Extending Our Perimeter

The new Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS) will improve our ability to detect the launch of cruise missiles at our East Coast:

Two US military blimps flying 10,000 feet above the East Coast will act as a new missile defense system for the United States. ...

It is designed to defend against cruise missile attacks, or the sort of rogue aircraft incursions that happened during the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

I'm feeling a little better about this issue.

Although I'd feel even better if we dispersed potential high value targets, too.
