    Mysterious New Spy Radar Appears in Cuba

    Allegedly China has moved some resources to the Caribbean. Solid rock these islands.

    Mysterious New Spy Radar Appears in Cuba



    New “signals intelligence” facility appearing in satellite imagery of Bejucal, Cuba, over recent months is capable of signal interception, ballistic missile monitoring and tracking objects in outer space, but analysts are puzzled about who provided the financing to build the facility.Signals intelligence is defined by the US National Security Agency as information drawn from electronic signals emanating from communications systems, radars and weapons systems.

    A combined radar and dome structure, or radome, was built in the spring of this year near Bejucal, just south of Havana, images obtained by the Diplomat show. The US is aware of other radars in the same area, the news outlet said, which have a track record of capturing electronic communications transmitted by the US.
    Victor Robert Lee and Digital Globe have the copyrights to the images showing the radome's construction progress and eventual completion from February to May of this year.

    "The difference in size and architecture of the new radome antenna structure compared to the stand-alone parabolic dish installations present over the past 10 years at Bejucal indicates a new level of investment in such facilities," The Diplomat reported Friday, adding that "the source of this investment is not clear."

    US officials have tended to link signals intelligence site construction in Cuba to Chinese intelligence.

    The relationship between the US and Cuba has long been contentious, with former US President Barack Obama rolling back some restrictions to links with the island nation at the end of his term only to have some tightened again by President Donald Trump. Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio, who is of Cuban descent, claimed in 2016 that a "good deal" between the US and Cuba would include getting rid of "this Chinese listening station in Bejucal," The Diplomat reported.

    Professor Manuel Cereijo, an electrical engineering faculty member at Florida International University, told the Dallas Morning News in 2001 that "China is making Cuba a military and intelligence-gathering center."

    Responding to the Dallas-based newspaper about the academic's statement, a spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy in Havana dismissed the charges as lies.

    The U.S. Gov't, yet again....seems to have a new (keep-the-shit-stirred-up) paranoid/schizophrenic obsession, with both the Chinese, and the Russians. I wonder why that is....????

    Interesting how the image is the same for a US system proposed for Palau to keep tabs on NK.

    More fake news!

    Also the same image used for an article about a new system proposed for the Shetland Isles.

    How does the new antenna compare to the one they built in Argentina two years ago?

    U.S. sensitivity over the building of a new Chinese base in the Americas is likely to be heightened by rumblings that the Chinese government already operates signals intelligence facilities in another locale even closer to the U.S. – Cuba, just 300 kilometers south of Miami and 525 kilometers from the U.S. military’s CENTCOM headquarters at Tampa. In the U.S. Republican presidential debate on March 10, 2016, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, a son of Cuban immigrants and a member of the Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence, received enthusiastic applause when he said a “good deal” with Cuba would include several measures including kicking “out this Chinese listening station in Bejucal.”

    Rubio’s allegation of Chinese participation in signals intelligence stations in Cuba, especially in the Bejucal region near Havana, is supported by several U.S. security analysts, but direct public evidence is scant. Satellite images of the main Bejucal site, not displayed here, confirm the presence of multiple large steerable parabolic antennas, probable underground facilities that were expanded after 2010, as well as new structures appearing in 2014, including an upgraded array of mast antennas.

    Doesn't matter, they'll all become redundant when the EMP bomb arrives; either that or a cyber attack, same same, book your cave mow.

    They should be prepping for real threats, not nukes.
