DEVELOPING SPACE TECHNOLOGY.
What better way to fund these space research then CONTINUOUS WARS building war products to advance space colonization and planetary mining.

In case anyone was worried about there not being enough Star Wars on the Internet, Disney has you covered.
Walt Disney (dis, -0.32%) and Lucasfilm on Wednesday revealed The Star Wars Show—a new “digital variety series” that will stream a new episode every week on YouTube and will feature exclusive news and footage related to the massively popular franchise’s movies, television shows, video games, merchandise, and other related products. The show will also bring in celebrity guests to talk about their projects and their own Star Wars fandom.
The first episode of The Star Wars Show, which is hosted by actor Peter Townley and Lucasfilm digital communications manager Andi Gutierrez, debuted online on Wednesday and it featured Duncan Jones—director of Universal Pictures’ upcoming Warcraft movie, and also the son of the late David Bowie—as its first guest.
Kicking off the show’s first episode, which clocks in at just under nine minutes, Townley alluded to the Star Wars franchise’s own complicated episodic history when he joked that “everyone’s gonna love [the show] by the fourth episode, hopefully.”
Our US national media during Clinton/Bush kept up all that KABUKI THEATER with a fight between right wing Republicans----FAR-RIGHT WING BUSH NEO-CONS---and Clinton neo-liberals ---FAR-RIGHT WING CLINTON BANKING 1%-----as to the funding and moving forward of what they called a MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM---STAR WARS.
BUSH-ERA super-sized space colonization STAR WARS technology even as CONGRESS we were told voted down these projects.
NASA becomes DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE. Here we see JEB BUSH thinking all these STAR WARS movies should move the technology advances along faster----that OLD WORLD PRE-CHRISTIAN CATO/SENECA wanting to SEE THE MONEY.
Jeb thinking global banking 1% in US are not killing our US civil society fast enough to fund STAR WARS planetary mining colonies.
AS OUR THUG NOTES says in analyzing BEOWULF-----it's all about the BENJAMINS---when we allow global banking 1% to corrupt our morals and ethics----to place VIRTUE AND HONOR around secret society pledges to what is MORALLY CORRUPT-----all 99% of WE THE PEOPLE black, white, and brown citizens---LOSE.
'Sorry, George!' — Jeb Bush throws shade at 'Star Wars' prequels and tells us why he's excited for the new movie
Graham Flanagan and Maxwell Tani

Count former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush among the fans and critics who think that director J.J. Abrams made the right move by leaning on "old-school" filmmaking techniques while making "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
In an interview with Business Insider, Bush said that he's looking forward to seeing how Abrams attempted to recreate the aesthetic feel of the original films by shunning computer graphics whenever possible and shooting on film instead of digitally.
"I want to see the subtlety," Bush said. "They could've made massive technological advances, cause now, the technologies that are available to transform 'Star Wars' into something — you know, another futuristic movie. But it looks to me that they, with great subtlety, have made small advances. I want to see how that plays out, and how people respond to it. I think that'll be fascinating."
We have discussed in detail the propaganda surrounding 5G microwave technology structures being built at north and south poles tied to a super-duper satellite system saturating EARTH's orbit with millions of satellites all tied to SPACE COLONIZATION AND PLANETARY MINING.....going to the MOON today building for MARS tomorrow.
The lazer, battery, energy platforms, SMART CITIES technology is all tied to WAR WEAPONS development which is tied to SPACE TRAVEL/COLONIZATION.
We are being sold everything from END TIMES-----to CLIMATE CHANGE causing the collapse of human race ALL FALSE----to MOVE FORWARD these goals benefiting ONLY THOSE GLOBAL 1%.....killing civil society and EARTH's environment for 99% of WE THE PEOPLE.
The answer to this question---as to the science claims of trying to create CLIMATE CHANGE WEATHER PROTECTION is what this article states----it is NOT POSSIBLE--we do not have enough natural resources to build a totally worthless missile defense or climate change weather control-----------we have known this since the 1990s
'Back here on Earth, Star Wars -- the missile defense, not the movie -- is also back. Uneasy about our present vulnerability to missile attack, Congress wants a decision about deployment of "national missile defense," a system capable of protecting all 50 states. But it's highly uncertain whether we can build a system that could vanquish enough incoming missiles'.

