Every day, U.S. border patrol agents are watching drones fly over their heads. Drug cartel members are trafficking large amounts of drugs across the border through the sky. These inexpensive drones are loaded with drugs then flown to drop points on the U.S. side. San Diego recently discovered a drone that had 28 pounds of heroin attached to it. The street value for an ounce of Mexican black tar heroin is around $1,000, so this means that $448,000 worth of heroin was attached to just this single drone. These types of drones are flying over the border every day. According to DEA Special Agent Matt Barden, drug cartels’ main “goal is to flood the U.S. with as much drugs as they possibly can.”
A drone today is not like a drone a few years ago. Now, they have the ability to fly multiple miles and hold an increasingly large payload. A cartel member can fix any drug onto a drone and fly it easily over the border. They can do this while miles away from any law enforcement officials or border patrol agents. As drones continue to technologically advance, the severity of the drug situation will dramatically rise.
The current method for tackling this growing drone problem is gun-armed helicopters. Just to have one of these in the air costs taxpayers over $1,500 an hour. Once airborne, the helicopter uses its machine guns to attempt to shoot down these low-flying and agile drones. As border security expert Nelson Balido states, “This is the equivalent of bringing a Hellfire missile when all you need is a fly-swatter.”
Because drones can fly miles high, construction of a physical wall that is tall enough to prevent them from crossing over the border is impossible. Instead, the DroneFox has the ability to form an invisible and impassable barrier that spans miles in any direction. No drone will be able to cross that barrier. Our geofence technology allows U.S. border patrol agents to better protect our country against drugs instantly and safely. Because the border spans approximately 2,000 miles, our unprecedented multi-mile range means efficient and effective security.
Drugs that are flown into our country by drone can be stopped. This growing issue will only continue to worsen unless properly addressed. Our mission at WhiteFox is to protect and, with an unmatchable technology, we can keep our country safe and secure.
