IDF Invests in New Cellular Technology to Protect Israelis from Missiles [telecom]


The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has decided to invest some 100 million shekels ($25.4 million) in developing a cellular phone-based alert system for Israeli civilians that will help guide Israeli citizens to safe areas during a missile attack. The system will be developed for use by the Home Front Command and is expected to improve the army's ability to direct the public in times of emergency and wartime.

The goal of the new system, which has already entered the developmental stage, is to allow the Home Front Command to alert people in a specific area under attack, so as not to "paralyze" an entire city or population unnecessarily.