Obi-Wan Kenobi and company have begun their crusade against the dark side in Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace. We trust, when five more money-making sequels are screened, that good will eventually triumph over evil.

(posted 8 MARCH 2000)
A former employee of the military contractor TRW has charged the company with faking test results in the $27-billion missile defense program. Nira Schwartz, who worked on Star Wars software in 1995 and 1996, says the company dodged the truth in repeated reports to the Pentagon. Here's how the New York Times explained it: "In test after test, the interceptors failed, she has alleged, but her superiors insisted that the technology performed adequately, refused her appeals to tell industrial partners and federal patrons of its shortcomings, and then fired her."
The issue concerned the ability to distinguish real warheads from decoy balloons, a critical capacity for missile defense. In papers filed in federal court, Schwartz charged that while TRW told the government that its system made the correct distinction 95 percent of the time, in reality it worked 5 percent to 15 percent of the time.
See "Ex-Employee Says Contractor Faked Results of Missile Tests," William Broad, The New York Times, March 7, 2000, p. A1.
Sixteen years ago, not long after the first of the Star Wars epics, President Ronald Reagan promoted a missile defense as protection against nuclear missiles from another evil empire -- the Soviet Union. Given the Reagan administration's timing and the preference for orbiting battle stations, the plan was inevitably dubbed "Star Wars."
The protagonists of Star Wars -- the movie -- fought with light sabers. In Star Wars -- the missile defense -- incoming missiles would supposedly be vaporized in another kind of light -- gigantic lasers. And these lasers would not be the product of Hollywood graphics, but rather high-tech radars, rockets, satellites, and ultra-fast computers.
Star Wars -- the missile defense -- was never built, despite the expenditure of $100 billion for research and development, a number that dwarfs even the LucasFilm rake-in for the ceaseless tide of Star Wars movies and merchandise.
Right from the first, the Star Wars dream ran into problems. While Star Wars -- the movies -- are guaranteed moneymakers, the missile defense carries no guarantee whatsoever. And after $100 billion, whacking incoming missiles remains a daunting challenge. Only two of 14 tests succeeded -- most recently in 1991 -- and the tests were not held in realistic battle conditions.
Technical problems were not the only difficulty. Critics warned that missile defense would upset the familiar but terrifying situation of mutual assured destruction, which prevented the massively armed opponents of the Cold War from vaporizing each other. Critics predicted that enemies would respond by building more weapons and making them harder to locate. In sum, they argued, missile defense would accelerate the arms race and make the planet more dangerous.
Since the Soviet Union went belly-up in 1989, the political-military backdrop for the missile defense discussion has utterly changed. Russia's nuclear weapons are under uncertain stewardship. The nuclear club has expanded to eight, and missile technology is likewise spreading. Threats, in other words, are coming from different directions.
In this changed geopolitical landscape, Congress has revived the idea of missile defense. In May, a decisive majority in the House affirmed a Senate bill calling for deployment as soon as technologically feasible.
The best defense is a good defense
This time around, the goals and methods of the missile defense project have been trimmed to reflect today's situation. Star Wars 1.0, the Reagan version, was supposed to protect against a massive Soviet attack with thousands of warheads. Version 2.0, the one Congress has put on the table, is intended to protect against tiny attacks by a nation with a few nukes, or against accidental launches by Russia or China. Given the rocky history of test failures, that's a more realistic goal -- although still something that can't be done today. A second scaling-back concerned technology. Those futuristic lasers have been replaced by impact vehicles -- dubbed "smart rocks."
A day time photo of a THAAD launch truck.
But whacking a speeding missile with anything -- rock, laser or bow and arrow, for that matter -- remains a thorny problem. It's not just the 13 percent success rate for national missile defense that's at issue here. A more localized version, the Theater High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), has already failed six straight tests. The latest test, on May 25, was scrubbed when the target rocket tumbled out of control.
How would missile defense work? Even if a system worked in a test, could we rely on it to actually stop warheads? And would the defense increase safety -- or hazards?
When we read the public policy discussions surrounding downsizing our US military-------dealing with the air force--------we hear Congress suggest that today's US AIR FORCE can be eliminated because it has these few decades been enfolded into NASA AND SPACE program. This is not public policy downsizing our military complex or spending-----it is simply a shift from what was civil defense to what is space planetary mining colonization goals.
