Army radar test a D.C. success

Army radar test a D.C. success

An Army air-defense unit successfully carried out a radar exercise in Washington last week to improve efforts to intercept hijacked airliners and other enemy aircraft.

The exercise by the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, was code-named Clear Skies and took place during two days last week, defense officials told The Washington Times.

The exercise involved two U.S. Army mobile radars but no interceptor missiles, the officials said.
