I am sure that someone has heard of or has actual knowledge of the M.A.D. and N.U.T.S. system (Mutually Assured Destruction) and (Nuclear Utilization
Target Selection) developed during the cold war.
I have a few questions, and I am hoping to get either answers or information at best.
So N.U.T.S. is an automatic target designator and launch sequencer for nuclear weapons if when struck the nation is uncapable of initiating M.A.D.,
which is a policy in which one superpower seals its own disasterous fate if it has a preemptive nuclear exchange with another superpower.
Question1: How is the N.U.T.S. system activated? F/O: Does it activate after a certain radiation level, does it activate from the tremors caused from
a ground- or sub-level explosion?
Question2: Is it still a U.S. or Russian policy?
Question3: Is the M.A.D. system exclusive to nuclear exchange? F/O Is M.A.D. policy for attacks on the economy, or say... chemical attacks?
Think about it, the U.S. government could have already initiated an economic mutually assured destruction, a 'if we sink, we'll take everyone down
with us' kind of policy?
As for nuclear weapons. They are very expensive to produce, maintain, and use, and seem unpractical for terrorists implication, it would be easier for
them to hack N.U.T.S., no pun intended.
