After serving Woodhaven for nearly 70 years, Jason's will be closing its' doors the week of February 23rd. For most Woodhavenites, Jason's has been around their entire lives.
Some of the influential founding members of the Jasons. Wikimedia Commons When given the opportunity to advise the government on nuclear-related activities, the physicists who had been close to the making of the bombs, could not help but join the conversation. As one Jason and Stanford professorSid Drell noted, "once you knew what an atom bomb was and then once the ten kilotons went up to megatons, any physicist thinking a little bit had a pretty good idea of what the devastating destructive potential was.
Infrared detector-equipped spy satellites orbiting earth were designed to sense a hot rocket-propelled object launched into the atmosphere, thereby providing an early warning to allow for our own missile launches to ensure mutual destruction.
Jason was tasked with assessing the scenario in which the attacker might mask their inter-continental missile launch with a nuclear explosion. Jason concluded that such a tactic would require a prohibitively large initial masking explosion. Jason worked on other elements of the Defender project, including detecting decoy warheads and lasers for destroying incoming warheads.
During the and bombings of North Vietnam, Jason became wary of U. They devised an electronic barrier designed to restrict communist troops from travelling to South Vietnam. The system consisted of air-dropped enemy-triggerable noisemakers combined with noise detectors, which would alert a central facility and order localized bombings.
The system was partially constructed, and modestly operational, but was never used to its full potential due mostly to policy decisions. This sensor network, sometimes referred to as the McNamara Line changed the course of modern warfare, and according to the ARPA director at the time, "led to a totally new technology that we call smart weapons.
Dubbed Project Bassoon or Project Sanguine, this project was eventually built, but on a slightly smaller scale. The Jasons were influential in designing sensors to detect missile attacks. The Jasons worked with the Navy on a project involving submarine detection. The methods eventually led to Ocean Acoustic Tomography, a method of measuring temperatures and currents over large areas of the ocean.
The Jasons built their own climate models to simulate global warming.
The Jasons performed a study to determine optimal location for the Peacekeeper missiles, which were missiles that could carry 10 warheads. The Jasons found 40 potential locations that minimized vulnerability from attack. The Jasons devised a method to correct for the distortion of the atmosphere using mirror.
This enabled clearer images of the skies for astronomy, and for missile launch detection using land-based telescopes. Detection of radiological materials on cargo ships.
The current head of Jason claims that only half of Jasons are physicists; there is a large population of biologists including Stanford professor Stephen Block. Wikimedia Commons These are, of course a very small sample of Jason projects. Supposedly roughly three-quarters of all Jason projects are classified.
Without speculating about the utility of unknown Jason endeavors, it is fair to say that Jason has had a net positive influence on the U. According to one Jason, Sid Drell, Jason had a role to play in concluding that nuclear tests were not necessary to prove warhead capability.
When the government needs to make a decision about a technological question, they should not be swayed by the political and financial interests of corporations, and should seek the most definitive physical truths.
Scientists, are the ultimate seekers of truth and should be at hand to advise policy-makers about our countries most difficult questions.

What also happened within a year of having put out the initial article and membership list of the JASONs was the publication of the first officially-sanctioned book . Find out about Jasons Deli (Remodel) and other projects out for bid. JASON is an independent group of elite scientists which advises the United States government on matters of science and technology, mostly of a sensitive nature. The group was first created as a way to get a younger generation of scientists—that is, not the older Los Alamos and MIT Radiation Laboratory alumni—involved in advising the government. It was established in and has somewhere.
Introduction. This report documents the findings of the Jason’s Law Truck Parking Survey. I ensured the successful start and maintenance of the project, including helping the customer in the following areas: identification of requirements, identification and realisation of critical success factors, facilitated the project implementation and performed project design stage reviews and sign offs+ connections.
