Skip to comments.New Radar Systems Introduced to Secure Gaza Border
Posted on 03/19/2012 10:07:56 PM PDT by U-238
The unique qualities of the new radars, Baron and Baroness, are thanks to a revolutionary new scanning technology. The radars are equipped with a wide view scanner, allowing them to view an entire area without rotating like traditional radars, eliminating blind spots. The new radar can scan an entire section of the border, tracking multiple targets simultaneously without rotating and leaving an area vulnerable. The radar is also sensitive to objects moving at low speeds, able to pick up lizards and trees waving in the breeze.
The radar, made by Elta Systems, is based on technology that allows it to both detect and track targets while continuously monitoring the area at the same time - offering an unprecedented level of control. The Baron and Baroness radars will be deployed around the Gaza Strip. Differences between the two models include range and angle of detection. Their primary use will be to detect hazards approaching the border fence, locating targets both on foot and in vehicles and continuing to track their progress.
An additional advantage to the new systems is their exceptionally high resolution. These improvements will allow for an accurate assessment of terrorists approaching the border.
Officials from the Southern Command have stated that since the new systems integration it has been placed along the border and has been dramatically proving its usefulness. According to the Southern Command, since the deployment of the radars, both attempted and successful border penetrations have dropped 70-80%. In addition, the radar provides excellent coverage of operational areas, assisting troops in the field. Officers involved with the new system have said it is a system that has proven itself.

We should purchase that radar for our southern border.
Individual penetrations yes, massive attacks not hardly. Unfortunately, Israel is facing much worse that worrying about individuals penetrating their defenses.
I just hope that they can continue to hold off the hordes that want to eliminate them.
Without US support (really looking slim with Obama) their survival is in jeopardy!
Seeing people cross the border illegally is one thing, actually doing something about it, is another.
Very Good point.
Israel's survival depends on G-d, not on the off chance the US supports them or not.
Hi there U-238 (for want of a better a name). Thank you and keep up the Conservative hope...
Heh, actually you are right - the Bible says so! We just don’t know or understand what they will have to go through before the end though... I would imagine that all would want to both help and postpone the ending however we can. To do otherwise would be to neglect our duty.
Which indicates that the probability of success of an attempt to cross is unaffected. Once the bad guys figure that out, attempts will increase.
The radar controlled death ray is set for +10 meters.Any one approaching within 10 meters of the Gaza side of the border gets zapped.
This would only work where you have a large, flat area free of vegetation to surveil. Hills mask targets and wind stirred vegetation blinds you to slow moving targets Airports use surface detection radar that can detect a man on a runway four miles away (and clearly detect the wake of a 16 foot boat in the Mystic River). Surface detection radar are just modified marine navigation radar, spinning at 60 RPM. Airport surveillance radar do not use Doppler.
The Israeli radar seems to be a phased array that uses Doppler to distinguish slow moving targets from ground clutter. What do they do in the rain? Basically, you are inviting intruders to come in on rainy days. The standard deviation of the velocity of rain clutter is about 2-4 meters per second, which would completely mask a person walking.
