A patrol plane unit of Japan's Maritime Self-Defense Force is preparing for its intelligence-gathering mission in the Middle East.
The defense ministry announced that as of Monday local time, two P-3C aircrafts which departed from Japan on January 11 had replaced a unit engaged in anti-piracy activities off Somalia.
NHK has learned that the Japan Coast Guard is to launch a new surveillance unit next month. The move is in response to the rising number of cases in which wooden boats believed to be from North Korea were found on or near the Japanese coast.
The mobile surveillance unit is reportedly to be stationed on the Sea of Japan coast of Aomori Prefecture, northern Japan.

One of the advantages and features of Tesla’s cars is that they come with a huge infotainment display. If you’re looking to furnish your car with a similar system, then you might be interested to learn that Sony has recently debuted their new CarPlay infotainment unit that comes with a pretty big 8.95-inch display.
Granted, it’s probably still not as big as you might find in a Tesla, but it should still be big enough where you can show information like maps and view it clearly. This unit will support both CarPlay and Android Auto, depending on your personal preference. It is also designed to fit into a single-DIN space in your dashboard, meaning that it shouldn’t be an issue getting it to fit into most cars.
