Device designators like phone numbers of which the communications have to be collected are called Selectors. As Angela Merkel wasn't yet chancellor when the surveillance started in 2002, either this entry or the whole record must have been updated after she became chancellor in November 2005. Here you can read about: - , - , - , which means the equipment, from past and present, that makes that civilian and military leaders can safely communicate. It means that her official wasn't targeted nor compromised. And if so, are there many more of these tasking records in his collection? Although most details were not known yet, the fact itself caused a severe crisis in the relationship between the United States and Germany. According to Der Spiegel this is the number of Merkel's cell phone which was provided by her political party and which is the one she uses most to communicate with party members, ministers and confidants, often by text message. This seems to that the spying facility has been shut down for the time being.
. Refers to signals intelligence producers and sources. On the opposite side of the embassy's rooftop stucture there's a similar conceiled window right at the corner. They will be discussed on this weblog later. This refers to the protection of important information from enemies, hackers and spies. Meanwhile, the original containing chancellor Merkel's phone number has been published.
The display is color coded, with green indicating a lower amount of data and red showing a high amount. The phones shown here were in use from the early eighties up to the present day and most of them were made by Electrospace Systems Inc. This record has the following entries: - SelectorType: a selector is the intelligence term for a name or a number that identifies an espionage target. After learning this, the White House ordered to cut of some of these programs, including the one tracking the German chancellor and some other world leaders. The country code for Germany +49 is followed by the prefix code for mobile phone numbers from Vodafone 0173. This refers to the acquisition of intelligence via the surveillance of electronic signals, such as intercepting satellite communications or tapping into Internet data streams. It was opened on July 4, 2008 - in the presence of chancellor Merkel.
This equipment usually consists of antenna, dishes or arrays which can collect every type of wireless communications on all available wavelengths. As of 2013, there were 80, including in Frankfurt and Berlin. Any comments, additions, corrections, questions or suggestions will be very appreciated! Since 2004, it has been located in the Mangfall Kaserne in Bad Aibling. In this case it's S2C32, the European branch of the so-called Product Line for International Security Issues. A slide from a powerpoint presentation about this model was published by the on September 29, 2013. All information on this weblog is obtained from unclassified or publicly available sources.
Therefore, we have no indication about what form of surveillance has taken place: were only metadata gathered or also conversations recorded and text messages stored? In Berlin, Vodafone mostly uses microwave transmissions on its mobile network and intelligence agencies can intercepted these without much effort. According to the there was an internal government review which turned up that the agency was monitoring some 35 world leaders. It is responsible for the protection of government networks, among other duties. This unit can apparently intercept cell phone signals while simultaneously locating people of interest. The embassy wouldn't let reporters and politicians in to take a look inside the rooftop structure, probably also because only people with the proper security clearance are allowed to enter these areas. And was this continuously, or given the presumably small number of German linguists only when there was a more specific need for information? But shortly after the eavesdropping came out publicly, the heat signature dropped dramatically. This because there was no sufficient hard evidence: no original documents were provided, and also Edward Snowden seemed not to have any personal insights in this matter.
