An E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System from the 7th Expeditionary Airborne Command and Control Squadron touches down after a mission on Sept. 12, 2016, at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar. TheE-8C JSTARS is a joint U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army program that detects, tracks and clasifies moving ground vehicles in all conditions deep behind enemy lines by using a multi-mode side looking radar. The system evolved from Army and Air Force programs to develop, detect, locate and attack enemy armor at ranges beyond the forward area of troops. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech.Sgt. Carlos J.
