China to install sensors along NAFTA highway Documents reveal NASCO plan to militarize I-35. This deal keeps getting worse, worse, and worse! According to NascoDocumentspart1.pdf page 5 that was scanned in from: the Nathan Hansen law office (please note the scans were upside down & need to be corrected) they list the â€œTotal Domain Awareness Programâ€ that includes GPS, RFID tags, CCTV, NOAA radar, and SAVI & NAFTRACS similar to the â€œMa bellâ€ communications infrastructure, from Manzanillo/lazaro Cardenas, Mexico to Manitoba Ambassador Bridge to the North (with the US in between) . This will be funded by private sector capital Investment in their own words. This is to be installed by Lockheed Martin & listed from Â© 2007 WorldNetDaily.com By Apparentlyin PDF docuement 3 it implies MNDOT already allocated $Jerome R. Corsi its stated
Radio sensing stations to track traffic and cargo up and down the I-35 NAFTA Superhighway corridor are being installed by Communist China. They are operating through a port operator subsidiary of Hutchison Whampoa, in conjunction with Lockheed Martin and the North America’s SuperCorridor Coalition, Inc.

The idea is that RFID chips placed in containers where manufactured goods are shipped from China will be able to be tracked to the Mexican ports on the Pacific where the containers are unloaded onto Mexican trucks and trains for transportation on the I-35 NAFTA Superhighway to destinations within the United States.
NASCO, a trade association based in Dallas, Texas, has teamed with Lockheed Martin to use RFID tracking technology Lockheed Martin developed for the U.S. Department of Defense’s projects in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as at U.S. military stations throughout the world.
China has a central position in applying the RFID technology on I-35, given Hutchinson Port Holdings’ 49 percent ownership of Savi Networks, the Lockheed Martin subsidiary that will get the job of placing the sensors all up and down the NAFTA Superhighway.
Nathan Hansen, a Minnesota attorney, has archived on his blog a series of NASCO documents obtained under a Minnesota Data Practices Act.
Among these documents released by Hansen is a Letter of Intent between NASCO and Savi Networks which details how NASCO and Lockheed Martin intend to implement NAFTRACS.
The letter calls for Savi Networks to establish RFID sensors along the I-35 NAFTA trade corridor, with tracking designed to begin at Manzanillo and LÃ¡zaro CÃ¡rdenas, and include â€œinland points of data captureâ€ positioned at Laredo, San Antonio, Dallas, Kansas City, the Ambassador Bridge, and Winnipeg.
Data captured by the RFID sensors would be sent to a data collection center that NASCO has named â€œThe Center of Excellence.â€
The Center of Excellence data collection center will be integrated into Lockheed Martin’s militarized Global Transport Network Command and Control Center that is installed and operating at the Lockheed Martin Center for Innovation or â€œLighthouseâ€ facility in Suffolk, Virginia.
Lockheed Martin’s GTN was developed for the U.S. Department of Defense as an electronic system used to support supply shipments and defense logistics to U.S. armed forces deployed worldwide.
GTN is operated by the U.S. Transportation Command at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois.
In releasing to the public the NASCO internal documents, Hansen characterized NASCO’s Total Domain Awareness as â€œan Orwellian nightmare,â€ commenting that, â€œAt least Orwell’s tyrants had the dignity to be creative with the names of their various maniacal bureaucracies.â€
NASCO documents describe Total Domain Awareness as the ability to â€œautomatically gather, correlate, and interpret fragments of multi-source data,â€ including data received from radar, Automatic Identification System shipboard radar, Global Positioning System, open source data including weather reports, military intelligence data, law enforcement data, bioterrorism data, plus video surveillance and security cameras.
Hansen comments about the NASCO Total Awareness Domain that, â€œTruly, a major defense contractor tracking our every move here in our own country is undoubtedly a threat to our liberties.â€
As WND has previously reported, Hutchison Port Holdings owns 49 percent of Savi Networks, a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin’s wholly-owned subsidiary Savi Technology.
A contract signed with NASCO authorizes Savi Networks to place a system of RFID sensors along the entire length of I-35 to track RFID equipped containers which travel the I-35 NAFTA Superhighway, including those Chinese containers that enter the continent through the Mexican ports of Manzanillo and LÃ¡zaro CÃ¡rdenas.
The Federal Highway Administration website is currently archiving a slide show presentation by Tiffany Melvin, NASCOâ€™s executive director, containing a discussion of the North American Facilitation of Transportation, Trade, Reduced Congestion and Security, designed to track containers along I-35 with Savi RFID technology and to provide the information to â€œvarious federal and state DOT (Department of Transportation) participants.â€
Hutchison Ports Holding operates the ports at Manzanillo and LÃ¡zaro CÃ¡rdenas, as well as both ends of the Panama Canal.
Savi Technology spokesmen refused to return WND calls after messages were left at the company for three consecutive days.
