DHS funded the week-long Kestrel surveillance test.

Logos Technologies successfully showcased its Kestrel day/night wide-area persistent surveillance system at a Department of Homeland Security demonstration in Nogales, Ariz. Funded by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate, the week-long test allowed Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents to evaluate the already battle-proven Kestrel for border security use.

Mounted on a Raven Aerostar aerostat and working in tandem with an L-3 Wescam MX camera, Kestrel was able to scan a city-sized area and help CBP agents identify dozens of illicit activities in progress.
Thanks to the Logos-led team, authorities apprehended 30 suspects on the first night of the demonstration alone and made a total of 80 arrests during the course of the week.

“The coverage was amazing,” said a senior CBP official. “We were able to see activities happening in different parts of the city all at the same time. We could keep an eye on one area while dispatching agents to other areas.”
