Arizona (ABP-4/30/03) -- A test of the capability of the American Border Patrol
(ABP) Border Hawk UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) to locate
border intruders was passed with flying colors Wednesday. According
to ABP officials, a group of ABP "Hawkeyes" (ABP volunteers)
following a well known route into the U.S. from Mexico was spotted
at the ABP base station watching telemetered images from the
Border Hawk camera as it flew over the San Pedro River. "There
is now no question that the Border Hawk can do the job, "
said Glenn Spencer of ABP.
