"Today marks the beginning of new chapter in using unmanned aircraft systems to secure our nation's borders as Predator B offers the CBP a superior over land reconnaissance solution," said Thomas J. Cassidy, Jr., president, Aircraft Systems Group, General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc.

"The ability to meet CBP's aggressive delivery schedule of 30 days from contract award was no doubt key to realizing today's historical moment."

The Predator B system, which will provide long-endurance surveillance and communications relay in support of the CBP's Arizona Control Initiative (ABCI), will be operated and maintained by GA-ASI personnel in close cooperation with CBP Border Patrol agents who will assist in the command and control of the UAS from a Ground Control Station (GCS) located at Ft. Huachuca.


Entire article


Imagine with they armed it and announced a shoot-on-site policy. That would probably reduce the number of drug runners and illegal immigrants by half. Since Predator B carries eight Hellfires or one 500 lb laser guided bomb, and who knows how many Viper Strikes or SDBs it could carry.

What else can you do when Illegals are disrupting Military training exercises along the south western sates, directly hindering the training process of our armed forces.

Hey, civil rights guy, for one, they are mexicans and others who are not americans, and why dont you come back and tell me how u feel when your dad loses his job to an illegal bean. Maybe when it hits home, and you finally see why we are trying to stop illegals, then youll understand.
