Bally, JORN is FAR from obsolete and has received programmed updates. It has major advantages over satellites in many areas, like constant surveillance that even a large network of satellites cannot easily provide. It is also resistant to blinding and works in bandwidths that allow it to see things that line of site radar cannot. It isn't perfect and has disadvantages, but as a tool in a layered surveillance network it is highly useful and still very much relevant. And we are one of a very few nations to have not only fielded it but developed it as well, rather than just buying it off the shelf, so we understand it from its technology base up.


I agree and as you say, 'it isn't perfect and has disadvantages'. And sure, it is still useful.

But it's under warranted considering today's tech. Up grade all you want but JORN can't keep up with the fast pace. Reasonable expectations for the south but north of the 'Brisbane Line' it's not up to speed in my opinion.

As I said, I used to reckon Jindalee was the best but now it's trailing with regards progress in stealth and speed. It won't detect a sub in the Bight.

My thoughts.

Thank you for your reply,

Kind regards,

bally

Thats because its not directed at the Bight. Its aimed at the northern approaches for a reason.

But if you think the ADF cant detect a sub in the Bight good luck to you.