We had a comment on our posts this week regarding continuous wars as simply the goal of space technology development ---and the goal of creating manufactured WW 3 to destroy civil structures in Western nations---like East and West Europe, US, and Canada. Bringing US cities filled with decaying communities down========felling empty buildings=====is not as TARGETED as global banking 1% pretends. The civilian casualties and property losses cross all 99% of WE THE PEOPLE black, white, and brown citizens as well as our US global 99% of new immigrant citizens. Any use of these war/US city militarized policing policies is not tied to ENEMIES ----it is tied to ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE US CITIES DEEMED FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES.
We can hear our US 5% to the 1% selling this cheap demotion as good for our communities and job creation.
Remember, AMAZON.COMN BEZOS is partnered with Department of Defense DRONE program bringing global militarized security and policing to our US cities deemed FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES.
The Air Force's new stealth bomber might do more than just drop bombs, top generals said in recent days. The so-called "Long-Range Strike" plane – likely to be designated B-3 – could also carry bunker-busting, rocket-boosted munitions, high-powered lasers for self-defense and datalinks, and consoles for controlling radar-evading drones.
These add-ons, described by Air Force generals Philip Breedlove, William Fraser and David Scott, are meant to make the new bomber more lethal and harder to shoot down, even in the face of rapidly-modernizing air defenses such as China's. "The purpose of this aircraft is to survive in an Anti-Access Area Denial environment,”Scott said, using the latest Pentagon term for defended airspace.
To that end, the bomber's lasers might zap incoming missiles and fighters; the drones could fly ahead to scout and disable air-defense radars; the bunker-busters should ensure the bomber can actually destroy the enemy's facilities once it breaks through the defenses.
With just $3.7 billion budgeted over the next five years to develop the bomber, lasers, bunker-busters, and drone-controls might seem unaffordable. And risky, considering the Air Force has said it must stick with "proven" technologies to keep the new bomber on-budget.
Most of the discussion about START TREATY retooling with city busting multi-warhead bombs comes tied to DRONE warfare as OBAMA and his ASYMMETRIC retooling of our US military these several years is MOVING FORWARD. Having an OLD WORLD GLOBAL 1% KINGS AND QUEENS ROYAL NAVY with long-range BALLISTIC MISSILES/DRONES was the goal of START TREATY retooling of our nuclear arsenal. Remember, one warhead now having multiple bombs has media selling the idea there is a downsizing of US/Russian nuclear arsenals.
We will end this week's discussion on military weapons public policy by simply asking 99% US WE THE PEOPLE to think about these structures being installed not only offshore of US but inside our US cities deemed Foreign Economic Zones and what goals global banking 1% working for OLD WORLD GLOBAL 1% KINGS AND QUEENS may have in MOVING FORWARD.
Whether one believes that the Asian global 1% hates those Arabic global 1% hates those European global 1% rather than all simply ONE WORLD friends------if one thinks these are all enemies and we need these MASSIVE MILITARY COMPLEXES for sovereign defense-----please take time to think about the fact we already know------if a nuclear device is detonated an immediate response will occur.
THERE IS NO WAR WEAPONS TECHNOLOGY AS STAR WARS CAPABLE OF ALL THAT NATIONAL MEDIA AND GLOBAL BANKING 1% ARE SELLING.
All this is simply funding what is space planetary mining technology.
'Bangor is home to eight of the Navy's 14 ballistic-missile submarines. Each can carry up to 24 missiles with multiple nuclear warheads'.
Is it today's job or tomorrow's future for our US 99% WE THE PEOPLE? We will not have both. IT IS NOT JUST ANY JOB.
Drones above Bangor has Navy Base Buzzing
Kitsap Sun, Bremerton, Wash. By Ed Friedrich
BANGOR — Who's flying drones over the Bangor submarine base? The Navy wants to know.
On Feb. 8, a drone was seen flying above Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor and reported by a civilian employee, spokeswoman Silvia Klatman said.
The airspace above the base is designated as "prohibited." It's illegal and hazardous to operate there without permission and coordination of authorities, according to the Navy, which is investigating.
