...We take a picture of the sky, and the things that are moving are satellites, the things that are stationary are stars," he said. "This gives us the ability to look at literal images instead of just points of light. Before, we've made inferences about what a particular satellite can do. A picture is worth a thousand inferences, because we can literally see what the satellite looks like, reverse engineer it and understand its capabilities, probably not to 100 percent, but to a much greater extent than we can today."
"This funding will support jobs in the region and invest in the future defense of our nation," Durbin said. "In my role as Chairman, I want to ensure our servicemembers, their families, and our military and civilian workforce has the support they need and deserve. Continued funding for the Growler production line will provide our military leaders with the aircraft they need to perform critical attack missions for the Navy. Back home, the funding for the Growler line, which has been in jeopardy, preserves the heart of the St. Louis defense industrial base and its enormous impact on the regional economy. This funding will ensure that the top-notch, highly skilled workers on the Growler production line will remain on the job through 2017."
"I'm very pleased my colleagues on the defense appropriations subcommittee have agreed to fund the production of 12 additional Growler aircraft. This important move preserves our nation's airborne electronic attack capability and continues to support an irreplaceable defense industrial base in Missouri."
"It sets clear priorities, removes $11.7 billion in unnecessary funding and reinvests those funds where they are needed the most," Durbin said. "It also sets out to maintain the U S defense industrial base for the long term."
