"US sends mobile sensors, electronic fences to block further ISIS Mid East expansion"
"American experts are overseeing a lightning operation for providing Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan and Israel with either mobile sensor towers or electronic fences in a desperate bid to seal their borders off against the fast-moving ISIS impetus. Its reign of terror is spreading out from Iraq and Syria and creeping into southern Jordan, the Israeli Negev and Egyptian Sinai, then on to Libya and over to Tunisia and Algeria, covering a distance of 4,000 km."
This all reminds of Igloo White from the era of the Vietnam War over forty years ago now!!
Sensors of Igloo White dropped from an aircraft or hand-emplaced by special operations units. A transmitter, sensor and battery. That ground plane antenna alone protruding above ground level that only item the part of the total package visible. Sensors of the magnetic, seismic or audio variety.
"Operation Igloo White was a covert United States joint military electronic warfare operation conducted from late January 1968 until February 1973, during the Vietnam War. These missions were carried out by . . . a U.S. Air Force unit flying modified EC-121R Warning Star aircraft, and VO-67, a specialized U.S. Navy unit flying highly modified OP-2E Neptune aircraft. This state-of-the-art operation utilized electronic sensors, computers, and communications relay aircraft in an attempt to automate intelligence collection. The system would then assist in the direction of strike aircraft to their targets. The objective of those attacks was the logistical system of the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) that snaked through southeastern Laos and was known as the Ho Chi Minh Trai"
The Igloo White facility at the time the LARGEST BUILDING IN ALL OF SOUTHEAST ASIA!
Igloo White deemed in the final [?] analysis as less effective than anticipated for a variety of reasons IT OBVIOUSLY BEING HOPED IN THE MODERN CONTEXT THAT IMPROVED MICRO-ELECTRONICS AND ADVANCED COMPUTER PROCESSING ABLE TO PROVIDE TARGETING DATA VALID AND WORTHWHILE!
