3 BUILT BY BEES Two units of Kwajaleins historic de pendent housing will soon be avail able for occupancy as a result of a joint renovation project by the Dept. of Public Works and Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 1. CONNECTING WITH THE PAST Family Quarters 405 Units A and C, pictured in the photo below, are two in a series of 22 housing units built during two waves of construction that occurred in 1952-1956. The vast majority of these original "Navy Housing" homes, as they been referred to over the years, require regular upkeep to withstand the tropical, wind-blasted elements. The planned renovations created a prime opportunity for the outgoing Seabees detachment to connect with the past as they restore homes for the future. We have a great deal of respect for this project, says Navy Seabees Chief 1950s Seabees were from the WWII era. To think that they came through this island [at the end of the war] and then returned to build these houses, the history is amazing. For us to actu ally do [this] construction means that much more. Public Works Planner Michael Hayes tion per each housing unit is at least $54,000 of the $350,000 in 2017 funding recently allocated by Public Works to renovate Kwajaleins homes. The Seabees hard work at Quarters 405 saved an estimated $60,000 across three different projects, making possible additional renovations and civic improvements for the Kwajalein community. Other projects like the runway road repairs, Camp Hamilton pavilion and the Emon Beach lifeguard station are all Seabee-Public Works joint projects that have recently wrapped up. BUILDING TALENT FOR THE FUTURE expands Public Works labor capacities and enables them to meet operations, maintenance priorities and an on-island demand for housing. For instance, at the 405 site, Chugach employees completed the initial asbestos and hazardous materials remov al. Then the Seabees, with Chugach technical experts offering guidance, executed drainage and civil concrete painting; carpentry; electrical wiring and exterior repair. While deployed, apprentice Seabees join Public Works experts on real projects, where they receive valuable on-the-job training. The apprentices join plumbers and electricians and respond to real service calls. They travel to remote islands and work on mis sion-critical projects, says Hayes. The training provides invaluable learning opportunitiesin particular, trials in concrete mixing, which were essential for a school-building mission the Seabees completed on Ebeye. In return, says Lt. j.g Brent Frazer, ment, Public Works invests in the future of the RMI and the relationship between the RMI and United States by offering the opportunities to train. A good example is the Seabee Apprenticeship Program, a learning opportunity Seabee detachments provide to RMI civilians on islands like Ebeye. RMI participants turn wrenches, swing hammers and pour concrete during program training, earning job experience and building an employment record that can translate into opportunities on USAG-KA. It is not uncommon, Public Works managers say, to see new hires at the Construction Shop or elsewhere participate in the Seabee training program. Working with the Seabees is a privilege, says Hayes. Building and work ing in a Micronesian climate has given many a deeper appreciation for the dedication of NMCB 1 and work done by earlier generations of Seabees. When the Seabees build, they make historyand history outlasts rust and weather.

4 World Registry of Marine Species Courtesy of Scott JohnsonSources: National Geographic; International Union for the Conservation of Nature, www. underwaterkwaj.com Featured in the image above is the famed golden cowry (Lyncina aurantium), one of the largest of the world's some-250 cowry speciesmore than 60 of which are found at Kwajalein Atoll. Reported to be rare in habitats throughout the planet's oceans, golden cowries can be spotted in Kwajalein Atoll waters if you know where to look. This specimen was photographed by former Kwaj resident Scott Johnson during a nighttime scuba dive trip to an island on the west reef of the atoll. Like all cowries, the golden cowry hides deep inside reef ledges and crevices to avoid predators during daylight hours. But when the sun goes down, the show is on. Nighttime forays onto the reef slopes are the best opportunity for these sea snails to feed on sponges and algae. If divers are fortunate, they'll come across a golden cowry during one of these feeding trips and see it with an extended mantle, as seen in Johnson's photo. An extension of the snail itself, the mantle wraps around the entire surface of the shell, continually depositing enamel on the shell to protect it from abrasions and other damage. This FUN FACT : the word "porcelain" is derived from the ancient Roman word "porculi," or "little pig," a refer ence to cowries' plump shapes. process keeps a live cowry's shell looking squeaky-clean and gives it an appearance of porcelain. Like most cowries, golden cowries famed for their rare, ruddy colored shells have been used by humans as a symbol of prestige. Fijian chieftains, for instance, wore the shells on necklaces as badges of rank and status. Other species were used commonly as currency, game pieces and sewing tool accessories. The strength and numbers of the Lyncina aurantium species have not yet been assessed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. However, over harvesting, compounded with habitat loss, have driven numbers down worldwide, marine biologists report. Because they have become increasare prized by shell collectors around the world. If you do happen to see one in ocean waters at the atoll, don't harvest the animal. Instead, do others a favor and take some photos or video and let the "litle pig" mosey on by.