"It's our intent to support the investigation and prosecution of this reported act, and any others that may occur, in coordination with civilian law enforcement," Klatman said. She wouldn't provide more information while the investigation is ongoing except to say the Navy is committed to the security of its infrastructure, people and neighbors.
Agents interviewed neighbors outside the fence last week, said Al Starcevich, whose family's 110-year-old homestead on Olympic View Road is pinched between the base and Hood Canal. He told a couple of men in suits that he hadn't seen anything unusual. The drones were reported at night.
"It could be a hoax, but worst-case scenario, it could be clandestine, a foreign government, a cell," Starcevich said. "The creepy thing is they're only doing it at night. What are you going to see at night unless you have an infrared camera?"
Kitsap Drones owner Joe Sullivan hasn't heard from the Navy or about drones over bases.
"I keep up on all the drone news," he said. "Every drone pilot I know knows that all of Bangor is a no-fly zone."
On Friday it became much easier to track down drone owners, he said. A regulation kicked in requiring all drones of more than 0.55 pounds be registered with the FAA.
Drones can fly at night, at least for now. In fact, they can go farther in the dark because it's easier to see their green and red flashing lights, Sullivan said. They must always remain within the pilot's sight.
The FAA designated the airspace above Bangor as "prohibited" in May 2005 at the Navy's request. No aircraft, including drones, can fly from the surface up to 2,500 feet. Besides the base itself, the area extends to the water across Hood Canal and the Navy-owned portion of the Toandos Peninsula.
Security forces are supposed to shoot down violators but have yet to do so, said Doug O'Donnell, chief pilot at Avian Flight Center at Bremerton National Airport. NCIS agents have shown up at the airport, looking for planes they claim were too low.
O'Donnell said he recommends that pilots keep a comfortable distance above 2,500 feet to prevent confusion from trackers on the ground.
Bangor is home to eight of the Navy's 14 ballistic-missile submarines. Each can carry up to 24 missiles with multiple nuclear warheads.
When we hear joking about WHO INVENTED THE INTERNET------it is the same OLD WORLD GLOBAL 1% KINGS AND QUEENS corporation----MITRE CORPORATION. Here we see its creation in 1958-----under MILITARY GENERAL EISENHOWER. Our national media loves to sell EISENHOWER as warning US citizens of the danger of growing MILITARY COMPLEX as if he was concerned for 99% US WE THE PEOPLE. Eisenhower we see below installed what has been allowed to become that ALL-ENCOMPASSING SECRET SOCIETY tied to OLD WORLD GLOBAL 1% CATHOLIC KINGS AND QUEENS KNIGHT OF MALTA/HOSPITALER continuous wars pre-Christian ROMAN CATO/SENECA continuous wars.
What was tied to our US commercial airlines and aviation control ---which was GOOD------was this massive control center calling itself a NON-PROFIT controlling public policy and NGOs implementing public policy ----what we call those global banking 5% 'labor and justice' organizations pretending to help 99% WE THE PEOPLE while simply MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE for only the global 1%.
The MITRE CORPORATION is the structure behind the massive organization of these few decades of ROBBER BARON FRAUDS and fleecing of America------filled with 5% freemason/Greeks tied to KNIGHTS OF MALTA and other OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS freemason groups.
This organization is no more US----then the installation of US FED in early 1900s-----capturing our US economy to global banking 1%.
What does MITRE mean? MITRE is the cap worn by Catholic BISHOPS serving OLD WORLD global 1% KINGS AND QUEENS. So, it is no coincidence that MITRE CORPORATION created by US PRESIDENT Eisenhower is today's primary source of our 5% to the 1% freemason/Greeks black, white, and brown citizens.
Rick Joyner – Dressed as a Knight of Malta
by Deborah (Discerning the World) · Published 6 April, 2010 · Updated 29 June, 2017
Doesn’t Rick Joyner (right) look just smashing in this Freemasonry Knight of Malta outfit.
