TAIPEI, Taiwan - Taiwan is asking Apple to follow Google's example and blur a map image of its new early warning radar station that can detect aircraft and missiles coming from as far away as western China.
A Defense Ministry spokesman says that Apple should do what Google does; use only low-resolution satellite pictures to show sensitive facilities.
He also acknowledges the military should also try to camouflage them.
The 10-story, $1.4 billion high radar installation built in northern Taiwan using U.S. technology is expected to go online later this year.
The satellite picture that can be viewed with iPhones is believed to have been taken a year ago.
Local media say the radar installation can monitor targets, determine their speeds and fire missiles to intercept them.
