New Technology Launches to Help Locate Origin of Insurgent Attacks

Mosul, Iraq
-- Military officials in northern Iraq have announced the launch of Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensors System.

The J-LENS, has made its much anticipated debut in northern Iraq. The system will help Multi-National Forces in the Ninewah Province determine where anti-Iraqi insurgent attacks originate from, thus enabling them to more easily track down the insurgents.

J-LENS is an airborne system that detects and tracks low-altitude and surface threats. The system will not only help track insurgents, but help Multi-National Forces anticipate possible mortar round attacks against forward operating bases. Military officials believe that this technology can help greatly in finding and capturing insurgents.
