X-Band Radar in Japan To Undergo Trials over Summer
« em: Março 25, 2006, 12:14:45 pm »
A new mobile X-band radar, designed to detect and track ballistic missiles, is now being deployed in Japan and will begin trials this summer, reports Kyodo. The X-band radar operates at a frequency of 10 gigahertz, and provides surveillance, acquisition, tracking, and kill assessment for missile defense systems. Built by the U.S., it will be deployed in the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force’s Shariki base in Tsugaru, located in the northeastern Aomori prefecture. The radar will face the Sea of Japan, and will be operated by approximately 10 U.S. military personnel and 50 civilians. According to the report, the X-band radar is expected to be fully installed by December
