This blog post describes the recent launch of the Skynet-5C communications satellite on an Ariane Space Launch Vehicle. Paradigm is the company that manages the Skynet system for the British Ministry of Defense. In the movie The Terminator, of course, the super C3I system that decides to wipe out the humans was called Skynet. There has been a running joke that someday a system like Skynet will be built and take appropriate action on the people it serves.
