Raytheon JLENS aerostat first flight Add Video

dited Raytheon video (no sound!) of the 25 August 2009 first flight of the 74-metre tethered aerostat for the Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor (JLENS) system under development for the US Army. Each JLENS system will have two aerostats - one carrying a wide-area surveillance radar the other a fire-control radar - to detect and track low-lfying cruise missiles and direct surface-to-air missiles to over-the-horizon intercepts.
