UAV: The Predator By: Jonathan Carroca , Charles Coushaine , and Adam Dunbar. Introduction. Troops patrolling boarders and surveying land are unable to do their job as efficiently as possible both during wartime and out of wartime.
Troops patrolling boarders and surveying land are unable to do their job as efficiently as possible both during wartime and out of wartime.
Troops are known to patrol and survey land and when they leave, intruders often try to penetrate boarders often times transporting illegal items and drugs.
Lack of adequate personnel to survey land and protect borders while being unnoticed poses a threat to security.
National and international borders are all susceptible to intrusion even with patrolling on a regular basis.Problem Space
The Middle East
The United States
Potential Issues: Analysis of Proposed Technology do their job as efficiently as possible both during wartime and out of wartime.
Cost effectiveness when doing reconnaissance in both small and large areas.
Loss of life is minimized.
We can do reconnaissance without being spotted, due to ability to climb to such a high altitude.
Some are equipped with weaponry which can be used to strike down targets.Potential Benefits
Future Vision of the Predator and large areas.
Recommendation illegal immigrants or harmful items such as bomb and narcotics.
This technology should be leveraged more to help solve problems for our military and Homeland Security agencies such as CBP, FBI, etc.
As time goes on, UAV's will become smaller, faster, fly higher and stream better images.
They should eventually replace fighter jets, and in doing so they will save many American lives.
They should be used where ever we are warring and harnessed to protect our troops.
At home, these should be used to the fullest extent to prevent illegal aliens from entering the country and sneaking in narcotics.
All agencies should adopt this technology because it is the way of the future. Either you keep up with technology, or you get left behind.What should happen…
