The US Air Force is at the forefront of bolstering North American defense capabilities in response to evolving global threats. With the increasing sophistication of Russian cruise missiles, it is proactively upgrading its radar systems.
This enhancement focuses on the strategic deployment of advanced Over-The-Horizon Radars (OTHR) capable of detecting threats that traditional systems might miss. In a joint effort with Canada, this initiative underscores the commitment of the US Air Force to maintain air superiority and safeguard national security against emerging aerial dangers.
Strategic Radar Development Against Russian Threats
The US Air Force is actively progressing with its strategic plan to construct homeland-defense radars, targeting the detection of a newer generation of Russian cruise missiles.
This plan includes acquiring and installing six long-range radars. Four are for the US and two for Canada, significantly expanding North American air defense capabilities.
