US Border Patrol

The United States Border Patrol (USBP) is an American federal law enforcement agency. Its mission is to detect and prevent illegal aliens, terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering the United States, and prevent illegal trafficking of people and contraband. It is the mobile, uniformed law enforcement arm of U.S Customs and Border Protection (CBP), a component of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The Mexico–United States barrier is a series of walls and fences along the Mexico-United States border aimed at preventing illegal crossings from Mexico into the United States and monitored by the United States Border Patrol. The total length of the continental border is approximately 2,000 miles.

US-Mexico Wall with Border Patrol

The use of autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) armed with our SmartRounds™ non-lethal weapon systems would help to make the border wall more effective and less dangerous for those trying to cross the border illegally. The fuel cell powered UAVs would stay perched on US located poles that are equipped with hydrogen tanks to keep the UAVs filled at all times. Hydrogen powered fuel cells allow for hours of flight time.

When the UAVs sense human activity on or under the wall they would deploy to that location and confront the illegal alien(s), firing its non-lethal rounds to disarm or disable the alien(s), if necessary. The UAV would immediately radio Border patrol agents who would arrive on the scene to apprehend the intruder(s).

Note: Federal law prohibits arming civilian UAVs with firearms or any other lethal weapon. North Dakota police are allowed to arm their UAVs with less-than-lethal or non-lethal weapons. These weapons include, Tasers, pepper spray, rubber balls, tear gas. Arming civilian UAVs with SmartRounds™ non-lethal weapon systems for US border patrol use will make the border barrier more effective and still not injure those trying to cross the border illegally.
