In just under five months it’s time for C4-Open again … we hope. At present, it is unclear whether we will still be in a pandemic with different forms of restrictions then. But we are working on the event in the hope that we will be able to implement it.
This year we will also be holding the event at Kockum Leisure in Malmö. The date of the competition is 24th to 25th of October
This year’s theme class we call “Royal”. Possible interpretations of that theme could be a King Tiger, the King’s sports car, a bust of Karl XII, any royal naval wessels or just something really ”Royal”.
We will follow the pandemic situation and the authorities’ recommendations closely during the late summer and autumn and will return to our web and current forum with updates on the situation regarding C4-open.
… AND, last but not least, there will be the Swedish Nationals 2020! Arranged by IPMS Sweden in cooperation with C4-Open.

Spy flights during the cold war with Tomas Dal, Saturday 12.00-13.00.
After WWII, the Soviet Union established communist regimes throughout eastern Europe, and an ”iron curtain” stopped all further contact between the former allies, which gradually increased the need for intelligence on Soviet structure of strategic nuclear weapons.
The lecture is about the period 1945-1962, when the Cuban crisis led to the establishment of the ”red line” and spy satellites took over the information needs that existed.
The lecture also concerns Sweden’s role and what we know about the Soviet spy flights.
