Commentary and Opinions

Leaving Seattle recently, I was in for a surprise. As six of my colleagues and I stood in line for an airport security check, we were all told to step aside for secondary screening. They wanted to search our turbans -- mandatory religious articles of our Sikh faith. Each of us was pulled out of line while other passengers stared at the group being corralled. As several screeners investigated our turbans, the wasted time and resources made me uneasy.
Missing person searches cost taxpayers more than $1 billion annually. According to the Alzheimer's Association, there are currently 5.3 million Americans living with Alzheimer's disease — 70 percent are likely to wander throughout the course of their disability. Furthermore, 1.5 million in the U.S. currently have autism. A survey conducted by the National Autism Association showed that 92 percent of children with autism are prone to wandering. As the population of at-risk individuals continues to grow, the need for a cost-effective location solution for law enforcement and government agencies is critical.
Noted author and intelligence professional, Mark Lowenthal, asserts, 'The best analytical tool remains a really good analyst.' But how does a bright civilian become a really good analyst? What preparation brings about such a transformation? It has been reported that, 'an individual's analytic skill results from a combination of innate qualities, acquired experience, and relevant education.' These cognitive attributes include behavioral traits (the ability to perform specific tasks) and knowledge (learned information about precise subjects) obtained via formal education.
The business of competing in the new global economy and the business of protecting our national interests can no longer tolerate a 'damage control' approach to securing critical commercial, military and government infrastructure and information. The corporate security director's and intelligence officer's worst nightmare is the potential compromise of their organization's assets, intellectual property and state secrets by an insider who has access and is motivated to inflict damage. This can come from a variety of directions. Hostile groups and individuals can and do place themselves within organizations in order to steal valuable assets they have targeted.   Also, long time employees are often tempted and corrupted by those same hostile groups to betray the trust placed in them and compromise themselves, businesses and government organizations.
Defending the nation's borders, supporting law enforcement efforts and enhancing our disaster response capabilities are areas where low tech and high tech merge, particularly when it pertains to aerial surveillance and communications platforms.   Tethered aerostats, on the low tech side of things, have been used in a variety of aerial platforms for several decades.  However, their size, expense, cumbersome mobility and operational issues have limited their use to mostly military applications, or sporadic use for border control.