5 By Sharon Watkins-Lang Following two and a half years of negotiations, President Richard Nixon and the Soviet Union's General Secretary Leo nid Brezhnev on May 26, 1972, signed the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty causing ABM and Safeguard to become a major topic of discussion for the summer. At that time, the mission for the Safeguard system was to protect the nation's land-based retaliatory forces against a di rect attack from the Soviet Union; defend the American people against the kind of nuclear attack which the People's Republic of China might develop within the decade following the announcement; and provide protection against the possibility of accidental attacks from any source. Construction of the Safeguard sites in North Dakota and Montana were well underway and the next phase, development of a site in the National Capital Region, was under review. This initial version of the ABM Treaty would limit both nations to two ABM sitesone near its capital and the other near an intercontinental ballistic missile complex. The Soviet Union had deployed their ABM system around Moscow, while the American system was progressing in North Dakota and Monstrom Air Force Bases. Each site was limited to 100 missiles and 100 launchers. An additional 15 launchers were allowed at test sites. Additional regulations stipulated the type and capabilities of the radars at the ABM sites. Finally, the agreement prevented either nation from defending its entire territory. A separate interim accord, negotiated at the same time, set maximum limits for each country's intercontinental ballistic missiles and sea-launched ballistic mislimit the number of warheads per missile nor technological advances to improve offensive weapons. Following the initial agreement, informal talks addressed the possibility of a third Safeguard deployment. The Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Nixon administration favored an ABM deployment to protect the nation's capital, providing the nation with the maximum protection allowed by the treaty. Faced with congressional and popular opposition, how ever, "the administration quietly dropped its support of the Washington ring." Ultimately the appropriations packages, discussed on concurrent meetings, included no funding for a Washington site. On July 21, following weeks of interviews and discussion, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, headed by Sen. J.W. Fulbright, D-Arkansas, unanimously approved both agreements made by the president in May. With the support of key senators, the ABM Treaty moved to the full Senate with a goal gotiators hoped to renew their negotiations on weapons cuts in October. The ABM Treaty came to a vote before full the Senate on Aug. by a vote of 88 to two, easily achieving the two-thirds margin needed to approve a treaty. SMDC HISTORY: SENATE RATIFIES ABM TREATY According to published reports, the two dissenters, Sen. James Buckley, Con-R, New York, and James B. Allen, D-Ala bama, held that the agreement was "immoral because it causes the United States to forego an available means of defending its population against potential nuclear attack." Hailed by its supstep on a journey toward ending the 'mad momentum' of the nuclear arms race." Following a visit to the North Dakota Safeguard site in September, Deputy Secretary of Defense Kenneth Rush described the ABM system as a "catalyst" for the arms agreements. When questioned about the adequacy of the ABM system, Rush recomplishment." He later added that during the negotiations, it was the Russians who were most concerned about the defensive systems, while the Americans sought to address the offensive weapons. ument was signed by President Richard Nixon signed on Oct. 3. made on the same day. The Stanley R Mickelsen Safeguard Complex in North Dasystem in the United States, its anti-ballistic missile systemsSprint and Spartan missilesand radar technology were developed and tested for many years at the Kwajalein Missile Range. The Stanley R Mickelsen Safeguard Com plex's 1975 activation was permitted under the 1972 ABM Treaty, but the number of nuclear-tipped ABM missiles it could deploy was capped at 100 (It housed 70 Sprints and 30 Spartans). Ironically, after years of planning, negotiations and construction, the site would remain active only a few months. Very shortly after switching online, the House Appropriations Committee recommended the site be deactivated, citing sky-high operations costs for the site and its limited defenses against the Soviet Union's 1974 deploy ment of the R-36 multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicle ICBM. It would not be until 2004, with the initial operating capacity of the Ground-based Midcourse Defense System, that the U.S. would activate another ABM site for homeland ballistic missile defense.

7 KESTREL EYE PREPS FOR LAUNCH THIS WEEKEND VIA SPACEX By Jason Cutshaw SMDC/ARSTRAT Public AffairsREDSTONE ARSENAL, Alabama One U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Com mand team is preparing for an out of this world product launch. The USASMDC/ARSTRAT Technical Center's Kestrel Eye is a small, low-cost, visible-imagery satellite designed to provide images rapidly to the tactical-level uled to be launched to the International Space Station as a payload aboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 from Cape Canaveral, Florida, in mid-August as part of the ISS cargo resupply mission, SpaceX CRS-12. "This is exciting; we have been waiting a long time," said Wheeler "Chip" Hardy, Kestrel Eye program manager, SMDC Tech Center's Space and Strategic Systems Directorate. "The program began program to go forward, we need to have a successful demonstration. We are conwill be successful." The Kestrel Eye program hopes to demonstrate the military utility of providing rapid situational awareness di rectly to Army brigade combat teams. Kestrel Eye will enhance situational awareness of the brigade combat teams by providing satellite imagery without the need for conventional continental U.S.-based relays. Once aboard the ISS, the crew will ex tract Kestrel Eye from the cargo capsule and deploy the small satellite to its orbit. Once deployed a safe distance away from the ISS, the satellite will power up automatically and be ready to receive signals from the ground station. will be able to measure the utility of Kestrel Eye through a series of tactical exercises and in various scenarios such that an independent assessor can make a military utility evaluation. In addition, the satellite will participate in similar Army exercises in various locations. If the Kestrel Eye demonstration is successful, then transition plans will be fully developed. "We will get to demonstrate what we can do for the Soldier on the ground," Hardy said. "That is what Kestrel Eye is about. Its purpose is to get information sible. Kestrel Eye's focus will be to get its information down to the lowest levels and support the troops in the foxholes. have access to rapid information," Hardy said. "Kestrel Eye does not provide the high-quality images from larger assets but it makes up for it with quantity and turnaround speed." Hardy said Kestrel Eye will be another tool to provide situational awareness data before starting an operation so changed Soldiers can adjust before the operation begins. "A big advantage is the enemy never knows when it is overhead," Hardy said. "In comparison to other systems, foes won't be able to adjust what they are do ing because they will never know when Kestrel Eye is in the area." A key characteristics of Kestrel Eye is a microsatellite technology demonstrator weighing approximately 50 kg that is an electro-optical imaging satellite with tactically useful resolution. Kestrel Eye is considered a low-cost satellite, with a LEFT: Technicians are seen working on the Kestrel Eye, an electro-optical, nanosatellite being developed by the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command. RIGHT: Artist's rendering of the satellite in operation in orbit.

"Kim Jong Un should take heed of the United Nations ernments the world over, who agree [North Korea] poses a threat to global security and stability," he said.
