Any radar system is an expensive piece of garbage if the people manning it were slacking off or didn’t think it was a big deal. I bet when you worked with radar before, you worked with professionals who took it seriously.Ben D wrote: ↑Wed Sep 18, 2019 5:05 amYes I understand your point, but the tech would be mostly autonomous nowadays wrt detecting and tracking targets that enter the airspace covered. And this data would be stored for some time for later analysis if required. As well there are British and US naval vessels with modern radar airspace surveillance. If Iran could send drones and missiles across the Persian Gulf without detection with all the radar resources available there, then radar tech has gone backwards from when I worked with radars in the 60s.
I suspect there are logged detections in a database somewhere, and that someone somewhere is going to be held accountable for it, but I doubt publically.
