I would suggest some kind of UAV launched from a moving vehicle miles from the base, guided by GPS. Once inside the perimeter, it drops a couple of
camera equipped, camouflaged pods which snap photos. The UAV flies off and circles around at the opposite end of the base in order to draw attention
away from the pods, until its fuel runs out and it crash lands. UAV should disguise the fact that it dropped any pods. Perhaps attach a camera to the
UAV so that it looks like a standalone vehicle.
The photo pods:
Photos are stored on flash cards attached to a rocket, which would launch at a predetermined time in the direction (determined by GPS, compass or the
position of the sun in the sky) of the recovery team who would have to move pretty fast to get there before the people at the base get there! The
rocket would have to be able to travel 13 miles, but its payload is pretty tiny, just one flash card.
One drawback with this plan: As soon as the UAV is detected, all interesting activity on the base will be halted and moved indoors, so there may be
nothing to see anyway.
Another idea would be a U2 type UAV with glider style wings designed for efficient cruising and a small, quiet engine that could fly in and land under
darkness, camouflaged to blend in with the environment. Perhaps it could deploy a camo net? Again with cameras and a rocket for flash card
Hey, this is fun!
