Today, likely as a response to the failure of SBINet, US Customs and Border Patrol’s (CBP) Innovation Team (INVNT) is researching how to utilize commercial-off-the-shelf hardware to carry out their missions. Companies like Israeli-based Elbit have installed 53 towers along the Arizona-Mexico border. Another company, Andruil, has plans to install 200 towers which use lidar to track moving objects – the same technology that’s employed in self-driving cars. Andruil relies on a proprietary software system known as Lattice which can supposedly target human movement and separate it from animal or vegetation. Owning up to their objectification of migrants, Anduril’s chief revenue officer Matt Steckman, was quoted, “It’s about tracking objects and activity, not individuals.”
