Israel's new Conformal Airborne Early Warning (CAEW) system, now undergoing flight testing in Israel, is believed to be the first operational radar to implement a technology known as 'track before detect' (TBD).Discussed since the 1970s, TBD has been mentioned as a potential counter-stealth technology because it improves the ability of a radar to detect small targets and targets with a low radar cross-section (RCS).Details of the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) CAEWsystem, based on a Gulfstream G550 platform, were revealed by IAI and Israel Defence Force (IDF) representatives at an IQPC Defence conference in London in December.
