This is some amazing work you are doing! Mind if I ask what you do for a living? You seem to have a great deal of knowledge on all of this stuff you are doing.

I used to be a Infantryman then I worked with radars and C-RAM. Otherwise im just a enthusiast/nerd that reads a lot and likes to tinker

What FOB/COP were you at? Itís a very very good system IMO. Not easy to track objects flying 1000m/s

2 different bases in Northern Iraq and once in Afghanistan. Sucked EVERY time.

EDIT: Not blaming you bro...it's just the system is not as effective as it's been hyped to be. Seen SEVERAL deaths where C-RAM was in place. I'm going to forever be a hater...but again, I would never blame the guy looking at the monitor.

No offense taken brother...C-RAM for the most part is sense and warn and not counter measures. I was a site lead for 2 yrs in afghan and we had over 200 events during that timeframe with all being 107mm rockets from 5-6k out and only a handful of no warns....All injuries associated were wrong place wrong time deal. (8 events were mortars) It’s a pretty impressive system that has saved numerous lives at numerous sites. We did have 2LN KIAs who were unfortunately at POI and 1US urgent surgical that was unfortunate enough to be in his room during a event which is where Point of Impact was. We worked with him in the BDOC which sucked but he’s good now and lives a good life. Sorry for your losses man.
