NASA To Help Israel Develop New Smart Bombs

NASA To Help Israeli Military Develop New Smart Bombs

By Israel Zwick, CN Publications, January 16, 2008

Gaza City/Tel Aviv - Israel killed three Palestinian civilians in a botched strike Wednesday, while militants launched 42 rockets and mortars at the Jewish state, in response to bloody Israeli-Palestinian fighting Tuesday which left 18 Gazans dead.

Israeli troops in the West Bank also killed a senior leader of the radical Islamic Jihad, who had been on the 'wanted list' for years.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said the target of the botched strike was 'a vehicle carrying gunmen responsible for rocket launching,' but another vehicle was hit instead. Palestinian medical officials said three members of the same family were killed, among them an adolescent.

The circumstances surrounding the strike on the wrong vehicle were 'under operational investigation,' Major Avital Leibovich said. - Middle East News, January 16, 2008

Washington, DC, January 16, 2008 - As a result of the Israeli air strike in Gaza which killed three civilians, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration has agreed to team with Israeli military engineers to design a new "smart bomb" that will avoid such incidents in the future and drastically reduce the high toll of civilian casualties.  The new bomb will incorporate NASA technology for exploring remote planets and monitoring the physiology of astronauts on the space shuttle.

With the new bomb, an Israeli fighter pilot will not allow the bomb to drop until the target area is examined for civilians.  Instead the bomb will stop about 10 meters above the target and hover above with little propellers.  Then a metal sensor in the bomb will determine the densities of the metals below to ascertain whether there are any firearms present in the target area.  Then a calcium detector will determine the presence of human bones. Bone measurements will be taken and sent to the pilot for analysis by the onboard computer.  This will determine whether there are any women or children in the target area. When the pilot is convinced that there are no innocent civilians, women or children in the target area, then he will allow the bomb to hit the target.  Any pilot that violates these rules will be subject to disciplinary action.

It is hoped that the use of these new "smart bombs" will be able to reduce the toll of civilian casualties among the Palestinian population.  In the meantime, the Palestinian Arabs may continue shooting rockets and mortars at Israeli homes, schools, and businesses since Jewish lives aren't as important as Arab lives. The loss of innocent Jewish lives doesn't generate as much media interest.
