IDF Field Intelligence Corps Showcases Spot and Strike System, 3 Mar 2010

The Field Intelligence Corps was founded roughly a decade ago, and since then has founded a field intelligence school, opened new units, tripled it’s size, and  invented weapons known and used around the world. The corps, currently comprised of roughly 60% women,  has it’s own pin, a new name, and is soon to receive a unique barrette.

Yesterday the corps showcased several new weapons it developed, along with a demonstration of it’s camouflage abilities. Also showcased was “Spot and Strike”, a system that allows soldiers to defend the border using remote control equipment to detect and handle threats. Soldiers are trained to use the system in a special course and have monthly training sessions throughout their service to ensure they know the field and are qualified to operate “Spot and Strike”.
