Taipei, June 21 (CNA) The Ministry of National Defense rebutted a report Sunday that the data link
interface of the PAVE Phased Array Warning System (PAVE PAWS) Taiwan received from the United States in 2013 has yet to be integrated with crucial two missile warning centers.
The radar warning system and the two missile warning centers in Taipei and Hualien County, respectively, have all begun operations and “are running smoothly,” said ministry spokesman Luo Shou-he (羅紹和).
“It is not true to say that the two systems cannot operate normally,” Luo said, but he declined to reveal any further details related to the facilities, which he said are military secrets related to national security.
Luo was responding to a United Evening News report on Sunday that said the PAVE PAW radar system, installed at the Leshan (樂山) military base in a remote mountain area in Hsinchu County, and the missile centers had yet to be connected. [FULL STORY]
