Cobra program[edit]

Perhaps there was no Cobra "program" per se, but Cobra Judy, Cobra Dane, Cobra Ball and Cobra Eye were parts of a series of systems to monitor arms control treaties. See also "America's global lie detector" for an 1980s view of that. Maybe it just came from the old style USAF two-word code names. --Dual Freq (talk) 23:58, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

"The radar [Cobra King] and ship [USNS Howard O. Lorenzen] are the sea component of DoD's Cobra program that monitors missile and space launches. Other Cobra platforms include the Cobra Ball (airborne tracker) Cobra Dane (stationary array), Cobra Shoe (overseas antenna site) and AFTAC's recently decommissioned maritime vessel, Cobra Judy (USNS Observation Island)."
