He envisions JLENS
as potentially "a critical piece of the system of systems that we need to defend the National Capital Region against the cruise missile threat [like the weapons] that the Russians shot in Syria."
is part of more than a decade of Pentagon research costing $2.7 billion.
Plans for Jlens
production have been cancelled, but two systems have been completed.
technology is radar that's already up, so it would be looking farther out.
Key modifications and associated savings over the FYDP include: $15.1 billion in savings from restructuring the Joint Strike Fighter by delaying aircraft purchases to allow more time for development and testing; $1.3 billion in savings from delaying development of the Army's Ground Combat Vehicle due to contracting difficulties; $2.2 billion in savings from curtailing the Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS
) due to concerns about program cost and operational mobility; $4.3 billion in savings from delaying the next generation of ballistic missile submarines by two years for affordability and management reasons; $0.8 billion in savings from delaying selected Army aviation helicopter modernization for three to five years.

However, relatively junior officers and NCOs are also tackling tough issues such as the development of power production units for multibillion dollar programs--such as the Theater High-Altitude Area Defense System (THAADS) and Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor (JLENS
) System--without the assistance of higher-level engineer staffs.
The concepts, thoughts, and processes described stem from experience with the Stryker Mobile Gun System (MGS) fielding process and planning for transition of the Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS
Live feeds into the ADOC from the aerostat balloon, the Joint Land Attack Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS
) camera, or tower-mounted cameras on the perimeter allowed information to be collected on targets, population activity, confirm or deny enemy courses of action, and maintain a battalion common operating picture.
