ABSTRACT
The article reports on the defense capabilities of Pave Phased Array Warning System (PAWS) in the detection of missile attacks in North America. It states that Airmen and radar satellite systems are monitoring attacks round the clock to protect America. It also notes that several radar stations were already scattered around the globe which have their own communication systems, power plants and security personnel. Moreover, a new Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) will also be set online.
