Missile Defense for Popular Mechanics

Missile Defense Illustrations for Popular Mechanics
I had some spot illustrations in the June 2015 issue of Popular Mechanics magazine about different technologies that can help detect and defend against MLRS rockets, like the ones used against Ukraine last year. These technologies include Air-Defense Lasers that are in development to burn up scout drones, Portable Air-Defense Radars to help locate these drones, Integrated Targeting Systems that combine information from satellite and UAV imagery, mobile ground radar and acoustic surveillance, and Medium-Range UAVs equipped with arrays of cameras and communication-interception equipment.
