Background noise and chatter + ops.

We are picking up some noise and chatter about Syaria Nuke attempts.
Support from Moles, sources, BSUs, and OSINT.
Here is a photo of an offshore FBX-T. We have many forward sensor stations like this, such as in Poland, Czech Republic, etc. And many on our Aegis cruisers.
The Israeli installation adds to the over-lapping grid of radar we are establishing. Having forward sensors ringing the Middle East and N Korea adds to our probability of detecting launch phase trajectories of ICBM's, that is the key. Knowing the destination and range of an ICBM tells us whether it is a test or a hostile launch so that we can respond accordingly.
In a conflict, Iran will likely launch many Shahabs, before and during, hoping to mask their real target by over-whelming our detection. ICBM's are the primary threat to us and our allies, as they are the most deliverable ordnance we face. The global network of detection eventually neutralizes that problem.
Having a very timely and accurate detection of test launches has an underlying goal, finding Iran's hidden launch sites. Iran has very hardened sites in uncertain locations. Launch phase detection and our subsequent "triangulation" spots those sites.
The reason the Ruskies are so mad about Poland, etc. is that they are trying to sell weapon systems to Iran and our radar defenses make those systems obsolete and hard to sell. We want Russia, Iran, N Korea out of the ICBM business for good and this global system makes their efforts futile and not marketable to say a Venezuela or Cuba.....
