Airmen at Thule AB, Greenland, conducted the first 12-hour work shift with the base’s upgraded early warning radar since completion of the radar’s software upgrades and user-interface enhancements, June 23-24, 2009. These improvements allow the double-sided radar, shown here, for the first time to contribute accurate missile tracking data to the US ballistic missile defense architecture that protects the US homeland as well as friends and allies. They also enhance the radar’s previous missile warning and space surveillance roles.
