Strategic Weapons: Israel and India Develop Early Warning System


December1, 2006: India wants Israeli help in building a missile attack warning system. Three years ago, India allocated $125 million to develop and build an over-the-horizon radar system. But, as is usually the case with military high-tech R&D in India, the project is behind schedule and over budget. The government has become increasingly frustrated with this sort of thing, as a number of disastrous development efforts have come to light recently. Israeli electronics firm Elbit has been brought in to help work on the early warning system. India has bought several high-tech systems from Israel over the past few years, and has been satisfied with the equipment and manufacturer support. India and Israel are natural allies these days, as both nations are seen as primary targets by Islamic terrorists.
