||Naco, Arizona (ABP - 5/3/03)
-- A field test of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) brought praises
from a U.S. Border Patrol Agent as he stood guard on the Mexican
border Saturday. The UAV, named Border Hawk 1 by American
Border Patrol, was flown along the border near the San Pedro
river in a demonstration for USA Today. Asked if his comments
could be reported, the agent said, "Yes, but don't use my
name." As before, the test was limited in scope and no attempt
was made to spot illegal aliens.
