Yeah, it seems there was some kind of issue last year that called for the review of all uploaded technical reports and removal of ones that compromise national security. Or something to that effect.

Hopefully someone's been saving all of these documents before the purge.

FAIL

Yeah because a parachute design meant to spiral totally poses a threat to US of 'Murica. :P

Leela, who knows but a rotary parachute is quite useful to submunitions. Just read the patent description you linked to.

possibly yes but depending on the weight and size of the sub munition such as the HB 876 and SG357 sub munitions which are both parachut deployed, the rotation of the parachute may provide enough force to off set the centre of gravity causing the sub munition to topple in the air and make the parchute inefective especialy with the larger SG357.

While that's all well and good it still doesn't pose that much of a security threat guys. :P

Think more rationally. The subject of the report was obviously not the breach, but it might have been somewhere in the data or descriptions. ID numbers, facilities, mentions of other sensitive information, etc.
