JERUSALEM - Aviation experts said Israeli may have used new U.S.-developed technology to invade Syria's airspace undetected.
Israeli jets, which lack stealth equipment, may have used the technology to manipulate Syrian communication networks and trick them into seeing false targets, U.S. aerospace experts told Aviation Week magazine.
The "Suter" airborne network attack system lets users invade enemy communication networks, to "see what enemy sensors see," the magazine reported. The technology directs "data streams" to include false targets and misleading algorithms, Ynetnews.com reported Friday.
After weeks of silence, Israeli admitted it attacked a military installation inside Syria Sept. 6. Syria has denied western intelligence reports Israeli jets destroyed a cache of nuclear material smuggled into Syria from North Korea.
Russian experts reportedly are studying why two Russian-built radar systems in Syria didn't detect the Israeli jets. Iran reportedly has two of the same radar systems on order from Russia and may have paid for the one in Syria, Ynetnews.com reported.
