Such a Tiny Country, but with Big Vision — Israel Adds Another Eye in the Sky for Intel-Gathering

The Mossad, the even larger agency Aman (military intelligence), and other arms of Israeli espionage will all benefit from the latest surveillance satellite launched this week (April 9) by Israel.

Ofek 10 Launched from Israel

Ofek 10 Launched from Israel

Israel is a country of only eight million people, yet it has now launched the 10th in a series of intelligence-gathering satellites called “Ofek” (Hebrew for “Horizon”).  This achievement puts Israel way ahead of all of its neighbors in the Middle East.

Israeli military officials refuse to say precisely why Ofek 10 is the most advanced satellite they’ve ever launched — what it can do, that previous orbiting platforms could not do.

But they hint that it’s a significant step forward in monitoring a wide array of potential threats to Israel.

With the Western nations’ nuclear negotiations with Iran scheduled to resume in May — while last November’s interim deal to limit Iranian nuclear work is officially in force — Israeli intelligence has a huge task: Find out where Iran may be hiding some nuclear capabilities, and if possible collect evidence that Iran is cheating.
