in border technology
In a move that could revolutionize
border control, American Border Patrol, a non-profit [501(c)3]
organization is beginning testing of a border surveillance camera
that can be operated over the Internet. The camera provides live
color video with pan-and-tilt and optical and digital zoom capability.
According to Glenn Spencer, head of ABP, the system will use
volunteers to monitor the border for, say, one hour per day.
The operators will be able to control the pan-and-tilt, zoom
and other camera controls. "By spreading the task among
many volunteers we greatly increase the vigilance factor,"
