New report reviews remote surveillance technology along U.S. land borders
From the DHS Office of Inspector General: A Review of Remote Surveillance Technology Along U.S. Land Borders.
Remote surveillance technology is implemented through the Integrated Surveillance Intelligence System (ISIS) program and the Americaâ€™s Shield Initiative (ASI). Among its conclusions, the report finds that the ISIS components are not fully integrated. Cameras do not automatically pan toward sensors when a sensor is activated, and sensors do not differentiate between illegal activity and animal or weather activations, so Border Patrol agents are often dispatched to false alarms.
