      There are no "disputed" territories divided by anyone. Strengthen the patrol = frequent clashes, there is a chance to quarrel.

        will they cut again? Yes, the mattress virus is contagious, but will it be divided democratically, or will it be tolerant?

          In the understanding of the Indo-Chinese, the territory is owned by the one who uses it.
          Actually, the claims of the West to our Northern Territories have the same grounds.

    At the heart of the ScanEagle is the Seascan aircraft developed by Insitu, designed as a shipborne reconnaissance platform.
    The NanoSAR radar is the world's most compact side-looking synthetic aperture radar. With a mass of less than 1 kg, it has the size of a shoe box.
    The use of side-looking radar as a tactical means of reconnaissance, terrain monitoring, control of structures, etc. opens up the possibility of providing users with guaranteed information in any weather conditions and at any time of the day.
    The range of the X-band radar is 3300 m, spatial resolution - about 35 cm, power consumption - from 10 to 25 watts. Implemented functional capabilities and / or modes of indication of moving targets (Ground Motion Target Indicators, GMTI), motion compensation, geolocation, Pan and Zoom modes in real time, communication via Wi-Fi 802.11g wireless protocol or saving data to on-board flash memory when using secretive flight modes without "radiation" work.
