Canada plans new $1-billion radar to protect North American cities

Ottawa Citizen: 'Defence industry officials were briefed about the project April 7 in Ottawa by Royal Canadian Air Force officers.

'The radar system would be built in southern Canada, according to the briefing. But the system would keep watch on Arctic airspace to detect threats against major U.S. or Canadian cities.

'The Arctic Over-the-Horizon Radar would “provide long-range surveillance of northern approaches to the major population centers in North America by establishing a northward-aimed high frequency over-the-horizon radar system in southern Canada,” according to the briefing provided to this newspaper.

'The radar would start operating in 2028. The preliminary cost estimate for the system is $1 billion, but military officials say that could go higher.'

In the age of hypersonic glide missiles, the radar will simply give us a last-minute heads-up that the Communist Chinese or Russians are responsible for our undoing.
