But now they are looking to make a change to that as the US strategic command just recently announced that they are replacing all floppies with a “highly-secure solid state digital storage solution.”
Well the reason is this, such equipment as the SACCS were created a long time ago, long before the internet came into existence. So that way it usually very difficult to exploit or hack such machines. According to Lt. Col. Jason Rossi “You can’t hack something that doesn’t have an IP address. It’s a very unique system. It is old and it is very good.”
So you see, it not always about advanced tech, sometimes what you’re looking for is right there in front of you.
According to the Air Force Scientific Advisory Board chair Dr. Werner JA Dahm ” Installing a new system is not as easy as you think it is, you have to be able to certify that an adversary can’t take control of that weapon, that the weapon will be able to do what it’s supposed to do when you call on it.”
