Sierra Vista, Arizona (ABP - April 25) -- American Border Patrol (ABP), the high-tech organization that is "shedding light" on the border problem, successfully flew its "Border Hawk," an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), and sent live video images from the UAV out over the Internet through the MIST system. According to ABP president, Glenn Spencer, the success of the UAV test will pave the way to the development of a comprehensive, low-cost system of detection and surveillance along America's borders. "This is an important step in reaching our goal of showing how technology can be used to solve the border problem," Spencer said. Spencer said the Border Hawk will be in operation on the border in the next day or so.
