Israel to Iran: You better watch out

New Eros B Satellite can see objects as small as two feet across.
Asked if Iran should be wary of the Eros B, Eckhaus said: "If they are doing only good things they don't have to be afraid ... but this camera has outstanding capability and can detect and provide a lot of information including (from) Iran."

Eckhaus said Eros B will join an earlier version of the satellite, Eros A, which was launched in December 2000. Both are set to augment the work of Israel's declared military spy satellite, Ofek 5, which regularly passes over Arab territory.
