JLENS Coming To East Coast in September 2014

Announced to deploy in September of 2014, a Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS) will begin surveillance of the U.S coast from New York to Richmond next fall. Currently utilized by the Department of Homeland Security with great success both at home and abroad, the deployment of an east coast JLENS will provide high quality surveillance and reconnaissance to the military at a reasonable cost. The JLENS is scheduled to deploy just outside Baltimore, MD and will work to secure U.S. borders from a 10,000ft altitude and 550km surveillance distance as it travels along the eastern coastline.
