I love the Pick-Up-Sticks reference to ESM. I often referred to it that way when I was still a NASO.Eye In The Sky said:True, but it was a definite step in the right direction in the "threat rec" "platform/Force protection" aspects.
Block 3 Pick-Up-Sticks was much better than Block 2. (anyone who hasn't seen what an ESM display looks like when it goes 'operational'...the 34 second mark in this video is pretty accurate. Then the *fun* starts).
It's still easier on the head than the Acoustic System, though... ;D Catchy tune!!