“This Order, which at various times in the progress of its history received the names of Knights Hospitalers, Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights of Rhodes, and lastly, Knights of Malta, was one of the most important of the religious and military orders of knighthood which sprang into existence during the Crusades which were instituted for the recovery of the Holy Land. It owes its origin to the Hospitalers of Jerusalem, that wholly religious and charitable Order which was established at Jerusalem, in 1048, by pious merchants of Amalfi for the succor of poor and distressed Latin pilgrims…
“The Organization of the Order in its days of prosperity was very complicated, partaking of both a monarchial and a republican character. Over all presided a Grand Master, who, although invested with extensive powers, was still controlled by the legislative action of the General Chapter…”
“…There are now two bodies-one Catholic and the other Protestant, but each repudiates the other…”
“The degree of Knights of Malta is conferred in the United States as “an appendant Order” in a Commandery of Knights Templar. There is a ritual attached to the degree, but very few are in possession of it, and it is generally communicated after the candidate has been created a Knights Templar…”
We do not SENSATIONALIZE-----so we do not believe these systems installed inside US are impregnable-----as what drives our 5% players to say----JUST GIVE UP. We don't as well think many of our US 5% players are HAPPY CAMPERS. Most are simply trying to have employment----and all will be thrown under the bus in MOVING FORWARD for only the global 1%.
We see with the original goals of creation of KNIGHTS OF MALTA and HOSPITALERS during continuous wars by global 1% our health care system has been privatized largely to these OLD WORLD GLOBAL 1% FREEMASON groups........GATEWAY MEDICINE tied to systemic frauds of our US MEDICARE AND MEDICAID TRUSTS.
THESE ARE THE EUROPEAN NATION GLOBAL 1% DRIVING CONTINUOUS WARS AND START TREATY NUCLEAR WEAPON PROPAGANDA MOVING FORWARD PLANETARY MINING TO MAXIMIZE WEALTH AND POWER FOR THOSE GLOBAL 1%.
When we FIX BALTIMORE or any of our US cities we must get rid of global banking 1% 'labor and justice' organizations tied to GLOBAL NGOs with MITRE CORPORATION being most tied to endless wars-----pre-Christian CATO/SENECA stoicism-----recognizing only the rich.
We don't believe data given in these corporate details----but we do recognize what 99% WE THE PEOPLE think is a massive network is easy peasy to be RID OF---

Under the leadership of C. W. Halligan, Mitre was formed in 1958 to provide overall direction to the companies and workers involved in the U.S. Air Force SAGE project. Most of the early employees were transferred to Mitre from the Lincoln Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where SAGE was being developed. In April 1959, a site was purchased in Bedford, Massachusetts, near Hanscom Air Force Base, to develop a new Mitre laboratory, which Mitre occupied in September 1959.
After the SAGE project ended in the early 1960s, the FAA selected Mitre to develop a similar system to provide automated air traffic control. The result of the project formed the National Airspace System (NAS), that is still in use today. To support the NAS project and continual operations with the U.S. Department of Defense at the Pentagon, Mitre opened a second "main office" in McLean, Virginia.
Through the 1960s, Mitre developed and supported military Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence (C3I) projects, including the Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS). Mitre also worked on a number of projects with ARPA, including precursors to the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET). Since the 1960s, Mitre has developed or supported most DoD early warning and communications projects, including the Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS) and the Joint Surveillance and Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS).
In 1982, the Mitre Corporation authored a proposal for the State Department called "Cannabis Eradication in Foreign Western Nations." In this proposal, a plan was outlined to eradicate cannabis in participating nations within 121 days, for $19 million. The report discussed the use and safety considerations of paraquat. The plan would have been to aerially dispense paraquat over marijuana crops. One safety concern was the food crops grown alongside the marijuana crops being contaminated. A study conducted on rats by Imperial Chemical Industries was cited in the report, and claimed low health risks for paraquat. The U.S. Public Health Service commented on this study saying that due to the present squamous metaplasia in the respiratory tracts of the rats that "This study should not be used to calculate the safe inhalation dose of paraquat in humans."
During the 1980s, the German hacker Markus Hess used an unsecured Mitre Tymnet connection as an entry point for intrusions into U.S. Department of Defense, Department of Energy, and NASA computer networks.
On July 10, 1985, mitre.org was the first .org domain name registered, and it remains in use by the company today.
On January 29, 1996, Mitre divided into two entities: The Mitre Corporation, to focus on its FFRDCs for DoD and FAA; and a new company, named Mitretek Systems (now called Noblis), to assume non-FFRDC work for other U.S. Government agencies.
HOW NOBLE OF NOBLIS!
In 2005, a team from Mitre competed in the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge, and qualified in 23rd place for the final race
