Boeing wins patent on uninterruptible autopilot system
Published 4 December 2006
New technology can be activated by the pilots, government agencies, even on-board sensors; not even a tortured pilot can give up control; dedicated electrical circuits ensure the system’s total independence
Boeing responded appropriately in their 3 March, 2007 announcement in London, UK that Boeing did have BOEING UNINTERRUPTIBLE AUTOPILOTS deployed.
Four days after the flight disappeared, semiconductor patent US 8650327 B2 was approved; it was for a processor with programmable virtual ports. The.patent was divided in parts of 20% between five starters. One of the owners is the company itself, Freescale Semiconductor from Austin, Texas, and the other four Chinese owners of the company: Peidong Wang, Zhijun Chen, Cheng and Li Ying Zhijong, all of the Suzhou City. Coincidentally, they were all passengers on the Malaysia Airlines plane that disappeared on March 8, according Eternity.”
It adds: If four of the five patentees die, then the patentee left alive gets 100% of the patent. That remaining patent holder is the company Freescale Semiconductor. Guess who owns Freescale Semiconductor? The majority owner is Blackstone Group, which is owned by Jacob Rothschild. The next top shareholder include the Carlyle Group, who’s past advisors have included George Bush Sr, Jr and Jeb, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, James Baker, Ken Starr, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Oliver North, Salem bin Laden, Prince Bandar bin Sultan and former British Prime Minister John Major. TPG Capital (formerly Texas Pacific Group), is number third, they are one of the largest private equity investment firms globally.
Military intelligence is heavily involved in Malaysia Airlines 370, but contradicting itself and denying the public from needed information, thus increasing speculations officials are unauthorized by the military to disclose the craft’s whereabouts and intel by 25 high-tech passengers, employed by five major defense contractor technology companies, was likely valued enough to seize the plane. One means an aircraft can seemingly vanish is with hi-tech military electronic weaponry (EW) designed specifically to “disappear” crafts. U.S. and Chinese military boast of having this capacity. The US has used it elsewhere.
Two Chinese companies represented on the plane’s manifest list are declared U.S. national security risk due to its spying with backdoor computer technology. Congress ousted them from business in the U.S. and warned American companies to halt busines with them, only two of five such companies tight with military.

(NYSE: FSL) (NYSE: FSL.B), a global leader in the design and manufacture of embedded semiconductors for wireless, networking, automotive, consumer and industrial markets, announced today that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement to be acquired by a private equity consortium in a transaction with a total equity value of $17.6 billion.

In 2006, a consortium led by Blackstone and including the Carlyle Group, Permira and the TPG Capital completed the $17.6 billion takeover of the semiconductor company. At the time of its announcement, Freescale would be the largest leveraged buyout of a technology company ever, surpassing the 2005 buyout of SunGard. The buyers were forced to pay an extra $800 million because KKR made a last minute bid as the original deal was about to be signed. Shortly after the deal closed in late 2006, cell phone sales at Motorola Corp., Freescale’s former corporate parent and a major customer, began dropping sharply. In addition, in the recession of 2008–2009, Freescale’s chip sales to automakers fell off, and the company came under great financial strain.
