Japan ups surveillance capability

Japan has launched another radar satellite, according to Kyodo News.

Once the radar satellite commences full operation in April, Japan will have two radar satellites and two optical satellites in operation, enabling it to observe any point on the ground at least once a day.

That ability to better observe its neighbors will be handy, especially as North Korea is threatening more missile launches and raised the prospect of a nuclear test.
