Can I borrow your chimney?

While going through the Defense Technology International (DTI) archives, opswarfare found an example of ingenuity in the article, "Blue Revolution" (nxtbook!). Apparently, a radar and a Forward Looking Infra-Red (FLIR) is mounted on top of "...a 250-meter electric company chimney".

Some of you may be thinking, "What if the chimney is attacked?". Well, the Israelis placed a 2nd system on a mobile platform nearby, for redundancy purposes.
