Predator drone now patrols 900-mile stretch of Canada-US border

Digital Journal

A Predator drone previously used for patrolling North Dakota’s northern border is now being used to patrol at least a 900 mile section of the Canada-US border from the “vicinity” of Spokane, Washington to the Lake-of-the-Woods region of Minnesota.

On its website, the US Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) states that the Predator B drone completed its first mission along the stretch of border on January 20, thanks to the utilization of the expanded certificate of authorization (COA) issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) just prior to the drone’s flight: According to the CBP website:

With cooperation and assistance from the FAA, the newly issued COA expands CBP’s approved airspace along the northern border by nearly 900 miles and allows CBP Predator-B aircraft to fly from the Lake-of-the-Woods region of Minnesota to the vicinity of Spokane, Washington.

According to CBP, the drone will be used to increase the capacity of the US Department of Homeland Security’s unmanned aircraft missions in combating counterterrorism, counternarcotics and border security procedures.
