OVER-THE -HORIZON RADAR (a) STUDY. — (1) The Secretary of Defense, acting through the Joint Electronics Warfare Center, shall conduct a study to examine the need for an over-the-horizon radar in the central part of the United States directed toward Mexico. (2) In carrying out such study, the Secretary shall assess— (A) the capability of the over-the-horizon radar against small targets, including single engine aircraft of the type used in drug trafficking; (B) the ability of the over-the-horizon radar to correlate such targets with existing civilian air traffic; and (C) the relative cost and operational effectiveness of an overthe-horizon radar compared with continued investment in other types of radars, such as the Small Aerostat System, land based aerostats, and the Caribbean based radar system.
