Yes Start War is just around the corner

The Air Force will base a Space Fence radar site on Kwajalein Island in the Republic of the Marshall Islands with initial operations capability planned for fiscal 2017.

The Fence will provide a critical Space Surveillance Network capability needed to give warfighters the ability to maintain a full and accurate orbital catalog, ensure orbital safety and perform conjunction assessments.

The Fence will have greater sensitivity, allowing it to detect, track and measure an object the size of a softball orbiting more than 1,200 miles in space. Because it is an uncued tracking system, it will provide evidence of satellite break-ups, collisions or unexpected maneuvers of satellites. -First-Phase-of-Next-Generation-Space-Fence-05511%2F&ei=Q55lUOm1D8HNiwK2-oDADg&usg=AFQjCNHNXOxtHgYqGS3nf9o4j5DPusgpPQ&sig2=EYzXQU15VqDPKMkoeOOKpQ C0QsAQ

Ho here something I did not know

May 23/12: Canadian help. Canada’s Department of National Defence (DND) announces a long-term partnership with the Pentagon on Space Situational Awareness (SSA). Better yet, they’re offering concrete help.

Canada already helps the USA with space surveillance, through the joint use of some NORAD radars with a secondary space-tracking capability. Now, it’s going to add an optical satellite called Sapphire, whose data will be contributed to the U.S. Space Surveillance Network. Sapphire is scheduled for launch later in 2012, atop an Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota, in southern India.

Ya just one big family Mexico,USA, Canada

Very cool stuff.
This will be nice in identifying space junk atmospheric entry, possibly meteor showers (depending on it's sensitivity on picking up new objects), as well as potentially seeing and tracking any other foreign objects that might pop up.

It may even be a step toward having something like a space-traffic control tower.

On another note, I want to know where I can get some of those really huge wall-sized monitors.

A fence on the ground.
I thought you needed a base in the air to spot incoming war heads.
Then the Star War weapon defenses would neutralize the threat.

Russia complained it would cost them too much and US cancelled Star Wars.
So now its back to ground stations.

Reagan's Star Wars was a touch into Tesla tech that Russia knows as well and
had to remind everyone not to go there. The last time was JFK and von Braun
going to the Moon the non Tesla tech way causing the Moon Landing conspiracy
